What People Are Saying

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great monitor I picked up this monitor becasue I was debating on a 21:9 vs. dual monitor set-up. I have a small desk so this option worked well for me. This gave me just enough real estate to have multiple windows open. If I had the money I would've gone with the 34" version. June 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great monitor for the busy person. The monitor was easy to install. I haven't run the software for it yet. It suits me fine as it is. Great for displaying tutorials along side of your program and still being able to see both at a good size. Be sure your video card can handle the resolution requirements. May 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 The Best LED monitor for movie I purchased this LG's wide IPS LED monitor as my first LG product. This is amzaing product i have ever had. I really love its big wide clear screen! This really suits for gaming and entertaining. Due to its big screen, i can do multiple works within at once. One bad thing is, you may feel narrow because its WIDE. Price is i think fair enough, not that expensive, but not cheap. How mucy you pay is how quality products are. May 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Monitor Bought it on sale. It's worth the sale price. Light bleed in corners on dark screen. March 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great looking monitor - but at a cost Picked this up using some reward zone certificates and gift card from the holidays. I will say it is one of the better quality monitors...after a little tweaking of the settings. PROS: Quality is good, brightness is good in brightly lit rooms, colors are vibrant, makes a huge difference when working for the screen space, text clear crisp. Viewing angles are nice and wide on this IPS panel. anti-glare screen (really more preference than a pro) CONS: price $$$$ for this, Only certain media programs will play movies or files at full screen. Otherwise you will have the black bars on the sides of the screens and then it defeats the purpose of being the monitor. The monitor speakers are very tin sounding, but if you're spending this kind of money on a monitor, chances are you have better speakers you using externally. Unable to adjust the height of the monitor, only tilt angle. USB hub slightly glitchy when using with macbook air, but on windows, no issues....could be a firmware thing or just my model. ***Word to the wise....if you plan on using this with a macbook pro / air.....the mini displayport adapter must support 2560x1080....and for mini displayport to hdmi or DVI, I don't believe majority of them will support anything higher than 1920x1080. I'm using a mini displayport to displayport adapter and that works fine @ 2560x1080 (about $20 for the adapter and then you'll need to buy the displayport cable). The colors for sRGB won't be as accurate you would get on something like a thunderbolt monitor or several dell ultrasharps, but for $449 + reward zone certs or gift cards, this is definitely worth a look. The packaged software to me at least is pointless, for split-screen functionality or the color tweaking. Overall, please with my purchase. It's not for a hardcore gamer and some photo editors/ designers might find the color accuracy not as tight as other monitors in this price range. Would I spend retail price on it of $600 personally, probably not, but on sale @ $449 with a couple of reward zone certificates or a gift card, definitely worth looking at against other IPS monitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Niche Monitor for a somewhat steep price. I've been looking for a 21:9 monitor for a while now but I wasn't ready yet to plop down 700$+ for one. Then the LG 29EA73 came along basically a cheaper version of the LG 29EA93 but with the same exact 2560x1080 panel. Setup was fairly straight forward out of the box. 2 Philips screws to attach the vertical stand to the monitor then 1 massive flat head screw to secure that vertical stand to the base. Included in the box was 2 nearly worthless CD's, cause they failed to launch at all running Windows 8 but claim to be the driver and split screen software both of which you download online, a couple manuals with your warranty info and how to use the monitor and etc, power brick with a fairly long power cord, a fairly short DVI-D cable and an audio cable to hook the speakers up to your computer. I was a bit disappointed in the included DVI-D cord. I didn't measure it but I'm willing to guesstimate that it's 5ft or less which would've been stretching it from my video card to it if I didn't have a longer DVI-D from the monitor this was replacing. The design is pretty standardish monitor design lol there are only so many ways you can dress up a screen but with that being said it's not gaudy or anything to look at. It's a rectangle with a nice curved black plastic back with a ton of ports on the back. I don't remember all the ports it has on the back but what I can tell you for sure is it has a pretty useless USB Hub on the back. Presumably LG added this in so you can attach a USB drive with pictures instead of having to hook it into your computer but because the USB ports are directly in the back they are extremely awkward to get at in my current setup so I'd rather just throw my USB drive into my computer. You can maybe use the USB ports as a charger for your phone but honestly that just adds clutter to my desk and I'm a bit OCD about that so yeah the USB Hub to me at least is pointless. It has a pretty lackluster stand that only tilts no height adjustment. You may want to keep that in mind cause this monitor is pretty short so without extra height you may be looking down onto it which can make the picture look worse and strain yourself and your eyes while doing so. It has the standard holes for VESA 100mm so you can always get a new monitor stand or wall mount it if you want/need. As for the screen itself, well it is something to behold. I'm not into all the techno babble that real review sites do with monitors it's just beyond me about color accuracy and black levels and w/e but to me the screen just out of the box looks gorgeous enough. I did adjust the color a bit cause the light was a bit blue for my taste but yeah the games and movies on the screen looked great to my subjective eyes. Most likely depending on how far away you sit it'll fill your entire peripheral vision or get close. Blu-Rays look amazing cause they just fill the entire screen with no black bars anywhere and the image just looks natural cause most modern films are recorded at near this aspect ratio. Playing PC games is another joyful experience. About 90% of the games I tried that were made between about 2009 to present picked up this resolution without any problems at all and having a wider field of view really made the games that more engrossing for me in the games that did have adjustable field of views. For the games that didn't work or pick up the resolution running them in windowed fullscreen or borderless mode made it work. Productivity with this monitor is alright but not as good as a dual monitor display. It just doesn't have the pixels. With the screen splitting software from LG I was able to set Microsoft word to 1920x1080 and then iTunes at 640x1080 for typing out long essays for school but that was about the only real productivity I tried with the monitor. I mainly use my desktop for gaming and Blu-Rays. The only negative thing really about the display or content for it is 99.9999999999% of youtube videos are shot in 1920x1080 so that's the exact size you'll get in full screen mode with this monitor with fairly substantial black bars on either side. In conclusion this is really a great monitor. BUT with that being said it isn't gonna replace your dual monitor display setup by any means you're only getting 640 more pixels of width over a standard 1080p monitor and that's it. If you're a movie or PC gaming buff I highly recommend trying this monitor if you can splurge on it cause if I'm honest the 450-600$ price depending on if you can find them for sale is a bit steep but it is something else to have a single monitor fill your entire peripheral vision no pesky bezels or screen splits in the middle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dual Input Feature is amazing! This is one of the best monitors our office has purchased. Great resolution, and multiple view options make this an elite product. Works great with both PC and MAC. Great for viewing documents, graphs, movies and gaming! January 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by the resolution is unbelievable The monitor was easy to connect to the PC we had. The speakers are very loud. The sound and picture were worth the price. January 6, 2014

Answer: 
It works for me after trying to different cables. I learned from another chat room that you must use the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter when the resolution gets this high. It needs that extra power.

Answer: 
The two monitors mentioned are very similar in their design. The primary differences lie in the accessories and the USB ports. Both monitors have 4 USB ports. The EA73P has one Upstream USB 3.0 port, 2 Downstream USB 3.0 ports, and one Downstream USB 2.0 port; the EA93P has one Upstream USB 3.0 port and 3 Downstream USB 3.0 ports. The only other difference, listed on the specification sheets, is the included MHL and USB cables packaged with the EA93P monitor. This information can be seen with the specification sheets listed on our website at http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-29....
