Is there a way to get an HDMI input?
I'm considering buying one of these primarily to use with a 2019 MacBook Pro. I'd also like to occasionally use it with a 4K Apple TV and an older laptop that has an HDMI output. Is there a cable or adapter I can get to allow this monitor to accept a standard HDMI input? Will it work with both 4K and 1K devices?

How do you get the light sensor to work?
The screen brightness does not adjust based on the light sensor. I have it side by side with the iMac monitor and only the built in iMac monitor is adjusting the brightness.

Will this work at 4k with the Radeon 5700 XT which has USB-C output?
I'm looking for an EGPU solution that will work with this monitor since it only has Thunderbolt input. The Radeon 5700 XT has USB C output and it looks like the LG 5K will work with USB C output (although only at 4k) so theoretically it might work. Can anyone actually confirm that the 5700 XT works with this monitor? The only other EGPU option was the BlackMagic Pro but that was discontinued when Radeon discontinued the Vega 56.

USB speed when using thunderbolt 3
Since it is an active thunderbolt cable and not supports usb 3.0, is that means if I connect a drive using one of the usb port, I only get usb 2.0 speed?

Can you connect wired headphones or external speakers to the monitor? It doesn't appear to have a 3.5mm jack connection anywhere.
I've bought a USB-C to 3.5mm jack adapter, but I don't seem to be getting any output through the external speakers I've connected. Audio keeps coming out of the monitor only
Use for Windows Laptop (as well as MacBook Pro)
Can I use this an extended desktop for my Dell laptop with has USB-C (but not Thunderbolt)? And will I get the 5k resolution with this connection? I would like to invest in this monitor for use with my personal Macbook Pro, but would also like to be able to use it (separately) with my work Dell Latitude Laptop for the rare days when I work from home (even if I can't utilise the full resolution when connected to my work laptop).
