LG UltraFine 5K Display is the latest monitor in the market, which is capable of charging MacBook Pro laptops. LG has redesigned its UltraFine 5K Display in order to fix the issue that was causing the display to flicker, black out, and even freeze the connected computer when a Wi-Fi router is kept too close to it.
The company said, “LG apologies for this inconvenience and is committed to delivering the best quality products possible so all LG UltraFine 27-inch 5K displays manufactured after February 2017 will be fitted with enhanced shielding.”
LG UltraFine 5K has 27-inch display, and comes with a screen resolution of 2880×5120 pixels, sports an IPS panel. LG UltraFine 5K Display can be effectively unusable if placed near a Wi-Fi router with some kind of radio interference causing the monitor to regularly black out and hang the connected MacBook Pro.
LG UltraFine 5K Display comes with one Thunderbolt 3 port and three regular USB Type-C ports. The Thunderbolt 3 cable, which comes with the display, is capable of not just displaying the content from MacBook Pro to the screen, but also charging the laptop simultaneously with 85W of charging power.
The display comes with inbuilt stereo speakers, camera, and microphone to provide extra utility options to the user. UltraFine 5K Display is currently being sold at a 25% discount on Apple’s website, as part of the company’s USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 sale to help Mac users transition to the new standards.
