LG 34UC88/34UC98/34UM88 Monitors Thread - Page 17

post #161 of 959
Thanks for the quick reply, Lg has too many diff displays to keep up with. I just want a curved 4k freesync 34" lol So would that 87 be a solid choice?

older version is supposed to suffer from higher back light bleed and IPS glow.
Newer gen supposedly has less.
Best read reviews for each and decide for urself- or go to a store and check them out in person.

Currently all ultrawides are max 1440p, not 4K.

87 doesn't have FreeSync.

Here is a list of FreeSync 3440x1440 monitors: http://cenowarka.pl/?cat=monlcd19wide&xf=5137_3440x1440~5848_AMD+FreeSync+(Adaptive+Sync)#xf_top

Better look for the newest gen (UM88, UC88 or UC98) because they have much less issues, or rather they have the same issues but on much smaller degree.

Also consider GPU requirements for 3440x1440 for games and rather narrow FreeSync ranges that doesn't have to be expandable by hack, this is not guaranteed.

Ill be upgrading the Gpu at the end of the year more than likely; so is the LG 34UC87C a solid monitor for everyday usage; gaming and productivity?

That's 1st gen- older, more problems.
Best to get the latest gen UC88 or UM88- however the UC88 has a more pronounced curve than the 1st gen models.

What are the problems? Are they horrible or is it minor things? Because amazon is selling the 34UC87C for $660 at the moment....

Read this- https://www.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemasterrace/comments/4lawya/lg_34uc87_vs_88_vs_97_vs_98/?st=irnhdr07&sh=757b4558

The only thing against the latest gen versions is the more pronounced curve which I don't like- not good for graphics design work. frown.gif
