Not to be outdone, LG revealed a trio of its own ultrawide monitors at IFA. They might not rock quantum dots, but they’re rife with pretty much every other feature you can think of. (And crappy names.)
The $1,500 38UC99 packs a mammoth 38-inch, curved IPS screen with a 3840×1600 resolution and a wide color gamut covering 99 percent of the sRGB color space. This beast is built for image and video editors, in other words, and it includes niceties like integrated speakers with enhanced bass and a USB-C port for charging your phone.
The 34-inch 34UC79G is the first 144Hz curved, ultrawide IPS monitor, according to LG. Though the screen resolution wasn’t announced, the monitor supports FreeSync and includes several other gamer-friendly features, including the ability to show a crosshair in the center of the display. You know, if you want to be a filthy cheater. It’ll set you back $700.
Finally, the $600 34UM79M is still an ultrawide, but with a flat screen and baked-in Google Cast support.
