[TPU] LG Announces 38UC99 and 34UC79G - Page 3

post #21 of 172
I really wish they would at least push the 3840 Ultrawide to 75hz, there's no reason not to, and it would be a big deal if they would have added Freesync support as well.

Even more befuddling AMD (nVidia too but to a much lesser extent) was pushing hard for HDR with Polaris and I'm not hearing anything out of their camp since release in regards to getting monitor technology to match TV technology...

Sorry for the rant, but every weeks there is a new monitor announced and none with the feature sets that I can use with a 4K Blu-ray player and the HDR goodies from the UHD Blu-ray.

On a better note, LG has really been hitting it out the park these past few years when it comes to their displays/technology, this is absolutely no different.


I'm guessing the strict standards for black levels would make HDR difficult on economical monitors. Apparently you're either using a backlight dimming grid or OLED.

Which just means it would be that much nicer to have, but I'm guessing it's a little more involved than just swapping out some parts.

Looks like my current monitor is going to stay a bit longer.
I'm actually more interested in the 38" version, but I'm not sure it will be worth getting it atm.

Offering unrivaled screen real-estate, model 38UC99 is ideal for tasks that require attention to details. In addition to its roomy design, this monitor's advanced IPS UltraWide QHD+ (3840 x 1600) resolution

Screen real estate comes from resolution not size, and any 4K monitor has more resolution than the 38" monitor. If you really want to claim size matters regardless of resolution, there are still 40-45" computer monitor out there that a lot of people have. So no again LG.

Just 4K doesn't mean it is workable.
I'm sure you have never tried to run a photoshop session on a 4K-24". It is pointless.
For real estate, you need both higher resolution and bigger screen. Just one of the two makes it non-workable.

For games it is a whole different story. Higher resolution gives better visuals and even a smaller screen benefits from it. But for productivity, just resolution is a total miss. Its like saying the galaxy s7 has more real estate than a normal 1080p monitor, because it is higher resolution. I dare you open a productivity tool in that resolution on the s7 and tell me it has more usable real estate.

Even the dell 5K monitor is more meant to work at 2560x1440 using retina type resolution and not the full on 5K.

While I agree a higher resolution is more useable, the 38" is meant to give more room on a shorter scale. 45" computer monitor is huge, and you can definitely not fit it in every desk. A wide 38" on the other hand is a lot more manageable.

The only LCD panels that can display HDR content properly (respecting the standard integrally) are VA with lots of dimming zones. I'm not perfectly sure, but dimming zones add some process delay, which is not desirable in a monitor.

That's what the curve is for (among other things).

its 1440p at 60hz for the price rrp $599 and possibly lower in amazon, one cant really complain. i really wish LG comes out with even cheaper widescreen with "essentials" features for work / coding / productivity scenarios.

hopefully dell will release a cheaper P series ultrawide

I wish the 38UC99 had freesync. It would be my idea of a perfect monitor if it had freesync.

With current display technology I see a few openings where 4K & HDR on a monitor 27" and up could work; Quantum Dots, VA/IPS w/ FALD, OLED

Samsung already placed Quantum Dots in a monitor (lmao, this video was posted today) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umlCZ55u6Ks

Dell already sourced/placed OLED panels for a monitor (which hasn't seen the light of day since its reveal at CES) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2Vqbi71Lek

Lenovo already sourced/placed OLED in laptops even smaller than an appropriate monitor http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/x-series/x1-yoga/

The Lenovo panel is at 300 nits and from what I can find 1000 - 4000 is the practiced range (10,000 at the theoretical maximum) for HDR10

The only missing link is VA/IPS w/ FALD which I can see being an engineering challenge and it requires a smaller physical cluster of the lights with tighter algorithm curves for monitors to avoid that blooming.

I just really want to be able to take advantage of the new format and have that monitor be my work monitor and not have to replace my 1080p TV

Is the 34" curved? It doesn't look like it in the pictures. If it is, this may be the monitor I'll be biting on for that price. I can't believe they released a 38" screen, to think I thought 34" is the perfect size. I wonder how big they'll go.

Yeah if there's a UC in the model number - its curved. If its UM its flat.
