    Coming soon:

    http://www.lg.com/uk/monitors/lg-32UD99

    RRP at $999 so hopefully will be sold cheaper by retailers.

    It will also allow brightness control via the Mac.. hopefully!

    Do you think this has more "work space / real estate" compared to the 34UD98 version?

    This 32 inch model has a higher pixel count, yet its diagonally smaller yet taller. Does this mean you see less side to side, however from top to bottom you would be able to see more?

    Would productivity for multiple windows be better on this monitor or the 34UD98?

    Anyone have their thoughts?

    No, productivity would be better on the 34UD98 because you don't have to do any scaling. If you want even more screen real estate, there's the 38CB99-W, but it's $1500.

    The 32UD99 would require some kind of scaling, which would reduce your screen real estate. You could run it at it's native 4K resolution, but text will be super small.

    You would probably run this at 1440p or thereabouts. I'd love to see what it's like at that resolution.

    You would get larger text, which is what you're looking for.

    Yes. But with the same overheard of processing a non-2X res.

    The one thing I don't like about this display is the stand..

    Do you have the link to the 34UD98? I can only find the 34UC98 but that comes only with a thunderbolt 2 connection. I just got the touchbar MacBook Pro and looking for a 21:9 monitor that supports thunderbolt3

    Has anyone confirmed if you can adjust the brightness via an external keyboard (F1 & F2 keys) when using a Mac ?

    I can't unfortunately. Also, my sound doesn't work, I connect my 15" MBP 2017 via USB-C with the delivered cable. It worked the first day, but not after that anymore... Anyone else have any success?

    Just a follow up, in case anyone ever has the same issue. A restart of my Mac fixed the issue.

    I cannot adjust volume or brightness from the Mac's keyboard, but I of course can from the monitor's own screen.
