REVIEW : LG 34GL750 Monitor

The LG 34GL750-B is a gaming monitor that hits a lot of the right notes and looks great while doing it. It’s 34-inch diagonal is huge, and it tops its gaming credentials with a gentle curve. And, that’s not the only attractive attribute that makes it a great buy. It supports AMD FreeSync and it runs on an IPS panel. You’ll also love the 1 millisecond response time and 144GHz, all of which make for a great gaming monitor.

The 34GL750-B even looks great from behind, thanks to the beautiful ergonomic stand. For the price, this is a serious investment, one that would benefit greatly from built-in speakers and a USB-C port.

DESIGN

Expansive screens like this always look disarming at first. Its 3800mm radius spreads into a gentle arc, meaning you don’t suffer from image distortion, instead, the sides tilt the screen towards the user. It’s splendid, not distracting.

The 21:9 aspect ratio is more useful than what you’d get on taller 4K screens; the additional width is ideal for films, and it provides extra screen real estate for working. As described, it’s great for gaming: racing titles tend to have more immersion as scenery flashes past, and there’s more room to manoeuvre in FPS titles, and RTS and MOBA games get a boost.

The panel is secured inside a good-looking plastic enclosure, that’s accented with red along the back of the screen and part of the stand. Build quality is also nice, and the screen feels firm on a desk despite its width. You don’t find many downsides on LG’s design, though. The bezels around the panel are pretty thick, and that’s a tiny aesthetic quibble.

FEATURES

The LG’s pixel density of 82ppi isn’t very high it’s likely to see pixels when you’re up-close, and 3,440 x 1,440 screens tend to have a clearer density measurement of 110ppi. 

The upside, however, is that it’s more comfortable to play most games on this screen – the more inferior pixel count indicates that you don’t need a blazing GPU to get games running smoothly, and it also gives you ample headroom to take benefit of the LG’s 144Hz refresh rate.

REVIEW : LG 34GL750 Monitor

By including AMD’s FreeSync technology this monitor easily runs a low figure of 50hz and a high of 144Hz. 

You can connect your PC to the monitor via an upstream DisplayPort or either of the two HDMI ports, and audio comes via a headphone jack but doesn’t include built-in speakers.

PERFORMANCE

The LG 34GL750-B is a strong performer on both gaming and productivity tasks. Its brightness level of 256cd/m2 is within LG’s quoted figure, and it’s bolstered by a 0.19cd/m2 – which means the LG delivers a 1,363:1 contrast ratio. The higher the contrast ratio, the better. It means your colours will be vibrant, and it helps this monitor deliver a wide range of different shades – even closely-matched tones will be easier to tell apart. And that remarkable black level easily makes dark shades stand out – most gaming monitors aren’t this good when it comes to handling those inkier tones. Its average response time of 10.2ms is excellent, anything under 20ms is fine for gaming.

REVIEW : LG 34GL750 Monitor

Were it not for the 21:9 aspect ratio, which stretches content across a wide but narrow canvas, you’d otherwise mistaken the monitor for a TV. 

What makes the LG 34GL750-B a gaming display is its 1-millisecond response time and 144Hz. It also features AMD’s FreeSync technology which protects the screen from tearing.

For the most part, though, this monitor is excellent – with a sensible resolution and screen size paired with the solid build quality and robust features.
