Summary: Very high standard monitor but yes is expensive and is not 4k if you want something that look nice good quality good resolution fast monitor and you don't care about the price this maybe is for you. But i have to admit that there are some cheaper and almost same quality monitors. also the connectors at the back are a bit hard to reach them they are to close one for the other.
Summary: I have every belief that this monitor will be tremendous. With this monitor you need two important things: a top of the line graphics card and preferably DisplayPort 1.2 cables.
Pros: Could be the best monitor available.
Cons: 1) the picture quality with DVI can go to 2560 x 1440 but is ONLY AS GOOD as your video card., 2) This computer uses the DP or HDMI cable to transmit the audio signal to the monitor speakers. There is no speaker or headphone plug on the monitor.
Summary: 1) the picture quality with DVI can go to 2560 x 1440 but is only as good as your video card. I have an older Dell and can get the 2560 x 1440, but the picture looks more stretched than clean. It is not as sharp as i would like. 2) THE MONITOR HAS SPEAKERS IN IT, BUT NO PLACE TO PLUG IT IN. Strange. After finally reading the manual, it says about the speakers "the volume can be adjusted if the input source is DisplayPort or HDMI...." There is no port for a speaker plug.
Great picture quality combined with cheap materials

Summary: I'have been using this monitor on a daily basis since July 2013. The color and picture quality is great in every way. I have not seena monitor where the color temperature can be adjusted by 500K increments from 4000-10,000K and the gamma level from 1.6-2.7 by 0.1 increments. My PC is hooked up via the DVI-D and the Mac is via the DisplayPort connector, this way I can switch between them easily. However, the touch sensitive switch controls at the base is not the best.
Summary: You can't wrong with this monitor, this is as close as it gets to the Mac Thunderbolt display (you can use the thunderbolt ports with the displayport ports on this monitor). Seeing as how the Mac one and this one are the same price though, not sure which one is better value.
