LG EA93 29inch 219 monitor is 630

first_imgPhilips was the first manufacturer to embrace a 21:9 aspect ratio display back in 2009 with a HD TV. They didn’t sell well due to their high price and Philips eventually killed off the line. Then in August this year LG announced it was about to launch a 21:9 aspect ratio monitor. Two months later and the LG EA93 is now available to buy, although initially only available in Korea.The display is 29-inch IPS-LED unit, has a native resolution of 2,560 x 1,080, a brightness rated at 300nits, 178-degree viewing angles, and built-in stereo speakers. It’s perfect for watching movies as they were intended to be viewed, but LG wants us to realize the potential in other areas, too. For example, you can potentially replace a couple of displays with a single EA93. You can sit two browser windows next to each other or have multiple apps running and clearly visible all at the same time.The monitor has a black frame, chrome stand, and white backing. Connectivity includes two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort, and DVI Dual Link. There’s also 3 USB 3.0 ports on the back, which aren’t in the greatest of positions for easy access. As for cost, it hasn’t been announced for different markets yet, but in Korea it will sell for 690,000 won, which is roughly $630.The price does carry a big premium if you compare it to the 1080p 27-inch displays out there, which sell for around $300. However, it’s lower than premium 27-inch displays like the Dell UltraSharp U2711 that costs around $800.If you want a monitor that doubles as a TV then it may be worth considering the EA93. But for viewing any programming other than movies you are going to have to endure black borders down the sides of the display. It’s also worth considering for anyone who doesn’t have room for 2 monitors, but still wants as wide a desktop as possible.via Engadgetlast_img
