Product Overview

LG 29WL500 UltraWide is the speaker-less variant of the 29WL50S. It is a 29-inch ultra-wide IPS monitor with all the essential features that one could wish for for general computing, though it is not breaking any records by any stretch of the imagination.
Compared to the 29WL50S, the 29WL500 trades built-in stereo speakers for a slightly lower price point, which makes sense so long as you have your speaker needs addressed by other means. It is otherwise identical to the 29WL50S, though these models are not usually sold alongside each other in a particular region: The LG God decides which one you get to buy.
In other aspects, the 29WL500 satisfies owners with close to full coverage of the sRGB color space, FreeSync support, and HDR 10 support.
Its sister model is the 34WL500, which carries all the same pros and cons to the next size up. Since its release in 2019, the 29WL50S has been replaced by more recent models with incremental improvements, though if its specs satisfy your needs its discounted price may warrant a second look.
