Customer Reviews

Good but not great.

Reviewed by on

I own both the LG 25UM58-P and LG 29UM68-P and these are my thoughts:

Pros for both monitors (and ultrawides in general):
1. For gaming, ultra wides are awesome. The extra field of view is amazing. It definitely adds an advantage - even if it's just peripheral vision, it all helps.
2. For productivity, ultrawides are definitely a nice way to get my resolution on the cheap without getting much performance impact on your PC (unless you can afford to go for the 4k x 2k ultrawides).
3. IPS panels look beautiful.
4. It absolutely is easier to multitask on an ultrawide than two 16:9 monitors - although some applications don't scale well so this isn't always the case.

Cons for both monitors (and ultrawides in general):
1. Ultrawides are typically shorter in height than their 16:9 counterparts. This is because of the 21:9 aspect ratio stretching the screen without the need for it to be physically as high. This means the pictures can be a bit misleading sometimes.
2. At a certain point, the screens are so big you actually have to move your head to see things in the outer edges of the screens which is a bit frustrating if you're using tools, like anything part of the Google Docs framework, where the buttons are situated in the outer edges of the screen.
3. Some games don't support 21:9 resolution, or if they do, they place UI elements on the far edges of the screen which makes it difficult to absorb all the information you need to absorb without having to move your eyes around the screen a lot.

Thoughts on the LG 25UM58-P:
1. Physical dimensions make it 25" horizontal, meaning it's vertical height is more similar to a 20" 16:9 screen than it is similar to a 23" 16:9 screen (so in multiple monitor situations it can look a bit funny).
2. The lack of FreeSync support makes it lower value-for-money than the LG 29UM68-P for gaming, so if you can afford the extra ~R1500 it's worth the difference.
3. To me this monitor strikes me more as workplace monitor than a gaming monitor as it's not too large for a desk with multiple monitors but comes with the benefit of extra horizontal resolution.

Thoughts on the LG 29UM68-P:
1. Because it's a 29", 21:9 monitor, it's physical height is about the same of a 23" or 24" 16:9 monitor.
2. The AMD FreeSync technology is really awesome,.
3. The screen is awesome for gaming (most of the time), but not as awesome for productivity. The physical size of the screen makes it extremely difficult to use comfortably without having to move your head around to look at everything on the screen. If I had to be honest, I wish that 29" monitors were only curved. A flat panel this large is uncomfortably big.

Final verdict:
If you really want an ultrawide and you want it for gaming, the best one to buy would probably be the LG 29UM68-P, but I think a 2k monitor with 16:9 ratio is probably better (and not a whole lot more expensive). If you want an ultrawide to improve productivity on a budget, the LG 25UM58-P is the best value for money.

For both monitors, however, I do not regret buying either.

Great Monitor

If you are looking to purchase a cost effective ultra wide, i recommend this screen.
I play online FPS's and my wife uses it for photo and video editing.

Love the monitor, only negative is the 60FPS, however unless a streamer or hardcore gamer this should not be an issue.

Great value for money.

So disappointed with LG

Just dont.

I was stoked about this screen, the online review looked good and its ultra wide at a good price.

This all sounds good until I started using it. The screen I got had very bad color/light bleed and the alleged 75hz refresh rate is also a lie. The max is 60 unless you lower the resolution, so that is totally misleading just as the promotional pictures. Although the physical bezel is like 1mm thin, which is part of the plastic shell the screen is housed in, the screen has a black rim which is basically another bezel so the screen isnt as full as they advertise it.

The only good thing I can say about this screen is that the color representation is great, but thats it. If you are bothered by light and color bleed, which is probably due to poor manufacturing, then stay away as you wont be satisfied.

Unfortunately there isnt many affordable ultra wide screens on the market, so if you must then I guess you can buy one if its on special and around R2000. If you can afford it rather spend your money on a different brand.
