It appears that the 5:9 preview mode in OnScreen Control is not available on Mac OS. I do not see this documented anywhere - but the option is not displayed in the application. Is 5:9 preview supported on Mac OS? This is primary reason for the purchase...

Why do you hide the refresh rate?  It’s the number 1 feature gamers are looking for. And we always have to filter out the fake refresh rates. I’m assuming this panel is 60hz.

If i connect the usb c cable from the back of the monitors upstream port to the back of my asus motherboard will i be able to utilize the monitors usb hub with my other usb devices, or will the 60W Pwr end up frying all the ports on my asus motherboard?

Asked by: Jman1
No, this monitor only has 2 x USB 3.0 ports on it and both are downstream ports. It doesn't have any Upstream USB ports on it. The USB-C port will allow 4K video display, transfer data and charge laptops or mobile devices when they are connected to that port using the appropriate cable. The other two USB 3.0 downstream ports are a hub and they don't output 60W, only the USB-C port does. ^AC

A color mode conversion between Adobe RGB and sRGB is available on the "Color Mode" menu, but which is the coverage of the Adobe RGB colour space? More than the older 38uc99-w that covers 70%?

Asked by: Enzio
Regrettably, we do not have a listed percentage of what the coverage for the Adobe RGB color space is on the LG 38" Class 21:9 UltraWide® WQHD+ IPS Curved LED Monitor (37.5" Diagonal), Model # 38WK95C-W. AdobeRGB represents a wider range of colors and most experts say that it represents about 35% more color ranges than sRGB is able to. However, the world works with sRGB far more than it does with AdobeRGB. sRGB came first, and almost everything on a computer is built around sRGB. The internet, video games, applications, personal devices, and most everything else has adapted sRGB as their standard for color space. Most traditional computer monitors that can display about 97% of the sRGB color space will only about 76% of the AdobeRGB color space. A screen calibrator will often tell you how much of the color gamut you're able to display on the monitor...^IFV
