Is £10 more on AO.com and eBuyer. I have this and it's great as a gaming monitor or as a PC monitor. Has two HDMI ports too.

75Hz refresh rate for those wondering.


Hmm are you sure? Alot of people on the page have commented it as 60Hz and I can't find any information on the specs?

I've got the 34" version and can confirm it is 75hz

I would imagine the 34" version also has a DP port which the 25" does NOT have.
I currently have the 25" and cannot figure out how to do 75Hz . Stuck on 60Hz and also if anyone plans to use it with a SP4 be aware it does not use native resolution on this monitor.
Don't understand why they couldn't stick in a DP port as apparently that solves all the issues.

What's SP4?

You have to enable freesync to get 75hz working, but you are indeed correct, I am connected by DP

That would be an incorrectly spelt PS4.
The monitor normally operates at 60Hz but if you have an amd card then you can have freesync which boosts it to 75hz. However if this is similar to the 29 inch version then can overclock the panel to 75hz using nvidia control panel (as the panel is capable of this) and so you get 75hz for nvidia cards as well. To do that there are guides online but simple and safe (as long as dont go over 75hz, I am not responsible for you damaging your monitor if you do it incorrectly)
I would highly recommend avoiding the 25" version (which has the same vertical height as a regular 20" 16:9 monitor) and instead saving to get the 29" or 34"/35" models. The 29" panel has a vertical height similar to a 23" monitor, which is the right size for this resolution too.

"Oh no the hz they hurts please stop." You aren't going to damage a monitor.
I'm currently using a 5 year old 22" LG IPS monitor with an xbox one, but I'm thinking about upgrading to the one X, would this be any good to use on the one X? Or any advice would be much appreciated, I don't want anything bigger than 24"and my budget is £160 or £180 at a push. Thanks.

I dont think the xbox one supports an ultrawide resolution, so you would likely just get a 1080p image when the xbox could output a 4k one, id say you are better with what you have and save up for a 4k, though im not sure you would get one as small as 24" or if you would notice the resolution bump at that size

Thanks for the advice.
I'd like to keep it at 24" because it's going to be on a desk and 24" seems to be the sweet spot when sitting close.
Good monitor. I paid £129 for it though from amazon
I have recently purchased a 29" model. Bloody love the thing!
I know alot of people have plenty to moan on these - yes they are a little on the expensive side but they're worth it in my opinion.
The only fall to these is I'd say you'd be better looking on places like ebay you can net a perfect conditioned 29" one from around £140-£180 if you're patient enough. I waited around a month and saw a few go by until I had the money aside to purchase one of these guilt free lol.
All LG's ultrawides are freesync enabled so you can clock them up to 75hz I use mine currently as a 2nd screen for a laptop or use with a PS4.
I am soooo tempted to buy this...however...I just don't need it.

Stay away due to the height?

Stay away due to the height?


Yes. It was fairly simply explained there - let me try again.

Think of the 25" ultrawide (21:9) as a 19"-20" regular widescreen (16:9)
Think of the 29" ultrawide (21:9) as a 23" regular widecsreen (16:9)
Think of the 34" ultrawide (21:9) as a 27" regular widescreen (16:9)

A 19" monitor is too small IMO. ~23" is the perfect size for 1920x1080, ergo, 29" is the perfect size for 2560x1080.

Same vertical height (or vertical dimension of the screen), just wider.
