So as I mentioned earlier i have gone through 5 displays looking for one that will work with my MB Pro touch bar USBc
I think apple screwed things royally on this interface but that is another topic.
for now I finally got my new display - I am enjoying it so far..

1 Cord!!! USB C - drives and charges the laptop then i have the back of the display going USB A to my USB3 hub.. but i had to down Hz the display to 30 instead of 60 to get it 4K and USB3.. but who cares.. it works and well..

only negative - sound is manually controlled by either the buttons on the display or via software in youtube or other various players. - whatever.. i can live with that.

i did purchase a logitech webcam c 920 pro - they work well together. but note : if your sound / voices sound like chimpmunks - go to utilities and audio midi - select the camera and change it from 16000 to 32000 hz for sound in put lol

Maybe try using SwitchRes (http://www.madrau.com/index.html) to see if you can get 4K @ 60Hz.

i switched back to 60hz 4k - my USB is now 2.0 - but really all that is on usb is my webcam and bar code scanner and time machine - no biggy..
