Ultrawide under 300 recommendations

Hi!

 

I'm in a market for a ultrawide monitor, my budget is 300€. Currently I'm using an AOC G2460PF as my main Monitor. The new display would mostly be used for school work and gaming. I was already looking into LG 29um59, it is 165€ over here, but I would like to here your opinion about it, is the 29um69g really that much better? 

 

Thank you all!

Just a small tip when you go Ultrawide start at 34" don't get the 29" i looks to small.

 

I started with a LG 34um58-p but i don't know if its available in your country.

Pixel density for a 2560x1080 is where you start to draw limitations on size. IMO, 29” is the sweet spot for 1080 UW, it’s about the same pixel density as a 24” 1080p screen. 34” makes the pixels quite large and I’m not a fan. That size is much better suited for 3440x1440, and those are considerably more expensive. But this is all subjective

 

Ultrawide gaming on a budget is kind of a toss up. Some panels are good, but I wouldn’t bother getting a 2560x1080 panels unless it’s 144Hz and IPS, and those can easily be 3-400 euros. Just get one with good reviews. LG, Dell, maybe Acer and Asus.

I read somewhere that the 29um69g can be overclocked to 100hz, otherwise it is a out of the box 75hz Freesync monitor. That should be enough, don't you think so?

As long as you think so, yeah. I like high refresh rate monitors, some people don't. It's up to you how much you're willing to spend and what you want. If the monitor is a good size/resolution and refresh rate, then I'd just go for it. Freesync is just an added bonus
