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

 

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

The new LG 34UM95 is priced like a flagship, but our tests show that performance doesn’t measure up with the MSRP. Aside from resolution, this display comes up short of its predecessor in every other area, as well as less expensive 16:9 displays. The...

A Review of the LG Electronics UM95 34UM95 34-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor

 

The LG UM95 34UM95 34-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor may not be a true 4K PC display but it offers a package of features that works better than many full blown 4K monitors on the market today. In the case of the 34UM95 you also get a very unique display...

Excellent refresh rate ; good color reproduction ; Thunderbolt 2 ; Diverse connectivity for external devices ; Beautiful 34 inch wide-screen display ; 21:9 aspect ratio

No HDMI 2.0 ; A bit expensive ; No AdobeRGB ; Not fully 4K (subjective negative)

The LG UM95 34UM95 34-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor is an excellent piece of PC display hardware that offers one of the most unique display packages on sale today. It's a bit expensive but on the whole almost worth its full price.

Review: LG 21:9 UltraWide 34UM95-P monitor

 

Using a single display with a computer can be a bit restrictive, especially if you're using lots of programs or software that need a lot of desktop space. LG's 34UM95-P monitor seeks to remedy this, either on its own or as a second screen. Gizmag spent...

LG calls it "the world's first 34-in ultrawide QHD" monitor, and it's the monitor's aspect ratio that's the headline act here. At 21:9, it's as though a standard (16:9) monitor has been pulled at either side and stretched to movie-friendly proportions....

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.

LG 34UM95 review

 

The first Thunderbolt 2-equipped 21:9 display is a cinematic sight to behold

Tall 21:9 ; 100% sRGB ; Attractive design ; Port selection ; Low input lag

Expensive ; No adjustable height ; Speakers lack bass

The 34UM95 finally does 21:9 justice, featuring a huge working area free of scaling issues, low input lag and high colour accuracy wrapped up in an attractive design. It's not the cheapest of its kind, but it goes some way to justifying the cost.

LG 34UM95 widescreen display review

 

Most PC monitors and Windows laptops are now available only in a 16:9 widescreen ratio – great for watching television that's almost exclusively shot in this shape. But these stretched screens are arguably less good for production work, where extra...

It's the subjective experience of such a super-wide panel that should help to sell this panoramic monitor to anyone who gets a chance to try it. If you're used to using two or more displays anyway, the LG 34UM95 gives an even better effect from a...

The LG 34UM95 is a widescreen display with great workstation and production potential. It plays Cinemascope-width films beautifully, too. Here's our LG 34UM95 review.
