LG 34UC79G-B Review
Conclusion At $699.99, the LG 34UC79G-B is a great deal if you're looking to do your gaming on an extra-wide, extra-large screen. Its subtle curve keeps you close to the action, and its IPS panel delivers strong grayscale performance and wide viewing angles

I turned on my PC today to discover my LG 34UC79G-B, 144hz 34" ultrawide 1080p monitor would not power on, much to my dismay. I purchased it secondhand last year, in excellent condition, for about 300 usd, a fair price for my neck of the woods. It was about 2-3 years old at the time, and I hoped to get a good few more years out of it with any luck.

LG 34UC79G-B 144Hz Ultrawide Monitor Review
Well, it's a pretty nice experience, the 1080p aspect to it the fact that it isn't the 1440p resolution isn't as nice and especially for this size of screen, the pixel density is a little bit low. Personally, I do prefer the 1440p models, but 144 Hertz refresh rate does make a compelling offer, especially if you are planning on using this as a gaming monitor. Also, the price tag for this isn't as high as the 1440p models, and especially compared to even some of the 1080p g-sync models as well

A near perfect balance of price, performance and features.
I have been on the market for an ultrawide monitor for quite some time now... and being one of those production minded gamers, finding the right balance between performance and image quality in an ultrawide has not been easy.... Until now. Ok lets get onto the good stuff. At the time of writing this...

Amazing Curved 34" Gaming Monitor BUT... Should You Avoid It?
So that's my experience with a 34 UC. 89 G. It's a fantastic gaming panel and hits all the right points for that criteria, but unless you're exclusively using this for games, then the resolution is a bit of a letdown for such a new release and the price difference between g-sync and freesync

Nvidia Fanboy Approved...
I'm a Big Fan of Nvidia, but G-Sync is expensive and doesn't make much sense for those of us who get the best Graphics Cards with 120hz or greater monitors. So when I found this monitor claiming it had a "Virtual" 1ms response time mode. I went ahead, made the purchase and I'm glad I did. It's hard ...

I got a new lg 34uc79g-b which is a 34" ultra wide 1080p 144hz monitor. When I hooked it up it looked good working fine but I noticed it was at 59hz by default. I changed it to 144hz and that's when the fire nation attacked. The monitor just keeps flickering on and off, I had dual monitors originally with one at 60hz and the new one.
Works with Nvidia GPU Gsync...
Pros: It works with Nvidia GPU Gsync enabled, no monitor issue like flickering, artifacts, etc. The HDR effect preset makes gaming/movies look amazing (no need to have HDR active which can caused washed out color). Cons: Although it is Gsync compatible, the performance compared to an actual Gsync mo...
