Apple Stops Selling 27-Inch LG UltraFine 5K Display
Apple has removed the 27-inch LG UltraFine 5K display that was previously a Mac user's go-to option for external monitors from its online store following the launch of the Studio Display.
LG and Apple had worked on the display together, promising tight integration with macOS. The UltraFine 5K display featured a 5K display, P3 wide color with 500 nits of brightness, and one Thunderbolt 3 port capable of charging a Mac.
Following the announcement of the Studio Display this week, Apple has removed the UltraFine 5K display from its online store, now only listing the 23.7-inch UltraFine 4K display starting at $699. LG's own website also lists the UltraFine 5K display as sold out, and it's not entirely clear if the display will be restocked anytime soon.
The UltraFine 5K display retailed for $1,299, compared to the $1,599 starting price of Apple's Studio Display. The Studio Display was made available for pre-order this week and will be available on March 18. Learn more about Apple's newest display with our roundup.

For a plastic monitor the build quality is excellent. The stand is height and tilt adjustable with a solid metal base. The stand is removable and can be replaced with the included metal vesa mount. The stand and vesa mount are quite heavy.
This is just to sell more overpriced Studio Displays, obviously, not because the Ultra Fine is outdated or anything.
Classic Apple. Shame I’m not a shareholder though.
(Remember the rumours about LG making new 24,27 and 32 inch screens for Apple?)
I don't have a case for a large 5K screen, a 4K cheaper version would be amazing..
* 600 nits of brightness (vs. 500 nits)
* Aluminum design (vs. cheap looking black plastic)
* Six speaker system (vs. two)
* [S]True Tone capable (vs. not)[/S]
* USB-C ports are 3.1 Gen 2 (vs. 3.0)
* 12MP ultra-wide camera with Center Stage (vs. 1080p)
* Three microphone array (vs. one)
It's a really compelling product, although I do wish that it had ProMotion or mini-LED backlighting.
