Easy to Use

One LG 34UM88C owner considered that it was easy to use the menus. John rated this PC monitor 5 stars and he said a few weeks ago “The joystick control for changing settings was easy to adapt to after the Dell touch buttons” in his LG 34UM88C review.

LG PC Monitors Have Good Reviews

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many new medium monitors.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display and we think the 34UC98[pl_3323747_price], and the 34UM88[pl_3323895_price] both from LG or the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 34UM88C has a built-in speaker. Most of the other new medium monitors also have a built-in speaker.

Alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the AOC AG271QG[plb_3668603_price], or the LG 34UC88[plb_3355113_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the DELL U3417W[plb_3817031_price].

Quite Many Display Colour Count

The LG 34UM88C has one of the more display colour counts (1,070 million) amongst medium monitors of this age. The least display colour count of new medium monitors is 16M and the most is 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The 34UM88C is a two HDMI port PC display.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Audio Power

Medium monitors that were released in the last year have RMS rated audio powers of between 0.5W and 20W. The 34UM88C has one of the higher RMS rated audio powers (14 Watts) amongst medium monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

3440 X 1440 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the 34UM88C is 3440 x 1440. That's over two times the resolution of a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) PC screen, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all PC screens that are a comparable age to the 34UM88C the worst resolution is 640 x 350 and the best is 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Display Brightness

The 34UM88C has a quite bright display brightness (300 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors. Medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 34UM88C have display brightness of between 200 cd/m² and 800 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m².

Chart Edit

Has Three Cables Included

The 34UM88C has a greater number of cables included than most medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as it. This LCD screen has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on medium monitors that are a similar age to the 34UM88C.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Only Mega Contrast Dynamic Contrast Ratio

This LCD screen has a Mega Contrast dynamic contrast ratio, which is typical of many similar spec PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

We checked 295 recently released similar spec PC monitors and they range in price from £40 to £1,164. We think that this LG flatpanel monitor looks expensive compared to other recently released similar spec PC monitors.

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 34UM88C, the 34UM88C is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 34UM88C do not have a built-in camera. The LG 34UM88C is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in camera and we think the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that have been available for the last year do not have an integrated card reader. The LG 34UM88C is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 34UM88C will cost £105 over 5 years to run, which makes it one of the more expensive to run comparable spec PC displays that were released in the last 12 months.

Chart

Heavy

With a weight of 6.3 kilograms, the 34UM88C is one of the heavier flatpanel monitors that were released in the last 12 months amongst comparable spec flatpanel monitors of this age. The average weight of latest medium monitors is 4.7kg, and the weights range from 2.6g to 21kg.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

With a width of 829.9 millimeters, the 34UM88C is one of the widest PC screens that were launched in the last 12 months amongst medium monitors of this age. The average width of recently released medium monitors is 590mm.

We compared all the other 829.9mm wide PC monitors to this PC screen and we think the LG 34UM88[plb_3323895_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would consider a LCD screen with a wider width then you might want to look at the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] (827.5mm) which is also cheaper.

Two Thunderbolt Ports

The 34UM88C is a two thunderbolt port flatpanel monitor which is average compared to the other six medium monitors that are a similar age to the 34UM88C that we have assessed the number of thunderbolt ports of.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 2 thunderbolt port PC monitors currently available including cheaper PC screens such as the 34UC98[pl_3323747_price], or the 34UM88[pl_3323895_price] both from LG.
