Tech Review – There are many options and specifications when choosing a gaming monitor—the same goes for other gaming equipment, but monitors require you to carefully consider the visuals you’re going to see while playing. For starters, you need a gaming monitor that came from a popular brand with a solid reputation. You can never go wrong with trusted brands.
Today’s episode of Tipify Gaming Equipment series introduces you to Amazon’s featured brand of the week: LG, and its most popular monitor to date: LG 34UC80-B 34-Inch.
Price and reception
The monitor is available on Amazon at $549.99 USD. According to first-hand reviews, it’s currently one of the cheapest and most impressive monitors you can find online, and it is actually ideal for both work and play. It garnered an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars reviews from almost 300 customers on Amazon alone—buyers from other sites and physical websites are as equally impressed.
LG 34UC80-B 34-Inch is frequently bought together with AmazonBasics HL-007306 High-Speed HDMI Cable worth $6.99 USD to make the monitor compatible with other viewing devices. It rivals monitors from other trusted brands like the Acer R240HY bidx 23.8-Inch and Dell UltraSharp U3415W 34-Inch.
Build and design
The LG 34UC80-B 34-Inch has an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel. This means that the liquid crystals inside are parallel to produce color—allowing the resolution to retain the original color of the graphics regardless of the viewing angles. The wide curve of the screen carries a -5°/20° tilt, a maximum of 120mm height adjustment, and VESA mount support. You can easily adjust the mount with a simple press and click to find the most comfortable viewing angle.
For connectivity with other devices or gaming accessories, there are two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DisplayPort 1.2, one headphone jack, and a pair of USB 3.0 port surrounding the monitor’s body.
Features and performance
The 3440 X 1440 UltraWide QHD display gives an impressive and sharp picture quality. More than that, its pixel area is roughly 1.8 times larger than most monitors with UltraWide Full HD 21:9 ratio and about 2.4 times larger than monitors with Full HD 16:9 ratio.
On top of the impressive display, you can also find other features only LG products can simultaneously possess: 99% sRGB spectrum, on-screen control technology, screen split feature, AMD FreeSync Technology, and game mode customization (2 FPS mode and one RTS pre-set mode).
