8 Reasons For

LG Has Good PC Monitor Reviews

LG has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire flatpanel monitor range compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec PC displays that were launched more than a year ago, the LG 29UC97 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The LG 29UC97 is a two HDMI port PC monitor. Most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 29UC97 have between one and three HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Audio Power

The LG 29UC97 has one of the higher RMS rated audio powers (14 Watts) amongst medium monitors of this age. The average RMS rated audio power of LCD screens of a similar age and type to the 29UC97 is 5.6W.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Display Diagonal

Medium monitors that have been around for more than a year have screen sizes of between 48cm and 600cm, and the average display diagonal is 65cm. At 73.66 centimeters, the LG 29UC97 has a quite big display diagonal compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been available for a similar time to the 29UC97.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Display Brightness

The average display brightness of PC screens of this type and age is 280 cd/m², and the display brightness range from 25 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m². At 300 candellas per square meter, the LG 29UC97 has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the 29UC97.

Chart Edit

2560 X 1080 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the LG 29UC97 is 2560 x 1080. That's 33% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). Across all medium monitors that have been around for more than a year the resolution ranges from 720 x 400 (worst) to 4096 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

Short

At only 316.5 millimeters, the LG 29UC97 is fairly short compared to most of the other PC screens that have been available for around the same time as the 29UC97. The average height of comparable spec PC monitors that are a similar age to the 29UC97 is 360mm, and the heights range from 28mm to 930mm.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the 29UC97, the LG 29UC97 does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to the 29UC97, the LG 29UC97 is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the LG 24MP47 (£166.32), or the iiyama B2783QSU-B1 (£249.97).

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the 29UC97 do not have an integrated card reader. The LG 29UC97 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to look at include the Benq SW2700PT (£568.97), or the DELL UP2715K (£798.53).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Has Two Cables Included

The LG 29UC97 has a greater number of cables included than most medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this LCD screen. The cables included DisplayPort and HDMI are also found on this PC screen.

4 Other reasons to consider the LG 29UC97

OK Running Costs

This PC screen is rated A for energy efficiency, and the average 5 year running cost of the 29UC97 is £47 based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 505 medium monitors that have been around for more than a year.

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this LG LCD screen was released.

Two Thunderbolt Ports

The LG 29UC97 is a two thunderbolt port PC screen which is average compared to the other seven medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 29UC97 that we have assessed the number of thunderbolt ports of.

We compared this PC display to all the other 2 thunderbolt port LCD screens and we think because of it's better review score, the LG 34UC87 (£802.38) is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The LG 29UC97 has an LCD display type which is better than most similar spec PC displays that are a comparable age to it. Most medium monitors that are a similar age to it have an LED display type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus VN247 (£135.70).

If the display type of this medium monitor is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Philips 224E5 (LED), or the AOC G2460VQ6 (£119.99) (LED) which also has a higher rating.
