Close

For a limited period of time, LG's UltraFine 5K display 27-inch model now sells for $975 from its original price $1,300. The 4K model with 21.5-inch screen is also being offered at a special price of $524, receiving price cuts from its original pricing, $700. This special promo will end on March 31 next year.

LG's UltraFine 4K display packs high resolution of 4096 x 2304 whilst the UltraFine 5K display has 5120x2880 resolution. Both wide monitors rock P3 color gamut and 500 cd/m² of brightness. This is a great bargain especially for monitor seekers who aim at impressive viewing experience.

The 5K screen can be connected to MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 - the multitasking cable that's also capable of charging, linking video and sharing data.

Users who want to opt for LG UltraFine 5K display should check if their Macs are compatible with the monitor. Apple has listed some of the requirements below:

-          5120 x 2880 @ 60Hz

-          MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)

-          MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

-          MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

For older Macs, the 5K monitor can still be compatible but users might need to settle for low resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
