LG 29UC88 29 Curved Ultrawide Monitor Review

11 Reasons For

Top Seller

The 29UC88 is a popular choice of LCD screen.

Good Size

One LG 29UC88 owner who bought the LG 29UC88 considered that it was a good height. In December R.m said in their review of the LG 29UC88 “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”.

Robust

One person mentioned in their reviews that the LG 29UC88 was well made. Buyerofthings rated the product 80 out of 100 and said in their review of this PC monitor on Amazon in December “The indicator light is actually built into the joystick”.

Good Picture Quality

One LG 29UC88 reviewer who bought it considered that it had good colour saturation. Buyerofthings said in their review on Amazon a few weeks ago “The colours are acceptable, coming from my previous Dell IPS screen”.

LG Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

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

LED Display

This LCD screen has an LED display, which is typical of many new medium monitors.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Lenovo Pro2820[plb_2529020_price], the Acer K272HUL[plb_3837383_price], or the Benq Zowie XL2411Z[plb_3761442_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The LG 29UC88 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other new medium monitors also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic VX2778-SMHD[plb_3627684_price], the AOC AG241QX[plb_3811694_price], and the LG 20MT48DF[plb_3707519_price] is also worth considering.

Very High RMS Rated Power

When compared to other recently released comparable spec PC monitors, the RMS rated power of the LG 29UC88 of 14 Watts is one of the highest. The RMS rated powers of newly released medium monitors range from 0.5W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Display Diagonal (metric)

The display diagonal (metric)s of medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the 29UC88 range from 49cm to 820cm. The LG 29UC88 has a fairly big display diagonal (metric) (73 centimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 29UC88.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Color Gamut

Across all the LCD screens that have been on the market for the last year the color gamuts range from 68% to 110%. With a color gamut of 99 percent, the LG 29UC88 has one of the larger color gamuts amongst similar spec flatpanel monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

2560 X 1080 Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution of the LG 29UC88 is 2560 x 1080. That's 33% more resolution than a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) flatpanel monitor, which is the most frequently found resolution. The best resolution of all LCD screens that were released around the same time as the 29UC88 is 3840 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 350.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One customer concluded that the LG 29UC88 was not easy to use. Buyerofthings said in their review of this PC monitor “I've heard people complain about the "joystick" control on the bottom of the monitor.” however despite that they still gave the product a rating of 80 out of 100.

Only Mega Contrast Contrast Ratio (dynamic)

This LCD screen has a Mega Contrast contrast ratio (dynamic), which is the most frequently found contrast ratio (dynamic) on recently released medium monitors.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LG 29UC88 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 29UC88 also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

Most medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 29UC88 are not 3D. The LG 29UC88 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you are looking for a flatpanel monitor that is 3D then you might want to consider the Zowie XL2430[pl_3761443_price], or the ZOWIE XL2720[pl_3761444_price] both from Benq or the Acer Predator GN276HL[plb_3245778_price] which also has a higher rating.
