    What are you using with your 5k iMac that's complimentary?

    I'm considering switching my current setup to a 5k iMac but my workflow kind of requires two displays and I'm curious as to what others are doing.

    I was using the Asus PB287Q. It worked perfectly and the screens scaled to the same size even though one was 5K and one was 4K.

    Nice, and I really like the price point also. Can you get them to sit pretty even?

    Yes, the $450ish Asus monitor has height adjustments unlike the $3500 computer sitting next to it. Used mDP to DP to connect it.

    Anyone tried a dell 30"? I am replacing my current setup with an iMac 5k. I don't know what to do with my current U3014.

    Just curious, does this monitor let you flip vertically? I'm thinking about doing a vertical setup for the left monitor and the right monitor to be the imac.
