Thoughts on this LG 34 inch nano IPS Ultrawide

Recommended Posts

Is it good for MSFS in terms of picture quality? I can get it used for EUR 599.

Thanks

It's a good monitor - consistently well reviewed by sites and users. Think you'd probably be be happy with it. What GPU are you using?

This indeed is a very good monitor. I have been using mine for about 6 mos now and have had no problems. Very good performance and it is G.sync compatible.

I'd snap it up if I were you. Ultrawide is the way to go with MSFS, unless you go VR. I have an ultrawide, albeit a less expensive one, but I LOVE flying on this monitor.

Next up: VR...someday.

Just saw in your sig that you're currently using a 32" 4K screen. Are you not happy with that one? Going from that to the 34" one might lead to mixed feelings. On one hand your FPS will go up as I think the 3440x1440 would have about 50% less pixels compared to the 4K screen. But on the other hand you'll be noticeably losing some vertical real estate going from 2160 down to 1440. If you were coming from a 27" 4K I think the trade-off would be more favourable but maybe not so much going from 32" to 34". Something to consider maybe anyway.

There are other options as well such as the 3840 x 1600 resolution monitors which would sit in between the two. They're usually 38" monitors too which is a nice boost in size over a 32" which helps with the visual trade-off maybe. But they can run a bit pricey.

Oh I've actually returned it, wasn't happy with it. I'm running an Acer IPS 32 ich 1440p panel. Been using it for 2 years. 1440p is plenty for me, my 3070 can't handle 4k on ultra.

I've actually received the LG Ultrawide, first impressions, very positive, love the curve & the screen is much brighter than mine. Getting around 35-40 FPS on ultra, seems smoother too, maybe because of G-sync?

Yes - a combination of Gsync and less demanding performance at 1440p should make for smoother gameplay. Sounds like you have a keeper there.

After using it for a day I'm already hooked it's such a gorgeous monitor. I could definitely enjoy a 38 inch version but that's like 1,000 euros more and too many pixels for my poor 3070 I think. Got this one for 599 euros.

I use a 38" 3840 x 1600 monitor with a 2080ti which is basically comparable to your 3070. Most stuff is on ultra and runs smoothly but I don't fly heavies out of big airports. It'd be about 25% more demanding than what you have now. But yeah would cost you a chunk more cash - I justified it to myself as it's my main work monitor as well. You got a good deal on what you have now and it's a really good monitor.

What is the reference of your monitor? Coming from 32 inch, my only "complaint" is that this monitor is shorter. I am assuming a 38 inch ultrawide is like a 32 inch 16:9 with the added horizontal space. But yeah, huge difference in flight simming, much more immersive, the one downside of ultrawide is the black bars when viewing youtube or movies.

It's the AW3821DW. It'd be nearly the same height as a 32" monitor with the extra width on the side. It's still a 21:9 screen though so there'll be black bars for 16:9 videos and unsupported games. But that doesn't really bother me as I don't watch much full screen video and all games I've run so far have worked fine. I'm very happy with it so far as a dual game/work screen. Was a bit pricey but was discounted when I got it and was able to get a further discount as my workplace has an agreement with Dell so was about €1250 in the end.

That looks like a great monitor, well done, I think I'll force myself to reason & stick with this one for now hehe, thanks again for all your help!

And it has HDR! I am still wondering if I get the Dell AW2721D with HDR (760 euros), Dell AW3420DW with no-HDR but 21:9 (863 euros) or the Acer X34P with 21:9 and 10 bit (950 euros).

Difficult decision!
