What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 29WK500-P is a step up and almost a home run Overall the display is a good value as an entry level 21:9 monitor. I would have preferred the 32" variant of this monitor but space constraints caused by the stand not allowing monitor to be placed lower than 3 3/4" from my desk I was unable to do so. A height adjustment to allow a min. distance of 2" to allow for air flow would be welcome. The second and most annoying issue is the stupid control joystick and the even worse on screen software setting controls. The software suite is laughable in it's non-functionality and the joystick is touchy as heck and very limited in function as well. A bank of control buttons along the right or bottom edge would be superior. I am sure the engineers were "very excited" to install this annoyance almost as much as engineers loved the stupid laptop pointer button of years past. I do hope the cheaper joystick allowed the LG CEO more money to buy golf balls (Grinning) because I cannot see where this "feature" can be considered a user benefit. Aside from those issues the monitor meets my needs and the display is what I expected for the price point as long as I don't have to change the display settings I'll get by.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Macbook air FAIL I purchased the monitor to use with a macbook air. I am using an HDMI to mDP converter by insignia that I have used successfully before with standard monitors. The resolution is stuck to 1080P standard width and I have spent hours trying to figure out how to get the proper resolution. No discussion in LG forums that I have found, no driver that I can download and no explanations suggestions to pursue. I'm now 300EU poorer and on my way to buy a new monitor. I purchased this monitor to increase productivity, ended up wasting a morning.

I just picked up one of these monitors and it almost looks like it has a screen protector on it that should be peeled off after unboxing. Has anyone peeled this off?

Asked by: KenKo
That sound like a thin film that is put on the screen of the LG 29 Inch Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS LED Monitor with AMD FreeSync (29" Diagonal), Model # 29WK500-P that protects the screen from being scratched during transportation.
