|Product Alert: IPS (In-Plane-Switching) is a technology for LCD displays that offers users wider viewing angles and bolder colors by allowing more light to pass through the panel. As a result, IPS panels can exhibit a slight glow around the edges and corners (also known as light bleed), which is entirely normal.

From the manufacturer
The LG UM95 UltraWide monitor is the ultimate multi-tasking tool - 34UM95
The 21:9 aspect ratio combined with the 4 Screen Split feature lets you view 4 different documents at the same time minimizing the need to flip back and forth between multiple documents. Color representation is also very accurate with sRGB 99% making this the ideal monitor for professionals like photographers and graphic designers. But, the UM95 isn't all work and no play. Because this model has Ultra Wide Quad Definition (UQHD) the picture quality combined with the 21:9 wide screen makes watching movies or playing video games an immersive experience. Thunderbolt supports high resolution displays and high performance data devices through a single port allowing you to take advantage of transfer speeds up to 20Gps and expand computing capabilities.
The UltraWide 21:9 aspect ratio makes movies and games more immersive than ever. Need to get some work done, too? All of that UltraWide real estate makes it easy to view multiple documents at the same time, so you don't need to flip back and forth between them.
Graphic designers will surely appreciate the many features of LG's Mac-compatible UltraWide monitor. The 21:9 widescreen and 4-Screen Split will simplify working with multiple graphics windows.
Disclaimer: Mac is a trademark of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.
sRGB is the standard color space of ideal color reproduction. So, with over 99% coverage of the sRGB spectrum, this LG monitor is a great solution for professional photographers, graphic designers or anyone looking for highly accurate color.
*Disclaimer: Color mode conversion between Adobe RGB and sRGB is available on the "Color Mode" menu.
Multitasking doesn't have to mean shuffling back and forth between windows. With a single click, the 4-Screen Split feature divides the screen into as many as four customizable segments, two-by-two. Now you can see four different windows at the same time.
Disclaimer: *Screen Split software runs on Windows Vista/7/8 and Mac OS.
The Dual Linkup feature allows two compatible portable devices--such as a computer, camera, phone, or Blu-ray player--to be connected to the monitor, and both can be viewed on the same screen simultaneously.
* To use Dual Linkup, one device must be connected to the DisplayPort while the other is connected to either the HDMI or DVI port.
This monitor's Thunderbolt input/output port allows you to connect up to six compatible devices, moving data between them with incredible speed. The two channels of 10-gigabits-per-second throughput in both directions are up to 20X faster than USB 2.0. Thunderbolt is an exciting innovation for both expansion and premium video display.
The DisplayPort digital video interface is used to connect a high-performance video source to a high-resolution monitor. Thanks to its sophisticated design, a DisplayPort cable can also be used to carry audio, USB signals and other data as well.
LG's LED backlighting delivers exceptional brightness and amazing image clarity. You'll see richer colors and deeper blacks too, and LEDs offer greater energy efficiency compared to conventional LCD monitors.
IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology enhances the performance of liquid crystal displays. Response times are shortened, color reproduction is improved, and users can now view the screen at virtually any angle.
Hardware Calibration Ready
Looking for the ultimate in fine-tuning for your LG monitor? This model is designed to work with compatible calibration devices* that take specific readings and guide you through precise adjustments of color, brightness and more.
Disclaimer: *Hardware Calibration support may differ depending on user's environment. Calibrator sold separately.
5M:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
A dynamic contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 is your assurance of strong video performance, with deep blacks, bright whites and pleasing colors.

First off it's wide, very wide. It's the same aspect ratio of ultra-widescreen movies. It's the same hight as a 27" 2560 X 1440 display with an additional 3-4 inches to each side--hence the 3440 resolution. It's light..about 1/2 the weight of my Apple cinema display being that all metal and glass and this being mostly plastic. It comes pre-calibrated but I had to tinker with the menu to get it to my preferrences.
It's matt screened but hardly, and I mean HARDLY. I can see detailed reflections in it. The anti-glare coating is very, VERY light. So light that I wouldnt even class it as matt. It's semi-glossy in my opinion with just enough matt to throw off harsh glares. It runs a smooth 60Hz via DisplayPort and Thunderbolt and 50Hz via HDMI. I guess for hard-core gamers a 120Hz would be desirable but I could never tell any difference. It's plenty fast for me as well with a 5MS responce time.
