FreeSync

FreeSync

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.

How is this monitor for viewing text? I will not use it for gaming at all, but for writing text, code, and various editing duties with several windows home at the same time, lots of math equations.

Asked by: Hypertensor
How text will look on any monitor will depend on a person's visual acuity and that is very subjective. The advice most often given when shopping for a monitor with better image clarity is that you should pay attention to the monitor's pixel density (how many pixels there are per inch on the screen). You should shop for a monitor with a pixel density of 80 pixels per inch, but 90 or 95 ppi is even better. The LG 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS Curved Gaming Monitor (34” Diagonal), Model # 34UC79G-B has a pixel density of 82 pixels per square inch...^IFV
