12 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The reviewer at Gamezoom.net endorse this medium monitor and have given it their "Recommended" award.

Good Expert Reviews

On average, based on two expert reviews from sites including gamezoom.net and newesc.pt the average expert rating of this PC display is 85 out of 100.

LG Has Good PC Display Reviews

Based on 3,264 user and expert reviews, LG has good reviews for its LCD screens. LG also has good reviews specifically within its medium monitors range.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors that came out around the same time as it.

Alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper PC screen such as the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] or you might consider a higher scoring PC screen such as the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG 34UC88 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the 34UC88.

There are a number of other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price], or the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the AOC AG271QG[plb_3668603_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

The LG 34UC88 has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle (178 degrees) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months. The vertical viewing angles of newly released PC monitors range from 15° to 180°.

Chart Edit

Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

With a horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees, the LG 34UC88 has a quite wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other PC displays that were launched in the last 12 months. The narrowest horizontal viewing angle of LCD screens that were released around the same time as the 34UC88 is -5° and the widest is 180°.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Display Diagonal

When compared to other flatpanel monitors that came out in the last 12 months, the LG 34UC88's display diagonal of 87 centimeters is one of the biggest. Across all the new similar spec PC displays the screen sizes range from 49cm to 690cm, and the average display diagonal is 68cm.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption When Off

The power consumptions when off of new PC displays range from 0.005W to 350W. With a power consumption when off of only 0.3 Watts, the LG 34UC88 has one of the lower power consumptions when off amongst PC screens of this age.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Audio Power

When compared to other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 34UC88 that we have checked, the LG 34UC88's RMS rated audio power of 14 Watts is one of the highest. Across all the comparable spec LCD screens that came out around the same time as the 34UC88 the RMS rated audio powers range from 0.5W to 20W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 4.8W.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most recently released similar spec PC displays are not 3D compatible. The LG 34UC88 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Acer Predator XB271HU[plb_3406684_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most comparable spec PC screens that were released in the last 12 months do not have a built-in camera. The LG 34UC88 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to consider the LG 27UD68-W[plb_3304971_price] (615mm), or the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] (827.5mm) which is also cheaper.

Heart rate sensor is new design
Price is very challenging in the smartband market
Design is modest
OLED Screen
Battery Life as claimed is very good with 30 days autonomy
Only available in black
It does not have many extras
The print quality is good, but won't blow you away, especially at around 50 cents a print
Likewise, the digital photos can't compete with a decent phone camera
There's no flash, and the rechargeable battery isn't user replaceable
