3 out of 5 eggsDead Pixel

Pros: 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 it helps having those extra toolbars on the side of the screen not blocking your view.

Cons: 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 with the measurements before you spend $450-$600 for one!

Other Thoughts: 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!

5 out of 5 eggsA New Paradigm

Pros: 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 documents up at once and see them all without scrolling or navigating a bezel. For example, for homework, or work I've taken home, I can have the instructions on one side, reference material on the other side, and my document in the middle. It's fantastic. The same can be said if you are the kind of person who surfs the web 3 browser windows at a time, like me. Yes, I could do this with dual 16:9 screens, and I have, and it works just fine, but this is better.

For gaming it is no contest. I've used triple screens for gaming and loved it, but this no bezel experience is worth giving up a little extra total width versus triple screens to avoid the bezels in the way. Although not every game has 21:9 support, all the ones I play do, and it is practically like removing blinders from the sides of your eyes.

The colors, detail, sharpness and contrast are excellent as well. It's not a pro monitor, but it performs well enough that I can do my imagery work at home when I have to, and my animation and video homework as well.

For video editors and content providers, the 21:9 format is about as good as you can get, miles above a double or triple screen 16:9 or 16:10. You may want a second screen as auxilliary, for things like controls or documents, but timeline editing on the 21:9 is really the only way to fly.

As far as IPS bleed, I haven't noticed anything worse than every other mid-priced IPS on the market. If you're super picky about it, then your priorities are different than most, and you should look for a different screen with less bleed. But if you're like 99.9% of the population, you'll never notice it, and if you do likely won't be disturbed by it.

Due to their cost I wouldn't try to run these as dual or triple monitors, and that might be over the top even for me. If I needed more screen space than this provides I would either a) make due because I like this screen so much, or b) go triple. This screen pretty much makes double screens obsolete. What I haven't done yet, but probably will eventually, is run triple screens with the 21:9 in the middle and my two previous 16:9 on the outsides. I mean, I already own the other two, so why not?

Time to save my pennies for the 3440 x 1440.

Cons: 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 improvement this is over 16:9 for most things we do. Even the 25" model has an exceptional place in the market for very small screens, and yes, the 25" model looks like a small screen because although it may be 24" wide, the display is only like 10" tall.

Other Thoughts: 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.

1 out of 5 eggsDeceptive Screen Edge

Pros: Sharp, clean, adjustable stand

Cons: 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 displayed) is wrong.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty good!

Pros: 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, or a regular monitor, but when it is on this ultra wide monitor, there will be no black bars. Truly stunning experience with the movies.

Not all games will have 2560x1080 support. If the game does not support this resolution, you have two options. Play the game at 1920x1080 at stretched or 1920x1080 with the black bars in the left and right sides of the screen (in which case it will be the size of 23-24 inches monitor).

The speakers are 7w!!! Two of them! Although this may not be at the same level of many TVs, assuming that you have the monitor at a much closer distance, they are more than enough. I keep my volume at 10 and it's pretty loud!

When working with multiple screens, I don't like to divide into 4 screens. They get way too small/cramped. Dividing into two, left and right, seem good to me. If you are thinking of working with 4 screens, I would suggest that you go with a 34 inch at a higher resolution. 2560x1080 resolution will make them look really squeezed.

Ability to change the height with ease.

Got it for 275 dollars during the sale.

Cons: 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 thin bezel. The actual monitor have about half an inch bezel when turned on.

The button is quite annoying. Although the speaker volume can be changed with easy, this is the first monitor to use that I will have to hold the button for a some period of time to turn on or off. Why can't we have a simple click/touch to turn on and off?

Other Thoughts: 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 turned off with only the monitor on, then I notice a slight bleed in one of the corners.

4 out of 5 eggsnice but...

Pros: - 2560 x 1080 not much more taxing for videocard
- 21:9 format great for movies can add to immersion in games
- height adjustment

Cons: - IPS glow: always hated it since it's annoying in dark scenes (movies and gaming) and at this size (29" - ultrawide) I think it's an even bigger deal. For me personally was a dealbreaker...

