The curved version is selling for $1200+
It's a real shame, if this was the curved version I would buy it instantly, even though it's a hella expensive monitor!
Can we just have 34um95 please?
we need the asus rog swift..................
over 1000 votes on this LG monitor and yet only 2 people bought it. what the heck?
Wait, this is 1080... That's going to be some absolutely horrible pixel density, as far as I can tell.

Its vertical pixel count is still 1080, yes, but its horizontal count is 2560 rather than standard 1920. Its pixel density would not be any worse than any other 1080p display of similar vertical height.
What is the difference between LG 34UM64 vs LG 34UM65?
I want a 21:9 monitor at 2560 x 1080 as that is the most supported by my laptop's graphics card, but I can't fathom why someone would want that, relatively low, resolution on a monitor of this size?!?! The pixel density on the 29" version is great, and makes total sense at that size for use on a desk. I would be all in for a drop of that model. All you get with this one is added expense. For less than half this price one could get just as much usefulness...

Not sure who this monitor is marketed towards, the pixel density on this thing is going to be horrid, given the size. really needs to be atleast 1440p.
Yeah, this is the low resolution version. Not going to be very sharp.
Wish there was the option for the LG 34UM94 or 34UC97!

There are 2 others drops for these monitors
Beware that this monitor is of very low resolution. This wont give you 34' space, only a stretched, bad looking experience. Its fine for movies, but anything with text or sharp graphics will look extremely bad on it, games/text in general, specially coding.
My 27' has native resolution, 2580x1440 (higher than this monitor), its not retina either, just has the correct pixel to inch ratio like normal monitors, the bigger the display, the more pixels it should have or it will stretch the image and look pixelized, 21' should have 1960x1680, 27' 2580x1440 and so on.
Does it have Thunderbolt ?

What? Thunderbolt is the same port a mini DisplayPort

Not exactly. Read more here: http://www.cnet.com/news/confusing-mini-displayport-with-thunderbolt/ And in any case, these monitors do not have a miniDP port
I have this monitor, and use it as my external display for my mid 2010 15" MBP. It works amazingly well over a MiniDisplayport to Displayport cable.
For comments about it "only" being 1080 vertical resolution, unless you're doing some high resolution photo editing, you will be just fine with this monitor.
As a coder, this is my main work monitor, and I could give a shit about it having a really high pixel density.
The main draw for this monitor is the form factor and the aspect ratio, which I'm absolutely sold on.
When used with a window management app like Moom, this monitor is amazing.
I typically break the screen up into 3 vertical columns, with my terminal on the left third, and an editor in the 2 remaining thirds. Depending on what I'm doing though, it's nice to be able to bounce around to half & half, or 3 side-by-side windows.

As an IT schlub who does not do "high resolution photo editing" I wouldn't be "just fine" with this monitor. Pixel density isn't all about getting the prettiest PNG on the screen, it's about how many remote desktop windows can I get on my screen without having to shuffle windows or having to use the annoying scroll bar. It's about being able to see more than one log file or memory dump on the screen with more than ten lines showing at a time. 1080 sucks my productivity down the tubes. My laptop has a WQHD screen (3200x1800) and I wouldn't trade it for the world. If I was setting up a workstation at home with a multi-mon set up, I might consider 2+ of these for portrait mode, but not for a single screen.
I agree on high res for developers wanting more code at the same time. I'm hoping we can get the LG 31mu97 on here
$164 postage?!! Wtf where did you get that number from? Up your f'cking ass. It costs less money to ship a whole pc than that. Please mass drop fix your international shipping rates... It shouldn't cost more than $40
jake93s
Pretty sure they couple in repacking/distribution costs into the shipping instead of showing those values separately
Tthere is a reason it's cheaper than the 34um95 at 1440 pixels high. A good productivity monitor.

Wait, BIOS Version A18?? Sorry, not a chance. If you had had A19 or even A17B-2 (God how I miss BIOS A17B-2) you'd have had a chance, but I don't know a single person who's gotten this monitor to work with BIOS Version A18, and that's the truth!
starsarethebest9
umm... Its a monitor. you're worried about compatibility?
1080 on 34" - what is this? This doesn't seem like the same one that getting rave reviews all over the web... We want the good one!!!
Chocol8milkman
The other one just finished a two week long drop a few days ago!
There are two polls on the site, one for the one you're referring to, and a second poll with over 3000 votes that has this monitor as the clear choice of the community.

Some only offer a 1 year warranty, so watch out for that!
34" monitor with only 1080 vertical resolution? This is some kind of joke, right?

Wow, what is a joke is your lack of knowledge... The resolution is 2560 pixels wide by 1080 high... Read the info guys!
JustARandom234
"2560 pixels wide by 1080 high" is exactly what ponteus meant by "only 1080 vertical resolution".
Not only it is an odd aspect ratio, many people prefer some vertical real estate for various reasons. This monitor is relatively good with a proper tiling window manager however.
I currently use two widescreen monitors (because finding 5:4 monitors at decent resolutions is impossible after my GDM-FW900 died) one in portrait and one in landscape for general use (landscape) and dedicated reading of lengthy pages (portrait) to mitigate the unfortunate shift in aspect ratios, but what else can you do?
why not the 34UM95!?
kaleidoscope
Two drops for that already and enough requests for a third. It's probably going to happen again: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/lg-34um94-ultrawide-monitor
Where's the curved 34" screen? :)
