Hard to argue that these are expensive, but the top spec Dell monitors are very good and USB-C support with Daisy Chaining automatically puts about £150 onto the price of a monitor because it's business oriented feature. Would have liked Dell monitors for my setup but I got 2 MSI 1440p 165Hz with USB-C (but no Daisy Chaining) for about the price of one Dell. For the money I can't argue but they aren't as nice as the equivalent Dell.
Not all 1440p monitors are created equal.
Way overpriced for 1440p monitors in the first place, no wonder they are offering massive discounts. The difficulty of getting the discount = cold
It’s a macOS limitation. People have been complaining about it for at least 6 years but Apple don’t seem to care. Something else to consider is that if daisy chaining, you’ll only get USB 3.0 speed on the monitor’s USB ports if you have this year’s top spec 13” MacBook Pro. That’s the only model Apple sell with an Ice Lake CPU, which you need for two QHD screens plus USB 3.0. If you have anything else, you’ll be crawling along at USB 2.0 speeds...
Exactly. Frankly all “advanced” uses of USB-C are a compatibility mess across the board and this is just no different. Here’s to hoping an equivalent Ultrawide will come down in price so it’s a worthwhile upgrade from my current setup.
