Excerpt: 2013 will be known as the year when PC monitors finally started moving beyond Full HD resolution. Last year we tested a large number of WQHD monitors with 2560x1440 pixels, and today we will examine nine screens with a resolution of 2560x1080.
Conclusion: The LG 29EA93 measures fairly well post calibration, so LG did a reasonably good job on the electronics side. However, while a 21:9 aspect ratio offering 2560 x 1080 resolution sounds like an exciting concept, it’s really a solution in search of a problem.
Pros: Good overall image quality, Detailed controls, Screen Split is handy utility
Cons: 21:9 aspect ratio doesn’t play well with games and some movies, Color accuracy out of the box is poor, Controls are a nuisance to navigate, No height adjustment available
Excerpt: The Flatron 29EA93-P is LG’s first entry into the still nascent category of ultra-wide consumer displays. There remain few options to compete against the 29EA93’s expansive 21:9 aspect ratio (16:9 is typical).
Conclusion: Anyone that read my initial review knows I was disappointed with the performance of the LG 29EA93. I’m a big fan of the aspect ratio, but I wasn’t a fan of the performance numbers that I saw from it.
Excerpt: At the IFA fair in September 2012 LG announced a monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio. This imposing 29-inch screen reached our doorstep recently, and we put it though the usual series of tests. So what's the point of such a wide screen?
Conclusion: When the 29EA93 was announced, I was drawn to it because of the 21:9 ratio and my preference for the wider film format. I was worried about how it would work with my everyday material compared to a 27” or even 24” monitor.
Excerpt: Ultra-wide 29in monitors are fast becoming the must-have displays of the moment, and the LG 29EA93 is the latest. At first, the 29EA93’s 2,560x1,080 resolution and 21:9 aspect ratio seems strange, but you quickly get used to it.
