Hello, recently bought this ultrawide monitor, replacing my Benq V2320H 2ms GTG (23inch and almost 10 years old) https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-29UM69G-B-ultrawide-monitor
My monitor can allow either Motion Blur with 1ms or Freesync with 5ms and I don't know which to pick. I'm guessing everyone would recommend Freesync but I would've really liked some technical data or tests to understand which exactly is the difference if there's any.
I mean, clearly the response time, but opinions say that you don't even notice 5ms, especially if it's Freesync. But then again 1ms Motion Blur Reduction is also new to me and don't know how efficient it is. Please help if you have experience with something similar.
Thanks!

So if you use the game adjust setting, to darken things, use the Anti motion blur. If you are using Freesync you can not use the anti motion blur/ game adjust setting. Freesync is for an AMD gpu, or if you have a Nvidia gpu see if it the monitor is Gsync compatible. You are better off using the Freesync, Gsync setting for gaming. I would use the anti motion blur for videos, fast action movies etc.

Was pretty sure it was the better option, but wanted to get another opinion. I'm more worried about the 1ms vs 5ms response time. Freesync is supported because I have a GTx 1660 and have G-sync enabled right now

Unless you are gaming for thousands of dollars, 5ms is no big deal for gaming. And I challenge anybody to pick out the monitor that hast 1 ms, 2ms, 3ms, 4ms and 5ms and be right .
