When compared to other comparable spec LCD screens that came out around the same time as the 29UC88-B that we have assessed the horizontal viewing angle of, the LG 29UC88-B's horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees is one of the widest.

4 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been on the market for the last year, the 29UC88-B is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Acer GN276HL[plb_3495354_price], or the Benq Zowie XL2430[plb_3761443_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for the last year, the LG 29UC88-B does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the Lenovo X1[plb_3755263_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 29UC88-B do not have an integrated card reader. The LG 29UC88-B is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the 2407WFP[pl_3247392_price], or the 2408WFP[pl_3249739_price] both from DELL which also has a higher rating.
