By then, I'm hoping OLED becomes more affordable and will move on to that once decent Ultrawide OLEDs come to market. I've had AMOLED screens for my Samsung S2 and S5, but really wish to use them in a bigger form factor.

UM88 and UC88 do share many similarities, but the curved vs non-curved would be the most obvious point to a difference in panels.
Bad time to buy a monitor. Pretty much why I went with the $575 34UM88 to hold me over until the big boys arrive. Going to sell a 27" Dell IPS for $200 to offset the cost. The x34p looks enticing but I'm not sure about spending $1300 when Ultrawide 144Hz monitors and OLED/HDR will be here in a year or two.

Yea thats kind of a time full of concerns, higher refresh rate is going to be more accessible (I don't care though, stable 60 is enough of a concern at this resolution), OLED is coming, HDR is coming, but I wasn't really willing to wait 2 years or so. I upgraded to 3440x1440 half a year ago and I am satisfied, it was expensive as fcuk, especially for someone like me, student alike from Poland where I can earn $3 per hour at best, but this monitor provides amazing experience and there will be no reason to upgrade until something really big hits the market at sensible price, like 3440x1440 OLED at similar price to what I got 34UC98 for. I am not going to make sidegrades with this monitor, only significant upgrade once something seriously big hits. Now I will just wait a bit for big things to hit GPU market, I mean sensible things, not something like Titan XP that costs 5900 ZL while 34UC98 was 3800. GTX 1080 is still a bit too little for future proof comfortable 3440x1440, so I am waiting for something like 1080 Ti, spend horrendous amount of money once more and be finally set for a long time.

Seems like AMD Vega would be a better fit for you. Heard it'll perform between the 1080 and Titan XP. You already have a Freesync monitor.

Yea I want to see this. In this age... Plus CPU overshot is quite big in some games and it affects performance pretty badly in some games, especially CPU limited ones, like LOTRO for example, performance decrease is really huge, which means a downgrade from somehow playable game at 58 average and quite frequent deeps to 50, sometimes to 45, to like 44 average with 33 minimum, so this is very significant. From somehow playable to not playable.

Will see, so far Vega is not even existing, but it kinda has to exist becuase Nvidia has no reason for releasing 1080 Ti until there is any competition on high end, because now they are comfortably selling x80 class card for a price of x80Ti class card.

AMD already hinted towards a release in the near future. Won't be too long from now.

My guess is that Vega will paper launch in October and will be in shelves in December for the holiday sales. I'll see what kind of performance levels Vega brings, but I'm due for an update after getting this monitor.

Krzych, just hope you don't get into cars. I just dropped $3K on wheels/tires right after dropping $1.8K on another set a few months ago. The best part is that my stock wheels/tires are still about 70% life left. I really want to do power and suspension mods, but gotta keep it practical for daily driving.

Finally setup my LG 34UM88. Wow! LG has finally done it. Well, at least on my monitor. NO BACKLIGHT bleeding! I have Gamma set to 0, brightness set to 25 and contrast at 70. Not sure what else to adjust yet. Any help would be appreciated. Loving it! Guess I'll keep this until the UltraWide 144Hz-200Hz monitors are out and and aren't insanely priced. thumb.gif

I am willing to pay heavy money only for something that is really important to me and I use it frequently, by this I mean few hours a day regularly, so don't worry.

I don't really care about cars, I didn't even finish doing driving license, had no will to do so after like 2/3 of a course, should have never gone there in first place, this is all so bad here in Poland, especially exams, I am not going to pay a broken penny to those frauds for some idiot to fail my exam because I stopped before STOP sign for 3 seconds instead of 3,5 seconds. This is true story, my sister's boyfriend failed because of that. I don't want to have anything to deal with those frauds, let alone paying them money, and also I can get 128 GB SSD for a price of one exam biggrin.gif

Nice. I don't really believe this unit to unit thing, if one unit has like zero bleed then others also have no or little. No bleed on one unit and crazy bleed on other unit is just myth that is coming from fanboys defending their purchases or blind people that doesn't even know what they are buying and cannot see issues with a display. There are no miracles, this is panel and internal build quality thing, it is either good or not. Some rare exceptions may happen, like faulty unit once per 100 or something, but good monitor is a good monitor, and bad monitor is a bad monitor. This is something those dummies that are exchanging some garbage 10 times in a row in searching for good unit should realize.

As for adjusting, try ICC profile. I don't know many of them, personally I use TFT Central's profile for Dell U3415W, works great, there is also one for UC98 in the description of this video. You can also look for one buy yourself. Default calibration is not really good, at least it wasn't on my UC98, ICC profile improved things dramatically.

Post some backlight bleed photo and I will add UM88 to this main post, so far I had no info about it.

Will post pix as soon as possible. Currently own a pos phone since I sold my iPhone 6s Plus. My brother got the same monitor so I'll post impressions of his monitor as well.

I tried the ICC profile you mentioned and it looks great! Thanks!
