LG Releases 34WP550-B Monitor: 34" IPS, 2560 x 1080, 21:9, 5 ms, 75 Hz, FreeSync

LG today announced a new addition to its productivity/entertainment-geared monitor lineup. The 34WP550-B monitor seems to be a pretty standard affair for any user that only casually games and isn't looking for the best refresh rates, but wants a solid, ultra-wide monitor to work and consume content in. The 34" diagonal presents images in 21:9 aspect ratio across an IPS-enabled 2560 x 1080 resolution. The refresh rate settles at a pretty standard 75 Hz, albeit with the support of FreeSync - hence the eventual casual gaming scenario for this monitor. The 5 ms response time is nothing to write home about either, but again - this isn't geared for gaming, and is more than sufficient for spreadsheet-processing.

Brightness is quoted at 250cd / ㎡ with a 1,000: 1 contrast ratio, 95% RGB coverage, and typical IPS viewing angles of 178º. I/O is assured by 2x HDMI in and 1x earphone. The LG 34WP550-B is expected to be available for $299/€299 - if you're looking for something to game on, you'd be much better served looking elsewhere, though this is a very nice aspect ratio.

Nearly 2 years since 34UM69-G and no improvement been made? Basically just another rebadge eh?

The century of: "if it's not for PC gaming, it doesn't need high refresh rate" (phones are a different story)

It's positioned as a replacement for business dual monitor set up and for $299, it's pretty solid

75Hz as a new baseline is purely a good thing though, regardless of the use case. Even scrolling through web pages and text documents is noticeably smoother.

The sync is free but are we?

I would take a 60Hz non-PWM over 120Hz PWM display any day.

once you scroll on a 390hz monitor from Acer, there is no going back. 144hz looks blurry after 390hz.

I have my monitor refresh rate set to ludicrous speed

You must either have had some very poor pwm displays or be very sensitive to flicker. Even above 1kHz pwm should be unnoticeable, but of course going to 2k or even 10k isn't particularly difficult - and at 10k no human will ever be able to notice flicker...

Pretty sure diminishing returns kick in at some point there :p

Yep. It's a curse as much it's a gift.

I agree that it makes a noticeable difference at that end of the spectrum, but at the same time most 60Hz displays can end up doing 75Hz anyway. What we really need more of is displays pushing for a 90Hz to 96Hz baseline standard that would be a more pronounced difference.
