The 34-inch curved-screen UQHD display is now available. 

LG has officially released the world's first monitor with a curved IPS panel and an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio. The 34UC97 is now available and is geared toward professional and entertainment users.

"Many people spend more time in front of computer monitors than they do in front of TVs, and yet the industry hasn't delivered the same level of innovation when it comes to monitors," said Tim Alessi, LG's U.S. head of new product development. "At LG, innovation in display technologies isn't just limited to our cutting-edge TV products, which is why we are expanding our U.S. monitor lineup with our 21:9 Curved UltraWide model."

The 34UC97 features a 34-inch IPS LED panel with an Ultra Quad HD resolution of 3440 x 1440. In addition, the display uses a curved screen design and a 21:9 aspect ratio. Likewise, Thunderbolt 2 support is included as well and MAXX AUDIO tech with a 7W stereo speaker system is also integrated. Finally, the monitor offers True Color Finder color calibration software to ensure color accuracy, and LG's 4-Screen Split feature for easier multitasking.

LG's 34UC97 is on sale now in various retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $1,299.
