10 Reasons For
Just Released Seven Months Ago
As one of the newer LCD screens, this PC screen is likely to use more advanced technology.
LG medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all PC displays LG is one of the superior brands.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that are a similar age to the 34UC88, the LG 34UC88 has a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the AOC U3277PWQU or you might consider a higher rated flatpanel monitor such as the DELL UP2715K (£634.80).
There are a number of other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at including the AOC AG271QG (£579.99).
Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
The horizontal viewing angles of medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 34UC88 range from 89° to 180°. With a horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees, the LG 34UC88 has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other latest PC displays.
Very Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
The narrowest vertical viewing angle of medium monitors that are a similar age to the 34UC88 is 65°, the widest is 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°. The vertical viewing angle of the LG 34UC88 of 178 degrees is one of the widest amongst PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the 34UC88.
Fairly Big Display Diagonal
The screen sizes of PC screens that were launched around the same time as the 34UC88 range from 52cm to 690cm. With a display diagonal of 87 centimeters, the LG 34UC88 has a very big display diagonal compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 34UC88.
+5 More reasons for
Quite Low Power Consumption When Off
The power consumptions when off of PC displays that came out in the last 12 months range from 0.005W to 4.3W, and the average power consumption when off is 0.4W. The LG 34UC88 has one of the lower power consumptions when off (only 0.3 Watts) amongst LCD screens of this age.
Fairly High RMS Rated Audio Power
At 14 Watts, the LG 34UC88 has a very high RMS rated audio power compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that were launched in the last 12 months. Medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 34UC88 have RMS rated audio powers of between 1W and 32W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5W.
Quite Large Color Gamut
The LG 34UC88 has a fairly large color gamut (99 percent) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last year. Newly released medium monitors have color gamuts of between 68% and 120%.
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 PC displays that have been around for the last year is 3840 x 2160 and the worst is 720 x 400.
15 Reasons Against
Only One USB Type-A Downstream Port
The LG 34UC88 is a one USB Type-A downstream port LCD screen. Most of the other new similar spec PC screens have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other PC screens that have been available for around the same time as the 34UC88, the LG 34UC88 does not have a built-in camera.
It is worth also looking at other PC displays which also have a built-in camera including the Philips 272B7QPTKEB (£440.29) which is also cheaper.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other latest flatpanel monitors, the LG 34UC88 does not have an integrated card reader.
It is worth also looking at other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the DELL UP2715K (£634.80) which also has a higher Rating.
Not 3D Compatible
Most recently released similar spec LCD screens are not 3D compatible. The LG 34UC88 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
+12 More reasons against
Not Cheap for a Medium Monitor That Has Been On the Market for the Last Year
We thought that this flatpanel monitor looks expensive compared to other recently released medium monitors. The price range of recently released medium monitors is from £42 to £3,140.
Running Costs Are High
The energy efficiency rating of this PC display is B, and based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 34UC88 will cost £112 over 5 years to run, which makes it one of the more expensive to run medium monitors that have been on the market for the last year.
Only 1000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the LG 34UC88 is 1000000:1. That's 99% less contrast ratio than the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 100000000:1. Across all medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 34UC88 the worst contrast ratio is Mega Contrast and the best is 100000000:1.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other flatpanel monitors that have a 1000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including because of it's better review score, the LG 34UM88 (£519.97).
If the contrast ratio of this PC screen is too low for you then you might want to consider the LG 34UM94C-P (£545.91) (10000000:1 and cheaper); or the LG 34UC98 (£499.99) (5000000:1 and higher rated).
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has a Wide Quad HD HD type, which is typical of many latest flatpanel monitors.
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 maximum height adjustments of latest medium monitors range from 20mm to 1,200mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 140mm.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC display has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most commonly found typical contrast ratio on medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Only One HDMI Port
The LG 34UC88 is a one HDMI port LCD screen.
Medium monitors that came out in the last year have weights of between 2.6g and 33kg, and the average weight is 4.8kg. With a weight of 6.2 kilograms, the LG 34UC88 is one of the heavier medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 34UC88 amongst comparable spec PC displays of this age.
Quite High Annual Energy Consumption
The average annual energy consumption of comparable spec PC monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 34UC88 is 47kWh, and the annual energy consumptions range from 3kWh to 98kWh. At 79 kilowatt hours, the LG 34UC88 has a fairly high annual energy consumption compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 34UC88.
With a width of 817.6 millimeters, the LG 34UC88 is one of the wider new medium monitors amongst medium monitors of this age. The average width of recently released comparable spec PC monitors is 590mm, and the widths range from 370mm to 960mm.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might want to consider the LG 34UC98 (£499.99) (817mm) which also has a higher rating.
Very Slow Response Time
Across all the latest LCD screens the response times range from 1ms to 20ms. With a response time of 14 milliseconds, the LG 34UC88's response time is one of the slowest amongst new comparable spec PC displays.

LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as it.
There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available which you might also want to look at including the DELL UP2715K (£634.80), or the LG 34UM88 (£519.97) which has a better Rating.
