It's 1080... plus at this size you probably want to get a curved screen.

Thinking of getting this instead of a dual monitor set up. Mainly use it for email and Excel type stuff. My 27” 1080 monitor is a bit too small for me

It's only gonna be wider. The height and pixel size are basically the same. If you need more content on screen, you should worry more about resolution, not size (within reason).

I wanna add, a 1440p monitor will have the same amount of horizontal pixels but much more vertical. One can certainly find 1440p screens in this price bracket.

I have a 34” ultrawide and it's 3440x1440. There's obviously more horizontal pixels if there's more vertical pixel if you stay with the same form factor.

I meant a standard 16:9 1440p vs 21:9 1080p.

I use a 27" 1080p WFH daily and don't see pixels unless I'm 6" from the screen. The extra width is exactly what I need to make 2 windows usable side by side without having to reduce zoom.

I think this open box is a better deal (height adjustment, built in speaker) but now OOS. Was about to pull the trigger last night but then there was an eco fee tacked on and I decided to hold off. https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/lg ... x/15012625

The 29" may also be a better deal https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/lg ... k/13618806

Yeah, jep4444 I think you were thinking about something else. 34" ultrawide is either 2560x1080 (this one) or 3440x1440. You have 34% more pixels in both horizontal and vertical axis. And it's enough to make a pretty big difference, too.

This monitor is exactly the same as a 27" 1080p monitor but wider.

This diagram gives an idea of what you are getting. You are getting a monitor that's exactly the same height as a 27" and more pixels across, but the same density of information (pixels are exactly the same size)

RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

I was referring to 16:9 1440p, should have been clear by my comment about being able to find one in this price bracket....

This is a decent WFH monitor.

For such users, you wouldn't want a curved display (VA panel). IPS is good.

82 PPI is a little low compared to the standard 92 PPI, but this is a $300 monitor.

Any reason someone wouldn't want curved for work? I use a curved 32 for work and couldn't see myself going back (context: upgraded from 2x 22inch)

I think at $300 good monitor. According to lg website. KEY FEATURES

34” 21:9 WFHD (2560 x 1080) IPS Display sRGB 99% Color Gamut Radeon FreeSync™ Technology
3-Side Virtually Borderless Design

Not sure where the 1080P comes from. That would be horrible for 34IN.

Basically 1080 over a larger surface
