I own this monitor. Picked it up because it was the cheapest 4k IPS monitor with USB-C. I use it with a 3rd gen X1 Carbon via Display Port and an XPS 15 (9560) via USB-C.
USB-C works perfectly every time. Charges the XPS (somewhat slowly). The 14ms gtg response time seems exaggerated, but I do primarily web and productivity on it. Colors, brightness, and viewing angles are good. I run at 150% scaling in Windows 10 and everything looks very nice and crisp, while giving me quite a bit more space than a 1080p monitor.

Unfortunately, when I plug in the USB-C, it sometimes makes the monitor confused (even if I don't turn it on) and it really struggles to get back to DisplayPort input. Cycling power on the monitor typically resolves it.

I cannot recommend this monitor for use with more than one computer. This monitor has NO automatic input detection. Really sucks considering the input button is very unresponsive and on the back side.

I probably would not buy this again. They really need to add a USB hub into this thing so it can act like a dock like the LG Mac displays... and automatic input detection. Those two features (even with a $50-100 price bump) would make this thing a GREAT for a lot of users.

FYI - this does NOT seem to do 4k60 via HDMI.

can anyone (outside of gaming purposes) actually leverage a 27" 4k monitor w/o scaling and actually read things?

taking into account of the 60w type-c charging capability, i'd say this is an excellent deal!
think of it as a combination of a typical 27-inch 4k IPS monitor + 60W USB PD charger + type-c to displayport adapter with PD charging passthrough feature

Not on windows 7..

Windows 10, the scaling's better.. but still not great..

Mac, works better than windoz for scaling to 4k, but still not perfect in all applications..

bummer on the 14ms GTG response time. It does have free sync so that is nice. Tempting for a development monitor, but not sure if I want to drop $349 right now on a monitor when BF is just around the corner with probably better brand.

I use a Dell P2715q every day with only minimal scaling (110%). The real estate is great.

Anyone know the lowest seen for a 34 4k IPS? I'm wondering if a 34 is out of my budget.

For 4k resolution, I am looking at 32"-37". 27" is way too small.

Just going to chime in on the no scaling trend... I find 2560x1440 perfect in the 27" space. I imagine I would have to sit very close to use a 4K display in the same display class.

I use a 28 inch 4K monitor monitor at work @ native res and no scaling.

Works great for productivity. But I am also young and my eyes can take it.