Other Thoughts: Got rid of it and bought a 27" VA panel. Sure, I lost the extra pixels but.. IPS glow = never again....

4 out of 5 eggsFirst Run, DVI Connection ALL Green

Pros: OK, Pro's,
I like the width and the option to go vertical. I like the split screen options (8) different splits. It's was worth the sale price. I have played movies and games, all good. Shipping was good, nothing broken or dead pix. I will update as it gets more use.

Cons: OK, Con's
DvI connection was green, almost like it wasn't plugged in all the way.I have a 10ft DVI Cable. I tried both ends (flipped around). Plugged in all the way, still green screen, I could see the desktop, everything green. Plugged in the HDMI cable and screen back to normal. Display port ok with normal screen color. Both HDMI and Display port will not go full resolution.
Checked video card, fine with DVI on 2 other screens I own. So maybe Need Different style DVI, one with more pins. I gave it 4 stars for that trouble. I'm going to email LG tech support see what I need.
I would have still bought this screen and I'm happy with it. The video's and gaming, i'm ok with other resolutions and they look great.

Other Thoughts: It was worth the sale price, I'm going to see another cable or just upgrade video card. Either or Both. So go ahead and buy it, it Good!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsIt was better than I expected....

Pros: I bought this to replace an older 22" HP LCD monitor, other than just the sheer size, the IPS panel is worlds apart from the older tech, colours are better, viewing angle is amazing. I was initially sceptical of going from 16:10 to 16:9, but honestly I don't even notice the difference. Everything is super bright and clear. In the past few days I've used mine for playing video games, as well as coding, both are so much nicer now. I know I've only had the monitor a few days, so if anything goes wrong i'll update the review.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: The OSD menu is a little tricky to get the hang of at first, but once you have it it isn't too bad. I'd have still preferred a separate "select button" and power buttons. Not enough to remove an egg for though.

4 out of 5 eggsCould have been great, but still nice!

Pros: Beautiful detail on screen, great horizontal length, IPS display, 3 year warranty. Assassin's Creed looks incredible! Monitor has no bad pixels. Newegg got this to my door in a single day! Wow................

Cons: Only one, but significant. The vertical length is less than 13 inches. Coming from a 24" 1900 x 1200, I'm actually missing the extra inch in vertical length from my 24".

Other Thoughts: Got this on sale for Black Friday with VISA checkout. This will hold me over while 4k IPS panels mature and drop in price. I plan on picking one up for Black Friday 2015.

1 out of 5 eggsSigh... Black Friday, must return?

Pros: Well, it turns on.

Cons: Monitor has a dark shadow the size of a baseball on the mid-bottom-right. It as if there are lights which shine up from the bottom which "light" the monitor, but a light-bulb is out kind of look.

It does this upon powering on (even without input), tried multiple inputs, tried GPU w/ different monitor with no problem. Tried different power settings; tried different power supply to monitor. No avail.

Customer support is closed so ill have to wait until tomorrow to determine whether they have any idea what's going on.

Other Thoughts: Oh well. If I got a faulty one, so be it, so long as they get me a working one I will re-review as appropriate!

5 out of 5 eggsSimply put, LG's 21:9 monitors are a must for professionals.

Pros: The resolution is enough to run (and create) cinemascope size content. The IPS panel makes colors really pop *as it should, and accurately. Fairly light weight. Ability to use in landsape or portrait.

Cons: The lack of universal 3 prong female power connectors is a bit of a downer, especially in offices switching over.

Other Thoughts: My design studio uses the bigger brothers (34UC97 and 34UM95) at every workstation, as well as a few of these interspersed and let me tell you, if you are a professional of any kind, these are great. I use them with Premiere, After Effects, Maya, 3DS Max, Visual Studio, and since we switched, our productivity is up by a significant amount. I purchased one of these models for my personal use today. LG makes the best 21:9 monitors, and we've tried whats out there as far as professional monitors. That being said, for those who are simply looking for a new monitor, you'd be much better off buying a normal 1080p or 1440p 16:9 monitor, as the usage will better fit you. For professionals this, and every model we've used will blow anything else away.
