    LG 34UC97 reviews

    34UC97-S 34" UltraWide QHD Curved LED Backlit LCD Monitor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke in 2 weeks, square trade warranty won't cover The picture on this monitor is pretty nice. There is a tiny bit of blurring near the extreme edges of the screen. Almost a 3D effect, probably caused by the curvature. The stand on this monitor is cheap and poorly balanced. My monitor tipped forward while I was trying to plug a cable in, and the screen cracked. Fortunately I purchased the expensive 2 year square trade warranty... right? No. The square trade warranty does not cover accidental damage, and is therefore essentially useless. If you buy this don't buy the warranty, and replace the stand with something decent as soon as you can. Horrible experience overall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent immersive monitor Wow, just wow! The monitor is wide and have a nice curve so you dont need to turn your head for a natural viewing angle. After using this monitor for 3 weeks, I am sold 21:9 is the next standard. 16:9 looks so square!Screen has great viewing angle, superb color reproduction and bright, height is just right; just perfect. The OSD control joystick however needs some work, it's pretty slow and hard to use. There's very slight edge light bleed which doesnt bother me at all. The only major con is the price. Man, I can't believe I spent $ on a relative small monitor. For the same price, I could probably get a nice 50 4K monitor, but then lose the wide view which is not acceptable anymore.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vrey nice display I use it mainly for gaming, but it's also great for office work. It does have a bit of yellow/orange light leakage in the right two corners, but it doesn't bother me and it's only visible with a complete black screen.The curve is nice, but not sure it's worth $ premium over the flat. You have to sit about 4.5 feet away to be in the vertex. I use the monitor with 2 feet of distance to my eyes.I give it four stars instead of five since it should be a bit cheaper and also due to the light leakage in the corners.I use it with a GTX 980 connected by display port.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HD Real Estate This is the second LG ultra wide I've purchased through B&H. Although they have their quirks (mainly palette orientation after your computer wakes up), it would now be hard to return to a standard 16:9 format. I do professional 3D modeling and graphic design on macs, and this screen provides a perfect format to work on. Plenty of room to spread your work out, great image quality, and people flip when they walk by...usually drooling. It really is a stunning display. Quick connection using a thunderbolt cable. I would definitely buy again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Once you go wide you won't go back! The monitor is used for everything but my primary motivation for buying it was that I wanted to go triple screen for awhile now but I didn't want the dividing bezels from multiple screens. Having this monitor for gaming is, well, a game changer. When I sit down at my gf's PC to fix something for her it feels like someone put the blinders on. It was like going from a 21 Inch CRT to a 24 inch wide screen LCD but even better.The colors are great, the user interface works well and the 5ms shows no ghosting that I can notice. Things that need to change to make it perfect? Get the price under four digits. There is a bit of back light bleeding in the corners when it's a black screen. And the Monitor stand only has tilt and really should have pivot and hight adjustment. The stand works but it's very basic and the display isn't exactly light weight if you want to adjust it side to side a bit. Other than that, overall, it's a win.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer Display for Gaming and Beyond I am giving this display a 5 because as of today it is a 5. I am a huge Gamer and a long time Software Developer. I replaced two displays I was using before with this one. I am also using a ASUS 980GTX with this display in my mini itx 'Steam Box'. I used to be a rediculous water cooling pc building maniac with 3 displays and a TV in my room, but now I just want less stuff with more from it.First and Foremost:21:9 is amazing! Not all games support it, but the ones that do... are just eye candy. Notably EVE, Diablo3, Minecraft all work in full resolution. Diablo3 is really cool because you can see so much more of the world around you than before. I imagine a lot of other games also will see this benefit if not already. The ones that don't there really isn't any downside to something not supporting the full 21:9... You get black bars on the right and left and it looks like every other monitor at that point. As a user you don't notice the under resolution. Refresh seems fine (supposedly 5ms) even with VSYCN on, i'm no high end FPS guy that can tell the difference but I really doubt theres that many that can. Another thing to remember too is that with more and more pixels driving above 60fps starts to be a consideration for you video card, but the good news is that things like AA become less interesting with more pixels so turning that off and gaining some fps can sometimes look better. It's also IPS so you really can't do better in the current market for displays anyways.My Research:I watched Linus's youtube review on the display and I tend to agree with him completely. This is an amazing monitor, and for it's time (that being today) I wouldn't want anything else on the market. The others I considered were the Asus PG278Q (ROG Swift) and every other 21:9 out there. 