    Now: 24-inch Apple Thunderbolt display.

    Some time in 2018: 27-inch Apple Retina Thunderbolt display.

    The Dell Ultra HD 4K Monitor P2415Q 24-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor. One of the best monitors you can buy. At work I use the pre-4K variant. They also make a P2715Q which is a 27-Inch 4K Monitor. I can't recommend them enough. They come out of the factory calibrated, and the colors are spot on next to my MacBook Pro.

      I have the same, I totally agree. I have one for work and home. They are great values.

      I use this too!

      I actually have a pair, one at home which I use with my Windows desktop (mostly to play games @ 4K) and one at work I use with my work Mac. It's the closest thing you can get to a Retina Display, save for a LG UltraFine 4K/5K.

      My only gripe is the 16:9 aspect radio which is a lot less tall than what I've used to with Macs.

    It would be awesome to have a DN faq/sidebar to post answers and resources for the most frequently asked questions like this one. This is like a once a month thing.

    It has to be a 16:10 ratio monitor. Once you have used 16:10, you wouldn't want to go back to 16:9 ratio.

    At the office: 27" non-retina iMac. At home: Dell Ultrasharp Ultrawide 29"(21:9 aspect ratio)

    To be honest, sometimes it is a bit weird to switch between them. I love the horizontal space on the ultrawide, I can easily fit two apps/artboards/whatever next to each other and after that iMac feels like a square. But sometimes I feel like iMacs vertical space gives me more freedom, so I cant say that 29" ultrawide is the best option. Large 16:10 probably is the safest bet.

    ASUS PB278Q 27" WQHD 1440p IPS. LOVE it! I'm looking to get a second monitor that I can have vertical. Any suggestions?

    Since last December I've been using a LG 38uc99-w (38" UltraWide 21:9). It has a mild curve but it didn't take much time to get used to. I love how wide it is, hated the price but the productivity boost was worth it. I do Front-end dev and design and it's made my life easier. It's taller then a 27" Cinema Display and obviously wider. To me, text also appears to be a bit sharper and the colors are great.

    Previously I've used Apple's 27" Cinema Display

    The Macbook screen + 27" Thunderbold display but a LG Ultrafine 5K is on the truck over here.

    Some mediocre Dell screen at work. Very curios about the LG Ultrafine 4K and 5K screens since they seem to discontinue the Thunderbolt Display.

    5k iMac at home

    27" non retina iMac at work - surprisingly the difference is not that huge. The lack of a retina screen does make working with mobile devices harder, but otherwise it's not as huge a letdown as I'd have expected.

    I run a pair of 27" Apple Thunderbolts, as well as the built-in 13" mbp retina screen. Does the job.

    AOC 27" Q2770PQU. 2560x1440p resolution. Have one at work with my MBP 15" and one at home for my Windows PC. Great display with accurate colors. Also good enough for gaming with 5ms. Only bad side is that they are quite bulky. Pretty cheap though when I bought them, but they aren't for sale anymore as far as I know. I would upgrade to a 4K monitor for my work setup but my MBP 15" can't do 4K with 60hz :(
