You can also get 29UC88 but it is much more expensive, for example on amazon.com UM68 is 240 and UC88 350. $110 difference. Quite a lot just for slight curve and height adjust. You can easily deal with high adjust even without height adjustable stand. Or you can pay 45% more, you need to decide by yourself.

Also I wouldn't expect anything revolutionary coming put for this segment, you will waste your life waiting.

A *good* height-adjustable desk arm should run you >$100 usually. That'll be much better in total adjustability than the one on the monitor, but still definitely eats up the price difference here regardless.

Curves are always going to cost a premium over non-curves in the monitor space. They might supposedly reduce bleed because the eye is closer to a normal angle (normal in the geometry sense e.g. 'right angle') to more of it, but on the flipside I think the curve makes the edge wrap covering the edges of the backlighting less reliable from a tolerance standpoint during assembly, so 'stuff happens'.

Still love mine though.

Its why i bought an adjustable stand. Paid about 40€ for it and its top quality, i used it on my 23" hp then on my 29 ultrawide makes all the difference. You def dont have to spend 100$ for one.

Glad to hear a lot of good feedback for LG29UM68. At first, I plan to buy UC88 for the curve but look like I should get LG29UM68 instead to save some money or should I get UC88 blinksmiley.gif

OK, I stand corrected. wink.gif But that's just height adjustable with a little bit of pan/tilt. And not very dynamic with what looks like a lock screw of some sort.

I was thinking more of something like this that has counterweighted height adjustment, swivel, pan, etc. And this is nowhere near the top-end brand either, its a bit of a knockoff. You can literally just grab the screen, reposition, and let go and it stays.

The one I have isn't as good as even that one, ball-head at the end lets you sort of have some dynamic orientation control, and it has spring-loaded height control, but otherwise you just sort of 'pan' it around on the 2 elbowed sections...

It has more vertical height range though which I wanted for a sitting/standing desk arrangement.

I'm going to see if I can compare them both in person. It's the only way I can determine if the curve is worth the price jump or not. A separate stand will definitely be cheaper than going for the curved + height adjustable version. So now it's down to curved vs flat for me.

Shame that there's no Samsung alternative.

Curve on 29UC88 is not noticeable. Screen is too small to benefit from curve in the first place, but the curve is so minimal that it is really not worth any additional money. I am using aggressively curved ultrawide right now and I love the curve, but on 29UC88 it is just like non-existent, has zero function and zero meaning.

Thanks for provide more detail about the curve so I decide to go for LG29UM68. However I saw an inbox video that LG not provide display port in box. Do I need display port cable to get 75hz with my nvidia gtx970?

Unlucky to me that I can't compare this two version by myself due to UC88 not available yet. Look forward to see if you can provide some feedback between this two model beside of curve and height adjustment. wink.gif

HDMI 1.4 is enough for 2560x1080. Its up to 3440x1440@50Hz and 4K@30Hz if I remember well. Manufacturer cannot create monitor with ports too weak to display picture correctly, that much is obvious. And yes there was no DP coming with it, what an bs for FreeSync monitor that needs DP to make FreeSync work...

Unfortunately I can't, I just had 29UC88 for a moment, mostly to compare with my 34UC98 and see the difference between 29" 2560x1080 and 34" 3440x1440, so I can tell you about the curve and etc, but I have no direct comparison with 29UM68. However I wouldn't expect huge differences in picture quality, UM68 also has the same features like FreeSync on 40-75 range. They should be very similar if not the same.
