It’s difficult not to be overwhelmed by the sights and sounds of CES; the bright lights, loud music and sweating bodies. It can make any grown man (or woman) want to keel over, so it’s especially difficult to really wow the crowd—creating something that stands out is more challenging than asking iOS and Android fans to get along. But we managed to find that something special in the midst of CES madness, falling in love with LG’s 34-inch UltraWide QHD monitor.
So how does it stack up?
From a technical standpoint, the 34UM95 sports a 21:9 UltraWide QHD screen, sporting a resolution of 3440×1440. Most monitors today have maxed out on Full HD, so the bump up in resolution is hugely welcome, especially when you spend your days staring at pictures and video (as one tends to do when writing for a technology website). The pixel area is about 1.8 times larger than other regular UltraWide Full HD screens, and about 2.4 times larger than a regular 16:9 Full HD monitor.
That screen, which has minimal bezel, is encased in a beautiful aluminum shell, and the stand (which is detachable) is quite nice, too. LG says the cinema screen design is wide enough to show a whopping 47 columns and 63 rows in Microsoft Excel, which should certainly excite you productivity nuts. We, however, simply used it for video editing purposes, which you can learn more about here. Some of the other features include two four-screen split, Thunderbolt ports, an HDMI port, DisplayPort, color management features and support for Apple’s latest beast, the Mac Pro.
We’ve been using the 34UM95 for the past few weeks, and really can’t imagine living without it. The aspect ratio is perfect for getting work done, and the high resolution screen looks incredible; the monitor itself is very well designed, too, topping off a very premium experience.

Light up dark spots with the best under-cabinet lighting
House fixtures like cabinets are bound to obstruct overhead lights and this can lead to poorly lit countertops and work areas. All you have to do is install under-cabinet lighting to illuminate such dark spots.
