Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great monitor! But Make sure it will work for YOU!

 

This is a higher resolution monitor so if you plan on gaming with it make sure you have a decent graphics card. Also a program called flawless widescreen makes most games fit nicely to the 21:9 aspect ratio but there are still some old Windows XP games...

Affordable for an ultrawide, great ips display, great colors, easy to set up, Awesome for games that support it

Some features shouldn't have even been included in this size such as the 4- way split screen. I'm sure it works great for their 34" but on this small of a screen it doesn't fit quite right

Great if you can get it for 200

 

At the orginial price I don't see it being worth it, but for 200 the added pixels are nice. a 25 - 27 inch 1080p monitor is also a better choice If you like larger sized pixels.

It's a very clear, bright monitor with good color reproduction. A lot of pixels

LG should include an display port cable

Wonderful

 

Crystal clear. Replaced a Dell 2240L IPS with this and the colors look just as good. The VESA mount holes are in a good position if you decide to use a stand or something else

The menu knob on the bottom isn't very intuitive with the first use

A Great Monitor for Mac Users

 

--- I have a retina macbook pro 13" and the monitor gives 2560 X 1080 resolution on both HDMI and Displayport, I have used both, but for some reason I liked the displayport connection better than HDMI. The sound quality of the monitor is great. I...

Extra Widescreen ; Speakers good quality ; Good Contrast ; Monitor Menus are easy to navigate ; Excel looks great on this ; I personally feel as if my mac pro retina is enlarged keeping the same aspect ratio

Not a big deal and as expected, colors will not be as good as the retina display of the mac, but its pretty good ; build quality could be little improved ; providing a display port cable would help

21:9 make 16:9 look like 4:3.

 

If you looking for a monitor to watch movies, play games, surf the internet then this monitor is for you. 144 hz gaming monitor is great but TN panel is not that great, the views to the colors are not that good, sure the 144 hz help in gaming but when...

This is a IPS panel running 21:9 ratio in 2560x1080p ; Now for the colors: i must say it's better then my Samsung 6420 Series 3D HDTV, it's way sharper & the colors are right ; There four settings in picture, there custom, photo, cinema & game ; Cinema...

I had no money for the 29' model ; the LG 25UM64-S Look kind of small for a 25' but it's my eyes are getting use to the screen size since i always use a 20' monitor & 40' 3D HTV

LG 25UM64-S New screen tech 21:9 pls etc

 

I guess the menu volume controls the pc output. i don't really know what a dual link dvi cable is i am using my IOGEAR GHDC1405W6 with Ethernet from here 3yrs ago. didn't use the included, i think the io has more quality PLS options? Probably over paid...

This is an upgrade from my LG E2370V-BF i have had for over 3 years. This has a lot of the same specs including power usage weight and contrast plus more. The split screen software is an awesome feature that has little cpu draw. The windows 7 feature...

The external power supply ; DVI cord from my last lg makes resolution look like a 90's crt ; saturated cable market ; Other options sound better than built in speakers ; changing audio from hdmi to optical out a bit of a hassle / i don't know how to do...

Get two for productivity

 

I previously had two 20" monitors that ran 1680x1050 resolution. I really wanted one monitor to replace them, however if you put them both together I would have needed something that does 3360x1050 resolution. The LG 34UM95 would do that, but at $1000...

Horizontal screen resolution, IPS display, several input options

Vertical screen resolution, short stand
