Got it!
It's tooo heavy for my LX arm, so I had to resort to stand.
My typing seems to shake the screen slightly, which is silly..
I honestly wasn't expecting it to feel so big.
I wish they gave a DP end to mini-DP end too, because my graphics card only has two mini display ports, HDMI, and two DVI's. Running on HDMI does not go to 50hz, it selects 30hz instead. Likely a graphics card constraint, rather than the monitor, but it makes sense.. Ehh... 30hz does not feel good.
I keep feeling like I have to switch work spaces like I usually do on my 1080p monitors, but.. I don't have to.
Regarding backlight bleed, every point when looked at straight on seems fine, though from the center viewpoint it does appear a little lighter on the edges..
Honestly, I thought black was supposed to mean black with an IPS display. The blacks I am getting are pretty sad. They don't matter to me so-much but when inspecting that quality it is mediocre.

An LX arm should support 20-25 pounds on a single arm. (Depending on the specific arm you have) Since the monitor is only 14.8 without the stand per the specs, It should work no problem on an LX arm. You might have to adjust the arm tension to hold it where you want it, but other than that you should be good with your LX.

Agreed, especially considering I'm using mine with the ergo freedom right now, which is only rated to 17-18 pounds. It works perfectly, and I can even put it in portrait!

Cordite: the closest that you're going to get to true blacks are on a VA panel. IPS does a lot of things well but deep blacks usually isn't one of them. You can correct some of it through calibration and gamma adjustments but it's just a limitation of the panel technology. I play a lot of dark/horror games and got tired of the "light" blacks that my Samsung 120hz monitor was displaying so I sidegraded to the BenQ BL3200PT while I waited for my 34UM94 to ship. This meant going back to 60hz but my, what a gorgeous screen the BenQ is. It's a 32" 2560x1440 VA panel and I've never seen such deep, true blacks on a computer monitor before. There is absolutely no backlight bleed and the different panel type means that there is no IPS glow in the corners so it's absolutely a joy to use at night or for movies. So as I said on [H], the UM94 is going to have to be one heck of a monitor to displace the BL3200PT as my primary display. They each have their strengths and it really comes down to what strengths of a particular panel most appeal to you, as well as what disadvantages you're willing to tolerate. I'm just happy to know that for the most part these 34UM94s seem to be among the best in terms of panel defects of all of the LGs produced so far. I still haven't opened mine; hoping to get some time to bond with it later this week or this weekend. :)
