The LG 34GP83A-B is a great ultrawide gaming monitor. It has a large, curved screen that provides amazing immersion when gaming and tons of real estate for work. It has fast response time, low input lag, and you can overclock its 144Hz refresh rate up to 160Hz to deliver smoother and more responsive gameplay. Viewing angles are decent, fine for sharing content casually or co-op gaming; however, there's some loss of image accuracy when viewing from the side, so it might not be ideal if you need to share work that requires precision. Unfortunately, while it gets bright enough to overcome glare easily, it isn't enough to deliver a true HDR experience. Also, it has a low contrast ratio that makes blacks appear gray in the dark. On the upside, content creators should be happy to hear that it has full sRGB and excellent Adobe RGB coverage, superb gradient handling, and no color bleed.

Our Verdict

7.8 Mixed Usage

The LG 34GP83A-B is a good monitor for most uses. It has low input lag, exceptional response time, and a high refresh rate, making it great for gaming. Its large, high-resolution screen delivers an immersive viewing experience for media consumption and provides plenty of space for work. While it supports HDR, it can't deliver a satisfying HDR experience because it has a low contrast ratio, no local dimming, and doesn't get bright enough to make highlights pop.

Pros
  • Good visibility in bright settings.
  • Large screen and high resolution.
  • Good text clarity.
Cons
  • Height and tilt adjustments only.
7.6 Office

The LG 34GP83A-B is good for office use. It has a large screen that provides plenty of space for multitasking and a high resolution to render text clearly. There's some loss of image accuracy when viewing from the side; however, it should be fine for sharing documents or spreadsheets that don't require perfect image accuracy. Its reflection handling is just okay, but it gets bright enough to overcome glare. Unfortunately, the stand only allows for tilt and height adjustments.

Pros
  • Good visibility in bright settings.
  • Large screen and high resolution.
  • Good text clarity.
Cons
  • Height and tilt adjustments only.
8.5 Gaming

The LG 34GP83A-B is a great gaming monitor. It has incredibly low input lag and exceptional response time, and its 144Hz refresh rate can be overclocked up to 160Hz for even more responsiveness. It's compatible with FreeSync and G-SYNC to deliver a nearly tear-free gaming experience. Its large, high-resolution screen feels immersive, which is great for playing atmospheric games like RPGs. Unfortunately, it's not the most ideal for gaming in the dark because it has a low contrast ratio that makes blacks appear gray.

Pros
  • High refresh rate and exceptional response time.
  • Large screen and high resolution.
  • Low input lag.
  • VRR support.
Cons
  • Height and tilt adjustments only.
7.4 Media Consumption

The LG 34GP83A-B is good for media consumption. It has a large, high-resolution screen that delivers an immersive viewing experience. Viewing angles are decent, although there's still some loss of image accuracy when viewing off-center. It's well-suited for bright rooms because it overcomes glare easily, but it isn't ideal for dark rooms due to its low contrast ratio. Sadly, the stand only allows for height and tilt adjustments.

Pros
  • Good visibility in bright settings.
  • Large screen and high resolution.
  • Low input lag.
Cons
  • Height and tilt adjustments only.
7.9 Media Creation

The LG 34GP83A-B is good for content creation. Its ultrawide format lets you open multiple windows side-by-side and makes it easier to lay out your timeline when editing videos. It has full sRGB and excellent Adobe RGB coverage, superb gradient handling, and no color bleed. The viewing angles are only decent, so it's not the best for sharing work that requires the highest accuracy. Its reflection handling is just okay, but it gets bright enough to fight glare.

Pros
  • Good visibility in bright settings.
  • Large screen and high resolution.
  • Full sRGB and excellent Adobe RGB coverage.
  • Superb gradient handling.
Cons
  • Height and tilt adjustments only.
6.6 HDR

The LG 34GP83A-B is okay for HDR. It displays the wide range of colors needed for HDR, but other than that, the performance is limited. It has a low contrast that makes blacks look gray in the dark, and it doesn't have a local dimming feature to further improve it. It also doesn't get bright enough to make highlights truly stand out.

