    Extra Work Space & Improved PC Gaming Immersion

    |
    Posted .

    Selecting a monitor is tricky these days when there are so many budget options available. In this case, I think LG has created a good balance of quality, features, and price. I moved from a 32 inch monitor to this 34 inch ultra-wide (**See a visual comparison in the attached pictures**) This monitor is best equipped for work, or for PC gaming that provides the option to use the ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio. Be aware that neither XBOX One or Playstation 4 are compatible with the ultra-wide mode (as they don’t want to give certain players an advantage over those who can’t see the additional visuals on the far edges of the screen). The monitor does not have speakers, but does have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The included software disk does provide options to divide up the screen real estate into various options, but the average user will probably just appreciate having extra horizontal space for placing program windows side by side. When you fill the screen, it is incredibly immersive! Racing games are probably the most impressive as you are almost wrapped in the visuals of the car and the road around you. It is also a very good option for viewing security screens as multiple cameras can all be displayed seamlessly on one screen. There following are the reasons that I rated the screen at 4 stars instead of 5: - The stand is stationary and cannot be adjusted up or down. - The stand is not particularly stable, which means the monitor is fairly wobbly. If you bounce your leg, have a sit stand desk that you are moving frequently, or if something bumps your desk; you will very much notice the monitor shake. - The physical bezel is incredibly small, but the image does not display right to the edge of what appears to be the screen. There is about a quarter inch of “screen” that does not display any image. - The matte screen does a pretty good job of reducing reflections, but it also makes the image feel slightly flat and not bright and glossy like a HDTV image typically is. What initially excited me about having an ultra-wide monitor was the ability to watch movies in cinematic widescreen without having the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. BUT, this not as easy as I was hoping. Let me explain: It turns out that the aspect ratio of 21:9 (which is equal to 2.2:1) is actually a marketing term for the Ultra Widescreen aspect ratio of 64:27 or 2.370:1. Ultra WIdescreen is basically designed to display films that were recorded in CinemaScope or equivalent Anamorphic formats. Unfortunately, 21:9 is not included on Blu-Ray discs. The black bars at the top and bottom of the screen do not appear simply because your screen is not as wide as a theater’s screen. The black bars are actually a part of the 16:9 source image put onto the disc. Only high end Blu-Ray players are able to extract the middle rectangle that equates to the 21:9 image that we need to accurately fill this ultra-wide screen. It also turns out that movies are typically NOT filmed in ultra-wide screen. The average movie is filmed with an aspect ratio of 1.85:1. This is MUCH closer to 16:9 which equals 1.77:1. So, in order to determine if your source image will be a correct fit for this ultra-wide screen, you would first need to know what aspect ratio the video was filmed with: :::HOW TO DETERMINE THE ASPECT RATIO THAT A MOVIE WAS FILMED IN::: Look up the movie on IMDB.com Select the option for MORE. Under “DETAILS” you will select “Technical Specs” Then in the chart you will see the Aspect Ratio listed So, finding video that was filmed in true 21:9 or 2.3:1 can seem like a bit of a nightmare. Couple this with the fact that the average Blu-Ray & 4K Ultra High Def Blu-Ray players don’t have the option to output in 21:9. Instead they only allow the option of 16:9 and stretching to fit the ultra-wide screen. But, in the age of digital streaming, there is hope. Amazon’s Prime VIdeo service, YouTube, and Netflix (within a web browser) all provide the option to display in the ultra-wide 21:9 format. Otherwise, you will probably be viewing a 16:9 image that is stretched to fit this ultra-side screen (which is a stretch that is quite noticeable). ***Helpful Note*** 21:9 can also represent ratios of 12:5, 43:18, and 64:27 Overall, If your goal is to increase the immersion of PC games, or have the maximum amount of horizontal real estate while doing computer work - then I do recommend this monitor. If you do not care about having the most horizontal space, you can save a good amount of money by sticking with a regular monitor. Take a look at the attached picture of a standard ratio 32 inch monitor compared with this 34 inch ultra wide monitor. Be aware that the 32 inch screen costs literally half as much. The choice is yours. Choose what is best for your needs & enjoy!

    Great UltraWide Monitor

    |
    Posted .

