LG 34UM88 Bildschirm im Unboxing [4K UHD]

9 Reasons For

Excellent Owner Reviews

On average, 34UM88 owners rated this PC monitor as brilliant.

A Best Selling Product

The 34UM88 is one the most popular LCD screen currently available for purchase.

Nice Design

One LG 34UM88 owner who reviewed it reckoned that it was good looking. Techradar.com mentioned in their LG 34UM88 review “9 aspect ratio display produces gorgeous images”.

LG Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

On average LG medium monitors have good ratings as do all PC screens produced by LG.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on similar spec LCD screens that are a comparable age to it.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display to this LCD screen and we think the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price], the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price], and the LG 34UM88C[plb_3289167_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Two HDMI Ports

Most PC displays that are a comparable age to the 34UM88 have between one and three HDMI ports, including the LG 34UM88 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Color Gamut

The LG 34UM88 has a fairly large color gamut (99 percent) compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors. The smallest color gamut of latest medium monitors is 68% and the largest is 110%.

Chart Edit

3440 X 1440 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the LG 34UM88 is 3440 x 1440. That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). The best resolution of all comparable spec PC displays that were released in the last year is 3840 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 350.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The shallowest latest medium monitor is 7mm deep and the deepest is 610mm. At only 49.2 millimeters, the LG 34UM88 is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Not Robust

One LG 34UM88 owner who bought this PC monitor reckoned that it was not well made. Expert website Techradar.com said in their review of this PC monitor a few weeks ago “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. Most of the other new medium monitors do have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the LG 34UC88[plb_3355113_price], the AOC AG271QG[plb_3668603_price], or the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 34UM88 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens that are a comparable age to the 34UM88 are also not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LG 34UM88 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other new comparable spec LCD screens also do not have a built-in camera.

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

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The LG 34UM88 does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 34UM88 also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The LG 34UM88 is one of the heavier recently released medium monitors (6.3 kilograms) amongst medium monitors of this age. The weights of PC monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 34UM88 range from 2.6g to 21kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

The average width of comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were released in the last 12 months is 590mm, and the widths range from 370mm to 900mm. When compared to other flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as the 34UM88 that we have assessed the width of, the LG 34UM88's width of 829.9 millimeters is one of the widest.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 829.9mm wide flatpanel monitors currently available including the LG 34UM88C[plb_3289167_price] which has better reviews.

Alternative PC displays with a wider width that you might want to look at include the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] (827.5mm and higher rated); or the LG 34UC98[plb_3323747_price] (817mm and cheaper).

Very Slow Response Time

At 14 milliseconds, the LG 34UM88 has a fairly slow response time compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 34UM88. The average response time of recently released medium monitors is 5.2ms.

2 Other reasons to consider the LG 34UM88

Released Ten Months Ago

Two Thunderbolt Ports

Compared to the other six medium monitors that came out in the last year that we have assessed the number of thunderbolt ports of, the number of thunderbolt ports on the LG 34UM88 is two which is average.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2 thunderbolt port LCD screens currently available including the LG 34UM88C[plb_3289167_price] which has better reviews; or the LG 34UC98[plb_3323747_price] which is cheaper.
