Apple Pulls LG UltraFine 5K Display Reviews

By Josh Centers
http://tidbits.com/article/17011

Reddit user michael_emery points out that Apple has removed all user reviews for the LG UltraFine 5K Display from its Apple Store page after a barrage of negative reviews. User-reported problems include failure to wake from sleep, Macs crashing when reconnecting the monitor, Macs becoming unresponsive, and various Touch Bar issues while the display is connected. Until more is known and solutions appear, we recommend delaying purchases of the LG UltraFine 5K Display. And, frankly, this is bush-league behavior on Apple’s part. If these problems are real, the reviews should stay, or Apple should stop selling the monitor. If the problems are coincidental, Apple should provide a public statement and support for those who have purchased the nearly $1000 screen.

If these claims are valid, I hope Apple pulls the displays from its online and physical stores as well. I expect better QC from any third party products Apple sells, especially since they stopped development of Apple branded displays and worked with LG to develop this product.

Article is incorrect. There we no reviews to pull. Apple only very recently allowed for reviews to be posted. Reddit has apologized for publishing fake news.
