    Nice review, what are you going to replace it with?

    Just kidding, I decided to go with the ASUS ProArt PA279Q 27" IPS 2560x1440. No issue at all and beautiful calibrated 99% AdobeRGB colours. ;)

    Would you consider switching to the new thunderbolt display when they're released? :)

    What Thunderbolt display? You mean if apple releases new Thunderbolt 4K displays or?

    For gaming, can it letterbox to 16:9? Not sure if the rmbp can handle all those pixels lol, and I imagine most games would have trouble with such a nonstandard resolution.

    Surprisingly I've not had too many gaming issues, but yes. Games can simply occupy whatever native resolution you send to the panel.

    Yepp :) I think your primary choice choosing another display over the current TB monitor is because of the color reproduction or gloss screen?

    For console, you'll either crop top and bottom or just have black bars on the side.

    Very true. Especially for PC. But I managed to run Portal on my Mac (steam)
    at native resolution, set to low-medium details. Running on my MBPr 15" with late 2013 with nVidia graphics. Definitely playable.

    Color reproduction. But didn't know that I would enjoy the matt screen so much!
    The gloss screen looks amazing :eek: but actually in real life use
    especially next to the window sucks a lot actually.

    Enjoying my semi-matt screen a lot and my 100% RGB and 99% Adobe RGB.

    But the LG is very good at colour/matt screen, just the quality issue!!

    Read/heard a lot more comments on my video about other reported problems.

    I find the review a bit misleading. If it were really a 'flaw' then every unit would be suffering from it. My 34um95 definitely does not have this problem.
