The LG 34UM95-P 34" Class 21:9 UltraWide WQHD IPS Monitor is the ultimate multi-tasking tool. 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.
UltraWide Quad High Definition
The 3440X1440 UltraWide QHD display offers amazingly sharp picture quality. Its pixel area is about 1.8 times larger than an UltraWide Full HD 21:9 monitor and about 2.4 times larger than a Full HD 16:9 monitor. It provides an efficient environment in using Microsoft Office programs showing 47 columns and 63 rows in excel.
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.
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.
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.
Dual Link Up
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.
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.

Got it last night - no more slow web pages. That being the fix is odd to me and when I explained my issue to a few Apple Store floor reps they didn't expect the Thunderbolt to fix the issue. Happy it did. Love this monitor - no matter what apple comes out with (or if they come out with something) in June this is a great buy.

Good monitor - insufficient software
The monitor is very nice - works well and has a great picture and pretty good sound. However, the software supplied to permit automatically splitting the screen into halves and quarters does not work with Windows 8 running on a 64 bit system. I spent nearly an hour today on a chat line with LG trying to find out why they are still advertising that it does. No good response. Their only answer - go to Microsoft support for a fix. LG is aware of the problem but not telling customers in advance. ...View full Review

LG is aware of the problem but not telling customers in advance. After one fails several times following their instructions and then calls in they let you know. My recommendation - wait to see if they can work out the issue and then let the customers know.

