Big diagonal, few pixels: ideal for racing games?

LG 34UM68-P

The second-last LG model in this test is also the cheapest monitor. The average price of the 34UM68-P is about 357 pounds / 400 euros and you can easily find it for less. As with the 34UB67-B it is not curved, but it does have an IPS-panel. This panel is placed on base that is not adjustable in height, but in contrast with the other affordable model of this brand it does have FreeSync, albeit with a modest range of 40 to 60 Hz. It has two hdmi-inputs and displayport, but no usb hub. However, it does have built-in speakers.

The response times of this monitor are clearly not as good as the other LG models and with that it is the second slowest in this test. However, there is no input lag and the monitor is fast enough for casual gamers. A low power consumption is positive, but the colour quality is lacking. The colour temperature is clearly too high, which results in a cold image. Colour- and grayscale deviation are clearly on the high side of the spectrum. The contrast is also disappointing, thanks to the maximum brightness that disappoints at slightly more than 210 cd/m² and a black value that is not great. All in all we clearly prefer the 34UB67, especially because it only costs a bit more. For gaming the comparably priced 34UM69G-B might even be more interesting.
