Hello, readers! Recently, we were brought to the office of the monitor LG 29UM65-P. This was my first encounter with a widescreen monitor, and I was very interested to understand and clarify the issue: “Is it better than the usual classic monitor, which I’m so used?”
Well, the feeling I had two kinds of somewhere to score points in its favor my old LG L1730SLG, but somewhere in our guinea 29UM65-P. Should start with the characteristics of the device that you understand what we’re dealing with.
Appearance and equipment LG 29UM65-P
Well, after we got acquainted with the characteristics of this monitor, it’s time to talk about his appearance, and that the same that put it in a shipping box from LG. To begin, a few words about the assembly of the device. Included with the monitor, we obtain:
- clear stand and bolts for fixing;
- HDMI – Cable;
- VGA – cable
- power supply;
- CD with software;
LG 29UM65-P – monitor made in the original style of the Cinema Screen Design, because of what is practically invisible frame around the display matrix. Also, stand to the monitor is clear and has the effect of “floating screen”. Unfortunately, the monitor has a landscape orientation only and can not be adjusted for height. You can only change the angle of it. Floor display frosted, so you can not worry about glare or reflections on the screen.
On the back of the monitor can detect a set of connectors, two HDMI 1.4, one DVI-D, one Display Port 1.2, PC – Audio input and headphone output. There are also special units for wall mounting.
I would also like to talk about replacing the menu operation keys on the joystick is located in the middle below the display. At first I was very skeptical of this kind of replacement. Still, much familiar and comfortable various adjustments to customize the monitor with the buttons where you know which one is responsible for what. After the first day of using the joystick, I have a lot of unflattering remarks about him. The joystick is centered on the monitor, in its lower part.
By the way, pretty good location, but it was damn strange having to change settings using the crane. I constantly or accidentally coming out of my desired menu or choosing the wrong item, and once accidentally turned off the monitor. But the next – the day everything was fine. So do not call this item catastrophic, but also points to the positive side will not give. Although noticed that LG did a great job on the update of the menu settings to ensure maximum efficiency and ease of controlling the parameters of the monitor using the manipulator.
Functionality LG 29UM65-P and the experience of its use
Diagonal of the monitor 29 inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels at once make it clear that this monitor was made not only for comfortable operation, but also for fun and pleasure for your favorite movie or TV series. Although, at first, I was embarrassed to work for him, because the aspect ratio of the display 21: 9 is radically different from the familiar to me – 4: 3 and 16: 9. But I decided this question is very simple and effective. For example, you can conveniently situated on the 1st working screen at once and opening a browser and your file in Word-e. If you just use multiple windows seem a little, then we are considering the monitor is a series Ultrawide and equipped with specialized software 4-Screen Split, which with a single click will divide the screen into multiple segments (up to four) for the most convenient location of the windows on the screen. Also, a great help in terms of multi-tasking is the technology of Dual Link-up, which allows you to connect to the monitor, two video source to simultaneously display images from both devices (PC, camera, smartphone, Blu-ray player, etc.) on one screen.
Describing the functionality of the monitor is worth noting that if you, for example, an old PC or laptop, there is a very high probability of not getting the maximum resolution of the monitor. It happened when I decided to check the image quality on my old laptop. The most I got was of 1920 x 1080. So if you want to get away from this monitor Ultra-quality, it is worth to take care of more powerful hardware.
Touch of a button, the monitor can be switched to read. This mode has been specifically designed to create the ideal conditions for reading documents or books by reducing the use of blue, which protects the eyes from fatigue.
And another 2 points that I would like to talk about is the lack of screen flicker monitor and built-in speakers. The Monitor LG 29UM65-P uses a new technology of backlighting, it is designed to reduce the effect of flicker, which causes eye fatigue. This technology contributes to the almost total exclusion of noticeable flicker on the screen, which is why working with LG 29UM65-P can be longer, and your eyes do not get tired.
As for the built-in monitor speakers, they have absolutely not impressed. When you install the slider volume in excess of 60%, the sound quality is unbearable, completely lost the depth and volume of the sound, and there are small distortions like in the old TV. But at moderate settings and in the absence of a replacement in the form of high-grade speakers, the presence of built-in speakers is definitely an added bonus with this device.
Conclusions – LG 29UM65-P
To sum up this review, I can safely say that the monitor LG 29UM65-P – this is an interesting device with an advanced high performance, which will increase your multitasking by using up to four working windows on one desktop and connectivity of two devices to the monitor. In fact, the only one monitor can often be replaced by a simple multi-display configuration for a workstation programmer, engineer, designer, designer, etc. But normal user monitor can give the possibility to use multiple programs without having to switch between windows. The monitor is perfect for viewing movies in the best quality and amazing color palette. The only problem that may arise in game – unfortunately, not all support such a great solution, but you can be sure of the quality of the picture in the game 100 percent.
And to the question, which sounded at the beginning of this article, I can not answer this way: “Widescreen monitors can now be useful to perform a range of tasks. But there is still a lot of questions and unsolved problems which have not yet given such monitors to enter the mass market. Sufficiently high cost of such decisions also deters consumers from buying widescreen monitors, leaving them narrow profile professional niche uses.”
