Wide screen makes me more productive

Danny40, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews

  • Summary: I love this wide screen monitor, no more swapping between programs to see information between the two. Now I can place programs (i.e. Browser and Quicken) side by side and get what I need. Sure I can extend my laptop display to the monitor, which I still do, yet the laptop screen is small leaving me squinting at it. I’d rather be able to put the 2 programs side by side on a monitor, which this product allows me to do! Graphics, video streaming, and resolution are great.

Replacement buy

RC, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
1 August 2014
  • Summary: Was looking at new monitors to replace a 24 inch 1080p one that I had. Came across this and picked it up along with upgrading my video card from a Nvidia 670GTX to a 770GTX. Couldn't be happier. I use it for gaming BF4 but also some work related, and while having my DirecTV plugged into HDMI and computer plugged in thru the Display Port.

Incredible!

  • Summary: The resolution, clarity and speed of this monitor is exactly what I expected from this monitor. Love the fact that ambient light doesn't glare the surface. The menu control took a bit to get used to using the four-way button but that's a minor issue. Judging from the reviews giving it low marks, some seem not aware of the limitations of their hardware. Works perfectly with the new MacPro as it supports the monitor's maximum resolution.

  • Summary: My life is all about technology. I do my best to look for ways to take it to the extreme and push it to the next level. My work therefore becomes an important part of my life. Recently I added this product to my list of tools that help me push technology to its limits and with the Screen Splitter functionality.

Good monitor, but could be better

  • Summary: I am using it as the second monitor of my notebook LG with Windows 8.1. Unfortunately the colors on the notebook's screen are much more beautiful than the 29UM65 monitor...

  • Summary: Nice monitor for the price. Annoying setting error message when monitor is not fed 2560X1080. Monitor seems to work best at 1920X1080 and CPU selects 1920 when "best for monitor" selected. At the higher resolution, text is unreadable. looking for settings. Going to call NCIXUS and Apple after the holiday for help.
  • Pros: Nice picture. Wi-i-ide screen.
  • Cons: Delicate. Error message.

This is not for Mac

Andy, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
2 May 2014
  • Summary: I have a 2011 iMac, and a Retina display Macbook, neither are able to output resolution of 2560 x 1080 that this monitor needs. So instead it only does 1920x1080. Maybe Mac may release an update, that can address the 21:9 Ratio, but LG also hasn't done a good job of talking about that too. The "Mac Compatible" is only about the software, and it does not run well. Every time you move a window from one area to another the Mac doesn't know what to do with it.

  • Summary: I have been looking at 29" Ultra wide monitors for a while. I was looking at the LG 29EA93 29, AOC, NEC and Dell Ultra Sharp 4k. I had read the Dell 4k monitor had a terrible response time, and all the other monitors were about $100+ more than this one with no difference in specs that i could find. After a lot of research I decided to take a chance (couldn't find a lot of info on this model) - and It paid off.
  • Pros: SIZE!!! functionality, resolution, screen, everything!!!
  • Cons: inner bezel separating the screen from the frame, LG support is as useful as a asshole on your elbow. Absolutely USELESS. NCIX tech support on the other hand, EXCELLENT! They were far more useful than LG.
