This wiki has been updated 2 times since it was first published in October of 2019. The 34-inch monitor category is almost exclusively occupied by displays with a 21:9 aspect ratio. They're 31 inches wide, 13.4 inches tall, and provide more desktop productivity space for working and a wider field of view for gaming than traditional 16:9 displays. And since they're rapidly becoming more popular, there are more high-end options available than ever before. Here are some of the best. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best 34 inch monitor on Amazon.

6. MSI Optix

Editor's Notes

October 30, 2019:

This year's most exciting ultrawide monitors are dominated by those from LG for multiple reasons. The company produces the vast majority of high-resolution display panels for the US market, and also they offer a huge variety of their own products with varying levels of performance. The LG WK650 is about as entry-level as 21:9 monitors come, though it doesn't have the richest colors, and the LG GL750 is a quality upgrade if you're willing to cope with its less-than-perfect resolution. On the other end of the spectrum, the LG WL850 and LG UltraFine are two of the most advanced, with ultra-high resolutions and a bevy of connectivity options. The LG Ultragear GK950F is possibly the ideal ultrawide gaming monitor, and the LG WK95C is an all-around beast of a peripheral.

And there are still plenty of other worthwhile options to consider. For those who prefer a flat screen that doesn't cost a ton there's the Samsung SJ55W, while gamers will like the advanced technology used by the brand-new MSI Optix. The Acer XR342CK is a good mid-range option that doesn't sacrifice much, if any picture quality, and of course no rundown would be complete without a showing from the Dell Ultrasharp, which is year-in and year-out one of the best displays on the market.

Also keep in mind that most ultrawide monitors use curved panels, because when a screen is this wide and you're sitting at a desk's length away from it, the edges tend to be distorted or washed out. And not every game is easy to get running at 21:9 aspect ratios, and if you're into high resolutions as well as high frame rates you may want to consider a traditional gaming monitor.
