LG Ultrawide Monitor for Work and Play
LG is one of the big companies that produce several models of Ultrawide monitor. The company’s tagline of its series of 21:9 ultra-wide monitors is “revolutionize the way you work and play.” The largest model is the 38UC99-W IPS Curved LED Monitor with 37.5″ diagonal. This curved LED monitor is also the most expensive, priced at around $1500.00. While the smallest one in this series of 21:9 monitors are the 25UM56-P, an IPS LED Gaming Monitor with 25″ diagonal. All these monitors offer one thing in common. They are all Ultrawide 21:9 monitors with the capability of producing crystal-clear HD Quality images, which makes them perfect for professionals and gamers.
The tagline “revolutionize the way you work and play” is suitable for LG monitors that are flat, but not for the curved ones, such as the 34UC89G-B, the 34UC79G-B, and others because they are only suitable for gaming and not for other purposes. There’s no need to doubt that curved displays are great for gaming because they immerse gamers to their games’ virtual world. But curved displays are not suitable for work because everything displayed on them are curved. Plus, curved monitors are designed specifically for gaming, so their prices are high because they have plenty of added features to maximize gaming performance, which is actually useless for work purposes.
Most ultra-wide monitors with curved panel are quite expensive, and so do the ones from LG. The cheapest curved LG ultrawide monitor is the 34UC79G-B, priced at around $600.00. So, even the cheapest one isn’t very cheap. The non-curved models, however, are very affordable. The smallest, and also the cheapest non-curved model is the 25UM56-P 21:9 UltraWide® IPS LED Gaming Monitor (25″ diagonal), priced at around $158.00. While the biggest and the most expensive non-curved model is the 34UM88-P 34″ 21:9 UltraWide® QHD IPS LED Monitor (34″ Diagonal), priced at $800.00. LG has a 34” non-curved model that’s surprisingly affordable, the 34UM69G-B, priced at only $400.00. This one is surely an excellent option for those who want to buy a large ultra-wide monitor that doesn’t cost too much.
