Will I be able to control all of the monitor’s settings from my macOS settings?

With all the options here, yes you will. Some are Plug and Play, while others such as the ZenScreen will require the installation of a widget, but the best thing about compatible monitors is the level of fine-tuning you can do without ever touching your screen’s controls.

Our Verdict

The Ultrafine 4K from LG just about gets our vote here, and it mainly comes down to the price point that makes it a steal for those specs. It may be that you want or even need a 5k or ultrawide option and that’s fine, those covered here will serve you well, at an increased cost. But we are looking for the best monitor for the Mac Mini, so have made the assumption that budget at least does mean something to you.

The fact you can pick up a couple of these for the cost of one of the 5K model highlights its great value. Definitely a monitor worth picking up, it’s just a shame it’s a bit of a standard looker in terms of design.