The real winner here for me is the back I/O ports. The thing has a built-in KVM switch and/or Thunderbolt dock. What I have is a brute of a PC and a late 2013 retina MacBook Pro. Both are plugged into the I/O on the back and both run native resolution and sound without any need for any KVM switch! Its built right into the menu on the display. Choose your input and the rear I/O does the magic. I am ONLY using the Thunderbolt port and cable running to my MacBook Pro. Nothing else. No USB, audio, nothing. I am using the display's USB "uplink" to plug into my PC, and then I plug in my only keyboard and only mouse in the back USB "In" ports on the back of the display. All I need to do is use the display's joystick menu controller and switch inputs and its works like a charm! USB data, audio, and display video are all carried over the single Thunderbolt cable to my Mac and the PC is controlled via the USB cables. Wow.
Totally awesome and immersive to the core. I have seperate speakers for my PC and the audio from my Mac is passed into the displays speakers which are really not bad.
All in all, this display is what I've waited for years to obtain and it's here.
I have been trying to edit my review for a couple weeks now but Amazon wouldn't let me until it became available again.
1) I apologize for my terrible puncuation and spelling originally as I was in a real hurry and excited. It's fixed.(hopefully)
2) I wasn't aware that audio was carried over both Thunderbolt and DisplayPort. I just plugged in my external speakers into the audio out (headphone jack) on the back I/O port on the display and chose the LG UM3495 as my audio out choice on both the PC and Mac and that gets carried over too. The KVM funcionality works with this and switches it as well. Awesome!
3) I have recently purchased a current Mac Mini and can say that the Mini, through Thunderbolt, DOES push this resolution 100% BUT at 50Hz. I can rarely see some hesitation when opening windows through the Mini because of the lack of descrete graphics but that's it. The Mini does just fine. It even pushes some older games at full res without any tearing or screen jitters. If you have a 2012 or later Mini (Intel graphics 4000), this display will work at full res but at 50Hz.
If you are purchasing this monitor for gaming or movie watching, the bleed is very visible and intrusive during any dark scenes or whenever there is a cut to black. I have attached an image of my bleed problem.
When the screen is in full color, the colors are deep and vibrant. It is a gorgeous display. The mat finish is definitely a plus and the extra screen real estate certainly would have made this monitor the ultimate workflow optimization tool.
So far, Amazon has handled my return seamlessly. Am currently waiting for the refund to appear in my statement.
It is tempting for Mac people to gravitate to Apple's 27" Thunderbolt Display, but my last computer was a 2009 iMac that had they same screen as the Apple Thunderbolt Display, and I just could not deal with the glare anymore. Other reviewers have said that the LG 34UM95 is like a stretched Apple Thunderbolt Display and I tend to agree. For comparison, the LG 34UM95 is a 34" 21:9 aspect ratio at a resolution of 3440 by 1440; while the Apple Thunderbolt Display is a 27" 16:9 aspect ratio at a resolution of 2560 by 1440. Notice that they are both 1440 tall, but the LG 34UM95 is 880 pixels wider. When the LG 34UM95 is off it looks short and wide, but when it is on it seems really large.
The actual pixel area of the LG 34UM95 (as in the the part of the monitor that lights up, and not the bezel) is 31.5 inches (80 cm) wide and 13.25 inches (33.7 cm) tall. The DPI of the Apple Thunderbolt Display is about 108 dpi, and the LG 34UM95 is about 109 dpi, so effectively the same. The left, top, and right bezel of the LG 34UM95 is actually LCD and not a piece of plastic or glass; only the bottom bezel is plastic, so be careful when touching the sides or top of the monitor as you can damage it. I would recommend downloading the manual from LG's website before unboxing the monitor because it has a special section on how to move and touch the monitor without damaging it. I have to wonder if the people complaining about light-bleed problems happen to grab or unbox the monitor wrong and accidentally caused the light-bleed problems.
