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

I just tried TFT Central's X34 profile just out of curiosity. Its a bit different, its a bit like using HDR option from SweetFX/Reshade, it makes everything look overly vibrant and makes dark colors darker. I don't like it and U3415W profile looks more natural to me, but this X34 profile may be better for some, some people like this kind of picture.

Here's a pic of my panel at 25 percent brightness and 70 percent contrast using Dell u3415w ICC profile.

Thanks. Also check FreeSync range if you are able to. I have added 34UM88 into thread and some info about, I will finish it later.

I don't own an AMD card so I can't check Freesync range. I believe the range is 40-60Hz.

Hey everybody, new here. So I just picked up a 34uc88 last night but sorta bummed out cause I think I got a dud. It was brand new sealed but the moment I set it up I immediately noticed random pixels flashing all over the screen. They're red, green, blue, and white and just for a split second. And this was before I plugged anything to my pc. My heart sank but thought maybe it just needed to warm up a bit and maybe a reset. So I changed some settings in the menu hoping they'll help and tried resetting to factory defaults but no luck. It's less noticeable on white or some kind of picture but very noticeable on a dark background. After about an hour of it not going away I packed it back up and will be exchanging it today.

Besides that issue the BLB was almost nonexistent. Some minor IPS glow in the top right corner but nothing worth returning for. The stand, while stylish, sucks pretty bad in terms of stability. It feels like a knock in the top corners can cause it to tip and fall over. Since I have a glass top desk I think a little doublesided tape will keep it on its feet. Coming from a triple 24" setup it did feel a little underwhelming at first but the lack of bezels between monitors quickly won me over. Takes up less space and much less power usage equals less heat. I'm really hoping I'll have better luck with the next one.

Random pixels were flashing, standalone, not for example horizontal lines of pixels? If you have Nvidia GPU then this can be caused by 10 bpc color depth in control panel since Nvidia doesn't support 10 bpc on GeForce line properly, I had similar issue on 980 Ti with white horizontal lines flashing for a split second if 10 bpc was enabled. Changing it to 8 bpc helped and it didn't give any difference in quality since for now only specific professional applications are featuring 10 bpc.

Is it something like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_GzlpuV04c

As for stand, you have to have very unstable or crooked desk. I really don't know what you are talking about with all of those stability complains, stand is very stable and on properly stable desk you need an earthquake to cause any instability.

Yep, that's exactly what is happening with mine. Nothing connected, just power plug. Looks sorta like the static on the old tube TVs just a much fainter version of it. I thought it may be the power brick but I don't have any that would fit, nor would I want to try and possibly make things worst.


*Seems like there's a few people having this issue too and had to get a replacement. Fortunately I bought mine in store so it'll be a quick ordeal instead of having to RMA through an online retailer.

It's actually a pretty sturdy stand for me, although I am using an L-shaped desk with a wooden top and steel base/legs.

What colour profile should one use? The LG ULTRAWIDE profile shipped is a total crap.
