2560 X 1080 Graphics Resolution

The LG 29UC97 has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1080. That's 33% more resolution than a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) PC screen, which is the most common resolution. The worst resolution of all flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the 29UC97 is 720 x 400 and the best is 4096 x 2160.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LG 29UC97 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC screens of a comparable type and age to the 29UC97 also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 29UC97 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC screens of a comparable age and type to the 29UC97 are also not 3D compatible.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The LG 29UC97 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 29UC97 also do not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth considering other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader including the DELL UP2715K ($1,749.99), or the Benq SW2700PT ($599.00) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Has One Cable Included

The number of cables included found on the LG 29UC97 is more than most medium monitors that are a similar age to it. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC display. The cables included DisplayPort,HDMI are also found on this PC screen.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the LG 29UC97

Two Thunderbolt Ports

The LG 29UC97 is a two thunderbolt port PC monitor. That's average compared to the other seven PC screens of this age and type that we have assessed the number of thunderbolt ports of.

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

Read more Less Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The LG 29UC97 has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most PC displays of a similar age and type to it.

If you are looking for a flatpanel monitor with a better display type then you might want to look at the Benq XL2420 (LED), or the Acer G277HL ($159.99) (LED) which also has a higher rating.
