The LG 39GS95QE (W-OLED) is a premium-priced large OLED monitor ideal for competitive gaming due to its very good refresh rate and exceptional contrast, offering deep blacks and vibrant colors. It's also great for HDR gaming and media consumption with decent peak brightness. With its wide color gamut, it's suitable for digital and print photo editing. However, its brightness and color volume are not ideal for very brightly lit environments. The monitor has a 21:9 aspect ratio, which is expansive for productivity, though its text clarity and image sharpness might not be as clear as other monitors. For connectivity, it boasts multiple HDMI 2.1 ports and a DisplayPort 1.4 but does not support USB Power Delivery. It has a low total response time, reducing ghosting, and its adjustable stand offers ergonomic adjustments. If HDR video editing is crucial for you, you might want to consider alternative options.
