Very pleased with this purchase

Pros: -Best upgrade to your setup you can do. Looks unbelievable up from a 1080p 27" 60Hz monitor.
-Got it while it was a good price ($450)
-Incredibly immersive
-The curve is just enough to top off how immersive games already are with this monitor

Cons: -As it is a huge monitor, there is a decent chance it arrives banged up in shipping and faulty. My first one was destroyed and the box had a huge hole in it where it appeared to have had something ram it. It was more than likely the fault of UPS, so I RMA'd it and received a replacement in a week. It was fine and the return process was easy.
-Color is off by default, you should calibrate it after getting it
-Lacks HDR, but the size and refresh rate make up for it

Overall Review: -If you have an AMD gpu, USE FREESYNC. **It needs to be enabled in the "Game" settings section of the monitor's on-screen display, and then toggled in Radeon settings. It also must be put to 144Hz in "Advanced display settings" in Windows.**
-Make sure you have a system powerful enough to take advantage of the resolution and refresh rate with modern games; at least a GTX 1080, RTX 2070, or Vega 64

Don't waist your time or money on LG and this monitor.

Pros: -When it works, it is serviceable. After close to a year of ownership I am underwhelmed.

Cons: -Died within a year.
-Light bleed from the corners is almost unbearable during dark themed games or movies. I actually requested a new monitor to be cross shipped due to the issue, only to find the replacement was worse than the first. Had to send the replacement back instead. Should have returned both in hindsight.
- Text documents and Excel can be granular. The resolution doesn't do it a ton of favors. Should you invest in an UltraWide, go with something higher.

Overall Review: -LG is quite possibly the worst customer service organization I have ever dealt with. It took over a week to even get my warranty request processed and well over an hour on the phone (over a few calls). I had completed the full band of troubleshooting before the first request was even placed and there was never a request from them for additional checks for a delay.
- Shipping to the service center would take 2-3 days, then 7-10 days to repair, then 2-3 days back to me. Seeing as I am already 7 days back from them even processing it, looking at a minimum of 18 days it is down and out. I know it says gaming on it, but it also works great for dual screen Excel windows... a.k.a. work, which is 90% of its use. Not cool for timing.
-They will "try" to expedite my claim.
-This leaves out the entire process where I was told I would have to take it to a service center roughly an hour away that only aligned with my work schedule (8-5, nothing crazy) on Saturday mornings. The service center, who was quite nice, would need 4-5 day turnaround after they got the part, which could end up taking just as long as the shipping depending on how the Saturdays fell but with close to 4 hours of my windshield time.
-I know this is all complaining as I am furious and trying to make some sense, but the moral of the story is don't bother with this or any LG. The good sale price is not worth it in the long run.

These Reviews are Bogus

Pros: The Reviews I read for the 34" LG FreeSync montior are in fact reviews for a completely different monitor. Each review I see is for an LG G-Sync Monitor, a much more expensive item than what I am viewing. I have noticed this on numerous items. These reviews don't even belong to the item you are cotemplating purchasing!

Cons: Read above statement

Great so far

Pros: Working like a charm! Wide screen. This monitor should last for many years. I bought this one to replace my 3 that I had set up, but this replaces the curved experience that I wanted and the space. The 3 monitors I had were 23 inches each so this is less space overall, but perfect for movies, games etc.

Cons: The monitor does wobble a bit for slight movements to the desk which I am not a fan of, especially for rage moments in gaming. It comes with an extra piece which the manual doesn't explain what it's for, it could be something to keep the neck steady.

Great display

Pros: If you've always had smaller screens before (even an ultrawide 24" display), you'll probably be amazed by how big this display is when you get it. Been a month and a half since I've had it. Still love it.

Cons: Nothing in my opinion

Overall Review: I'd recomend it!

Perfect

Pros: Good looking, good spec, 144hz, ultrawide, 5ms, good for gaming

Cons: Not gsync, but 300$ less

Overall Review: Perfect budget ultrawide gaming monitor. Had returned a va ultrawide monitor because of ghosting. No problem so far with the lg ultrawide monitor. Paired with gtx 1070, run all new game at ultra 120-144 fps/hrtz. Best gaming experience so far!

Great gaming monitor but...

Pros: 1. 144hz buttery smoothness.
2. Easy UI.
3. 1080p resolution allows for less stress on GPU.
4. Subtle curve.
5. No distracting RGB lights (I like RGB's just not on everything).

Cons: 1. Backlight bleed is real and present on all 4 corners.
2. 1080p resolution not great for content creators.
3. 250nits max brightness.

Overall Review: Coming from a triple Samsung 28" 4k monitor set-up I have to admit I was initially sceptical. However after adjusting the color calibration following a terrific online forum, I was able to get the monitors to produce a vivid and rich picture. The immersive feeling while gaming on a 21:9 scale at 144hz with its subtle curve is a much better experience for me than gaming at 4k.

Hopefully this review will assist others on their decision of whether to make the jump to ultrawide. I would also like to note the monitor usually goes on sale for a little under 500 usd. I would also advise gamers to save 300 usd and purchase the Freesnyc model. I have it teamed up with a hybrid GTX1080 and have no issues hitting 144fps @1080p on high to ultra.
