Utterly love this monitor!
Gorgeous accurate SRGB colour which is great for serious work and equally sublime when booting up your favorite vidya! <3
9/10 keks approve.

Very happy with the monitor, only problem is if you run a NVidia card, you wont be able to get the advertised 75hz, even when overclocking it, when doing this frame skipping occurs, with AMD you can enable freesync which should solve the problem.
But other that this its a awesome monitor, transform the games I play (PUBG, racing games)

Great monitor and definitely the best Freesync model in its price range. Colour accuracy was almost perfect out of the box, just a small adjustment needed. The ultra wide screen is great for productivity and highly immersive for gaming.
A few things to note:
Freesync range is 48 - 75 Hz, and requires an AMD graphics card and Displayport cable (opposed to HDMI).
The 75 Hz refresh rate is also only available over Displayport.
AMD software has a global frame rate limiter to ensure it remains within the Freesync range (also saves power).
I can definitely recommend it.

Amazing monitor for work and play. If you're a developer or your work require similar screen real estate, then this is the monitor to get. I have both the 25 and 29 versions, and I can conclusively say the 29 is well worth the additional investment!

So far so good. Comes with HDMI cable rather than DisplayPort, and I'm realising how difficult it is to find a DP cable. Tested two games so far, BF1 and Grim Dawn, and both look incredible. Really enjoying the clarity, colour and extra real estate.

Bought this monitor for myself for Xmas (cause I've been a good boy all year) and I am very pleased with the quality. The initial setup was tricky with my iMac as the resolution was not displaying to full 2560X1080. I downloaded and bought a piece of software that got the screen working at full capacity - SwitchResX (R230.00).

Amazing monitor! The ultra wide aspect ratio should become the new standard because of the benefits in productivity, gaming, and movies. The screen is the best that I have looked at in terms of image quality, clarity, colour reproduction, and motion smoothness. An absolute must for gamers!

Probably the best value in this price bracket.
The ultra wide comes in quite handy with tons of room for many tabs on your browser and increases immersion in games substantially. The 21:9 wide aspect ratio does not work well on ALL games, but does so on most. Only AAA game that does not display properly that I've found so far is Overwatch.
Panel is good quality and the response rate is good enough even for FPS games.
Just note that if you use HDMI you will only get 60Hz. You need to use the display port and enable Freesync on the monitor settings before you can put it on 75Hz.
Works on both Nvidea and AMD graphics cards though.

I've had this monitor just over 2 weeks now and absolutely loving it, clear picture quality and no glare which was my biggest issue with my past screens. Whether I'm gaming online and need the quick response rate and black reproduction or multitasking and editing vidoe's this screen is an absolute beast.

Upgraded from the 25in LG wide format and am very happy. My gaming is way more engaging and I have freesync so no more tearing during action scenes. Lots of customisation options and after a few mins of playing around...it's perfect for my needs. Much better than 27 inch HD monitors which only offer 1900x1080...this one gives you 2560x1080 so you get better peripheral vision and better detail.

The monitor looks great with relatively thin bezels, except for the chin. It looks a lot larger when you're sitting in front of it than it does in pictures. Unfortunately there isn't a lot of video content that supports the 21:9 aspect ratio, so you will get black bars on the left and right when watching 16:9 video. Modern games have much better support.
The width is amazing for productivity. I hardly use maximized windows anymore as I can keep windows side-by-side with enough real estate. Excellent monitor at a great price.

This screen is fantastic. incredible clarity and brightness. the first one that was delivered to me was defective, (ether dead pixels or some dirt stuck behind the glass of the screen). But not to worry, I contacted Takealot and they immediately organised a replacement and came and collected it the next day without any hesitation. 10/10 service.

WHAT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. I HAVE DONE A LOT OF RESEARCH ON MONITORS AND GRAPHIC CARDS FOR THE PAST MONTHS. I USE MY COMPUTER DAILY AND ALSO LIKE TO PLAY GAMES.
I OPTED FOR IPS PANEL. THIS MONITOR IS 60HZ ,BUT CAN INCREASE TO 75HZ WITH DISPLAY PORT 1.2 BY WAY OF ADAPTIVE SYNC.
ALSO HAVE FREE-SYNC FOR AMD BUT WORKS WELL WITH NVIDIA AS WELL.
Reenen, South Africa. 9 March 2017
Ultra wide is amazing. You think it's amazing for games... but it's even better for work. Excel, emails, everything.
I have 2 complaints: 1st coming from me being bad at research. *THIS IS NOT A 144hz monitor!*. It is higher than 60 (75 to be exact).
2nd is just that the black is not very black (you can customize how black you want it).
I highly recommend the 29 above the 25 (the extra size is worth it absolutely!).
Iaian, South Africa. 17 February 2017
Fantastic monitor. Great image quality for photo editing. Also works well for gaming. Built in speakers are also a plus. The aux jack also means you can add external speakers if you need to.
Rudi, South Africa. 1 November 2017
depends what you use it for; my Dell 22 fhd is better g
for csgo, dota and pubg.
It looks nice but not the best for gaming, suggest rather getting a normal 24inch.
that being said, I do believe work such as music or videos should be great on this.
also just normal browsing is nice.

I struggled with LG Ultrawides at first because connecting to an iMac is different depending on whether you get the 25", the 29" or the 34". I first got the 25" inch and it only has HDMI ports in the back. These will not work with iMac . HDMI does not support 2560 by 1080 ( on imac anyway ) so the picture is stetched. However the 29" comes with a DisplayPort. This is good for Imac users. You can get a mini DisplayPort to regular DisplayPort from Likqage in Cape Town and you will have instant success. Full wide 2560 res.
The monitor itself is very nice. Its been a revolution for my work flow. I use a lot of music writing software as well as the adobe suite for artwork. Really loving all the real estate. Amazing.

Very happy with the overall product, display looks great and even the stand looks sleek. Probably one the best-priced screen in this size/quality/above 60 hz. The extra "horizontal" length is great for efficiency and working on it as 2 screens fit easily side by side, also have had no issues with gaming as most games work perfectly with the extra wide screen (e.g. CSGO/Dota/PUBG/Overwatch/BF4/BF1/Doom -just make sure you set ratio correctly - 16/9 (i think)
Using a Nvidia card I am still able to get 75hz without using "AMD Freesync" but it can only be achieved over a "Display port cable" which was expensive for a cable.
Lastly I am happy with the screen and quality of image displayed but my only downside and the reason why only 4/5 stars is because the "vertical" height of the screen is Smaller than a standard 27", had I known this initially(or done proper research) I may not have opted for this but that is my fault.
Tiaan, South Africa. 14 November 2017
Perfect size , amazing colors , good for gaming and fast delivery.
Bertus, South Africa. 12 July 2017
Excellent monitor. I was a bit worried about getting an ultrawide, but now there is no going back. It is amazing for both productivity and gaming. The IPS panel looks great and the colour accuracy was almost spot on out of the box; I just had to slightly adjust the calibration.
This is also one of the best Freesync monitors for the price. The range is 48 - 75 Hz, which is easily attainable on the ~1080p panel. Note that Freesync only works over displayport and you need to buy the cable separately, since there is only an HDMI cable included.
Overall, I can highly recommend it.
Malcolm, South Africa. 12 October 2017
Great monitor, minus one star because the controlling software doesn't have a Linux version.
Tumelo, South Africa. 28 August 2017
Excellent Screen can't Complain about anything, anything else is just nit-picking...
The Height is pretty much relative to the 24 Inch but ultra wide...
Pieter, South Africa. 27 November 2017
Brilliant image and sound
