    Looking at these for replacing two aging LCDs.

    Anyone out there try these UltraWide displays?

    Almost got the 49" Dell but then I saw the refresh rate on that Samsung.

    Also mindful of the mgf codes, I almost purchased an older slower model from Samsung (it seemed cheap at the time).

    I replaced my Apple 30 with a factory refurbished LG 27MD5KA 27" UltraFine 5K IPS. So good!

    Thanks Bob!
    I have the older LG 32 4K and its working fine as well as the newer Dell 32" (day job).
    But for home, still leaning on a one monitor to rule them all option :)

    My friend changed. Everything is super. It became better than it was.

    We're big fans of the Dell UltraSharp displays, and have used them for about 15 years with all our Macs. (And Windows and Linux machines.) I actually think they're better than the comparable stock Apple displays.
