    Well OSX handles hi-res monitors very well, there is a performance hit on some scalings, but you end up with crips text.

    Been using for over a year now AOC U2777PQU.


    • IPS /w 100% sRGB
    • vesa mount
    • rotatable
    • small bezels, good choice for multi monitor setups
    • Under 500eur


    • Monitor controls slow and awkward (but once set up, no need to touch them)
    • Slow to start on (minor nuance)
    • Design
    • BAD built-in speakers (if you even care about it, I don't, but just sayin')

    Hold your horses, changing the scaling of windows on OSX to make the UI bigger, as 4k UI is for ants. But it doesn't reduce the resolution, it does the opposite. OSX increases the resolution, It's a trick that makes bigger UI without compensating sharpness. If you take a screenshot on a 4k monitor with the relative scaling at middle, that ships with computers by default, the size of screenshot will be bigger then 4k, its called Resolution independence.

    Why run half resolution? OS X handles high-res monitors very nice, but for a comfortable experience a dedicated video card is required.

    Since my job transferred from Windows to OSX. Love the power of unix in OSX, shortcuts, UI - for working feel way more productive. Still have a Windows 10 machine for gaming and a second OSX(hackintosh).

  • Posted to 4K/5K Monitor Suggestions for MacBook/Macbook Pro, Aug 05, 2015

    At home i have a Samsung u28d590d 28" 4k monitor.

    Don't recommend it for design work - the view angles aren't great, colors seem meehish as it has a TN panel. But otherwise love working on it - as everything is sharp, have tons of screen space.

    If your running as an external monitor on a MacBook be sure to have a dedicated video card, as on my MBP with Iris Pro struggles to deal with the 4k monitor, because for decent working i need to increase scaling. As under the hood OS X renders a bigger image and downscales them for sharper images.
