What customers say about "Key Specs"
LG 34UM88C 34-Inch LCD/LED Monitor
  • The 3440x1440 resolution is great for a screen this size.
  • I have another 29” 2560x1080 resolution monitor and it feels too much like a short monitor.
  • This 34” screen definitely feels wide, not short.
  • The monitor will push 60hz refresh rate on both HDMI and Displayport.
  • The product has great resolution and pretty sleek for a 34 inch screen.
LG 34UC88 Curved Ultrawide Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • Coming from a 1080p monitor, there are a lot more pixels to render.
  • It's the best 3440x1440 21:9 ultra-wide screen monitor, in my opinion.
  • I like 60fps (with freesync enabled), 1440p vertical resolution.
  • The colors are vibrant and the resolution is readable and clear.
  • I still game with amazing clarity on a 34 inch screen with unbelievable resolution and clarity during gaming.
