Customers Report Inferior Product Quality
Three people who bought it considered that it was not good quality.
Good quality 34 monitor…
The cheap and flimsy plastic build quality feels out of place on a premium screen…
The sheer enormity of this screen goes a long way to make up for the high levels of after blur and the truly awful sound quality…
The quality is frankly terrible…
Customers Report Excellent Design
Three customers who reviewed it agreed that it was good looking.
It does have a beautiful 1440 resolution that is superior to the 1080 panels that are marketed as gaming monitors…
Given that the ports face out backwards they are pretty hard to access from the front, even with the monitor fully tilted…
The back has a high gloss polished (piano black) effect with a beautiful silver trim emphasising the curve…
Customers Report That it is Fairly Priced
Three owners who bought the LG 34UC88 reckoned that it was good value for money.
Overall a great product for its price…
Highly recommend at this price…
Great value, Amazons trusted warranty policy…
