LG 34in Ultrawide Upgrade

I wasn’t planning on upgrading anytime soon from my previous 27in 4k display as it offered plenty of screen space, but after talking with a couple of friends about their new 49 Ultrawide setups I thought that I should look into this to see what I was missing.

I tooled around with the idea of getting the same 49in display that they did but just couldn’t justify the cost nor the size as it would likely take up the entirety of my desk. When I came across this LG it not only fit the budget but also the size requirements and even had a black base to match the other items on my desk better than the previous LG with a silver stand.

Now after using it for a couple of months, I don’t think I could ever go back to a smaller display, let alone one that is not curved. I wish that I could give some feedback on the refresh rates for gaming, but I never game on this machine but rather use it for the web, programming as well as Slack.
