Kinda confused why they keep bringing this back.
Boy i really wish it was at least 1440p. 1080p at that size is not really worth it

21:9 monitors at 3440x1440 under 34" don't exist, and 24" 16:9 monitors at 1440p are still very expensive, so I doubt manufacturers will be making 29" 21:9's at 1440p any time soon, if at all.
I had the same reservations before buying coming from a 24" at 1920x1200, but it's a very similar pixel density to a 16:9 1920x1080 at 24" and a great entry into 21:9 for the price.
What you don't want is a 2560x1080 at 34"
1080p?

Is this monitor very good for normal stuff like programming and watching movies?
Sushan
Yeah it's 21:9 ultrawide, it's gonna have a lot more screenspace than a 16:9 monitor. And for movies, you'd want the movie to be in 21:9 format, which is the aspect ratio used in theatres.
old unimpressive monitor only reason to buy would be if it was cheap. I wouldn't call this drop cheap. This was on buydig months ago for $165 free shipping at that time I thought it was kind of worth it.
A GSYNC monitor on massdrop yes!
29" wide... Only 1080p.. Only 75hz..
..oh :(
chillchill
The monitor isn't even G-SYNC it's free sync 😂
Gaddywampus
I thought the U59 was not even free sync. I think your thinking of the newer $229.99 LG 29UM60 model that is freesync.
Can you ship to uk
I just purchased two of these monitors and the computer desk that has a drop going on right now - the "Sit / Stand desk".
Really looking forward to having the ability to have different programs running in different areas of the monitors. This is going to be so fantastic, I can hardly stand it!
THANKS, MASSDROP!!! Brenda

They have arrived. I have them hooked up to the fastest desktop I own. Waiting for the Sit / Stand desk... this is SO cool!!

I own a super similar model, I game with it, important you download Flawless Widescreen to support games which are not natively 21:9 or have proper support. Running with a 1070Ti everything looks beautiful in it. Very affordable and great option. Looks better than most monitors in terms of eye candy. Day to day tasks are also great. Highly recommend this at normal price and especially when its up for just $200 bucks.
No overseas shipping? :<
kkfreak
You don't want it anyway. bad deal.
Sosad that this doesn't ship to Australia lolz
So close. I have the 29UM68. Would've snatched up another one in a heartbeat.
I've been using this screen for a couple years now, haven't had any problems with it, love the ultrawide ratio, it matches the 21:9 of a lot of movies so there's no black bars, pretty cool.
Pretty slim bezel too. I agree with another commend that the stand it comes with is rubbish and have it VESA mounted to an arm+table clamp. I'm getting a second one to double them up, good deal for 2560 x 2160 workstation!
is this windows 7 compatible

Ohhhh yassssssss
I sent you a PM on Facebook to make sure you got taken care of...
Great deal for the average user. Not so much for gamers or anybody else who need fast response times, etc.
This is an amazing Deal ! But unfortunately I live in Bangladesh :(
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824025038 this model (a different one) has $20 off with code EMCXPEPY3 and $20 rebate

Yeah, been looking into it. It will be a stupid price HAHA. Time to sell your dog.
Philosophic7567
yea along with nvidia BFGD, time to check how much one of my kidney's worth
So am I to understand that they took the same number of pixels, 1920x1080 and stretched it out over a wide aspect ratio? While vertically it'll be more than fine, but horizontally it just seems like a bad idea.
Snakeyes
The specs on this listing are done poorly. According to LG, this model number is 2560 x 1080
sietai
I should have actually realized that being a WFHD. But I do agree that those numbers should be included. Thanks for the response.
Are there any chances this drop will come back in the future? Really good drop, hate to miss out
Vehkiya
If you miss this drop, no worries. You can always find deals for older tech monitors just about anywhere. I am sure you can find this again or something similar, perhaps even better for about the same price or +/-.
I bought this monitor for Black Friday to have a setup at the gfs house, Great monitor, although I would recommend buying a different monitor stand (VESA Mounted) because the one it comes with is horrible. I game with it all the time playing Overwatch at high settings. My primary setup at my house is an LG 144hz 24" monitor. But for this LG being a 75hz it still runs great and looks sharp. Recommend it to anyone looking for a gaming monitor.
No DP? That's weird...

The only part I really read was the 29" IPS part, and thought this was a 2560x1080 monitor, not a full on 1080p. Either ways with IPS panel this monitor isn't that old, just cheap since they gutted the input to just one HDMI to bring the cost down.
CasualSin
Just to clarify when I say "Old", I don't really mean actual old but old as in the tech old term which means it fairly is not but that tech is constantly replacing one another within 6 months - 1 year(sometimes slightly more). Although, IPS panels have been quite around for some time now, they keeping making "creative" ways to bring down the costs.
I see a lot of people commenting about this "Freesync." I have an Nvidia GTX 760; will I be missing out on the refresh rate? Will it matter?
Saltedfish
I mean, not really. Freesync just adjusts the refresh rate to the FPS output from the card to alleviate screen tearing. You actually should just be able to run Vsync at 75 hz to take care of that, though.
Saltedfish
Freesync stops screen tearing when you have an AMD card. Nvedia has something similar it's called gsync but good luck finding a monitor with that. If all your worried about is refresh rate no you won't be missing out
the only 1 hdmi port is a deal breaker
RickC322
The one on sale at Newegg (Posted above) has 2 HDMI, 1 Display port and 1 DVI.
Are those holes for VESA?
palozon
Yes, 75 x 75. I have added that to the specs.
I bought this monitor last week in a brick and mortar store for 190€. But mine has 2 hdmi ports. Loving it so far and you can use the 75hz even if you have a Nvidia card
Duarteapb
i wasn't able to overlcock to 75hz, how did you do it? i have a MSI GAMING X GTX 1080. and it wouldn't even go to 61 hz
wiggypop
You have to go to the monitor menu and there you have to enable freesync. Then just go to the Nvidia application to check if it changed to 75. Mine was automatic this part. Let me know if it not clear, not on the pc right now
I have this monitor already and quite happy with it. No issues so far, but ive only had it since August. I believe I have last years model as there is no A in my model number. It appears to have the same specs, design and price point. I bought it at retail.
It indeed has Freesync up to 75hz max (with a compatible AMD GPU) I run a RX480 8GB in my setup. Im a casual gamer, so this monitor suits me fine. I have been playing Doom on Ultra and its pretty smooth at 75hz. Ive never played it at 144hz so I dont know any better.
The screen splitting software allows for many options for viewing and utilizing the extra space, it works well enough and I use it often when browsing or working.
Really this monitor is for someone who: a. is on a budget (although the massdrop made ultrawide was a bangup deal for its size and specs, but still over $500) b. wants the ultrawide setup c. wants the freesync capability and has an AMD card
If youre hardcore into competitive gaming, and care about the FPS then get a 1ms zowie at 144hz for less.
No International shipping? bummer... I really want one... maybe even 2!
Accelerator
It doesn't even ship to Canada :(
Um... whats the resolution? Why is that not in the specs?

I know but why its not on the page is what bothers me.
Bought this from microcenter about a year ago. No issues on my end. Pretty solid monitor imo but i wanted a qhd version of it.
Qzanium
QHD on a 29 inch ultrawide is unnecessary you only really need QHD when you get to 34”
