Dead Pixel

 

I use HDMI for this Monitor through a EVGA GeForce GTX 760 and the graphics are always set to ultra. You can turn the whole screen sideways... Idk why you would want to but you can!

HUGE Screen! Awesome quality of picture. Built in speakers are alright. I paid $300 for this monitor and for that money it doesn't get much better. Star Wars The Old Republic and World of Warcraft look awesome on this beast. And with it being very wide...

Dead Pixel right in the middle of screen, LG claims they have no stock left to give me a replacement even though its in stock everywhere else. The screen does seem like its squished a bit, its not a tall monitor just very wide. Make sure your happy...

A New Paradigm

 

I bought this as an open box sale to save a few bucks. Having experienced it now I would buy another at full price, but I'll probably wait for a sale.

This monitor looks amazing. Many people have said that the extra width does them no good, but I suspect that those people have never actually used a super widescreen monitor like this. The extra screen space rapidly became invaluable. I can have 3...

I suppose this screen costs more than it otherwise would because it is a fairly new format and not popular enough yet to benefit from economies of scale. That's a shame though, because if more people used it then more people would realize what an...

Deceptive Screen Edge

 

Sharp, clean, adjustable stand

Where the screen start is deceptive. In all the LG ads the screen top-left and top-right starts very close to the edge. In actuality the screen starts about 1 cm from the edge. Even in the picture from newegg the screen edge (where the picture...

Pretty good!

 

People seem to have issues with the backlight bleed? Most IPS monitors will have a sort of bleed. That's the LIGHT SOURCE of the monitor. If you do not like that, do not use this monitor. While using it, there is no bleeding. While the computer is...

2560x1080 resolution is amazing. Although most users will probably require a displayport to use this resolution, it only costs 10 or so dollars ; The movie experience is stunning. Most movies have black bars when they are watched on a TV, wide screen,...

The package does not include the displayport. It'll take most people to use the displayport to get this to work to its full extent, even as the description says. Not including the cable is stupid ; The advertising picture seems to have an extremely...

Fantastic monitor

 

I bought this monitor when it was on crazy sale and had a coupon. Price was $350. For that price, this monitor is a steal.

Massive screen, amazing color replication. Really nice stand, feels sturdy. Bought this monitor largely for work from home, but gaming on it is very immersive. Small bezel, about 1/2" all around. OSD is nice, functions pretty easily. If anyone was...

Lowest the monitor goes down is about 13 inches tall including stand. Not a huge deal, it just barely fits in the furniture I'm using it with, but it would be nice to go down lower. Doesn't use a standard monitor power cable. It requires its own small...

LG 29UB65-P

 

This monitor has been utterly superb since I purchased it in February. I have 2560 x 1080 resolution off of my HDMI cable contrary to the earlier post

It's cheaper now then it was when I bought it

Disappointing virtical size

 

FYI I do not own one of these monitors. I've looking looking to get a wide format display for a while and the price on this looked right, however I could not find any reviews except the one here. A local BB had them in stock and on display so I went to...

Wide, good color and picture from what I could see

Short and squashed looking

LG 29 inches LED Computer Monitor with HDMI and Display port LG29UB65-P

 

Excellent image quality, colour difference to my LED monitor is like night and day, bought as a gaming monitor and haven't had any real problems with compatibility other than having to edit the odd .cfg file here and there, stand is sturdy and does job...

I bought another one of these as part of a build for a friend and the plastic bezel around where the LG logo and LED light seems to have swollen away from the screen slightly exposing the metal frame underneath. Not great given the price of this...
