I am not a gamer and have no interest in it
Currently, I have two 27" 4k monitors on my desk that I hook up to my Macbook Pro via Caldigit dock
I want this display. It looks completely awesome. However, before I invest $1700 to buy it I have a few questions as I am a complete novice at monitors and how to set them up resolution-wise
1. Can my Macbook Pro drive this huge monitor?
2. With a Caldigit dock, I am guessing I use a display cable from monitor to dock and a single USB-C from the dock to Macbook? Or will I need a TB3 cable?
3. What would the resolution settings be on my Macbook Pro? Specifically, I would need to know if it would run on DEFAULT or SCALED and if SCALED, what specific settings
4. What settings would I have to change the monitor to? The video I have included below does go into display settings the reviewer deemed optimal but I am wondering if it is going to be the same for the Mac (as he is running Windows)
I am going to be using this monitor strictly for email, spreadsheets, iMovie editing, and web browsing. Would this monitor be appropriate for that purpose? I don't like the two 27" monitors I am currently running only because they don't wrap around my peripheral vision.
Note: This is currently unavailable for purchase as of last week due to Samsung doing a recall on the monitor. I expect it will be back in the marketplace shortly.
