They would have more sales if they had stock in the first place lol
hey guys, havent been in the forum for months..tonite i was going to pull the trigger for 34gk950g since its $999 in the US[and dont have to pay tax, yah im kinda rubbing it in haha] than i read up on how the new updates on the F version might be a better option only to find out the F version is at this moment $200 more than the G version, wtf! i was hopin to save on the g-sync tax by buyin the F version...then someone made a reference to the new 38GL950g!!! [and all the other new monitors coming out later this year] so now i gotta rethink and see if waiting is the better move at this point haha
TFT Central have UPDATED their review of the LG 34GK950F to reflect the new v2 firmware release.
The variable refresh rate (VRR) range has been extended from 55-144Hz -to- 48-144Hz
Input lag has been vastly improved from a rather slow 13.8ms -to- 4.3ms
IMHO this now makes the Freesync version a more compelling buy over the more expensive G-SYNC version which is limited to 120hz by the module.
Just need to find one in stock some where now.
the biggest problem with LG is the unfriendly and incapable service
The devices are great as long as they work, but as soon problems occur you are lost.
Excample: my LG 32 UD99-W has been sent for repairing - didn´t hear anything form LG like status etc. Other Friends of mine got a scratched or damaged device back - this is a case for the germanconsumer protection
My experiences with Dell or Acer were extremely good.
So as a result I will never buy a monitor or a TV from LG again.
I am also thinking about selling the UD99 AND the 34GK 950G again and buy me two other ones, just because of this bad way, customers are treated here in germany.
But...but...but...OLED! How could you deny yourself access to this perfect, wondrous technology that causes birds to fall from the trees when they witness its pure, absolute blacks? As soon as this technology was created, all other TVs instantly became utterly pointless and so painful to view that you might as well be blind!
That is concerning to hear.
A good warranty and after sales support is important as monitors are a bit hit or miss at the best of times for things like dead pixels, light bleed and other inconsistencies across the panel.
But especially important if you banging down over a grand, you will want your monitor to be flawless, and if it's not to be put right.
would be premium care package an alternative?
Imo its not really an issue with a TV as when I bought my OLED I received 6 years free warranty directly with the shop I purchased it from.
I can understand with a monitor though as you don't usually get the same sort of warranty even though you can be nearly paying as much as an oled in this case.
I am not talking about OLED, i was just telling about experience with pc monitors folks and i have made
with oled i have no experience
Fortunately we have an LG rep on here to help us out occasionally, UK only though (he can't help with other regions or put you in touch with the german one, been asked about others before).
You brought up that you wouldn't buy lg TV though and they make oleds lol
Is there anywhere to buy one of the F variants of this monitor? My ROG Swift has developed a fault out of warranty and i got fobbed off by Asus.
This monitor fits all my criteria but can't seem to find it.
So is OcUK still getting for 45 in March, think I'm going to replace my aging Acer XR341CK with the 34GK950F.
The Freesync Version is currently sold for 799$ on Amazon.com and b&h
i dont understand why the prices between USA and Germany differ so much and unfair
Supply and demand, The UK has no stock.
Neither does the alternative vendor named above .... They claim April, so later than OcUK.
They need to rush on or i'll be compelled to go the Dell/Alienware route.
I'm thinking the same.
