LG UltraFine 4K For Apple Screen with macOS Compatibility
These days, there are so many monitors that are packed with huge 4K screens, incredibly thin dials, and HDR, that when a screen scrolls around it just offers excellent resolution and picture quality, it’s kind of a breath of fresh air. And, basically, it’s the LG UltraFine 24MD4KL-B 4K.
This USB-C monitor is practically designed for Apple Macbooks and Ultrabooks, with its buttonless design and relatively lightweight construction. With a single Thunderbolt 3 cable, you’ll be able to charge your laptop while still having an amazing display – and a surprisingly long Thunderbolt 3 cable is included right out of the box. However, this is an expensive monitor, especially considering the screen size and thick panels. The fantastic image quality more than makes up for it, but it’s still hard to recommend it to ordinary users.

At its deepest point, the LG UltraFine 24MD4KL 4K screen is just 1.9 inches thick, and the stand is black and blends seamlessly with the background. It helps that the only ports offered here are USB-C on the back: two Thunderbolt 3 and three standard USB-C serving as a bridge. And, speaking of the stand, it’s flat at the bottom, so you can hide it pretty effectively. It will also allow you to raise and lower the monitor, as well as tilt it vertically.
However, you can’t tilt the screen horizontally or rotate it. For a monitor so clearly designed to meet the needs of professionals, it’s a shame that it doesn’t allow you to fully control its orientation. Don’t look for buttons on this monitor, they aren’t there. This monitor will turn on or off whether it detects a signal or not. This is a good idea, in theory, but it begs the question of why the glasses are so thick when there are no buttons. It also means that if you want to change the display settings, you are at the mercy of software, instead of being able to manually manipulate the image. For most people, this probably won’t matter, but more experienced users may get annoyed.
It’s hard to determine whether or not we’re fans of the LG UltraFine 24MD4KL’s design. On the one hand, the simple buttonless design is a boon to ease of use, and we really appreciate a more spartan approach to hardware design. However, the thickness of the bezel and the fact that we can’t rotate the display without moving the whole stand is quite a pain.
This monitor offers fantastic 4k image quality and is not close to being debated. This 24-inch, 3,840 x 2,160 screen is very pixel-dense – offering a resolution of 183 pixels per inch (PPI), as opposed to the 163 PPI offered by 27-inch monitors with the same resolution. This gives a 10% increase in pixel density and is certainly enough to notice if you’re a creative who looks at 4k high-resolution images all day.
This screen also emits 500 nits of brightness and when combined with the P3 extended color gamut, you get an incredibly bright and colorful display. It all looks absolutely gorgeous, While watching 4K content on this screen, we simply can’t look away, even without the sound.
Photoshop is also an incredible experience on this monitor. The high resolution and accurate color make it very easy to make the necessary changes.
