LG 34UC98 review

 

LG's ultrawide 34UC98 monitor adds FreeSync to attract gamers, but its price is too steep.

If you’re looking to spend $1,000 or more on a monitor, reaching for an ultrawide shouldn’t be a tough decision, but which one you choose might be. Samsung, LG, and Dell all have solid offerings, and the only factors that set them apart are price and...

LG 34UM95 review

 

The LG 34UM95 makes a powerful first impression, but its average image quality and $899 MSRP make it difficult to recommend.

The new LG 34UM95 is priced like a flagship, but our tests show that performance doesn’t measure up with the MSRP. Aside from resolution, this display comes up short of its predecessor in every other area, as well as less expensive 16:9 displays. The...

LG 34UC98-W

 

The 34-inch LG 34UC98-W is an attractive curved-screen monitor that offers AMD's FreeSync anti-tearing technology, a solid feature set, and very good gaming performance.

Sleek design. Generous feature set. AMD FreeSync enabled. Excellent gaming performance. Lots of advanced and gamer-friendly settings.

Expensive. Slightly skewed color accuracy. Stingy warranty.

Conclusion With the LG 34UC98-W, you get solid gaming performance and a sharp, highly detailed picture on a spacious 34-inch, widescreen panel. Its 1,900R curvature ratio puts you a bit closer to the action than other curved big-screen monitors that...

LG 34UM95

 

The LG 34UM95 is a beautifully crafted and very expensive 34-inch ultra-wide Quad-HD monitor that lets you split its massive screen into four custom-sized sections. I/O ports are plentiful, and viewing angles are wide, but this monitor's color accuracy...

Huge screen. Gorgeous design. Lots of ports.

Expensive. Middling color accuracy and gray-scale performance. Tilt-only stand.

Conclusion If you're looking to replace a two- or three-monitor configuration with a single screen, the LG 34UM95 is one of the largest ultra-wide monitors around. Its 4-Screen Split utility makes it easy to customize up to four separate viewing...

LG 34UM95 Monitor Review

 

21:9 monitors have done a good job of filling a couple niche positions in the marketplace. For someone that wants a single display to watch movies and use with the PC, the aspect ratio can work well. With many games, the wider field-of-view enhances...

LG 34UM95 review

 

The first Thunderbolt 2-equipped 21:9 display is a cinematic sight to behold

Tall 21:9 ; 100% sRGB ; Attractive design ; Port selection ; Low input lag

Expensive ; No adjustable height ; Speakers lack bass

The 34UM95 finally does 21:9 justice, featuring a huge working area free of scaling issues, low input lag and high colour accuracy wrapped up in an attractive design. It's not the cheapest of its kind, but it goes some way to justifying the cost.

LG 34UM95 widescreen display review

 

Most PC monitors and Windows laptops are now available only in a 16:9 widescreen ratio – great for watching television that's almost exclusively shot in this shape. But these stretched screens are arguably less good for production work, where extra...

It's the subjective experience of such a super-wide panel that should help to sell this panoramic monitor to anyone who gets a chance to try it. If you're used to using two or more displays anyway, the LG 34UM95 gives an even better effect from a...

LG 34UC98 34-inch Curved FreeSync Monitor Review

 

Today we're checking out LG's latest curved gaming monitor: the 34UC98. It's an IPS screen with 3440x1440 pixels, FreeSync, a 75Hz max refresh rate and MaxxAudio-tuned speakers.

FreeSync • No calibration necessary • Super-accurate • 1900R curve for immersive gameplay

Middling contrast • Small 55-75Hz FreeSync range • Merely average input lag • Expensive

Even though the prices of curved monitors are still $1000 and up, we like the category enough to keep covering it. And obviously people are buying them or we wouldn't see new models continue to appear. Like it or not, the curve seems here to stay and...
