LG UltraFine 5K/4K Displays intend to deliver the ultimate Mac user experience

lg-ultrafine-monitorsThe MacBook Pro is one line of laptops from Apple that has a pretty long history, and it does not look as though Cupertino is about to phase them out right now. Well, apart from that, there is also the “lesser” MacBook models from Apple that cater for a decent mobile computing experience, but if your line of work requires you to look at a whole lot of information, having additional viewing real estate space would be beneficial — and this is where an external monitor comes in handy. LG knows this too, which is why the South Korean company has come up with a couple of new displays which have been specially designed to integrate seamlessly with the newest MacBook and MacBook Pro models. These new models are the LG UltraFineTM 27-inch 5K and LG UltraFine 21.5-inch 4K monitors, being perfect for creating an expanded work space in the home or office.

The 27-Inch LG UltraFine 5K Monitor will arrive with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, where it ought to appeal to a wide range of creatives — and these include video and photography professionals. Sporting a breathtaking resolution of 5120 x 2880 and 218 pixels per inch (ppi), the LG UltraFine 5K display’s color reproduction capability enables it to cover 99% of the P3 color space, and thanks to its advanced IPS display technology, it minimizes color shift and color loss from any viewing angle.

As for the 21.5-Inch LG UltraFine 4K Monitor, it comes with a density of 219 ppi that gives this display the ability to present sharp 4K resolution (4096 x 2304) image quality. It will boast of USB Type-C connectivity that caters for video, data and power over a single cable and macOS integration for display control, accompanied by a trio of downstream USB Type-C slots, a high-quality Rich Bass Speaker and an adjustable stand for enhanced ergonomics.

The 27-inch LG UltraFine 5K model will arrive in early December this year, while the 21.5-inch LG UltraFine 4K model will hit the market from next month onwards. This means you can gift someone either one for Christmas this year, which would certainly make for a pleasant surprise!
