I use this monitor for digital photo editing and finances. The first requires accurate color rendition and the second the ability to open multiple documents that are large enough to be usable when placed side by side. I'm not a gamer but have a high end Windows 8.1 system and dedicated nVidia graphics card. This monitor has met and exceeded my expectations in that I feared documents would be stretched and distorted to fill the screen. I have not seen any distortion despite its 21:9 format. Word and Excel documents fill the screen but maintain their dimensions, there is more margin on the sides. It is bright with vivid colors and crisp to my eye and I don't see significant back light bleeding on my monitor. It seems uniformly black on the edges and corners. If you have extra cash, go for it.

I purchased this monitor hesitantly. The size and curve seemed awesome but the price was a little high. I decided to purchase it because I had read some great reviews though. I saw a lot about back light bleed problems but supposedly they were all fixed in production. This was not the case. The monitor I received had the worst back light bleed I have ever seen. I'm sending the monitor back for a replacement hoping that the replacement will not have the bleeding but I'm considering just returning it for a refund. From the other monitors I have seen people receive, most of the monitors have back light bleed. I haven't decided if having to return it multiple times will be worth the hassle for what the monitor provides. I love the size of it and it has awesome features but trying to watch dark videos with the bleeding in unbearable. If the price of the monitor was not so high I wouldn't be as bothered by it but I would hope that for such a large amount of money there would be perfect. I will update this review if I get another monitor with how it turned out.

Great monitor and TB2 works well
from Austin, TX, United States
Comments about LG 34" Black IPS Curved UltraWide Monitor:
Unfortunately, Apple switched to TB3. This monitor works fine with the TB3->TB2 adapter. I have not tried it with a TB3 dock that outputs mini-displayport, since they do not exist yet. More importantly, it would be important that USB devices still work over this interface change. I hook up two computers to this monitor by using a USB3 hub and TB2 interface for connecting the data peripherals. Ideally, my TB3 monitor would only require 1 cord, which the TB3->TB2 adapter is insufficient for. Do not buy this monitor for gaming, you will be disappointed. Few games support ultra-wide but good ones will letterbox for you. Bad games will be unplayable since the aspect ratio messes with the game and UI elements will be off the screen.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

For many years I've been cluttering my desk with multiple 22" monitors with a big over sized stand to hold them. Not to mention the special adapter to connect them to my notebook with lots of cables. I've been in the market for an upgrade and when I saw this monitor at a trade show, I was sold!. Excellent out of box experience to set up and I can not have multiple programs open and so easy to drag and drop when creating presentations and reports. I can't live without it! Picture quality/resolution is amazing. Great for videos and gaming.
Great features and quality !
from Ohio, United States
I primarily use this monitor for flight simming using Lockheed Martin's P3D Flight Simulator . Combine this monitor with my Nvidia 1080 8mb and you have outstanding picture and scenery quality . It has made a tremendous difference in my flight simming . If you deal with graphics , photos and hundreds of other uses you will be amazed .
BEST-EVER WIDE SCREEN MONITOR!
By NIKON USER
from Blue Ridge Country
For the folks who write poor reviews on this monitor haven't had much time working in the computer world! This Monitor is AWESOME!! Can work with it all day long! Great contrast, have it attached to a 27 inch iMAC and it does the job! Thank you LG! Can't wait to buy two more!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
features are now standard with most monitors

I bought this monitor with touchscreen in mind as per sales rep but there is no touch screen. a feature you need when your in the digital designing world. 1 star for not being up to date with todays technology needs.
Amazing Wide Screen Monitor
from Chiang Mai Thailand
I bought this monitor when it first appeared on the market, I did as much research as I could first. I wanted to get away from using two monitors side by side, but I need the width to have two complete pages open side by side. This monitor is very good, it needs to be set up correctly though. The issue which some photographer mentioned in a review here about a image distorting when being dragged from one side of the screen to the other occurs when the video card is set to 50 hz, but does not occur at all when set to 60 hz. I have read users complain of excessive back-light bleed, I can only say that I have never noticed that myself. Movies on this screen are amazing as the wide aspect ratio matches that of blu-ray movies. The only downside is that it does require a powerful computer or video card. I used to connect this to my Macbook Air, the air supports the resolution perfectly but the fans come on a lot which suggest that that video card is working overtime to support the resolution of this monitor. It works fine on a Mac Mini though. Sound is OK, but not as good as a moderately cheap set of powered speakers. Overall this is the best monitor I have ever used and better in my opinion than my IMac 27"

Nice to watch movies, but
By Dirk Simons
I got this Display as a Christmasgift. First I connected my Blue Ray Player and it worked great. No Black boxes above and below the screen. But then I'm trying to connect my 15" MacBook Pro (Mid 2009) and it didn't work. Now a week later. I'm trying it to connect with my 13" MacBook Pro (mid 2014) and Is not starting at all. Hope they can replace it quick. Because It was wonderfull when it worked....
