Rated 5 out of 5 by Boosty Nice Monitor
I bought this as a secondary monitor for it's Big Brother the 34UM95. It work flawlessly as my second monitor so I can monitor CPU temps, VGA temps, Chat..etc while gaming on my main screen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SBN75 This is an excellent value
Initially, I was going to set up a dual monitors display. Then I saw this beautiful monitor while I was shopping for 2 regular 16:9 monitors. This monitor fit my need perfectly. 2 16:9 monitors would be too wide for my need, and plus the dual monitor stand, the final price would be way above the price for one of this monitor. Been using this monitor for over 5 months and it has been flawless!

Couldn't find the software on LG website. If your laptop doesn't have an optical drive, make sure you can somehow get the software before you buy it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Marketing2014 Split Screen Should Be Great....But
I have had this monitor 26UM65 for a couple of weeks now and cannot get the split screen option to work.. I get an error message that the split screen dll file is missing, however support only recommended I reinstall the software, which I did 4 times, still the same message.
This was the main reason I purchased this monitor. Real bummer..

Rated 5 out of 5 by RC Replacement buy
Was looking at new monitors to replace a 24 inch 1080p one that I had. Came across this and picked it up along with upgrading my video card from a Nvidia 670GTX to a 770GTX. Couldn't be happier. I use it for gaming BF4 but also some work related, and while having my DirecTV plugged into HDMI and computer plugged in thru the Display Port. Works very well

The resolution, clarity and speed of this monitor is exactly what I expected from this monitor. Love the fact that ambient light doesn't glare the surface. The menu control took a bit to get used to using the four-way button but that's a minor issue. Judging from the reviews giving it low marks, some seem not aware of the limitations of their hardware. Works perfectly with the new MacPro as it supports the monitor's maximum resolution. A MacBook Pro from 2011 will obviously not work and it isn't an issue Apple needs to 'fix'...only a new graphic card will.

Rated 1 out of 5 by hbbrown So Far Not So Good!!!
Purchased the monitor today and not impressed at all. Mac install software installed ok. (Read all manuals first and you will find out how to install the software) However you can't enable the split screen mode. Might just be OS X 10.9. Macbook pro retina. Tried to get support from LG's website and register product. Found that site hasn't been updated (This product can't be found "25UM65"). I have it plugged into the HDMI port which the monitor does work and at the highest resolution. Picture is grainy and text is terrible. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Myloonatek Impacting!
My life is all about technology. I do my best to look for ways to take it to the extreme and push it to the next level.
My work therefore becomes an important part of my life. Recently I added this product to my list of tools that help me push technology to its limits and with the Screen Splitter functionality.
With my new LG product, I am able to do that and positively impact my abilities to even a newer level as I am able to instantly work with many windows open to better my efficiency when I do my research and daily tasks at a click of a button.
Being an engineer, my job is only as fun as you make it. I make it exceptional each day with the tools I have and my freedom to explore with the use of my tools at hand.
Good Job LG! This one is a out of the park hit for me, cant wait till I get the 38" model.
