Is LG Joel appropriately recognized by his manager as being a really diligent support person? I'm quite impressed at the specificity of responses to Qs... Since that wasn't one: How to best compare 27UK850-W with 27ud88-W and 28mu88-W?

Asked by: zumboo
The compliment is greatly appreciated and the most rewarding aspect of the recognition is your acknowledgment and that you have taken the time to express it. The whole purpose is to provide you and our clients with the best responses possible and your post serves as feedback that lets us know that we are on the right track. Thank you! The LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor with HDR 10 (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UD850-W, the LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UD88-W and the LG 27” class (27” diagonal) Ultra HD 4K Monitor, Model # 27MU88-W have very similar specifications and features with few differences. The 27MU88-W is a monitor from our Business/Commercial division while the 27UK850-W and the 27UD88-W are from our Consumer division. Business/Commercial monitors typically come with a 3-Year Limited Warranty for parts, labor and the backlight as is the case for the 27MU88-W. Our consumer monitors come with a Limited Manufacturer's Warranty of 1-Year for parts and labor. As you have ascertained from the title descriptions, one difference is that Model # 27UK850-W supports HDR while Model # 27UD88-W & Model # 27MU88-W do not. Other differences are that the 27UK850-W and the 27MU88-W have a matte screen that has an Anti-Glare 3H Surface Treatment while the 27UD88-W does not. The 27UK850-W and the 27MU88-W are VESA compliant monitors and both have the same A x B VESA Wall Mount Interface pattern of 100 x 100mm, the 27UD88-W is not wall mountable. The stand for the 27UK850-W and the 27MU88-W are height adjustable, they can be tilted (Tilt Angle for the 27UK850-W is -5~20 Degrees and is -3~20 for the 27MU88-W), and they allow you to pivot the monitor. The stand for the 27UD88-W is fixed. The 27UK850-W is the only one of these monitors that has built-in speakers (2 x 5W), the 27MU88-W is the only one that supports multiple languages (16 languages). The 27UD88-W and the 27MU88-W have a DICOM mode (DICOM - Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine — is the international standard for medical images and related information (ISO 12052). It defines the formats for medical images that can be exchanged with the data and quality necessary for clinical use.)...^IFV

Is it possible to leverage both DP input and USB-C hub functionality simultaneously? I would like to connect this display directly to eGPU using DP and also run USB-C from mac to display to connect mouse and keyboard, 

Asked by: jackie2707
The DisplayPort and USB Type-C™ ports on the LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor with HDR 10 (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UK850-W are independent of one another so you can use them simultaneously. The USB Type-C™ is a single port that allows 4K video display, data transfer and laptop/mobile device charging, all at the same time over a single cable. The USB ports that are on a hub on this monitor are the 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Down-Stream ports that you can plug peripheral devices such as thumb drives, printers etc., ^IV

I am having trouble setting up this monitor display with my 2018 MacBook Pro. How do I use the full resolution 3840 of this monitor without making all my apps/controls super tiny? 

Asked by: Jordansrealm
Hi Jordansrealm. Not sure how you're setting up, but after you have connected the LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor with HDR 10 (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UK850-W to your 2018 MacBook Pro, you would need to choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Displays, click Display, then press the Option key while you click Scaled to see additional resolutions for the second display. Then select the appropriate scaled resolution option for the second display. If your Graphics Card supports the monitor's resolution, you should be able to select the 3840 x 2160 resolution from a list of available resolutions that are supported by your graphics card...^IFV
