Default on Mac

If you plug the LG 27UD88, one of our favorite monitors, into your MacBook Pro, you're likely going to see the monitor at 1920x1080 Retina display running at 60 Hz as a default. More than likely, because of the size of the monitor, this resolution may have much larger icons than you'd prefer.

You can set the resolution higher with the scaled options of 2560x1440, 3008x1692, 3360x1890, and the full 3840x2160. Of course, there are also some lower options available between 1680x945 and 1152x648.

Seemless color display

Don't forget you can calibrate the colors with your MacBook so that you glance back and forth between each screen and have it be seamless and pleasing to the eye. You also have 14 options for layout, so you can view multiple windows simultaneously — run your Apple TV via HDMI while using your MacBook! This is a feature that helps make the LG 27UD88 one of the best USB-C monitors that we've reviewed.
