Nice ultra wide monitor, IPS, Freesync, small bezel, VESA mountable. Only 60hz and I believe 5ms response time. All in all I am very happy with the monitor. Looks good, nice and large and way cheaper then a 34" 1440p.
A beautiful looking monitor, made all the more beautiful with FreeSync, IPS panel, included cable management clip and a 75 Hz refresh rate using FreeSync.
Shame about the glossy plastic though.
The monitor it's self is pretty damn cool. 1080p ultrawide is not a common format. Some older games won't recognize the aspect ratio, but with a little tweaking they run just fine. Setup was a struggle for me personally, because I had never used a freesync monitor before. I was completely lost, due to believing that it would have some sort of automatic detection/activation. I had to change my monitor and driver settings manually, which was foreign to me having come from a Westinghouse television that did everything I ever needed automatically without any setup of any kind...(except freesync of course, the whole point of a new monitor) Even switching between PCs and consoles and more the old TV adjusted everything masterfully. This one has more control, but with great control comes great adjustments. And I had to make quite a few.
Browsing and multitasking are amazing on this thing. And gaming is much more smooth, now that the initial setup worked out. It's like a whole new world. A magic place I never knew. A space for my windows, and great workflow. It's why I give it all the stars I do.
Such imersive gaming experience. Good for productivity too.
Amazing looking monitor thats great for almost anything
Beautiful monitor, had to buy it due to awesome discount at my local Fry's store with their in-store promotions. Movies looked awesome, some games look stunning and immersive. Some games will be stretched out, if that bothers you, might not be the monitor for you. I love this monitor.
The Ultra-wide LG 29UM68 29" monitor is quite perfect in terms of being a "monitor", but definitely not a good choice for someone who's going to need accurate colors. It has a big and handy space for multitasking and production, it's not as huge as the 34" version, it's the perfect size for me with a reasonable price. Speakers are very handy for when I play with my PS4!
I actually have the UM69 but it's not on this site. This is a great monitor. Love the size, love the colours, love the ultrawide, and love that it has FreeSync. Fantastic monitor.
Like I said before, I heard good and bad things about ultra wide displays when browsing monitors for this build. The thing that sold me on it was some positive reviews on how they make your gaming experience much better with the added field of few they provide, especially for first person shooters. This LG screen was on sale at the time I bought it, but even at its normal price, it is a great entry level ultra wide screen that provides full HD with a refresh rate of 60htz, overclockable to 75.
29" best size for full hd and has freesync. The games are very smooth colour are very good. I never go back to 16:9
