LG 29UM65 ultra-wide monitor

 

A potential replacement for users who currently use two separate monitors

2560x1080 resolution ; Very good colour reproduction ; IPS panel

The extra width can take time to get used to ; This model has only a basic tilt stand

LG's 29UM65 is a 29in ultra-widescreen monitor that's perfect for multitasking and watching movies. Its picture quality is crisp and vibrant, and it uses IPS technology to provide a uniform image across the screen. Well worth a look if you're after a...

LG 29UM65 UltraWide Monitor: Australian Review

 

Widescreen monitors are great. They're spot-on for watching Blu-rays or downloaded TV, and they're well suited to modern PC gaming. But if you want to multi-task, regular widescreen can be a bit restrictive; it's just not wide enough. LG's 21:9...

If you like the idea of browsing the Web with a couple of browser windows open simultaneously, the $599 29UM65 is the monitor to get. If you want a flashy and modern monitor that also works as a conversation starter for anyone walking past your desk —...

Awesome, except for gaming.

 

Too wide, odd thing to complain about right? The whole point of buying such a big screen was because it would fit games with lots more view space. One problem, very few games support it. You can manually change some, but most just wont work with it at...

Very spacious, great for watching movies, great for office work since you can fit a lot of windows on it ; Very bright, without real noticeable blur

Too wide, hard to adjust aspect ratio with games

LG 29UM65

 

Speakers are good enough to get sound to you, don't expect a miracle. don't count on the speakers, I don't care about high end sound on this PC and wanted minimal items on my desk. however I do need sound so I guess I'll have to buy a small sound bar.

Beautiful Massive Monitor ; Easy Controls ; Easy set up

The settings for the monitor Don't save and revert back to factory default when waking from sleep ; Couldn't ever get sound to work through HDMI or Displayport connections. So I set the default Audio imput to the Audio in Connection which it looses...

LG 29" Refurb

 

There is a slight scratch on the back of the monitor... doesn't bother me. At some point I may get the larger 32" or 34".

The monitor has good response time, attractive design, and allows me the ability to have more than one internet page open at a time. It allows two internet pages side by side comfortably and three tight windows

The screen takes a bit of getting use to. My previous monitor(18*) was not a wide screen; however the more I use it the more I like it

Great purchase but not at full pricce

 

Roughly as tall as my 23" 16:9 panel so it works well as a second monitor. If I knew that LG would come out with a Free Sink Enabled Monitor 5 months later I would have waited, as this monitor is used primarily for gaming and watching movies. The cons...

Great for gaming ; slim bezels ; good colors ; I got it at a great price ; 2560*1080 resolution ; 0 bad pixels

Netflix and Youtube videos recorded in 21:9 aspect ratio display w/ big black bars around it ; The included software is a bit clunky ; The joystick menu controler is kinda awkward/cheap feeling but well implemented
