    Anyone have this monitor? Would you recommend it for a Mac Pro 4,1? I know there are reports of problems with the DisplayPort connectors on this model.

    The monitors are fine. The dp ports work fine if connecting directly to the monitor.
    The problems reported are where people try and use the MST feature to connect one monitor to the computer and then connect via the dp out to a second monitor.

    You run both monitors direct into the GPU and no problems. We use them at work fed by dp and not one has had any problems with being connected in this way.

    I have one and love it. The thin bezels are surprisingly more pleasant than one might expect, and I lament the idea of ever going back to a larger bezel.

    My only issue was in the second year of use a giant green line appeared out of no where and wouldn't go away. Dell's customer service kind of sucks but if you can wade through the bull--- their monitors all come with a three year replacement warranty which is nice.

    Thanks for the info. I only plan to use one monitor, so hopefully I'll be fine.