don't really do a lot of reviews but I have been shopping around for a new monitor so I thought writing some reviews might help those in similar situations. The very first thing is the amazing 3440x1440p resolution which equates to a 21:9 ultrawide gaming experience. My goal was to find a display that served two purposes... 1 being a triple monitor gaming experience, 2 being a display that would allow me to multitask with several fullscreen windows without having shrunk down screen so to increase my productivity as I am an avid youtube'r, podcaster, twitch'r. My previous setup included 3x 23inch monitors all with seperate power adapters (bricks) and 3 hdmi/dvi cables. I have a very nice size desk but still having 6 cables for just my displays alone was annoying. I guess my second pro would have to be the various connections on this thing! Another reason I went with this display was because my previous TV got hit by lightning and I wanted to replace that at the same time. I am a huge movie/tv show buff so I found out that if I were to watch any 2:40:1 or around that, type movies that it would display in native full screen on this 21:9 monitor, or very close to it. It produces almost the same size frame of a very wide movie to that of a 42-48inch TV if you don't include the black bars on top of the movie of a regular 16:9 large tv set. If that all makes sense, you know what I mean. It is a great set for a large bedroom to a small living room since the aspect ratio really makes your movie experience a larger picture than you would have had with a even larger but smaller aspect ratio TV. Mountable: I installed it with an ergotron arm mount to my desk so i can move it where I want. Built-in speakers - don't use very much since it's hooked to my PC but I do have a roku 3 hooked up so I can watch from my bed and changed the volume. Headphone out if I want to hook it up some other way for audio output from other sources. The design is beautiful, chrome'ish frame. Controls are super easy with the joystick. Very good customization options on the OSD. The calibration software/splitscreen settings are great, even with non-widescreen videos. I really cannot think of a product I have bought in the past 10 years I would recommend more than this insanely cool monitor. I've been impressed by some product upgrades in the past and I am a very geeky tech person. If you want to make your gaming experience a more fun, immersive one or just make your productivity level a smooth one, this is the perfect choice. This monitor really made my dreams come true!
There are a lot of concerns about some of the early reviews of these monitors, so I'll address it: Backlight bleed: No issues on my model, aside from the standard IPS glow. My monitor was built in November 2014 so they may have addressed the backlight bleed issues from earlier reports by then, but I do not see anything in any of the corners and certainly nothing that comes up in my regular use of the screen. Resolution is fantastic and the screen is very sharp (as it should be with how high the pixel pitch is) - 3440x1440 is fantastic for productivity as well as being a lot of fun to use in games. Not all games support ultrawide resolutions 100%, but there are plenty of workarounds and this is no fault of the monitor itself. Colors are bright and vivid and out of the box calibration was very good. No dead pixels and no issues with glare or reflections. The only "negatives" I have are minor - Displayport behaves a little oddly when the monitor sleeps, but that's because Windows has a bad habit of rearranging and resizing the desktop when it detects a Displayport monitor turning off. A registry fix seems to have alleviated most of the issue but it still happens every so often. It's 60Hz so if you're going to balk about not being higher refresh rate and screen tearing, then it's not for you. I experience minimal tearing overall and the immersive width more than makes up for anything I notice, and this is a direct replacement for a 120Hz TN panel which was buttery smooth. I had them both hooked up for a few weeks and ended up giving the 120Hz to my wife to use because I had no interest in going back. It's so wide that some websites have layout issues - mostly islands of text in the middle of the big screen. I've been using the quite decent LG screen split software and experimenting with rations to figure out which works best for browsing, and so far the 2-way 16:5 split works the best overall, and it lets you adjust the ratio slightly by resizing the larger of the two sides. This is a great monitor with amazing display quality and very nice design - the height of the stand is a minor issue and I'm switching to a VESA mount monitor arm anyway, but if you've got it flat on your desk it can be a little low due to the minimally adjustable height. High price, but that's the penalty for being an early adopter of a nonstandard format. I still don't regret spending the money though - having your peripheral vision immersed in a game instead of cut by bezels is a great experience and well worth the price of admission. Just make sure you have powerful graphics card(s) to run it!
This monitor is by far the easy to use, most beautiful, and useful monitor I've ever owned. However it is also the most expensive monitor I've ever had. If you can justify the price, you'll never regret it. My monitor has an acceptable amount of back light bleed, they all will have it. Gaming: Great Movie streaming: Okay, Netflix and amazon instant video don't support the aspect ratio so your left with a black border all around the image. YouTube has some videos formatted perfectly for this screen but most are not. Productivity: Amazing, having 3 documents open on the same screen with no bezels or need to zoom pages out is amazing. The only negative thing i have to say is i have a small line of dead pixels on mine. nothing massive or intrusive but its there. Ill be looking into the return policy.
If you are looking for a monitor with lots of real estate and a high level of quality look no further! It is probably one of the finest monitors I have ever owned. I am sure you will be pleased as well.
I bought this monitor to replace two 27-inch wide-gamut monitors. The previous monitors used way too much power--200 watts total. I felt guilty every time I turned them on. This one hovers around 50 watts once calibrated. Plus, wide-gamut monitors work best with software built to take advantage...so Photoshop and Lightroom worked wonderfully, but Microsoft Office and other apps looked over-saturated. The LG monitor exhibited far better out-of-the box color, grayscale, and uniformity than the other, more expensive monitors. It's bright, yet relaxing to the eye. You see no screen reflection once it's turned on. I put it on a VESA mounting arm, so the lack of stand flexibility is not an issue for me. I love the USB hub/KVM switch; it really cleaned up my desktop. The Split Screen feature was a little gimmicky for me; I like software like WinSize2 that automatically sends each app to the onscreen place I choose. Bottom line: Best monitor I've ever owned!
I love the size and resolution! It is like having 2 monitors in front of you (without a space between them)... I cut my mouse clicks by half!
I am using this with a pre-Thunderbolt Mac mini (late 2010) via HDMI. The USB ports do not work at all on the screen when configured this way. There is also no ability to control screen brightness through the keyboard. The user manual cautions against using a cable other than Thunderbolt certified cables in the Thunderbolt port, so it would seem that I should not use a mini DVI to try and solve the USB and keyboard functionality issues. If I can verify these issues are not due to internal problems I will probably keep this due to significant increase in horizontal screen space versus a 27 Mac Cinema Display. I can live with using a USB splitter on my mac and controlling brightness via the on-screen control menu. I have also encountered static type pops when connecting/disconnecting devices.
If you want to use the split screen option make sure that the connection between your computer and your monitor is dvi,hdmi,displayport split screen option will not work with two monitors connected on your computer if you have a dual monitors connected on your computer for windows o.s based computer you need to change the multiple display settings you need to choose Show desktop only on 2 or show desktop only on 1 it depends on your primary monitor
I can't say enough great things about this monitor. The quality is amazing and I love the size. I only have one small complaint and it's not going to matter to most folks. I only wish that they put the power switch on a separate button since the only one to use is the same as the one to maneuver all settings.
Love the style and function. I use Citrix with several windows open and the software from LG giving split screen options is spot on for me.. Looks much better than my wife's apple panel and she really likes the hight to width vs her thunder bold display.. We are currently trying to sell her display and will buy another LG for her.
