You Will Not Regret Ascension
This is a review for the LG 34GP83A. I saved up for months to get an ultrawide curved and I'm enamored with the quality that LG has delivered. Shopping for a monitor is a really confusing endeavor - the naming scheme is bonkers, it's hard to understand what combination of specifications meet your ne...

My review of the Odyssey G9 - It's like an IPS without bad contrast ratio
The monitor finally arrived to me in Sweden and after testing alot of different 240hz monitors and the LG 38GL950 recently I finally have my future monitor on my desk - the Odyssey G9 and this is why. Pros. 1. It has everything - 5120x1440@240hz QLED 1000R HDR1000 - and it works as promised (future proof).

An Amazing Piece of Display Technology!
We had a beautiful relationship while it lasted. I had eyes for perfection and you brought that perfection, 34GP83A-B. You really did. You were flicker-free. You were G-Sync Certified. You were of the highest quality IPS available and brought me the fastest GTG (1ms) and refresh rate (144-160hz) a g...

buy right or buy twice
I'm literally you, reading through reviews wondering if this monitor is worth nearly 900 bucks. Honestly, it is. I spent way too much time returning budget crap options, if you're ok with VA smearing on lower end monitors and don't play fast paced games then fine, but for me the colors out of the bo...

So far the monitor has been great with no issues. Prior to that I used the Acer x34 which was also fantastic. I have been contemplating if I should return the 34GN and purchase the 38GL950G instead. They seem to offer nearly the same features with the 38 obviously being larger.
The best money can buy - if you have the PC to back it up
I notice not too many reviews are for the 38inch Ultrawide version, so I will add one. I am running this monitor on a brand new build - i7 9700k, 2080ti, 64GB 3000mhz RAM. Everything overclocked. It maintains about 120-140hz at max settings in new games with v-sync on. It is buttery smooth. Seriousl...

Ordered a 38GN950 UltraGear, fingers crossed.
Just picked up a 38GL950 this past week and have been loving it so far. Was going to go for the GN but ended up getting the GL version for the same price with the added benefit of a gsync v2 module. I don't use HDR on PC so the HDR600 didn't mean much to me.

LG 38GL950G Review, The New Ultrawide Performance Champion
In my opinion - and this brings me to the final consideration here, which is the price tag - eighteen hundred US dollars - is a huge amount of money to spend on a monitor. Admittedly, this is a really really good monitor, but I just think this price tag is a bit too high, especially with a number of 3840 by 1600 monitors with 160 hertz.
