I thought I cared about 4K... And for a while I truly did. Now I have this, and I don't remember why 4K ever mattered... Welcome to my review of the LG 34UM95.

That is pretty boss, the only thing I dont like about the ultra wide monitors is that games that dont support it look horrible with those big black bars :(

 

also it would make recording gameplay videos for youtube a nightmare

 

maybe as a second gaming pleasure only display I could get by

 

EDIT: I wonder how it compares size wise 30" 2560x1600 display

Yeah but that means suffering a horrible experience for myself :/ I guess I will have to stick to 16:9 for now

Oh god dat $1500.... I am surely gonna get one of these when the prices go down, but that might be a while, and in the meantime stick to a more affordable easier to drive 27" 2560x1080 21:9 :D

Dat price Tho

yeahhh, he usually doesn't talk alot about the price tag on premium products, it is abit of a niche thing so i guess it is to be expected, looks like a cool monitor but it isn't something i will be buying anytime soon. 


my 4p machine for those who are interested.

I'm waiting for the review of this monitor for so long, and I want one too....
I hope Linus would unbox the Dell version of this, the (upcoming) U3415w as well....

Holy fuck. That price thou. Other than that looks boss.

And your NCIX link is broken


Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.

As I get older I get angrier more cynical, meaner. I feel some warning posts coming. I feel a ban coming. I was warned.

Just to give people an idea of game support.

 

Out of my 108 games

90% support 21:9 without need to change or fix anything

9% need a text adjustment or can be fixed by using Flawless Widescreen

Mirrors Edge has black bars and can't be fixed (or easily enough for me to bother with)

I'm still attached to my 16:10 22" monitor. I love that aspect ratio. That's why I didn't buy a new monitor since... I don't know how many years. 1080p feels too narrow for me. That ultrawide monitor looks nice for certain uses, though.

As awesome as this is, and as much as I want one after watching the video, AND.... as much as I have spent on my PC or even gaming over the years......$1,500 is too much for me for a monitor.

 

Eagerly awaiting a $500-$700 model.
