The PC is the most prevalent gaming system and titles like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota two are exceedingly popular. Considering that competitive gaming is a large portion of gaming, it means that gamers need better gear to perform their best/ It’s not just about getting the right video card or mouse, in reality, getting the right gaming monitor is just as important, if not more so.
However, not all gaming monitors are created equal, in fact there is a multitude of attributes on displays such as the LG34UC79 and LG 29UM69 UltraWide display gaming monitors that make them better choices than others. Here’s what you need to know before buying a gaming monitor.
1) 1ms Response Time
Response time is a measure of just how quick a pixel can display a change in one shade of gray to another or from black to white. It’s crucial in fast e-sports-focussed titles as the reduced the response time allows you to react faster and perform better. Right now, one millisecond is the cheapest response time. But not all monitors have one millisecond response time; the LG34UC79 and LG 29UM69 do (as do the rest of LG’s UltraWide gaming line-up), making them worth considering for any prospective e-sport champion.
2) Motion Blur Reduction
Motion blur results in objects losing their detail in movement and may mean the difference between killing and being killed on the virtual battlefield. Motion Blur Reduction, as its name implies, limits the effects of motion blur, allowing for a split second response to changes in-game. It’s a standard feature on the LG34UC79 and LG 29UM69 and the rest of LG’s UltraWide gaming monitor range that ensures you’re never at a disadvantage in a game.
Refresh speed refers to the amount of frames a monitor can show per second. The higher the refresh rate, the smoother the image, allowing you a precise view of the proceedings. LG’s 34UC79 UltraWide gaming monitor supports 144Hz (over-clockable to 165Hz) for an optimised, fluid experience.
4) Dynamic Action Sync (DAS) mode
This handy feature minimises input lag – the time taken for your actions to show up on screen. What this means is, be it powerful spells or well-timed headshots, your actions happen as and when you intend them to be. Both the LG34UC79 along with LG 29UM69 support this attribute together with all of LG’s other UltraWide monitors, giving you a greater degree of control.
5) Black Stabiliser
Lots of games have extremely dark environments making it tough to find enemies waiting to attack you in the dark. The Dark Stabiliser feature automatically feel the darkest portions of the game and leaves them brighter, allowing you a clear view of things to come.
All of these features make LG’s UltraWide monitor line-up headlined from the LG34UC79 and LG 29UM69 well worth considering. Even at the entry level with the LG 24MP59G and Pro Gaming sections with the LG 24GM79G, most, if not all of these features are readily available, making the LG UltraWide series have the best gaming features at affordable price points.
