The Studio Display and LG UltraFine 5K Display occupy similar places in the market, but Apple’s monitor costs $300 more. We’ve got both monitors in our studio to help you decide which is best for you.
Six years is a long time in the technology universe, and that’s how long it has been since Apple sold a branded display that didn’t cost $5,000. In the interim, Apple partnered with LG to sell the LG UltraFine lineup that catered specifically to Mac users. In 2019 Apple stopped selling those LG monitors in favor of the Pro Display XDR, leaving a noticeable hole in the market for affordable Mac-friendly displays.
