Perhaps you’ve been holding out on upgrading to a 4K monitor because prices have been too high. Or your Mac wasn’t powerful enough to support the higher resolution. This isn’t 2014 anymore and those excuses are out the window. The reality is, it’s the best way to work on your Mac. Even the latest 12-inch MacBook is capable. So here’s the deal to jump on…

Best Buy’s eBay Store has the LG 27-inch 4K Ultra HD FreeSync Monitor (model 27UD68) for $399.99 shipped. Also available direct. It usually sells for $500 at Amazon and has only been priced $2 lower once. This IPS monitor will pump out 4K resolutions at 60Hz with 99% coverage of the sRGB spectrum. It has Split Screen 2.0 control that automatically divides up your monitor into designated areas (learn more in Jeff’s recent review of another LG 4K display). Inputs include D-Sub, DisplayPort and HDMI. Rated 4.6/5 stars by 48 Best Buy customers.

Mac users will want to grab an extra Thunderbolt to DisplayPort or HDMI cable.

The clarity and details with 4K Ultra HD resolution will amaze, even up close. With over 99% coverage of the sRGB spectrum this LG monitor is a great solution for professional photographers, graphic designers or anyone looking for highly accurate color.¹ On-Screen Control puts a host of essential monitor settings into a handy window for quick, easy access. Volume, brightness, picture mode presets, Screen Split 2.0 and Dual Controller and more can now be adjusted with just a few clicks of the mouse, instead of hard buttons on the monitor. Customize your monitor layout for multitasking with the latest version of LG Screen Split. Resize and display multiple windows at once, with 14 options including four different picture-in-picture (PIP) choices.
