LG UltraWide 34UC97 review

 

Great for work, games, and movies – but it's costly

Sharp, high resolution ; Huge diagonal ; Slick, effective curved design ; Great image quality

More expensive than rivals ; Lack of adjustment options ; Uniformity is mediocre

The high price is this screen's biggest problem – in other areas, its curved display is attractive for work and play, image quality is high and it's got a huge diagonal size.

LG 34UC97 review

 

The LG 34UC97 is big, bold and easy on the eyes, but its extreme price and stubborn refusal to add important basics hold it back.

LG’s 34UC97 is a technically solid monitor. High contrast, low color accuracy and a wide color gamut come together for excellent image quality. Technically. Ideally. In theory.

LG 34UC97-S

 

The LG 34UC97-S is a striking ultra-wide monitor featuring a high-res 34-inch curved IPS screen, powerful speakers, and loads of I/O ports.

Beautifully designed. Lots of ports. Sharp picture. Good audio output.

Expensive. So-so gray-scale performance. Skewed greens. Stingy warranty.

Conclusion At a list price that's just under $1,300, the LG34UC97-S doesn't come cheap, but it's a solid choice for anyone looking to replace a dual-monitor setup with a very stylish 34-inch, ultra-wide display. Gamers and movie buffs will love the...

Hands-on with LG's Curved Ultrawide 34-inch monitor

 

LG's 34UC97 is a unique blend of form and features that sets it apart, with a price tag that could make it simply too unique for most.

LG 34UC97 review — the curveball we just couldn’t hit

 

A full 34-inches diagonal with a 21:9 aspect ration, LG's latest monitor is, at rest, one of the coolest looking displays around. The modern stand and wrap-around design make for an eye-catching design, but what happens when you turn it on? LG talks a...

Hands-on with LG's Curved Ultrawide 34-inch monitor

 

We've been sold a lot of hype around curved televisions, but after my initial eyes-on with LG's new curved 21:9 Ultrawide monitor, we're starting to think it's in that up close and personal category that curved could make a real splash.

The form and features on the LG 34UC97 are quite a unique proposition. On one level that might make it too specific in its offering to attract many buyers, but for those with the cash and the desire for one sweeping curve of screen to rule them all,...

LG 34UC97 Review: 34-Inch Curved Ultrawide LED Monitor

 

Whether you want to multitask like a pro or really put yourself in the game, LG's 34-inch, 3440 x 1440 Ultrawide Curved Monitor gives you a gorgeous experience straight out of the box. Its expansive color gamut and well-designed software guarantee that...

Beautiful curved design ; Ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio shows more than 16:9 4K resolution ; 100-percent sRGB color gamut beats most monitors' ; Excellent software for managing multiple windows or video inputs

Hideous stand with limited flexibility ; Colors sometimes over- or undersaturated ; Picture By Picture function can make images appear squished

Curves and loads of screen real estate make LG’'s 34-inch Ultrawide Monitor an intimate experience.

Review: LG 34UC97

 

U ltra wide screen monitors take up a rather intimidating amount of desk real estate thanks to the 21:9 aspect ratio and the 34UC97 is definitely no exception. It's a whopper of a thing, measuring just over 83cm wide and 47cm tall, but with great desk...

Great if you need the space, but not for the casual user.

LG 34UC97 34-Inch Ultra-Wide Curved Monitor Review

 

Yes, curved monitors are a thing now. We got our hands on LG's 34UC97 sporting a 34-inch width, 21:9 aspect ratio and 3440x1440 native resolution. It's pricey; is worth the premium you'll pay to be the first one on your block with this screen, though?

Seriously cool-looking, truly functional desktop, can replace two screens, accurate color, excellent contrast, solid build quality

Expensive, no height or swivel adjustment, no side USB ports

If you’re looking for a super-cool addition to your swanky office, look no further than LG’s 34UC97. With a high-contrast and color-accurate IPS panel, and the world’s first curved screen, it’s hard to imagine a more unique way to round out your...

LG 34-inch Curved Ultra-Wide LED Monitor (34UC97) Review

 

LG has one of the most impressive displays we've seen with its 34UC97, a 34-inch curved ultrawide LCD with a 21:9 aspect ratio.
