Chart Edit

Quite Large Color Gamut

The LG 25UM57 has a fairly large color gamut (99 percent) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than a year ago. Medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 25UM57 have color gamuts of between 68% and 120%, and the average color gamut is 82%.

Chart Edit

2560 X 1080 Graphics Resolution

The LG 25UM57 has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1080. That's 33% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). PC displays of this age and type graphics resolutions range from 720 x 400 (worst) to 4096 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

The LG 25UM57 has a greater number of cables included than most PC screens of a comparable type and age to it. This flatpanel monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on PC displays of a comparable age and type to the 25UM57.

Short

Similar spec LCD screens that have been available for more than a year have heights of between 28mm and 930mm. When compared to other LCD screens that were released one year ago that we have checked, the height of the LG 25UM57 of only 287 millimeters is one of the shortest.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Only Mega Contrast Dynamic Contrast Ratio

This PC monitor has a Mega Contrast dynamic contrast ratio, which is the most commonly found dynamic contrast ratio on comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The LG 25UM57 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar spec and age to the 25UM57 do have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Wortmann AG 2235W[plb_2872969_price], the Asus VK248H[plb_2969185_price], or the AOC I2360PQ[plb_3032059_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most LCD screens of a similar age and spec to the 25UM57 do not have a built-in camera. The LG 25UM57 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other PC screens which also have a built-in camera including the Asus VK248H[plb_2969185_price] which is also cheaper.

Not 3D Compatible

Most medium monitors that were released more than a year ago are not 3D compatible. The LG 25UM57 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the 25UM57 do not have an integrated card reader. The LG 25UM57 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This LCD screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

When compared to other similar spec PC screens that were released around the same time as the 25UM57, the LG 25UM57's annual energy consumption of 111 kilowatt hours is one of the highest.

3 Other reasons to consider the LG 25UM57

Released Over a Year Ago

This flatpanel monitor has been on the market for over a year.

LCD Display Type

The LG 25UM57 has an LCD display type which is better than most PC monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it. Most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as it have an LED display type.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display and we think the Asus VN247HA[plb_1473074_price] which has better reviews; or the Samsung S24E450DL[plb_2963719_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If the display type of this flatpanel monitor is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer G277HL[plb_3029910_price] (LED and higher rated) or the DELL E2314H[plb_2095841_price] (LED and cheaper).
