    Can you tell me wich one are my best options ?

    I'm looking for a decent monitor for my rMBP 15' late 2013 i7 with GT750M. at least 27’ 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz not a TN. With good specs not over 1k. Not for gaming only for graphic design, might be a good accuracy colors and that's it. I precise that I only need one screen.

    Here is my short list, can you tell me if they all can do that ? :

    ViewSonic VP2772
    ViewSonic VP2770

    Dell U2713H
    Dell U2715H
    Dell P2715Q
    Dell U3014

    BenQ GW2765HT
    BenQ BL3200PT

    Samsung U28D590D

    Eizo FlexScan EV2736W

    Acer B276HK
    Acer B326HUL

    What's seem's to be the best options out there ?
    Thanks for helping !!

    I own the late 2013 rMBP without the GT750M and I own and run the Dell 4K P2715Q @ 3840x2160 & 60Hz on this computer with no problems at all, other than an occasional (rare) issue with the monitor waking up after the computer sleeps. Gorgeous, love it. Recommended. :apple::cool:

    >Dell P2715Q x 2

    I saw one, bought two. I have the same rMBP as you do. They're arriving this week if mother nature allows. I'll be mounting them on either a Herman Miller Dual Flo or Ergotron LX Dual Stacking arm.

    My only mistake was buying direct from Dell about a week ago. They didn't ship until 5 days later, they sat in a warehouse over the weekend, and now they're going out via FedEx Ground (ugh) from Nashville. About a day before they shipped there was a big price drop on Amazon - for a few more bucks they'd be here already (I have Prime), not in the middle of Kansas. :mad: Lesson learned...

    My Samsung U28D590D came in today, and its AMAZING. Huge improvement over the Monoprice 27-inch monitor that I had.

    Did you get the USB ports working? I would rather have my keyboard connected to my monitor rather than plugging 2 wires to my Mac each time.

    I just received this same Dell this week and it is a fantastic monitor. Blows my co-workers Samsung U28D590D out of the water.

    Only real complaint is that the bezels look cheap, but that's been par for the course with Dell monitors forever. Top tier panels in a crappy case.

    Not yet, my cable aren't long enough. My rMBP is here in Portland and my monitors are en route and somewhere between here and Wamsutter Wyoming, in a (really cold) train car... :mad:

    If you haven't already, pore through the last few hundred posts in this thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1816805 - I've been following it for some time and there's lots of helpful feedback and input.

    I share your concerns with USB ports not working as we'd hope, given (on my end) that Dell offers a Windows driver but no Mac driver. I'm planning to hunt around for a driver that addresses this. I'll keep you posted after my toys, er, monitors, arrive...

    I have the P2715Q and the USB ports are working fine under Yosemite 10.10.2. I have seen a couple of posts that they do not work under Mavericks. I can answer questions or send screen shots if anyone has any specific concerns. Thanks.

    Good to know we have help here, and I'll report more when my monitors arrive.

    I just checked my status update, and the boxes are still showing up as being in Wamsutta, so I'll be still needing some REALLY long cables... :(

    Hello thanks for your comments so if I'm reading right you think I can buy DELL P2715Q because there no equivalent actually ? And also because the price is good for the quality of the screen. I think I will order it quickly... Thanks

    So far there aren't other "better" 4k monitors out there IMO.

    As to "quickly", today Amazon dropped it down to their lowest price I've ever seen at Amazon - $555, with free 2-day shipping if you have Prime. With a deep discount at Dell I spent only a bit less than that, and Dell's shipping is sloooooooooow.

    Thanks I will check that but I'm living in France...
    I was thinking to buy it with Amazon because I also need some books and a keyboard.
    It could be available here in France from today for the day 17 march until 31 march... For almost 700€.

    Ah, you're in France. I wish you luck at finding this monitor relatively cheap - especially since it's made in China, after all. I live in Oregon US - we're one of the few states in the US without a State tax, and we shop local and internet prices regularly to find the lowest price. I can go to a nearby Best Buy store, and they'll match the lowest available internet price.

    I've been to France several times, and two of my best friends are from southern France. I miss food that tastes good, like eggs that don't taste like paste, or mustard that doesn't taste like vinegar (instead of how it really should taste), sausage that's too over-salted, and bread that tastes like nothing. You can get food that tempts your senses and I can get a cheap Chinese-made monitor for a low price - I'm not sure who's getting the better "deal" here...

    I'll enjoy my monitors, but I still miss good wine and food...

    Thanks for your comments...

    French food is good but maybe not the most healthy food, I've got some difficulties to find good products there's a lot of industrialisation in agriculture, too much pesticide and bad products... I miss my tomatoes from south of France the old fashion way of producing food !!! Hope we get back to it soon.

    There's some new monitors, who like promising on the paper like the LG 34UC97 unfortunately the courbe is not so wide, the color accuracy doesn't seems to be perfect and it's expensive...

    I f I have to pay 700€, I really want the best. Because, there some good stuff more affordable something like 400 / 300€ who might be do the job.

    It's a bit strange this retina situation I can't think about buying a non retina screen because it will be a bit rude nearby my MBPR and I think I will prefer working in a smaller screen just to enjoy better pixel density...

    Thanks

    Maybe 24' could be an issue ? But it look like there's some troubles with this screen ???

    My actual resolution on my 15' MBPR is about 1680x1050 (retina) I find it a bit too small but it's a good compromise as I need more space for working...

    It's difficult to know witch is the more convenient without viewing first. I would like to be able to have two big windows at least...

    They do on my first one. My second one does not seem to be but I am testing tonight to see if its just the cable.

    ----------

    Dang. I'm a Amazon Prime addtic. wish they would have had this deal when I bought. I got both mine for less then this price though and since both of them charge tax in my state i really would not have saved anything though.

    What makes any of those look better than the Dell? The Acer is TN, ther is no info about the BenQ - it could very well be using the same panel as the Dell.

    The Acer B276HK is an IPS panel. "With a 3840 x 2160 UHD 4K resolution, the B276HK ymjdpprz 27" Widescreen LED Backlit IPS Monitor from Acer is ideal for a variety of uses including office environments, libraries, computer labs, and more. This B6 series monitor delivers dynamic visuals with a 4K resolution, 6 ms response time, 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and a 300 cd/m² brightness rating. Setup and configuration of the display is simple with HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI, and USB ports."

    But your point is good - what makes this better than the Dell? Not sure anything does. Price is about the same, brightness is 300 on Acer/350 on Dell, response time is faster on the Acer @ 6ms vs 9ms. I'd have to see some professional reviews of the Acer before I would put it above the Dell.

    The BenQ has HDMI 2.0, which is great, but not many computers support it yet.

    Ok, yeah the Amazon reviews referenced TN but I see that those reviews are grouped for a bunch of different sizes.
