LG UltraFine 5K Display isn't exactly MacBook Pro ready

Posted February 01, 2017

Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like LG is treating this as something that needs to be fixed on this display going forward - so it's definitely something to be aware of before dropping large amounts of cash on it. LG says that only the 5K display is affected, so if you're OK with a smaller screen, the 21.5-inch 4K display might be worth looking at. The company claimed the monitor was especially made for connecting the new MacBook Pro laptops to a bigger display. Users have discovered that this display can become unusable if placed within a two meter distance of a wireless router. It was later found out that the monitor was suffering from this because it was in close proximity of a router. It seems the monitor isn't working properly if there is a wifi router, access-point or other wireless units nearby, roughly in a 2 meter range.

Apple doesn't offer its own high-end, high-resolution desktop monitor anymore. Hall was asked to place the router "at least 2 metres away" from the monitor, and "to let us know" if the problem still persists after that. Furthermore, the customer care executive also clarified that this issue was only restricted to LG's 5K monitors, and not any other displays in its portfolio. However, reports of issues when the monitor is kept near a router are now cropping up, with LG UltraFine 5K Display supposedly flickering, blacking out, and even freezing the connected computer when a Wi-Fi router is placed too close to it. Without ample proliferation of 5K Displays on the market, it's hard to test whether this is an overarching problem tied to all 5K displays, or just LG's hardware mishap.

Support responded by recommending I use the monitor away from a router as they can cause performance issues with this monitor. Without more 5K monitors on the market to test, it's unclear if this limitation will be hardware specific or an issue in all external 5K displays coming soon.
