Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all LG flatpanel monitors and also specifically for LG medium monitors and found that in both cases LG had good ratings compared to other brands.

Chart

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on medium monitors that were released around the same time as it.

We compared all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think a cheaper PC display such as the iiyama XB2779QS-W1[plb_1954340_price] or you might consider a better rated PC display such as the AOC I2757F[plb_1402268_price], and the LG 24GM77[plb_2470022_price] are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the 29UM65 have between one and three HDMI ports, including the LG 29UM65 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Color Gamut

When compared to other comparable spec LCD screens that have been available for around the same time as the 29UM65 that we have assessed, the LG 29UM65's color gamut of 100 percent is one of the largest. LCD screens that were released around the same time as the 29UM65 have color gamuts of between 62% and 120%.

Chart Edit

Short

With a height of only 328.2 millimeters, the LG 29UM65 is quite short compared to most of the other PC displays of this age and type. Across all the medium monitors that were released more than two years ago the heights range from 41mm to 4,800mm, and the average height is 380mm.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most LCD screens of this spec and age do not have a built-in speaker. The LG 29UM65 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth also looking at other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker including the Benq BL3200[plb_2590821_price] or the Samsung S27D590[plb_2243830_price], or the LG 29EB73[plb_1599155_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 29UM65 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the 29UM65 are also not 3D compatible.

PC displays which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Philips 278G4DHSD/94[plb_1499355_price], or the Asus VG248QE[plb_1529549_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most LCD screens of a comparable age and spec to the 29UM65 do not have a built-in camera. The LG 29UM65 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The LG 29UM65 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors that came out more than two years ago 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 DELL U2413[plb_1565290_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

The width is like having two monitors side by side
Everyone is gonna want one of these. Hands down
Colors look excellent
Screen split software works well
Got it on a perfectly timed 50 off deal which made it an even better value
Desk space Where'd it go
Only comes with a HDMI cable
Not a con, but make sure you know what resolutions through which media your gpu supports. 2560 1080 worked through HDMI on mine, even though the monitors instructions say use DVI-D dual link
2560 1080 is a difficult resolution to work with in Split screen 1280 1080, which Windows does not have
While the bezel is really small, the screen has 10mm where the monitor will not fill, making it a total of 13mm, on the borders. Bottom border is 20mm. So it is not ideal for multi-monitor
