What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from On screen control not working(split screen) I bought the monitor for the feature of split screen but the software does not work and it does not recognize the monitor, all other options are disabled. I tried contacting the support but i did not get any help. I tried installing different versions of software(Win_OSC_2.82, Win_OSC_2.50, Win_OSC_1.39). Otherwise monitor is just like any other monitor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV Great for watching BluRay and Xbox1 gaming. Only thing i would like are some buttons because the remote is smaller than my phone. Just received info to get a free remote for the new features but it says the code is invalid. Would still recommend though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality monitor I bought this for work and love it. I do some graphic design and often have multiple windows open on my desktop. It is great for that. It also has great clarity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I wanted! The 29" ultra wide screen provided me with everything I wanted and expected and at a nice price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great non-4k monitor for a great price This monitor is wonderful. Supports both HDMI and USB-C (provided a DATA-capable cable - Apple cables don't do data) Graphic designers that I purchased these monitors for said that they really love these monitors because they show the grey's exceptionally well. Other sub-$200 monitors that we've purchased in the past don't show all grey's that well, this monitor seems to. While it's not a super high end monitor with the full color gambit and such, for the price this monitor is a great deal! The reason this is getting 4 stars out of 5 is because contacting LG support was an absolute nightmare. Terrible support (unknowledgeable support tech) and terrible chat service (been on hold as number 1 in the queue for about 4 hours now ... I think I should give up)

what is the USB-C used for? Can I connect a USB powered soundbar to this?

Asked by: Borzman
The USB Type-C port on this LG 29" Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS LED Monitor (29" Diagonal), Model # 29UM59A-P is about the same size as the Micro-B USB port. It is reversible and you don't have to worry about plugging it in upside down, it will function both ways. It allows for bi-directional power, it's backward compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. As of March 2017, Intel had been testing it to deliver a new USB Audio standard using USB-C as a potential replacement for the 3.5mm audio jack. Regrettably, we do not have enough information on the USB powered SoundBar that you are inquiring about to advise you if it will work with this monitor. You may want to consult your Sound Bar's manufacturer for advice...^IFV

Is It possible to connect.. For example an Xbox via HDMI to HDMI and connect my laptop HDMI to USB type c port of the monitor? Would that work? Would i get both visuals?

Asked by: Preach
You can connect the Xbox thru HDMI to HDMI connection. Just make sure that the Xbox is not HDCP 2.2 compliance as this monitor is not. You can connect the laptop on the monitor, but it’s not guaranteed for you to get a display, it will depend on the adapter or cable that you will use. And if you want to get those two devices on the screen at the same time, its not possible since the monitor doesn’t have PBP (Picture by Picture) Option. For further assistance, please give us a ring at 1-800-243-0000. ^AC

Does the model number without the a at the end (29UM59-P) is the same monitor?

Asked by: Rehan
There isn't a model that has a model number that is different from the LG 29" Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS LED Monitor (29" Diagonal), Model # 29UM59A-P. That might have been a typo where the "A" was inadvertently omitted...^IFV
