    I am deciding on what kind of dell monitor to go with.

    Pretty much the Dell s2715h (1080p) version and $200 cheaper than...

    the Dell s2715h (4k).

    Im no graphic designer, but I would like something similar to retina and I will mostly be web browsing. Any movie / game stuff is done on my TV. I am just looking to create a budget friendly dock for my 2016 rMB. I will be going with the Mokin usb-c adapter and a Vivo monitor arm.

    So for my uses, thoughts?

    When going for a 27" screen I think 1080p is a bit low. Why not go for something in between the 2. 1440p monitors are widely available.

    But with both options I think you're good. It's more a matter of personal preference.

    EDIT: something from this line: Dell UltraSharp U....

    If I have to give my personal opinion

    Once I got used to looking at Retina screens... - Well, it physically hurts when I look at large 1080p monitors now. And by large, I mean ≈15+-inches. 150 PPI minimum I'd say.

    The Dell U2515 is pretty good and sure to work with whatever hub you've got that Macbook connected to.

    Using Dell U2715H (1440p) with Apple AV multiport adapter, no issues and very good resolution.
