LG is expanding its monitor portfolio with a new ultrawide curved monitor. The 34BP65C is a well-rounded monitor with a high refresh rate and large display, making it a suitable solution for gaming and work.
Packing a 34-inch curved (1800R) VA panel with a 3440x1440p resolution, the monitor features a 160Hz refresh rate and 5ms G2G response time. With a typical brightness of 300nits and a 3000:1 contrast ratio, the pre-calibrated 10-bit (8-bit + dither) panel can cover 99% of the sRGB colour gamut. Unfortunately, the monitor doesn't seem certified by VESA for HDR content, but the spec sheet still lists it as supporting HDR10 content.
As you may have expected, it supports Adaptive-Sync (AMD FreeSync Premium) to prevent tearing. Moreover, it also features flicker-free technology, a Low Blue Light (LBL) mode, a black colour enhancer and multiple colour modes. Lastly, it has a Motion Blur Reduction (MBR) mode and supports Dynamic Action Sync (DAS) to reduce input lag.
The 34BP65C packs 2x built-in 7W MaxxAudio speakers and features a DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The included stand is reasonably ergonomic, allowing users to tilt and adjust the height. Still, you can improve your options with a compatible VESA 100x100mm arm.
The LG 34BP65C is available for sale at the company's official US website for $520. Pricing and availability in the UK and Europe is still TBD.
