Rated 5 out of 5 by Tuan S. Absolutely love this monitor
I had two 27 inch monitors and this LG ultra wide replaced them. I really like the new monitor and it's better than having two monitors.
The screen and colors look brilliant. Was easy to install. The provided software works flawlessly. Really like the joystick and it's very easy to use. I have nothing negative about this monitor.
I wish there was a control to switch input source without having to go over several levels of menu. But that's only a minor issue.
In future I will check LG before I buy any other monitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DavidLL WOW is all I can say
When I first saw the Curved version of this Monitor I quickly fell in love with the 21:9 Screens. Based on what I could afford I went with the 34UM65-P. Not One Regret. I had a TV and 2 Monitors prior, this Monitor Rocks. I am able to split the screen into 3 screens as if I had 3 Monitors. It is a beautiful display, I love being able to watch newer movies at 21:9, it fills the whole screen, No Bars. This Monitor even has its own speakers which are ok if you don't have any speakers. Now onto Gaming, I have a 760 video card and everything from BF4, Crysis 3 to Titanfall works Perfectly filling the whole screen, very smooth, no noticeable lagging. I went from a 2ms Monitor to this 5ms and truthfully I cannot see a difference. Maybe it is the Awe of this big screen. All games mentioned I am able to set them to the Highest settings at 2560 x 1080. Doing the Math, I was looking at getting another 3 monitor type setup but I am so glad I had this option for around the same cost of the 3 monitors. Again, No Regrets. If you can afford the 34UM95-P or the Curved 34UC97-S Great, but in my opinion, this is the best monitor for the price. You could get two of these for what the 34UC97-S cost. Oh, I highly recommend only connecting this Monitor to a Gaming card by a Display Port Cable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Attica This monitor is great quality for price.
This monitor is an excellent choice for anyone who works on Spreadsheets and routinely uses multiple windows while completing their tasks. The colour and resolution are vivid and very satisfactory for the price we paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr Rick Ultrawide makes for a great monitor
The LG 25UM65 is a beautiful HD monitor. The split screen ability is easy to use and offers viewing options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Noff I love the split screen feature.
This monitor worked out so well, that I bought a second one. I was considering dual monitors when I saw this one. I wanted to run concurrent applications and interact between them both. At the time of purchase, I didn't realize that these monitors didn't support a VGA connection which is all that my old PC would support. Also, the split screen software had issues with adapters. So, I had to install a new video card. This wasn't a big deal and I now use a HDMI connection. Works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lance.Legacy Multi-Tasking Made Easy
This monitor was purchased for work. I do a lot of different things and utilize a number of different reports at the same time. My original thought when I upgraded my computer was to go to dual monitors. When i saw the LG 21:9 Ultrawide Monitor I jumped at the chance.
This makes life so much easier - instead of going from one monitor to the other, I can use the split screen and look at both things directly in front of me.
The picture comes in clear and I can change quickly between programs I'm working on.
The only downside of this monitor is if you like to listen to music while you work, you'll want to invest in some different speakers as the speakers on this monitor sound terrible.
If you're a multi-tasker this monitor will make your life easier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Packy LG has another winner!
Awesome monitor! As someone who spends 40-50 hours a week in front of a computer screen using various CAD/Modeling/Programming software a good monitor is essential for me. Especially since many of those hour are spent dealing with precise 3D models. I was looking for a new monitor setup for my new engineering computer build. I came across this monitor at my local electronics store on sale. Having used many LG optical drives in 20 years of building computers I decided to try this monitor out. I was not disappointed! I ended up going back to the store and purchasing two more of these for a total of three.
First, the non-raised edges on the top and sides of the monitor help reduce eye strain especially when using a multiple monitor setup, and it give the picture a nice smooth, clean look. Second the IPS is amazing these monitors look great no matter what the viewing angle, you can almost be sitting completely to the side of the monitor and still not have any picture distortion what so ever. Third with having nearly double the resolution of a standard HD monitor text looks sharp and images clear. I have these monitors running off an AMD FirePro 8 GB Video card off the Display ports. Their response time is amazingly quick.
Since these monitors looked so good running off my computer I decided to go ahead and hook up a Blu-ray player and I was not disappointed. Netflix and Amazon prime videos look sharp and crystal clear. The first time I played a Blu-ray on one of these was like experiencing HD technology for the first time again. The video almost comes alive off the screen it’s so clear. Colors are deep and robust. Blacks are BLACK and whites are vibrant and bright. Not dull like on most HD monitors. DVDs look great as long as you are in standard 16:9 mode and not ultra wide. Which was expected since DVDs are not HD content to begin with and you can only stretch those 480 lines so far before noticing.
The interface is very user friendly and the 5-way joy stick located on the bottom of the monitor is very responsive, but not overly so to where the user is going to inadvertently change something they didn’t want to.
The split screen feature is nice for being able to view from two different sources at the same time. The 4-way split is cool too, but the 25 inch is a little too small for it really to be useful.
Speakers are better than most built-ins and even with volume all the way there isn’t any distortion with everyday listening. For music and movies though I opted to hook the 3.5mm output jack to my A/V receiver to take advantage of digital surround sound coming from their respective sources into the monitor through the HDMI and Display ports.
The only thing that would make this monitor perfect is if there was an IR sensor and they could be controlled from the Quick Remote feature on my LG smart phone.
I highly recommend this monitor to anyone who spends a lot time in front a screen. As soon as my budget allows I plan on trading these in for the 34 inch models to take better advantage of the 4-way split screen!

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.
