Image Quality

LG 34WP60C-B performance
The LG 34WP60C-B boasts a VA 34-inch display delivering better color reproduction than TN displays and your more standard IPS solutions - both of which have longer response times and offer a lower image depth than their VA counterpart -, while its Quad HD resolution (3440 x 1440 pixels) offers images that are far sharper than the traditional Full HD gaming monitors.

Sure enough, your standard IPS display does offer better viewing angles, as you can quickly see in the image below. However, VA displays are often picked for gaming monitors thanks to their fast response times, deep blacks, and high image depths.

Furthermore, it features a color gamut of up to 99% of the sRGB standard, showing up to 1.07 billion colors so you can enjoy movies, series, and games with fantastic picture quality.

Its maximum brightness (up to 300 cd/m2) and contrast ratio (3000:1) are also well above the average numbers we see in monitors, making it a good option for video and image editing as well. 

And thanks to its wider ultrawide aspect ratio (21:9), you'll be able to accomplish your daily tasks (spreadsheet editing, web surfing, working on cloud-based software, coding, etc.) without opening and closing tabs all the time as you can easily multitask without having to close a single tab in the process as its customers can attest to.

Moving onto its gaming performance, the LG 34WP60C-B boasts a refresh rate of 160 Hz which is 2.6x higher compared to your run-of-the-mill 60 Hz monitors, while reducing the response time to a minimum of 1 ms (MBR) so you can get the most out of recent AAA demanding titles.

Moreover, it's AMD FreeSync Premium compatible, which means that you'll enjoy a lag-free gaming experience, avoiding screen tearing and stuttering, especially when playing shooters, racing, e-Sports, simulators, and other fast-paced games.


Moving onto its special features, the LG 34WP60C-B has an easy-to-use OSD joystick that you can manually control to adjust the standard settings through the LG OnScreen Control app or even from Windows in case you need to manage a group of LG monitors.

When it comes to gaming in the harshest battleground, the Black Stabilizer and Dynamic Action Sync technologies will be very helpful as they will improve your visibility in the darkest scenes while reducing delays on the most demanding titles.

There's also a Crosshair function for more competitive gaming and HDR 10 support so you'll be able to enjoy your favorite HDR content with better color accuracy and contrast, whether it be games or movies/series.

In terms of productivity, its Flicker Safe technology and Reader Mode will let you work on your day-to-day tasks without experiencing eye fatigue due to blue light emissions and avoiding reflections since it features an anti-glare coating

The latter isn't a massive deal for a monitor, being a more important feature for a laptop, but it's still good to know since you don't need to adjust your workstation depending on the sunlight. 

Design and Connectivity

Regarding its design, this model boasts a modern and solid black chassis whose matte finish and ArcLine stand make it look good not only at home but also in the workplace, while its back side sports a minimalist appearance moving away from the typical aggressive design of most gaming monitors.

Moreover, you'll be able to enjoy an immersive viewing experience when playing, streaming multimedia, and working, thanks to its 3-side borderless and curved design.

Unlike the ASUS VG248QG we reviewed a few days ago, this model is only tilt-adjustable, yet being a curved monitor, we don't really miss that much the swivel and pivot options. And if you prefer to place it on the wall, then you can use a 100 x 100 mm VESA mount instead.

Connectivity-wise, it features two HDMI 2.0 outputs, a single DisplayPort 1.4 port, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. It's not all that much, and we would've been happy to see two DisplayPorts, but at this point, we're just being picky to be honest. 

What Are People Saying?

What are customers saying about the LG 34WP60C-B? Overall, customers have had positive experiences with this monitor. They appreciate its performance and value for the price. Many customers have found it to be excellent for graphic design, music editing, and general office work. The large screen real estate and high refresh rate have been praised for enhancing productivity and providing a smooth scrolling experience.

Customers have also expressed satisfaction with the monitor's visual quality, including vibrant colors and immersive viewing due to its curved design. The on-screen display menu and joystick control have been noted as user-friendly features. Additionally, customers have mentioned that the monitor is lightweight, making it easy to mount or use with flex arms.

While there have been a few minor complaints, such as the display port reverting window sizes and the monitor cutting off the active application indicator bar, these issues do not significantly impact the overall positive feedback. Some customers have also mentioned that the monitor's height may be shorter than expected, which could affect its suitability for certain tasks requiring more screen height.

In summary, customers generally appreciate the LG 34WP60C-B for its affordability, performance, and visual quality. Its suitability for multitasking, ease of use, and stable stand design have been highlighted as positive aspects. While there are a few minor concerns, customers find that the monitor meets their needs and offers great value for the price.

Price and Similar Monitors

The LG 34WP60C-B is a compelling curved monitor which can be used for productivity-focused tasks and multimedia enjoyment thanks to its ultrawide aspect ratio, wide color gamut, and Quad HD resolution, while its fast response time, high refresh rate and AMD compatibility deliver a fantastic gaming experience even with the most demanding titles.

However, the above-mentioned ASUS VG248QG could be a great alternative in case you prefer a conventionally designed 24-inch gaming monitor - AKA: flat screen - with a higher refresh rate (up to 165 Hz), as well as a faster response time (0.5 ms), and NVIDIA G-Sync support. At a slightly more competitive price point

Verdict: Is the LG 34WP60C-B worth buying?

Ultimately, the LG 34WP60C-B reviewed today is a must-have solution for those hardcore users looking for an affordable gaming monitor with a curved-borderless design that allows gamers to immerse themselves in the battleground from day one and play the most popular Triple-A games with great picture quality, fast response times, and amazing contrast.

Also, it can be an ideal monitor for multitasking productivity since its screen is sharp and big enough to help you avoid eye fatigue that can happen when staring at a small screen all day long, while its connectivity options make connecting all of your home entertainment systems easier, including desktop computers, laptops, video consoles, and even gaming consoles.
