LG 27UL850-W Reviews

Best purchase of 2021 going into 2022

By Jennifer
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-03

I bought two of these monitors in December 2021 to replace my old dell monitors and to complement my new Mac Mini (M1 Chip). I've always only bought photography gear from B&H but after this purchase, I will be going to them for a lot more gear. The monitors are awesome and the delivery was quick and no damage to the box or item. Also between Best Buy, Amazon, and Walmart, B&H provided the fastest delivery option and at a cheaper price. My overall experience was 5 out of 5 stars. Definitely recommend that screens and B&H. Happy New Year!

Fantastic MacBook monitor

Looked around for a while to find a well-reviewed MacBook monitor that could charge while plugged in, and this one has been great! I only have two gripes: 1) the built-in speaker volume works like a TV and isn't controllable by the OS and 2) I wish the ports were in a less conspicuous spot The color, brightness, and quality of the monitor are incredible, and I use it like four monitors because the resolution gives me enough workspace to.

Good quality monitor for WFH

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve had this monitor for a month now and it’s really working well. As a graphic designer working from home accustomed to accurate color monitors, this one is very good. I was surprised, however, that the color adjustment function (for fine tuning) was grayed out for me, and maybe just haven’t yet figured out the selection that unlocks it, but in any case, the color seems pretty good with the broader menu selections I’ve made. The original USB-C cable it came with gave me power but no video, however, contacted customer support and they sent another one out right away that worked correctly.

I cannot get over the clarity and color of this screen! I bought this to replace a suuuuuper old and grainy Dell monitor I was using for my WFH setup. I have a MacBook Pro and I do a lot of graphic design and video editing, so I needed a better monitor for color correcting and just generally being able to SEE what I'm doing. My research led me to this monitor, and maui wowie I'm so satisfied! I feel like I'm looking into its soul when I look at the little app icons at the bottom dash. Wow. So beautiful and bright and crisp. Highly recommend. A few things to note: when you are calibrating the monitor, be sure HDR is turned OFF otherwise the colors will seem a tad bit off and feel like they're searing your corneas. Also, if your mouse appears to be lagging on the monitor, you may need a different cable to connect it to your dock or laptop. I had to order a DisplayPort to MiniDisplayPort in order to get the monitor to be at 60Hz refresh rate. I could only get 30Hz refresh with the cables that came in the box. Enjoy!

Quality monitor for design work

By MegTrees
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-16

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As a content creator that does a lot of detailed design work, I purchased this monitor to use with my company laptop (macbook pro). I couldn't be happier with the screen resolution and color accuracy, which are essential to my work. If you need a bigger screen than a laptop but can't swing an iMac, I highly recommend this setup and as the world moves more toward hybrid and remote work this is a great option that allows more freedom than the standard desktop setup of old.

Lives up to its reputation

By Jackson
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-30

My largest and priciest monitor to date, and I have no regrets. The resolution is stunning, which is most helpful for the video editing I have begun. The default settings were too bright, but I quickly found the setting for Reading, which is right for most of my work. I've already given my previous monitor away.

Does this pair well with a MacBook Pro 16in 2020? Does that differ from powering the laptop?
Asked by: Sunah
Yes it works well but not enough power through USB-C to charge the MacBook on the single connection. You would need to either keep the MacBook plugged into its own charger or do what we did — Use a 3rd-party USB-C dock with sufficient wattage for power delivery (your MacBook charger and all your peripheral including wired network plug in to the dock and the MacBook connects with just a single USB-C cable)
