LG 34UM95


The LG 34UM95 is a beautifully crafted and very expensive 34-inch ultra-wide Quad-HD monitor that lets you split its massive screen into four custom-sized sections. I/O ports are plentiful, and viewing angles are wide, but this monitor's color accuracy...

Huge screen. Gorgeous design. Lots of ports

Expensive. Middling color accuracy and gray-scale performance. Tilt-only stand

The LG 34UM95 ($999.99) is not only the largest ultra-wide monitor to hit PC Labs; at just under a grand, it's also the most expensive. As the model number implies, this behemoth features a massive 34-inch (diagonal) In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel with...

LG 34UM95 Monitor Review


21:9 monitors have done a good job of filling a couple niche positions in the marketplace. For someone that wants a single display to watch movies and use with the PC, the aspect ratio can work well. With many games, the wider field-of-view enhances...

On prior 21:9 monitors I always felt they had a niche where they worked well, but they weren't a product for everyone. Perhaps it is just using too many 27' monitors at this point, but only having 1080 vertical pixels with such a wide screen feels very...

LG 34UM95 review


About a decade ago, a revolution called 16:9 hit the monitor market. Inspired by new HDTVs with the same aspect ratio, 16:9 monitors slowly but surely overtook their 4:3 brethren, despite protests from a few productivity-obsessed geeks. Now, the 21:9...

21:9 format makes a strong first impression ; Great monitor controls ; Plenty of connectivity options

Stand only tilts ; High color inaccuracy for the price ; Mediocre contrast and color gamut

The LG 34UM95 makes a powerful first impression, but its average image quality and $899 MSRP make it difficult to recommend.

LG 34UM95 34-Inch Ultra-Wide QHD Monitor Review


When we looked at 29-inch ultra-wide displays last year, we asked for greater size and more pixels. LG answers that request with its 34UM95, a 34-inch panel with a resolution of 3440x1440. Today we run it through our performance and usability analysis.

Amazing monitor; flaws are hugely exaggeraged


As I mentioned in my cons section, this monitor is more likely to arrive damaged by UPS than it is to have really bad backlight bleed. The packing was better than what I had read about on message boards, but I think it could have been packed better to...

Ridiculous amount of screen real estate. It honestly eliminates the need for multiple monitors (for me). Bezels have always bothered me, which is why I shied away from multiple monitors in the past. Being able to have two things open side-by-side,...

The only real con to me is the price (paid $999). While I do feel it's worth the price, I do wish it was a bit cheaper. There is apparently a 34UM94 version coming out in a month that should have a starting price around $800. I personally would not pay...

None at the moment other than this monitor is A M A Z I N G !!

Most amazing monitor I've ever seen or used. IMO, 4K monitors are not worth it for at least another year or two, 4K monitors via HDMI are only 30Hz.. This monitor is 50Hz via HDMI and 60Hz via Display Port, providing your GPU has the option of...

None really. Some people complain about the stand hight of the monitor; how it only has 2 adjustments. I ordered a swinging arm desk mount stand type thing for it but I may not even use it since the stand that came with it works great for me

Redefines PC gaming


I was looking forward to 4K gaming until I saw the 34" in person and ordered it on the spot from newegg. You will do the same as I did when you see it in person. the $300 price increase for the 3440x1440p vs the 2560x1080p (34um65) is worth every penny...

Awesome Gaming Monitor ; Great Color ; Makes you smile everytime you sit down at your computer

Even though the stand on the 34 is beautiful and I understand the way LG is going with the floating stand style, but the stand could easily use another 2-3" on the tall setting... Not a deal breaker at all

Beautiful Display, Excellent Size


The power supply is an external brick. This shouldn't be much of a surprise as thin monitors like this often move the power supply out of the unit to cut down on components, heat generated (and thus more components needed), etc. I didn't notice any...

This is a very lightweight and thin monitor. (See the spec for exact measurements.) ; The IPS panel is absolutely gorgeous ; It comes with 2 HDMI cables ; The screen size and DPI is perfect for multi-tasking. I kept the resolution at 3440x1440 and this...

I had some initial trouble with the stand. When first attached, it turned out the screws went in at an odd angle. I tried to stand up the monitor and the screws popped out. A scary experience but because I didn't trust those two little screws I still...

Quality Control Issues


I just ordered this the last week of June from Newegg, I was shocked to find it available. I knew of the backlight bleeding issue, but took a chance that this was new stock with the problem resolved. Unfortunately it is exhibiting the dreaded backlight...

I had to pick up a different stand for it, i'm tall so the stock stand is to low for me.

Screen is crisp, colors are vibrant and it's an IPS! No issues with gaming at all either! VESA 100 mount

One tiny stuck blue pixel, only viewable while black. Normally I would swap but it's only effected during black screen and even then it is still to tiny to see unless you're looking for it
