I hate my LG Ultrafine 5k and this app
I foolishly shelled out several thousand dollars for a new LG Ultrafine 5k back in 2017 when I started my new job. At first, it seemed great. 5k! But then I started noticing the problems. My Mac would kernel panic when being plugged in or disconnected. Putting the Mac too close to the display would prevent wifi from working. USB devices plugged into it mysteriously stop working.
I thought the app might help. The app appears to do absolutely nothing. One of the buttons "helpfully" opens the Displays control panel for you.
I am now on an M1 Air and I still have all the same problems with the display I had with my previous Intel MacBook Pro. Plus another one: the webcam video is bizarrely laggy. Which is a huge shame because the quality of the webcam was quite good. So now I have a Logitech strapped to the display, covering up the old camera. In any case, it's clear that the issue is the display or the software or both.
I am also angry at Apple. I bought this display directly from the Apple Store, as at the time, it was the one and only display they offered. It was the one time where I thought I had enough money to buy into the "just works" cult. Well, it just doesn't work.
Continues to be a massive disappointment
This is supposed to be a top of the line product right? Amazing that this passed muster back in 17 with the apple QC people but alas, shelled out the bucks for a major disappointement. Having had issues with my 27" monitor that has only gotten worse since getting my m1 mac mini, I was so happy to see that they finally updated, alas, still doesn't work. After an hour of trying every little thing to get the software to download, i came here and realized OF COURSE I'M NOT ALONE. This thing has been a joke for a long time. Apple should give us reparations or at least get one of their software people over to Korea to help them fix this terrible AND ugly piece of software. GET IT TOGETHER!
I was an early buyer of the LG UltraFine 5K, and I'm amazed at how little LG has done since the release. I guess we now know why Apple is back to making their old displays.
First, LG has gutted this app. It used to have a feature to divy up windows across your screen. It wasn't perfect, but it could save time in certain situations. Well, that's gone now.
Numerous features that were originally advertised never came to fruition. The ambient light sensor was never turned on, for instance.
Finally, this app just doesn't DO anything. No customization, no color control, no sound control. Nothing. I don't know why it exists. You can't even turn the sound up above 3 notches, or else it will blow you you.
Pass on this app. Better yet, just pass on LG. I just returned another monitor from them (the 49" 5K) because it didn't work. Period. Never worked. It took 10 hours of support calls between Apple and LG before an LG tech finally admitted that it was a known fault, and they intended to patch it "hopefully within a month." That sucker got packed up and shipped back.
Don't count on LG to support their products.
