LG 34UC88 monitor review

 

This 34-incher is 21:9, curved and ultrawide

Beautiful QHD display ; Fetching design ; Impressive 'Dynamic Action Sync' mode

No G-Sync support ; Limited to 75Hz refresh rate

There’s nothing quite like working (and playing) on an ultra-wide curved monitor, and this is one of the best we’ve seen.

LG 34UC88-B

 

Toolless assembly, really easy setup, great image quality, HDMI and DP cables provided

One mini-joystick/clicker control for setup and adjustment, warns on not using provided cables yet does not provide adapters for Mini DP or USB C, (will work with other cables though)

LG 34UC88-B

 

Coming from a 27" (2k) 16:9, I couldn't be happier with this screen. The amount of screen space is incredible! Enjoy every minute in front of it.

Nothing at all.

Fantastic aesthetics. Tool-less assembly. Plenty of height adjustment. Easy to setup with the little joystick. Quality of picture is excellent. No back-light bleed. Blacks are deep and rich - just like the colours. Superb contrast.

No horizontal adjustment on the stand. Stand base curve doesn't match the screen - more of an annoyance.

Amazing looking monitor, great brightness and spot on color of of the box. The curve was odd at first, but i very quickly got used to it, I've tried it with Photoshop and Lightroom and not been bothered by the curved lines. Web browsing is good to,...

Some light bleed at the corners, but I had to go looking to find it. I've yet to notice it in any real world situation. I've no idea why they build speakers into these monitors. It can only add to the cost and they're never going to be good enough...
