LG Electronics has finally started to sell its highly-anticipated 34” curved display in the U.K. and the U.S. The manufacturer positions its LG 34UC97 display as a solution for both professionals as well as multimedia enthusiasts, but, surprisingly, the product does not cost too lot.

LG’s Curved UltraWide Monitor (model 34UC97) features a 34” IPS panel with 3440*1440 resolution, 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio, 300cd/m2 brightness, 1000:1 (DFC 10,000,000:1) contrast ratio, 178° viewing angle, 5ms GTG response time, 60Hz refresh rate and so on. The display uses AH-IPS panel that covers 99 per cent of sRGB colour gamut and has 10-bit colour depth.

The curved LG 34UC97 monitor hosts in-built 7W*2 MaxxAudio speakers, two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort and two ThunderBolt 2.0 connections giving users multiple options of input. The monitor also includes two-port USB 3.0 hub.

According to LG, the curve nearly encompasses close to 180 degrees, allowing the user to cover nearly all their peripheral vision, bringing a whole new experience to PC gaming and media viewing. The company also claims that ultra-wide aspect ratio will be good for media professionals, who need to view a lot of visual information at the same time. While the display may not be an ideal choice if you work for a print media magazine and have to edit photos, the ultra-wide aspect ratio makes a lot of sense for different kinds of professionals.

While the LG curved UltraWide monitor (model 34UC97) does not feature trendy ultra-high-definition 4K (3840*2160) resolution, it is a unique product that is suitable for many kinds of users. Surprisingly, while it is definitively not an affordable solution, it also does not seem to be completely overpriced.

Overclockers UK offers the LG 34UC97 for £979.99 inc VAT and for a time being the product will be exclusively available only from this store in the U.K. Newegg sells the LG 34UC97 for $1,299.99 in the U.S.

At present LG’s curved UltraWide monitor (model 34UC97) is the only solution of this kind of the market and has no rivals. In case it becomes a success, expect other display makers to follow.

I believe 3440 x 1440 @ 120 Hz is going to need the bandwidht in Display Port 1.3, which isn't even out yet...

By my calculation 3440 x 1440 @120Hz IS possible with DP1.2 with 8-bit color. DP1.3 only needed for 10-bit.

120 hz > 10-bit colour imo. At least for gamers.

I hate how manufactures say 3840p is 4k! that's like saying 1080p when really the screen only goes up to 900p.
