It has been suggested that my MacBook Pro 2014 can output 4K at 60Hz over the DisplayPort…this is not what I understand from reading this: but perhaps I’m wrong…however I’d rather have a 21:9 screen than a 4K one now after using it for a while, so I’m happy. When editing the video is only visible in a small window in the corner, so I never get to see it in 4K/UHD until it’s finished….at which point I can watch it on my main UHD TV.

    The problem with this monitor are: u can't work efficiently with multiple timelines….and this 29 inch monitor looks dwarf when u stand it beside 24 inch monitor..this looks like u r working on a 22 inch tall monitor…And for the price it is selling, u can build two 24 inch monitor setup easily…with 1920*2 = 3840 by 1080p monitor…So no good for me..
