LG Readies Curved Monitors

After seeing a German listing for a selection of LG monitors, we questioned the model numbers with LG. Four units were covered in the German source: the 34UM95C, 34UC87C, 34UC97C and 29UC97C – we have reported on all of these before, but without the ‘C’ appended to the end.

Our immediate assumption was that the displays were new curved versions. However, LG told us that only two – the 34UC87C and 29UC97C – were new. The others are the same as the products launched last year, with a different model number.

LG said that the 34UC87C is a 34″ curved unit for vertical applications, such as banking and finance. It has 3440 x 1440 (21:9) resolution, 300 cd/m² of brightness and a 14ms response time. Viewing angles are 178°. The monitor covers 99% of sRGB and can display 10-bit colour.

DisplayPort, HDMI (x2) and USB 3.0 (x2) connections are featured. The monitor is height-adjustable (140mm), can tilt (-5° – 15°) and is flicker-free. It is available now for €755.

We have been unable to source much information about the 29UC97C so far. We know that it will be a new curved 29″ monitor, released in July or August, with a 21:9 aspect ratio. It will cost €550.