    The monitor is excellent for anything you want to do. The price is a good deal too. I was using a 28" 4K 16:9 monitor and tried this one. They are the same height wise, but the Ultra-wide extra inches on the side make a big difference. At the default setting of 2560x1080 it looks like there should be more real estate available. Using a Nvidia 2070RTX one of the default settings is 2560x1440. You only get 60Hz vs 75Hz at this setting but the extra space is worth it. You may have to adjust some windows settings for it look correct at the 1440 setting, but once adjusted it looks great. This isn’t software DSR, but an option from the monitor. For regular desktop use, you have plenty of room to put programs side by side or in windows, 3/4 screen, etc. The included disk has a program that lets you divide up the screen as you see fit. See attached picture for modes. These are only for the programs on the computer screen, not other inputs. At 2560x1440 the 2070RTX has been breezing through games. Everything on high, and a much expanded field of view. You'll have to adjust many games to take advantage of the extra space. The screen has presets and you can do custom settings. The presets are okay and change the picture to adjust to what you are doing. From gaming, to work, to movie watching. But, going custom provides the best options. The presets can lock you out of certain settings or being able to adjust them. Custom lets you alter any setting as you see fit. There is an HDR emulation setting too. The presets are good, but you may want to change them depending on what you are doing. I hooked up a HD Blu-ray player and it looked as good as any TV. But, no HDR to test. Switching back and forth between HDMI ports is easy through center button/control stick on the bottom of the screen. This gives you access to all the monitor settings. It’s easy to navigate and adjust the options. The only downside to the monitor is displaying it. The included stand is not adjustable. I use a 100x100 VESA mount and it has worked for three other monitors with no issues. This monitor had a problem. The mounts are recessed and the head of my mount would not fit. Spacers worked out fine. You could have issues. They have an adapter, but if it's a standard VESA 100 mount you shouldn't need one. I’m going to stay with this monitor for now. At 2560x1440p the 2070RTX hasn’t struggled and the games look great. I’d say 4.5 stars if possible due to mounting issues, but there is nothing wrong with the display, it’s big and really expands your desktop. It is basically the same as having two monitors on your desk without the bezel between them.

    Something you never knew you'd need

    Posted .

    Many graphic cards made today have more than one output that you can connect to more than one monitor. Even the low-end Nvidia or AMD graphic card can drive two monitors without any problem (providing that it is run by a fast computer.) Have you ever had to use two monitors side-by-side to look at one thing while you are editing something else? Don't you wish there are times that it is just on one monitor and you basically (at least) split in half? Ultraviolet monitors were expensive and the past, but the prices have come down to a more affordable range for many people. This particular monitor made by LG (34WL500-B) is connected to your computer only with an HDMI connector. The manual states that you should not use any adapter that converts your signal (for example, from a DVI connector) to HDMI. For that reason, I did not try to do it. My graphic card is Nvidia GTX 1080 and when I bought it, it was almost top-of-the-line. I used it to connect to a 240 Hz monitor. This monitor has as stated much higher resolution of 2560 by 1080 pixels and at maximum refresh rate of 75 Hz. It also supports HDR (Windows 10 supports that now if your graphic card and monitor allows it.) The monitor weighs about 13 pounds without the stand, and the standard itself is about a couple of pounds. I think the stand is the weakest points because all you could do is tilt the monitor up and down. It does not go up or down nor can the screen be tilted sideways. I am a bit disappointed that I cannot make the screen go up other than having to put a thick book beneath the stand but I cannot make it lower. The default settings are acceptable. The driver comes on a CD disc but I was unable to find it on the LG website at https://www.lg.com/us/support/manuals-documents?customerModelCode=34WL500-B&csSalesCode=34WL500-B.AUS&category=CT10000030&subcategory=CT30000200 so be sure not to lose your disc. There are two components that you need for Microsoft Windows. The first one is the driver, the second one is called on-screen control. I have presented a few screen captures of what this monitor can be used for. I have a 4K Blu-ray drive and I played the movie passengers (with Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt) and it really does look good in 4K and HDR affects. (Using Power DVD ultra program.) However I believe strongly that most people may not buy this monitor to do that unless it is bought for a college student who lives in the dorm (as most movies look far better with a real 4K/HDR television with a proper settings) and since it doesn't have speakers built in, more hardware, i.e. speakers, will have to be bought. Viewing at full screen mode, you can't see a full screen with Netflix with Google Chrome. You need to run Windows Netflix app to do that. How about using it to play a game? I don't want to compare this to my other monitor which can run at 240 Hz (via the Display Port), however, at 75 Hz, it's good enough for most people. I installed and played System Shock II and it looked quite good. The response time was very acceptable. Since I am not a gamer, I use on a daily basis a couple of programs – one is Adobe FrameMaker and Corel Ventura Publisher. And each one looks great side-by-side. The screen control program can split the screen into even smaller sectors and one of the examples I am uploading shows one third of the screen playing a video. By the way there is no reflection at all because I believe the surface of the screen has the antiglare feature. The power button is on the bottom of the logo and other adjustments can be made there. It is best to read the manual first because this is such a unique but not too unusual piece of hardware. Here is a video of what OnScreen control can do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2svy-fqLUs If you said in front of the computer all day long – this may be something you never thought you needed. And during your down time, you certainly can play games with it. Just make sure your computer has a good graphic card and powerful enough CPU to drive it. If this were more expensive, I probably would just get two monitors instead, but the price now is reasonable for most people.

