LG 34UC79G

Our Verdict

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 & better gaming. Coupled with the best contrast we’ve sầu yet seen from an IPS panel và you’ve got a near-perfect gaming monitor. The 21:9 aspect ratio & gentle curve just seals the khuyễn mãi giảm giá in our book. If you’ve sầu been waiting for a price drop in this category, it’s here. First the AOC C3583FQ & now the 34UC79G; more choices and better monitors, sounds like a win/win.

Introduction

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", và recently 38" screens; vertical resolutions ranging from 1080 to 1600 pixels; IPS và VA panels; & of course, high refresh rates with adaptive sầu refresh. Most of these have sầu come at premium prices however. Early screens required a $1000 or higher cost of entry, & there has been little movement on that score.

But recently we’ve sầu seen a couple of models break that barrier. A few weeks ago, we looked at AOC’s C3583FQ. That VA panel impressed us with its high contrast, 160Hz refresh rate, & FreeSync that works down to lớn 45 FPS. Today we’re checking out a new IPS display from LG: the 34UC79G.

Specifications

First we’ll talk about the specs that might give sầu some users pause. Yes, the resolution is 2560x1080 & FreeSync only works down lớn 50Hz. But if you’ve read our other Review of 1080p gaming monitors then you know we favor things like contrast, color accuracy, & motion processing chất lượng over resolution. We’d rather have a smooth experience không tính phí of tears, stuttering, & ghosting over a high pixel count any day.


The 34UC79G is one of the few FreeSync monitors lớn offer Low Framerate Compensation (LFC). Because its max refresh is more than two-and-a-half times the minimum, it can buffer additional frames when the rate drops below 50Hz & therefore avoid switching out of adaptive refresh mode. Coupled with lower resolution, that means users with more modest systems will enjoy the same smooth experience when the action dips below 50 FPS.

Based on what AMD has published, & our own visual observation, LFC monitors the render rates & then repeats frames adaptively in order lớn fool the monitor into lớn thinking the refresh rate is still above sầu 50Hz. That way, tearing is never a factor and you won’t have khổng lồ resort lớn latency increasing V-Sync to keep the action flowing.


Aside from this extremely attractive sầu feature, the 34UC79G sports an IPS panel with a factory-certified calibration (for grayscale & gamma only), 144Hz, blur-reduction in the khung of a backlight strobe, a subtle 3800mm-radius curve, OSD joystick, & new styling that announces its gaming intent. And the price? $699 from LG’s website. It certainly seems khổng lồ offer a lot for the money. Let’s take a look.

Packaging, Physical Layout và Accessories

LG is the master when it comes to protecting curved monitors from the rigors of shipping. The panel is completely surrounded by foam blocks & a sturdy double-corrugate box. The upright và base are wrapped separately and must be assembled. No tools are needed. Attach the base with two captive sầu bolts and snap the panel on & you’re mix.

Bundled cables include HDMI & DisplayPort. The power supply is a moderately-sized brick with a detachable power cord. You also get a calibration data sheet that certifies each panel for grayscale và gamma accuracy. Màu sắc tests are not included. A CD with supporting software & a user manual round out the package.
