    What resolution you use on the new iMac 5k? Best for retina or scale and 5k? Me I use best of retina since the 5k is too small the letters for my eyes.

    "Best for display" for me also. It's the sharpest. Plus, everything's too tiny otherwise.

    I agree. I use best for display. This was the biggest reason for getting a Retina iMac: To enjoy the sharp display.

    Best for Display. The 27'' provides plenty of screen room without using one of the scaled resolutions which significantly degrades the quality at pixel level.

    I also use "best for retina"

    which is actually 2560 x 1440, but since scaling works so much better on iOS, all you see is crisp bright eye candy.

    I haven't tried 5160 x 2880, but I've seen 4k monitors running at max resolution and how teensy tiny everything gets. My eyesight isn't THAT good ;)

    "Best for Retina" except when playing Diablo 3, where I choose the 5120x2880 option from the game menu.
