29UB55-P 29" WideScreen Super-Wide LED Monitor

The 21:9 ratio is the perfect professional fit for software engineers, video / sound editors, and graphic designers. Imagine 2 conventional high quality monitors attached for multi-tasking, but their screens connect and extend seamlessly. Now you can use a program with long-range panoramic view in full length, without any bezel in the middle or dragging cursors. No longer divide your focus into separate monitors, the 29UB55 is the perfect companion for your profession.

Like other smart devices, the 29UB55's Pivot & Height Adjustable feature allows you to simply rotate the screen to fit vertically long images or files. When pivoting, you can easily adjust its height too. Leave dragging and scrolling behind. Let the monitor adjust to your images and needs.

Connect two devices to a single monitor with Dual Link-up that allows an HDMI + HDMI link. Now you and your colleague can simply bring each other's devices and connect to a single monitor to share and compare information. Freely show and control your screen while watching your partner doing the same on the opposite side of the monitor. Don't bother installing annoying projectors in your small room or worry when your conference room is occupied, the 29UB55 is here for you.

With its wide screen ratio, now you can open 4 programs on a single screen to see your information in a single glance while working. The size of sub screens is user-controlled. The 29UB65 is compatible with Mac® and not only provides convenience but also productivity in a single click, you can split your screen into 2 to 4 subscreens.

Reducing blue light to protect your eyes, Reader Mode provides optimal condition for reading. With just a touch of a button, you can comfortably read on the monitor for as long as you would like to.

As LG IPS Monitor features consistency and less changes in colour temperature, it offers a colour impression identical to that of the original image. You can enjoy lifelike picture picture quality without any colour shift whether you are standing or lying down. It allows you to enjoy any content, such as action movies, web surfing and RPG games for a long time in comfort.

Protect your eyes from exhausting flickers and blue lights. LG's new Flicker Safe system is always on to reduce the flicker level to almost-zero. In addition, activate the Reader Mode to minimize harmful blue lights with a simple touch of a hot-key. Spend as long as you want working, gaming, or watching movies without burdening your eyes. Use the convenient and easy hot keys for more satisfaction.

The joystick is a harmony of accurate menu controls and analogue sensitivity. With the fun control of a conventional joystick, its modern technology and design allow for simple control with a pleasant touch. In addition, intuitive UI with no overlapping is easier to understand and select menus.

Great monitor for the price

Bought this monitor today and I felt I needed to review it to let people know how good it is for the price, as there are a lack of reviews (as stated in the only other review).

I wanted to get an entry level super-wide monitor, and that's exactly what this is, currently my 780 would struggle to run a 3440x1440 monitor with all the settings turned up in games, so I decided to go for this monitor to match my need and current hardware.

I am not disappointed, at all, the IPS panel really shows great colours, it came with no dead pixels or light bleed and games look amazing at the 21:9 resolution, even in GTAV where it comes into it's own, especially when driving in first person mode as the extra viewing space makes it more pleasurable and easier to drive coming up to cross sections (I would like to add the story line cut scenes are still shown at 1920x1080, but the transition is seamless so it doesn't bother me in the slightest). FPS shooters like BF4 also look great and the extra viewing space really does make you wonder how you played on a normal 16:9 screen.

The screen split feature makes working in the windows environment feel more productive, but this is not something I really need, but if you do a lot of multi program work (excel, word, browsing etc) it may help you.

Overall a really good buy at this price (

Lacking reviews! Not quality

I had trouble finding reviews for this monitor, also i had some concerns about backlight bleed after reading about other LG panels apparently suffering from it. There is very little in the way of reviews for this monitor and at this price point... it seems too good to be true. I contacted OCUK about my concerns with the backlight issues, and was reassured that this model doesn't seem to be affected based on the return rate. So i took the plunge!

The monitor arrived sharpish (as per) and i have to say... It's really, really nice! Coming from a 23" LG Passive 3D IPS monitor to a 29" 2560x1080 is a really nice step up it's basically like having 2x 17" monitors next to each other without the bezel. As you would expect, the stand comes detached and indeed attaches very easily with flat headed screwdriver in just a few seconds. You get the usual manuals and power cables (UK plug) and also an HDMI cable, although i advise a display port cable. (I bought the OCUK Value 1.8 meter) The monitor comes with the Screen Split software which allows you to select from 8 different layouts to provide a good and practical desktop division when working with lots of windows. Don't forget that windows has a couple of options that allow you to snap windows from place to place too though! Either way, it's nice to have even more choice!

Build quality: The build quality seems very sturdy and well made, no creaking of plastics or anything that concerns me to be honest. The stand is a little large for my liking, although with a large monitor... That's kind of what you would expect, especially at this price point. Speaker wise i haven't really used them yet, so can't comment too much. The finish mimics brushed steel although is made from pastic, this isn't really a negative though, as it definitely looks rather smart and is personally preferred over a glossy fingerprint magnet finish! The monitor stand can be rotated easily as the stand has turntable style fixture underneath that helps prevent any desk damage while rotating, which is a nice feature. ( "turntable style fixture" it's late, i cannot remember what it's name is haha!)

The height adjustment section is shipped with a little metal clip holding it in place, presumably to secure it while in transit. Just remove it and you will find that the monitor has a nice range for height and tilt. Some of the other models require you to use screws to adjust these elements, although not with the 29UB55, just move it to where you want it, can it stays put! You also get a cable clip to keep your cables tidy, although you will need to attach this yourself with the included screw. It's not much hassle at all.

Settings & Control: This monitor has a joystick style control for the intuitive menu that LG has provided. There are some great features that help battle eye-strain while reading (reader mode) and the PBP feature is great! You can have two PCs displayed on the one monitor (or any other HDMI input) Side by side! I find this a really neat feature at this price range! I tried this with an Xbox One while running the PC on the other side, and it worked great. Please be aware that if you do use a console on this monitor that they do NOT support the 21:9 ratio and revert back to 16:9 (iirc) There are lots of options to get your head around, but once it is set up it is a dream to work with.

The control itself takes some getting used to, i have backed out of menus a few times by accident and it got rather frustrating. It would be nice if we started getting remote controls for this kind of thing or indeed a better way to navigate, but again... at this price point, you really can't grumble! The menu is one of the best in my opinion/experience and offers a lot. I still have a fair few bits to check out yet as well, so can't go too in-depth at this point.

Work: I work from home and often have around 40 tabs open, so space was a must. I use photoshop and like nice bright colours, so IPS is perfect. The extra room on screen is great and greatly improves my productivity. Again the bundled software does offer some great splits to get the most out of your work time.

Play: I also play games and found that Battlefield 4 and Titanfall are Beautiful in the 21:9 ratio. Battlefield 4 menus seems to be in 16:9, although when you re-spawn, it maximises back to 21:9 again. Not all games support 21:9 however, so do keep that in mind. What happens with most unsupported games is that the black bars appear either side to keep the image from becoming stretched. (although can be overridden and streched out if you really want to, via the monitor menus) The monitor runs at 60hz and paired with a GTX gigabyte WF OC 780 3gb, 8gb ram and an oc'd i5 3570k it looks beautiful! I still get great FPS in my games. BF4 on ultra gave me between 80 / 95 FPS.

Movies: Movies look stunning, 21:9 is the perfect ratio for films, so becomes super immersive and makes for some amazing visuals!

In regards to unsuppor
