I have nothing against these top of the linew monitors, quite opposite, but i hope that regular 1920x1080 monitors with FreeSync at very affordable prices hit the market soon.
I also hope/expect that in the war between FreeSync and G-Sync, FreeSync wins.

The tech certainly is improving, but what about increasing the refresh rate? While 60Hz is doable and will suffice for some gamers (and the workspace market), it's just not going to cut it for those who want to stay at the bleeding edge or those wanting any competitive edge they can get. So, that means 120Hz at a minimum.... which also means a non-IPS panel.

As for price, I don't expect this to go for anything less than $800 USD. Not bad considering what you're getting, but not an ideal compromise.

People say there isn't demand for 4k @ 120 Hz. I completely disagree. This precisely and EXACTLY what everyone wants. DP 1.3 was released and there are lots of games that can play higher than 60 fps at 4k on current cards from Nvidia/AMD. Please make a 10 or 12bit color 28" 4k monitor with 3000:1 or better contrast and 1 ms gray to gray response and 350 brightness AND YOU CAN TAKE ALL MY MONEY. Not buying a monitor until 4k at 120 Hz please!!!!!!!

My wife got me the current LG 34" 3440x1440 IPS monitor and so far I am absolutely in love. I finally have a single monitor that can replace my dual screen setup and its saves a ton of room on my desk. Plus games are amazing on it. I have a much wider field of vision and it rocks!

Waiting on the 40 inch 4K IPS monitor from Phillips for around $800. I refuse to go backwards in resolution after using a 30" IPS 2560 x 1600 the last 5 years.

Why are all of these comments being downvoted? They're doing nothing but stating their opinions. The gaming community wants higher resolutions, yes, but won't accept those resolutions if they can't be displayed at a refresh rate higher than 60hz. And yes, a refresh rate higher than 60 can make a serious difference in fast-paced games. If you ever get the chance, go see a monitor with 120hz Lightboost enabled. You'll see just how smooth everything is. It's almost lifelike. No stuttering, no blur caused by objects moving. Don't downvote just because you don't like their opinion. Downvote if it's an irrelevant or ignorant post.

well so far for the most people that have used gsync monitors, it is smooth and responsive at much lower framerates than a standard monitor.

Big Bug-
I have no idea why my comment was down voted on this site. Downvoted 4 times without any comments from those unknown members. I was merely stating what I believe would be the perfect UHD 4k monitor, as this LG widescreen UHD monitor is very nice, it lacks the refresh speed of an Asus Swift for instance. As you clearly understood, I was leaving my own opinion in reference to the aspect of the article that discusses UHD gaming and AMD's FreeSync ad Nvidia G-Sync and that many gamers, myself included would benefit/enjoy a 4k monitor with 120 Hz refresh capability especially for fast paced gaming. For some people 60 Hz refresh meets their performance needs, but for experienced and even hardcore gamers 120 Hz delivers a level of response and smoothness one has experience to see the noticeable improvement. That being said, this LG 34incher should be fantastic for photos, videos, and casual gaming, but I will wait for a faster panel hopefully from LG until my next purchase.

Why do people care whether their comments are downvoted or up voted? It's like some kind of popularity contest or need for approval. If you're worried about how many votes you get then you should probably stay away from political sites. As for the monitor, I hope they make TVs with these ratio which most movies are formatted for instead of watching movies with black bars on the top and bottom with 1080p format or 2160p.