    Good monitor, poor stand craftsmanship

    |
    Posted .

    The new 34WL500-B is one of LG's new 34" Freesync monitors available at Best Buy. It is a 21:9 Ultrawide (2560 x 1080) 1080p IPS monitor with HDR. The LG official site states that this product is on the low end of 34" monitors that LG makes, so the price point is lower than the other models. This model comes with the monitor itself, an HDMI cable, 3-pronged power supply, installation CD, and warranty/instructions/other paperwork. The monitor comes with a 1 -year warranty which covers parts/labor. DISCLAIMER: I used this product with an HP OMEN gaming tower that is approximately 1 year old. PROS: ----------- * The sheer screen size is awesome. You will have a ton of real estate to work with regardless of gaming, watching videos, or other tasks. * Huge plus especially for people that work with massive Excel files or video editing programs. This allows that single window much more space to work. Other tasks such as web browsing and email doesn't offer a huge benefit except that you can look at both (split screen) at the same time. * Good color range. Great motion when gaming. Freesync aids in the play of quick-moving graphics, and I can tell the difference while playing Fortnite. * The software CD included with the monitor is convenient for quick display changes where you can split up parts of the screen in different formats. This is handy so it does not have to be done manually. * One single knob on the bottom of the monitor controls a multitude of functions; however, the main functions are power on/off and volume if you use the VOL OUT AUX on the back of the monitor. CONS: ----------- * The power plug was quite disappointing. It's a bigger-than-normal plug-in brick with 3 prongs and is only 5-ft long. This takes up more space at your power supply location. The cord itself could stand to be a few feet longer for routing purposes through an executive desk or similar. If the cord is not long enough, you will have to use an extension cord that can accept a 3-prong plug. Not the most convenient. * There is no cable management on the back of the monitor. It would be nice to have a loop or tie-down area for cables to be managed better. One option is to get double-sided velcro and tie the cables to the back stand, but that does not look very good either. If your monitor is facing a wall, this won't be an issue. * The monitor stand is very wobbly and rickety compared to all other stands I have had. It almost feels like it may break if you move it the wrong way too far. * The monitor cannot be moved up/down. The height "is what it is" unless you attach to a swing arm mount. You can rotate the angle of the screen somewhat (-5 to 15 degrees) but that does not help with viewing height, especially after long periods of using. Your neck will start to feel the effects of a tall screen depending on your chair vs desk height. * Only 2 HDMI inputs are allowed. For those with computers that don't have HDMI connections, a DVI option would be great. OTHER OBSERVATIONS: ----------------------------------- * Like most monitors, this one has a sleep (auto-off) feature so it does not have to be powered on/off each time the PC is turned off. * Like other "frameless" monitors, the picture on the screen does not go fully to the edge of the monitor itself. There is about a 1/4-inch black non-used portion that frames the inside of each edge. It would be more of an "infinity screen" if the picture extended to the edge of the bezel. * Watching videos can be hit or miss depending on the originating recording. You will most likely have black on the left/right sides of the monitor when watching full-screen because most videos aren't created in 21:9... most are closer to 16:9. Stretching a 16:9 video to full 21:9 will not make your picture better. CONCLUSION: =================== Overall, you get good bang for the buck with this 34-inch, 21:9 monitor. It's great for most applications including gaming. For work-at-home accountants and video editing peeps out there, this is the monitor for you. If there were a few more options and better workmanship on the construction of the stand, this monitor would get a near-perfect rating. The mere fact that it can't be raised or lowered is a huge minus as neck pain may be imminent for some people.

