Picture Quality

LG 34UM69G-B has an amazing picture quality thanks to the ultra wide resolution which is also the preferred resolution by most people. IPS panels tend to have the best colors but not the best response rates. But don’t get us wrong because this monitor is great for gaming. The contrast ratio isn’t the best out there but still it produces great colors, mostly because of the IPS panel. The brightness is good too but not the best that we have seen. We will give 4.5/5 points for LG 34UM69G-B review part of the picture quality.

Features

LG 34UM69G-B also comes with some very useful features where the most important one is the free sync technology. This feature removes image tearing and provides a smooth gaming experience. Another good gaming feature is the black stabilizer that can really bring objects out of the shades. Also the DAS (Dynamic Action Sync) feature is great when playing action games as it minimizes input lag. The screen can also be divided in lots of different ways and this comes in handy when you are working. LG 34UM69G-B also has all the essential connectivity including one type c port and it has two built-in speakers with 7W power each, which is great. Other important features are flicker safe technology and 1ms motion blur reduction. We will give 5/5 points for LG 34UM69G-B review part of the features.

Design

LG 34UM69G-B has also a great design. The color looks good and it can adapt in any room. The stander looks good too and it is not too big or exaggerated. It has the common flexibility but nothing special worth to mention, simple and great. We will give 5/5 points for the LG 34UM69G-B review part of the design.

★★★★★ 5 out of 5 stars.

AMAZING AND GIGANIMOUS
Beautiful monitor! Build quality is excellent. I was a little nervous about the stand but it’s extremely stable. I was also surprised that there was zero dead pixels. Factory calibration was very good as well. The speakers are pleasantly decent. I wouldn’t use them all the time but they are decent for when you don’t want to wear headphones.

★★★★★ 5 out of 5 stars.
WONDERFUL
If you are looking for a budget gaming ultra wide then look no more. The picture for this price range is fabulous and the adjustable height stand with tilt is a nice feature. HDMI, Display Port and USB-C connections. USB-C. make sure you get a 20GB or higher transfer rate or no video signal for you.

★★★★★ 5 out of 5 stars.

Very Pleased with this monitor for the price $214 on Cyber Mon 2017. I had 2 24 inch monitors hooked to Mac Book Pro, after new OS the second monitor had a blue tint and I was using both Lightning ports to hook up both monitors. This one is hooked up with HDMI cable and it looks amazing. Now my Lightning ports are available. Recommended for sure.

★★★★★ 5 out of 5 stars.
I really like this monitor. Been wanting an ultra wide that was affordable yet loaded with useful options. Gaming is very immersive and 75hz is great for me. The ease of changing preset and custom video settings with a push of a button is fantastic. Highly recommended.
★★★★★ 5 out of 5 stars.
My first impression of this is that it is absolutely huge, in a good way. I went from a 24 inch to this 34 inch monitor and the difference is epic. I never thought I would consider a monitor to be TOO bright, but wow I have this one on 50% and it’s too bright at night and perfect in the day. The screen has great color and the speakers are passable (but please.. invest in some decent speakers). The monitor seems well built, but contrary to video reviews, it does NOT have 2 screws holding it to the base, that was an old design. Now it has one screw instead (still held on well though!). I’d highly recommend this monitor at the price I payed ($204 on Black Friday 2017), and at 280 (at the time of this writing) still seems like a decent deal. Huge upgrade over a boring old 24 inch monitor.

★ 1 out of 5 stars.
Purchased it during cyber Monday sale. It looked great and the screen is huge! I loved the first look. When I turned on the monitor, I can see faint vertical lines which are more apparent in lighter colored background. It looks like the vertical lines are burnt in to the screen. Bothered me a lot while watching a movie or watching YouTube. Tried different cables and did troubleshooting with the Amazon tech help but did not solve the issue. I will have to return it or exchange it but since amazon doesn’t have it on stock right now, I can’t exchange it. Would have been a great monitor otherwise but it is disappointing that I got a defect.

★ 1 out of 5 stars.
This monitor was purchased at a great price on Black Friday! Was waiting and very eager to receive the screen and give it a try, especially after all the positive reviews I’ve read about it.
To my surprised this monitor is stuck at it’s highest position! I’m 6ft tall and I still have issues when sitting down and trying to use this monitor. You tend to look up at the monitor instead of being centered with your view.
Ultra wide at 34′ Is too stretched out if you try to play a game like Starcraft or DOTA. Even counter-strike looked off and stretched to a point that it looks funny for the first 20 minutes until you realize everything looked better on my old 30 inch average dell monitor.
Still in search for a new monitor after returning this one. Highly disappointed and you should see the monitor in person before you make this purchase in my opinion.

Conclusion

LG 34UM69G-B is a great monitor overall. The picture quality is amazing and especially the colors. The response rate is not the best out there but it is not terrible either. The most important features are the free sync technology, the black stabilizer and dynamic action sync. Design is great and so is the price. We hope our LG 34UM69G-B review has been helpful to you.

Should I buy LG 34UM69G-B?
