Pros and cons

According to our monitor expert
  • This monitor has High Dynamic Range (HDR), which ensures a broader color rendering and higher contrasts
  • FreeSync prevents image stutter during gaming if you have an AMD video card.
  • Works well with MacBook (12 inches) because of the USB-C connection.
  • De helderheid van 300cd/m2 is minder hoog dan de meeste HDR beeldschermen.

Description

The LG 38WK95C is a 38-inch ultrawide monitor with QHD+ resolution. This monitor supports HDR 10, which means it can display 1 billion colors. Combined with the high, 300cd/m2 brightness, it makes this monitor suitable for producing and playing graphic material and high-resolution photos and videos. On top of that, you'll enjoy a more intense experience, thanks to the curved screen. The monitor also has a USB-C port, to connect your laptop or computer. Your devices will be charged as well, because the USB-C port delivers 60 watts of power. The IPS panel ensures that images will be clearly visible from several angles. Note: For a 4k output, you need a modern laptop or PC with a fairly powerful video card. Make sure it has at least a DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, or Thunderbolt 2 connection.

"Serious wide screen"

Robert | 23 January 2020

  • Pros:
    Lots of screen space
  • Pros:
    Enough connections to external devices

Love the huge screen surface. NIcely edit 2 documents side by side. Making documentation on one part of the screen and typing code on the other side of the screen.

"Looks Big, but you get used extremely fast. Go for it."

Martin Marconcini Rodriguez | 19 August 2019

  • Pros:
    Lots of space
  • Pros:
    PiP is nice, even w/out the software
  • Pros:
    Looks good, works fine for games (if you're not a pro)
  • Con:
    Only AMD FreeSync
  • Con:
    Some games struggle or flat out don't support the resolution but they usually work fine in another resolution or similar.

Great display, I use it for work (and occasional gaming) with a Linux laptop (via HDMI) and a Macbook Pro (via USB-C). Works fine on both systems.
I hesitated for months before buying it, because I wasn't sure if it was going to be appropriate for the light gaming I do and well, using it with Linux and macOS, as things are usually "windows only", but barring the lack of the PiP software to share the keyboard/mouse/clipboard between connected systems, the display is fine. I have an NVIDIA 2070 RTX in my laptop and it drives this display with no problems whatsoever.

"The best 49' For Picture Quality"

Renc Saridogan | 16 November 2020

  • Pros:
    IPS
  • Pros:
    Auto Brightness
  • Pros:
    Thunderbolt 3 (Charges MacBook)
  • Pros:
    One Cable for Display + Charging

I first purchased the Samsung CR9 but as an LG user myself (CX for TV), I was extremely disappointed by the picture quality. I immediately replaced it with the LG 49W and voila, back to the quality and sharp images!

My productivity went up high! I highly recommend it during these days where we work from home!
