    Awesome monitor for a great price

    Got this on sale so I can’t really complain about the price. The monitor itself is pretty awesome, currently using it as a monitor for my pc. Only taking one star off because it doesn’t come with built in speakers, granted it’s meant to be used as a pc monitor so I guess they assume you already have something set up for sound but still it would have been nice if it included even some small built in speakers. But other than that this monitor is pretty great and met all my expectations.

    great for anything productivity related like email or spreadsheets, also has worked great for games, videos, movies, etc...all around I think a fantastic form factor and product especially if you can catch it on sale. The only cons I have found since purchase is if you are using both hdmi inputs with different devices the monitor doesn't auto switch to the active device. Other than that no real problems with the unit at all. I actually just purchased a 2nd one (the next step up one) for a high end desktop build I just completed.

    Big screen, great picture

    Great crisp clean display. Display starts up and recognizes the computer signal very quickly, which not all monitors will do. Because this screen is so wide, the content on the far edges of the screen is harder to see because of the viewing angle out there. Takes some getting used to. We ended up going for a curved screen which was a lot more money. I would recommend this display if you have a deep desk and can place the display at an arm's length or greater from you.

    This monitor is being utilized in an home office environment. At times we needed multiple windows to be opened at the same time to answer client questions. The real estate is sufficient for doing this and it allows for email to be open at the same time as our business-related software. The key piece is we can reference both items at the same time without the need to alt-tab or close things. We are coming from a 17 inch monitor to this.

    The monitor is easy to install and comes with software to configure setup. The screen can auto split into 2-3-4 independent screens. Giving you a multi-monitor experience when you want and a widescreen that works well with graphics, games, and text. I work on projects that require a lot of referencing material. With this monitor I can have everything right there, side by side making work flow. If you are looking for a multi-monitor solution take a look at this one, its well work your examination

    Large clear screen

    This is a nice, large, clear screen. I purchased one brand new and returned to purchase another one, an open box version, for my daughter so she would leave mine alone. Best Buy made one error in listing the open box item as excellent condition with all of its original parts. Unfortunately the item arrived with a missing HDMI cord. They have since replaced the cord so they corrected the problem. I would highly recommend the screen. It looks good and works well.

    Wider is Better? ;-)

    Okay everyone, I.T. Manager SteveO here again. In my quest to find the perfect monitor I'm trying out LG's 34" wide screen. It takes a bit of getting use to, but my people in finance are starting to buy into the size for the simple reason they can easily view 2 spreadsheets at the same time on "1" monitor. This is not a dual screen friendly group, so the idea of 1 monitor that is large enough to display 2 large spreadsheets seems to fit their needs. Again like so many monitors today... no sound.

    I’ve tested out this monitor in various ways (work, gaming, programming, movie watching, etc) and I must say the picture is great no matter what you are doing. I like that you can switch the input or split screen without having to unplug cables. Putting it together was easy. Comes with an HDMI cable. No complaints yet!

    Great Monitor for Work

    I purchased this monitor for my work as I was using two separate 23" monitors side-by-side. This monitor is higher resolution that allows me to get 2 to 3 open windows beside each other to do my work. The resolution is pretty good for Word documents, email, etc. I don't game on this monitor but do watch videos and the resolution is fine. Price was great on black friday sale too.

    Good Monitor for the price

    This monitor is a game changer if you primarily work with a laptop. The size is perfect. My only con is that the stand is not very sturdy...good thing the monitor screen is sturdy! If you move the monitor slightly, you may find yourself trying to catch it before it falls off. Other than that flaw, the monitor is worth the money. I suspect that I will be in the market for a wall bracket.

    Flawless well-priced ultrawide monitor

    I recently needed a new monitor, and I found this to be quite fit for the job. The ultrawide display and resolution makes for a very nice viewing angle, and because of the IPS display, this means you won't be getting those washed out colors that you would normally see on TN panels. Very good value for the money, and recommended if you want something a little bit wider than the average screen, without breaking the bank.

    "Big" Screen Monitor

    I would have given this a five star review... I absolutely love the size of this screen... However the screen has started flickering like a strobe light affect. My IT guy has looked at it and this point cannot figure out why. I will be contacting Best Buy this weekend to see if they have a solution. It was hooked up almost a month ago and I was gone for two weeks, so I know it's not from overuse. LOL

    Lovin' the wide monitor

    I replaced two monitors with this single ultra wide monitor. Plug and play no issues on my 8-year-old laptop running Windows 10. Especially great for financial applications and music editing. Gives my studio a slightly less cluttered look. If your system can handle it, you might prefer a higher resolution and you may prefer a curvy screen. But this one works just fine for me for less money. Absolutely no complaints here!

    I’m using this monitor with a Apple MacBook Pro 2017 w/ Touch Bar. It works great with my MBP. I use my MBP for editing photos and videos. Monitor has so much real estate, it makes editing videos much easier because of all the room. For what it’s worth, I am pleased with the quality. It does the job

    Almost bought 2-24" but after seeing a single screen and the options to shrink screen this was a no brainer. Great for CAD and other office work. Looked so good on desk , 5-6 other co-workers have bought this same model to replace the 2 company issued 19"s. Stand could be higher, but it is acceptable. I had to buy a DP to HDMI cable, as no HDMI on my cpu. Hdmi to Hdmi is included in this box.

    This is a top of the line monitor, in features, size and performance. The extra wide screen was not my first choice and now I use it constantly. Having essentially two monitors side by side with just the swipe of a mouse is extremely convenient. The monitor is crisp and sharp and the price is amazing for what you get. This is something I have to stare at all day and for the first time, I'm enjoying the experience. Highest recommendation.

    Piece of Junk

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I would give this piece of junk 0 stars if it was an option. The screen lasted me 6 weeks then died. Best Buy will not return it because it is past their 15 day window, and now the LG warranty program will take at least 3 weeks for me to ship it back to them, fix the junk, ship it back, probably for it to break again. BUYER BEWARE!!

    We got it on sale and it's really worth it! Screen is clear and really wide and you can't really complain on the price tag when we got this! So far it helped him to get his homework a lot easier for having two windows running in one and having an extra monitor to spare. So far no complaints from him and just very satisfied with his needs.

    I had a choice to get two monitors or one big one. I opted for the single and it is huge. It does take a little getting used to. It's great for games, I play WoW and this is a huge improvement on my old 20" screen. It's also really nice for schoolwork; I can have Word open on one half and have the other half for research without having to constantly min/max my windows.

    This is a very good monitor. It is very easy to use and quite flexible when it comes to gaming and multitasking. It has beautiful clarity and the lighting is highly adjustable. It gives you plenty of screen real estate. I was able to game with no screen tearing or shuddering. The power saving function is an added bonus. It really was worth the buy.
