9 Reasons For

Just Released Eight Months Ago

This PC screen has only been on the market for eight months. Newer LCD screens like this one are likely to have more advanced features.

LG PC Screens Have Good Reviews

LG has good average ratings for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC display range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the 34UC98-W, the 34UC98-W has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think cheaper PC monitors such as the HP ENVY 34c is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker including the LG 34UC88-B (£687.96), or the Acer B346CK (£741.32).

9 Reasons Against

Only Two USB Type-A Downstream Ports

Chart Edit

Not Cheap Compared to Other Medium Monitors That Were Released in the Last 12 Months

The price range of medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months is from £42 to £3,140. We thought that this PC display looks expensive for a recently released medium monitor.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The 34UC98-W does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other new medium monitors also do not have an integrated card reader.

There are a number of other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to consider including the DELL UP2715K (£634.80) which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are Very High

The average running cost of the 34UC98-W is £91 over 5 years based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the least economic to run latest PC monitors.


Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment

If you are not worried about having a wider width then you might also want to consider the Acer B346CK (£741.32) (827mm).
