LG 38UC99 38-inch ultrawide monitor review


Massive size ; Sharp, color-accurate image quality ; Plenty of connectivity options ; Sturdy stand

More expensive than competitors ; Average contrast ratio ; Short warranty

LG’s 38-inch ultrawide is nothing short of jaw-dropping, and from the moment you lay eyes on its curved 4K panel, you’ll wonder how you ever got by with a measly 27-inch or 24-inch monitor.

LG 38UC99-W


The LG 38UC99-W is a 38-inch curved-screen monitor that delivers outstanding grayscale, color, and gaming performance. At $1,500, it's a serious investment, but you get plenty of features and screen real estate for your money.

Excellent performance. AMD FreeSync enabled. Robust feature set.

Expensive. Stingy warranty.

Conclusion If you're ready for some big-screen gaming and don't mind parting with a sizable wad of cash, the LG 38UC99-W is an excellent choice. Not only is it the biggest gaming monitor we've tested, but it offers a wealth of gamer-friendly features,...

Klare Kaufempfehlung!


Der LG 38UC99 ist ein Traum-Monitor. Wir können ihn getrost als Multitalent bezeichnen, wenngleich er für die Bildbearbeitung aufgrund seines speziellen 21:9-Formates nicht die erste Wahl ist. Unterm Strich leistet sich der gebogene 38-Zöller von LG in...

Review: LG 38UC99-W - Ultrawide monitor met prachtig beeld


Van curved televisies zijn we eigenlijk geen fan. Curved monitoren is een ander verhaal, zeker als ze 38-inch zijn. Een week lang stond de LG38UC99 op ons bureau.

Beeldkwaliteit ; Reactietijd ; Formaat

Beperkte beweegruimte voet

Dit is niet zomaar een ultrawide monitor. Hij staat omwille van de prijs en formaat ook niet zomaar op je bureau. Het is ook niet ‘zomaar’ een monitor omdat je toch een beeldscherm nodig hebt om je werk te kunnen doen. Deze monitor is voor intensief en...
