144Hz Refresh Rate
Games played on the LG 34UC89G are noticeably smoother and clearer when compared to game play on monitors with refresh rates of 60Hz or 75Hz. Combine the clarity and smooth action with the curved screen, and gamers will fall in love with an optimized and immersive gaming experience.
UltraWide For A Gaming Advantage
The graceful curve of the screen offers an immersive gaming experience. The wider displays allows enhanced game play with the ability to see more of the game than on a 16:9 monitor.
With the Crosshair feature, gamers can take their skills to the next level. By placing the striking point in the center of the display, the feature enhances firing accuracy in first-person shooter games.
Advanced Gaming Features
Serious gaming features for serious gamers. Quickly optimize monitor settings to activate Black Stabilizer to reveal superior detail in dark scenes while the Dynamic Action Sync feature assures smooth, fluid gaming action.

First and foremost: these ultrawide IPS panels in general are notorious for having manufacturing defects that nobody willing to pay $1000 for a monitor is prepared to tolerate--and for good reason. The last time I tried to upgrade my monitor, I bought a 144Hz 27" IPS panel from Acer, and was mortified by the severity of the backlight bleed and color uniformity issues. I returned it immediately and decided to wait until manufacturing processes had improved significantly.
Looks like that's the case. Either that, or Acer and ASUS just suck at making huge IPS panels, and LG's good at it. There's a minuscule amount of backlight bleed on this one, but it's only noticeable if you're looking for it carefully, and even then only on a perfectly black screen in a dark room. I can't find a single dead pixel. Color uniformity is not PRECISELY perfect, but I think that's only because the thing is so wide that you actually have to move your head to be looking at the edges at the proper angle to see the colors exactly as they appear dead center, which is just the nature of LCD panels. Yes, there is IPS glow, which is easy to mistake for backlight bleed, and is merely a byproduct of IPS technology rather than a result of panel defects. How to tell the difference? Move your head around while staring at a black screen in a dark room, and whatever goes away when you look at it dead-on is IPS glow, while whatever looks the same from all angles is actual backlight bleed.
Anyway, that whole paragraph is just for touchy people like me; most people probably wouldn't care too much about those problems even on a panel that suffers from them.
I've noticed that many people in the ultrawide communities are deeply disappointed that this is a 1080p ultrawide rather than a 1440p one. Unfortunately, for the time being, if you want an ultrawide IPS panel, you have to choose between 3440x1400 @ 100Hz and 2560x1080 @ 144Hz. If you're a content creator first or desktop user first, by all means, the higher resolution will suit you well, but if you're a gamer, 1080p appears to be the better choice. I'm running a 7700K @ 4.9GHz with a 1080 Ti and even my rig can only just barely manage more than 140 fps in games like Overwatch and Battlefield 1 at 2560x1080. If I were playing at 3440x1440 it'd probably be difficult to manage even 100 fps. 1080p is much, much easier to drive than 1440p, and the higher your resolution, the more diminishing your returns are. I'll take a higher framerate at 1080p over a lower framerate at 1440p any day, and in a side by side comparison I'd wager that most gamers would make the same choice.
The color on this monitor is excellent. I don't have calibration equipment, but I'm fastidious about my color settings and this panel has the best out-of-box colors I've seen. It compares well to my LG OLED TV, which itself has better color than any LCD panel I've ever seen.
The various game mode settings are actually useful, rather than gimmicks that ultimately reduce the overall quality of the image. I'm surprised by how well the black stabilizer improves visibility of dark areas without utterly destroying the gamma or making everything look washed out. Mine's able to perform the 166Hz overclock just fine, but it does produce very minor artifacts that I was able to notice easily enough to be distracted by them, so I stick to 144Hz. Unless you're a professional CSGO player or something, I don't think you're going to need to cling to those extra 22Hz. There's a "fast" versus "normal" and even "slow" response time setting, but comparing the three of them I can't see any visible difference. Perhaps it only affects the pixel response time in very specific situations. At any rate, I leave it set to "fast" because it doesn't appear to hurt. G-Sync is G-Sync, although I don't think it's particularly useful above 120fps or so, and I leave it off to minimize input lag since I've been playing FPS games. It hurts that I've probably paid at least a few hundred bucks for this feature alone, but I bought this monitor because its specs are somewhat better than its Freesync counterpart, not for G-Sync in particular.
