I use this screen to plug directly into my 2019 MacBook pro using USB-C. I don't have to plug in additional power when using the monitor. The screen looks identical in colour & quality to my mac, something I have never experienced with an external monitor before. The blacks are incredibly deep & the colours are vibrant.
I bought two of these monitors as an upgrade to a 10 year old Full HD monitor. I had three computers and I was sick of constantly flicking through the Display inputs to see anything. My work Laptop and new Mac Mini both use USB-C Display Ports in addition to HDMI, so I now have three computers using both Displays
Mac-Mini - Dual 4K via native USB-C Laptop PC - Dual 4K via USB-C to Displayport, and Displayport to Displayport Old Mac Mini (2010) - Dual Full HD via HDMI
So, now I can work on all three PC's at the same time with one display on for each, or I can do Dual Screen for each Mac as I need to, and for the PC I have Dual Screen plus the Laptop screen. The clarity on these monitors is extremely good. The text is so sharp it puts my old FullHD screen to shame. When you run FullHD on these screens, it actually doubles the pixels so it is still using the native resolution of the panel.
I ditched the included the stands as I run these side by side on one desk, and I found that the stands used up space on my desk that I could use more efficiently. So, I bought a dual-arm monitor stand that lets me angle the screens exactly how I want them.
Only thing to watch out for is you can't control the volume of the monitor from the computer (at least on the Mac), and with two Displays, the devices both show up as "LG HDR 4K", which makes it inconvenient figuring out which is which. I use external speakers anyway, or Airplay, so this is not a real big issue. The internal speakers in the monitor aren't all that great. They are better than the Laptop or Mac Mini internal speaker, but won't win any awards.
Seriously great 4K monitor for photographic and video work, as well as general use. Colour and contrast superb. Have not tried gaming, but I know it is not recommended for that. Inbuilt speaker rubbish but easily fixed with a $39 external pair or headphones. No inbuilt camera - not an issue for me. Good range of connections. I connect to a Mac Mini using USB C. Highly recommended for general, photo and video work.
I'd been looking for an external monitor for my MacBook Pro 2018 and saw these one sale so I purchased two on a whim. Shipping was incredibly fast. The monitors arrived safely and nothing was damaged/faulty. I'm glad I decided to treat myself and purchase two of these bad boys—it's improved my workflow so much! 🎉👍
