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

Colour accuracy ; Low brightness levels

If you’re a casual or competitive gamer looking to spend less than £500 on an ultrawide monitor, I don’t think you’ll find many that compete with the LG 34UC79G. I recommend it.

LG 34UC79G 34-inch Ultra-Wide FreeSync Monitor Review


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", and recently 38" screens; vertical resolutions ranging from...

High contrast ; Out-of-box accuracy ; 144Hz ; Excellent blur-reduction ; Ghost-free overdrive ; panel response ; Low input lag ; Styling ; OSD joystick ; Value

None that affect gaming or general use performance

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.

AMD FreeSync enabled. Speedy refresh rate. Game-friendly features.

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...

The LG 34UC79G-B IPS LCD is a good curved 34-inch ultrawide monitor with very wide viewing angles and decent picture quality. Its 144 Hz refresh rate and FreeSync support make it particularly well suited for gaming, but its wide aspect ratio is also...

Wider than average viewing angle ; High 144 Hz refresh rate is great for gaming ; FreeSync support

Could be brighter ; Cloudy blacks with visible backlight bleed
