The LG 38UC99-W would’ve been unmatched in its league if Acer hadn’t released their XR382CQK – a device with nearly identical specs – in December of 2016. At the time of this review, the Acer is listed in the catalogue but not available yet. The LG display has been introduced at IFA 2016 and enjoys great availability on the market at the moment.
This big ultrawide display is definitely a looker: It’s brushed aluminum finish paired with the beautiful front of the stand makes it a real eye catcher. The glossy white back gives it a simple and elegant appearance. Both the power cable and power supply are also kept in white beautifully complementing the look of the device.
At 9,3 kg, this 38” behemoth certainly isn’t lightweight making a solid foot or strong wall mount a necessity. The foot can easily be removed and the display can be attached to a VESA mount. Without the foot, the display weighs only 7,7 kg. Most mounts are rated for a maximum load of 8 kg, so you’re lucky here.
