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 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 use prolite. Although I dont use a mac. But arent they all plug and go? Or in my technophobe world, get my brother to check out reviews, order it and set it up!

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.

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.
