Apple introduced the LG UltraFine 5K display last year with its new MacBook Pro. The company decided to team up with LG for new displays because it’s not going to come out with a new Thunderbolt display. Apple is selling the displays directly through its online store and a new report suggests that the company may be removing bad reviews for the LG UltraFine 5K display.
The product page for the UltraFine 5K display doesn’t have a star rating. A post on Reddit mentions that Apple removed the rating entirely after a “storm of negative reviews” about the monitor’s inability to wake from sleep.
If you head over to the product page right now you’ll notice that it doesn’t have a “Ratings & Reviews” section so there’s not a single user review for this product which costs just a hair under $1,000.
On the other hand, if you go to the page for LG’s smaller UltraFine 4K monitor you’ll see that it has a visible star rating even though it’s at 2.5 and most reviewers again point out problems in trying to wake up the monitor from sleep when it’s connected to a MacBook Pro. Some reviewers are even using this product’s rating section to complain about the 5K display.
It’s not entirely clear at this point in time if this is due to a glitch or if Apple really has removed the “Ratings & Reviews” section for the 5K display due to an abundance of negative reviews. The company is yet to comment on this matter.
