A monitor’s response time is absolutely critical in games. The 1ms Motion Blur Reduction feature will allow gamers to enjoy the precision and accuracy needed to play at a very high level. With a response time that is virtually 1ms, blurring and ghosting are reduced to make the action smoother and gamer reactions more precise.

144Hz Refresh Rate - 34UC79G

144Hz Refresh Rate

Experience smoother and clearer gaming action with a 144Hz refresh rate. Games played on the LG 34UC79G are noticeably smoother when compared to monitors with refresh rates of 60Hz or 75Hz. Combine the smooth action with the curved screen, and gamers will love the optimized and immersive gaming experience.

Crosshair

 Crosshair 

With the Crosshair feature, gamers can take their skills to the next level. By placing the striking point in the center of the display, the feature enhances firing accuracy in first-person shooter games.

Can one use this with a PS4 Pro?

Asked by: SKM01
The PS4 Pro upscales from x960 and x1080 to "4K" rather than truly displaying 4K resolution (3840x2160).

can you connect the monitor directly with the red white and orange cables without the pc box thing that you see for computers

Asked by: deglol420
We appreciate your interest in this monitor. This model has not been designed with a RED/WHITE or an ORANGE cable connection. According to page 7 of the owner’s manual, this monitor can connect to headphones, USB, Display Port (DP) and HDMI.

Does the HDMI support the 144hz refresh rate or is that for the display port only? If not, what hz refresh rate will the HDMI support? Thank you

Asked by: williebeaman
The LG 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS Curved Gaming Monitor (34” Diagonal), Model # 34UC79G-B will support 2560 x 1080 @ 144 Hz and the recommended resolution is 2560 x 1080 @ 60Hz. The HDMI specification for HDMI 2.0 ports will support 4K resolution @ 30 Hz and 4K resolution @ 60Hz with an 8-Bit Color Depth. For HDMI 2.0, 1080p120 falls well within the 600MHz pixel clock and 18Gbps throughput cap (even accounting for 8b/10b encoding). It is possible for 1080p to be supported at 120Hz on HDMI 2.0; unfortunately, very few solutions on-market are capable of actually utilizing this potential. Most monitors selling with HDMI 2.0, are 4K displays that cap-out at 60Hz. This is because HDMI is ultimately a consumer interface that's targeted at TVs, but finds its way into desktop displays. For HDMI 2.0 to properly work for higher display refresh rates, the monitor and the video card must both host the HDMI 2.0 interface...^IFV

Tft central stated that the motion blur reduction cannot be used in conjunction with freesync. Why is that and will it be addressed?

Asked by: Qvl37
The reason that Motion Blur Reduction (MBR) and Freesync cannot be used in conjuction is about the technologies and how each operates and not due to any fault in the LG 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS Curved Gaming Monitor (34” Diagonal), Model # 34UC79G-B. That same TFT article that you read explains why they cannot be used in conjuction, as in this excerpt from the article, "G-sync modules also support a native blur reduction mode dubbed ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur). This allows the user to opt for a strobe backlight system if they want, in order to reduce perceived motion blur in gaming. It cannot be used at the same time as G-sync since ULMB operates at a fixed refresh rate only, but it's a useful extra option for these gaming screens. Of course since G-sync/ULMB are an NVIDIA technology, it only works with specific G-sync compatible NVIDIA graphics cards. While you can still use a G-sync monitor from an AMD/Intel graphics card for other uses, you can't use the actual G-sync or ULMB functions."...^IFV
