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.

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!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ramon Good monitor, but could be better
I am using it as the second monitor of my notebook LG with Windows 8.1. Unfortunately the colors on the notebook's screen are much more beautiful than the 29UM65 monitor...

Rated 5 out of 5 by SodaFish A great alternative to 2 separate monitors
For my job, I have to be constantly looking at and updating a spreadsheet. As you can imagine, it's very annoying to always be alt+tabbing between it and my other current application. So I was shopping for 2 computer monitors to make my work life easier, and I discovered this beast. I'm glad I bought this instead of 2 separate monitors. I can have two screens open side-by-side-without issues; the colour reproduction is just great for me (I'm not an enthusiast, just a casual gamer and full-time Internet marketer); there's plenty of features on this monitor etc. One tip, I pulled my hair out trying to figure out why my monitor wasn't displaying correctly. I bought a new video card, a new HDMI cable, researched for driver updates, etc. As it turns out, because of the high resolution on this monitor, it requires a special type of DVI cable called "dual link DVI". Hope that helps.

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.
