    • Telling people to like a d subscribe at the start is stupid. People know what to do, and your extra push for subs is lazy

    • Hi, I have a monitor with a USB C port from LG 21.5 4k and my Mac Mini 2014 and I can not run Monitor because it’s on the USB C port, is there a solution to run Monitor?

    • +Kepano 808HI It works for me, that’s why I do it. I don’t think it’s lazy at all, I spent a gang of time making this video.

    • I thought it was pretty low key, but I guess I see what you mean. To be fair, most of these devices have some sort of branding, though.

  1. It would be very helpful if you’d mention the prices in the description! Thanks for the great content!

  2. Can you turn that lg 5k monitor upside down?
    It just looks so ugly with the top bezel being bigger than the bottom and triggers my ocd

  3. I really don’t have any brand new laptops, and so that means that I don’t have any reason to be watching this video. My main laptop is a 2013 Toshiba C-55-A, and I wish it had USB-C because if I would be able to plug in an external GPU, I would be able to edit my YouTube videos easier, and also, game a lot better!

  4. EXCELLENT video! Yes. It’s about time Thunderbolt has gotten more widely accepted. Maybe Apple lowered the licensing costs for having it on devices? That can be a big hurdle with some companies.

    I largely agree with your selections. I do have some suggestions though for next time:

    * 4K monitors. Yes, 5K is awesome. But it’s also pricier. And for most, really not necessary or even useful. For half the price, you can get a seriously great 4K monitor. Or for even the same price of 5K, have a 4K monitor that has many more options and performance to it than the 5K.

    * 16:9 monitor standard. Thank you for including the 16:9 LG monitor. At first, I thought the ultra-wide 5K Samsung was going to be it for me. But after seeing it in the store, I knew, as a photographer, the screen size wasn’t tall enough for my needs. Yes, you get high resolution. But you can’t substitute size for resolution in many cases. I’d rather have a 32″ 16:9 4K monitor with a billion colors and huge color gamut range and accuracy than a 27″ 5K ulta-wide with 80% of that performance… And for less money…

    Again, thank you for the excellent video. I’m sure selections weren’t easy. Happy New Year!

    • You make good points. I actually think 4K displays are enough, as I prefer their asset size over 5K displays, but I realize I’m in the minority. My eyes aren’t as good as they used to be, so I prefer 1920×1080 HiDPI mode over 2560×1440 HiDPI.

    • +9to5Mac Thanks for keeping it real… I have a 24″ 1920×1080 monitor pro-grade monitor that I’ve used for about 5 years. It’s a fantastic monitor and I could easily do my photography work on it. Especially since I can rotate it to do portrait-oriented work. I rarely do that but it makes a real difference sometimes.

      But 4K and beyond is future proofing. The performance you get today for the price I paid for my monitor 5 years ago is far superior in every regard. Love that about technology. 😛
