What customers say about "Key Specs"
LG 34UC98-W Curved Ultrawide Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • Great size, clear picture, brilliant colors. I write software, do visualization, and work with large datasets/spreadsheets and the wide format is fantastic.
  • They monitors have a great resolution and I was skeptical on the curve thing but i love it now.
  • Video editing never was easier with this monitor and the the resolution is just amazing.
  • This monitor is a great size and I LOVE the curve but it's just not high enough resolution. It almost hurts my eyes to read text on it.
  • On the 4K the pixel density was so high I had to increase the font size, so the increased resolution did not provide amazing gains. And this monitor isn't a lot less resolution than 4k.
LG 34UC99-W UltraWide Curved Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • The resolution is perfectly acceptable and actually very good.
  • Another benefit is that as you can run the monitor at native resolution without any scaling - performance is fantastic.
  • The resolution is great and sound is actually pretty good for a monitor.
  • The WQHD resolution combined with excellent factory calibrated colour on the panel.
  • Wonderful screen but the resolution wasn't high enough for use with my new MacBook Pro.

What customers say about "Display"
LG 34UC98-W Curved Ultrawide Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • Amazing picture quality. I've used it for programming, web browsing, gaming, and a movie, so far, with no complaints.
  • Great color quality out of the box and at all viewing angles
  • "IPS glow" isn't as bad as other IPS monitors. Pretty good when viewing from a normal angle. Can play dark games (Elite: Dangerous) without any real issue.
  • It’s a view beautiful monitor but it seems quality control is lacking. My monitor suffered from very bad back light bleed near the top center.
  • At maximum brightness, it doesn't have that vivid, crystal clear look.
LG 34UC99-W UltraWide Curved Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • The monitor itself is fantastic, great display panel and vibrant colours.
  • The screen real-estate is just breathtaking and I can now work with one screen instead of 3 screens.
  • Above all the screen also gives me great colour and I have no complaints.
  • One of the best ultrawide monitors available if you are gaming and producing colour accurate work.
  • I'm used to looking at a Macbook retina display and text on this monitor is very grainy, not crisp at all.

What customers say about "Features"
LG 34UC98-W Curved Ultrawide Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • Curve is excellent. Immersive in games, makes for a great 'double desktop' experience for work.
  • Sound is quality, as I don't run external speakers and don't need anything too deafening.
  • Build-in stand is nice, and I love the design.
  • Everything just works. I loved also the PBP feature which display two different outputs in a split screen.
  • The audio was only average at best - maxed out volume for 7 watt speakers should sound better - so if you don't have external speakers, you will probably need them.
LG 34UC99-W UltraWide Curved Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • The image is crystal and dynamic and the features available are simple and effective at dividing the screen into various sections, if you wish.
  • For Gaming - Wow, your HUD is now well out of the way and you can see the whole world.
  • Flexible allocation and fully supported by Open Broadcast software.
  • For Browsing and Normal office use, no more screen switching or dragging from monitor to monitor - it all fits on here.
  • A superb feature is the USBC/ Thunderbolt 3 connectivity to the Mac.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
LG 34UC98-W Curved Ultrawide Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • It’s nice that they bundled a DisplayPort cable, but then it dawned on me, that my Mac Mini and Surface 3 use Thunderbolt / mini DisplayPort connections.
  • I got these monitors because my Mac Thunderbolt monitors were getting funky with the ports. I settled on these because they have a Thunderbolt daisy chain connection for the video.
  • I've yet to test the thunderbolt ports for video! But the harddrive is running super fast and the monitor is just well, AMAZING!!
  • They have display port and 2 HDMIs with a USB 3.0 hub to boot.
  • Really bad image ghosting, USB ports loose power. Very poor customer service from LG.
LG 34UC99-W UltraWide Curved Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • Power and USB-C hub support built in - significantly reduces cable clutter!
  • USB C connectivity means only 1 wire is needed to connect my Macbook.
  • You can connect 2 devices and have a side by side setup on the monitor.
  • Needs to have two USB-C to daisy chain, loose an HDMI port and gain another USB-3.
  • Not great when connected with my MacBook.
