The LG 34WQ75C-B is a curved professional ultrawide monitor for optimum comfort while viewing. It is QHD ultrawide monitor for reading, coding, gaming, and media creation.
I highly believe that curved monitors are the future, mainly because the large screens seem more comfortable and easy for prolonged hours due to the curvature that provide a centre-focused viewing experience.
This ultrawide monitor is a step above and is an ideal choice for professionals due to its curvature and high resolution screen.
It offers all the features that it lower model misses out on. You get a pair of built-in speakers with USB Type-C port, AMD FreeSync, and a height adjustable stand.
I believe it is a perfect ultrawide monitor for your MacBook because the power delivery is also high at 90W.
For around $450, you are getting an excellent display for your professional needs, and it seems like a complete package.

- HDR 10
- USB Type-C, RJ45

The LG 34WQ60C-B belongs to the premium ultrawide series of monitors from LG. It is a costly monitor and I recommend this display to professionals only.
Professions like coding, media creation, and multi-tasking are highly suitable for this monitor, but gamers and binge-watchers should get a monitor with high refresh rate display.
This is not for gaming mainly because lacks high refresh rate display like on the LG 34WQ650-W (read review) which has 100Hz refresh rate.
The LG 34WQ75C-B houses an IPS panel with ultrawide aspect ratio, making it an excellent monitor for office and coding use.
This ultrawide monitor has 60Hz refresh rate, which is not enough to satisfy gamers.
It has built-in speakers, and it also gets HDR 10, so it is a good choice for entertainment.
Design & Ergonomics
- Monitor Type – Curved Ultrawide
- Width – 81.7cm
- Height – 46 cm
The LG 34WQ75C-B has an all-black finish on the monitor.
I believe, the silver-black combination suits well with the LG monitors.
It is a curved ultrawide monitor and that gives a superb appearance on the desk.
The chassis is very wide, so make sure you have enough space on the desk to house this monitor.
- Depth – 26 cm
- VESA Mount – 100x100mm
- Ports Position – Down-Facing
The LG 34WQ75C-B has a plain design from the back.
It comes finished in black color on the back with down-facing connectivity ports.
It is quite deep, so make sure you have enough space from the wall.
Also, it is wall-mountable with 100x100mm VESA mounting.
There is a joystick for controlling OSD menu on the right-back of the monitor.
- Thinness – N/A
The bezels of LG 34WQW75C-B are very thin, but only from the three sides.
The bottom one is noticeably thick and that is common with most monitors.
This form-factor is not the most suitable for dual setups, because you are getting the screen space of dual monitors on a single one.
- Weight – 18.96 lbs
The build quality is good, it is plastic but of a very good quality.
However, the stand feels solid and it seems to be of metal.
The weight is 18.96 lbs, which is quite heavy, so make sure to purchase a sturdy monitor arm if you are buying one.
- Removable Stand – Yes
- Cable Management – Yes
The stand on the LG 34WQ60C-B is basic, but it offers tilt and height functions.
The stability is superb on the desk despite holding a large display.
The stand has LG’s ArcLine design, and it takes very less amount of space on the desk.
- Tilt – 20° Backward
- Swivel – N/A
- Height – 110 mm
- Pivot – N/A
The LG 34WQ75C-B has acceptable ergonomics because it offers tilt and height functions.
Unfortunately, there is no swivel function on this one.
Pivot is not possible with ultrawide, but you can check out our vertical monitors for coding.
Display & Performance

- Panel Size – 34-inch
- Panel Curve – 1500R
- Aspect Ratio – 21:9
- Panel Depth – 10 bits (8 bits+FRC)
The LG 34WQ75C-B features an IPS panel with 34-inch screen size.
It feels super comfortable and offers excellent visibility for coding and video editing purposes.
It comes with 21:9 aspect ratio with panel depth of 10 bits so it can display 16.7 million colors which makes it a color-rich panel.
Its wide aspect ratio with 1500R curved design provides immersive office and gaming experience.
- Resolution – 3440x1440p
- PPI – 110 PPI
The LG 34WQ75C-B monitor has QHD screen resolution with 3440×1440 pixels resolution.
It results in average 110 PPI on the 34-inch screen size.
The screen clarity and visibility makes it an excellent display for reading.
Also, the large screen makes it an ideal monitor for putting at a distance.
- Peak Brightness – 300-nits
The LG 34WQ75C-B has acceptable 300-nits peak brightness and that is ideal for bright rooms.
There is an anti-glare coating on the panel which should eliminate most glares and reflections.
However, do not expect it to perform excellent while viewing HDR content.
- Contrast Ratio – 1000:1
This monitor’s contrast ratio is 1000:1, which is standard for IPS monitors.
The blacks appear grayish in the dark, but it might not bother most.
If you do color-accurate tasks in the dark, you will not be able to see blacks accurately.
- Viewing Angles – 178°
LG claims 178-degrees vertical viewing angles which is excellent.
The colors do not fade, hence it is a perfect monitor to mount at a height or on the wall.
The horizontal viewing angles are also wide.
Hence, it is a perfect monitor for sharing your work with clients or colleague sitting on the side.
- sRGB – 99%
- NTSC – 72%
The color coverage is good with the 99% sRGB on this monitor.
It is perfect for viewing SDR content, and it produces vibrant colors bringing the viewing experience true-to-life.
- Response Time – 1 ms MBR
The LG 34WQ75C-B has 1 ms minimum response time which should handle everyday motion-intensive tasks and gaming.
It is only possible when you select the MBR (Motion Blur Reduction) mode from the OSD menu.
- Refresh Rate – 60Hz
It has max 60Hz refresh rate only, which feels quite boring.
If gaming on an ultrawide is your top priority, check out this 200Hz monitor from Sceptre.
- Black Frame Insertion – Yes
The LG 34WQ75C-B has black frame insertion technology which LG calls Motion Blur Reduction.
- HDR – HDR 10
The LG 34WQ75C-B is HDR 10 certified and we think it offers below-par HDR performance.
Mainly because the peak brightness is low for HDR to shine, and there is no wide color gamut coverage.
Low Blue Light
This ultrawide monitor has built-in low blue light mode for reading.
It can be toggled via OSD menu.
If your eyes-strain, I highly recommend that you enable this feature.
Black Stabilizer boosts contrast ratio of dark scenes so that you can see the visuals with utmost clarity.
This monitor has LG’s screen split feature for tiling up all your applications side-by-side so that you can multitask upon them efficiently.
Crosshair feature displays a crosshair in the middle of the screen so that you can get ultimate accuracy while playing first person shooter gamers.

You get four USB downstream ports for connecting hard-drives.
There is also a USB Type-C port with DP Alt Mode and excellent 90W PD.
Ethernet RJ45 port is also available on this monitor.
That’s a Wrap!
We think LG 34WQ75C-B is a great ultrawide display equipped with all the modern features and latest technologies for coding and media creation use.
I feel it is a complete package for professionals who need a premium ultrawide monitor. It is not the best of all in the industry, there are better monitors available than this.
But, if you are looking for a balance between quality and price, the LG 34WQ75C-B seems like a great deal to me.
