This seems like a really good deal? How's the panel?
I've had one for a couple of years now.
I don't game much but I do lots of renders and photography edits (architecture student) and I find this monitor to be great for that (productivity wise & the colour is fairly accurate). I generally use the screen on my Dell XPS 15 when it comes to colour corrections.
Anyway. I'd highly recommend this monitor.
Very good deal. Some people say 1080 on a 29" is a bit pixelated though so be careful.
Not quite accurate. It's a 29" ultra wide which means it's the same height as a 16:9 24". Right in the sweet spot for 1080p.
Is this the same one that popped up last week for $21x.xx?
Yes. You'll save about $10 after shipping.
And I paid $320 for this one via Kogan 3 months ago, definitely a good deal now. It's a great monitor (99% sRGB colour accuracy) but it's smaller than I thought (29 inch stretched out, so it's more like having 1.5x a 24" monitor in the width.
Yes. Bought 2 for a new home office set up
What is it like having two together? Is it too much?
I fixed the Roman numerals for you.
damn it, I got mine at Mwave 2 days ago
I just got the 27in curved 144hz freesync 2560 x 1440
The extra resolution is really handy. Picture looks great.
Does this monitor comes with like “eye care” option? Like blue light filter function?
Just install f.lux
does that actually work? as in would the blue light filter on monitors work better?
It works the same.
The blue light filter on monitors just changes the color palette to give less blue.
f.lux does the same.
You can even use the Windows 10 setting
It has a blue light filter function built in.
You just use the joystick thingy under the monitor to turn it on.
is this just a wide 24" ?
Essentially. Pixel density remains relatively the same
Bit shorter actually - http://www.displaywars.com/24-inch-16x9-vs-29-inch-21x9
Currently using the 25" version of this and it is perfect. I have a small desk and definitely enough vertical real estate despite what other people say.
got offered free 30 days kogan first membership, saved $28.99 delivery. Plus take advantage of the Westpac CC $20 off $100 that expires in 2 days.
Hey didn't know about Westpac. I'll check now
BTW the Westpac offer is targeted - I have an Altitude Black card but am not eligible.
I went to the app, and go to reward offer and I see it there 20 off minimum 100.
Edit. Gave up and bought. As the above, applied code and free 30 trial Kogan first, paid $197 by cc including shipping and will get $20 back from Westpac. Straight away cancel the Kogan first.
@ChiMot: OzB fever strikes again!
@spillmill: Yeah another midnight shopping urge… Damn it ozb.
And feel like hit and run with this Kogan first thingie. Haha
$52 Shipping kills it for me :(. Looks like a decent price though.
have you already use your kogan first free 30 day membership? it will waive the delivery fee
Mine only $22 you must be living in Tasmania
Kangaroo Island. Most times shipping is reasonable but other times its insane. It's kinda hit and miss out here.
@haggertm: Maybe cheaper to move close to Sydney CBD. Lol. Ozb is long term commitment
@ChiMot: Both have their benefits and drawbacks. At this point in my life I would choose KI over Sydney any day of the week though. Even if it means I miss out on sweet, sweet monitor deals lol. I still get free delivery through Boozebud promos and club catch so I'm happy.
$22 to Tasmania.
It's just 60hz yea? Can't see it in specs
75Hz It's a bit hidden
I bought this monitor from the last deal for $240 plus delivery. Good monitor and the only gripe I have is that it doesn't have a DP input which is needed to enable Freesync for Nvidia cards.
This fine for general PC use? No gaming
Just music production mainly, using Cubase etc
I was thinking 2 of these side by side or something like this and 2 22-24" on the side
It is absolutely perfect for general use and improving productivity.
Its basically like having two monitors as it is.
I've had mine for almost 2 years now (I think) but I'm tempted to buy another now and make an ultra Ultra wide set-up for my desk.
I think too wide if you put two side by side, maybe put one on top each other is better?
Thanks OP. I ordered @ $177.10=$197.10 - $20 (Westpac cash back).
Nicely done. Cancelled my westpac card last week to dodge the annual fee.
Lukcy me, I had a card without annual fees.
How does this monitor hold up for PC gaming?
I have a different LG, but same res and 75hz. 21:9 has become my preference for gaming. At the price, quality option.
Kogan is getting sued over this TAXTIME hack.
Have had this monitor for 2+years, highly recommend. My only regret is not buying the the next size up ultrawide, i think 34" (as a previous poster said) 29" ultrawide is same height as 24" normal.
Does it seem too narrow for a wide monitor?
I got this monitor in the last deal from Kogan, was something like 219 + 30 postage so came to $249 for me.
One thing to note: It comes with a power saving feature ON by default and if you're playing games and move into dark areas the screen will go so dark you can barely see anything, and auto-adjust the blacks up and down until it thinks it's right. I thought it would be a blackness setting or another DCP (auto black adjustment) but it ended up being the power saving setting that was causing it to make my games constantly switch the darkness up and down ~ it looked really weird and made whatever you were trying to see in the shadows impossible to see.
Cheap, but some points to consider: This monitor is not 8bit, it's 6bit + FRC, meaning you will get some banding in gradients. I owned the previous version, (LG 29UM58-P) which was basically the same minus freesync. If you do any sort of Photoshop or illustration work, or care about smooth gradients and tones, then avoid this monitor. Treat yourself to a genuine 8bit panel which can render a smooth gradient.
Also 75hz is a bit meh at this size. When scrolling web pages, or playing games, 100+hz starts paying for itself.
I would also not recommend 1080 resolution on a 21:9 display if you do any sort of productivity. I feel it's not enough room and vertically cramped. Great for widescreen movies though, and okay for games…. although depending on the game, you may want more vertical resolution.
Pixel pitch is also too low. The screen size is about 29cm high, so that's quite a lot of distance for 1080 pixels to cover. More subjective, and personal preference… but IMHO 27cm in height is the most you want to go with a 1080p monitor before dot pitch is compromised. Depends how close you sit, and how much you care!
Monitor arrives this morning. Setting it up now.
Do I really need to install the software? Driver I can understand but software…. hmmm
ok i get it the software is to adjust the split screen.
also, i was confused about sound not coming out, apparently there is no internal speaker we need to plug in speaker via that jack at the back. dohh!!!
Confirm and confirm, the next model up had built in speakers..
