What customers say about "Key Specs"
LG Electronics 27UD88-W 4K UHD IPS
  • I have no problems with small text size although I prefer to either zoom text larger or just use Win10 scaling.
  • This monitor is simply amazing. It is so sharp. I am able to reduce the size of my fonts significantly such that I can get far more information on the screen and have no issue reading in the smaller size because the screen is so sharp.
  • I had a good experience with Dayssale. The monitor print size was too small so I returned it and they were very gracious about it.
  • Picture is clear, resolution good and I love being able to unhook my Macbook and travel and all of the information is at my fingertips.
  • The main problem with this monitor is its resolution. 4K on a 27" screen size is a very unfriendly resolution for Mac users.
Dell UltraSharp P2715Q
  • Runs full resolution @60Hz even on a Late 2013 MacBook Pro (using both Mini DisplayPorts). The screen quality on the Dell P2715Q is a perfect match for the MacBook Pro Retina Display!
  • Great size and resolution. I use this at home. Though I use two 24 normal-resolution monitors 8 hours a day at work, I don't feel like I'm missing any screen real estate when using one of these.
  • I was so used to my retina resolution that I decided to get a 4K monitor. After days of research and comparisons with several 4k monitors, the Dell P2715Q was the winner! I'm very happy with resolution and with the quality of the monitor.
  • Finally I discovery why everybody loves this monitor. The screen colors are very natural, the rotation and the ability to move in which angle that you want it is incredible and also the 4K resolution got me.
  • The color is great, and it's wonderful to see photos in this resolution, but overall this monitor is a real disappointment.

What customers say about "Display"
LG Electronics 27UD88-W 4K UHD IPS
  • It's matte screen is easier on my eyes and better for glare
  • Beautiful 4k display. Deep blacks, great color saturation, low latency.
  • The monitor is a beautiful replacement for my 30" Apple Cinema, no problems with the display.
  • Can't think of any cons. It's a 4k monitor with a nice display quality. It charges my notebook while I work. I'm happy.
Dell UltraSharp P2715Q
  • The picture quality is excellent, color depth is awesome, contrast/gamma is great.
  • Love it! Colors and viewing angles are simply outstanding, right out of the box. Also works beautifully with a 2015 MacBook Pro with full 4K at 60Hz!
  • Amazingly crystal clear picture. Large screen. No glare. We like this so much for than our Mac display purchase.
  • The colors are so beautiful; the clarity and sharpness are awesome. It is a true computer monitor from Dell, so it has all the physical adjustments (up/down, tilt, rotation) that you'd want.
  • The color is fully adjustable so eye strain is not even an issue anymore. I have used them for color correction as well and everything has been very accurate.
  • There is a perceivable curvature distortion when moving windows around. This 4K monitor is okay for displaying additional windows. Would recommend the use of this as a secondary monitor only.

What customers say about "Features"
LG Electronics 27UD88-W 4K UHD IPS
  • The stand has some minor scratches on it but it does not effect the usablilty
  • This monitor really stands out with its color accuracy and connections.
  • It very modern and sleek with very narrow dead edges and nice stand
  • Stand is sturdy and adjustable in all directions. Comes in and out of standby mode quickly too.
  • When I raise it to the monitor on its stand, it sinks back down. this may be a bigger deal to others than it is to me.
Dell UltraSharp P2715Q
  • I love adjustable stand for my desk, it gets me excited to sit down and work.
  • Resolution is high, and the stand is tall enough for what I need. Adjustable in every direction. Love it!
  • Great stand that allows pan, tilt, lower, rise, rotate...... excellent build quality
  • Easy to install, easy to color calibration with external device, the menu is really easy to use.
  • There is no audio or camera, you need to add those accessories.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
LG Electronics 27UD88-W 4K UHD IPS
  • It has USB ports on the back for legacy devices (as well as others). No need to buy a dongle.
  • The connection via a USB-C cable is good. Power supply is low but adequate for using and charging at the same time (macbook 13 inch).
  • It comes with a USB-C to monitor cable to connect your new iMac to the display, but the cable that comes with it is NOT the best quality and doesn't always connect properly.
  • The monitor is great. I purchased it because I wanted a USB-C connection and needed an HDMI connection.
  • Doesn’t reliably charge thru USB-C. It’s just ridiculous that it runs out of battery while connected.
Dell UltraSharp P2715Q
  • It has all the connection slots. HDMI delivers 4K@30frames/sec and the rest 4K@60frames/sec. You cannot go wrong with Dell build quality.
  • I mounted a Dell soundbar to the slots in the bottom of it. Nice. It has a bunch of useful USB and DisplayPort connections.
  • I already have another USB hub I use, so I'm not using it through the monitor. If there were a USB port on the side rather than the back, this might be more useful for me.
  • The install was easy and efficient, except that the cable that came with it was not what I needed. The supplied cable was Display Port to Mini Display Port and I needed Display Port to Display Port with my computer.
  • Hard to get to USB input, on back of monitor.
