LG LAUNCHES WORLD’S FIRST 144HZ IPS 21:9 ULTRAWIDE TM GAMING MONITOR IN SINGAPORE
- 11, 07 2016
SINGAPORE, November 7, 2016 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced its 144Hz IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWideTM gaming monitor (34UC79G) in Singapore. Being the industry leader in wide 21:9 aspect monitors for three consecutive years*, the 34UC79G does not disappoint with classic features that LG’s 21:9 UltraWideTM monitors have become famous for, such as wide field of view, vivid color rendering as well as ease of usability.
As the world’s first 144Hz IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWideTM gaming monitor, the 34UC79G combines a blindingly fast refresh rate with advanced one millisecond Motion Blur Reduction. The monitor boasts seamless image transitions without annoying afterimages and the IPS display delivers accurate color expression from any angle without distortion. With features such as Black Stabilizer and Dynamic Action Sync, the 34UC79G is specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s gamers. Black Stabilizer provides extra clear contrast, allowing viewers to detect darker objects hidden in hard to see areas. Dynamic Action Sync reduces input lag so that users can enjoy fast-paced gameplay without any delays. What’s more, the inclusion of AMD FreeSyncTM offers smooth gameplay without any stuttering or screen tearing
The monitor also offers a crosshair option which adds a fixed target to the center of the screen to increase accuracy during FPS games and a mouse line hook to prevent drag resistance caused by the mouse’s cable. With the monitor’s curved shape and immersive 21:9 aspect ratio, the 34UC79G presents a world-class gaming experience for fans of FPS, RTS or MMORPG.
34UC79G also includes a number of practical design features that fit well into gaming station setups without hindering the gaming experience. They include tilting, adjustment of height and the mouse line hook which minimizes tangled cords.
“With tablets and smartphones at their disposal, consumers today don’t feel shackled to their desks anymore so it’s more important than ever that their monitors offer additional user benefits and conveniences,” said Brian Yi, LG Singapore’s Product Director of Home Entertainment. “LG is the number one brand in the 21:9 monitor space because we were first to recognize that consumers are adopting a new way of working and playing that put them ahead of the competition whether that’s working or playing.”
The 34UC79G is priced at S$1,099 and will be available at all LG authorized dealers from November 15, 2016.
