This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

True Colors and Wider View

LG IPS display has extraordinary color accuracy, covering 99% of the sRGB color spectrum. It also has a wider viewing angle, so it's even easier to enjoy true color visuals.

Higher Work Efficiency

Dual display and multi-ports can drastially enhance work efficiency.

Unified Interface for Easy Set-up

Display Connection uses USB Type-C and is compatible with MacBook. With a single cable, you can simultaneously transfer 4K screen data and other data while charge a MacBook or any mobile device up to 40W.

Easier User Interface

OnScreen Control is simple and intuitive. You can customize your display options, even pivot control, with a few simple clicks.


Here is the official LG page for more specifics lg.com/uk/…670

Saw this particular product and thought a LG 27" 4K display with a USB-C for delivering video feed and power to charge a Macbook according to the spec sheet, so potentially other laptops with a USB-C that can transmit video and power then for someone with such a product may find this display useful.

Next best price is from Ebuyer but they cost for delivery which makes it £303.46 and Overclockers for £459.95 or it's out of stock in most places, I believe this may be an older product but for the price it isn't terrible.


Cannot find any reputable reviews online so, if anyone finds any please feel to share.

Interesting. I picked up a 27UD59P from Laptops Direct and it was £199. I wonder how this compares.
The LG 27UD59P is no longer listed on their site. The cheapest 4K monitor on the Laptops Direct store is the, presumably prior model, 24UD58 which is 24" rather than 27".
I went 4K at 27" and in my opinion it was a mistake. I have a Dell UltraSharp QHD (1440p) at the office and much prefer it. I have to scale 4K down to an unnatural (1:1.5) ratio (i.e. QHD), otherwise everything is too small, or even worse you end up running at 1080p scaled! Just my opinion, but have a good think before making this choice. Obviously, if it's mostly for gaming/video, then you can benefit from the full 4K.

Windows has HiDPI for this. It's very primitive compared to the Mac's Retina Mode though. How its works is you keep the very high resolution but the icons and text are drawn larger so the size is normal but the level of detail is double.

I have a Mac. Retina mode is normally 2x resolution though. What my Mac is currently doing is upscaling to 5K and then downscaling to 1440p to achieve the 1.5x. This doesn't seem ideal and OSX even warns about degraded performance. To get true retina, the screen should be 5K. If I just run OSX at 4K it is unusable.

Scaled is fine if your GPU is powerful enough. The 15" MacBook Pros ship default to scaled nowadays.

It is annoying 27" 5K never became a thing.

It is fine - don't get me wrong. I have a 2018 13" MacBook Pro. I'm just not sure if it's better or worse than a 1440p screen. From my experience, there is noticeable lag when moving windows (etc) using scaling (1440p on 4K) but no problems on a 1440p screen (or 1080p on 4K). Can't say how 1440p on 5K feels as not had that luxury

Windows is a lot more advanced than the Mac's retina mode. It does proper fractional scaling and have many options to control individual apps if they are old and don't support high DPI properly.

This is basically the same monitor as the ones you can buy for £50 less but with a USB-C port. Because it's limited to just 40W it's not even very good for charging your MacBook.
