    considering Second (external) display options for a 27 inch iMac. How do 2k monitors (2560x1440) look next a 5k iMac? Will it look odd for day to day dual monitor setup?

    Looking at the BenQ SW2700PT for my photography pursuits. Open to suggestions. Thanks

    Assuming you are running your 5K display in Retina HDPI and not native resolution, text and lines won't be as sharp, but window sizing will be identical (and that is more important to me).

    thanks, good point (in Hdpi mode), will likely opt for a 27 2k
