Meh, nice but not needed. I wouldn't pay a premium for it if it doesn't add to the image.

No its not. UM88 has 60 Hz refresh rate and 40-60 FreeSync range (or 48-60, there is mixed info around just like with 29UC88). Which is actually much more sensible than 75 Hz with 55-75 range that makes FreeSync useless, assuming that you care about FreeSync and see benefit in it, I don't see much and it is certainly not a game changer, it works and it is good to have, but for smooth experience you need to keep yourself at max refresh rate of your monitor anyway.

As for overclocking, looking at all of those frame skipping reports for those monitors after any kind of overclock, even by 1 Hz, I don't think it will be overclockable.

You might be right. I'm not using Freesync so I figured they were the same. Conflicting reports online as well.

Thats a thing with LG displays, especially ultrawides, you can find conflicting information even on LG website for some displays. For example here. Once it says 40-75 Hz for FreeSync range, and a bit below 48-75. Actual range is 40-75.

Only way to find out for sure is to try it I guess. I don't see why it would be any different than the LG 34UC88.

With UM88 there is no wondering, it is 60 Hz for sure. There are quite a few differences between it and UC88, curve, refresh rate, FreeSync range, stand mounting, joystick placement (in UC88/98 it is hidden inside while on UM88 it is on outside, vulnerable for damage), back design is different, bottom bezel is the one from 29UC88 and lower grade flat versions so it is glossy and much bigger than on UC88/98 which have thin and mat bottom bezel, this can mean that bezels around also will be as huge as on 29UC88. I don't know about panel quality, but they already did a lot to differentiate cheaper flat version from more expensive flagship curved ones, so I wouldn't be surprised if on UM88 they used a bit lower grade panel, more similar to the one from 29UC88 than 34UC88/98, because so far this monitor looks much closer to 29UC88 than 34UC88 in terms of build and etc. It is hard to say, very little reviews up there and if there are any, they are German. There is one in English but they called speakers in this monitor incredible, so this is not reliable source of information.

I agree with you on the 60Hz but I don't see why they would use a different IPS panel. They are pretty much all the same anyway. As for the bezels, they are the same on the UM and UC. As for Freesync, it's better to have a 40-60Hz range than 55-75Hz. In regards to the joystick, who cares? You are assuming that it will be damaged easier. As for "flagship" models, they literally all have the same picture.

Joystick is damaged much easier, not monitor itself. Bezels are definitely not the same, just look on PRAD videos for UM88 and UC98, at least bottom bezel is surely way bigger. Range is better, thats for sure, if I had an option to choose between 55-75 and 40-60 then I am taking 40-60 every single time. Even if its 48-60 as conflicting reports say.

But FreeSync is really not impressive for me so I don't really care anymore and I will be back to Nvidia once 1080Ti is out, I switched to AMD basically only because of FreeSync being much more accessible and actually available in quality monitors, in opposite to G-sync that is available only in some Asus or Acer gaming garbage with zero quality and horrible prices at the same time, but now there is no reason to stay with AMD and their chaotic driver support, CPU overshot and eternal waiting for high performance cards after adaptive sync turned out to be rather little improvement.

Joystick longevity has not been tested. Bezel being "Way" bigger? As in a few millimeters bigger?

I'm not using Freesync because I usually buy Nvidia. I'm curious because my brother wants an AMD card and so the 40-60Hz range would work out better for him. Still thinks he wants a 100Hz+ monitor so I advised him to purchase a refurb Acer 27" 144Hz IPS monitor with G-Sync for $384 to test out. I've done the same since I've never seen 100Hz+ on a monitor and would like to know the difference. If the speed impresses me but not the size, I'm returning both and going for the Acer x34p or one of LG's 34" 144Hz monitors coming out in the next couple of months.

Freesync is so-so for me. I'd rather have 100+Hz, but Ultrawides are just not stable at that point yet. I'd say at least another year or two before we get proper 100+Hz Ultrawides and GPUs that will actually support it since DP1.3/1.4 will be more "mainstream". By then, I'm hoping OLED becomes more affordable and will move on to that once decent Ultrawide OLEDs come to market. I've had AMOLED screens for my Samsung S2 and S5, but really wish to use them in a bigger form factor.

UM88 and UC88 do share many similarities, but the curved vs non-curved would be the most obvious point to a difference in panels.
