Introduced in early April 2020, the 34-inch LG UltraGear 34GN850-B curved gaming monitor is G-Sync Compatible and sports a resolution of no less than 3,440 x 1,440 pixels, a 144 Hz refresh rate, as well as a minimum response time of 1 ms. Thanks to a generous 38% discount, it can currently be acquired for $499 instead of $799.99.

While it is clearly inferior to the more expensive offerings that came out since its 2020 launch, the 34-inch LG UltraGear 34GN850-B remains an interesting choice for those who can live with a curved Nano IPS panel instead of OLED and a refresh rate limited to 144 Hz. With an all-time high price of $999.99, recorded at the end of 2020, this monitor is now listed by Amazon for $799.99, but the ongoing 38% discount pushes it all the way to $499. Based on Camelcamelcamel's price tracking, the average price of the 34GN850-B is now $684.82, so being able to grab it for less than $500 is certainly a good deal.

With a virtually borderless design, the LG UltraGear 34GN850-B has a large stand (even too large, according to some reviews) that sports adjustable height and tilt. After overclocking, the refresh rate can hit 160 Hz. However, the tradeoff is that, when going from 144 Hz to 160 Hz, the color depth drops from 10 bits to 8 bits, thus pushing down the default 98% DCI-P3 color gamut value. The image delivered is compatible with the VESA DisplayHDR 400 standard, while gamers also get to enjoy a G-Sync Compatible visual experience alongside AMD FreeSync Premium, Dynamic Action Sync, Black Stabilizer, and Crosshair.

Powered by an external power brick of a moderate size, the LG UltraGear 34GN850-B only comes in black. In addition to DP and HDMI, it also features USB 3.0 upstream and downstream connectivity. The standard retail package includes a USB 3.0 upstream cable as well as HDMI and DP cables.

Last but not least, those who are looking for an Amazon alternative can grab this monitor directly from LG US. In this case, a $250 discount to the $749.99 list price is involved, so the final price is $499.99.
