LG 34UM95-C 34 - Monitor Setup

DeadDeal 714 87 September 5, 2016 at 07:01 PM
So I bought two LG 34UM95-C 34 for $500 each. I am having a second thought... I don't really care much about the newer model being released because it's going to be priced at $1500~. However, I was thinking... if I should have gone the curve route just because the curvature on this LG is pretty darn curved vs the other brands Samsung and Dell...

Should I
1. Keep these two monitors
2. Buy 2 LG curve model ones
3. Keep 1 monitor & buy 1 curve
4. Keep 1 monitor & buy 2 4K (21:9 in the middle with two 4K monitors on both sides)

I have a 1070 card and only intend to use it for office work, entertainment, and light photo editing.

Thanks in advance! woot

I don't think I understand the question. It seems like you're worried that maybe you should have purchased the curved model because it is pretty darn curved. Is that right? If so, what do you mean?

Not sure how practical side by side 21:9 monitors are, they take up a ton of desk space. I'd prefer two 4k screens in general since you get a lot more vertical space.

Agreed. For me it was either (2) 27" or a single 34" ultrawide. The desk space was too much for me otherwise. I actually ended up with a 32" which actually has about 5% more screen area than the 34" ultrawide. I'm not a fan of curved monitors at this point.

Ya I really wanted a 34" UW when I first saw it but now I really want a 32" 4k but the prices are still way more than I want them. I'll live with a pair for 24" 1080ps for now.

Thanks all. I just saw this LG 27inch 4K deal for $400. For entertainment, photo editing, office work, and light gaming, and if I must have 2 to 3 monitors, would you consider picking up 3 of these LG 27 inch @ 4K? Or just 2 and a LG 34UM95? Or 2x LG 34UM95 and 1 LG 27 inch? Ughh so many options... Also, curious to know if 4k resolution be too uncomfortable on a 27inch display.

Personally at 27", I'd just go with 1440p, 4k starts to make more sense in the 30+" range but they're a lot more money. Keep in mind a 27" 1440p screen and a 34" UltraWide 1440p will be about the same height and pixel density.
