LG 29UB55 overview

  • 1Description

The UB55 Series 29UB55-B 29" UltraWide LED IPS Monitor from LG is an ultra-wide monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio that allows you to split up the display into four sections for multitasking efficiency. It features a high resolution of 2560 x 1080 and comes equipped with a 250 cd/m2 brightness rating, and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, and 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Setup and configuration of the monitor is simple due to the DVI-D, DisplayPort, and two HDMI connectors. Once configured, the IPS technology allows you to view the display from nearly any angle as it supports 178° viewing angles on all sides. This version also comes with a stand that allows for pivot and tilt adjustments.

Widescreen Viewing
The 21:9 ratio is a suitable professional fit for software engineers, sound and video editors, and graphic designers. The widescreen seamlessly connects two separate work areas for easy comparison and multi-tasking on one monitor. Long-range panoramic viewing is full length, without any bezel in the middle or dragging cursors.

Please Note: 21:9 Full Screen or 2560 x 1080 resolution is dependent on content, device, interface or graphic card.
Optimal Productive Workspace with Microsoft Office
The 29-inch display with a 21:9 UltraWide Full HD (2560 x 1080) provides an efficient environment for using Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel, and OneNote. The 21:9 UltraWide Full HD shows 9 more columns compared to conventional 16:9 monitor in excel, allowing you to see all the contents in full view without scrolling to see hidden columns or rows and increasing your work efficiency.

Please Note: 21:9 Full Screen or 2560 x 1080 resolution may not work depending on content, device, interface or graphic card.
Maximized Ergonomics
The 29UB55's height adjustment feature allows up/down monitor adjustments for a comfortable work environment.
Dual-Link Up
Connect two devices to a single monitor with Dual Link-up that allows an HDMI + HDMI link. Collaborate with colleagues by simply connecting each other's devices to this single monitor to share and compare information. Freely show and control the screen while watching your partner doing the same on the opposite side of the monitor. No need to install annoying projectors in small rooms or worry if a conference room is occupied.

Please Note: Dual Link-up requires a specific combination of HDMI/DisplayPort/DVID (Dual link) connection with each device.
4-Screen Split
With its wide screen ratio, 4 programs can be opened on a single screen for at-a-glance comparison. The 4-Screen Split software includes an auto-fitting function. With a simple drag or a double click, a new window will automatically fit into the marginal room of the screen. The 21:9 screen's large space is a suitable environment for efficient multi-tasking, and has the ability to open and run an editing program and its source clip folder without minimization.

The size of the sub-screens, which can be split into 2 to 4 areas, are user-controlled. The 29UB55 is compatible with Mac and not only provides convenience but also productivity in a single click.

Please Note: 4-Screen Split software requires DVI-D (Dual Link), DisplayPort, or HDMI connection with Windows XP/Vista/7/8 or Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion)/10.8 (Mountain Lion)/10.9 (Maverick).
Flicker-Safe Technology
Protect your eyes from exhausting flickers and blue light emissions. LG's new Flicker-Safe technology reduces the flicker level to almost zero. Activate Reader Mode to minimize harmful blue light emissions with a simple touch of a hot-key while working, gaming, or watching movies without burdening your eyes.
Intuitive Control
The joystick allows for accurate menu control and analog sensitivity. With the fun control of a conventional joystick, its modern technology and design allows for simple control. The intuitive UI has no overlapping and an easy to understand menu selection.

    LG 29UB55 reviews

    29UB55-B 29" UltraWide LED Backlit UB55 Series Monitor is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely, Cheaper Widescreen Monitor I bought this monitor to make editing video in Premiere Pro easier and it's done exactly that. I was able to link this monitor with another widescreen LG monitor and essentially create a giant timeline that I can easily work in. I use a DisplayPort cable to connect the screen to my graphics card and so far so good. I don't notice any latency issues or discoloration; it's pretty much doing what I expected it to do and my eyes do not tire from looking at it for extended periods of time. The base of the monitor is well built and is quite sturdy. You can tilt the monitor up and down to adjust your for your viewing level. I do wish you could slide the monitor a tad bit higher, but I'm being knit-picky. Purchase this if you've been looking for a widescreen monitor at an affordable price. It's not the most glamorous display but it gets the job done really well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure joy for a year now Using a monitor with these specs simply means you already did your homework and made some conscious decisions. My experience over the past year is that this LG is awesome, didn't regret it for a split second. I prefer matte screens and I put the extra wide aspect ratio to good use for many practical reasons. One of the perks that I'm enjoying over and over is watching movies that use every pixel on the screen, it's just beautiful. For almost everything I do and care about with my Macs, this is one of my top choices and recommendations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome wide screen Perfect for word and excel side by side, crystal clear and solid performance in gaming. Star Wars Battlefront is now totally awesome. Using display port but HDMI works well also.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from just fine for your needs this is a good product. maybe not quality enought for picture color and correction for editing. it is my first time with a 21:9 screen but i really love having the extra length on the timeline. btw- mac book air 2014 requires the mini display to display cable. resolution will not upsize if you use the HDMI ports for some reason. Thanks again to B&H for helping me overcome this hurdle. k-
