    Overview Monitor LG 29EA93

    Review LG 29EA93

    Widescreen monitors for a long time and have become part of our lives -16:10 aspect ratio screen first, and then the "cinematic" 16:9 become routine, and no one thinks of such things as "vertical layout of content on the screen," etc. - Video /games have long been designed for wide screen, which means that home systems will be equipped with just such models. But progress does not stand still, and now 16:9, it is not sufficient "widescreen" - came the new aspect ratio, 21:9. Since the first such "signs" we are today, and get acquainted.


    LG 29EA93 made in the same "frameless" design as a number of models of recent months - in particular, LG IPS237L . Here there are no protruding above the screen frame body, and off the display looks smooth matte surface, bordered by a thin frame. In fact, the frame around the picture here is much larger - about 1 cm, but you can see it only in the ON state, as it is covered with a protective glass screen itself.

    At the bottom of a serving plate, visually "maintenance" screen. It is made of black plastic with a textured surface, reminiscent of brushed metal. On it are the company logo, as well as badges and IPS LED. In the lower right corner to indicate it has menu buttons - they are marked gray are not eye-catching paint, but clearly distinguishable even at very low ambient light. Back - glossy white plastic with a slight bulge at the bottom.

    We have the ability to mount the monitor on a wall (VESA 100x100), but the connectors are arranged in such a way that the connected cables will have to make a niche in the wall (or have the display at a distance from it). From here there are video inputs: 2 x HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI. In addition, there is also a USB 3.0 hub with 3 ports USB, audio line in and headphone out. By the way, other than the headphones, the sound can be played back on the built-in speakers as well.

    Holder formed as an oval ring with a glossy metal surface. Plastic base, it has four small rubber feet to prevent slipping of the monitor on the table. Attached to the display stand with two screws, which you can then cover the decorative cap. Unfortunately, the stand allows you to adjust the angle of a screen (within -5 °.. 20 °) - or rotate around its axis or change the height of its location can not be (about the translation in portrait mode, for obvious reasons, we can not even mention). Connect tough enough to shake any noticeable screen will not work.

    Menu buttons sensor arranged on the bottom on the right side of the display. The power button is in the same place, a little apart from the general unit control buttons, and neither of them is the same (except for the presence of the power LED just above it - the light is bright enough red light during operation, but you can turn off the indicator in the monitor, ).

    The menu at LG 29EA93 is radically different from the others we've seen monitors and more like TV menu - rather nondescript small window with a lot of small items and icons here we see a stylish semi-transparent tape from the large easy to read icons.

    The first to go the main points - Adjust brightness, contrast, volume, built-in speakers, video input selection, as well as masshtabrovanie images (broad, movie, movies with subtitles, the original frame to full screen, 1:1). The following are advanced settings - in the Func can include eco-mode, use a hardware calibration mode (only available when using the firmware True ColorFinder) and select one of the picture modes ("user", "text", "Photo", etc. .). Under PIP can turn on the Picture-in-Picture, right there are all the necessary adjustments (choice involved in this mode inputs, the location of these images on the screen, etc.). Unfortunately, the user is not available in any combination of inputs, and only the chosen (or rather, 6 pairs like HDMI1 + DisplayPort, etc., with options such as HDMI1 + HDMI2 or HDMI + DVI available). Menu "Picture" allows you to adjust image sharpness, black level (available when connected via HDMI) and change the response time. From the color of the extended focus image adjustment - adjustment range (choice of three preset modes) Color Temperature - Warm / Medium / Cool / User (when the latter becomes available adjustment of each of the three primary colors separately), and change the hue and saturation for six colors. And in the last section of the menu and select "Settings", focused settings such as language selection menu, the sound source, disable sounds when navigating through the menus and the flashing activity monitor, enabling the use of standard DDC / CI and the lock menu.


    This model uses the AH-IPS matrix (made, of course, LG Display) diagonal of 29 "and an aspect ratio of 21:9. Her" native "resolution - 2560h1080 points claimed response time - 5 ms. Subjectively, it is still higher - lubrication of moving objects are moderate, the choice in the menu, "the average response time" they become a little less when you switch it to "high" minor artifacts appear in the form of a short light "loop", so that this setting is best left in the mean value.

    Since the screen on the LG 29EA93 matte, crystal effect is present, but is relatively weak, it can be seen only if you specifically look closely. Viewing angles - typical for this class of monitors, even at maximum deflection angles are practically no color distortion, brightness is reduced quite significantly.

