9 Reasons For

Owner Reviews Are Excellent

On average, based on 7 owner reviews this PC screen has a brilliant overall owner rating.

Best Seller

The 34UM88 is a popular choice of PC screen according to Amazon sales data.

Nice Design

One customer who reviewed the product thought it was good looking. A few weeks ago Techradar.com said on Techradar “9 aspect ratio display produces gorgeous images” in their LG 34UM88 review.

LG PC Monitors Have Good Reviews

LG is one of the better rated flatpanel monitor brands according to average reviews from owners and experts, and LG also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on recently released medium monitors.

It may also be worth considering one of the other LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including the Asus PG348Q ($1,099.99), the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1, or the Acer CB281HK ($372.76) which has better reviews.

Two HDMI Ports

The LG 34UM88 is a two HDMI port PC screen. Most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the 34UM88 have between one and three HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

3440 X 1440 Graphics Resolution

The LG 34UM88 has a maximum resolution of 3440 x 1440. That's over two times the resolution of a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) flatpanel monitor, which is the most frequently found resolution. The resolution of all medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months ranges from 640 x 350 to 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Color Gamut

The smallest color gamut of medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 34UM88 is 68% and the largest is 110%. At 99 percent, the LG 34UM88 has a fairly large color gamut compared to most of the other latest medium monitors.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The LG 34UM88 is quite shallow (only 49.2 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec LCD screens that have been available for the last year. The shallowest PC display that came out around the same time as the 34UM88 is 7mm deep and the deepest is 610mm.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Not Robust

One customer considered that it was not well made. Techradar.com wrote in their review of the LG 34UM88 on expert website Techradar in November “Because we don't know everything there is to know about the LG 34UM88 ultra-wide monitor, we can't form a solid preliminary opinion”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The LG 34UM88 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other LCD screens that are a similar age to the 34UM88.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker including the XG270HU ($369.99), or the Predator XB271HU ($628.99) both from Acer or the AOC AG271QX ($499.99).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 34UM88 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other new comparable spec LCD screens are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Acer Predator XB271HU ($628.99) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the 34UM88, the LG 34UM88 does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this PC screen and we think the Philips 272B7QPTKEB which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most similar spec LCD screens that are a comparable age to the 34UM88 do not have an integrated card reader. The LG 34UM88 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment

At only 120 millimeters, the LG 34UM88 has a quite low maximum height adjustment compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors. The maximum height adjustments of medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the 34UM88 range from 4.3mm to 510mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Medium monitors that are a similar age to the 34UM88 have weights of between 2.6g and 21kg. The LG 34UM88 is quite heavy (6.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec PC monitors.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

Across all the flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 34UM88 the widths range from 370mm to 900mm. At 829.9 millimeters, the LG 34UM88 is very wide compared to most of the other recently released LCD screens.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other 829.9mm wide LCD screens and we think the LG 34UM68-P ($349.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are not worried about having a wider width then you might also want to look at the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1 (827.5mm), or the Asus PG348Q ($1,099.99) (829mm) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Slow Response Time

The average response time of medium monitors that have been available for the last year is 5.2ms, and the response times range from 1ms to 20ms. When compared to other latest medium monitors that we have checked the response time of, the LG 34UM88's response time of 14 milliseconds is one of the slowest.
