There has been a lot of debate about Apple’s move away from their Thunderbolt display (of which I am an owner – see my post here).
When the new MacBook Pro was released in late 2016 and with all or nothing Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, there was even more chatter about how to utilize a second screen that could do justice to the Retina screen on the laptop.
Apple announced at launch time, a partnership with LG and the release of the UltraFine 5K Display.
Appleinsider have reviewed the product for those in the market and their headline comments suggest this display as a serious contender.
The LG UltraFine 5K Display is 27 inches diagonal, and crams in 5K ultra-high resolution, with data provided by a single Thunderbolt 3 cable making setup easier than its ever been —even with relatively ancient gear supporting the old ADC connector.
Setting aside the case plastics, which we’ll discuss later, the display itself is gorgeous. It implements Apple’s Wide Color standards, bringing the entirety of the DCI-P3 color space to the desktop.
