So based on all of the above, and after much consideration of alternatives, I chose the LG 29UC88-B for 329.00. At the time of purchase 12/2016, it was the only curved 29" 1080p 21:9 monitor available that hit these marks: . LG 34UC88 34 inch Curved Ultrawide Height Adjustable IPS Monitor (3440 x 1440, 2x HDMI, DisplayPort, 300 cd/m2, 5 ms, AMD Freesync) Black by LG Electronics £587.56. Product information: 29UC88 29" 2560x1080 IPS FREESYNC Gaming Super-Wide Widescreen LED Monitor - Black Perfect for multitasking and entertaining, the LG 21:9 UltraWide™ is always the correct choice.. LG's 2016 monitors end with 8. So 34uc98/34uc88 or 29um68 compared to 34uc97/34uc87 or 29um67 which are 2015 models. The difference between the 90 series and the 80 series is thunderbolt ports on the 90 series for mac users. A big difference between the 2015 and the 2016 panels is the lack of back light bleeding people have posted on their reviews which means you don't have to play the lottery.. . .
