13 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The reviewer at Prohardver.hu decided that concluded that they would endorse this flatpanel monitor and gave it their "Recommended" award.

Good Brand

Medium monitors produced by LG have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all LCD screens (not just medium monitors) and found that LG also has good reviews across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other LCD screens of this age and spec which do not have a built-in speaker, the LG 29EB53 has a built-in speaker.

Other PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider include the Fujitsu P23T-6[plb_1495835_price], the iiyama XB2779QS[plb_1954340_price], or the Eizo FlexScan EV2416W[plb_1839116_price] which has better reviews.

8 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

The 29EB53 is in the most expensive 15% of all 998 PC displays of a comparable type and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 29EB53 will cost £85 over 5 years to run.

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 29EB53 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens of a similar spec and age to the 29EB53 are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Philips 278G4DHSD[plb_1499355_price], the Samsung LS23A700DS[plb_1458097_price], or the Asus VG27AH[plb_1426322_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years, the LG 29EB53 does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth also looking at alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in camera including the HP EliteDisplay S231[plb_2198924_price], or the AOC I2472[plb_2126699_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The LG 29EB53 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 29EB53 also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL U2413[plb_1565290_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC display has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on LCD screens of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The LG 29EB53 is a one USB 2.0 port PC screen.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode

The power consumptions when in PowerSave mode of PC displays that were released more than two years ago range from 0.14W to 80W. With a power consumption when in PowerSave mode of 27.64 Watts, the LG 29EB53 has one of the higher power consumptions when in PowerSave mode amongst comparable spec PC monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the LG 29EB53

Released Over Three Years Ago

LG released the 29EB53 over three years ago.

LCD Display Type

The LG 29EB53 has a better display type than most PC monitors that came out around the same time as it. This LCD screen has an LCD display type, whereas most comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to it have an LED display type.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative LCD screens that have an LCD Display currently available including the X2485WS[pl_1426407_price], or the XB2485WSU[pl_1448731_price] both from iiyama or the Philips 271P4QPJ[plb_1445410_price] which has better reviews.

If the display type of this flatpanel monitor is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the iiyama XB2780HSU[plb_1370714_price] (LED), the Samsung T27D390[plb_2404389_price] (LED), or the LG 29UB55[plb_2505527_price] (LED) which is also higher rated.
