[Costco] LG 34 in. 34WL60TM UltraWide Monitor (2560 x 1080) - 299.99

Alright alright, before the people who say anything above 24" monitors suck at FHD downvote this...just consider this as a great price for a 34" ultrawide monitor to use as your secondary monitor. On top of that, the reviews (a lot which are quite recent) are all positive reviews. For 299.99 that comes with free shipping, you don't need to wait in line in costco (or for people in ontario, we're not even able to buy this in-store), this is a great way to finally get the huge *ss monitor you've always wanted lol...also, IPS panels are pretty good, and VESA mounting holes are pretty good too.

Side note: A review has said that it's important to buy a mini display to display port to fully support the native resolution, and another said it doesn't work well with mac OS (?) so anyone who is in the apple ecosystem, this isn't the monitor for you.

And for anyone who is into streaming...this is a great monitor to look at twitch chat with the monitor placed vertically

This was added sometime today, so currently there's 455 in stock as of posting this post.

Adaptive Sync Technology: AMD FreeSync
Aspect Ratio 21:9
Model: 34WL60TM
Number of HDMI Inputs: 1
Panel Type: IPS
Refresh Rate: 75 Hz
Resolution: 2560 x 1080
Response Time: 5 Milliseconds
Screen Size: 34 in.

Could potentially reduce this to 274.99 via costco-costco-ca-25-coupon-adding-auto- ... v-2458313/ if you're able to get the 25$ code too!

Great price for what you get.

Yes 1080p will "suck", but being $300 completely makes up for it. 34 inch 1080p at table distance is not much different than 60 inch at sofa distance, and plenty of people watch 1080p content on their TV still

This, is, no, 1080P. Nor, it, is, a TV.

Umm... "just consider this as a great price for a 34" ultrawide monitor to use as your secondary monitor"? I already find the 34" ultrawide monitor to be too big, is it even practical or is it geared towards specific users? I am currently using two Samsung 24" monitors side-by-side. One as my main screen and second one to display my surveillance cameras or when I want to drag a program/window over but never I had to stretch a spreadsheet across the screens.

More geared towards people who use two (possibly three) applications at the same time e.g. spreadsheets and word documents. You can place them side by side and see a lot more of the data compared to a standard 16:9 aspect ratio. It can also be handy in video editing for timeline scrubbing.

Perceived blurriness will be high for this monitor because it's a large screen size with a relatively low resolution. I generally wouldn't recommend ultrawide, especially as a main monitor, unless you go for 3440x1440.

This is a 82 dpi monitor. Pretty low.
Personally, I would not go below 100, and I’m aiming more for 110, or 220 (but I don’t think there is 220 in ultra wide).

Used 1080p ultra wide and found it great for gaming/media and general browsing. Def a step up from a 24" reg monitor.

you'd probably want a curved monitor at this size unless you sit pretty far back. personally i wouldn't go above 29" if you have to get a flat ultrawide.

This is the same a 27" @ 1080p. I owned this monitor for 2 years and really didn't have any problems with it. I just missed having the dual monitor setup for easy window management so I "upgraded" to dual monitors.
One of my complaints with the monitor was that it didn't do auto source switching.
