Quick check in. Got my monitor today.
It identifies itself as a 34UM95 on my Mac... Odd. Text looks pretty awful, but that may be because I have been working on my Retina display while I was waiting for this to arrive.
I noticed a little bleed in the bottom left. Doesn't seem awful. I will try the bezel unclipping trick.
Stand is definitely a bit on the shaky side, my desk is pretty solid though so it shouldn't be an issue for me.
All in all, I am impressed, just need to get this jaggy text sorted out.

Odd. Assuming you're running it at it's native rez of 3440x1440. It's a .232 pitch display. Text should be the sharpest it can be (non 4k). Wonder if it's due to the device you have it hooked to now or the cord you're using

I had the same reaction with my LG 34UM95 with my Macbook Pro. I ended up knocking the sharpness down a notch to 4. This smoothed everything out perfectly.

Using thunderbolt. I think I just got accustomed to the DPI on my MacBook Pro.

I tried that as well, 4 sent it way to soft for me though. There is a huge difference between 4 and 5 on my display. I may try to get my hands on their calibrator.

Try running the following in a terminal, and then restarting the computer:
defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 2
For whatever reason, OS X doesn't turn on font smoothing for some LCDs automatically.

Font smoothing is definitely on for me, I can toggle it in System Preferences and there is a clear difference. I am getting used to it now, like I said, I think the issue for me was using the display on my Retina MacBook Pro for the last few weeks.