It's not the most blindingly bright monitor you'll ever see--the maximum setting probably wouldn't be adequate in direct sunlight, although it's more than enough for a well-lit room during the day. At night, I use about 60% of maximum, and in the dark, about 40%.
One of the things I'm most happy about is the fact that the arm is actually tall enough to raise the monitor to eye level sitting atop my desk which is at arm level. No more cardboard box platforms for me.
The OSD is snappy and easily navigable via the little joystick nub. It doesn't exactly wow me, but it works impeccably well.
My biggest gripe, actually, is probably the fact that there's some very slight wobble, but not enough to be bothersome. I'm a fast, aggressive typist, but I haven't noticed any wobble happening as a result of any of my interactions with the mouse and keyboard.
Overall, I could hardly be happier. The 34UC89G-B isn't utterly perfect (and how could it be, with a name like that), but in spite of its relatively high price it actually exceeds my expectations. If you want an ultrawide for gaming, don't want to have to compromise with a VA panel, and don't want to gamble on either Acer or ASUS who still, by the sound of it, have some serious QC issues with their current ultrawide IPS panels, this should be your choice.
The field of view is a definite advantage and I have been able to see about 20% more than with a standard monitor.
One note of caution is that if you use the HDMI connection then you are limited to 60 fps. The display port is the only connection that will support higher frame rates.
This screen is also not glossy so reflection is at a minimum.
I have been considering the purchase of this monitor for months now because of one reason and one reason only. The resolution. Almost every reviewer has complained about the 2560 x 1080 resolution and coming from a 27 inch 4K monitor I was also concerned. But I decided to give it a go and since having played games on it I have been blown away by how good it is, I cannot say enough good about this monitor. I had never experienced an ultra wide monitor or G-Sync or a refresh rate higher than 60Hz and I am impressed on how much these features improve gaming. But for anyone who is concerned about the resolution of this monitor, simply don't be.
All the games I currently play are 21:9 supported (which is a bonus) and I run a Hybrid EVGA 980 Ti. I can easily play on ultra settings above 100fps on all titles and averaging close to 120fps. Depending on the title I can see some dips to 90fps and maxing frames up to 144fps. Add G-Sync to this and it is one incredibly smooth experience, not one bit of tearing. I would imagine if I had chosen a 3440 x 1440 monitor I would have seen much lower frame rates, maybe being lucky to see just over 60fps on ultra. I have heard the rave reviews about how frames are more important than pixels and I can happily agree with these opinions.
If you have the money to buy a 3440 x 1440 monitor AND the money for the graphics card/system to run that resolution at a high refresh rate then this monitor won't be for you and you need not rant and carry on about how this monitor is unworthy. I have been unimpressed with the horrible designs and quality control and price of every 21:9 3440 x 1440 monitor currently available. LG are onto a winner here. The simplistic design, small bezels and especially the quality image production from this monitor are amazing. I cannot believe for the price that Acer/Asus/AOC (AU Optronics) are charging they are pumping out monitors with horrible back light bleed and IPS glow. The 34UC89G-B has some slight IPS glow in the corners on a complete black screen and that is all.
At this resolution I have even enjoyed web browsing and general computer use. The ultra wide 21:9 aspect ration is fantastic and is as every bit good as people say, unless the games you play do not support it. I even enjoy 16:9 videos content on this monitor as the black bars either side do not bother me however I think it would for games. Not having black bars top and bottom for movies is outstanding.
So this monitor isn't perfect. I do believe the price could be slightly cheaper, I paid $1250 here in Australia. In comparison the Acer Predator X34 is about $1400 AUD, but I wouldn't dare pay that for a lottery monitor. There is minor IPS glow in the very far corners, not noticeable unless on a complete black screen (or watching 16:9 content). It would be nice if there were a few custom or user options for screen settings and a really awesome feature that I would have made great use of an ultra wide would be a split screen or picture in picture function between the HDMI input and the Display Port. If I could have had a game console on half the screen and the PC on the other, that would be just so useful.
Overall I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to any PC gamer after a great ultra wide experience.
