The choice of a gaming monitor, at least as far as the PC world is concerned, is now particularly challenging, given the multitude of companies that compete to make sure they have the best product in every area, and for the various price ranges that always offer more in terms of possibilities. This is obviously a positive aspect, and as the market evolves, companies are also aiming to offer more and more accessible innovations, just as it has recently done. LG with his new article. Let’s talk about the gaming monitor LG 34GN850 UltraGear, with 21: 9 ratio it’s a truly formidable tonnage, which presents itself in the homes of players with the task of offering enviable immersion, so let’s find out all the details about it in this review.
Not for all stations (and users)
Interfacing with the product box, rather easy to open but which requires the right support base given the size, we are faced with a rather minimal product. The package contains the right wiring, the gaming monitor, instructions and little else, also considering the support base that must (obviously) be mounted. The monitor (here the link for the purchase) LG 34GN850 UltraGear supports it VESA standard 100 × 100, but obviously most users will enjoy its experience with the classic game setup setup. Once you have easily installed the V-shaped base, which is quite large, it shouldn’t even be necessary to consult the instructions given the intuitiveness of the process,n rather elegant product. It’s easy to swap the item for any graphics monitor, which has left the glitz of other gamer-focused products at home, which underscores how this one has been designed to fit all locations.
As the name suggests, the monitor has a 34 inch size, but thanks to the base it is possible to adjust it in height to the user’s liking. Unfortunately, it is not possible to proceed also with the rotation, which however is not particularly a defect, since we are talking about a curved panel with 1900R radius in 21: 9, which almost manages to surround the user to offer maximum immersion. On the back we find two HDMI 2.0 ports (not recommended, since they limit the functionality of the device), one Display Port 1.4, 2 USB 3.0 A is 1 USB 3.0 B, and finally 1 x 3.5mm jack input and power port. Speaking of the latter, it is good to specify in this monitor review LG 34GN850 UltraGear that the company has opted for an external power supply in order to reduce the overall weight, a choice that is unlikely to make some users unhappy, even if it is obviously necessary to equip themselves so as not to create confusion with the various cables.
All this is extremely solid and of quality, hardly exposed to wear over time due to unsuitable materials that some companies adopt, and the product can really change the perception of gaming for some users. It must be said that both the tonnage and the positive and negative sides of 21: 9 make the product unsuitable for some users, who perhaps prefer a panel suitable for their gaming consoles and are not willing to accept the black bands. that are proposed by games that do not support this proportion.
True in-game immersion
As already mentioned, the panel undoubtedly favors in-game immersion, thanks to its potential and the thousand adjustments possible thanks to the lever at the bottom. The monitor shows up with UltraWide QHD 3440 × 1440 resolution, HDR 400 it’s a 98% DCI-P3 coverage, pretty good. Further technologies ensure a particularly complete product, come on 144Hz which make it suitable for frenetic and competitive games, which can be increased up to 160Hz thanks to overclocking, full support for NVIDIA’s GSync and AMD’s FreeSync to avoid screen tearing, passing through the Black Stabilizer which accentuates the details in the dark areas in-game. The panel is a 1ms Nano IPS, which provides versatility for further uses outside of gaming, although of course the final effect does not guarantee absolute blacks, but color fidelity is certainly promoted.
We tried the in-game monitor, focusing on both multiplayer and single player titles, obtaining fantastic results in both cases, and we want to repeat, an out-of-the-ordinary immersion. It must be said that with the arrival of the black bands due to the lack of support at 21: 9, the magic tends to die out, and the most demanding gamers could therefore choose to combine this panel with a classic 16: 9 for certain games. The integrated menu is quite intuitive, and even if the adjustment lever is certainly not the most comfortable method, it manages to do its job with a few smudges, allowing users to better configure the device to adapt it to their preferences already in the lap. a few minutes.
