If you want a big TV with an ultrawide screen, the LG 34UM68-P may be just what you are seeking. Its clear 2560 x 1080 resolution makes games, TV shows, and movies look immersive and natural.
The monitor has a diagonal of 34 inches, while the aspect ratio equals 21:9 (such aspect ratio is used in most modern gaming monitors). Its sizes are 32.7 x 9.4 x 21.6 inches. The item is rather heavy (17.6 pounds), so you may need some help during the monitor's transportation.
The picture looks equally crisp from any viewing angle thanks to the IPS panel. The LG 34UM68-P 34-inch monitor can also offer a clear contrast and accurate colors since it covers 99% of the sRGB color gamut and has 8 bits of color depth. 300 nits of peak brightness allow you to see a more vivid picture. This is especially important given the fact that a matte coating of the screen lessens the brightness level. Furthermore, there is a special Color mode to maximize the screen's color performance. So, if you are a content creator, this monitor will allow you to make the color corrections easily and see the footage exactly as it was shot.
The Screen Split 2.0 is another great feature that can efficiently upscale the working processes of those people who deal with multimedia content. You can use it to change the monitor's layout and create multiple additional “screens” by splitting the display into as many windows as you need. This feature also offers picture-in-picture functionality.
While 75Hz refresh rate and 5ms response time may not be very impressive for skillful gamers, the 34UM68-P additionally offers FreeSync support and three different Game modes (two shooter modes and the real-time strategy one). They give you an excellent gaming experience without tearing and stuttering.
In addition to all these gaming features, the item is fitted with a couple of extra options, helping it outperform many other similar monitors.
All these options can be activated using the monitor settings. They are available only via the on-screen control window since the unit itself doesn't have onboard controls. Remember that you can adjust all the settings only after you install the LG 34UM68-P drivers.
The LG 34UM68-P 34-inch 21:9 ultra-wide IPS monitor with FreeSync has a slim profile and looks simple. The cabinet is composed of black plastic. The stand has a unique ArcLine design, used in the LG’s premium monitors. It’s wide enough to provide sturdy support and balance that ultrawide monitors need. Besides, such a stand doesn't take up much space on the desktop. It also allows adjusting height (up to 120mm) and tilt (–5°/ 20°) of the monitor.
The bezels around the display are so thin that they seem to be almost invisible. Hence, it's suitable for a seamless multi-monitor setup.
On the rear of the monitor, you will see 2 HDMIs and one DisplayPort.
To sum up all that has been mentioned in this LG 34UM68-P review, I can say this model will cover the needs of anyone who requires a monitor for color-sensitive work (designers, photographers, etc.). It's also a good choice for average gaming needs since the monitor has a decent set of gaming features.
