Product Overview

LG 38WN95C-W is a high-end 38-inch curved monitor in LG's UltraWide series. Powered by Nano IPS panel, it delivers 98% DCI-P3 coverage and 144Hz refresh rate with support for FreeSync Premium Pro and DisplayHDR 600.
One of the first Nano IPS displays to feature a curved form factor, the 38WN95C has received several industry awards for its display quality. The panel delivers not only wider color gamut and higher color accuracy but also faster response time. The relatively high 450 nits of brightness together contribute to the high dynamic range that the monitor is able to offer.
Designed for productivity, this UltraWide monitor also comes with a Thunderbolt 3 hub, including power delivery up to 94W. It is compatible with both AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and NVIDIA G-SYNC.
For those who do not require this level of color reproduction, LG also markets the 38WK95C that uses a traditional IPS panel.

The 38 inch, 3840x1600 screen provides enough space for you to open multiple windows at once. It's impressive for gaming due to its extremely quick response time, incredibly low input lag, and FreeSync support.
