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!

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.

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.
