lg curved monitorFor the longest time ever, our monitors have typically been flat, unless you want to talk about the good old days of CRT monitors where the front part of the display curved out a little. Well putting that aside, it seems that OEMs like Samsung and LG are looking to introduced curved monitors to the market which will be joining both companies’ curved TVs.


LG had unveiled such a monitor during IFA 2014 and the good news is that if you liked what you saw and wouldn’t mind getting your hands on it, you will be pleased to learn that LG will be launching their Curved UltraWide Monitor (34UC97) stateside where it will be priced at a not-so-affordable $1,300.

However the monitor does measure a pretty huge 34-inches with an aspect ratio of 21:9. According to LG, this monitor will serve as a desktop replacement for users who like having a dual screen setup given its wide nature. It will feature an LED backlight, in-plane switching technology, and what LG is calling “true color finder” regarding its color calibration for the display.

For those who are used to working with dual displays, LG has also included a 4-Screen Split feature that allows users to divide up the display’s real estate into four sections, choosing from eight different screen ratios. The display will be compatible with both PCs and Macs and will also support Thunderbolt 2 connectivity alongside two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort.
