What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A simply amazing monitor Wow...the capabilities of this new monitor are amazing. The 21:9 aspect ratio is a little weird to get used to at first. But then it dawns on you that this is a game changer and how did you ever live without it. Colors are bold, vivid and crisp. There is a slight backlight bleed in the edges but it doesn't bother me. I use mine for multiple Word Documents, Spreadsheets, Movie Making and Gaming. Nothing but 5/5 for all of my uses. The only downside is that the back panel (which is visible on my desk) is more of a rose color than silver. Plus it uses a god awful power block that isn't quite long enough (and brilliant white to add to my aggravation). Not sure why they couldn't use a normal power cord. But other than those issues, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gamer's Dream! I have been running all games at 3440x1440, max settings on a GTX 970 4GB, i5 4950, 24GB RAM and this is a beautiful monitor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Documentation Leaves much to be desired The monitor is very nice, but getting started with little or no documentation included in the packaging was extremely disappointing. The unit seems to have many features, but little help to how to use them properly. I feel like I have wasted many hours because of this and still am not sure that I'm able to take advantage of the high quality of the device. Frustrating experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable picture and work space I am a programmer and the 3440 x 1440 is an awesome resolution. Lots of workspace without the split screen divisions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply stunning! I bought two of these a few weeks back and absolutely love them. I was surprised that a curved monitor can actually be as visually stunning. The color depth is excellent and the monitors preform well. I have the two of them connected to my Surface Pro 3 and the performance and view is awesome. One thing I would like to mention is that the monitors work at 50hz which performs well (vs 60hz of most monitors), which is good to know since a lot of these high res monitors are around 30hz which is too slow to be useful. The other thing worth mentioning is that the Surface pro 3 can run two (with the dock) at 50hz each; however, the Surface 3 (not pro version) will only power them at 30hz, due to the reduced GPU quality. One final note is that no mini to display port cable is provided, so you will need to purchase one for each monitor that you want to use with the Surface and using the mini to hdmi connectors will cause them to flash in and out from time to time using the Surface pro 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fine monitor I mostly use this monitor for everyday email and Microsoft Office tasks, and for Photoshop and Lightroom. It is attached to my Surface Pro 3. I have not watched much video, but what I have seen is very good. It's color rendition, detail and visibility is great. I often use Windows 8.1 split screen (not the split screen feature of the monitor) If I could have extra features in the monitor, they would be : control by software from the computer; higher quality speakers; and ability to turn down the screen brightness more than the lowest setting currently available. I'm very glad I bought this monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this display. Works with older iMacs Love this monitor. I have it connected via Thunderbolt to my Mid-2011 27" iMac and it works perfectly. I've had no problems with corner or edge colors as some others have reported (I ordered mine in Jan, 2015 so perhaps it's a newer run). The picture is beautiful and the curved display is actually welcome in this form factor. I do wish it had some height adjustment so that I can have it at the exact same height of the iMac, but other than that, I have no issues. Some people have had problems with the "joystick" control at the bottom of the monitor, and the fact that the keyboard sound controls no loner work once you've plugged this monitor in, but it's quite simple to just reach for it under the screen and toggle left or right for direct volume control. So I've no issues with that. I will probabaly look into the VESA adapter to perhaps move the screen height with a different mount, but will see. All in all, a great buy. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome every day Monitor! While I'm not a gamer, I do a fair amount of photo editing and video watching. Really love the real estate, and ability to park multiple full size windows at one time. At work I use two monitors, but with this unit there is not need. Great monitor!

Using a MacBook with USB-C to drive display

Will a new MackBook with USB-C drive this 34" ultrawide display? If so, will it provide the full display resolution, or will it be limited to the MacBook 2304 horizontal pixel resolution? Also, should I use the USB-C to HDMI adaptor to drive this display?
Asked by: PhiarPhly
You should be able to find aa USB type c to thunderbolt adapter since USB type c has better band with (thunderbolt and mini displayport are the same port and cable BTW). So the answer is yes with an adapter but idk if the laptop could handle it the new macbook is far from a capable laptop.

I understand that you can have 2 PCs/MACs displaying at once but can you have each having full screen and switch between the 2? 

Asked by: cmaurizio
You will first have to download the Dual Controller Software to your computers, attach them to the LG 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide™ WQHD IPS Curved LED Monitor (34.0" Diagonal), Model # 34UC97-S. The joystick button on the bottom of the screen allows you to turn things on by pushing it up. When you double click the dual control icon on the screen, you will see the computers that you're working with which will be designated as 'main' & as 'sub'. You will be using the keyboard and mouse of the computer designated as main. HDMI 1 designates the computer plugged into it as 'main' and HDMI 2 as 'sub'. The designations can be switched after you've plugged the computers into the HDMI ports by clicking on the small dual controller icon & switching modes. You can switch between using Main PC and Sub PC using registered Hot Keys. You will find an Video Tutorial for this in the Support section for this monitor under the Help section...^IFV

Anyone Able to Use this Monitor with Windows 10

I have the LG 34” UltraWidw3 Curved Monitor (Model: 34UC97-S). I recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on my Surface Pro 3. I’m having issues with audio and video playback on monitor. Audio doesn’t play through monitor speakers and streaming video, e.g. YouTube, sputters. I’ve tried different browsers (Chrome, Edge, and Firefox). I’ve tried using my mini display port connection to the Surface Pro docking station and directly to the Surface Pro 3. I’ve changed ports on the back of the monitor. The result is the same – no audio playback and video sputters. Anyone else having issues with this monitor and Windows 10?
Asked by: DC15
hello colinscroggins, hopefully you will get this message. I am also running this monitor on a NUC with windows 10 and I had question on the resolution you are getting. I can't seem to do better than 3440 x 1440 50hz. Are you able to get 60hz? I am using the micro hdmi cable, so i am not sure if that is the limiting factor or is it the nuc.

Windows 10 compatibility.

I have my PC upgraded from 8.1 Pro to Windows 10. Screen Splitter Software for LG 34" Curved monitor not working. What should I do? Thanks
Asked by: ymoiseev
Windows 10 was recently released and is still a work in progress. You may be able to find updated software for the LG 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide™ WQHD IPS Curved LED Monitor (34.0" Diagonal), Model # 34UC97-S in the support section on the LG site[] under Dowloads > Software updates. The updates may not be there yet so you may have to keep checking the site. Previous versions of windows had screen split features built-in so you can check to see if Win10 has them too. They are also apps that may be available that will do the slit screen for you and there are a variety of software programs available that perform split screen...^IFV

Can this monitor easily separate into two viewing areas?

I have been using two monitors for many years and need to get new ones. I would like to be certain that I can easily pull up programs and work on both halves of the screen at the same time, but easily like as if it were two monitors.
Asked by: SlavikM
Yes. They have what is referred to as a slit screen program that allows many different screen setups.
