LG 34UC79G-B 34″ 21:9 UltraWide IPS Curved Gaming Monitor Review
Finding a good ultra-wide monitor might seem hard at first, because of the wide range of products available on the market. However, making a choice will suddenly become easy when you will discover the LG-34U.C79G-B 34″ 21:9 UltraWide I.P.S Curved Gaming-Monitor. This 144-Hz monitor is curved, has a 2560×1080 full resolution on 34 inches ultrawide screen.
Offering excellent quality, 21:9 design and height adjustment, this product is indeed a good 1440p 144hz gaming monitor. You’ll find a conclusion about this product, at the end of the article, but first, let’s see some design and performance key features and also let’s check out the cons for this product!
Dimensions And Curvature
At first, you might feel hindered when observing the 34-inch diagonal screen unravelling in front of you, but you will get used to it. Yes, it could seem (too) significant in the beginning, but afterwards, you will learn how to enjoy these monitor’s generous dimensions.
When sitting closer, the curvature magic starts to appear. A 21:9 aspect ratio is considerably useful when it comes to 4K monitors (the extra width that comes with this ration is excellent for movies, and it actually means you have more workspace).
The 21:9 ratio on this 34-inch monitor brings a 2560×1080 resolution, and this can be considered an advantage when it comes to gaming. With an 82 pixels per inch density, this screen allows you to see the pixels when you are really close to it, in comparison to higher resolution monitors, where games like skyrim can take a crispy look, slightly unpleasant for the eye.
A huge advantage that comes with a “smaller” resolution (in comparison with other products) is that you will not need a rocket G.P.U in order to smoothly run games (here comes in handy the 144-Hz fresh rate).
This monitor includes A.M.D Freesync, and its inclusion is more than welcome, because it runs between 50 & 144 Hz, and this means you can enjoy the games that are built on 50-144 FPS. A.M.D FreeSync offers this product a huge boost in front of other curved monitors out there on the market that reaches their peaks at 100 Hz.
The higher the FPS parameter is, the more frames will be synchronized by the GPU with the refresh rate (and this means that the games will look smooth and neat).
Accurate Color Reproduction
With this product, you will be sure that blacks are black, and they should be. Also, color depth and saturation will surely impress you. An I.P.S panel is doing all this magic, and it surely comes with the benefit of excellent color accuracy.
The I.P.S panel comes secured in a matte black and red enclosure. You will be amazed by the brightness and vividness of the colors, even at challenging viewing angles.
Sleek Minimalistic Design
The thin frame and the small logo on the centre bottom size make this product a minimalist’s treasure. There are no unnecessary lights, no buttons or any distracting elements. LG OnScreen Control-Software can be installed, and this allows you to choose many options and profiles.
You have the control button, a 4-way joystick on the lower area of the panel and the OnScreen control so that you can choose the best option for you.
Easy Adjustable Mount Pattern
This monitor stand covers a 100mmx100mm V.E.S.A, and you can install a V.E.S.A mount instead of the one that comes within the purchase package.
You should pay attention that the V.E.S.A holes are on a recessed area and your mount may not fit. In case you run into this, the manufacturer can send you a useful alleviating bracket (you have to provide them a serial number of the monitor you have purchased).
Preconfigured Gaming Modes
Three preconfigured gaming modes are available in the setup menu of this monitor, and you can choose among them the one that fits your preferences most.
Also, they are fit for different types of games, so you should try them each and see which is best for the games you want to play.
• great curvature as well as size and resolution
• sleek and clean design
• A.M.D FreeSync
• IPS panel
• adjustable mount pattern
• Unfit preconfigured gaming modes parameters
• It is not really a 4k monitor
• Slightly dimmer than other products.
This product has an amazing contrast ratio, accurate and vibrant colors, authentic blacks, rapid response times, not to mention the price makes it one of the attractive products out there on the market.
Its resolution is not as competitors’, but this might actually be an advantage for not so expensive graphics cards. If you cannot afford the other gaming monitors available from other manufacturers, this curved gaming monitor is surely the best option for you.
