This season is probably one of the best times to go hunting for devices you have been craving the entire year. And one of the best electronic deals we found is the LG 34UC79G-B that, for a very limited time, is 42% off.
As the name suggests, this is a 34-inch curved gaming monitor with an ultra-wide aspect ratio of 21:9. It also has a refresh rate of 144 Hz and 1ms blur reduction just like the AGON AG322QCX.
What these means is you will get that perfect motion clarity, accuracy, and precision you crave. The blurring and ghosting are reduced to a highly insignificant level so you can advance your games better.
Also, the LG 34UC79G-B comes with the AMD FreeSync, which promises to provide you with seamless and fluid movements without the dreaded tearing and stuttering.
This gaming monitor also has a pre-installed Crosshair feature, which ups your first-person shooting skills by a few notches. You just place the striking point in the center and watch yourself target more enemies with enhanced accuracy.
Lastly, the LG 34UC79G-B has advanced gaming features that help you see objects even in the darkest scenes just by activating the Black Stabilizer. Then, there’s also the Dynamic Action Sync so your games stay smooth.
Sadly, though, and this might be a deal breaker, this gaming monitor doesn’t support 4K. But for its price, this is definitely a bargain.
And these people agree:
Great monitor for gaming and movies, wide format really makes for a great immersion and games buttery smooth at 144Hz as long as you have video card to handle high FPS. Its not so great for desktop usage. Font is rather jagged and blurry. Its worse than my 7 yr old 28″ Samsung LCD TV/Monitor. On the plus side color accuracy and contrast is much better. It does have some light bleed in 3 corners but nothing i can’t live with, only noticeable on a full black screen. I’ve got one with no dead pixels, 1ms response time is pointless, with that feature enabled monitor drops brightness by what it seems like 100%, and picture becomes dull and lifeless. But honestly I’ve never noticed any ghosting without it so its a moot point. I have it set with fast response time and 144Hz and unlike other reviewers I don’t have any flickering or artifacts.—Darth
At the time of writing this review, the display retailing for less than $599 USD. Toss in the fact you have a 34″ IPS panel (21:9), 144hz refresh rate and a pretty solid resolution which helps it achieve those high refresh rates… It is pretty much one of the most competitively designed displays on the market right now. For me personally, the resolution is perfect since not all the software I will use will scale well with a higher resolution and 2560×1080 is overall less taxing on your graphics card.—UberTechie2000
Right off the bat, I can tell you that you are not going to find another IPS monitor with 144Hz, in an Ultrawide format for $700. Not gonna happen. At least not yet anyways. I have searched and searched, comparing those with truer color, 4K resolutions, and smaller Ultrawides and this one monitor is the best of all – to an extent.—G.Shadow
