What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Monitor! ... Until I Unplugged It. I got this monitor about a year and ago. It was awesome, and epic, and beautiful, I used it every day for gaming. I absolutely loved it. Until I unplugged it. I unplugged it, and plugged it back in, and it wouldn't turn back on. Tried several outlets, none helped at all. We have another monitor, the exact same one, so I took the cord from it and plugged that in to my own monitor. It turned on! Ok, so it's my specific monitor's cord, that's the issue. Went to plug the second cord into it's original monitor, and now that one's not working. So, both cords, or adapters, suddenly stopped working, after all I did, was unplug them, and plug them back in. Awesome. Seriously? This is stupid. I love the monitor to bits. But I HATE HATE HATE the adapters/power cords.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent This is nice monitor and a nice compliment to my new Mac mini. The colors are vibrant, the setup is easy, and there's ports galore for just about everything. I wanted it for the thunderbolt ports . The onscreen controls (software installed) allows you to easily snap applications to split windows (for example, you can split your screen into four windows and apps can snap into each window; there's a myriad of screen configurations to choose from like one large on the right, two smaller on the left, etc. Purchase from Amazon on Prime day at a deep discount and my only regret is I didn't buy two. The monitor comes with a stand that adjusts up and down and offers both side-to-side tilt adjustment and forward/backward tilt adjustment. It's extremely smooth to handle and very ergonomic. There's a little catch in the back to keep all the cables tidy (nice).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Monitor!! I bought this monitor to go from two monitors to one on my desk hoping that it would be as good if not better than the dual monitors. It has not disappointed me for sure it gives me the perfect amount of working space, desk space back, and the picture is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Display for DAW After a lot of investigation I chose the 34UC98-W to display my digital audio workstation (DAW) projects. I am so happy I converted from dual 23" monitors. Whether it's showing me 32 tracks in the mixer or an entire song in the project, the need to scroll back and forth are reduced. I was concerned the PPI would be too small but it is fine for my 50 year old eyes. The curve is more gentle than I was expecting, but the curve is appreciated for viewing the extreme left and right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding monitor I use mainly for video editing. Easy to setup, color calibration is excellent. Functionality and features are easy to use. Response time is good. Resolution/ definition is excellent. Use with two PC's connected with LG dual controller software which which eliminates need for second monitor on the desk.

Connected my brand new LG 34UC98 Monitor to my laptop via an HDMI cable but the display is not showing 21:9. I accessed the on-screen menu but there is no option to maximize the display screen to 21:9. Please advise, thanks!

Asked by: dizhanker
The issue is not with the LG 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide® WQHD IPS Thunderbolt™ Curved LED Monitor (34" Diagonal), Model # 34UC98-W. Depending on what your laptop is, you need to access the settings for your GPU to output the correct Aspect Ratio that is supported by the monitor if your GPU supports it. If you have Nvidia or AND the setting is their video control panel...^IFV

How many 34UC98-W monitors may be connected via Thunderbolt to a MacPro (which has six TB ports)? I ask because I own three (3) 34UM95 monitors and they have a limitation of two (2) via Thunderbolt; my third one has to be connected via HDMI.

Asked by: DMEEPhD
Hello, you have them connected correctly as you can only have 2 connected via Thunderbolt. ^AC

For the life of me I can't figure out the dimensions as the way they are written out is confusing. What does (down) and (up) mean? Why are the dimensions with the stand smaller than without the stand? How can the height be only 3.5 inches?

Asked by: JeloRoc
Hi JeloRoc. We apologize for the error in the dimensions for the LG 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide® WQHD IPS Thunderbolt™ Curved LED Monitor (34" Diagonal), Model # 34UC98-W. The Dimensions should read as: Without Stand (W x D x H).....32.2" x 3.5" x 14.2" With Stand (W x D x H) .....32.2" x 9.1" x 17.8" (Down) and 32.2" x 9.1" x 22.1" (Up). The stand for the monitor is height adjustable and the Down and Up are referring to the height of the monitor when it is at its lower position and when it is at its higher position...^IFV

is it not possible to use pbp with two hdmi sources?? i suppose i can just buy an hdmi to displayport or hdmi to thunderbolt to address this which feels ridiculous.

Asked by: Roger Fleenor
We appreciate your interest in this monitor and its features. According to the chart listed on page 25 of the owner’s manual, the PBP mode can only use one HDMI port at a time.