Pros
  • Large screen and high resolution.
  • Superb gradient handling.
Cons
  • Not ideal for dark rooms due to low contrast.
  • Height and tilt adjustments only.
  • Not bright enough for a true HDR experience.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the LG 34GP83A-B 34 inch ultrawide gaming monitor, and there are no other variants. There are many monitors in LG's UltraGear lineup with various configurations, some of which you can see in the table below.

Model Size Panel Type Resolution Refresh Rate
34GP83A-B 34" IPS 3440 x 1440 160Hz
34GN850-B 34" IPS 3440 x 1440 160Hz
27GN750-B 27" IPS 1920 x 1080 240Hz
27GN850-B 27" IPS 2560 x 1440 144Hz
27GN950-B 27" IPS 3840 x 2160 144Hz

If someone comes across a different type of panel or their 34GP83A doesn't correspond to our review, let us know and we'll update the review. Note that some tests, like gray uniformity, may vary between individual units.

Our unit was manufactured in November 2020; you can see the label here.

Compared To Other Monitors

The LG 34GP83A-B is a great ultrawide gaming monitor that delivers a smooth and responsive gaming experience. It's almost identical to the LG 34GN850-B, but its response time at max refresh rate is just a tad slower, and it doesn't get as bright in HDR.

For more options, check out our recommendations for the best gaming monitors, the best ultrawide gaming monitors, and the best 34-49 inch monitors.

LG 34GN850-B

The LG 34GP83A-B and the LG 34GN850-B are almost identical in design, features, and performance. The main differences are that the 34GN850-B has slightly better response time at max refresh rate, and it gets a bit brighter in HDR, although not by much.

Dell S3422DWG

The LG 34GP83A-B and the Dell S3422DWG use different panel technologies, each with strengths and weaknesses. The LG's IPS panel delivers much better viewing angles, and it has a faster response time. The VA panel on the Dell delivers much better black uniformity and better contrast. The Dell also has better reflection handling and an optional backlight strobing feature.

Gigabyte M34WQ

The Gigabyte M34WQ is better than the LG 34GP83A-B. The Gigabyte has better ergonomics, much better reflection handling, and an optional backlight strobing feature. The Gigabyte is better for productivity as it has a few extra office features built-in, including a keyboard video and mouse switch (KVM), which allows you to switch between two sources with one set of input devices. On the other hand, the LG is better for some gamers as it has a faster response time.

Dell Alienware AW3420DW

The LG 34GP83A-B is better than the Dell Alienware AW3420DW for most uses. It has a higher 160Hz refresh rate compared to the Dell's 120Hz, and its response time is significantly better. Also, its higher peak brightness makes it more ideal for well-lit rooms, and it supports HDR. The Dell has better ergonomics because it allows for swivel adjustment, and it has more USB ports. In terms of VRR support, the LG is compatible with FreeSync and G-SYNC, while the Dell has native G-SYNC support and FreeSync compatibility.

LG 34GP950G-B

The LG 34GP83A-B and the LG 34GP950G-B are pretty similar overall. The 34GP950G has slightly better reflection handling, and the unit we bought has better gray uniformity, but this can vary between units. The 34GP950G has a local dimming feature, but it's pretty bad, so this doesn't add much over the 34GP83A-B. Finally, there's a slight difference in the supported gaming technologies. The 34GP950G is a native G-SYNC monitor, whereas the 34GP83A-B is just G-SYNC compatible, so if you have an NVIDIA graphics card and want to get the most out of it, the 34GP950G might be the better choice.

Gigabyte M27Q

The LG 34GP83A-B and the Gigabyte M27Q are both great monitors that deliver similar gaming performances. The main difference is that the LG is an ultrawide with a 21:9 aspect ratio, while the Gigabyte has a standard 16:9 format. The Gigabyte has wider viewing angles, gets brighter, and offers more features, like USB-C input and a built-in KVM.

