12 Reasons For

According to sales data from Amazon, the 29UC88 is one the fastest selling flatpanel monitor currently available for purchase.

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.

Robust

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 Reviews for Its PC Screens

On average LG medium monitors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all PC displays manufactured by LG.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG 29UC88 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the 29UC88.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC Q2963PQ[plb_3668409_price], the Benq Zowie XL2411Z[plb_3761442_price], and the Asus BE24AQLB[plb_3194464_price] is also worth considering.
