Expert review by: John R. Delaney (

LG 38UC99-W


The LG 38UC99-W is a 38-inch curved-screen monitor that delivers outstanding grayscale, color, and gaming performance. At $1,500, it's a serious investment, but you get plenty of features and screen real estate for your money.

I'm really really pleased with this. The amount of screen real estate you get is very impressive. My brother in law has the LG 34UM95 and he says the difference is definitely noticeable, but it does come at a pretty big cost. It makes me feel like a...

A LOT OF MONEY and no other monitor on the market to compare to, hence why you pay the premium. That being said if you can afford it, it's well worth it. This will set the bar for the future.
