21:9 monitors have done a good job of filling a couple niche positions in the marketplace. For someone that wants a single display to watch movies and use with a PC, the aspect ratio can work well. With many games, the wider field-of-view enhances the game with more information on screen at once and a more immersive experience. Where they have fallen short is with their vertical resolution of 1080 pixels. Running two applications side-by-side makes everything feel cramped. For regular office work a 27” display for the same price has provided a better user experience, but what happens when we shift to a 1440 display? That's what we aim to find out as we review LG's new 34" display.
