-HDR 400 certified
-Gsync compatible (48-144hz)
-external power brick (might be a con depending on how you feel)
-IPS 1ms response
-included cables are a bit short
Overall this is a solid display, but I'll be honest I was very nervous when I bought this because there were no reviews of this monitor on Amazon or anywhere on the internet that I could find. I guess it's because this is a new model that LG just introduced at CES 2020.
Anyway, it's 2020 and the reality of the panel lottery is still with us. I did lose some sleep the night before because I was very nervous of getting a bad panel or having the display damaged in transit or at the factory. When It arrived I was pleasantly surprised that the monitor box came inside another, larger box from amazon that included additional packing material to prevent the monitor from shock damage. When I opened the monitor the packing was firm and tight, and the first thing tat I did was to assemble the stand (very easy to do) and plug the monitor in with the included, but short, displayport cable and check for dead/stuck pixels or severe back light bleed. To my absolute amazement, I saw no dead pixels and back light bleed was nonexistent. IPS glow is there, but minimal and comes with the technology. I'm not sure if I just got lucky or if LG's QC process is just that good with these new monitors. This is my first LG monitor but I'm definitely going with them from now on. While most probably don't like the external power brick as it adds additional cable management, I actually like the modular approach in case it is faulty in the future or needs to be replaced. The displayport port is 1.4, so if you need some more reach you can do what I did and purchase a longer cable to suit your specific needs. HDR 400 is fine, but isn't as robust or clear as HDR 1000, but if you wanted that, you'll be paying more than twice the cost of this. The native 144hz works fine, as does the 165hz overclock, but I didn't use it since freesync/gsync works from 48-144hz. The panel is also 10 bit, which is a nice touch as well. Coming from a 27 inch 144hz TN panel I was expecting more blur from the lower response time of the pixels. I was wrong. I may not be a pro gamer or anything, but I do play a lot of fast paced games and I was amazed in the response time. There is merit to LG's claims of fast response, although I'm not sure if it is exactly 1ms. G sync works fine, as I have a GTX 1080TI, and haven't experienced any of the common problems that may happen with lower end freesync panels. This panel is certified with Nvidia as Gsync compatible, so I guess no problems should be expected there.
For its price, I couldn't find a monitor that checked as many boxes as this one did. Sure, there are ultrawides with HDR1000 and such, but come with other tradeoffs like running hot and annoying fans that are loud. There are also less featured ultrawides if you don't need HDR or 10 bit color, but at $1000 USD this monitor is priced right, and is a solid buy if you are entering the world of ultrawides for the first time like me. I do recommend buying it from Amazon if possible, as their return policy tends to be a bit more generous than others with regards to dead pixels/etc.
- 160Hz overclock vs 144hz
- Higher peak brightness by about 15% (Better HDR performance)
- Faster response time (Professional measured at 5.8ms vs 9.7ms on the 34gk950f-b)
- Improved black uniformity
- Better reflection handling (better screen coating)
It's important to note the advertised "response time" is never accurate. Not even the fastest TN panels can do an actual 1ms Gray to Gray when properly measured with a high speed camera. I really wish LG and almost every other company would stop this flat out dishonest marketing but, I digress.. The 850's real world measured response time is still an impressive 5.8ms. This is a noticeable improvement over the 950 model at 9.7ms. Most people will have a hard time noticing this. But if you play a lot of fast paced games you may. The LG 34GN850-B lacks black frame insertion, it would only be used with Freesnyc turned off. I believe that is why LG decided to not include it on this model. Its a feature most Gamers would ignore because the benefits of Freesnyc far outweigh BFI. The 850 also has a new stand. This is neither a pro or con. Its is just as stable as it predecessor and offer the same adjustments. Note that it is deeper. So you will need a couple more inches of desk depth.
I have owned both of these models now and can say with certainty that the LG 34GN850-B is definitely the best gaming experience I have ever had. I would highly recommend it if you are willing to stomach the cost. However if you are the proud owner of the LG 34GK950F-B, and happy with it there probably isn't quite enough to upgrade. Deciding between the two models is a no brainer though. Even with the newer model being slightly more expensive its worth it. You can actually get a decent HDR gaming experience now and the response time is a definite improvement if nothing else. After trying several 34" Ultrawide monitors over the past couple months including the flagships from DELL (Alienware), ASUS, ACER and LG, this is the one I kept. Nuff said.
Top reviews from other countries
The screen real estate of the ultrawide is great, I never feel like windows are too narrow in split screen like I used to with a 24in @ 1080p. I also colour calibrated the monitor and it barely changed from factory setting which means it was almost perfect from factory. There is an issue with IPS glow on IPS panels but it's not bad on this monitor, honestly I don't even notice it. The monitor controls are very good and intuitive with the joystick style controls. Brightness is programmed to up and down controls so you don't need to go through the menus every time to change it.
The biggest cons I see is:
1) lack of the ability to save custom user profiles
2) for the price, I don't understand why the stand cannot swivel (although I'm now using a monitor arm so I don't even use it anymore)
3) The power brick is not integrated into the monitor like others and the cable between the monitor to the brick is not very long. For the cables to route through my monitor arm, I had to mount the power brick onto the underside of my desk. Even when using the stand, the brick barely reached the ground and the last thing you want is a heavy brick hanging by the port of your monitor.
4) I had an incident of the monitor not turning on and the power brick buzzing after restarting my power bar when I was doing cable management. Replugging the cables and restarting the power bar again seemed to fix it and it hasn't happened since, so I'm not too concerned.
One thing that's not really a con but was inconvenient was that my initial monitor had a stuck pixel that wouldn't disappear despite my efforts to unstick it. I had to return it and order a new one but no issues since on the new one.
Gaming looks amazing but keep in mind that you need a powerful PC to fully utilize the specs of the monitor. I'm currently running a 1070ti and it is not cutting it, Assassin's Creed Odyssey on almost ultra quality runs at ~30 fps. Though games like Valorant can run at max settings with 144 fps.
Productivity is amazing as well. Photo and video editing is great with this level of colour accuracy. The screen real estate helps with the work flow significantly (expanded timelines in videos, multitasking, etc.).
I definitely would recommend if you're in the market for a ultrawide for gaming, productivity, and daily use. If you're just looking for a monitor for productivity, I'd look into other cheaper options that still have the colour accuracy minus the gaming features of 1ms, 144hz.
An issue I had was that I needed to fiddle around a little bit with the power cable/input to turn it on. Another small issue was that desktop speakers aren't sufficiently powered by the monitor's audio port. This may be a problem for those wanting to plug in desktop speakers into their monitor or have headphones with high impedance.
Build quality is also great, the included stand, while thin, does occupy lots of desk depth, but i recommend mounting it on a monitor arm for best ergonomics. Joystick control at the bottom for the monitor OSD is also very easy to operate and intuitive.
Only downside i would say is the mediocre HDR implementation, while technically HDR compatible, it does not make for an upgraded experience because of the lack of local dimming.
All around great monitor for gaming, media consumption and productivity, just note that once you get used to an ultra wide monitor, you may not ever want to go back traditional 16:9 monitors!
