  • Best Ultra Wide gaming monitor you can buy now.
    Reviewed by 7Kevin - September 1, 2020

    Coming from 2 x 27" 1440p 144hz monitors with TN panels, I was rather disappointed with 34GN850. 34GN850 was still a beautiful monitor by itself, but the screen coverage was little too small for me. Once I discovered that there is 38" version of the GN series, I had to try it. I can let you know that I am very happy I did, because a few extra inches taller and wider screen (Screen resolution of 34GN850's 3440x1440 vs. 38GN950's 3840x1600) really does make a huge difference. Also, the US website doesn't seem to list these under specs but UK's LG website did so here's supported display frequency of HDMI and Display Port: (Please note that with DP version 1.4 this monitor cannot get you the 10bit RGB444 on its native resolution at 144Hz. If you would like to use 10bit RGB444, you will be limited to 120Hz on the native resolution: HDMI (Max Resolution / Hz) 3840 x 1600 10bit at 75Hz DisplayPort (Max Resolution / Hz) 3840 x 1600 10bit(RGB444) at 120Hz 3840 x 1600 10bit(YUV422) at 144Hz 3840 x 1600 8bit(RGB444) at 144Hz 3840 x 1600 8bit(RGB444) at 160Hz (O/C) 3840 x 1600 10bit(YUV422) at 160Hz (O/C) Regardless, this monitor makes a fantastic gaming IPS panel monitor and you should absolutely get it if you're considering between 34-38" Ultra Wide monitors.

  • Best Monitor I've ever owned!
    Reviewed by tenknics - August 28, 2020

    Amazing panel, cannot be more satisified! Great picture quality, smooth/high FPS. Everything works great. The stand is a giant piece of junk though, especially at this price. My monitor wobbled and shook like crazy, definately not designed well to support the ultra-wide length. I mounted the monitor so its no longer an issue, but I just wanted to point it out in the review. Unacceptable stand at this price point.
