Performance has been stellar. The screen is outstanding. Speakers are great, especially for a laptop. I have my laptop connected to LG's 5K UltraFine Display via a single Thunderbolt 3 port which not only handles all audio and video (including HD camera) via the single cable, it the monitor also charges the laptop all through the single cable. It's pretty impressive. I would've much rather preferred an Apple-made display, but you take what you can get.
