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: For movies, the LG Flatron 29EA93 is superb. Films released in an ultra-wide format (i.e. many recent movies) fill the entire 29-inches of glorious screen real estate. As previously mentioned, the display’s advantageous width, rich color, excellent contrast and brightness, great viewing angles and deep blacks make it a pleasure to use for popcorn-worthy flicks.
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. Well, it seems that LG wasn’t a fan either and went back to fix it, returning with a display that puts out some of the best numbers that I have ever seen.
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. Would the ratio be a one-trick pony, or would it provide a better way to watch movies as well as a good environment for getting work done? First thing, the LG 29EA93 performs incredibly well in our testing.

Excerpt: When widescreen simply isn’t wide enough, LG’s 29EA93 stretches the definition still further by offering a 29in display with a 21:9 aspect ratio. It features 2560 pixels across, and 1080 pixels down within a high-quality in-plane switching (IPS) panel, along with built-in three-port USB 3.0 hub and support for hardware calibration.
