    Hello, I have a Macbook Pro 2010 17". It cannot use 4K display. According to the specs, the maximum resolutions for external display is 2560 x 1600. Anybody used this monitor with older Mac that does not support 4K? Can I use 1-2 of the 4 regions of this monitor to have crisp texts and graphics?

    Any issue with PWM?

    i have this monitor with a newer 2017 Mac. Though i thin it should work with the resolution you have there.
    I didnt see any PWM issues.
    Regarding the 4 regions, its ok - a bit small for me though.

    Do you use it under Mac and Windows? Any scaling issue as experienced by some Windows users using smaller 4K displays?

    So under parallels, i didn't notice any problem.
