Rated 3 out of 5 by timpdx Goes to sleep almost immediately
The monitor goes to sleep no matter what power settings I have on my computer. While watching a movie...2 minutes...sleep mode. As soon as I unplug the monitor, my windows 8 laptop will revert to normal (meaning it does not sleep for an hour). Its a monitor problem, not a windows problem. It only happens when I plug in the LG. Otherwise its a good looking screen at a good price. But the powering off issue takes away from really loving this monitor. (tried all the settings in the menu on the monitor, nothing works) Its so annoying that this may go back to the store, I have a week left to do so. LG has no support.

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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Danny40 Wide screen makes me more productive
I love this wide screen monitor, no more swapping between programs to see information between the two. Now I can place programs (i.e. Browser and Quicken) side by side and get what I need. Sure I can extend my laptop display to the monitor, which I still do, yet the laptop screen is small leaving me squinting at it. I’d rather be able to put the 2 programs side by side on a monitor, which this product allows me to do! Graphics, video streaming, and resolution are great. I would have given 5 stars for everything, yet the 1 star was left off because I would have liked the monitor to have more height.

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.
