12 Reasons For
One Industry Award
The reviewer at Gamezoom.net endorse this medium monitor and have given it their "Recommended" award.
Good Expert Reviews
On average, based on two expert reviews from sites including gamezoom.net and newesc.pt the average expert rating of this PC display is 85 out of 100.
LG Has Good PC Display Reviews
Based on 3,264 user and expert reviews, LG has good reviews for its LCD screens. LG also has good reviews specifically within its medium monitors range.
LED Display Type
This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors that came out around the same time as it.
Alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper PC screen such as the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] or you might consider a higher scoring PC screen such as the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker
The LG 34UC88 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the 34UC88.
There are a number of other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price], or the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price] which is cheaper.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the AOC AG271QG[plb_3668603_price] is also worth considering.
Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
The LG 34UC88 has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle (178 degrees) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months. The vertical viewing angles of newly released PC monitors range from 15° to 180°.
+7 More reasons for
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
With a horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees, the LG 34UC88 has a quite wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other PC displays that were launched in the last 12 months. The narrowest horizontal viewing angle of LCD screens that were released around the same time as the 34UC88 is -5° and the widest is 180°.
Fairly Big Display Diagonal
When compared to other flatpanel monitors that came out in the last 12 months, the LG 34UC88's display diagonal of 87 centimeters is one of the biggest. Across all the new similar spec PC displays the screen sizes range from 49cm to 690cm, and the average display diagonal is 68cm.
Very Low Power Consumption When Off
The power consumptions when off of new PC displays range from 0.005W to 350W. With a power consumption when off of only 0.3 Watts, the LG 34UC88 has one of the lower power consumptions when off amongst PC screens of this age.
Very High RMS Rated Audio Power
When compared to other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 34UC88 that we have checked, the LG 34UC88's RMS rated audio power of 14 Watts is one of the highest. Across all the comparable spec LCD screens that came out around the same time as the 34UC88 the RMS rated audio powers range from 0.5W to 20W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 4.8W.
Fairly Large Color Gamut
The smallest color gamut of recently released medium monitors is 68% and the largest is 110%. At 99 percent, the LG 34UC88 has a fairly large color gamut compared to most of the other similar spec PC screens that are a comparable age to the 34UC88.
3440 X 1440 Graphics Resolution
The LG 34UC88 has a maximum resolution of 3440 x 1440. That's over two times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). The best resolution of all recently released medium monitors is 3840 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 350.
12 Reasons Against
Only One USB Type-A Downstream Port
The LG 34UC88 is a one USB Type-A downstream port PC screen. Most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 34UC88 have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports.
Not 3D Compatible
Most recently released similar spec PC displays are not 3D compatible. The LG 34UC88 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Acer Predator XB271HU[plb_3406684_price].
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most comparable spec PC screens that were released in the last 12 months do not have a built-in camera. The LG 34UC88 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The LG 34UC88 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 34UC88 also do not have an integrated card reader.
+9 More reasons against
The price range of new medium monitors is from £40 to £1,164. We think that this PC screen looks expensive compared to other new medium monitors.
High Running Costs
This flatpanel monitor is rated B for energy efficiency, and the average 5 year running cost of the 34UC88 is £112 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the less economic to run medium monitors that have been on the market for the last year.
Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment
With a maximum height adjustment of only 120 millimeters, the LG 34UC88 has one of the lower maximum height adjustments amongst medium monitors of this age. The average maximum height adjustment of medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 34UC88 is 130mm.
Only Has Two Cables Included
The LG 34UC88 has a greater number of cables included than most recently released medium monitors. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC screen. The cables included DisplayPort and HDMI are also found on this LG PC screen.
The lightest new similar spec flatpanel monitor is 2.6g weight and the heaviest is 21kg. With a weight of 6.2 kilograms, the LG 34UC88 is one of the heavier medium monitors that have been around for the last year amongst medium monitors of this age.
Fairly High Annual Energy Consumption
Across all the medium monitors that have been available for the last year the annual energy consumptions range from 23kWh to 140kWh. At 79 kilowatt hours, the LG 34UC88 has a quite high annual energy consumption compared to most of the other recently released flatpanel monitors.
The LG 34UC88 is one of the wider medium monitors that were released in the last year (817.6 millimeters) amongst PC monitors of this age. Across all the medium monitors that are a similar age to the 34UC88 the widths range from 370mm to 900mm, and the average width is 590mm.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to consider the LG 27UD68-W[plb_3304971_price] (615mm), or the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] (827.5mm) which is also cheaper.
Very Slow Response Time
When compared to other new PC screens, the LG 34UC88's response time of 14 milliseconds is one of the slowest. The response times of newly released PC displays range from 1ms to 20ms, and the average response time is 5.2ms.
