    Beautiful Image/Build Quality But 21:9 Needs Better Support. TLDR: Love it IQ is amazing (Coming from an Acer Predator which some would argue has one of the better IPS panels available) hoping 21:9 becomes more widely accepted in games. I came form 2 27″ monitors and def. prefer this. Wish USB Hub was on the side NOT the back but otherwise very happy with this purchase. Also wish this has at least a built in speaker but thats just a nitpick at this point. If you are looking at this monitor as a potential purchase, just do it and if you are on the fence about curved monitors hop off the fence and join in, I think it actually adds to immersion plus can save some space.Coming from a 27″ Acer Predator XB271HU IPS monitor I was worried because I always thought the predator had one of the best looking IPS panels I’ve seen and this is my first curved monitor.Image:For Gaming: Awesome Image Quality and color representation and contrast however be prepared for a lot of games not FULLY supporting 21:9. Most game menus and or cinematic’s will play with black boxes on the sides but this hopefully will change as this aspect ratio becomes more prevalent. Lastly even without overclocking this screen I have no ghosting.For Movies/Video: Again same issue as most content providers like Netflix, Amazon Prime etc. dont natively support 21:9 so you will have some black bars however you can use some browser addons such as Ultrawidify which will stretch the image to fit without cropping and to me it does not look bad..HDR: Meh Windows HDR sucks, some games suppport it but most of the time with a few exceptions its not worth it and looks better without it turned onBuild: I love the look and build quality looks solid but I gotta say the stand it comes with kinda sucks I thought the predator stand was much nicer. Up/Down Tilt Down (A little) Tilt Up (A Lot) it seems to tilt up a LOT further than it will tilt down which kind of sucks because it is sitting on a table higher than my but no biggie.Lastly and most importantly the USB hub on this doesn’t seem very well thought out at least to me. I preferred my predator where it had the USB hub inputs on the left side. This monitor they are located on the back right by the video inputs and its much more of a hassle to quickly plug in/out something.

    Overall Excellent. Overall a fantastic monitor for the purchase price of $800. I see the price fluctuating pretty frequently, so how much it costs you may be different.Pros:- 160hz for an ultrawide is excellent.- Works great with gsync.- Color quality is great.- Works great over HDMI and DisplayPort with windows.- Low motion blur.- No noticeable input lag.- The HDR color depth is awesome. Just disable the local dimming or it can get annoying.- Decent backlight bleed and IPS glow for an IPS panel. Definitely less bleed than the other 3 IPS panels that I’ve owned, and the backlight bleed is fairly evenly distributed.Neutral:- Managing an OSD (on screen display) with just the nipple is passable. As I switch inputs pretty often, my Alienware monitor let me set up a shortcut to double tap a dedicated button on the monitor to switch between HDMI and Displayport. This monitor requires you to always navigate the OSD menus (even though it doesn’t take too much to switch inputs).- The curve is subtle and is just “fine”. No complaints, nothing great about it either.Cons:- Does not work properly at 160hz at full resolution (1440p ultrawide) when connected to my Macbook over HDMI. The Macbook will only allow 50hz, meaning everything feels choppy. It’s a borderline-acceptable framerate for text-only workflows or just browsing the web.- Overall build quality is just “good”, which kinda sucks for an $800+ monitor. The plastic on the back feel flimsy.- Local dimming is TERRIBLE. I highly recommend disabling local dimming but enabling HDR for the extra color depth.Conslusion:An excellent monitor for productivity and gaming, with just a couple minor gripes that prevent it from being perfect IMO.

