    While I purchased this online at a substantial discount due to a perfect storm of sales, I was still worried before it arrived; could it possibly be good enough to justify the cost? The answer: yes. Refresh rate is good, lag and judder are imperceptible, and the colors are absolutely out of this world. The curve adds substantial immersion, and the width means that you don't need to go with a two or three monitor setup with bezels in the middle of your field of view. The built-in speakers are actually passable, too, although you'll get better sound out of a separate setup. The stand is solid and extremely adjustable, meaning that you position the monitor comfortably and with confidence. All in all, I'm very happy with it.

    This is an awesome monitor. If you want to jump into the ultrawide game, this is the way to go. Going 1440p is the best decisions I've ever made. For those wondering, this is the same panel as the Dell U3417W, which is more expensive (make sure you price match). I previously tested the Dell, but it had worse contrast and backlight bleed than the LG. Either way, you can't go wrong with this monitor. Can't say it enough. Don't forget to price match! It's a great Best Buy perk.

    Before I used an ultra wide screen monitor, I wouldn't have thought I needed one. Then I got a job where we had ultra wide screens. When I got another job that required me working from home, the first thing I did was research ultra wide screens becauseI couldn't imagine going back to an average size. All of my research pointed to this one. It was pricey, but I'm glad I got it. I can't imagine using anything else. It's amazing and immersive. Love, love, love it.

    It is one of the best monitors I have ever used to date. I have used over 12 different monitors over the last 5 years and can say for curtain that this is the best one. The only thing about this monitor that could be considered meh is the pixel density. Knowing the fact you have to have your nose touching the monitor in order for you to see what I am talking it is negligible in my opinion.

    I ordered this item on the 25th with a guaranteed delivery on the 29th....it didn't arrive until july 5th, no worries. Item arrived defective, the panel was going out and had a very bad flickering image on black and white screens even when nothing was connected to it.

    This monitor performs just like I expected it to do. Which was a high bar. I have not played any games but for my work needs it made for an easy transition from using two monitors. I am able to have three windows open side by side.

    I was concerned that the picture would be distorted or that I would truly not be able to split the screen but was pleasantly surprised the picture was amazing and the screen allows you to work off of two different programs at the same time. Would definitely recommend.
