    Hello!

    I known it's not MBPr specific but I can't really find much info on it.

    Anyone here have 4k on 27/32" monitors? I have the a 24" 4K (like the Ultrafine) and it looks fantastic. However, there are no 24" 4k monitors available here where I am now so I'm thinking of ordering a 27/32" one. However, the PPI of this is different - ~200 PPI vs~150PPI and I'm not sure if the latter looks 'non-retina'

    Anyone here have any experience or are running dual 24 4k AND 27/32 4k? My main worry is that the two monitors look jarring side by side.

    Just order one from a place with easy returns and compare (i.e. Best Buy or Walmart). I have two 24" Dells that are 4K, and when I first bought them I purchased the same ones in 27" to compare. Settled for the 24" because I can see the entire frame of the monitor easier, all while having the monitor up close to geek out at the clarity of the pixels.

    Unfortunately, I don't live in the US and need to ship internationally :( There are no retailers near me which offer it so I can't try it out on a store (even the official Apple resellers near me only carry the old/non-retina iMacs)

    I hear ya. I don't know what Dell's international shipping and returns are like. There are also 5K monitors, but they are much more expensive. Also, I believe you will need a 2016 or newer MBP to drive each of those with a single cable (don't quote me on that)

    Everyone's eyes and preferences are different, good luck!
