LG has redesigned its 5K Mac monitor so it can handle being placed near a router – Recode

LG has found a fix for a problem that left its high-end Mac monitor unable to work properly when placed within a few feet of a router.

Seriously? Who the hell makes a computer display and doesn’t test it with a router nearby? I have an LG TV, and I like it a lot, but there’s no way I’ll ever buy one of their displays.

An LG spokesman told Recode that the company is adding additional shielding to newly manufactured models.

Existing models will be able to be retrofitted with the enhanced shielding, which will allow the monitor to be placed near a router.

WTF?

A bunch of rubes.

  1. Do their monitors work next to microwave ovens? (One of the first product lines widely sold by LG in the USA was lousy, low-cost microwave ovens. Who remembers Goldstar, the ‘G’ in ‘LG’?)
