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.


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.

LG Has Good PC Screen Reviews

Based on 3,262 user and expert reviews, LG has good ratings for its PC monitors. LG also has good ratings specifically for its medium monitors compared to other brands.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many comparable spec LCD screens that came out around the same time as it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including the DELL U2412M[plb_1448037_price], the iiyama GB2783QSU[plb_3810040_price], or the Lenovo ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 24[plb_3726393_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG 29UC88 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens that have been available for a similar time to the 29UC88 also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Acer K272HUL[plb_3837383_price], or the Asus BE24AQLB[plb_3194464_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Acer B276HUL[plb_3309140_price] is also worth considering.