Speaking of moving the monitor around, I also have the LG 34UM95 mounted on a Ergotron LX desk mount arm (tall pole). Ergotron recommends the MX arm because of the 34 inch size of the LG monitor, but I have had it mounted on the LX arm for 2 months now and have experience no problems. The LG 34UM95, without the base (as in the monitor alone) weighs 14.9 pounds (6.75 kg), and the Ergotron LX can hold up to 25 pounds (11.3 kg). Also, the LG 34UM95 has a VESA size of 100 x 100 (mm), and so does the Ergotron LX, so it just screws on perfectly; no extra plates or adaptors are necessary.
As others have said, this monitor is a productivity game changer. For example, at 125% zoom, I can get 4 legal pages side by side. In Microsoft Excel I can see, at 125% zoom, 63 rows and 41 columns. In a DAW like GarageBand or Logic Pro X, you will be happy with how much of a track you can see and still have effects and other panels open. Same thing for working in video editors, the length of timeline visible at one time is just great, and I find that I do not have to resize and minimize panels like I use to. If you are a video editor working in 4K or higher, I would recommend using the LG 34UM95 as the monitor for the video editor you are using, and then a secondary 4K monitor to output that footage.
Both Photoshop and Illustrator are great to use on this monitor because you can leave all the panel open and still have plenty of room for the art board workspace. I was never fond of having all my tool palettes on one monitor and my workspace on another monitor, because I prefer to surround my workspace with the tools I am using and have then as close as possible. Effectively, if you are working with lots of documents and spreadsheets, audio, video, illustration, photos, and graphics you will enjoy this monitor.
I have used my LG 34UM95 everyday for the last 2 months for about 9 to 10 hours a day, and I am very pleased with it. Colors are vibrant and the white balance excellent. I do not need more then the sRGB 99% coverage that this monitor has for the work that I do, but if you need to meet Adobe RGB color reproduction then that is something to consider. The LG 34UM95 is factory calibrated and LG includes the calibration report for each specific monitor inside the box alongside the monitor manual. I did not think any color changes need to be made with my monitor right out of the box. I did test the calibration with my X-Rite ColorMunki, which made only brightness changes because of the lighting in my room; so as others have said color calibration right out of the box is very good.
Finally, I have some small side notes for other Mac users based on what I have experience with this monitor. Connecting this monitor over Thunderbolt is quite nice. I have the Apple numeric keyboard, a Blue Yeti USB microphone, and a USB thumb drive all in the back of the LG monitor along its USB hub; all of which send their data through the connected Thunderbolt cable to my MacBook. To be clear, only the Thunderbolt cable is connecting my MacBook to the LG monitor, everything else is plugged into the USB hub of the LG monitor. Everything runs fine and everything can be running at the same time. Audio from the MacBook is sent along the Thunderbolt cable, so you can choose to use the monitor speakers (which are surprisingly okay for monitor speaker) or connect headphones to the 3.5mm headphone jack on the back of the monitor. What does not work is the audio buttons on the Apple keyboard, but you have two choices: one, use the joystick controller on the bottom of the LG monitor to toggle the volume (where toggle left is volume down and toggle right is volume up), or two, try to use the volume sliders in apps.
My MacBook is in clamshell mode as I type this, which means the laptop is on but the lid is shut while it is powering the LG monitor. The 2014 15" MacBook Retina has no problems powering and running this monitor at full 3440x1440 resolution and at 60 Hz refresh rate. For MacBook users that also have discrete graphics you should know that the graphics card will always be on while you are connected to the monitor. I thought that since the 2014 Retina MacBook has both Intel Iris Pro Graphics and a discrete NVIDIA 750M graphics card that the Intel Iris Pro would handle the monitors and only use the NVIDIA when necessary, so I was surprised to find it always on. It does not matter whether the MacBook is open alongside the LG monitor, or closed and in clamshell mode, the discrete graphics card is always on as long as the LG monitor is on. This does create a little bit more heat on the MacBook, since the laptop would normally cycle the discrete graphics card on and off when using the laptop by itself. Switching from a Thunderbolt cable to a DisplayPort cable does not change anything for the discrete graphics card, it is still always on when connected to an external monitor.
I know this was a long review, but when considering an item such as this it helps to have as much information as possible, so I hope this was helpful.
