Great prices on these monitors. The 25" 1440p has a great pixel density and looks really sharp. Compraable to the asus proart monitors.

you probably would want a sammy or dell 49" that is equivalent to 2x27"

You will lose desktop real estate compared to what you are used to. The two times I've done that I've felt it until I remedied it.

I don't understand why you people are getting so mad at the guy who said to not use this with a Mac. Apple removed sub-pixel anti-aliasing from macOS a few years ago, meaning that resolutions like this one no longer scale cleanly with a Mac. You will get blurry text and everything will look slightly "off," not to mention that Dell monitors have a long and storied history of not being able to display RGB with Macs, defaulting to YPbPr, which looks bad.

There are hacky "workarounds" to this, like using BetterDisplay to fake a HiDPI resolution, but they still won't look as good as a panel that scales cleanly. And all the tricks to force RGB no longer work.

Buy this at your own peril if you own a Mac, but don't go around pretending like you know what you're talking about because you play video games at 1440p and think that it's the universal holy grail of resolutions.
Amex has a "spend $599, get $120 back", so this comes out to $500 pretax.
Bad advice. 34" ultra wide 1440p has the same pixel density as 27" 2560x1440p. Pixel density on 27" 1440 is great for productivity. Text is sharp and clear, just slightly less so than 27" 4K. Also, the Apple panel is overpriced.

That's a great price for one of these. This is different from the similar LG models in that it has higher color accuracy out of the box and it has 3x the input selection. It also is a usb hub as well with full power delivery and ethernet

Has anyone tested either of these monitors with an M1 Mac? Have experienced many issues with Dell monitors and M1 unfortunately.

Looks to be a 2020 model with a 60 hz refresh rate . Pixel density seems to be 109 which if accurate would not be that great - but it's hard to find detailed reviews . This seems to be half the original price but I think more recent models by other brands may be a better buy even if their original msrp is lower.

Quote from JayL2087 :
If you can afford it, go for the Apple Studio Display. I personally wouldn't recommend 3440 x 1440 at 30+ inches for Apple. If you're like me you'd notice the discrepancy in text clarify extremely quickly. The 2560 x 1440 25'' panel will look much sharper relative to the 34'' panel.

Regarding testing, I have used the smaller one with M1 through USB C, and I didn't encounter any issues.

Re price on U2520D - price actually went up relative to yesterday (on Dell's site). It was in the low 200s, so cheap that I contemplated buying another one despite just ordering multiple U2723QEs.

The pixel density is fine. It's the same as 27" 1440p and that's not blurry at all.

Not these but i'm using some older P2715Q monitors with my M1 and while they only run at 30hz they plenty clear.

Almost any of the ultrasharp monitors @ 4k will be fine though i'd stay away from the USB-C versions. Not sure why, don't have much time in the seat troubleshooting, but i'm guessing it has to do with usb-c vs. thunderbolt.

I prefer HDMI too for these since DisplayLink software is required to get the full power out of DisplayPort connections. I have used several thunderbolt 3 to dual HDMI dongles for desktop use and they've worked fine for almost 5 years now (1 year with an m1 pro).

I've been looking at an U2722 but I just don't feel like dropping that with my own cash.

This model is end of 2020 basically a 2021 model. Next model will come out for end of 2022 or be a 2023 model. Dell does these every 2 years it seems.

This one is different than other ultrawides in that it has a full usb hub built in with high power delivery, significant number of inputs, and ethernet. Also color calibration is better than LG ultrawides. This is a good deal for what it is

Also the lg monitors don't offer nearly the connections this one does since my graphics card does not have hdmi

pixel density of 109 is not bad. 27" 1440p is usable, but 25" 1440p is about as sharp as you would ever need for most purposes. A good sweet spot.

24" 1080p is a popular size at around 93 ppi, even 109 is an upgrade

No it did not. I have been following the 2520d and it has been $289 for the past week

I believe the 2518D lowest price was around $250. These have never gone lower than that for the 1440p monitors
