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. Blu-ray and Internet streaming movie services aren’t really set up to deliver 21:9 movies, so you need to rely on the scaling or stretching capability of either the display or the playback software.
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). However, LG, Dell and a few others ostensibly believe there’s a market for ultra-wides and I’ll admit -- I think they’re right.
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: 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. Indeed, it’s hard to go back to ordinary 16:9 monitors once you've become accustomed to its ultra-wide display.

Summary: The 2560 by 1080 pixel ultra-wide aspect ratio is great, but brings with it issues of compatibility with existing software and hardware. Some of the more advanced options can be tricky to set up. Read our LG 29EA93 review to find out more.
