Beautiful Monitor, but Macbook users beware7/24/2018 7:54:33 AM

Pros: - great price and specs - entire monitor frame is aesthetically pleasing to look at

Cons: -Unfortunately Apple decided to break ultrawide support for many monitors with their Sierra update. This monitor is one of the affected monitors. What will happen, is that your computer won't recognize the 3440 x 1440p as a valid resolution option for this external monitor. HOWEVER there is a fix. I was able to get this fixed using the SwitchResX custom resolution software that can be found online. I will say, the process that I had to take to even get that figured out was incredibly frustrating and time consuming. I have no idea if this was Apple's fault or if Acer needs to update their monitor software, but Macbook buyers beware. You can get it to work, it just takes a little bit of effort.