    Great Monitor . . . At First

    Owned for 1 year when reviewed.

    I bought this monitor for $300 in October of 2019. It worked wonderfully for about a year, offering a clear, bright picture and an ultrawide screen that made parts of the games I play into works of art. For the first year of this product's active life, I would have happily given this monitor a five star review. Unfortunately, in January of 2021, the monitor started going black every three minutes with an accompanying flicker. I tried every solution on the internet including checking the refresh rate, ensuring that my PC's drivers were updated, using the other HDMI port, using another HDMI cable, and switching out what was connected to the monitor from a Windows 10 PC to a Windows 7 laptop to my Sega Genesis Mini. I moved all wifi devices well away from the monitor as that was listed as a solution elsewhere. Nothing worked. After exhausting all options, I called LG's support and did a little more troubleshooting. The problem remained unsolved, and since my monitor is just a few months out of warranty, I was told that I'd have to pay $400 to get it fixed. I declined and am currently shopping for another monitor. It's disappointing in the extreme because my previous monitor was a smaller LG that still works and will be what I'm using in the interim. It's not as if the unit was ever abused or dropped; I take great care of my possessions. Every other monitor I have ever had, LG or not, has lasted for years, and I've never actually had a monitor go bad before. I recall being at Best Buy picking out this monitor and choosing between this one and another LG because my previous monitor was so good that I wanted another LG. However, between the lack of longevity of this unit and the idea of having to pay more to get the monitor fixed than what I originally paid for it, I don't have any brand loyalty left for LG. Maybe I just got a bad monitor and your experience may vary, but I'm disappointed, angry, and frustrated and can only give this monitor two stars. The attached picture is what I see when the monitor is "on."

    Due to COVID-19 I was required to work from home and I was getting a lot of headaches from eye strain from looking at the company's laptop screen and my two BENQ 19" monitors from the 90's. I replaced them with this huge monitor and what a difference. The colors are crisp, the refresh rate at @75Hz can be noticed right away. The brightness and balance are great out of the box and optional picture modes are great features. I work mostly with MS Office applications and I can fit up to 3 windows in this monitor which allows me to multitask more efficiently. I no longer feel eye strain and headaches after a work day using HDR mode. During off work hours I read the news and watch YouTube videos at high resolution. No complaints. I hooked it up to a my gaming PC with NVIDIA GTX 1070 at max settings and with gaming mode ON and FreSyn ON I was surprised of how well it handles FPS games like Modern Warfare. It gets a little to get used to the wide field of view but to me it was an advantage. I'm no hardcore gamer but my KDR improved from 1 to 2. The experience was unreal. On a PS4 I didn't like it, the monitor stretchers the image because it does not support this monitor resolution. Playing Blue-rays on Movie mode is like watching my Samsung LED TV, deep blacks and no blurring. The things I don't like is only has two HDMI connections, a DisplayPort would have been nice. The headset input is on the back of the monitor sucks, why not place it on the side or closer to the bottom edge of the monitor or have Bluetooth built in. This requires a headset with a large cord. I ended up just using a Bluetooth speaker and headset thru my PC. The sound was better coming from the PC anyways. Overall I recommend this monitor to get more work done and cut the clutter of having a 2 or 3 monitor set. Crossing fingers that it will last for years. 1 year warranty is not enough for the price range.

    Very wide indeed. Good resolution

    |
    Posted .

