LG has revealed its new 34WP550-B, an ultrawide 2560x1080 IPS monitor that appears to be ideal for casual gaming and work-from-home situations, giving most users plenty of screen real-estate for spreadsheet management and other productivity applications. 

With an IPS panel, FreeSync support and a 75Hz refresh rate, this monitor is also great for casual gaming, though the screen's 5ms response time will place the 34WP550-B below gaming-grade IPS displays. Even so, the 34WP550-B would be a great screen for both work and play. 

LG's 34WP550-B has an expected price tag of $299, which isn't a bad deal given this screen's ability to replace a 2-screen setup for many office users. The screen's sheer size also makes it ideal for content consumption, be it watching wide-screen movies at their full aspect ratio, or ultrawide compatible games outside of working hours. This screen's non-glare panel should also be considered as a useful feature for workers. 

With a refresh rate of above 60 Hz, this monitor will feel a lot smoother to use than standard 60 Hz office screens, with FreeSync sweetening the deal for casual gamers. The only real downside of this screen productivity-wise is its resolution, as a 2560x1080 resolution would not be ideal for video editors or photographers. That said, this resolution is plenty for casual office users. 
 
Input-wise, the 34WP550-B supports two HDMI display inputs, lacking support for other display output types.

I like how in all product pictures that they are using to advertise the product with, all of the participants in the meetings webcams, all look like they are CEO executives and in all fancy rooms etc.

Like who is like that in reality though? I bet no one looks like that in their own home environments lol.Quote

Having seen an ultrawide 2560x1080P panel in person, No one should touch them, Either go for the full 3440x1440 or get a 16:9 1440P panel.Quote
