Good Picture Quality

One customer reckoned that the product had a good contrast ratio. Mr. A. J. Munro said in their review of the LG 25UM55 “The contrast ratio is very good, copes extremely well in situations where glare is an issue”.

Good Size

One LG 25UM55 owner who reviewed the product reckoned that it was a good width. Mr. A. J. Munro wrote in their LG 25UM55 review “My primary use is for Flight Simming where the extra width really is a better solution than multiple monitors” .

LG Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

We checked 3,264 user and expert reviews for LG PC monitors and found that on average LG has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that LG has good reviews specifically within its medium monitors range.

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors of a similar type and age to it.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display and we think because of it's better review score, the iiyama GB2488HSU[plb_2185179_price], and the Benq BL2201[plb_2333127_price] is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Not Robust

One person who bought the product thought it was not strong and durable. Mr. A. J. Munro said “I suspect that this would also apply to heavy duty document comparison or Spreadsheet work as well”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The LG 25UM55 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC screens of a similar age and type to the 25UM55 also do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Viewsonic VX2370SMH[plb_1519048_price], the AOC M2752[plb_1474173_price], or the LG 34UM95[plb_2175141_price] which is also higher rated.

Not 3D Compatible

Most similar spec PC monitors that came out more than two years ago are not 3D compatible. The LG 25UM55 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

LCD screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Asus VG23AH[plb_1411330_price], the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Benq XL2411T[plb_1522088_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 25UM55, the LG 25UM55 does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the 241P4QPY[pl_1398366_price], or the 231C5[pl_1599727_price] both from Philips which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The LG 25UM55 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the 25UM55 also do not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], the U2713H[pl_1518815_price], or the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price] all from DELL.