    1 week review using the UltraGear on Linux. I’m mostly writing this to inform other Linux users who use Nvidia GPUs my experience with the UltraGear, and not “hey look at me I’m a Linux user”.The Distro I use is KDE-Neon, RTX 2060 Super, version 470 drivers.For me, Gsync works out of the box. You will need to turn off your Compositor for Gsync to activate.I have not tested Freesync but I assume it would work since that’s up to the monitor.I was dreading the first time I turned the monitor, since I had read other reviews here talk about dead pixels, which happens on all monitors, and unfortunately when I turned it on I found 3 spots that had 4 or 5 dead pixels.Fortunately, I quickly fixed them and they’ve stayed on since. If you find dead pixels on your monitor, there is a trick you can do by lightly massaging, in a circular motion, the area of the dead pixel with the tip of your finger or thumb. You’ll want your monitor on while doing this and the easiest way to see the dead pixels is to full screen a very bright, white image.Back-light bleed is an unfortunate downside of IPS screens, and my screen does have some, but it’s extremely minimal and only in the corners, and the amount of bleed is very even on each corner which was very nice.I’ve read some reviews where people have showed their distaste with a Vignetting effect along the top of the screen. I personally have noticed absolutely no vignetting on my screen.The stand is very slim, but does take up a large footprint, and if your desk is cramped or shallow, you may have to make space or may find that it’s just too close to your face to be comfortable. My 20″ deep desk just isn’t enough space for a comfortable viewing distance. If your desk also has a built on shelf above where the monitor sits, you will want to measure the space so you’re not surprised when it doesn’t fit into it.The supplied DisplayPort Cable is plenty adequate for 3440×1440 at 160hz.Mine did not come with a Type A to Type B USB cable to use the USB pass-through ports on the monitor. I believe my box may have been opened before since one of the hand holes for the styrofoam was broken, and the USB cable may have been taken.Brightness is substantial, I’ve never seen another monitor this bright before. But that’s coming from someone who has been using 2 ASUS PB278Qs for the past 10 years.Since my screen has very minimal back-light bleed, the blacks are very dark, even for an IPS.The menu navigation is very straightforward and responsive. 8 different modes. The fake HDR mode is a gimmick, but does have very high contrast. The 160hz overclock setting works as intended. Gamer 1 is the setting I use at all times. There is a quick select outside of the menu to change modes.

    The monitor specs are quite clear and fortunately there are many good YouTube videos unboxing and demonstrating what it’s capable of doing so I don’t speak about them. I didn’t purchase this monitor for gaming even though I did played some high FPS and HDR games on it just to test it out. It does exactly what it says and that’s why I gave it five stars. The HDR capabilities are quite bold and practical. It works perfectly with windows 11 while the display is set to always HDR. The refresh rate works like a charm and the picture quality is close to fantastic which is why I use it (video editing & designing). The contrast is that high that it really bothers my eyes if I lock at the white screen display even though it’s only a HDR 400 certified.If you use the monitor to watch HDR streaming contract, be happy that HDR would be automatically picked by the streamers as the default. I bought a VESA desk mount but I didn’t see any use for that because the monitor has a very practical and pretty stand. For the settings out of the box, you might need to spend some time to get the monitor screen and other functionalities based on your preferences but it’s super initiative and easy with user friendly menus adjustable by one single small joystick located at the back side of the screen. This monitor is not the best of it’s class but for the price and such quality, it’s definitely worth buying even more so if you happen to buy it while it’s discounted (as I did, thx to Amazon). Delivery of the monitor was nice and fast as usual (someone knocked the door and handed to me after singneture). I haven’t checked the color accuracy because I was super happy with the outcome I set it up and compare to my reference monitor at work (Benq), the picture quality is superb (the Benq is a 4K monitor and almost two times more expensive).Would I recommend this monitor? Definitely yes, if you can afford it.

