An exclusive product to Apple, the 21.5-inch LG UltraFine 4K Display just started being delivered to customers. You can order the LG UltraFine 4K Display on Apple’s website and the price is listed at $524, although this will be more after Dec 31, 2016, since this product has been given a 25-percent discount.
We believe that the LG UltraFine 4K Display is the best monitor for MacBook Pro. LG also released the LG UltraFine 5K Display, which utilizes a 5K resolution instead of a 4K resolution, like this monitor does. Both the LG UltraFine monitors are developed in partnership with Apple and they are best suited for Apple products, such as the MacBook Pro for instance. These monitors serve as a display replacement for the Apple Thunderbolt Display, which stopped being manufactured in June 2016.
The new LG UltraFine 4K Display and LG UltraFine 5K Display serve as a breakout dock for laptops with limited ports, such as the new redesigned MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar. This notebook model only feature two Thunderbolt 3 ports, unlike the Macbook Pro with Touch Bar, which features four Thunderbolt 3 ports, but lack USB-A ports.
The LG UltraFine 4K Display is only 21.5-inches large and supports an impressive 4K resolution on this size, which is actually over 9.4 million pixels! The exact screen resolution is specified as 4096 by 2304 pixels, so this is actually even better than 4K UHD, but we’ll continue referring to this resolution as 4K UHD. This results in a very high PPI. Furthermore, the P3 wide color gamut is supported on this display and you can clearly see that the image quality is outstanding when looking at the screen in person. Brightness is specified as 500 cd/m2, which is also pretty impressive and the panel technology is IPS, resulting in a great image quality and overall viewing angles.
On the back of this amazing monitor you’ll find three USB-C ports (480 Mbps). You will get all your data, video and power over one single USB-cable, as high as 4K UHD resolution, which is amazing. This cable is also included in the box as well. The LG UltraFine 4K Display also features stereo speakers and 60W of power that you can use to charge your devices for instance.
We hoped you liked our short LG UltraFine 4K Display review and that you agree with us when we say that this is the best monitor for MacBook Pro users and MacBook users with the USB-C port as well for that matter. The LG UltraFine 4K Display can already be ordered now on Apple’s website and the 5K variant, the LG UltraFine 5K Display is expected to be released in December with a price tag of $974 (25% discount until Dec 31, 2016).
