    I wonder why they didn't make a curved version. I owned a flat 34" ultrawide monitor and had to return it, I was not confortable at all with my field view. This was fixed once I replaced it with a curved monitor (which I was not fan of before), however after a while I realized resolution 3440×1440 was not good enough for me, missed my Omen X laptop sharpness. I understand the main focus for this product is design, content creation…and in that sense flat might make more sense than curved, not for me though.
    Hopefully at some point we will have an 4k ultrawide curved monitor, in the meantime I'll settle on a 32" 4k monitor.

    I think you're using the word 'resolution' wrong. I think resolution refers to picture quality resulting from pixel density over a given physical area. From a standard aspect ration 4k you are getting more 'real estate' with this ultra-wide, whilst maintaining the same resolution.

    so I bought the 34" 5k2k to go with my new 2018 Mac mini. when I have it in full 5k resolution, I can't read the text (as it is too small). the only way to make the text larger is to down grade the resolution. is there a work around for this? I mean, what's the point of having a 5k display if I have to cut the resolution in half to be able to read what I'm doing?

    Came to see review of monitor. Got usless mac mini thunderbolt port numbers and apple products that i do not use,, walk through resolution for dummies. And not much else. What a waste of time.

    Hi, I have a question for you, I have a 2018 Macbook 13 Pro with a egpu using a rx580. The graphic card has only 2 hdmi output and 2 display ports. Can I use this monitor with the full resolution?

    I'm currently using a 34 inch 3440×1440. With the 5K LG, I would lose a lot real estate at the default 2560×1080. For the same real estate and retina, would the resolution need to be 6880×2880, then scaled to 3440×1440?

    ok lets say i connect my iMac late 2015 over Thunderbolt 2 to DisplayPort as a second screen. And I also want to connect my gaming pc to that Monitor? Where should I plug it in then ? HDMI ?
