34UC97 34" 3440x1440 IPS WideScreen Super-Wide Curved LED Monitor

21:9 Curved UltraWide QHD (3440*1440) display offers visual comfort with 2.4 times more visual information at one time than a Full HD monitor. And also, the QHD resolution’s 1440p vertical height allows you to use more vertically than a 29 inch 21:9 monitor.

IPS’s 178’ wide viewing angles, close to 180’, allow you to view the screen clearly without distortion. Also, the Curved IPS provides an immersive viewing angle covering the entire viewing angle around your range of vision.

You are guaranteed an immersive artwork by perceiving the same color as a subject on display or print through a sRGB over 99% colourspace and IPS’s accurate colour expression.

34UC97 provides two Thunderbolt2 ™ ports to directly connect a Mac PC and Pegasus2 storage directly to transmit data more than four times faster, than a USB 3.0. As a result, there is no concern of slow transmission from using a USB or HDMI connection. You can connect to various devices with the two HDMI and two USB 3.0 ports, and a Display Port. And, If you have a Mac, you can connect directly to the 34UC97 via Thunderbolt 2™, which transmits data more than four times faster than USB 3.0.

Using MaxxAudio® technology you will experience deeper bass and crystal clear highs. Equipped with two 7w internal speakers and MaxxAudio® technology, the 34UC97 provides cinema surround- like sound, allowing you to enjoy movies without any extra external speaker or sound output equipment.

So beautiful, but there's a but...

After a fair bit of research into various 4K and superwide screens, I settled on this curved LG to fulfil two roles; professional image making and gaming. The monitor itself is stunning, featuring a low profile chrome surround, stylish back and a very elegant stand. The screen has a semi-matt finish which in my opinion is the best kind, and there are two speakers tucked underneath, although they won

VESA Mount For Free

The VESA Mount is Free from Lg... All you have to do is contact them upload a proof of purchase and they will send you one of the bespoke VESA mount for free... (you cant buy one)

that said I couldn't wait to get my hands on one of these, and when it turned up it took me no time at all to set it up and clear my desktop of all its junk, sadly there was a backlight problem only half the screen was lit up, imagine how my heart sunk... but I can say that what I did see was a treat the monitor looks great on the desktop and the half screen that I did see was worth every moment I spent with it.

I still tested it with games and movies, sharp graphic and fantastic colours no bad pixels like I said my heart sunk at the backlight issue so I am sending it back to Overclockers uk who were sympathetic to the issue and are on the ball for my return of this product, none in stock so I have ordered the um95-p from Amazon and may reconsider a curved version again at a later stage (when the price drops).

don't let this incident put you off buying one it really is a treat because of my impatience I have ordered the um95-p I desire the monitor so much I will take flat or curved at the moment and my Amazon purchase is down to price, the 97-p is


VESA Mount? No.

Anyone planning to get this needs to know there is no VESA mount - despite the description here and elsewhere. That's unhelpful, if not misleading, and for me (work usage) I'm thinking it needs to be returned for this reason. Otherwise, it's a great monitor, but the stand just tilts a bit (pretty useless) though it looks smart. I've searched for a retro-fit solution, but there just aren't any mounting holes, so it would have to somehow work VESA into the stand mount - which doesn't seem feasible.

Real shame, and naughty of LG and their suppliers.


34UC97 - Wow!

I received the screen on Tuesday 4th November and since then I have not stopped smiling!

This is a truly magnificent screen.

Easy set-up - everything included

The curve is more subtle than I expected - and very welcome.

Working large Excel data tasks is a joy.

Pin sharp resolution, the stand is quality and the unit is great to look at.

it is multi-task screen perfection.


The Cheshire cats smile is not as wide a

After weeks of waiting for the UK release of this monitor Christmas came early yesterday.

It is a rare bit of tech that gets you excited. This monitor seized my attention from the moment I saw the Linus review the unbelievably curvy wide screen was a huge draw.

I'm not a gamer, I'm an excel data junky. Spreading the view across the screen gives you an altogether fresh perspective. Such a delight.

As a quick side note, tracking the parcel delivery by DPD is like watching Santa make his Christmas Eve stocking run, but I digress...

Opening the well packaged monitor was a pleasure. Making sure to use the curved cushion provided the stand attached with a double set of hex bolts at the top and bottom of the monitor. Quick and easy at this stage I had not seen the monitor face on. Having cleared a Rediculously wide space on my desk I was ready to launch the beast.

Power brick plugged in and the supplied display port snapping neatly into sockets in the rear of the monitor it was fire up time.

Sitting in-front of the mat black display a reach under to tweak the button and the menu popped up allowing me to select display port as the source the screen woke up, super bright, crisp and sharp.

Drivers loaded and split screen software loaded (2 cd roms) the sheer scale of the on screen real estate started to sink in.

After a day working with the monitor I am delighted. The screen is pin sharp. 1440p is a perfect balance of detail and crisp.

I have turned down the contrast a little that is all I had to do.

The curve is more subtle than I anticipated. But it is essential! I find myself sizing a resizing the open windows to optimise the activity - but that is quite fun.

The only downside so far... is screen sharing. When you share the screen it creates bars top and bottom, however you can get round this by sharing the application as opposed to the screen.

The upside is seeing other peoples screen is a joy.

Love this monitor soooo much


amazing monitor.

I picked this up today,having waited almost patiently.Im not a wealthy man so spending this much money is not taken at all lightly.I like my gaming,watch a lot of films and do a bit of photograph work so i thought id maybe like the uc97.I have read lots of reviews of the flat version and ips glow being a problem for a lot of people and was hoping it wouldnt plague the curved screen.Im coming from a dell 27 inch ips and although not completely light bleed free,it never bothered me.This has even less.Almost none at all.
Games have never looked better,colour in photos looks really natural and films look awesome.
Im using 2 inno gtx 780s in sli and still getting really good frame rates with detail turned up.
Lets face it,its stupid money but for me,its worth it.absolutely love this.
