Although Apple could return to making their own home screens in the future, we do not know when it will occur, or what users will be directed. Although the panels of the MacBook Pro are excellent, we know that can’t match the grandeur and functionality of working in a desktop display of a large scale. To make things easier, we’ve picked out the best monitors for MacBook Pro.

This monitor is one of the best accessories of MacBook Pro, so it is not surprising that left with the first place. Although it can take a while to get used to its dimensions, with its 32-inch and a resolution of 4K, this screen gives you a huge space for productivity.

Also with the technology of BenQ to protect your eyes, reducing blue light and flicker, making it more comfortable to use for long periods of time.
If you think that the price of $700 is a bit high or the resolution seems excessive, there is also a version QHD (2,560 x 1,440) available, which is substantially cheaper and with the same specifications and features.
LG 27UD68-W 27″ 4K IPS
Although our tests did not showed it as the perfect monitor, the LG 27UD68-W is an affordable option for those looking for a pure style with a lot of substance. Its 4K resolution on the 27 ” means that you have pixel-dense, and their colors are rich, with a coverage of 99% of the RGB spectrum.
The monitor also includes AMD FreeSync and on-screen controls to divide it manually, or adjust the color. It offer preset modes, which include one game and a stabilizer black.

LG 27MD5KA‑B Ultrafine 5K
Despite the fact that it is the most expensive of the list, and is not exempt of disadvantages, we can not consider it as one of the best monitors for MacBook Pro. The LG 27MD5KA-B looks absolutely stunning when it is in operation and, in addition, is the only one made in conjunction with Apple for the MacBook Pro, which makes the most of your connection.
With a resolution amazing 5,120 x 2,880, this monitor makes even the 4K look inferior in terms of pixel density, especially because it is in a frame of 27 inches.
In our review, we loved how easy it was to connect this screen to the MacBook Pro. Once you do it, it not only works immediately, but you also start to charge your laptop. MacOS will detect it and will automatically configure the monitor as a second screen, and if you disconnect and re-connect later, all windows and the applications will return to where they were.
There are some problems with the accuracy of the color and the design is not as attractive as the other monitor from LG from this list. Great to use, although with some shortcomings and a high price.
Acer H277HU QHD 27″
Screens 4K to be more affordable today does not mean that you have to share one. The Acer H277HU is a panel of 27 inch that looks very good with its QHD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. With a response time of only 4 ms, it is surprisingly elegant for a IPS panel and its slim frame makes it a snap attractive for your home or office from any angle.
Although the price is cheap in comparison with other items of the list of best monitors for MacBook Pro, if you find it too expensive for what it offers or don’t need something so big, there is a variant of 25 inches at a most convenient price.
