  • Two weeks ago I bought 27" LG 27GN950-B and I almost had a heart attack when I saw this video. Since you didn´t mention the resolution I had to google it and that´s when I was relieved. Because once you go 4K, there is no going back to QHD. Btw, best purchase I´ve made in years with that LG monitor.

  • I have the x34p version of this monitor which is 1 gen older than this. I got it as a amazon returns deal for 470 CAD. Little over a year ago. If anyone plans to get this monitor as a youtube watching monitor or watch movies on it while not gaming... skip this monitor right away the video quality is so bad on it. That i actually set up lenovo smart display under it. But it is very nice for gaming. If anyone is wondering the monitor has been very reliable. I dont have any problems with it. I like the minor improvements. Like the 2 side usb on the side. Plus type c power support. Im suprised they couldnt fix the headphone holder gimmick that james attaches to it. Every time you lift your headset off it. It falls off.

  • 7:19 well, 1900R means the curve has a radius of 1.9 Meter, right? So, if you sit 1.9 Meter away from the Monitor, then they're right. But that's quite a big viewing distance for a 34" ultrawide
