Unreliable and ugly AF. The monitor equivalent of the iTunes phone.
I usually read that Matt displays are better for photo editors - https://au.pcmag.com/monitors/3667/how-to-choose-the-right-monitor-for-photo-editing
The hold up is that in Microsoft's obsolete view of things, you don't need high-res for MS Office. And why would you - in a world where everyone is a cubicle office worker, or a dry corporate douche looking at Excel sheets 24/7.
Flat flippy tiles is as far as Microsoft's perception of aesthetics goes. Go figure.
As the most used OS world-wide, and only consumer OS alternative to MacOS, why bother make things better?

Dell U3014 / U3017.
16:10 aspect ratio is your friend for photography. Avoid wide screens!

I really hope the upcoming monitor(s) and Mac Pro signal a real turnaround in Apple's treatment of its 'high end' users. Irrespective of what you think of Tim Cook as a person or CEO, he's been the death knell for professional creatives outside of laptops. Maybe he's on kickbacks from Dell and HP on the sly...
False. The article never mentions anything of the sort like I did about the displays possibly shipping during WWDC or even later this summer.
I think 4k has caught on OK - it’s 5k that has foundered.
TLDNR: because of the way the OSs and Apps are designed, 4K is the sweet spot for Windows and 5k is the sweet spot (at a price) for MacOS.
1080p had become the de-facto standard for “low” def displays in Windows - it’s the same resolution as HD TV meaning cheap, mass market display panels - so the obvious next step up is 4K “UHD” at exactly twice the linear resolution so everything scales well.
Apple had pushed 1440p to their less price-sensitive customers in the form of the iMac and Cinema displays, so the best step-up to that is 5k, again, at exactly twice the resolution.
Thing is, although 5k is better, 4K is pretty darned good and, on Windows, it doesn’t need non-integer scaling to get a usable size on a 27” display. On Mac, everything is a bit too big in standard “retina mode” 4K, although the non-integer scaled modes are very effective.
My college has the LG 4K display here opposite me. Has been working well for about six months now and it easily has the best image I've seen on a monitor. In conjunction with True Tone (which works when the MacBook Pro display/lid is open) the colors look good an natural, albeit I bet they would be even better if a proper hardware calibration was done.
yeah, they also announced AirPower
Fingers crossed for iMac-like 4K/5K monitors with amazing build quality.
I don't see any reason to release just a super-expensive 6K monitor for the 1% of their customers.
Apple’s got a lot of experience with high quality, high resolution displays, I don’t think there’s much to worry about!
I have the 4K and 5K. It's the same panel as the iMacs and my 5K LG sits right next to my 5K iMac. I cannot tell the difference between the screens. They also have USB C hubs on the back.
These are fantastic displays. Is the design pretty? Not really, but the screens ARE and that's the important thing.
I don't understand all the hate for these monitors. If youkke the iMac screena, you'll like the LG'S
My question: will the new 6k show enough colors to make the recent game of thrones episode watchable?
Seriously though, I have been watching the Apple product monitor space for some time. I run the Dell P2715Q off a Blackmagic 580 and the 2018 MBA.
I tried an ultra wide curved display and returned it because the PPI was too low.
I’m very curious to see what Apple has planned and how well it will support existing machines Andy eGPUs.
Bring on the alleged 6k monster!!!
I reckon the LG 5K is gonna be available again, otherwise Apple would have removed the listing as well. They should have done this with the iPhone SE, givin' how many times it was on 'clearance sale'
Well technically their high res displays were LG or Phillips and just assembled by Apple in a bespoke shell... but they did assemble them very nicely indeed.
I would just like a 32 inch 5K display - that can be powered from a mac mini 2018
Apple already confirmed that they are working on a pro display alongside the Mac Pro, both are a 2019 thing according to Apple. Mark Gurman from Bloomberg has said that Apple is contemplating announcements for the Mac Pro at WWDC.
Nope not true in the least, technically or otherwise. There’s a big difference between an LCD panel and a monitor.
Also, Apple doesn’t actually do the assembly; that’s outsourced to contract manufacturers.
Can’t they just make computers like the good 'ol days?
Anyone aware of any other decent 27"+ 4k+ glossy monitors?
I hope iPhone sales crash and burn, leaving Apple with nowhere to go after ignoring their Mac lineup for years. Apple's put all of their fruit into two baskets: iPhone and services. I, for one, want neither.
Guess it's not ultra fine anymore.. it's just plain old
Both of these come up refurbished on Amazon and Woot often, very cheap. I got the 4k for 200 bucks as I await the coming Apple displays. It has a beautiful display in a not-so-premium frame. But at least it's flat black and basically unnoticeable in every day use.
