At 73.66 centimeters, the LG 29UC97 has a quite big display diagonal compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been available for a similar time to the 29UC97.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Display Brightness

The average display brightness of PC screens of this type and age is 280 cd/m², and the display brightness range from 25 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m².

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the 29UC97, the LG 29UC97 does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to the 29UC97, the LG 29UC97 is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the LG 24MP47[plb_2768374_price], or the iiyama B2783QSU-B1[plb_3011412_price].

Other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to look at include the Benq SW2700PT[plb_2982141_price], or the DELL UP2715K[plb_2678878_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the LG 29UC97

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this LG LCD screen was released.

Two Thunderbolt Ports

The LG 29UC97 is a two thunderbolt port PC screen which is average compared to the other seven medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 29UC97 that we have assessed the number of thunderbolt ports of.

We compared this PC display to all the other 2 thunderbolt port LCD screens and we think because of it's better review score, the LG 34UC87[plb_2748624_price] is also worth considering.

LCD Display Type

The LG 29UC97 has an LCD display type which is better than most similar spec PC displays that are a comparable age to it. Most medium monitors that are a similar age to it have an LED display type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus VN247HA[plb_1473074_price].

If the display type of this medium monitor is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Philips 224E5[plb_1499773_price] (LED), or the AOC G2460VQ6[plb_3032738_price] (LED) which also has a higher rating.
