Surprise (not inside)

Richard Schmitz, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: The monitor is nice. I prefer IPS over TFT based screens and this one does a good job. Besides the debate over the bezel (what counts, what doesn't, etc), I have to say LG's decision to NOT include a USB 3.0 cable to hook up the USB ports on the back to your computer is a surprise. Prior to my purchase, LG's website listed the USB cable as being included.

Great for PC - only OK for Mac

Mr. X "gyrussfanx", Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: So I use a MAC for work and I use a PC at home. When I bring my Mac home to work at nights it's nice to be able to use Synergy from one machine to another and have dual monitors. I bought this monitor with that in mind. It has the ability to split the screen down the middle (for two sources) as if it were two monitors. Sounds great in theory but in practice its not that great for a couple of reasons: 1.

amazing for gaming

Ali, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: great monitor for gaming, 21:9 is amazing with the resolution 2560x1080, everything is perfect in this monitor, the color is great, gaming mode is amazing, no dead pixel, no bleeding, this is the best monitor I ever had, better than my old monitors( hp zr30w,Samsung (S27B970),dell 3008wfp,ASUS VG278HE ...) i didn't noticed any input lag. I think aspect ratio 21:9 will be the future for gaming (I wish). good job LG.

Connecting to Mac mini

F. Lecaros, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I experienced the resolution problem and solved it by purchasing a mini displayport to displayport cable which allowed setting the higher value. However, it did not solve the whole problem. The Mac mini recognized the monitor as a TV. The solution: download a script from the internet to force RGB monitor. But you better have a computer-wise young helper for this kind of stuff! But I admit that once it's working it's very nice.

Works with Mac, with correct cable

F V Dale, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: You can't use HDMI on Mac with this monitor, you need a DVI-D active converter (from thunderbolt) or a Displayport output. HDMI is limited to only 1080p on Macs.

WJOBrien, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I can't give this monitor a better rating because it arrived to me defective and within 20 minutes was pretty much un-usable. That said those 20 minutes were very impressive. The screen was everything I hoped it would be in terms of increased readability and image sharpness. One thing I did notice is how low profile the monitor was (about 14 inches) compared to my dual 27" monitors.

Great Display.

J. R Simpson, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I have been using the Display with my MacBook Pro. You need to use the DVI to Thunderbolt cable so it will display at full resolution. The display is beautiful. The only fault is that the controls are very sensitive, but they are workable.

This monitor is a great way to watch movies & play games.

Jerry Lawson, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: Bonus factors are the ability to split your screen x 4 so if you use multiple apps for video or picture it is a cool asset for easy access between these screens.

Your eyes will pop! Great picture Quality.

Edgardo Rodriguez Gutierrez, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: Wow! Wow! Wow! This is an awesome monitor. I bought two of this and I can tell you the picture is extremely clear. So far no problems. I'm taking one star because when I saw a video review, it included the USB 3.0 cable., but when i got mines the cable is no longer included and the back of the monitor is black instead of white. Different model? Don't know. There are some reviews stating that theres a bleeding light from the edge. Mines don't have that issue.
