LG UltraFine 5K Thunderbolt 3 display ship times drop to one week, in-store pickup on Jan....

in Current Mac Hardware
Shipping times for the LG UltraFine 5K Display have dropped precipitously in the U.S., with outstanding orders being updated, and new order shipping estimates falling from 2-4 weeks, to just one week.

Nearly from launch, the LG UltraFine 5K Display has been listed as shipping 2-4 weeks after order, with only a brief period of immediate availability. Some Apple Retail stores have received sale stock, but have blown through it nearly immediately.

Most Apple stores are reporting in-store pickup as an option, starting Jan. 23.

An AppleInsider reader informed us that before he was updated by Apple on Wednesday morning of the imminent shipment, the order he placed on Jan. 9 was slated to ship in approximately 4 weeks.

The LG UltraFine 5K Display is 27 inches diagonal, and crams in 5K ultra-high resolution, with data provided by a single Thunderbolt 3 cable. The display boasts the full DCI-P3 color space, and has three USB 3.0 type C connectors on the back for peripherals and input devices.

The display retails for $1299.95, but is discounted through Apple's Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C sale through March 31.

    What an ugly design. Defenestration would be too kind.

    I ordered 30 minutes after they were "blogged" to have gone on sale (on Dec 20) and they arrived in California this AM. After ordering, I saw the gear-porn produced about it by the blog sites, tons of predictable complaints from a combination of those still in hawk and falling behind with their current Mac and those looking mainly for trophies, then I took a look at the unit in the CES 2017 LG exhibit. At the end of the day, it's a great panel at 60Hz with 5120x2880 and P3 color on 27 inches. I justified the /s/ "whopping" $400 /s/ above comparable 27.5" 4K monitors because I don't have time to screw around checking out which of the available TB3 dongles can clock over [email protected] (without literally burning out). I'm not switching to Microsoft or Google hardware in this lifetime, so This.

    They're able to display 8K video (4320p in Display panel of System Preferences) when plugged into a '13-MacPro!
