TLDR: This LCD monitor supports DisplayPort, which allows for 4K resolution @ 10-bit color, chorma 4:4:4, and 60Hz, which is all good.

Long:

Basically, you'll only be able to do 8-bit color (16.7M colors) over HDMI (2.0) @ 60 Hz and 4:4:4. So, when you view any image / game / whatevers that displays more than 8-bit color (10-bit, for example, is > 1B colors), you will see banding. Depending on how tolerant you are, the banding may / not be acceptable. (watching movies will be OK @ 8-bit color; graphics design artist or Photoshop work, not acceptable @ 8-bit, etc.)

This means most TVs, while the screen will do 10-bit, the HDMI 2.0 spec does not allow for it at the best settings. However, this is not a TV so, it has DP. Only drawback to this screen is no HDR / WCG.

What does that mean ? Sorry I really don't know. I know 60hz but what you wrote earlier seems to justify 60hz is ok?

Yes, but a fairly small amount of power. I think it's 7.5W, enough to charge a phone but not your laptop, which is kind of useless. It does data + video over USB-C though, which is kind of nice, no need to get another hub.

Oh, in the case, no. It has a standard power plug.

So this wouldn't be able to connect and charge MacBook pro? Thats a deal breaker for my situation.
