I'd be going 4k with LG or Acer.

I've just upgraded to an https://www.overclockers.co.uk/lg-27...mo-155-lg.html
Its lightyears ahead of the 1080P LG monitor it replaced.
Depending on your proposed useage I would recommend looking at the type of panel ( TN, IPS etc ) as well as the resolution as each type have their pro's and con's.
Also consider the additional load all those pixels will place on your GPU & CPU.

This^^^^

My personal opinion is for any sort of general use where you want really nice colours, designing, viewing things, working etc and occasional gaming then IPS is what I would go for.

There are of course advantages and disadvantages of each type of panel also price!

I should update the thread.

I went for one of my original choices as the reviews were good and the price was ok.

I ordered the DEL U2520D below
https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/ultr...or-accessories

2560 x 1440 on a 25" IPS panel.
It has USB-C so I only have to plug the cable into the MacBook for it to send a video signal one way, and receive power the other way, so the MacBook is always charged when working.

I ordered it one evening, it was despatched the following day and I received it by UPS the day after.

Its a nice screen, looks good, small bezel, nicely built, and the colour is as close to Space Grey as you could imagine, to match the Space Grey MacBook.

The screen resolution is just right, and working on designs on CAD the clarity is spot on.
Not so much so when you're working on an Excel spreadsheet when text is small, but its very good.
I can sit so much further away from the screen, getting a lot less eye fatigue.

You do hear the fans on the MacBook kick in every now and again, so in this respect I'm pleased I didn't go for the 4k monitor which would have added even more load.

Icons and clarity at native resolution is spot on, everything easy enough to read and clear, without being too small.

On a 4k I think I would've had to use some scaling, and this was an area where it seems Macs have some issues on clarity. I don't know though - you read so much it just becomes confusing.

Overall, been working on it for a week just over now and its been a joy to have.

Worth the investment.
