Ultra Wide Monitor

Suggestions

Hello, I am very pleased with my home iMac.  My Work iMac was stolen. It is best I do not buy another one for work since it will encourage another break-in.

I can no longer work with low spec monitors.

I would be grateful for recommendations for an ultra-wide monitor that will work Macbook pro (2018). In other words, the computer will be the Macbook pro and the monitor will be the new ultra wide.

Size- anywhere from 32 inches as long as I am able to work with it close up (desk space). It should not look flashy like an iMac to motivate a break-in. My budget is up to £1k. If not enough for ultra wide any other iMac level monitor (27 inches). 

Thanks

I've not seen the stats, but I'm pretty sure people apart from Mac owners get broken into too.

I have been using a BENQ 3200 for a while now with my macbook pro, its excellent very useful to have a big screen plus an extra second screen (macbook) if I want it

I have one of these which is a good performer. Not ultrawide, standard 16:10 ratio, but QHD resolution.

I think standard aspect ratio monitor is better than ultrawide, reading documents is better with the extra height. 4K means you can fit 4 standard 1920x1080 windows on your screen.
Something like a BenQ PD3200U?

So you asked a question then made your own call and went with one that no-one recommended?

Cool.

Lol, I was thinking the same.

FT -I thought you were looking for 32+ inches, you’ve ended up with 27, I think you’ll be disappointed after a short while, and lose out on the productivity increases that a very large monitor or multiple monitors bring.
I use 3 Samsung 27 inch monitors with my laptop and i’d never go back to less.

Like I've always said - size matters!

Thanks for the options.

I asked for suggestions since I wanted to review other options, including what I was reviewing.

The one I have gone for goes very well with the MacBook. I spoke to Apple support and they recommend it taking account of my needs (not creative work) and my budget.

Earlier on I was thinking ultra wide, then on reflection, I thought it would be too much.

Bear in mind, I no longer do any detailed work. Imac (so good) proved I am okay. I may add another monitor later on if needed.

FT make sure you go to B & Q and get some bolts to secure it to your desk as it would be terrible if someone pinched your monitor after they pinched your Mac.
