LG 34UC79G review: The most affordable ultrawide gaming monitor


Ultrawide monitors are generally expensive, but the LG 34UC79G sits at a competitive price point

144Hz refresh rate ; Responsive monitor ; An affordable ultrawide monitor

LG 34UC79G-B


The 34-inch LG 34UC79G-B, a slightly curved, ultra-wide monitor designed for gameplay, offers plenty of ports and gamer-friendly settings.

Slightly skewed greens. No speakers. Stingy warranty.

Conclusion At $699.99, the LG 34UC79G-B is a great deal if you're looking to do your gaming on an extra-wide, extra-large screen. Its subtle curve keeps you close to the action, and its IPS panel delivers strong grayscale performance and wide viewing...
