it is just has better pixel rate than most 4k’s, for a sharp crispier and crunchier image. It is good for who works on a text, small fine print etc… LGs another marketing skill. Still is a good option or upgrade for a small screen macbook user tho.
Funny, consensus seem to be there’s not much point of 4k for a 22" (which I agree with) but a few days ago everyone seemed gung-ho about spending $600 for a 27" 5k, claiming it would be a noticeable difference over 4k. Being the owner of the very 28" 4k mentioned above, I had to disagree.
Can’t say for sure it wouldn’t be at all noticeable, not owning a 5k. But can say it wouldn’t be noticeable enough for me to spend almost 3 times as much.
Never done research on that issue but you may consider a “combo approach” such as a USB-C to USB 3 adapter & a USB 3 to Display Port cable? Or something like that/vice versa/an adapter + a conversion cable combo? USB-C to HDMI + HDMI to Display Port?
Someone spending $600 for a 5K monitor has money to throw around on cool toys with limited practical value. At that price point and level of “early adoption”, you’re looking at an entirely different audience.
(A 22" 4k monitor isn’t even a cool toy - it’s just of limited practical value.)
All the clueless people bashing this monitor for being too small, I bought it from woot 2 weeks ago and after using 3 other 27" 4K monitors (LG, Lenovo and BenQ), the color on this thing blows everything away. There is no comparison. Not to mention you can daisy chain USB-C devices.
The only problem with this monitor I see is, it needs a Thunderbolt USB-C output on your computer. Or you would need to buy this. Only this bi-directional cable would work. I haven’t tried this cable but they say it would work.
No, because such a product does not exist. USB and DP are completely different technologies and you cannot “convert” between them.
USB 3.1 introduced, among other things, the Type-C connector and Alt Modes, which let you run other protocols over the physical USB-C medium. These Alt Modes include DP (and TB3, and HDMI) which is how this monitor works; it’s simply a DP connection over a Type-C cable, the latter being required and you can’t simply use any DP to drive this monitor.
Existing USB-C-to-DP cables are one-way; they simply take the DP signal that is otherwise routed out of the Type-C port. The only option for systems not natively equipped with DP-over-USB-C would be an expansion card like this, which adds Type-C ports and allows you to route a DP connection in and encapsulates it over one of the USB-C ports.