    You have to tweak this badboy, some panels come with a yellow veil that you need to remove via Nvidia control panel, I will put my settings on the photos as reference (not all panels are the same is all trial and error). That being said…This monitor is a real good deal with the new 600$ price. Colors are incredible, bright is great for an IPS, contrast is tolerable on bright rooms, bad on dark rooms (greyish blacks), the sharpness is impressive, coming from a 27″ QHD this one feels even sharper and more detailed, maybe because is less tall so the pixels are more compressed, who knows.Now the BIG DEAL about this monitor: RESPONSE TIME AND PIXEL REFRESH, this monitor is a league of it’s own, almost imperceptible motion blur (really, I CAN’T see it) and the input lag is very low, good for competitive games.now the CONS:* no Pip, no Pbp !! I mean, come on LG, 29 old ultrawide had that feature, why this ones cant ?* no speakers* poor contrast ratio, bad black handling on dark rooms* the stand is HUGE, plus the height doesn’t go too low, just mid height and very tall height.* it could had USB C or KVM for the premium price.* Needs calibration if you have the yellow tint vail (most monitor have it)Still, this is a great monitor, my next monitor will be an ultrawide OLED for sure, probably LG as well.PS: check my captures, those are my settings for perfect tone, removing the yellow tint and giving a warmish not too cold colors. You can play with it, or check RTINGS.com calibration for more references.

    I have the non IPS (VA) version. I got it on sale during Christmas sales, so it’s hard to beat this monitor for the price. I have not starting gaming on it yet, but good colors and contrast and great real estate. Does not seem to cause me any eye strain. No dead pixels. For a widescreen 1440p monitor and for the price I paid, I’m pretty happy with it.That said, there is a strange cutoff right at the edge of the bottom bezel. Unless you are looking at it straight on or beneath, the last ~2 rows of pixels are diminished. And since it is at the bottom of the screen and my eyes are always above the bottom edge, I notice it. It’s not something that bothers me really, but it’s there and it shouldn’t be.The speakers are fine for what they are. Bass tone drops off heavily below 110hz, which I would expect. Pretty good spacial stereo for built-in monitor speakers. It works fine for general use and meetings. If you need more you would want external speakers or a good headset.

    Major Upgrade from my Dell 34in Curved Monitor S3422DW. The monitor that I am used to and use as a benchmark is a monitor from my MSI63 Stealth gaming laptop. It offers quite a powerful display even though it came out in 2018. Since then I upgraded to the Dell 34in Curved Monitor S3422DW. That was a big leap from my gaming laptop so going back from the dell to my MSI display to this was like discovering fire.The LG UltraGear QHD 34-Inch Curved Gaming Monitor is a top-of-the-line option for gamers seeking a high-quality, immersive gaming experience. The 34-inch curved display provides a wide field of view, making it easy to take in all the action on the screen. Perfect for FPS or 3rd person hack and slash games like Sekiro. The QHD resolution ensures that the images are crisp and clear, with vibrant colors and deep blacks.The monitor’s fast refresh rate and low input lag make for smooth and responsive gameplay. Gamers will enjoy a seamless experience, with no lag or stuttering. The curved design of the monitor also helps to reduce eye strain during extended gaming sessions. This makes the monitor not only a great gaming monitor but also ideal for work, streaming and other multi-media consumption.The monitor also has a variety of convenient features, such as on-screen control and multiple gaming presets. These options allow for easy customization and optimization of your gaming experience. Gamers can tailor the settings to suit their preferences and game types. Overall, this is a great gaming monitor that offers excellent performance, a host of useful features, and an immersive curved design that makes it a standout choice.

