    Anyone know of a good 34/38" UW Monitor with USB C Power Output of 85W+ to charge a 2018 Macbook Pro 15". Finding a lot that only have output of 60W. Never having done this setup before, I do not know if the 60W power output is sufficient enough for the 15" Macbook Pro's. Can anyone chime in on that?

    With hesitation I would point you towards the 34WK95U-W. Currently there are compatibility issues with this monitor and the 2016-2018 15" MBP. It appears that the issues have been resolved with the newest developer version of Mojave, but I would wait until public release and confirmed testing before making the purchase.

    Outside of those issues, it should tick all the boxes for your display needs. 5Kx2K 34" ultrawide monitor with 85W power delivery over USB-C (TB3).

    Yes I saw this one and the current problems with it. This would be my choice for a flat screen monitor but I am leaning towards a curved screen. Probably should have said that in the OP.

    I don’t really push my 15” a lot but my LG 4K keeps it at 100% with 60w

    Mohave 10.14.2 released today and it seems to have fixed the problem with the 34WK95u. It now is able to do a complete handshake with the MBP 2018 and will wake after sleep as it should.
