LG 34UM95 34" Ultra Widescreen 21:9 Monitor - My New Favourite

Recommended Posts

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

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.

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.

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.

 

PS: Great review.

PRETTY PLEASE (as the panel is staying in house and accessible to you after'the'fact)

Can we eventually see LG 34UM95 3440x1440 benchmarks in the same fashion as you do 1440p/1080p benchmarks.

 

This resolution (3440x1440p) 'judging from your video about it' seems pretty ideal for dual-gpu/crossfire/sli setups and more forgiving of performance than 3840x2160 on those same "dual" setups.

The min/avg/max of this resolution would be pretty ideal for most (60-70fps) Ultra detail spec visuals,...from dual-760 up to the dual-780ti, and dual 265's-290x's/295x2's

The 21:9 monitors are great. I could not afford the 1500 dollar price of the 34" but I was able to get two 29" 2560x1080 monitors for 350 dollars on sales thru Amazon and Newegg. I have the AOC 29-inch IPS Q2963PM (21:9) LED Monitor at work and the Acer B296CL bmiidprz 29-Inch IPS (2560 x 1080) Widescreen Display with ErgoStand at home. At 2560x1080 my GTX 660 Ti has no issues pushing Ultra settings on games which I don't think it would be able to do at 3440x1440. I am a financial manager and I can tell you this monitor is so much better than dual monitor work as the side by side for some reason is better on my eyes strain wise IMHO. For gaming like Linus said the immersion and color make up for what TN give you in refresh and I am not a pro gamer so I don't think I would see the benifits, but man in WarThunder or World of Tanks the FOV is actually a bonus same for MMO's even D3 and Civ 5 its just great to have that screen real-state.


We can build it, we have the technology!