    I bought an LG 34GP83A-B. It works as advertised (with the exception of the setup).I had a Dell 34″ UltraSharp wide-screen monitor that has been great for 5+ years. I needed a second wide-screen monitor. I chose this one based on the great price at the time I bought it and based on feedback from friends using the same brand.Pros: The picture quality is at least as good as the Dell I had, if not better. Very pleased with the picture quality. The monitor performance is great. I don’t use demanding gaming apps that would require me to take advantage of the overclocking to 160Hz. 144Hz is sufficient for me. I have not tried to use the screen splitting option yet since I have my own pre-existing app that manages it for me. I’ll follow up later and update this post after I use the split-screen option from LG.Pro/Con… The pro is it has cable management. It is on the back of the monitor stand if you want to use it. The con is it is too small and weak to support all the cables. I didn’t use it for my setup.Setup: I had it as a con, but changed it since the main issue was not the fault of the monitor or LG. The biggest aggravation was the setup. I have two monitors connected to this PC. A 27″ BenQ and this one (LG). When I first connected it, both monitors showed as separate monitors. The resolution on the LG defaulted to 1920×1080. I updated my drivers and rebooted. No change. This time my system literally saw both monitors as 1 monitor. Weird. I downloaded the latest driver for my Windows version from the LG website (34GP83A-B.AUS). Attempted to install it and received an error this was not an LG driver. Downloaded again to see if perhaps it was a file issue. Same error. Upgraded my graphics card driver (Nvidia GeForce 3090), rebooted, and the monitor worked. A PCI-to-PCI driver upgrade appeared to fix the issue. However, LG needs to fix its driver or provide a different one.An additional minor issue for me is the monitor stand. The base “feet” are a little flimsy and stretch out in front of the monitor in a “V” shape. Takes up to much desktop space. I am able to work around it, but would advise others to keep this in mind when planning your desk layout.Received a response: “The LG 34″ UltraGear Curved WQHD Nano IPS 1ms 144HZ HDR 400 Monitor with G-SYNC Compatibility, Model # 34GP83A-B is a Plug and Play Monitor. Plug and Play is a feature that allows you to add a device to your computer without having to reconfigure anything or install any manual drivers…^Ivan” — The comment is true. If my PCI-to-PCI adapter was already current, then the monitor would have worked as a plug-and-play. At the time, I didn’t know this was the issue initially and struggled with the LG driver for this monitor. My recommendation is still to resolve the LG drive incompatibility issue.2/11/2023Additional comments after some time using the monitor.Input Selection: I saw some complaints about the button-style controller that allows you to change monitor settings, including the input source. It did take a minute to get used to it, but it works fine for me, and have no issues with it.Work laptop: I use the DP cable for my personal PC and the HDMI with my work laptop. My work laptop (HP ZBook) has a port replicator that only uses DP connections. I use an HDMI hub to plug all my HDMI connections from my monitors with a DP connection back into the port replicator. This did not work with the LG monitor. Received the same odd errors I had above with my PC and, if I reboot, none of the screens (including the laptop would work). I bought a DP to HDMI converter, bypassed my HDMI hub, and plugged my LG monitor HDMI connection directly into the port replicator using the DP to HDMI converter. Everything works as normal now. The only minor issue is when my laptop goes to sleep and I wake it up, I have a 50/50 chance of the LG monitor not coming on. I disconnect the port replicator from my laptop and plug it back in. LG monitor wakes up. It’s a minor workaround. This does seem to coincide with other comments about sleep issues with the monitor. I hope this helps others who are trying to use this for work.I’m using Nvidia RTX Desktop Manager to configure split screens on my LG monitor without any issues.I plan on using this for a few months and then will update my post later. So far the monitor has been great!

It did take a minute to get used to it, but it works fine for me, and have no issues with it.Work laptop: I use the DP cable for my personal PC and the HDMI with my work laptop. My work laptop (HP ZBook) has a port replicator that only uses DP connections. I use an HDMI hub to plug all my HDMI connections from my monitors with a DP connection back into the port replicator. This did not work with the LG monitor. Received the same odd errors I had above with my PC and, if I reboot, none of the screens (including the laptop would work). I bought a DP to HDMI converter, bypassed my HDMI hub, and plugged my LG monitor HDMI connection directly into the port replicator using the DP to HDMI converter. Everything works as normal now. The only minor issue is when my laptop goes to sleep and I wake it up, I have a 50/50 chance of the LG monitor not coming on. I disconnect the port replicator from my laptop and plug it back in. LG monitor wakes up. It’s a minor workaround. This does seem to coincide with other comments about sleep issues with the monitor. I hope this helps others who are trying to use this for work.I’m using Nvidia RTX Desktop Manager to configure split screens on my LG monitor without any issues.I plan on using this for a few months and then will update my post later. So far the monitor has been great!

