2 Reasons For
2x Faster Response Time
The LG 29UM69G-B is a 5ms response time PC monitor. That's 9ms faster than the LG 29UM68 (14ms).

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.
