Curved displays have become all the rage lately, and LG has stepped into the rounded ring with the 34" 34UC97-S UltraWide QHD Curved Monitor. Get ready for a futuristic all-encompassing viewing experience, as this curved IPS display allows you to see your movies, photos, and documents in an immersive environment without sacrificing crystal-clear graphics. With its 21:9 aspect ratio, you have far more screen real estate to play with, so you can edit documents, view photos, and even watch a movie all at the same time, in stunning QHD 3440 x 1440 resolution.

The LG 34UC97 supports Dual Link-Up functionality, allowing you to connect two separate devices to the monitor while maintaining a 1:1 ratio, effectively dividing the screen in two. This unique feature lets you stream content from two different devices simultaneously, allowing you to watch videos or play games on half of the screen while working on documents or putting together a spreadsheet on the other half of the screen.

Integrated IPS (in-plane-switching) display technology ensures the curved display can be viewed from a 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angle. This IPS display also features more than 99% coverage of the sRGB color space, providing the same colors on the display as you see in real life. To complete the multimedia experience, LG has added dual 7-watt stereo speakers featuring MaxxAudio technology, which helps provide deeper bass and clearer highs.

Connectivity is crucial when deciding which monitor to purchase, and the LG 34UC97 goes above and beyond with Thunderbolt 2 connectivity, allowing up to 20 Gbps bi-directional transfer speeds. The dual Thunderbolt ports also allow for daisy-chaining up to six Thunderbolt-compatible devices for flexibility in your desktop setup. In addition to Thunderbolt 2 connectivity, you will also find two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, two USB 3.0 downstream ports, and one USB upstream port.
