    So I did a search for this monitor in the forums and nobody has posted anything about it. Search results turn up zero.

    Costco has it for 219.99. At 2560x1080, it's pretty close to a 1440p monitor shorted a few hundred pixels on the height. That being said, it's ridiculously cheap! I can buy four of these for much less than two quality 1440p monitors and get tons more of screen real estate. Even three of them would get more screen real estate than one LG 34UM95-P that's not even out yet.

    Anyone have any experience with this monitor on a 2013 MacPro? Dual or triple monitor setups?

    Thanks in advance for your feedback, thoughts, and suggestions.

    I have seen the monitor in person? I have and it is really really short on height. If this was a 29 inch in this format, different story.

    I'm wondering how it would play with my early-2011 13" MBP, but I can't seem to find the Mac's maximum output resolution

    Anyone knows if it goes up to the resolution of this monitor?

    The max resolution is 2560 by 1080. And you can only get that output on your mac by using a display port cable and not HDMI.


    hope that helps

    Have a look at https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4672999 with reference to the switchresx settings. You will have to replicate the exact settings.

    I have used this monitor on a 2011 iMac, 2013 MacMini, 2012 & 2014 MacBook Pro