    Received my monitor on 2/10/23, it was sold by Amazon.com Services LLC and shipped from Amazon’s warehouse via Prime Shipping, not a 3rd party.Amazon has reviews for this monitor mixed in with one of a different model # so pay attention to what you’re reading. Also, there’s at least a dozen reviews here mentioning dead or stuck pixels, let me remind you that most of the time, people who receive a good working product do not take the time to write a review, but people who receive a bad product usually will. That will skew the written reviews of a product to make it appear bad.After I received this monitor, I set it up without even peeling the protective plastic off the trim, and ran Dead Pixel Check for probably a good half hour. I found no dead or stuck pixels anywhere. The much maligned “IPS Glow” or uneven backlight that people complain about is practically nonexistent on this panel. Yes you can see some, ever so slightly in the corners, but this is the 4th IPS display that I’ve bought over the years(I’m 53) and honestly it’s the best I’ve seen.Something else worth mentioning, this monitor has what may look to you like a screen protector that should be peeled off, don’t try doing that, it’s an anti-glare sheet put on from the factory to give the display a matt finish.If I end up having future problems with this monitor, be it dead/stuck pixels or backlight problems, I will update this review. So far though it’s the best non-OLED display I’ve seen.

    Phenomenal monitor. Having included speakers made the decision easy for me. And the speakers are sufficient for gaming in a small room. If your sitting a little ways away I would still want a set of secondary speakers but everything else is exactly how described or even better than you see.. very happy. Good screen for in between 1080 and 4k. If you are looking to upgrade but not for the price of a good 4k monitor this is a a great alternative. Everything is amazing but be ready you can’t hit the 120hz on a PS5 because 5he PS5 does not support display port input so under HDMI you can only achieve 60 hz and their are no adapters that go from display port to hdmi that can make a standard HDMI cord achieve 120hz. The only thing I wish I could change is that.

    What a leap for me with this monitor. I had a perfectly good 27″ monitor (ASUS ROG PB278Q), so I wasn’t expecting to see much of a difference with this upgrade, but I was wrong. I was seriously looking at OLED and mini-LED, but the technology isn’t quite there yet to justify the cost, especially as a multi-purpose monitor. I heavily researched monitors before pulling the trigger on this one and it was easily the best bang for my buck. There is an ongoing debate about 34″ 1440p vs. 32″ 4k, but I’ll never go back to 16:9 and 4k seems excessive in my opinion.Ultra-wide is better than I expected, not only for immersion in games, but also productivity. I have limited space on my desk at home for two monitors and even if I did, it would be awkward for gaming. This monitor solves that problem and the unconventional 21:9 resolution works in most situations perfectly. The curve is subtle, but needed at this size (if you’re considering a flat panel like the Gigabyte ones). As far as picture quality goes, I read that the blacks look grey and the HDR is terrible, but it looks amazing to me. Even HDR400 makes a huge difference by making the colours look more natural and less harsh on the eyes. Another concern from my research was quality control for this version compared to the unnecessarily more expensive 34GN850-B. Many people complained about dead pixels and having to return countless monitors to Amazon. Maybe I won the “panel lottery” as people describe it, but I meticulously scanned the monitor for imperfections and I haven’t seen any issues other than IPS glow, which is a known drawback of this panel type in general. One minor gripe would be monitor wobble while typing. I’m sure this could easily be fixed with a VESA arm attachment instead of the pedestal that comes with it. Other than that, this monitor more than meets my expectations.I don’t want to have to change my whole lifestyle and live in dark mode to accommodate the inevitable burn-in that OLED panels are prone to, and local dimming with mini-LED panels seems far too rudimentary for the exorbitant cost. This monitor hits the sweet spot and I’m sure it will serve me well for years to come.