4K is stupid right now without a dual/triple SLI 980GTX setup in my opinion so I didn't even bother looking there (you may feel differently). Even then you can push that much data over a single cable anyways with current standards.Productivity:Easily replacing two displays. As a developer I might consider a 4k where refresh doesn't matter just because I do like having taller pages, but honestly you have to remember that this thing is still 1440 tall and short of 4k nothing out there is taller (unless rotated). This still gets my thumbs up for developing. I'm sure video editing will also be ridiculous on this as well. Again though if you don't care about the Hz maybe a 4k is in your sights.Thunderbolt:I haven't used it yet, but will as soon as I get a cable. I used to have a Apple Cinema display for my work mac, but I intend to use this next. After reading the manuals, my belief is that the USB's will work over the thuderbolt channel as well.60Hz:First understand that this thing is almost in the same boat that 4k's are in with the fact that there is just too many pixels to support 120hz at this resolution on the current HDMI/DisplayPort/Thunderbolt stuff out there. I'm not talking about the cable itself or the standard, but the actual implementation of modules that drive this. They just don't exist in OEM so don't expect to see 120hz on resolutions like this or 4k any time soon. Realistically 60 should be just fine for 99% of you out there I think.IPS:Don't forget this is an IPS and fairly good one at that. Color is amazing and I wont say more than that.THE CURVE!Subtle, really not something you notice when viewing it. I think that actually means it's the right amount and also a very good thing. I can't speak for the flat 21:9's out there because I haven't seen them. But this behemoth wraps around my vision almost completely and it still feels right. I think any bigger and it might actually be a problem for it honestly.VESA:There are conflicting statements on the internet and sights about Vesa 100x100 compatibility. I was hopeful, but didn't really expect it given the pictures I saw before I bought it. I think B+H even states it is, but I can't remember. For the record it is NOT VESA out of the box. You will need an adapter, and likely one will come if it is not already on the market. Basically there is a solid metal attachment that takes two screws to connect to the stand. I imagine you could even rig it yourself with the right hardware but I haven't attempted yet. Personally the swivel to the left and right and the up/down lift might be cool to have, but I haven't desired it yet honestly. The current stand feels about the right size and height anyways. Not to say I wont rear mount it on a VESA arm someday if I can find an adapter, but for now it's not bothering me one way or the other.GSYNC:I (and everyone else) I'm sure wish it had GSYNC. I might have waited for one, if there was even a hope or glimmer of one out there in development stages but there really isn't as far as I can tell... and I looked hard. remember though that GSYNC is just VSYNC with a less input lag. If you run the numbers 60hz means a frame every 16.66ms. If you miss, you are looking at like a 15ms lag + 5ms... 20ms worst case scenario input lag ... To me I basically said... meh whatever... that is still stupid fast. Remember this is WORST case. I would expect somewhere in between to be typical usage with VSYNC.Conclusion:I was waiting since June for a new display to speak to me. It had to satisfy mostly the Gamer side of me, but also had to be useful as a workstation platform. I did want a bit more (like gsync and vesa) but this had everything else I was looking for: IPS, 21:9, 60hz+, 1440p, <=5ms response, slight curve. I feel that GSYNC isn't coming to these things for a while so I decided to pull the trigger. Someday I may trade up, but for now I am very happy with my results. I have a feeling i'm going to be a 21:9 monitor guy from here on out honestly. Replacing two monitors with this one, just makes sense. If VESA or GSYNC/144hz is important to you, maybe consider waiting but other than that you really are not missing out by starting your 21:9 journey here.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this monitor! Only had it a few weeks, but so far I can only say, (WOW)! I had been using 2, 23 Apple Cinema displays. I was a bit concerned over adapting from 2 separate screens to one large one. Also, I red some who thought the curve is more of a gimmick. But I am totally loving it. It is wide enough to have several smaller windows sorted. There is a way to literally split it into 2 or 3 physical monitors, but I have not tried that. Before with the 2 monitors, I had them slightly angled so I could look more directly at them and less of na angle. But when you tilt them up, they split apart. With this one curved screen, there is no more of that. I use this for Video Editing with a 2013 Mac Pro, and so far, it has exceeded my expectations. So glad I bought it...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Display! This monitor is great! The display is beautiful and the color rendition is amazing. I use this monitor on a mac mini (late 2011) with an i7 chip and the AMD processor (which supports the 3440 X1440 resolution). I have it hooked up with a thunderbolt cable and when the monitor is on it fires up with the computer. The only downside to this unit is the speaker system. It sounds good, but don't expect home theater from it (speakers are only 7 watts). That being said, the sound is fine for casual listening of internet video. If I want music that cranks, I'll just wifi my iTunes to an amp or sound bar. The joy stick makes the menu features of the monitor really easy to access. The split screen software that it comes with is really useful and a great asset for improving work flow. Yes, it's pricy, but worth every penny. If you want a better picture then this unit can provide, then maybe look at the new 5K MAC for $. If you already own a computer then this is the monitor to buy.
