AMD FreeSync™ Technology

With FreeSync, you can play any high-end game without screen tearing and stuttering that occur from the difference between a graphic card’s frame rate and monitor’s refresh rate.

1ms Motion Blur Reduction

Fluid Motion with “1ms Motion Blur Reduction”

A monitor’s response time is critical to see moving objects without afterimages in games. "1ms Motion Blur Reduction" enables clear object display when it requires quick response to different situations in games, enhancing user’s immersive experience. Enjoy the clear motion with rich and vivid colors from any angle of an IPS display.

How “1ms Motion Blur Reduction” Works

How “1ms Motion Blur Reduction” Works

While 1ms Motion Blur Reduction is activated, it produces a black image insertion effect by blinking the backlight, and this effect is similar to twice as much frame changing per second. It reduces motion blur since the backlight is off during the rising & falling period of the liquid crystal without creating / doubling the frames.

Dynamic Action Sync & Black Stabilizer

The Dynamic Action Sync allows users to instantly attack their opponents without delay, by synchronizing user senses with real-time scenes in fast-paced games by minimizing input lag. The Black-stabilizer gives users full visibility even in the darkest of scenes.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this instead of the 5k Ultrafine I bought this a week ago and I absolutely love it! As my wife (who is not a techie) said "your new monitor is awesome! But so is the price...." Great Colors, inbuilt speakers were a surprise. Was considering the 34 inch but they didn't have usb C, (might still get the 34 for work) but as they say, go big or go home. Get this, you won't regret it. I know I didn't!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger and Better than my 34UC97 Excellent picture quality. I love the extra size and the USB C port. It has standard VESA mount so works with my monitor arm to free up desk space.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from USB-C does not work with New Mac Book Pro Hooked this up to the new MacBook Pro 13" base model via USB-C and while the laptop received power from the screen, the monitor would not recognize that anything was connected. The MBP can display on this monitor if connected via Display port. 2nd LG monitor in 2 days to have serious flaws. Not sure I will be trying a third time.
