So far I'm very happy with it. From some angles my desk looks ridiculous, but sitting down it just seems obvious. I've worked with two 24" 16:10 displays along with the laptop for a few years (essentially three screens), so this is just combining those two monitors, and it's great.
A big debate for me on this purchase was whether to go with a 34" ultrawide and save $500-600. By my calculations I would have lost 3" in each direction with the 34", and having done a little dev work on the display so far, I think it was the right call to go with the bigger display. I figure I'll probably have this for 5-10 years, so it'll amortize.
One gotcha is that I have two 3-5 yr/old MacBook Pros with HDMI 1 ports. HDMI 1 won't drive this display at it's full resolution. So I needed a Mini Displayport to Displayport cable for one of the machines, and then an ACTIVE Mini Displayport to HDMI 2 adaptor. The "active" is the key here, as it needs to be able to drive 3840x1600@60hz, which is essentially 4K(3840x2000)@60hz. A lot of adapters will do 4K@30hz, so make sure you get the right one. The only straight up cable like that was $40, so I got a shorty male miniDP to female HDMI 2 for $17 and attached it to the HDMI cable included with the monitor.
Almost all other ultrawide monitors that have USB-C connectivity (besides the LG UltraFine) only supply a maximum of 60W of upstream power. Since a 15" MacBook Pro takes 85 watts to charge, you can end up relying on your battery to make up for the difference. The Dell U3818DW provides 100W of upstream power!
Now onto the display itself...
This thing is absolutely amazing when it comes to picture quality and text readability. I purchased an LG 34UC79G and hated using it for anything that required staring at text for any length of time. The Dell U3818DW runs at 3840 x 1600 (~111 PPI) and has roughly 40% more pixels than my old LG 34UC79G, which runs at 2560 x 1080 (~82 PPI). I can run Excel spreadsheets all day long on the Dell and my eyes don't feel fatigued, whereas the LG almost instantly gave me a headache. I occasionally play some Call of Duty and have to say it is pretty impressive on this monitor. Although it only has a 5ms response time and 60Hz refresh rate, it suits my needs for the small amount of gaming I use it for.
This thing is built like a tank! It arrived via UPS double-boxed with many "heavy" stickers slapped on it. The manufacturer's box is extremely thick with plenty of packaging to keep it safe during transport. The monitor alone weights about 27 lbs and feels very sturdy using the supplied stand. It can be VESA mounted if you want to keep the space underneath the monitor clear (which I may eventually do).

The built-in speakers are decent but are definitely not going to give you the low-range thump that you'd get with an external set of computer speakers.
Overall, this monitor is everything I have been looking for to complement my 2017 15" MacBook Pro with a single-cable solution. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but you will be very happy once you see it in person.
UPDATE: After using this monitor for a few weeks, I had to take off one star for the following reasons:
1) No display manager software for Mac. This means you’re limited to snapping two windows side-by-side. If you want more windows, you have to manually resize and arrange them.
2) Built-in monitor speakers cannot be controlled by the keyboard volume controls. Again, a limitation due to lack of Mac software/driver.
3) Changing inputs is a bit cumbersome. The auto detect can get annoying and manual input selection requires too many button presses.
Although these are minor complaints, it’s not a lot to ask for Mac drivers & software when it’s a $1,000+ computer monitor with USB-C support.
CONS: The panel used for this monitor has issues with ghosting and banding. I suspect it's due to the 8bit + FRC instead of being true 10bit.
Banding: If there is a gradient that moves onscreen, you can see banding. It's very noticeable when watching videos.
Ghosting: Leave the monitor at 8ms response time. If you turn on the "Fast" 5ms response time, you see bad ghosting.
If you want to be more productive while coding or something, the extra real estate is great. However I can't recommend this for multimedia at all.
I'm hoping for a firmware fix. Otherwise stick with the smaller 34-inch ultrawides that don't have these problems.
A couple things to note:
* There are speakers built in, but you can't control the volume natively through macOS; you have to use the monitor buttons to control the volume.
* The single cable can't drive the display+audio+whatever and still allow the USB3 ports to operate at full speed, so they get downgraded to USB2 speeds. I'm pretty sure this is the case for every monitor besides the 27" LG 5K. Only way around it is with a Thunderbolt3 dock (like Elgato).
This monitor is the envy of the office. It's so big, I've been asked if I'm compensating for something.
Granted, I didn't pay for the monitor myself, but I think this is the best single monitor for use with the new MacBook Pro laptops. You definitely pay for the extra size and resolution though.
