LG 34UC79G review: The most affordable ultrawide gaming monitor


Ultrawide monitors are generally expensive, but the LG 34UC79G sits at a competitive price point

144Hz refresh rate ; Responsive monitor ; An affordable ultrawide monitor

Colour accuracy ; Low brightness levels

If you’re a casual or competitive gamer looking to spend less than £500 on an ultrawide monitor, I don’t think you’ll find many that compete with the LG 34UC79G. I recommend it.

LG 34UC79G-B


The 34-inch LG 34UC79G-B, a slightly curved, ultra-wide monitor designed for gameplay, offers plenty of ports and gamer-friendly settings.

AMD FreeSync enabled. Speedy refresh rate. Game-friendly features.

Slightly skewed greens. No speakers. Stingy warranty.

Conclusion At $699.99, the LG 34UC79G-B is a great deal if you're looking to do your gaming on an extra-wide, extra-large screen. Its subtle curve keeps you close to the action, and its IPS panel delivers strong grayscale performance and wide viewing...

LG 34UC79G 34-inch Ultra-Wide FreeSync Monitor Review


LG ushered in the curved ultra-wide display genre with its 34UC97 just a little over two years ago. Since then the category has seen new models from every major manufacturer offering 34", 35", and recently 38" screens; vertical resolutions ranging from...

High contrast ; Out-of-box accuracy ; 144Hz ; Excellent blur-reduction ; Ghost-free overdrive ; panel response ; Low input lag ; Styling ; OSD joystick ; Value

None that affect gaming or general use performance

While some may cry for greater resolution, we think the 34UC79G goes far beyond “just fine” the way it is. A lower pixel count means higher framerates which translates to smoother motion and better gaming. Coupled with the best contrast we’ve yet seen...

LG 34UC79G-B / 34" / IPS / UW Curved / HDMIx2,DP / 5ms / 144hz / Freesync / VESA / Justerbar


Jag har nu haft min i lite mer än en vecka, jag tycker den är helt super men jag ger den en 4/5 för att ljusstyrkan på skärmen är sämre än andra skärmar jag använt.

Der Monitor ist einfach nur Top. Von der Größe her ist er einfach Groß zum Zocke und hat ein 34 zoll Display. Würde ich weiterempfehlen

Guter Preis

34 Zoll Curved Top !


Die Auflösung ist gut aber für den Preis und die Größe sollte man nicht zu viel erwarten, dann sollte man lieber zu 4K Ultrawides greifen. Zum zocken Optimal fürs normale Desktop-Using Gewöhnungsbedürftig.

Günstig für die Größe und ein gutes PRLVerhältnis. , 144 Hz zum zocken geeignet , gut einstellbar

Auflösung für die Größe etwas schlecht , für manche zu groß

“Top voor gamen en films”


Nu mijn 2e ultrawide van LG en bevalt mij enorm! De monitor is snel op te zetten, en werkt meteen helemaal goed uit de doos. Hoeft alleen de refresh rate nog aan te passen in windows. Joystickje aan de onderkant voor menu's werkt een stuk beter als wat...

144hz Perfect voor gamen ; Prachtige kleuren

Lage resolutie is af en toe merkbaar