Acer Nitro XV340CK Pbmiipphzx

The LG 34GP83A-B and the Acer Nitro XV340CK Pbmiipphzx are both 34 inch ultrawide monitors with a 1440p resolution. The LG is better for gaming because it has faster response times and a higher refresh rate. The Acer scores higher because it has a Black Frame Insertion feature; however, it isn't usable while VRR is active. If you're in a well-lit room where glare is an issue, the Acer has better reflection handling, but the LG gets brighter. The Acer has significantly better ergonomics because it allows for a full 360-degree swivel.

Dell S2721DGF

Although the Dell S2721DGF and the LG 34GP83A-B have different screen sizes and aspect ratios, they're quite similar in gaming performance. Both monitors have exceptional response times, and the Dell's 165Hz refresh rate is only marginally higher than the LG's 160Hz. The Dell has better ergonomics and wider viewing angles, making it a better choice for sharing content or playing co-op games. On the other hand, the LG's 21:9 aspect ratio feels more immersive and provides more space for multitasking.

Dell Alienware AW3821DW

The LG 34GP83A-B and the Dell Alienware AW3821DW are very similar overall. The LG has slightly better gaming performance because it has a higher refresh rate and better response times. However, the Dell delivers a better HDR experience due to its wider color gamut and higher peak brightness. The biggest difference between them is that the LG is compatible with FreeSync and G-SYNC, while the Dell is a native G-SYNC monitor with FreeSync compatibility. The Dell has a bigger screen and a higher resolution, but it comes out to roughly the same pixel density as the LG.

The LG 34GP83A-B's build quality is decent, almost identical to the LG 34GN850-B. Although it's all plastic, it feels sturdy, and the stand supports the screen well. It doesn't feel particularly premium, but there are no obvious gaps in the construction. That said, the cable management hook feels pretty flimsy.

The LG 34GP83A-B has disappointing ergonomics. It only allows for height and tilt adjustments.

Like most LG UltraGear monitors, the back is plain except for the red ring and logo. There's a quick-release feature to remove the stand for VESA-mounting, and the small hook in the middle of the stand is for cable management.

The HDR peak brightness is okay, close enough to meet the 400 cd/m² requirement for its DisplayHDR 400 certification. It can bring out some highlights in games, especially if you game in a dark environment, but it's not enough for a true cinematic HDR experience.

We measured the HDR peak brightness in the 'Gamer 2' Picture Mode with HDR enabled and Brightness set to max.

The LG 34GP83A-B has excellent accuracy before calibration. It has an sRGB mode that locks the colors to the sRGB color space so that they don't look oversaturated, and the white balance is also great. The color temperature is close to the 6500K target, and gamma follows the target well for the most part, but most scenes are too bright. Also, using the sRGB mode locks out a few picture settings, including the Response Time, Black Stabilizer, and Color Temp, so if you want more customizable settings, you'll need to use a picture mode that's less accurate.

The LG 34GP83A-B's response time at 60Hz is great. There's still little to no blur trail. The best overdrive setting at 60Hz is 'Normal' because 'Off' is slower, and there's too much overshoot with the 'Fast' and 'Faster' options. It's great because you don't need to change the overdrive setting if the frame rate of your game drops.

This monitor works well with the Xbox Series X. It downscales a 4k image, which results in a sharper image than a native 1440p signal. 1440p @ 60Hz only works if you enable the HDMI override setting, which disables VRR. The Xbox doesn't support ultrawide gaming, so you'll see black bars on the sides.

macOS Compatibility

The LG 34GP83A-B works well with recent M1 MacBooks. The VRR only works up to 144Hz, so if you want to use the overclockable 160Hz, you need to use a fixed refresh rate instead. There aren't any noticeable issues with VRR in the desktop and games, except there's a thin gray bar at the top of the screen in games. Windows return to their original position when you wake the laptop up from sleep or open the lid, which is great.
