    What about the Dell UltraSharp 27 4K Monitor: U2718Q?

    It seems to closely match what you're after. Tiny bezel, lots of ports (although no USB-C/Thunderbolt), VESA compliant

      This is a tempting screen—I have pretty much the same requirements as OP and thinking of getting this.

        I literally just ordered one, because I'm tired of working from only my laptop screen when I don't want to head into the office, so happy to come back and convey my impressions when I come back to NYC and it set up in about ~2 weeks.

          Yeah I'd be very interested! Hard to find any reviews.

            The short version, after using it for a week or so: I'm happy. Sharp resolution, great color, sleek industrial design. The pixel density is high enough that I scale up the display to make text & UI elements large enough that I don't need to squint.

            It works great with my work computer (a 15", late-2015 MacBook Pro) though my old MBP (13", late 2013) only pipes over 30hz, which is doesn't really cut it for design work — but that's an issue with the computer being old, not the monitor. But just a callout in case you have an older machine.

        It is rather drool-worthy.

        I'm currently running one of those re-packaged ‘defect’ 27" CrossOver panels that Dell & Apple rejected. I can't find a single fault with it and the screen is gorgeous—but it is DVI only. So one of these Dell UltraSharps would be perfect as a primary driver.
