Get the NEC EA244UHD at B&H Photo.

NOTE: certain 4K displays require special configuration, see the Apple tech note.

The NEC EA244UHD was connected to the late 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina display using a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable and the supplied USB3 uplink cable. Immediate 60 Hz operation at 3840 X 2160 resolution required no configuration at all—it just worked automatically. The image appeared immediately with the menu bar on the main screen, no configuration needed other than the usual dual-display decision on how to place the laptop’s built-in screen on the extended OS X desktop.

A wired mouse was plugged into one of its USB3 ports and this also worked perfectly.

Like the Dell UP2414Q there are occasional sleep/wake issues with dual screen setups, easily resolved in the worst case by powering off/on the display (usually not an issue but sometimes). This seem to be a lingering OS X Mavericks bug, since both brands have similar sporadic wake-up behavior.
