Koman, South Africa. 22 December 2016

Bought this monitor for myself for Xmas (cause I've been a good boy all year) and I am very pleased with the quality. The initial setup was tricky with my iMac as the resolution was not displaying to full 2560X1080. I downloaded and bought a piece of software that got the screen working at full capacity - SwitchResX (R230.00).

Justin, South Africa. 18 November 2016

Amazing monitor! The ultra wide aspect ratio should become the new standard because of the benefits in productivity, gaming, and movies. The screen is the best that I have looked at in terms of image quality, clarity, colour reproduction, and motion smoothness. An absolute must for gamers!

T., South Africa. 10 April 2017

Probably the best value in this price bracket.

The ultra wide comes in quite handy with tons of room for many tabs on your browser and increases immersion in games substantially. The 21:9 wide aspect ratio does not work well on ALL games, but does so on most. Only AAA game that does not display properly that I've found so far is Overwatch.

Panel is good quality and the response rate is good enough even for FPS games.

Just note that if you use HDMI you will only get 60Hz. You need to use the display port and enable Freesync on the monitor settings before you can put it on 75Hz.
Works on both Nvidea and AMD graphics cards though.

Matthew, South Africa. 19 December 2016

I've had this monitor just over 2 weeks now and absolutely loving it, clear picture quality and no glare which was my biggest issue with my past screens. Whether I'm gaming online and need the quick response rate and black reproduction or multitasking and editing vidoe's this screen is an absolute beast.

Rod, South Africa. 17 April 2017

Upgraded from the 25in LG wide format and am very happy. My gaming is way more engaging and I have freesync so no more tearing during action scenes. Lots of customisation options and after a few mins of playing around...it's perfect for my needs. Much better than 27 inch HD monitors which only offer 1900x1080...this one gives you 2560x1080 so you get better peripheral vision and better detail.

Reenen, South Africa. 9 March 2017

Ultra wide is amazing. You think it's amazing for games... but it's even better for work. Excel, emails, everything.

I have 2 complaints: 1st coming from me being bad at research. *THIS IS NOT A 144hz monitor!*. It is higher than 60 (75 to be exact).

2nd is just that the black is not very black (you can customize how black you want it).

I highly recommend the 29 above the 25 (the extra size is worth it absolutely!).

Iaian, South Africa. 17 February 2017

Fantastic monitor. Great image quality for photo editing. Also works well for gaming. Built in speakers are also a plus. The aux jack also means you can add external speakers if you need to.

Eugene, South Africa. 30 November 2016

I struggled with LG Ultrawides at first because connecting to an iMac is different depending on whether you get the 25", the 29" or the 34". I first got the 25" inch and it only has HDMI ports in the back. These will not work with iMac . HDMI does not support 2560 by 1080 ( on imac anyway ) so the picture is stetched. However the 29" comes with a DisplayPort. This is good for Imac users. You can get a mini DisplayPort to regular DisplayPort from Likqage in Cape Town and you will have instant success. Full wide 2560 res.
The monitor itself is very nice. Its been a revolution for my work flow. I use a lot of music writing software as well as the adobe suite for artwork. Really loving all the real estate. Amazing.
