Summary: I got this for my music recording studio. I also do film editing. The split screen function to view 'Mix and Edit' windows is nice. The 34" screen is nice. I did a LOT of research before this purchase, and decided it was my best choice after deciding not to get a 4k monitor.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, resolution

Summary: The display is beautiful, with a very tiny bezel (except for the bottom). I especially like the joystick control of the LG monitors. There is definitely some light bleed on the corners, but it is only really visible in a dark room, and I do not find it distracting.
Coming from a 4K Dell monitor, this LG is AWESOME!!!

Summary: This is, hands down, the BEST monitor I've ever owned. I went from a three 27" monitor rig to just this with and additional 27" as an accessory monitor (email, chat, etc) attached to a dual monitor rig. I do development and web design on this monitor, the color reproduction is fantastic.
Summary: This monitor has quite an impressive image quality. Colors are very accurate and the customization options are quite complete. The contrast is very good, but the black level could be better (an all-black screen is kind of gray-ish and some backlight bleed can be seen).
Summary: At full resolution text is super small. I'm only 33 and with my glasses I actually see at 20/15 (which is better than 20/20) and even still I had a hard time reading the text. This monitor is GORGEOUS. Quite possibly the best I've ever seen.
Pros: 1. Absolutely beautiful design 2. Resolution is extremely sharp, especially if coming of of 1080p. 3. IPS panel produces beautiful color straight out of the box. 4. Black levels are great. 5. Built in speakers are surprisingly decent. 6. Huge amount of available calibration options.
Cons: 1. This CANNOT be understated: LIGHT BLEED. Oh. My. Imaginary Deity. I read the reviews and thought that it couldn't be as bad as people say, but rest assured it is. Worse even. To be fair this is not noticable at all in Windows. However, start up a game with a dark scene and the bottom half of t...
Summary: This is a great monitor. I use the monitor to play Call of Duty Advance Warfare and having the additional screen size makes all the difference. Very clear and detailed. You will need a very good video card to take advantage of what this monitor can do.
Summary: This monitor is great! It easily replaces a dual display monitor setup. I can work with two screens on the same display where I used to do this across two monitors in the past, however I no longer have the break due to two monitors.