    Ratio of 21:9 (or 2.33:1) is very close to the 2.39:1 anamorphic film images, which automatically makes it the ideal option for recent movies - the image is almost completely fills the screen, and no black bars above / below a user is not watching. However, there is a caveat - the band will appear when watching movies in the "old" 16:9 (on the sides of the image), but in recent times such content is almost gone - even cartoons have come to 2.39:1.

    The second version of the application screen - play. Any game with the movement in the horizontal plane (ie, shooters, racing, etc. - in other words, the genres in which the view up / down is not critical) gets a great review in the periphery, allowing you to better navigate the space and in the generally contributes to a more complete immersion in the game.

    When you work for LG 29EA93 PC can be used as a replacement for two-monitor configuration, but in this respect it is somewhat ambiguous. For example, in this case it is convenient to work with the timeline in the video or audio editor, the user can also open two windows at once, which greatly facilitates the work in multiple applications at the same time. The size of each such window is 1280h1080 pixels, which is enough for the whole browser or MS Word, but it is not enough for the graphic editor. The physical size of the two windows open at the same time is roughly comparable to a dual-monitor diagonal of 18 "(5:4 aspect ratio). Another caveat - when you look at different parts of the screen the user is looking at different angles (and even from different distances - so that the central part of the display will be a few inches closer to the eyes than the edges.) This creates a subjective feeling of "bulge" of the image, especially compared to the "classic" two-monitor system, where the displays are not in a straight line, but at a slight angle - "book" .

    By the way, if the standard of Windows on the location of several windows on the screen is not enough, you can use the proprietary utility from LG - SplitScreen, allowing quick and easy to bring to the desktop, and two, three, and four of the program - with a different layout, different working space for each, etc.

    The monitor is used to adjust the brightness using PWM flickering stops determined by the brightness of 70% or higher (~ 230 cd / m 2). It should be noted that the minimum brightness is relatively high - 66 cd / m 2, it does not leave much margin for adjusting this parameter to users who have to work in low ambient light or complete darkness. The maximum brightness is quite typical 269 cd / m 2, but with the uniformity of illumination, things are not the best way - the difference between the brightest (bottom left) and least bright (upper right) was 83 cd / m 2. However, given the size of the screen, this is not surprising.

    If you change the viewing angle brightness decreases evenly (horizontally) and is first reduced and then begins to rise again (vertical). Appreciable distortion of color reproduction was observed (except for the slight warming picture with a maximum deviation of horizontally).

    Glow-effect in this model is more than mild, gray glare when looking at a large angle diagonal are below average.

    "Leak" light is also very weak, can only see her backing off to maximum brightness and turning off the lights in the room - then on a black background are very noticeable weak spots in the lower left corner and the top of the screen (a little closer to the left). In normal use of the monitor, of course, is not visible.

    Mode "Custom" is as its name implies, to fine-tune the image. However, it should be noted that even at the factory setting, it produces high-quality image, and the average user is unlikely to have something in it to tune (except for the brightness, which is traditionally the default is set to maximum - it is better to reduce the values of 15-30%) . The color gamut of the monitor is 98.3% sRGB (73.4%

    Adobe RGB).

    In modes "Photo" and "Movie" setting is almost identical (with color temperature 6500K is fully compliant with almost the entire range), with one difference - in the "Photos" significantly improved image sharpness in the "Movie" - on the contrary, understated (which is why the image in Windows, especially the fonts looks frankly zamylennye - but it allows you to hide the compression artifacts in the video).Curiously, while the monitor menu setting "Sharpness" in both cases is the same (as the item itself can not be changed). In the "Game" color temperature soars to dizzying 10K and above, which is why the picture becomes very "cold", and the value range is reduced to 2.1 (in other modes gamma slightly overstated - to 2.3), which gives a little more bleak picture but allows you to get more information in the midtones.

    The test for color accuracy shows in general a very good result, significant deviations are observed only in dark areas where it is not critical. After calibration, the overall picture is even better than expected.

    The results

    LG 29EA93 - very unusual monitor, image proportions are clearly will appreciate not everyone, and they are not in demand in all tasks. He looks very advantageous when watching a movie, as well as in a number of games and at the same time to work on Windows it will not be the best option, especially given its cost - there probably fit two monitors "normal" proportions, the only drawback of which over This model is the presence of a sufficiently large gap in the middle of the picture.
