What customers say about "Key Specs"
LG 34GK950F Curved Monitor
  • As would be expected, this LG monitor 144Hz is a world of difference for gaming, and the Freesync seems to work just fine.
  • For work the 34” ultrawide format has always worked well for me, since I can have two documents side by side.
  • The size is large enough to act as 2 monitors, games look amazing thanks to the aspect ratio and feel amazing thanks to the 144Hz refresh rate.
  • It's rather expensive but it's not that surprising you are getting 1440p, 144hz, ips display.
  • The panel offers a 3440 x 1440 resolution and most importantly of all, a 144Hz.
Alienware AW3420DW Curved Gaming Monitor
  • The response time, the picture quality, the 34” 1800R curve. It is super immersive and is highly recommended for games such as racing and fight.
  • Superb display. Yes, bigger screens are available. But not with a this response time
  • 120Hz can be easily set (“overclocking function”). I find you still notice the difference between 100Hz and 120Hz.
  • 34 inch monitor with little visel and up to 120hz. Highly recommend!
  • Great monitor, this resolution at 34' looks crisp and very clean.

What customers say about "Features"
LG 34GK950F Curved Monitor
  • The VESA mount is useful if, like me, you prefer your monitors mounted on a pivoting arm.
  • Just had to download the firmware update and then Enable Gsync in nvidia control panel, it works flawlessly.
  • This model is compatible with AMD FreeSync graphics cards for variable refresh rate support, and even has an added Motion Blur Reduction.
  • There is a good range of ergonomic adjustments offered by the stand. Tilt offers a wide range and is smooth to move.
  • The materials were of a good standard and the build quality felt decent.
Alienware AW3420DW Curved Gaming Monitor
  • G-sync support. This uses the V1 module so is a true G-sync screen.
  • G-Sync works fine, no jerks, no tearing so top! Tested with 110 Hz and 120Hz.
  • The screen is beautifully finished, excellent manufacturing quality with a touch of the foot and the back of the screen perfect!
  • Very accessible Vesa bracket unlike my previous screen, there is ample room to put any foot 100x100

What customers say about "Connectivity"
LG 34GK950F Curved Monitor
  • The 34GK950F offers a good range of connectivity.
  • Love the additional 2 port USB 3.0 hub, with the ports located on the back of the screen.
  • A headphone output connection is provided for audio pass-through, which is pretty good.
  • The back of the screen features the connections which is pretty convenient to plug.
  • If you only have a DisplayPort 1.2 output, you will be limited to 3440 x 1440 @ 120Hz.
Alienware AW3420DW Curved Gaming Monitor
  • DisplayPort 1.2, which for a screen of this Calibre is enough with the 3440x1440 resolution.
  • Huge connections with 5 USB 3.0 outputs, 1 HDMI output, 1 Display port.
  • Try to find a screen with so many outputs you will see that it is not as simple.
  • The monitor has big pack of connections inputs and all my stuff can be connected.
  • Sadly, no HDMI 2.0B which is a shame, so no high frame rates on next gen consoles!
