The 3440 x 1440 resolution is something that many find very enjoyable when gaming, watching suitable movie content or simply using the desktop. The LG 34WP65C (34WP65C-B owing to mainly black rear) offers this in high refresh rate VA flavour. The styling is simple, with a crescent-shaped stand base, cylindrical stand neck and matte black materials used extensively. The top and side bezels feature the now common dual-stage design, with slender panel border flush with the rest of the screen. And a slim hard plastic outer part. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick facing downwards in the centre of the bottom bezel.
A 34″ 3440 x 1440 (21:9 UltraWide) VA panel from CSOT is employed, with 1800R curve to draw you into the experience a bit and potentially enhance viewing comfort. A 160Hz refresh rate is supported alongside Adaptive-Sync, including AMD FreeSync Premium with a 48 – 160Hz VRR range (plus LFC). Other aspects of note include a light to very light matte anti-glare screen surface, 3000:1 static contrast ratio and 178°/178° viewing angles. 10-bit (8-bit + FRC) colour is supported, whilst a flicker-free WLED backlight offers a 300 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and 90% DCI-P3 colour gamut. A ‘Reader Mode’ Low Blue Light (LBL) setting is included to promote a more relaxing viewing experience. HDR10 support is included, allowing the monitor to leverage 10-bit colour and put its reasonably wide gamut to good use. But this does not necessitate particularly high brightness levels by HDR standards or require local dimming.
A 5ms grey to grey response time is specified (caution advised), alongside a 1ms MPRT response time using the included MBR (Motion Blur Reduction) strobe backlight setting. An integrated low input lag feature is included – Dynamic Action Sync (DAS). The stand attaches centrally using a quick-release mechanism, with removal of the stand revealing 100 x 100mm VESA holes. The stand offers tilt and height (110mm or 4.33 inches) adjustment. The ports face backwards to the right of the stand, in a recessed area, and include; DP 1.4, 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack and DC power input (external ‘power brick’). 2 x 7W MaxxAudio speakers are included for potentially quite rich and powerful sound output.
Further information can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is listed for ~$500 USD.
