    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.
