    For starters, I'm not a heavy user and I will most likely never reap the full benefits of a great display but I do appreciate quality and I can't stand looking at blurry displays. I've searched for displays before and have tested out a couple in the past but none that I actually loved.

    I've been looking at the somewhat new displays that Apple has introduced, the lg ultrafine displays, specifically the 4K version. It's obviously overkill for what I need it for and my mbp won't be able to drive it at full res but I like that it's an Apple-designed product and the charge-through feature does tempt me

    Are there any other displays I should be looking at besides the lg ultrafine?

    I believe the 4k Ultrafine is not compatible with any of the pre-2016 MBP's (but don't quote me on that). The 5k model is though weirdly enough (though you won't be able to run it at full 5k resolution obviously).
