I think you have to live with 1080p for external monitor to the MacBook12. We're here to help, and this is the easiest way for us to do that. Youtube videos played well in the player, but going full screen on 2560x1440 resulted in some slight distortion when there were quick movements in the video. Don't they know this for Linux neither? I'll be back if the situation improves. The monitor is native 3840x2160 so it's somewhat disappointing of course. I am on a 2016 M5 with Sierra 10. The brightness and volume control do not work on the keyboard on from the MacBook is the issue that was reported here in the forum.
I've a Dell P2416D monitor connected. What are the future developments of Dell in this area? The U3417W seems to be a slightly newer design with a greater curvature. This really needs to work for me. If you are running a beta or developer preview, head over to. With this combination, I can run 1920x1080 60Hz; but only on the DisplayPort. Final Verdict I really like this monitor! It works well although in retrospect I'm not sure i'd buy it again. It just works and its built like a tank and shipped that way too.
I have a hootoo ht-uc001 that I'm using essentially as a dock. Anyone shed some light on this? Readers attempting to help you deserve thank-you's and upvotes! Will there soon come a new widescreen maybe with 4k? Rated 5 out of 5 by Lee from Perfect for multi-computer multi-screen replacement Sitting in front of this is like looking out the windshield in your car from the drivers seat. Just to complete the thread and iterate the agony. If I was gaming and only using a single computer source, Id buy something else suited for that purpose. On the Mac System Preferences Network panel, the 'Thunderbolt Bridge' is saying not connected; the link and activity lights of the ethernet port are lite left with orange and right with blinking yellow.
Is it because Apple does not want Dell and our monitor manufacturers to see the inner workings of their proprietary hardware and software which would be required to fix issue? Maybe that won't prove to be a concern. Fixing problems over the internet is incredibly difficult! They seem to be the first real 'dock' to the market although I didn't buy because early reviews seemed less than stellar. Multitask with Ease Now you have the screen space, the tools, and the features you need to do everything efficiently. I have a few questions that I hope you can help me out with: 1. Overall though, it is a decent ultrawide monitor, great if you are on a tight budget. The colors are bright and the monitor is razor sharp with a very nice stand that has decent cable management. I'll try also with some other monitors around the office.
For instance, the software starts at boot-up and defaults to split screen, vertical line in the middle, and there is no way to change this. More importantly, one user reported that Nightshift Mode would not work. This is not a gaming monitor though. People come here for help, so please don't shove them right back out the door. Unfortunately, there is no store nearby with the monitors on display, so I have no way to try them. My plan would be to buy a mac keyboard that I either connect to the monitor or to my MacBook depending on what works best but if possible connecting it to the screen would be nicer so that I only need to connect the MacBook to the monitor every time. Also, Night Shift is not compatible with this monitor.
It also has an optional black frame insertion feature that can reduce persistence blur, which is great. I was able to change to 2560c1440 low resolution , with refresh rate of 60 Hertz. Information on the new strain of larger UltraSharp monitors are still rare. Rudeness will not be tolerated! Now I got myself a Dell U2715H, which is native 2560x1440. Forward and represent their passion to Dell's product and sales groups. If you have questions about your membership or products you've purchased at Costco, please visit the membership counter at your local Costco or.
Other than the above, everything else is great. Charged my mac and also drives the monitor. The stand has a great tilt range and good height adjustment, and it can swivel, which is great. An additinal Clover patch maps my Apple keyboard's function keys accordingly, but I don't think there's nice way to do this on a genuine Mac. I have updated to the latest monitor firmware and Dell drivers on my Windows 10 laptop. This fee will be quoted at checkout. With fully up-to-date firmware, the dock works very well for my setup.
Follow up after receiving answers! Any of these computer-specific departments didn't want to answer dock questions until they knew what computer i was using, and immediately upon hearing I wasn't using one of their computers they wanted to pass the buck to another department. I am using this monitor with 2016 touch bar macbook pro. I keep a small 10-years old Dell monitor under my desk exactly for those situations. Please choose your shipping method at checkout. Autodetect works well when using the whole screen, but you can also use picture-by-picture to display content without bezel side by side when necessary. Even though I don't expect them to support the macbook, I figure I can't have been the first person to try this and there has to be someone at dell that knows if the two products are compatible or not.
Which is why it makes sense to ask the other Apple users what their troubleshooting thoughts are. It's physically large and a bit bulky, but it's also surprisingly light, so that's not even an issue. I have taped over it to resolve that. I tried calling support just to see if they could give me an 'official' answer on macbook compatibility. The two display can only mirror each other.
Apologies for missing your last reply! All recognized the drives attached in about 2 - 3 seconds. After posting this, I wasn't able to get a good answer from dell sales as to if it was compatible with the new macbook. The secret - don't use DisplayPort, as said it can only do 1920x1080 at 60hz or native at 30hz which is totally unusable, you'll get a headache sooner or later. I wiped that beta disk and the system appears to be working correctly with the Cinema display. But my personal account on High Sierra blitzed out. I would really appreciate if Dell would put some effort to check out compability for a potential customer.
