LG 29EA93 Rev. 1.25 Review
By Chris Heinonen on
Last year I looked at the LG 29EA93 monitor for AnandTech. I was very interested in it due to the 21:9 aspect ratio it had, but in the end I had some issues with the performance of the display. Well LG really listened to what I said, and asked a lot more questions, and then revised the firmware of the display to resolve a lot of these issues.
Instead of having a monitor that was OK with some issues, LG now has produced one that might be the single best combination display for gaming and media viewing out there. Your games can offer a wider field-of-view than traditional 16:9 or 16:10 monitors, and movies that are cinema-scope can take up the full display to eliminate all black bars. Input lag is practically non-existent, and color fidelity is far improved and is one of the best displays out there now.
Now at AnandTech I have a full review of this new firmware revision, 1.25, so you can see how well the LG 29EA93 performs when fully optimized. I think it’s a very enlightening read, and one that shows why you can’t just judge a display on the panel that it uses, since there is so much more that goes into a unit. You can see how LG took a monitor that I felt let me down, and turned it into one that I can easily recommend to readers.
