Great USB-C 4K monitorI purchased this as my Mac Pro 15 just has USB-C ports. Even my Windows Lenovo Yoga 720 has just the USB-C port for connecting into an external monitor. I like the one cable connection to this monitor without the need for any adaptors.
Love the fact that it has a USB Hub but it appears to be USB 2.0 rather than USB 3.0 as the speeds maintained are lower.
The On Screen controls work well and are responsive enough.
The speakers on the monitor are are not very good though. But do the job.

Nice Monitor.I received the monitor like 2 weeks ago for my Mac Mini 2018 and it works really great! I'll like to buy a second one to replace the old Samsung TV/Monitor I have now like second screen. The only issues for me will be the sound quality as the Samsung's is much better and the stand as the curve shape takes some useful space in my desk.

Great monitor for MacBook ProI bought this monitor to replace an older ASUS my grandson had designs on. I selected it because it uses a single USB-C connection to supply both the MacBook’s video and power requirements. The 65W power supply charges MacBook quickly, and the video is excellent. With my settings, the power supply is turned off when the monitor is turned off; it does charge the computer when asleep. The supplied cables are high quality.
