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.

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

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...

JUST AWESOME

 

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

Excellent panel / poorly executed package

 

I really have to wonder what the design team was thinking on this product. From the extremely cheap bezel and stand to the button functionality this has a lot left to be desired. Sure, its a great LCD but we really need to start holding companies to...

3440x1440 is a perfect res for this size LCD. Everything is very readable with no scaling ; 21:9 is my new favorite aspect ratio. Coming from a 3 x hp zr2440w (1920x1200 / 5760x1200) setup I dont feel it was a downgrade at all. The regained desk space...

Cheap plastic bezel with with printed LG logo. You would think they would choose higher quality materials and use their embedded brushed aluminum logo like some of their 4k tv offerings on their "flagship" monitor ; Plastic chrome surround causes light...

Amazing quality all round. Though not "perfect".

 

Depending what you're in the market for, there are 4K monitors available now roughly 40% cheaper than this displays MSRP. Though they do come with some drawbacks that haven't been fully address as of yet, they may suit some users needs more then this...

When you first take this monitor out of the box you'll notice two things. First how light it is for its size, and second how good the design of the monitor looks. The glossy panel surrounded by a chrome edge has the premium quality look you'd expect...

None of these "cons" are worth taking any eggs off, as they in no way negatively affect the usability of the device, these are all minor annoyances or just personal preference ; Most websites seem "empty" on such a high resolution, and wide monitor....

Best Monitor money can buy.

 

As much as I love this display ,I have to send mine back for a replacement because of a faulty joystick.All I was able to do was turn the monitor on and off but I could not access the menu with the joystick. I even contacted LG support to see if I was...

Well built , Nice color ,excellent for multitasking , future proof connectivity

Get a little warn after a few hours, stand made out of plastic

Beautiful, but some issues

 

Let me start first by saying that I know this isn't the best review as I couldn't test everything and I didn't know about certain things. However, I want other to know what they are in for if they are upgrading from an older gen video card and haven't...

I received the monitor yesterday ; Pros ; 1. Very light ; 2. Easy to screw on stand. There are only two screws ; 3. Build quality is good. Even though it has a plastic back, it doesn't feel too cheap and it's actually a plus since it makes the monitor...

Cons ; 1. Terrible backlight bleed in the lower left corner. I will likely ask for a replacement because it takes up almost a quarter of the screen ; 2. Since my last monitor was a 2006 Dell 2407WPF, I was under the assumption that black would look so...

I Love This Monitor

 

I had both the LG 34UM95 and the Samsung UD590 monitors side-by-side on my desk. Even though the Samsung is a 4K (3840 x 2169 native resolution) monitor and the LG 34UM95 isn't (3440 x 1440 native resolution), the 34UM95 was the hands-down winner for...

This is a great all-round monitor for work and gaming. It has plenty of screen area to spread my windows out when working (software development). The panoramic (21:9 aspect ratio) form factor and size fills my field of vision while playing...

The factory-supplied stand is exceedingly lame. Buy a 30 lb. rated VESA mounting arm to go with this monitor. You'll be happy you did ; Powering down the monitor is a little quirky: According to the on-screen help, the monitor should power down with a...
