    LG 27MD5KA-B Reviews

    Two questions to other pro photographers. 1. Why ...

    Two questions to other pro photographers. 1. Why should I spend this much for a 27" LG 5k monitor when I can get an LG 4k monitor for half the price? 2. What is the difference between this model and the LG 27MD5KB-B 27" UltraFine 16:9 5K IPS Monitor. I will be using with macbook pro 2018. Thanks.... Sam
