I also just ordered a philips bdm4065uc. When I recieve it I am going to compare it for gaming. Sometimes I feel 31" is slightly too small for gaming, pity this model isnt 40" aswell. Ohwells just gonna have to wait and see what the philips is like.

In sRGB mine has grayish/cyanish? tint on the right side of the monitor, for some reason after I bumped birghtness to 100% and back to 50ish the red tint from left seemed to have disappeared. It's rev02 btw and cost, including tax and shipping ,1125€ from Germany.

I have decided to sell my LG and keep the 40" philips. I like the color and vividness that I can set on the LG better, but the Philips size is just more immersive for gaming (my main use) so I have decided to sell my LG.

Would you guys consider this monitor, or the LG 34" Curved, or the Dell curved 34"? I am trying to decide between this one and that one for my gaming / business work stuff. I love clarity and both seem to be good at that.

I cant comment on the curved screens but if you got the 31MU97 u will be happy with its picture quality. It is very good.

Mine came in today but I'm 50/50. I've been using the Dell 30" U3011 for a long time and I love it, perfect screen. But after hooking this up the backlight bleed is bothering me. You tell me if I'm being too sensitive or if this looks normal for an IPS. All of these are taken with my phone cam, so a little grainy. Pure white in photoshop straight on: Same, from the side: From the front, but black background: It's the bottom left on the dark screen that really bothers me, just feels cheap - but I might be crazy. I'm also running a 680 gtx @ 4092x2160 and only able to do 50hz. I've tried two different DP cables.

My perfect LG 31MU97 has gone for sale in the "for sale/trade" section of the site if there's any interest. I've gone 5k (but smaller of course) for my video work. The LG has been simply sensational however.

is this a good monitor ? amazon is selling for $1,154.29 now http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OKSEVTY/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Edit: So I bought this monitor and tested myself. At 2048x1920 I can not get 61Hz (or 70Hz or 75Hz) to work. The custom resolution can be created and used (the monitor does not prevent it), however the image is very distorted.

Mine has the correct EDID however the resolutions are still missing: http://pastebin.com/F8GpaHb5 Though thanks to what you posted I was able to use the timings to get 4096x2160 working for me (by adding the mode to xrandr), thanks.

Oh, the red color is normal? I want this monitor but the backlight bleed is terrible......... Too less on the 32 inch monitor........

Hello. xrandr (by itself, with radeon, and with amdgpu) does not seem to be able to read the extra edid information xrandr with the closed source amd binary blob is able to read the extra edid information. note: my timings are to three decimal places (556.730MHz) other peoples were to one decimal palce (556.7MHz) which caused occasional artifacting for me So here is the output for those of you who want to copy down the timings.

Is there a NEWER model or replacement for the LG 31MU97 yet? I think this monitor first came out in 2014 and is almost 3yrs old now.

Wow? Is it that old? Time flies! I've been loving mine the entire time. Really a great monitor. Edit: This made me search my email receipts - Yep! Fall of 2014 from Fry's Amazing how fast it goes by!

Whats sad is that there is NO newer or comparable better monitor with such specs out there from LG. IF there is, then someone pleas enlighten me.

Sad to say that after a little over 2 years my 31MU97 died and LG is telling me it's around $350 to fix it. Totally furious.

That sucks.....What is the warranty on LG monitors 1 year? I know ACER gives 3 years warranty that's why i stuck with them.

It depends upon region and the consumer protection laws... Here in the USA we have the "hahaha ...you thought you would get some warranty from this large company??!" 1 year useless warranty. Same monitor gets 2 years in Europe and 3 years in Australia from what I've heard so far.
