According to sales data from Amazon, the 29UC88 is one the fastest selling flatpanel monitor currently available for purchase.

Good Size

One customer who purchased the product concluded that it was a good height. R.m mentioned on Amazon in October this year “The stand has a good height range and small amount of rotation, so if your desk isn't completely level you can adjust it a little” in their review and scored it 4 stars.

Robust

One customer who reviewed it thought it was well made. In October this year Buyerofthings wrote “The indicator light is actually built into the joystick”.

Good Picture Quality

One LG 29UC88 owner who reviewed it thought it had good colour saturation. Buyerofthings mentioned in October this year “The colours are acceptable, coming from my previous Dell IPS screen” in their review of this PC monitor and gave this PC monitor a rating of 4 stars.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus BE24AQLB[plb_3194464_price], the iiyama X2888HS-B2[plb_3812366_price], or the Philips 240B7QPTEB[plb_3757125_price].

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC Q2963PQ[plb_3668409_price], the Benq Zowie XL2411Z[plb_3761442_price], and the Asus BE24AQLB[plb_3194464_price] is also worth considering.
