FreeSync

With FreeSync, gamers can experience seamless, fluid movement throughout hi-res, fast-paced games. FreeSync nearly eliminates tearing and stuttering that can occur because of differences between a graphic card’s frame rate and a monitor’s refresh rate.

"1ms Motion Blur Reduction"

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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Price for a great ultrawide monitor I bought this monitor a month ago, 1080p looks great on this screen even whilst browsing or watching YouTube or Twitch. Gaming is incredible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fantastic monitor for the price! I purchased this monitor about 6 months or so ago, so I've had it for a good long time at this point. When I first purchased the monitor, it came defective (through Amazon) and I needed to return it. The backlight was dead near the middle through about 1/4 of the screen and it was completely unusable. I got a replacement, and since then it's been working great. There were a few things I was worried about when I was shopping for this monitor, so I'd like to touch on those for future buyers. First, the backlight bleed. Some people seem to get "lucky" and not have backlight bleed, and some people complain that the bleed is so bad that they can't live with it. I game frequently, and YES, there is backlight bleed. In my opinion, it's negligible. It's only near the corners, and even when playing a very dark game it isn't something that will pull your focus away from the action. If you look for the bleed while playing a dark game or watching a dark TV show or movie, you will see it - but if that's a dealbreaker, you just won't be satisfied with any monitor that has specs like these. When playing a game or watching something that is even moderately bright, you can't see the bleed even if you're looking for it. Second, the brightness. You can mess around with the settings and find a configuration that maximizes the brightness of the screen, and it's still not that bright. I don't like to have a glaringly bright monitor, so I haven't really noticed this except when I'm using my laptop near my desktop and realize the laptop screen is really quite noticeably brighter. Finally, the resolution. People will comment about how the resolution is way too low for a screen of this size. I disagree, but I understand that it's personal preference. My previous monitor was a 27" 16:9 LG monitor with 1080p resolution, so upgrading to this was just essentially like adding on more pixels to widen the screen (the ppi is identical to a 27" 16:9 1080p monitor). In conclusion: I think that if you're looking for a large, 21:9, curved monitor with 144hz refresh rate - this is it. The fact that you can even get a 144hz monitor at this size for this price is amazing, and I haven't had any trouble with it. Running 144hz on a screen this large can be taxing for your computer, but the lower resolution can help compensate, and I don't consider it a drawback. I deduct one star for the minor, but likely unavoidable backlight bleed, and the low maximum brightness. That isn't to say I dislike this monitor, it's just that if those factors are very important to you, I would urge you to consider your options!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Screen Space and Fast Refresh Rate! I bought this awhile back, I was skeptical that it was going to be too big or it wasn't going to work as expected, but It was more than I imagined. It's got a lot of screen space since it's wide screen so I can multitask projects that I'm working on. It is also great for gaming. Imagine being able to see more than what you are capable of in a game. This is truly a great monitor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck I’ve had this monitor for maybe a couple months now and have had very little problems. It is 1080 p though so looking back I would recommend getting the higher resolution one and make sure you don’t grab the edges of the monitor when mounting because I think that made my screen bleed just a little bit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great size for gaming. Very immersive. Had the monitor for a month now. No dead pixels. Backlight bleed in corners. Pondering sending it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bang for buck For the price ( I purchased mine during prime day) there was no monitor even close to offering these specs. I firmly believe at the price I purchased this at there is no better option for a responsive ultra wide meant for gaming.

I bought a VESA 100 compatiable wall mount (based on reading that it was compatiable with such mounts) but the indentiation on the back of the panel does not allow the mount to fit into the space necessary. How do I mount this monitor?

Asked by: mtgent
Hello, as per the manual on page 14, to install the monitor to a wall, attach a wall mounting bracket to the back of the monitor. After you have done so, then the unit can be attached to a wall mount. ^AC

How to stop the intense flickering during 3d applications. I've changed display cables, updated drivers. I don't want to keep changing Color Depth just so it can not do this. GPU: Radeon RX 480 FreeSync/144hz

Asked by: Konsento25
What about trying other 3D apps? Does it do the same thing? Check also if the app is in full screen or not and also use the supplied cable that came with the unit. For more help please give us a call at 1-800-243-0000. ^AC

Can this monitor be mounted on wall? are there screw holes in back like tv monitor. If so please recommend a mounting bracket that will work with this display.

Asked by: Kiju
The LG Wall Mount Plate, Model # RW120 is recommended in the owner's manual for the LG 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS Curved Gaming Monitor (34” Diagonal), Model # 34UC79G-B. However, the monitor is a VESA® Compatible Wall Mount that has a VESA® Wall Mount Pattern of 100 x 100 (mm), so any VESA® Compatible Wall Mount that supports that wall mount pattern regardless of make or manufacturer will work. ^CP

I also have a second question regarding the compatibility with adapters. I read there may be a few problems but which ones and are theh likely to occur?

Asked by: HeyItsMe
In regards to the adapters, you can try to use it but we cannot guarantee that by using it, you can get a better performance compared to a straight connection. Also, it may block for you to get the resolution that the monitor can produce. ^AC