    This screen is really very wide. Very good for a lot of applications. Split screen is never the same when using this wide screen... It really works like 2 screens attached. The resolution is very good even for video and photos editing. The screen is very bright with full photo setup options. The control little "joystick" is kind of hard to manipulate but once you get used to it, it will be ok. It has 2 full HDMI inputs and one audio output (audio via HDMI) to connect to headphones or desktop speakers. Very good setup. Win10 plays well with the screen. No issues at all. The hardware setup is straight forward and very easy to mount. The only thing I don't really like about it is the power adapter type with the very short wire. I wish it was an inline power adapter. Easier to plug in any power strip. I did some electronic boards design using it (using Eagle PCB), it is really good. Wide screen is very useful allowing a lot of things to show on the screen. I do recommend it for any body who is looking for a wide screen to use in various computer works.

    Great display for multitasking

    |
    Posted .

    -= Display =- This display is a beauty to see! I constantly have multiple windows open and the ultrawide resolution of the LG 34WL500-B allows me to create an ideal layout for my workflow. Previously, I used two widescreen monitors (16:9) and while I don’t quite have the same screen real estate on the LG, there’s something about having everything on one screen that makes it feel more seamless. The monitor features a 2560×1080 resolution with a 5 ms response time which is suitable for gaming. The display also has a matte finish which helps reduce glare from lighting behind you. -= Setup and Connectivity =- The monitor has 2 HDMI inputs. There is no DVI or VGA connections. There is also a headphone jack on the back of the speaker for audio output delivered over the HDMI connection, but there are no built-in speakers. I was a little nervous that my aging Mac Mini (Late 2012) model would not be able to handle the resolution of this monitor. Unfortunately, I was not able to use the HDMI port on the Mac Mini itself. However, I was able to use a separate Active Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter (the keyword here is that it must be an “Active” adapter) to get the monitor’s native resolution as follows. - Connect the Active Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter to the Mac Mini’s DisplayPort (aka Thunderbolt) connection. - Then, use the HDMI cable (included with the monitor) to plug into the adapter and the monitor. - Make sure nothing is plugged into the Mac Mini’s HDMI port. It took me awhile to pinpoint this as my issue as it was preventing me from reaching the 2560×1080 resolution. - On your Mac, navigate to System Preferences, then Display. You should be able to set the Resolution to “Default” and the Refresh Rate to “60 Hertz” to reach an output of 2560×1080. -= Features =- There are no speakers on the monitor, but there is a headphone jack so you can plug in your own headphones to listen to any audio delivered over the HDMI connection. While the Active DisplayPort to HDMI adapter did deliver audio to the headphone jack, I was not able to control the volume on my Mac Mini; I needed to use the volume controls on the monitor. Speaking of the monitor controls, there is a small joystick underneath the center portion of the monitor. It’s a little tricky to use at first, but I quickly got the hang of it. I like that the control is hidden out of view. When the menu is not on the screen, pressing the joystick left and right will adjust the volume -= Overall =- The LG 34WL500 UltraWide monitor looks great and gives you enough screen real estate to work in two application at the same time. The monitor limits connectivity to just HDMI, so some older computers may need an additional adapter to reach the 2560x1080 resolution.

    Monitor finally arrived

    I work from home on the computer all day so I had been wanting to upgrade my monitor(s). I had 2) 27" so when one died, I decided to upgrade to a 43". I received and returned that one immediately as it was too large. My new monitor just arrived (3 days late but it finally arrived) and I love it. It's a perfect size but I neglected to notice on the specs it is not adjustable in height. If it can be mounted to my desk, that might resolve the issue however just using the stand, it's too high. With the stand, the bottom of the monitor to the desk is 5.75". For me, the ideal height would be 2.75". Does anyone know what mounting bracket would work best?

    I got this monitor for increasing productivity and not gaming so I don't really mind the relatively lower refresh rate (75). It comes with the HDMI cable so I was able to get started quickly with using this monitor for grad school. If you're trying to get a gaming monitor, I'm sure there are much better ones out there that are more economical. I knew this beforehand but I only wanted a large screen to multitask. I love the massive screen size (34"), but the stand is not adjustable so keep that in mind if you need some height adjustment. The screen tilts up and down a little. It does not come with a speaker or camera, so you might want to consider that too. It comes with an owner's manual CD about regulatory / safety precautions I'm sure you've seen enough of this monitor by now but I'll still add a few pictures.

