Happy but worried about speakers.

Emily C., Newegg
25 June 2013
  • Summary: I still recommend this monitor aside from the speaker issues.
  • Pros: I love this monitor. It's crisp and clear and I don't regret buying it just for display only.
  • Cons: I'm having a loud hissing and popping sounds every time I turn the monitor on or when it comes on after sleep mode. I'm forced to turn the monitor off and then right back on and then the noises will go away. I'm worried that after so much time of this occurring I will not have working speakers.

Beautiful Monitor

Karl L., Newegg
5 June 2013
  • Pros: Such a beautiful screen! Beautiful colors, and small bezel. 21:9 ratio is absolutely amazing for those games that are compatible with it. Guild Wars 2 and other games that are compatible is an eye turner. I have watched a couple movies in a 21:9 ratio and in a theatre mode resolution, and with th...
  • Cons: Sexy stand yes, adjustable no. What bugged me the most, and maybe its me. I like utilizing the split screen program but the problem is when running a steam game or run a game in full screen mode while it is on, I have experienced the game auto minimizing and the program setting the monitor to spl...

Really good monitor

Niclas., Amazon
2 June 2013
  • Summary: I was a lucky one to get the latest rev 0.2 version I think only available in south korea now..cause that is where it was shipped from south korea. IT the model name was said to be 29EA93V, but on the back on my monitor it said 29EA93-P, rev 02. so I am glad I got the latest revision and firmware.

Overall happy

Ed H., Newegg
15 May 2013
  • Summary: My configuration for Mass Effect 3 (multiplayer): I'm on Windows 8 and use Widescreen Fixer with one of these monitors. Under settings, uncheck "Automatically Detect Resolution". Change Display Count to 3. Uncorrected Resolution to 5760 x 1080. Bezel-Corrected Resolution to 2560 x 1080.
  • Pros: Nice even color in all ranges. Good response time and no issues with games. Extremely bright. Has a standard VESA mount. Amazing for watching movies. Has lots of connections on the back, and comes with cables for each. You can also turn off the power LED and the on/off sound effect in the monitor...
  • Cons: As some other reviewers noted, sometimes the power button stops responding, which is somewhat disconcerting. I rarely use it though; the monitor is always on or in sleep mode. I'm making note of that LG customer service number just in case. One stuck pixel about 2" from the corner. I can't see it...

Awesome monitor, kinda

Jake B., Newegg
8 May 2013
  • Pros: 2560x1080, loved it.
  • Cons: Some games don't run at 21:9, which isn't a problem. But some games have a tendency to not run at all. So you have to go change the resolution to go to windowed mode, then back, etc. Also, light bleeding in lower left corner. Don't know if it's worth getting refund and replacing it or just leavin...

Issues with touch activated buttons

Roger Z., Newegg
4 May 2013
  • Pros: Beautiful screen, 2560x1080 resolution.
  • Cons: Touch activated buttons sometimes stop working and you have to wait a bit before they will start reacting to your touch again. The VESA mount in the back is angled so when I mounted it on my desk arm, the screen is tilted at a slight angle upwards.

Very Nice Monitor

Anonymous, Newegg
26 April 2013
  • Pros: Can feel the quality in the monitor. Has hookups for Cell Phone HDMI which also charges the phone plus 3 USB 3.0 hubs that come from a 3.0 connection to your computer. Be aware... the HDMI cable provided for the cell phone is not mini-HDMI at the phone end which is a problem for Motorola phones. ...
  • Cons: 4 eggs instead of 5 was not a flawless hookup. I cannot get the software provided for Split Screen and True Color Optimizer to work, Running Windows 7 64 bit and I have verified the USB connection from the monitor to the PC is connected. And get this... At the LG site, this monitor is not listed ...

Nice Monitor

Brett F., Newegg
25 April 2013
  • Summary: I used to have 3 22" Acer in an eyefinity setup, which was nice, but got tired of bezel hell..... I really don't game anymore so I didn't really test for response times etc.. (maybe I'll throw in BF4 this weekend and see, or maybe something from DCS Combat series) I didn't even bother with the sound...
  • Pros: Widescreen is very nice. Play back of video and day to day operations is very good. I'm quite pleased with it's performance. Look quite good with stand and unit is stable. For what I do with my PC nowadays, it's quite nice and is exactly what I'm looking for. Now if they ever make one a 5760 x 10...
  • Cons: No height adjustment. Going to wall mount it.... No side USB ports, which makes quick access for USB devices moot. I guess I could let a cord dangle from the back, but that would look bad...

Great For Gaming

Alexander D., Newegg
23 April 2013
  • Summary: I am playing with a 24' monitor now until the replacement arrives....a 24 inch monitor is really "SMALL" compared with the ultra wides screen. I had one dead white pixel that was in the middle bottom...it was really not noticeable at all..the light bleed is the issue here..LG please FIX this.
  • Pros: Good with Games....Crysis 2, FC1, FC2, FC3, all look great with 2560 x 1080. Skyrim has issues with 2560 x 1080 ..missing lower part of screen where some info is needed in the game...will work in 1920 x 1080 ok.I saw no ghosting etc. Its bright, adjustable, the buttons on the bottom right edge ar...
  • Cons: Really bad light bleeding on the left side lower corner to mid - height...seen visable when you have a BLACK windows background or desktop. Not acceptable for a $600+ monitor. I have RMS this one and hope to get a good replacement. This is the only thing that is hurting this monitor.

Love this LCD

Greg S., Newegg
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Rev 1.0 manufactured date Feb Also you can adjust response time in the monitors option menu, high, medium, low. I have mine set to low and see zero ghosting at all.
  • Pros: Bioshock Infinite & Tomb Raider looks amazing at 2560x1080. Full emersion in games. I noticed some games look a tad funky at this resolution, wasn't digging Far Cry 3, however Crysis 3 looks amazing and Borderlands 2 looks fantastic too. Colors seems very accurate, or more accurate then any monit...
  • Cons: Notice light bleed in bottom left corner. Pretty uniform other then that. The light bleed bothers me when I game with the lights off at night, but if I use my bias behind monitor lighting its not as noticeable or if I use my desk lamp. Also I have the brightness set to 100, and it's easy on the e...
