1 Other reason to consider the LG 27UD88-W

Average Width

At 615 millimeters, the 27UD88-W has a relatively typical width compared to most of the other new medium monitors.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 615mm wide PC screens currently available including the LG 27UD68-W[plb_3304971_price] which has better reviews.

If you would consider a flatpanel monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the Acer Predator XB271H[plb_3245625_price] (640mm).
