8 Reasons For

LG Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays

On average LG medium monitors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all LCD screens built by LG.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 29UC88-B has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other medium monitors that have been available for the last year.

We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Asus VN279H which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

The narrowest vertical viewing angle of medium monitors that have been available for the last year is 15° and the widest is 180°. With a vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees, the 29UC88-B has one of the wider vertical viewing angles amongst comparable spec PC monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

With a horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees, the LG 29UC88-B has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles amongst medium monitors of this age. The average horizontal viewing angle of latest medium monitors is 170°, and the horizontal viewing angles range from -5° to 180°.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Color Gamut

The smallest color gamut of PC displays that were launched in the last year is 68%, the largest is 110%, and the average color gamut is 82%. At 99 percent, the 29UC88-B has a fairly large color gamut compared to most of the other newly released comparable spec flatpanel monitors.

Chart Edit

2560 X 1080 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the LG 29UC88-B is 2560 x 1080. That's 33% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). The worst resolution of all PC screens that were launched in the last year is 640 x 350 and the best is 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode

With a power consumption when in PowerSave mode of only 0.4 Watts, the 29UC88-B has a quite low power consumption when in PowerSave mode compared to most of the other new LCD screens. The lowest power consumption when in PowerSave mode of recently released LCD screens is 0.21W and the highest is 52W.

Chart Edit

Short

Across all the latest flatpanel monitors the heights range from 43mm to 3,000mm. At only 316.5 millimeters, the 29UC88-B is quite short compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 29UC88-B.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The 29UC88-B is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for the last year are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Acer GN276HL ($263.96), or the Benq Zowie XL2430.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 29UC88-B does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 29UC88-B also do not have a built-in camera.

Other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider include the Lenovo X1 ($174.93).

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The LG 29UC88-B does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other latest medium monitors also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens with an integrated card reader and we think the 2407WFP, or the 2408WFP both from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Slow Response Time

The response times of comparable spec LCD screens that were launched around the same time as the 29UC88-B range from 1ms to 20ms, and the average response time is 5.2ms. At 14 milliseconds, the 29UC88-B has a very slow response time compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 29UC88-B.
