In addition to portable gadgets, here and there we review a few interesting monitors every year. We don't test them thoroughly, but view them just refer to it as the upcomming technology that advances. A little more than a year we had LG 29EA93 LG, one of the first 21:9 monitors in 29-inch diagonal. As writing this, in front of us proudly stands the revolutionary LG 34UC97 (with current price about $1.300). Diagonal has grown from 29 to 34 inches, and with it has grown the resolution - this monitor has 3440x1440 pixels. Behind the figures themselves and specification hides display technology that surpasses all competitive widespread (except OLED, where LG also dominates, but this technology is still too expensive for widespread commercial use). We're talking about the IPS technology (In-plane switching).
I am curved
Every new model that we review looks better than the previous one. The last one we had was LG 34UC97. Precisely stylish, it has a massive chrome metal stand, while the rear looks very elegant. All connectors are covered. Edge around the screen is almost nonexistent, while the fact that it is courved gives it a James Bond style.
Sharpness of the IPS panel is amazing. While watching the icons on the screen you will feel as if they were three-dimensional. Huge difference is seen in video processing and image processing, and we assume that it works equally comfortable in professional programs such as AutoCAD. As for more joyful purposes, this monitor will be also ideal for watching movies where it is displayed full movie format (21:9) with no edge on the top or bottom. With a 5ms response time we tried it for gaming where its curvature looks faviorable.
LG is the largest manufacturer of IPS panels in the world and this monitor is like the crown of this technology. Technology that was created in the 1980s improve the deficiencies of TN matrix (panel).
