Default Best Mac Mini External 32" Display?

Anyone have a recommendation on the best 32" 4k display for use with a Mac Mini and Pro Tools?

There are so many out there and everyone has an opinion. LG, ASUS, BENQ, Samsung? I see love/hate reviews on practically all of them.

Would love some guidance on suggestions for what has worked really well with audio and pro tools in a small professional studio.

Again, best for Mac use that can utilize the 4K graphics and high end options on a new mac mini.

I bought an LG 32UL950-W and I haven't looked back. If only Pro Tools fully supported 4k.., but it works well.

I have the LG 32UL99. Similar spec and haven’t looked back either.

I do find the text in Pro Tools (especially the clip and track lists) too small so I run at a slightly lower resolution than 4k.

I also have the entry level LG Electronics 32UN500. Out of the box the colour calibration was way off but with some tweaking it’s fine and is almost as sharp as the high end model.