    Immersive Gaming Experience. The LG UltraGear QHD 34-Inch Curved Gaming Monitor has proven to be an exceptional addition to my gaming setup, offering a truly immersive experience that elevates my gameplay to new heights.The ultra-wide WQHD resolution with a 21:9 aspect ratio is a game-changer, providing a vast field of view that allows me to see more on-screen. This curved monitor pulls me right into the heart of the action, making every gaming session feel more engaging and thrilling.One of the standout features of this monitor is its overclocked 160Hz refresh rate with 1-millisecond Motion Blur Reduction (MBR). This combination delivers incredibly smooth visuals and significantly reduces blur and ghosting, ensuring that I can respond to opponents with lightning-fast precision.The VESA DisplayHDR 400 high dynamic range compatibility and 99% sRGB color accuracy breathe life into virtual worlds, enhancing textures, character movements, and lighting with stunningly accurate colors. However, I did notice that sometimes the colors appeared a bit off, which may require some calibration adjustments on my end.The NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync Premium technologies work seamlessly with compatible video cards to virtually eliminate screen tearing and minimize stutter, resulting in a fluid gaming experience. These features contribute to a more enjoyable and responsive gameplay, particularly in high-resolution and fast-paced games.The Dynamic Action Sync is a useful addition, reducing input lag and helping me respond quickly to on-screen action. Additionally, the Black Stabilizer enhances visibility in darker scenes, making it easier to spot enemies lurking in the shadows. The Crosshair feature also aids my accuracy during intense firefights.Despite the monitor’s outstanding performance, I encountered an issue with the initial unit I received, as it arrived broken. However, Amazon’s excellent customer service allowed me to return it for a full refund. Subsequently, I purchased this monitor brand new from another outlet, and I’m delighted to say that the new unit is performing flawlessly.In conclusion, the LG UltraGear QHD 34-Inch Curved Gaming Monitor is a top-notch choice for gamers seeking an immersive and responsive gaming experience. While I had a slight hiccup with the initial unit, the monitor’s impressive features and capabilities more than make up for it. I highly recommend this monitor to fellow gaming enthusiasts looking to elevate their gaming sessions to a whole new level.

    LG Ultragear 49″ Monitor. Attn Reader: I am a PC gamer, not a highly skilled user. When I purchased this monitor there was literally only one real review and like 10 false (wrong product/fake) ones, so I am writing this review to give an honest assessment of this very expensive monitor from a casual user with a primary interest in entertainment value.Buyer Beware! You will find bugs with these things. Windows will have issues, many older games will have serious issues or not work at all with these monitors. You can typically resize things to fit the screen better, but that can be a nuisance and sometimes doesn’t help.That having been said, I will NEVER GO BACK to a normal sized monitor again. Not because this beast cost me an arm and a leg, but because it is absolutely magnificent!If you buy one of these, especially if you are a gamer; you will not only see the difference, but you will feel it…This monitor is the future, but it is also a bit ahead of the curve. It’s almost as if the world isn’t quite ready to take the next step into Ultrawide. But let me tell you friends, it’s still worth every penny.To put it simply, for any folks like me who only care about how awesome it is (without nerding out on technical stuff); it will make your game feel like a movie, that you are inside of…This kind of screen is exceptional for any first-person perspective game. I have also had some major success with games that naturally benefit from wide angles, like strategy games, or just anything with wide open spaces. The way the screen wraps around your vision can and WILL make you feel like you are right there in the action. Immersion is by far Super Ultrawide’s strongest selling point.To put it technically, the 1000r curve and the 240hz refresh rate, the extra couple inches above regular Ultrawide and that solid LG construction make this a very strong purchase, in my humble opinion.The VA screen and lack of HDR are weak points for visuals, but I have yet to feel any real loss from not having them.My final verdict: if you can afford it, I feel that for any serious PC gamer, this is a must have. This is a crazy expensive purchase, but one you can be proud of.

