Plus you are now officially done with ever-distracting bezel across the center. Sound editors can have extensively wider sequence and more track decks in their Protools to get a bigger picture of their music, while video editors can save time since they do have to job back and forth between sequences in PremierPro. In general, this space will let you seamlessly use multiple graphic tools, thumbnail images, and web pages all at the same time. With the IPS screen supporting the 178' viewing angle with the curved panel lets you absorb everything without blind spots with the most important, ‘comfort’. The curve on 34UC97 IPS panel such superior viewing angle, wrapping the entire 34-inch screen around your range of vision.

What People Are Saying

REVIEWS

  • Reviewed by : David Helmly Jan 08. 2015
    If you plan to buy a 4K display as well , I would also recommend the LG 4K (31MU97) IPS display as a companion to the UltraWide display as the IPS colors are fairly close to each other. Always nice to have displays that match.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good tech I required a desktop solution at work to address the need of multitasking and use of spreadsheets on a daily basis. Historically I have used three screens but someone recommended to look into ultrawide screens and after a week's research into the topic I bought 34UC97-S screen. I am very pleased with the product, its design, quality and ease of switching between screen set ups. I use my screen with a MacBook Pro, hence why I bought the S version. I think this screen is a very good solution for any PC work where multitasking is required and would recommend it to anyone. 23 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Monitor Ever As an aspiring computer animator and visual effects artist (whose hobbies include photography, gaming and video editing) I can confidently say that this monitor is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best investment I have made and is the perfect for all the things I've mentioned above! Using the 3D animation package Maya has never been more enjoyable and beautiful, with the size of the monitor allowing me to really make adjustments in one window and immediately see the result right next to it in another window! (Perfect example: I was texturing a Monster Can for a uni project on one side of the monitor and working on the texture in Photoshop right next to it - being able to work on the texture and see the changes I was making = perfect) Likewise, the screen real estate this monitor provides for programs like Adobe Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects = simply incredible and its usefulness cannot be underestimated. Gaming on this badboy... B.E.A.Utiful! From First-Person Shooters, to Strategy Games, to Racing... Honestly can't fault it - except quite a few games don't support 3440x1440p natively but that's really not a problem. Not to mention watching Blu-Ray's on this monitor in the 21:9 aspect ratio... Wow. LG have also included some pretty awesome software in the form of Dual Controller, which allows for two input devices side by side - I can even control my MacBook with my Windows PC mouse! There's also another program called Screen Split which allows for automatic window resizing in several pre-defined formats (i.e. 4 equally-sized windows, 1 large & 2 small, etc) TL;DR (too long;didn't read) - Look no further! 29 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by exciting but.... is this a product you should buy? yes, if you got the money. very nice colours and uniformity. decent built quality. love the resolution, format and size. but... if you look left and right, you will notice the separation between backlight and ips. speakers are rubish (kind of to be expected from built in). backlight bleed, backlight bleed, backlight bleed, backlight bleed. everywhere and lots of it. no, you cannot notice it during the day, but i bought the monitor to be able to use it whenever i want, not only during the day! i think the only sollution is oled (hopefully in the future we ll have that option too). other thoughts? i d love to see an option without anti glare. it works well but it can t beat glossy monitors in sharpness and contrast (amateur s oppinion). g sync would be nice. 21 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good This product is very good. Clear picture, awesome for watching movies and also playing games. Being IPS monitor their is hardly any frame so you get a bigger picture. I am that impressed with it I am looking at getting a 2nd one 18 September 2015