    Added this monitor to an existing 3 monitor setup that was already using VGA and DMI and a jCreate adapter. Since this monitor uses only HDMI connections and my HP Envy doesn't have any I had to get a USB to HDMI adapter (Plugable brand) that uses DisplayLink drivers that rendered my jCreate adapter useless. So although I now still have 3 monitors, the LG 34" ultrawide using their OnScreen Control PC application where I can split the screens in several ways, I end up with 4 screens in essence. I'm a sales guy online & on phone all day so the 4 screens help to bounce around to different apps and internet pages without having to Alt-Tab to move back and forth.

    This is a great ultra-wide monitor. The on screen control works. I had to download this by the way. I bought a second one so I can view more screens (4 at a time). And it works perfectly. What a joy! Takes multi-tasking on another level. Working remotely has never been better. If you need do a lot of systems monitoring or spreadsheets, and do occasional movies, this is for you. If you’re a gamer or passionate with high performance, look elsewhere. LG has that, just not this one. Price is just about right too, for the boost of productivity it can give you. It pays for itself.

    No Need for Dual Monitors

    |
    Posted .

    This monitor is a replacement for a dual monitor setup that I have been using for a while, and although that setup did work, this is a much better solution. It is, as I found during unboxing, a very large widescreen monitor, the size actually surprising me somewhat. It takes up much less desk space as the dual monitors but is still very large. I love the fact that it has two HDMI inputs that allow work screens and DEX from my phone on separate inputs. I was a little dismayed that it did not have DisplayPort inputs or others as that is the output of my computer, but a quick cable order fixed that. The software included allows for all the multi-screen displays and works really well. The resolution is a little low at 2560 by 1080 but the HDR mode helps with that. I didn't really push the FreeSync capabilities as it is on a work computer, so I assume they work well. This is a true WIDECREEN monitor and will more than fill any dual creen monitor mode that you might have. With a little better resolution and a few different inputs it would be close to perfect. It is still a great monitor just with a few limitations I wasn't expecting. Good Shopping.

    I purchased 20 to setup our new office and besides looking great on everyone's desk they remove the need for a second monitor. This equates to less cabling and more productivity. Our modern office layout called for simplicity and functionality. We achieved that with the help of these monitors. Pros: Large screen size and wide format allows for 2-3 windows being open on the same screen and viewing them all at once. Simple setup and clean front and rear profiles. They are also great for watching videos or zoom meetings because they allow you to use a portion of the screen to look at emails or documents pertaining to the meeting. Cons: for some purchasing 2 monitors for the same or lower price might be a better deal. It really depends on the application.

    Wow! Very Wide Screen!

    |
    Posted .

    OK, this was not something I really needed since I already had a 26" monitor that was only a couple of years old. However, when I saw this product, I had to give it a try. I use this monitor in my home office, so it is used exclusively for work, so I can't speak to whether it would be good for gaming or not. That being said, I can't imagine the awesome field of vision would be a bad thing if you were to use it for that. With this wide screen, it can easily have two of three apps side by side and still be able to read each one easily. It works really well for comparing documents and spreadsheets. I have a similar 34" monitor at work, but that one is curved, whereas this one is flat. Since I have tried both, I prefer the curved display as it 'surrounds' you, while the flat one does require more head turning to see from one side of the screen to the other. Not a deal breaker and may be more personal preference since I am used to the curve now. Overall, love the wide screen and would recommend it.

    I love this screen. Not sure if it’s the computer (MacBook Air purchased 2019, updated)... but the screen adjusts the apps/images so you can have a lot of them open at the same time (I guess also because the screen is so big). Obviously, I’m not a tech person but this allows me to see everything at once and is easier on my eyes for 12-hour shifts. It does wobble a bit and the stand is not adjustable (up or down).

    100% satisfied. I use a laptop and had two monitors set up to use with it, but that meant a hub and three monitors was putting miles of wasted mouse moving. This one monitor replaced my two others and got rid of tons of wires and is much more efficient. My Remote Desktop doesn’t like the split screen functionality but I just run that on the laptop and all my other programs on this. Side by side excel documents are soooo much easier to use with this. Love it!
