Product Comparison: LG 38UC99-W vs Acer XR382CQK
- Ideal monitor for work. Has amazing resolution.
- Beautiful picture, great design, LOVE the Bluetooth audio! The stand is a great design and allows you to easily position the display to your preference with truly very little effort.
- 3840 X 1600 (supports 1080 HD) is comfortable to the eyes and the clarity is crisp. It’s a sight to behold and it’s something anyone will be an awe.
- Refresh rate of 60Hz and can be boosted to 75Hz, this is going to depend on your graphic card from your computer.
- Again, since the screen is so large, the stand is small (which is great) and if you knock the monitor, or move it, there will be a sway back and forth.
- When pushing it to 75Hz there will be some lag (not much, but you’ll see it)
- Size is shockingly good, but it took ~3 hours to get used to.
- Monitor provides great picture, at 3840x1600 it offers amazing detail to whatever I'm viewing.
- The resolution is great - getting 60Hz at 3840x1600 via USB-C on my 2016 MBP 15-inch.
- Resolution is great. I didn't expect to love the downlighting, but I do. Several color options and brightness settings for downlighting. Swivel is nice too.
- When you set the resolution to 3440*1440 and don't scale the text size, the text will be a little bit blur.
- The 38 ultra wide 21:9 is perfect for multi tasking and having multiple windows/programs open. 3840 horizontally gives you true UHD.
- This large curved monitor is the perfect monitor for me. I dob't care or use it for graphics editing or even gaming.
- This monitor is a dream for me; I spend around 12 or more hours per day working on my desktop. It is perfect for my architecture design work, easy to use and looks great.
- I have absolutely no complaints about it that would keep this monitor from receiving 5 stars from me. I love the anti-glare and curved screen.
- For my needs this monitor is perfect, especially the saturation, dark's, and color space spectrum.
- Text and DPI are excellent. I was nervous about leaving Retina DPI as I like crisp text (coding, slack, excel, atom, contracts, reports).
- Brightness is excellent. Mines at 70/100 and I like very bright and very white whites.
- The matte screen finish really helps with reducing glare since there is a window directly behind where I'm sitting so the sunlight was always a pain, but the monitor does a good job at reducing the glare.
- Rich colors, excellent contrast and sharpness (at 3800 by 1600 it was always going to be great for movies) and very little light bleed.
- Less saturated colors (red/blue/green) compared to LG, possibly due to matte vs. glossy screen. The flatter colors are easier on the eyes surprisingly, especially for office and productivity work.
- Built-in 10W speakers perform the expectations you expect, a rich bass that is one of the best out there with built-in speakers.
- A lot of gaming features (FreeSync on racing looks phenomenal) that you’re able to customize to your liking in getting the best in quality when playing.
- Easy to Setup: No screws. Only hard part was clearing off your desk to find room.
- The smart energy saver turns off the monitor (good) but it blinks the power light constantly which is incredibly irritating.
- Because of having no swivel, for me, it became challenging and irritated to get in the back to plug and or disconnect a connecting port.
- Bottom LED lights are pretty cool, easy to change or turn off.
- Generates very little heat or isn't noticeable at all
- Zero wobble with this stand, it's extremely sturdy
- The sick LED lights that display under the monitor are a great touch and one that I really think adds to the uniqueness of this display.
- Only way to adjust volume takes 2 clicks after programming the shortcut
- On board settings are a little tricky to navigate.
- Speakers could be better, but definitely not the worst I've ever heard on a monitor.
- Works almost flawlessly with my MacBook Touch. I run a Thunderbolt 3 cable from my MBT to an OWC hub and then exit the hub through another Thunderbolt 3 to the monitor.
- System is setup in a bright area with windows, the antiglare on the surface is perfect. I had to buy a mini-DP to standard DP cable to get 60hz from a MacBook Pro.
- Love the size, love the curved display, love the connections, love that it connects to the new MacBook Pro via USB-C.
- One thing I don't like is that the USB ports in the back don't allow for connectivity to the computer. So they are really only good for charging phones.
- USB-C functionality is perfect for Macbook Pro 2016
- HDMI (at least cable I had, not one it came with) seems to be working at 75hz, at least thats what it is showing in games. I am not sure why Acer says 75hz with display port only.
- I purchased this to work from home in the evenings and weekends. It worked great with my company supplied laptop with a USB-C port.
- I'm running from my computers display port and the image and sound quality are both good (sounds pretty good for monitor speakers).
- Love it. Use the included cables. I used an old display port cable and it didn't like it. I switched to the one in the bax and everything works great.