    At full price, totally worth it. On sale, it’s a steal. I am used to having between 3 and 6 1080p monitors to create a curved experience while having usable screen real estate. The problem I had was the monitor bezels and the fact I was trying to make flat panels appear to curve.I saw this on sale for some $500 off and bought it. I was like a kid waiting for Santa and when it arrived, I couldn’t wait to get it hooked up and game!It was too large for my desk. Nothing else would fit!No worries, I have another desk, glass, that will more than accommodate this large monitor.With anything, there are pros and cons, so lets get to it.Pros:The adjustable height stand is a must-have. Once you set it’s height, it stays.The assembly was easy yet frightening at the same time. The base was a sinch to assemble.Virtually no glare at allThe curve allows for a nice natural turn of the head while still allowing great peripheral visuals while looking at the center.The refresh rate is perfect. While there are higher refresh rate monitors out there, this is the largest monitor I’ve had that doesn’t make me sick to my stomach.Freesync Pro works. That’s it. It works for G-Sync on Nvidia cards as well as AMD’s Freesync. This is a must-have as it prevents any screen tearing (where the motion on the screen changes quickly, it splits the image horizontally) without the performance hit that VSync creates.Its beautifully designed.Picture in Picture! YES!! You can hook up a Fire stick and a computer and watch a football game while playing a video game. More on my experience with this in a minute.ConsIt is huge when it comes to width. Make sure you have the space, with some to spare, before purchasing.Running games at high settings and the monitor at its standard resolution requires a beefy graphics card.It’s somewhat harrowing to put the monitor on the stand by yourself. Get a second person. Due to the curve, I didn’t even attempt to lay the monitor face down and attach the base.The backlighting should be brighter. Otherwise, what’s the point?While it has DTS:X Headphone support, there are no speakers. I’d be happy with the bare minimum for system sounds, but it does pass the DTS:X Headphone sound from the computer through the monitor to a headphone jack just to the left of the power/menu button.I’m not happy with the menus not having an exit option. You have to wait for the menu to time out and close.Now, back to the Picture in Picture statement. I spent $3,000 on a Samsung Ark 55″ gaming monitor. Weighing in at 90 lbs, I got the beast unboxed and everything plugged in. It looked fantastic. The problem with the Gen 1 version is no Picture in Picture; in fact, you cannot split the screen or anything you would expect. So, back to the store it went. Now, for $2,000, you can buy the 2nd gen Ark and get all four inputs on screen at once, but I just don’t think it’s worth it. If you need to rotate that big monitor or need four inputs on screen, go for it, but for me, I love this LG at a 32:9 aspect ratio!

    So far, really really good. I got away from ultrawides for awhile. Lemme say it’s good to be back. I went from a 34″ ultrawide to a 39″ 16.9, to a 27″ 340hz, to a 32″ 165hz, back to this LG 34″ ultrawide. And I’m glad I did. I’ve only been able to use it a few times since I received it. But so far I remember why I liked ultrawides and especially this one. I read a bit skeptical about only have a144hz monitor but all fears melted away after playing Helldivers 2 last night for hours. I haven’t even messed with tuning it yet and I’m in love. Great monitor, looks great, feels great, would definitely recommend it for purchase for anyone that asks. I’m sure their are better monitors, but for the price and for my needs is a perfect fit.

    Absolutely spectacular. First I bought a “used-like new” monitor from an “Amazon seller” (not Amazon, but through Amazon). That seller just shipped me a broken monitor than someone else returned and they didn’t even open the box and remove the previous buyer’s return slip. Not Amazon’s fault as this was an “Amazon registered seller” and not Amazon. However, Amazon took responsibility and made it right. THANK YOU, AMAZON!The replacement is amazing. It’s bright, vivid colors, wide and beautiful. I’ll never go back to a flat monitor. If you game or are in front of the computer a lot you will definitely appreciate this monitor. Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, it’s worth it.
