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.
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.
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.
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).

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
