LG 34WK95U-W Review
Technologies are rushing forward so fast that we don’t have time to not only buy but even make reviews of new products. Basic LCD panel technologies are reborn, now I will introduce you to the LG 34WK95U-W – 5K monitor with Thunderbolt 3 support.
The model received a Nano-IPS screen. According to LG, the technology “improved phosphor” for advanced color gamma is implemented here. Even on paper, the specifications look impressive: a 34-inch ultra-wide monitor with a resolution of 5120 × 2160 pixels, for a price of about 98,000 r. If you think about it, the question arises. Will LG be able to set a new image quality standard?
Design LG 34WK95U-W
Like the rest of the new line of monitors, LG 34WK95U-W is presented in a bright unusual style. The case of white durable plastic looks modern, although most of its competitors continue to produce monitors in silver color under metal or in strict black.

The panel received a surprisingly thin frame. Yes, competitors also produce screens with ultra-thin frames, but LG is ahead of them here. A thin U-shaped metal stand securely holds the monitor, at first glance, its thin profile made me worry about the stability of the display, but there is nothing to fear. The screen was completely unsteady and stood securely on the desktop, like the Dell U3415DW with a thicker stand.
Despite the functionality, the stand is not universal here, but there are adjustments for tilt and height. There is no hint of the ability to rotate the monitor, although a VESA mount is present.
Ports and connectors
There are a lot of options for connecting to the monitor, there are 2 HDMI ports, DisplayPort, USB-C, headphone jack, one USB-A connector, 2 USB-A outputs, and Thunderbolt 3 port. This allows you to use the LG 34WK95U-W as a docking station for most compatible laptops. The panel works from the 85-watt power supply.
Usually, ports are placed in the lower part of monitors for quick access to them. LG does it differently – all the main connectors are located on the rear panel and are grouped in a rectangular recess. I liked this option, but this arrangement becomes more complicated only when the display is mounted on the wall.
There is a lot of space here. The 34-inch display has a 21: 9 ratio, which is not surprising. You can optionally purchase a 49-inch monster with a 32: 9 aspect ratio, however, 34WK95U-W received a resolution of 5120 × 2160 – the highest I met among ultra-wide panels.
This number of pixels is not easy to improve the sharpness of the image, but also increases the usable space of the screen. You can have several applications open at the same time without any inconvenience.
