Yet another monitor comparison thread. Looking to go flat UltraWide and the best seems to come from LG..

I have the choice of the 29UM58 ot 29UM69G. Which is better and why?

The Um69 has freesync and the Um58 doesnt

Thats it
Well.... I'm a Nvidia user and have no plans to change over to AMD ever.

My main question is the panel on the UM58 different from the one on the UM69G? Both of them support 75hz Refresh rate but the UM69G does Freesync.

I think the other guys point was that one supports freesync and the other doesn't and thats the only real difference between the two. It really looks like they used the same panel in both monitors.

I think both of them are pretty crappy panels. Both use 6 bit color panels plus frc. Most cheap panels are at least 8 bit.

You would honestly be better off with a higher quality 1440p panel or saving up for a 3440x1440p monitor.

Well there used to be a time where most "8 Bit panels" were actually 6 Bit with FRC / Dithering.

Those two are literally the only ones available locally, and I can't run 1440p Ultrawide at decent enough graphical settings on my 1060.

If you know you wont have an amd card soon get the UM58 and save a bit of cash
I bet the panel is exactly the same and maybe the um69 has more inputs as the um58 only has 2xhdmi

If youre from the Philippines, check out tipidpc.com

Where did you read it is stated as a 6bit panel?

Panels are not the same apparently. 29UM69G / UM69G is a Native 75hz Panel at full res confirmed by the manual and by discussions. ( Without FreeSync )

I already know about TPC.. heh... It's my main marketplace.

http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-29UM69G-B-ultrawide-monitor "6bit+A-FRC, 16.7M colors"

http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-29UM58-P-ultrawide-monitor "8bits (6bit+FRC), 16.7M"

So not a native 8 Bit display.

Thanks, my regional LG site only indicates 16.7M colors
