LED Display

This PC display has an LED display, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors that were launched in the last year.

9 Reasons Against

Not Robust

One LG 34UM88 reviewer who bought the LG 34UM88 concluded that it was not well made. Techradar.com mentioned on expert website Techradar “Because we don't know everything there is to know about the LG 34UM88 ultra-wide monitor, we can't form a solid preliminary opinion” in their review of this PC monitor.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The LG 34UM88 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other PC monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 34UM88.

There are a number of other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider including the AOC AG241QG[plb_3811693_price], or the Acer XZ321Q[plb_3758589_price]; or the AOC AG271QX[plb_3537209_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D

Most medium monitors that were released in the last year are not 3D. The LG 34UM88 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D then you might want to consider the ZOWIE XL2720[pl_3761444_price], or the Zowie XL2430[pl_3761443_price] both from Benq.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other PC screens that came out around the same time as the 34UM88, the LG 34UM88 does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in camera which you might want to look at including the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most PC monitors that were released in the last 12 months do not have a card reader integrated. The LG 34UM88 is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

The cheapeast PC monitors that came out in the last 12 months that we found costs £57 and the most expensive costs £3,142. We think that this PC display looks expensive for a latest medium monitor.

High Running Costs

The 34UM88 has an average 8 year running cost of £180 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the less economic to run similar spec LCD screens that were released in the last 12 months.

Chart

Heavy

The weights of medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 34UM88 range from 2.6g to 21kg. With a weight of 6.3 kilograms, the LG 34UM88 is one of the heavier similar spec PC screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 34UM88 amongst PC screens of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Response Time

When compared to other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 34UM88 that we have assessed, the LG 34UM88's response time of 14 milliseconds is one of the slowest. Recently released LCD screens have response times of between 1ms and 20ms, and the average response time is 5.2ms.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the LG 34UM88

Released Eleven Months Ago

It was eleven months ago when LG released the 34UM88.

Two Thunderbolt Ports Quantitys

Compared to the other recently released medium monitors that we have assessed the number of thunderbolt ports quantitys of, the LG 34UM88 is a two thunderbolt ports quantity PC monitor which is average.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other 2 thunderbolt ports quantity flatpanel monitors and we think the LG 34UC98[plb_3323747_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
