Rated 5 out of 5 by from 25" 21:9 Ultrawide monitor - great deal I bought this monitor to permit side-by-side windows on the same screen, and it works great. It came right up on Windows 10 - I ddin't even load the drivers or split-screen software. I don't use it for gaming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gaming Monitor I bought this monitor several months ago, and it still amazes me. The graphics are excellent. I love the fact that it has a gaming mode. I love the space I now have. I use it in unison with another LG monitor, and the space I have is amazing! Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real estate. I bought this monitor for the real estate. I wanted a larger monitor for doing post production video work that did not require the same space as a TV monitor and this fits the bill perfectly. After mounting it on a VESA arm it's my favorite setup to date. The price is right too!

What type of HDMI is do these inputs support?  1.1, 1.2, 1.3a, 1.4a or 2.0? I hear that the older HDMI cant support more than 24fps so 60 hertz would be kinda useless. I need to make sure i can shoot 60fps trough the hdmi so i can match the 60 Hertz.
