LG UltraWide 34WP500 34" UWFHD Ultra-Wide Monitor (2021)
LG 34WP500 is an entry-level 34-inch monitor in LG's 2021 UltraWide series. It offers similar features to the 34WP65G, though it loses out on some to achieve a lower price point.
Like the 34WP65G, the 34WP500 is a UWFHD flat monitor with an IPS panel. However, it has a narrower color gamut and brightness and loses the DisplayHDR 400 rating. Another feature that is missing is the USB-C port and DisplayPort: the 34WP500 is HDMI-only.
Still, this monitor supports AMD FreeSync and comes with gaming features such as Black Stabilizer and Crosshair. It further supports Reader Mode for long working sessions, though the stand that the monitor comes with has only tilt adjustment.
LG also markets a similar monitor in the 29-inch class as the 29WP500.
