What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lg widescreen monitor 10 months ago This LG wide-screen monitor is perfect for multiple window applications running on a PC. I have found it to be much more convenient than having 2 monitors, both for saving of desk space and having all windows readily accessible. The monitor is has good connectivity, excellent value and I would strongly recommend it for desk-top use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the best monitor for a Mac The monitor is great with good color, but not the best one for a Mac. I had to try three different dongles before I found one that worked properly. There is no way to control the speaker levels in the monitor from the Mac. Sometimes when the Mac is asleep and wakes up the monitor doesn't wake up. I have to uplug and then plug in the dongle to wake up the monitor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent contrast and sharpness The ultra wide format is ideal for working on multiple documents without the need for dual monitors. Great sharpness for a FHD monitor and good selection interfaces.

Please consider the dilemma here. LG customer service provided a list of authorized distributors. I checked the inventory for everyone of them. Nobody has this monitor. If I can twist somebody’s arm to order this for me, I/they need to know its available.

Regrettably, we do not sell the monitor directly and it is sold through our retail partners. Inventory for the monitor is proprietary information that only the retailers can give you and you would need to contact them to inquire if they are expecting further deliveries for the monitor and what the estimated time for delivery might be.

I’ve searched high & low, checking all of the authorized LG retailers. Nobody has the 29UM68-P in stock.  Is this still available from LG?  It shows up on your website, but that doesn’t mean it is in stock. If you have it In stock, how can I purchase one?

How do I get "PBP" to appear on my monitor menu? Also, can I run my PC using DisplayPort and a PlayStation / Switch or similar on HDMI as the second input for PBP? Or does this function only work for PC / MAC?

Asked by: mtreanor1
To activate PBP (Picture-by-Picture) mode on the LG 34'' Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS LED Monitor (34'' Diagonal), Model # 34UM68-P you have to press the joystick button at the bottom of the monitor to enter the menu then navigate to PBP by moving the joystick. In the menu, you can assign the main screen and a sub-screen. If you assign HDMI 1 as the main screen, then you can select HDMI2 or DisplayPort as the sub-screen. If you select HDMI 2 as the main screen, then you can assign either HDMI 1 or DisplayPort as the sub-screen and similarly if you assign DisplayPort as the main screen, then you can assign either HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 as the sub-screen. Sound out has a Main and Sub setting that allows you to select the input for main or for sub and the Swap allows you to toggle between the main screen and the sub-screen in PBP mode...^IFV

How do I split between two different inputs (DisplayPort & HDMI)?

Asked by: mtreanor1
There is no need to split between two different inputs on the LG 34'' Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS LED Monitor (34'' Diagonal), Model # 34UM68-P. It has 2 x HDMI 1.4 ports and a DisplayPort 1.2 port. The monitor supports Picture-by-Picture (PBP) which is a function that splits the screen in two so you can view two external input sources simultaneously. When you assign HDMI 1 as the main screen, you can select either HDMI 2 or the DisplayPort as your sub screen. When you assign HDMI 2 as your main screen, you can assign HDMI 1 or the Displayport as your sub screen and similarly, when you select DisplayPort as your main screen, you can assign either HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 as your sub scree. The Swap allows you to toggle between the main and sub screen in PBP mode. Sound Out Main lets you select the audio for the main screen and Sub lets you select the audio for the sub screen...^IFV

Looking for a new or refurbished LG 29UM68. Any recommendations on where a unit can be found or what the current equivalent would be?  I have two of the old and need a third. Would like them all to match so that you can’t see any differences.  Thanks.

how do I enable 75hz. I only have 60hz as a refresh rate

Asked by: dahackster
You can use this monitor in 75Hz using DP only. I´ve used this monitor with hdmi at 60Hz tops and 75 (74.9)Hz with DP, sometimes with old drivers you should do a manual set up to get this refresh time, with recent drivers this options are available for you to choose. ( BTW I have a GPU of the green house, I can tell how it works with a red house ones).
