Perfect for gamers, low ppi isn't a factor as the 144hz is much nicer to game on. Great price and great colours!

The screen itself is perfect for gaming, no ghosting on the fast response time setting and haven't felt the need to use the 1ms ULMB mode. I much prefer the 144hz screen and price over the 100hz 1440p monitors.
I haven't really noticed the lower ppi, i sit about 2 feet from my monitor and i can't see the pixels unless i really try.
This is a monitor for gamers, not for content creators, the colours are amazing but content creators would prefer a higher ppi, however for gaming, this monitor is perfect!

Good for games, disgrace of LG.

It`s very good monitor for game with very bad driver (after instllation you can`t read white on black), very bad color profile (wich take with driver) and degraded (in last version) soft. Also my instance has a strong color temperature unevenness along the screen's length. In fact - two vertical yellow stripes on white field. But its advantages overcome these shortcomings. IMHO.

Amazing Gaming Monitor would highly Recommend

Purchased this a few Weeks ago even with my Current Lack luster PC of a Core 2 Duo and GTX 650 TI it Looks great playing games on it feels like your inside the game which is just what i Wanted and Movies are great as well as Most support the 21:9 aspect ratio.

Currently dont have my New Ryzen/Vega system built yet so not using to its full Potential i.e Freesync/144hz currently using the supplied HDMI cable and the Highest i can get is 100hz so think you need to use the DP for higher.

Definitely a must get If you enjoy gaming/Movies as much as me :)

Excellenct Screen for everything

I recently purchased this screen as an upgrade to my current dual 16:10 monitor setup. I must say you will not be dissapointed! The color accuracy is brilliant, the 144hz make gaming look incredibly smooth coupled with my 1060 and the resolution is fantastic, for university work and for gaming this monitor is all round fantastic and the resolution is brilliant, Overclockers UK have provided a great product and service here and the screen arrived the next day.

Additionally, I play a lot of CSGO and Battlefield 1 and this monitor just really makes these games so much more immersive and enjoyable. I highly recommend this to anyone looking at getting into ultrawides for both productivity and/or gaming. You won't find anything better

Good Display

I purchased one of these panels last week.
The current monitor prices are insane and i had a difficult choice to make between higher resolution, refresh rate, screen size and aspect ratio.

I went for a higher refresh rate and screen size and ended up with this screen.

Overall the pixels on this screen are 0.031 mm larger than my previous screen and although you can tell the difference it isn't bad.

The compromise on resolution is worth it for the larger screen size and refresh rate. Also 21x9 is amazing and great for gaming especially with freesync.

I would recommend this screen to anyone​ who prioritizes gaming, it also isn't bad for productivity. The only down side is the resolution.

Great screen - Would highly recommend

This wasn't the first ultrawide screen I have tried but it's the one I have been most happy with. Just to explain...

I originally had an iiyama Prolite GB2773HS which is a 27" 144hz monitor. It is now quite old but it served me well.

Deciding it was time to change, I first tried an Acer Predator Z35 (Not bought from Overclockers). I had the screen for about 3 days at which point I decided I just couldn't stand the design of it and although when playing games it couldn't be faulted. The colour and contrast of the screen weren't great out of the box although I'm sure with a bit of fiddling, it could be improved dramatically.

After sending it back I decided to try the LG34UC98. I'm not the world's biggest gamer although I enjoy playing Battlefield or World of Warships for an hour or two in the evenings and at weekends. I had hoped that the 60hz maximum refresh rate of this screen wouldn't dent my gaming enjoyment too much but quickly realized that going from 144hz to 60hz was just too much of a compromise. The higher resolution of this screen (3440x1440) also killed the frame rates. My PC isn't the latest and greatest but my GTX1070 really struggled. The final nail in the coffin for this screen was the experience of using this screen in the windows environment. I honestly don't know how people comfortably use a 13440x1440 resolution screen in Windows. All the icons and desktop buttons are so tiny. I did turn up the dpi which helped a lot but this in turn messed up all the layouts of the websites I edit in Dreamweaver.

After sending this screen back, I thought I would try one last screen and I am very glad I did.

The design of the LG UC79G is far more subtle and attractive. It has a sensible stand that feels rock solid and the design of the stand made it much easier to hide the wires.

The screen itself was much better to look at than the two previous screens. I don't understand why reviewers concern themselves about the lower number of pixels (2560x1080) as the desktop environment all looks crystal clear and sharp. I did need to fiddle with the colours and contrast a little but I now have it exactly how I like it.

The gaming experience is excellent as well. I haven't bothered turning on the option within the screen's menu to lower the response time as it runs so well at 144hz on the standard screen setting. I can't say I notice any input lag at all and it goes without saying that the extra width is more immersive.

The only thing I wouldn't necessarily recommend this screen for is any professional video creator or photographer that needs to be pinpoint accurate with colours and contrast. For everyone else, I'd recommend it.

On a separate note. Overclockers have used DPD courier service to deliver my screens to Northamptonshire. They are a great courier who send an email the morning of delivery giving a 1hr delivery slot. It helps you to plan your day without having to wait in all day.

Overclockers themselves have also been faultless. Will certainly add them to my top 3 online retailers.
