Product Snapshot

Overview

The LG 34WK95U is a high-end ultrawide office monitor released in July 2018. Unlike the older LG 34WN80C-B monitor, it is LG’s first ultrawide monitor that sports an IPS panel that promises to provide better colors, wide viewing angles, and fast response times, along with a whopping 5K native resolution.

LG claims that the display panel can reach about 600 nits of peak brightness under ideal conditions for superior visibility. It also sports superb color accuracy out of the box. Overall, it is well-positioned for buyers looking for a professional-grade monitor for productivity purposes.
