What customers say about "Display"
LG 29WK600 UltraWide 29-inch Monitor
  • The colours were good and vibrant due to the IPS panel used.
  • It has a crisp image with vibrant colors, and with PPI of 96 it is slightly better than an 24 inch FHD monitor with 91 PPI.
  • IPS screen with accurate colours, large enough for basic video/photo editing, great for gaming.
  • Brightness and sharpness of fonts makes it so much easier on my eyes and I don't feel tired at the end of a long day.
  • Only downside of the monitor would be that it's not curved, but honestly not a big deal at all.

What customers say about "Features"
LG 29WK600 UltraWide 29-inch Monitor
  • The inclusion of FreeSync (40-75hz range over HDMI) was useful as I have an AMD card.
  • Nvidia has just added support for freesync this works without any problems.
  • You can tilt the monitor and it works fine on my desk but you might need a monitor stand if it is too low for you.
  • HDR is a pointless effect and just cranks the brightness to max and makes a few other smaller changes.
  • The speakers, they are very tiny and almost completely lack bass. Disappointing feature.
LG 29WK500 IPS Monitor
  • Huge amount of screen real estate, and the HDMI screen in screen feature is really cool.
  • The monitor has good features and attractive look, happy with size too.
  • First of all, the main feature, the 21:9 aspect ratio is so useful.
  • When gaming with Freesync make sure to have vsync enabled in game. I like this feature.
  • Head over to LG's website, download and install the Win 10 Driver and then the "On Screen Control" App. App with good features.
