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 UltraFine 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.

Does the LG have a height adjustable stand and/or integrated VESA coupling? If I’m not mistaken the two monitors share the same LCD panel but perhaps with different backlighting? Apple unit doubtless has a premium finish though.

Not hard to see why they don’t want these two items occupying the same shelf space and competing for buyers’ affections. Typical Apple but not unexpected.
The picture quality is incredible. It's better than any Apple screen I've ever owned aside from my XDR MPB and OLED iPhone 13 Pro. Perhaps I got lucky with my panel, but I've never had any issues.

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.

Main objective: Maximize the sales of the Mac Studio Display. Therefore, Apple wants you to spend your money on its own newly Mac Studio Display.

Maybe they will discontinue the 4K and release 24" version of Studio Display once Mini is updated? Like.. Studio Mini :D
(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..
I hope so, too - a cheaper 24" consumer display, a moderately more expensive 27" mini-LED Studio Display XDR, and a 32" Pro Display XDR. That would be quite the impressive monitor lineup.

Why compete if you are the competition.
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.

Here are some of the ways the Studio Display is superior to the UltraFine 5K

* 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.
