Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great monitor with terrible light bleed.

 

Steer clear of this one.

Ultrawide, great colors, good enough response time.

HORRIBLE light bleed, inexcusably bad in darker scenes. Bad enough now that I wish I had returned the monitor when I first noticed it.

Good upgrade from 24" 1080p TN panel

 

I now have a tri monitor setup using my two older 1080p TN panels, and the extra screen real estate is great for work, but unfortunately this monitor's color quality has made me realize I was used to awful colors for the last 8 years. Now I need to...

My experience with IPS monitors are limited, so take this for what it is. - Good color reproduction and viewing angles. - At 29", this monitor's PPI is in the same range of a 24" 1080p monitor at 95 PPI. (24" at 1080p is 92 PPI) - means zero fussing...

- 1080 vertical pixels may not be enough for productivity use, but for gaming and general use, I can imagine it being adequate. At this price point that is a nitpick. - Monitor only includes an HDMI cable, and my graphics card (Geforce GTX 660) does...

Bit the bullet, did not regret.

 

I originally purchased this for around $200 and I can not believe what I got for that price.

Viewing angles/brightness and color reproduction are all stellar. Cannot believe what I was missing out on with having an IPS panel. Gaming will never be the same.

The stand could use some tweaking. It stays in place but it is easy to move out of place if touched or bumped at all. Sometimes my cat adjusts it to his liking while I'm at work. The speakers are mediocre just like any built-in monitor speakers.

Great product, easy to set up.

 

I've only had this monitor for a week and so far, I'm pretty happy with it.

This monitor replaced a 24" that I had previously. It takes a little getting used to the ultrawide screen - trying to find that sweet spot where I can see everything. Since I have Windows 10, I didn't need to install the software to split the screen...

The only thing I was concerned about was when my monitor arrived, was that there was NO peel-off protective wrap on the actual screen, only the thin, foam bag that covered it.

Love the monitor! Perfect for what I need!

 

Large viewing space all in one screen. Has more than enough room to be able to run multiple programs and screens simultaneously.

I have none to offer

Nice unit. speakers so-so. Used external speakers instead. No surprises. No problems. Good stand and articulation.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Decent.

 

I got one that had 2 dead pixels. Stupid me should have sent it back for a replacement instead of taking off the UPC first and sending in the rebate.

Ultrawide! Some webpages are cut off on a 16:9 monitor when put side to side. Not this! 29" monitor makes it vertically just the right size. Got it during black Friday, so it was cheap.

Mouse cursor has a ghosting trail. Not too sure how to fix this. It's pretty much unknown on the internet, so I can't get a preset color profile.

Great product with great price

 

I got this at a good price during black friday sale. I was very satisfied with this. I don't play game, so can't say about that. But If you want to do multitasking like coding, and office work, this is the great choice. This version is cheaper than...

Ultra wide with IPS panel. Great price from black friday deal. Perfect for my multitasking work( word, coding... ) and occasional wide format movie watching. This one is the top list of my best shopping experience. height adjustment.

The first one was defective. newegg service was very good for returning. Speaker is so so

Paired with a 29UM65B works great!

 

The now cheaper counter part to the 29UM65B. The only difference between the two are the following: Brightness is a bit lower. (this is the 250 cd/m2 part of the spec VS the 65's 300cd/m2) You can get them to match pretty close with some tuning. Some...

Much less expensive than other versions in the same form factor. Has most of the same features as the more expensive counter parts. Considered a 2K monitor (I would view it as more of a 1.75K) Great for complex UI used in development, video editing,...

Uses the smaller VESA mount standard, which is less common on the monitors that have VESA mounts. Getting one of these you will understand why they make curved displays, these are right at the edge of almost being too wide to view without distortion of...

Bad EMI

 

There are too many simple design flaws, it would have been nice if the designers had included simple interference choking or even separating their signal grounds from their power grounds.

-Reasonably priced ultrawide monitor -Decent response time -OK color/gamut

-Bad EMI, both radiatiting from the monitor and into it's audio circuits -Slow to turn on -Color on screen corresponds to monitor audio circuit interference frequency
