I’d only need the one port, and don’t game so not sure 60hz would be an issue.Sorry didn't see the model in your post
For me it didn't tick as many boxes as the Samsung.
Only one DP port (I am using two)
60Hz - max refresh rate was a killer for me
Speakers are not that great
HDR mode is not as good
Thought I had read reviews to say the panel wasn't as good as others

Will take a look at some reviews, it’s obviously quite a bit more to spend than the others for some built in speakers
The only thing I’d check before going ultrawide is the resolution. If you’re coming from a 4K/5K iMac screen or display, you might be surprised at the relative drop in resolution depending which model you go for.
I've never understood some of the Mac scaled resolutions on their desktops or laptops in recent times.Yes, all the UW recommendations so far have been for 5120x1440 which ok isn't quite as sharp as a 4K monitor. I certainly would not go for the 3840x1080 as that is much more noticeable and you tell when you drop a game resolution to that.
I have an LG 4K Ultrafine "Mac" monitor next to it and yes its nice but I prefer the HDR our of the monitor and the added screen real estate. By default the Mac scales on the 4K so its like 1920x1080 in terms of normal real estate.
I’m still holding on waiting for a new M1 iMac to be announced, but have today also been looking at 4K 27/28” monitors as I’m not sure I could get used to the lower res of an ultrawide either.The ultra wide has gone unfortunately, I just couldn't get used to the resolution. I've kept the mount/arm though as it really is a great piece of kit and there's now an iMac Pro hanging off it which was the only intel-based Mac I've tried over the last 6 weeks or so which is utterly silent when pushing all the cores. The VMs I need to run are only available for Intel, otherwise I'd be waiting out for a new M-based iMac too.
