LG 29UM68-P overview

  • 1Description

The 29UM68-P 29" 21:9 UltraWide FreeSync IPS Monitor from LG features an ultra-wide display that's suitable for both work and play. For work and multitasking purposes, an ultra-wide display lets you have multiple windows side by side, or one large window where you can see all the details. On the other hand, gaming on this monitor will feel more immersive as the large screen takes up most of your field of view, putting you right in the middle of the action.

With a 2560 x 1080 resolution, the 29UM68-P provides you with crisp and clear pictures. It is constructed with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, which has wide viewing angles and immersive colors. Combined with a 1,000:1 typical contrast ratio, 250 cd/m² brightness rating, 16.7 million colors support, and a 5 ms response time, you'll be able to enjoy vivid, lag-free content reproduction with darker blacks and brighter bright colors.

Furthermore, this monitor supports FreeSync (Adaptive Sync) technology through DisplayPort, which synchronizes your graphics card with the display to output content at variable refresh rates, eliminating screen stuttering and tearing. Connect this display to your system via DisplayPort or HDMI, and then tilt it to your viewing preference. Otherwise, you can install a different mount or stand using the VESA mounting pattern holes on the back.

UltraWide IPS Display
The UltraWide IPS screen allows you to multitask more efficiently than before. Have up to three windows side by side or even work on large Excel spreadsheets without having to scroll.
FreeSync
This technology allows for communication between the graphics card and monitor to synchronize frame rate output. Utilizing a dynamic refresh rate, AMD FreeSync effectively eliminates tearing, stuttering, and jerkiness for smooth gameplay.
Game Mode
Dedicated game modes assure optimal viewing conditions. Included are a total of three different preset game modes: two first-person shooter modes plus a real-time strategy mode.
Advanced Gaming Features
Activate Black Stabilizer to reveal more detail in dark scenes, and Dynamic Action Sync for smooth, fluid gaming action.
On-Screen Control & Screen Split 2.0
Easily adjust your monitor settings with on-screen control. Using Split Screen 2.0, you can customize your monitor layout, resizing and displaying multiple windows at once with 14 options including Picture-in-Picture (PIP).

    LG 29UM68-P reviews

    29UM68-P 29" 21:9 UltraWide FreeSync IPS Monitor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent monitor. Amazing colors I use this monitor for PC games. The first thing I noticed was the amazing colors and details. Black is very black and white is very white and everything in between is better then I expected. The games that I play, like Team Fortress 2, Battlefield 1, Fallout 4, Smite, Endless Legend, all support the native resolution of the monitor, 2560 x 1080 pixels. The monitor response with the HDMI cable in the package is outstanding. I would like to put a good word for B&H for very good prices, easy ordering and fast shipping. I'm buying from them for 17 years and never had a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent monitor Love the screen split 2.0 configurations. I used this monitor to replace 2 19 monitors. Excellent clarity and speed. My only wish is that it was slightly taller. My previous setup had one monitor turned vertically in order to easily read legal-size documents on one screen. This monitor doesn't provide quite enough space for that. Perhaps I should have purchased the 34, but that just seemed too big for an executive desk/office. Otherwise, 5 stars all the way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good monitor for non-gamer as well I'm not a gamer. I use it for my daily work. I like the screen-split feature. I have mid-2012 Macbook Air, I tried a couple of mini display (thunderbolt) port to HDMI adaptor, but I was not getting full monitor resolution. Then finally I tried, mini display (thunderbolt) port to display port cable and it started using full monitor resolution. Tip: If macbook air, try mini display (thunderbolt) port to HDMI adaptor for good resolution.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Price, but must get SwitchResX if using a MacBook! This monitor is great for the price. If you're a pixel peeper then you'll want to get a 4k Monitor... however, still a great upgrade if you're originally only using a laptop for your work!� One huge note. If you are using a MacBook Pro then the monitor will stretch your MacBook Display (there is a fix though). Everything will look pixelated and stretched to fit the monitors wide aspect ratio. Which is un-usable if you are doing professional work and scaling everything properly. After doing some research I found a software company called SwitchResX. They change the aspect ratio from your laptop screen to your monitor so that you can use the whole monitor screen without any distortion. This will also allow you to have a larger resolution on your monitor. This will fix the low quality look due to stretching the native resolution. Hope that helps some of you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Needed I am in the process of building my new computer, and one of the hardest challenges I had was finding the right screen for all of the games I love to play AND for working from home which I would need at least 2 monitors for had I not gone with this choice. I am not making a top of the line build so the 1080p was a perfect choice and even though I haven't gotten to test it with my new build yet (not finished) I attached it to my laptop for work and it's beyond my expectations for looks and functionality. It's exactly what you need if your looking for a big screen with limited space. Beautiful!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced our Newsroom's dual monitor setup Just redesigned our newsroom and swapped all the dual monitor setups for one of theses at each desk with a monitor arm. It checks all the boxes. Same utility of having dual monitors but with the benefit of being able to have a document or software window centered on the screen when needed without having to turn your head over to one or the other dual monitors. Moving to this paradigm throughout our entire office. Great price too! Beat Amazon!
