    Significant differences between the Apple Studio Display and the Dell U2723QE for a coder?

    If I'm staring at my screen for 16 hours a day and need 2 really nice monitors so my eyes don't fail, will I see any significant differences between the new Apple Display and the Dell U2723QE? Just about the specs, I know it's 4K vs 5K and higher brightness, but for programming for work...

    Dillemma: What monitor solution for MBP, with high pixel density and large real estate?

    I have a 2015 iMac 5K 27" and a 27" LED Cinema display, side by side now.This is being replaced by an M1 Max 16" soon, so I'm looking for a new monitor solution. My plan is to use the 16" display of the MBP along with my desktop monitor, so no matter what I choose, I'll have the "dual monitor...

    5K Apple Thunderbolt display build

    In summer 2020 I saw this DIY video and wanted to do something similar, but I had some reservations about the way that it has been done with an iMac chassis. Obviously, these types of displays look fantastic, but as a self-avowed Apple devotee, I just couldn’t stomach the idea of just having a...

    5K 27“ computer monitor recommendation?

    I'm looking for a 5K 27" computer monitor but it seems there is literally only one option on the market: the LG/Apple UltraFine 5K 27" display. I prefer this resolution at this size because it amounts to 220 PPI, which is 'Retina' (HiDPI) at macOS's native integer scaling. Apparently there...

    MP All Models Any good source for proper wallpapers for 5K & 6K displays?

    Hello everybody, I don’t know if this is the right place to ask, but I figure more people will face a situation similar to mine. Where do you get wallpapers for those stunning 5K and 6K displays? Preferably even a little bit wider, as I would like to account for the bezel. I have been unable...

    I don't understand the iMac resolution

    So this is my first iMac and yes it is 5k. But Apple mentions that It looks best at half the resolution, lets say 2.5k, downscaling it by 2. So I don't get how 4 pixels forced to display the same color of a dot is better than 4 pixel being able to display 4 variants of the same color for the...

    Should I buy a used 2014 5K iMac or an LG Ultrafine 5k display?

    I have a maxed out 2017 MacBook Pro 15 and need a new external display. But those LG's are SO EXPENSIVE. I can buy a maxed out late 2014 5K iMac for just a few hundred dollars more. I would just use the iMac when I'm at home and the MacBook when I'm at the office or out since I know you can't...

    Which 27" 5K display for a MacPro Late 2013?

    Hi, I would like to buy a new 27" 5K display to be connected via two TB2 cables to the nMP (D500). I read here and there, but it seems that there are not so many compatible devices. Apart from the quality of the panel, for me it would be very important to have a perfect integration with the...

    Shades in corners (2014 iMac 5K)

    Hi there, My iMac is almost 4 years old and I started observing shades in lower corners of the display. They are visible on the bright background. Is there anything I can do about that? Apple care is over :( Will this get worse if display not replaced?

    Run LG Ultrafine 5K & 4K from CalDigit TS3 Dock

    I have a 2017 15" MBP and one of each of the LG Ultrafine 5k and 4k monitors. I wanted to try and run these from my CalDigit TS3 Thunderbolt dock (using the 4K in portrait and the 5K in landscape), but it looks like it's not working as I expected. CalDigit specifies that the dock can support one...

    Does anyone know of a way to disable the built-in camera and microphone in the LG UltraFine 5K display that Apple sells? My office is in a secure area; I’m not allowed to have any cameras or microphones in my office at work. I’d love to pair an LG 5K display with a 5K iMac, but can’t do so if...

    Title explains... since upgrading I lost all my video editing capabilities. The dongle for Davinci Resolve 14 is not recognised (and neither is an ANT+ dongle that I use for cycling) and my alternative for editing video on my MacBook late 16 (15" with touchbar and 4Gb) can't even handle FCPX...

    Is Radeon Pro 570 with 4GB of VRAM really good enough for...

    Marketing and reality can be very different for the end user. Is the Radeon Pro 570 with 4GB of VRAM truly enough power to drive the internal 5K display + the 5K LG Ultrafine via T3? Would the fan go wild all day in this configuration watching 4K video on both displays simultaneously? Thanks in...

    Anybody using 5K Philips Brilliance 275P (aka 275P4 aka 275P4VYKEB) with Macbook Pro?

    Since Dell UP2715K seems discontinued and I didn't like hp z27q I wanted to give Philip's 5K a try. But before ordering on-line I was looking for some information about its compatibility with my MacBook Pro 2015 15" (ATI version). To my deep surprise there is close to none. UP2715K is...

    Who do I contact for repair? I called Apple and they said I need to contact LG? Are they correct? I thought as it's first year it should be Apple?
