DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports, a headphone jack, two downstream USB 3.0 connections, and a USB type C port with DP Alternate Mode and up to 60W Power Delivery are all included in the list of available connectivity choices. Keep in mind that a USB-C to USB-A connection must be used as the upstream port in order to achieve USB 3.0 data speed on the monitor’s USB-C port. The USB hub can only support USB 2.0 speeds when connecting USB-C to USB-C.
The monitor’s 178° broad viewing angles, dithered 10-bit colour depth support (8-bit + 2-bit FRC), and standard 99 percent sRGB colour gamut are all features of LG’s AH-IPS panel.

As expected, the LG 34WN80C has great input lag performance, with only about 10ms of delay apparent at 60Hz. In addition to a flicker-free backlight and an inbuilt low-blue light filter, the monitor may be used for lengthy periods of time without causing headaches or strain on the eyes.
