What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor and TB2 works well Unfortunately, Apple switched to TB3. This monitor works fine with the TB3->TB2 adapter. I have not tried it with a TB3 dock that outputs mini-displayport, since they do not exist yet. More importantly, it would be important that USB devices still work over this interface change. I hook up two computers to this monitor by using a USB3 hub and TB2 interface for connecting the data peripherals. Ideally, my TB3 monitor would only require 1 cord, which the TB3->TB2 adapter is insufficient for. Do not buy this monitor for gaming, you will be disappointed. Few games support ultra-wide but good ones will letterbox for you. Bad games will be unplayable since the aspect ratio messes with the game and UI elements will be off the screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended!!! For many years I've been cluttering my desk with multiple 22" monitors with a big over sized stand to hold them. Not to mention the special adapter to connect them to my notebook with lots of cables. I've been in the market for an upgrade and when I saw this monitor at a trade show, I was sold!. Excellent out of box experience to set up and I can not have multiple programs open and so easy to drag and drop when creating presentations and reports. I can't live without it! Picture quality/resolution is amazing. Great for videos and gaming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and quality ! I primarily use this monitor for flight simming using Lockheed Martin's P3D Flight Simulator . Combine this monitor with my Nvidia 1080 8mb and you have outstanding picture and scenery quality . It has made a tremendous difference in my flight simming . If you deal with graphics , photos and hundreds of other uses you will be amazed .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Wide Screen Monitor I bought this monitor when it first appeared on the market, I did as much research as I could first. I wanted to get away from using two monitors side by side, but I need the width to have two complete pages open side by side. This monitor is very good, it needs to be set up correctly though. The issue which some photographer mentioned in a review here about a image distorting when being dragged from one side of the screen to the other occurs when the video card is set to 50 hz, but does not occur at all when set to 60 hz. I have read users complain of excessive back-light bleed, I can only say that I have never noticed that myself. Movies on this screen are amazing as the wide aspect ratio matches that of blu-ray movies. The only downside is that it does require a powerful computer or video card. I used to connect this to my Macbook Air, the air supports the resolution perfectly but the fans come on a lot which suggest that that video card is working overtime to support the resolution of this monitor. It works fine on a Mac Mini though. Sound is OK, but not as good as a moderately cheap set of powered speakers. Overall this is the best monitor I have ever used and better in my opinion than my IMac 27"

Hi. The LG 34um97 is great. I am using a thunderbolt daisy chain on five edit suites. Oddly. Two of the second monitors rarely turn on and must be physically restarted with the rocker switch (back) for it to be found. Is this normal?

Ca you tell me why I can't charge my Iphone with the original USB cable, through one of the two USB port of the monitor? I have that problem just on PC W10, on Mac everything it's ok. Do I need a driver or something? I installed all the official direvers

Asked by: floraur
It is not clear on which USB ports you're encountering issues with when attempting to charge your phone. In your inquiry, you state that you have a problem on PC W10? IS your inquiry with regards to the monitor or your PC? Both the USB IN 1 and USB IN 2 ports on the LG 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide® WQHD IPS Thunderbolt™ Curved LED Monitor (34.0" Diagonal), Model # 34UC97-S are 5V, 1.1 A. Look at the specifications for the charging port on your phone. It may be that your phone requires a higher amperage to charge than what the ports are rated for. With an amperage of 1.1 amps, if your phone requires more amps to charge, trying to charge through the USB ports on the monitor will take days to charge cause you don't have the required amperage...^IFV

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
Tested this yesterday with a MacBook USB-C to HDMI adapter and it worked flawlessly. Enjoy! Drives it no problem

Is there a way to quickly switch inputs without navigating through several OSD menus?  I'd like to make this an effective switch between my Mac and PC.  It does work, it's just sort of cumbersome

Asked by: timmyg
I apologize, but no; this monitor does not have any shortcuts available for changing between different input settings, such as that which has been described.
