LG 34UC98 Overview

  • 1Description

The curved In-Plane Switching (IPS) display found on the 34UC98-W 34" Monitor from LG makes it easy to see all areas of the screen without moving your head. The curvature of the display ensures that all points of the screen are equidistant from the eye offering an enhanced viewing experience. Whether working, gaming, or watching a movie this 21:9 display features a 3440 x 1440 resolution along with a 5 ms response time producing a clearer picture complete with reduced ghosting and blur. In addition to clarity and reduced ghosting, this LG monitor also covers up to 99% of the sRGB color spectrum for enhanced color accuracy. With OnScreen Control (OSC) and Split Screen 2.0 technology the display can be customized using Picture-in-Picture or Picture-by-Picture functionality to get a side by side view of your content.

Connectivity is key on any monitor, and the LG 34UC98-W doesn't disappoint. It comes equipped with dual Thunderbolt 2.0 ports, two HDMI (ver. 2.0) ports, one DisplayPort, and a dedicated USB 3.0 hub. The dual Thunderbolt 2.0 ports offer a bi-directional data transfer rates of up to 10-gigabits per second, as well as the ability to daisy-chain devices. USB compatible devices such as external storage drives, keyboards, mice, and even smartphones and tablets can be connected to any of the USB 3.0 ports. LG has even built-in a quick-charge USB 3.0 port to charge compatible devices faster than a traditional USB 2.0 port.

Thunderbolt 2.0
Two Thunderbolt input/output ports allow you to connect compatible devices to move data between them with incredible speed of around 10-gigabits-per-second throughput in both directions. Speeds much faster than USB 2.0.
USB Connectivity
Charge the battery of a connected device quickly using the USB 3.0 port. This port charges USB 3.0 Quick Charge compatible devices much faster than typical USB 2.0 cables, so waiting for a full charge doesn't hold you up.
OnScreen Control & Screen Split 2.0
OnScreen Control allows you to easily control the screen configurations and display settings to customize workspace on the screen with a few clicks of mouse. An upgraded Screen Split feature with PIP Mode and My Display Presets are designed to offer many on screen window resizing options for an organized and efficient user experience.
sRGB Over 99%
sRGB is the standard color space of ideal color reproduction. So, with over 99% coverage of the sRGB spectrum, this LG monitor is a great solution for professional photographers, graphic designers, or anyone looking for highly accurate color.
Screen Height & Tilt Adjustable
Thoughtful ergonomic design such as adjustable height and tilt of the display for optimal eye level assures you a comfortable work space setting.
Game Mode
Game Mode, consisting of FPS, RTS, and Custom modes, provides a customized gaming experience that can be optimized to suit your favorite game genres.

    LG 34UC98 Reviews

    34UC98-W 34- 21:9 Curved IPS Monitor is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I have had this monitor for about a week now and just amazed at how beautiful it is. I am a programer so its like having 3 monitors in one and much better then my previous two monitor setup. Amazing color rendition and video editing is so much easier. I was hesitant to buy such an expensive monitor but after using it this last week I don't regret my decision. Just in case if might be helpful to others, I am using this monitor with a late 2013 13 macbook pro using thunderbolt. No issues whatsoever, also its running at 60 hertz. Also as a side note I would like to say what great service I have had so far with B&H. I bought my DSLR, computer and now this monitor from them and I will continue to use them in the future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend this monitor Scope of usage: Mac (thunderbolt) and Windows (HDMI), business apps, application development, and X-Plane flight simulation. Pro's: fantastic color quality, USB hub can be fed via thunderbolt cable (without USB up cable). Con's: Does not auto-detect which video port is active (have two switch it manually). Price is reasonable if you shop around (B&H was the most competitive at the time I purchased). Also some good news, the new MacBook Pro 2016, if you get it w/ Radeon 460, can drive X Plane at high frames per second, although the laptop gets hot behind the touchbar. Note that Bison-tech is releasing a thunderbolt external GPU solution compatible with the new MacBook Pro 2016 in Q1 '17.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing! Love, Love, Love the monitor. I also have two Apple Cinema monitors. I was afraid when I orderd the curved LG 34UC98-W that it might not have as good a resolution as the Apple Cinema. This monitor is as impressive, or maybe even more so than the Apple Cinema monitors. I use it as an external monitor connected to a MacBook Pro with Retina. Very, very pleased with the quality of the images .... no visible pixelation. The curved part makes it more cutting edge, up to date technology.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent monitor I had 27inch 4K Dell, replaced with this . Loving it with Thunderbolt can get 10bit. I calibrated with Spyder-got 100% RGB and detail analysis it gave 4 star. Best Buy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally worth it if you work in some type of media. I work in video and music production. This monitor is perfect for it. I used to work with a rather warm and aging dual monitor setup and this thing makes my set up much cleaner. The immersive curve really sets you right up to work, watch or browse. It's definitely a must have for those who love having the work space and like to work in full screen in each application. You won't regret the 21:9 aspect ratio. If I had to give some negatives, the usb port in the back does not rapid charge any of my devices but then again I don't like sticking my phone in out of ports in the back of a monitor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Focus in center, changes whole work flow I replaced side by side 20 monitors with this one curved monitor. Changed my whole workflow in Lightroom, Premier and Photoshop. Now I can center my active work and set the control panels to left and right. Really amazingly better than looking right at image, then back left to controls and back and forth. Also sharper at 1400 lines high compared to 1080 of old monitors. Like having a new computer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome monitor! Crisp and sharp picture quality, Great ultra-wide monitors for multi-taskers (gamers & video/photo editors and multimedia) Crisp and sharp image quality, vibrant colors , nice contrast, able to go very bright , anti-glare coating, elegant and modern design/aesthetics, USB port for RGB lighting too! :) A must have for every individual who wants an immersive experience with their computer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Monitor Got this a couple of weeks ago to use with my Mac Pro and it really is beautiful and functional for my needs in advertising. As apple no longer makes monitors for their top of the line computers I would recommend LG as an excellent alternative. Do not get a Mac 27 thunderbolt as I went through 2 of them quickly as they just stopped working. Funny how they make a 5K monitor for the iMac but nothing of the Mac Pro. Think that pay cut for Tim Cook should have been more! LOL! Thanks to B&H and their quick service I was able to get this right away.

    The iPad Pro 12.9" 3rd generation or the iPad Pro 11" will support up to a 5K monitor. The iPad Pro 12.9" 3rd generation and the iPad Pro 11" will work with this monitor with a compatible adapter/cable.

    Does this monitor work on MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2013), Graphics Intel HD 5000 1536 MB?
    Asked by: Leonard
    It probably will, however I would strongly suggest looking at the resolution capabilities of the MacBook Air. It may work but you might find the clarity and resolution difficult to adjust to....There have been significant improvements on resolution to external monitors in the last four years.

    Looking for a best monitor for a 2017 macbook pro with usb-c ports. Does it perform well with the latest macbook pro?
    Asked by: mari k.
    The LG 34UC98 does not have USB-C ports. It has two Thunderbolt 2 ports, so you would need the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter. Basically everything except charging. LG does offer the 34UC99 and 38UC99 which have a single USB-C connector, but this only provides 60w for charging. That would be ok if you have the 13 MacBook Pro but the 15 MacBook Pro needs 87w.

    Does this monitor work with Mac Pro 4.1 (early 2009) that has mini display and dvi output?
    Asked by: Sylvain L.
    I read on a discussion forum that the reason some people are having issues with the monitor is because they are not using the HDMI cable that came with the monitor. You should call and ask to verify. I am using the HDMI cable and have had very minor issues
