The LG 5K Ultrafine display is Apple’s answer to Mac book Pro customers who wish to connect their notebooks to an external display.
After reportedly getting out of the skin along monitor business LG’s offerings which are available in 4K and 5K varieties might be the next best option.
The fact that you can connect a single cable from your Mac book Pro to the LG Ultrafine 5K display is quite compiling.
Not only this would provide a display output but it would also deliver the necessary power which is up to 85 watts to keep your Mac book Pro 13 or 15 inch varieties charged.
Now the question is still to be asked, Is the LG Ultrafine 5K display a good choice for a Mac book pro owners?.
The most compiling thing about this screen is its display.
At 5K you get 5120 X 2880 native resolution. In other words it’s capable of delivering the same amount of on screen as the thunderbolt display but its retina enabled,
which makes it a whole lot easier on the eyes than the thunderbolt display.
Apple start users off with the default 2560 X 1440 pixel double retina resolution but users of course have the option to customize the display resolution.
The 27 inch glassy IPS display provides wide viewing angles and supports P3 white color support just like the new Mac book Pro,
along with high displays for brightens.
Unlike its smaller 4K, the 5K display is also 10 bit, which will be great for series, video editing, photo editing and color grading.
Like all modern Apple displays, LG display is glassy, however, it does a dissent job of rejecting glare from light sources in front of the unit while at use.
