Ports! 21:9 Resolution! Curved Panel!

 

There is so much to love with the 34UC87C, that I don't know where to start. Of course though, we'll start with the packaging and move on from there.

Turned around, we have the back of the box.

Here we have the back of the monitor, where you can see the two mounting holes for the stand. Down the bottom, we have a power switch to the left, and all of the connectivity to the right.

Speaking of connectivity, from left to right we have: DC in, headphone in, two HDMI ports, DisplayPort, a USB 3.0 host and two USB 3.0 ports.

A closer look at the power button.

The joystick at the bottom of the 34UC87C can control everything within the menus, and acts as a power button, too.

The one big difference between the 34UC97 and the 34UC87C is the stand, which is height adjustable.

Here we have the screen mounted onto the stand, with four screws keeping it in place.

 

 

Our Setup

 

For our testing, we used an ASUS ROG G751 gaming notebook, which is my workstation machine. I had the LG 34UC87C plugged into it for around a month of everyday testing. I was able to game very comfortably at 3440x1440 with the included NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M GPU, providing 60FPS+ in Battlefield 4.

The ASUS ROG G751 gaming notebook is powered by an Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor, 24GB of RAM and the aforementioned GeForce GTX 980M with 4GB of VRAM. It's a very powerful laptop, with it being faster than most $2000 gaming PCs. The LG 34UC87C is the perfect monitor for it.
