Summary: I'm being dragged, kicking and screaming into the 21st century. This monitor is sooooo much better than the old analog one I've been dealing with for years. Until you actually switch from analog to digital on your P/C, just like your TV, you cannot imagine the improvement. I have been researching these monitors for over a year, and this is the one I *finally* decided to buy. I do not regret that choice.
Summary: First of all, this monitor is not the latest design or technology. It has been on the market for a few years. That being said, it originally sold for as much as $600.00 from most sources. I needed a larger monitor to fill a space left when I moved an older monitor to a laptop because the new laptop screen was so small on my desk. I looked at several options but settled on the VK278Q because it fit my price and performance criteria.
Summary: Yes, it works on a macbook pro, 2011 mavericks. I almost had a fit while reading reviews during shipping that others had not made the feature work. I contacted customer support who did answer fairly promptly, every time I emailed. I asked if the webcam worked, they said NO. Panic. The box came, I worried about putting it all back in, or shipping it back without trying it.
Summary: I have this same monitor at work, and liked it so much that I had to buy the same one for home. The only thing negative I can even think to say is that in a home setting, this monitor is pretty bright. I didn't notice how bright under the fluorescent lights at work. Overall, I'm very happy with it.
