    Reviews - LG 29UC97 29-inch curved monitor announced

    Smaller curved 21:9 screen should bring more accessible pricing to LG's range.

    I wish someone would make a curved 27" 2560x1440 monitor. Samsung have a curved 27" monitor but it's only 1080p.

    I agree; what's with the constant puddle-depth of 1080? Do the people making these things love scrolling or do they simply never use monitors to do real work?

    Indeed, who would get this, but be happy with the resolution offered. I mean, my dell 3008WFPs aren't exactly new (7 years old ffs) but offer a better pixel density.

    Re: Reviews - LG 29UC97 29-inch curved monitor announced

    I'm happy with my 1440p monitor and given the Next-Gen cards will be looking to ramp up stuff at 4K, I for one will be a happy bunny on 1440p, should mean more frame rates at the resolution.

    I guess its got to be a cost thing? Or something....

    Though the LG's (the model above in this example) look good.

    The latter. I have a 1600p monitor to do real work and my 21:9 ultrawide is for gaming

    Going by the number of toolbars I see people with, even now in 2015, I don't think they are sensitive to these kind of things.

    I can see the need for a curve on the 34" versions of this, but the curve for the 29" would have to be very gentle for it to make sense I think. I can see it working... but only just.

    Curved 27" seems a bit daft, they're tiny
