sRGB is the standard color space of ideal color reproduction. So, with over 99% coverage of the sRGB spectrum, this LG monitor is a great solution for professional photographers, graphic designers or anyone looking for highly accurate color.

The only thing that kinda stinks about them is the power switch is on the bottom. So if you plan on stacking them like this you cannot stack them too tight or you cant power them individually. The power switch is a joystick like button.
What's great about it:
- Screen real estate, it's a real life/work changer. I was a little skeptical at first, but I needed a new monitor anyways and I was getting tired of switching between tabs and windows. The wide screen means you can comfortably fit two normal fullsize windows side by side.
- Great IPS panel screen. A monitor as wide as this needs accurate colors in all viewing angle and I have no complaints. The screen has the capacity to get really bright and has decent black levels.
- The OSD (on screen display) is actually not at all bad. There's a single knob below the center of the monitor that functions as the menu navigation + power.
Reasons why this is so cheap:
- Only TWO inputs. You see it in the product image, but there are only two HDMI inputs. That's it. No DVI, no Displayport, no VGA. There is a headphone jack, for what I'm assuming is a gaming feature.
- A little shorter in height than I expected. Coming from a 24" 16:9 monitor, I knew I'd lose some vertical real estate but not the two inches that are gone.
- Cost cutting in the stand is obvious, although LG did try to make it acceptably sleek and modern. It's not a terrible base/stand as far as I'm concerned, but it does wobble a bit when I type.
Good to knows:
- I'm running a Displayport > HDMI adapter cable rated at up to 1080p and it produces the image just fine. I was concerned I'd need to get an adapter that supports a higher resolution.
- This monitor is targeted heavily at the budget gamer, as it shows in the various and prominent 'Gaming mode' settings. There are two FPS presets (first-person shooter) and one RTS (real-time strategy) preset.
- Dual Link means you can fill both HDMI ports with a source and the monitor will put them side by side.
If you need more inputs in a monitor, then I'd suggest the next level up (25UM64) which is priced at around ~$100 more for DVI and Displayport.
If you have the budget, then go higher! 29" or higher will make this a total dream monitor.
For work, this could possibly replace a dual monitor setup, depending on your needs. If you need just a little extra horizontal space, it's perfect. But if you do a lot of graphics work or computer programming, you might find yourself a little cramped. The matte finish is an attractive feature if you spend a lot of time staring at your screen, due to the reduces glare. The colors don't seem faded on it either, which is nice. The viewing angles are solid, and overall, it's a great upgrade if you're still using a lower resolution. Admittedly, it looks a bit expensive on paper, and maybe you do have to pay a premium for it being a niche product, but displays are a personal item so what works for one person might not for another. Try it first if you can. If not and you're still considering it, I highly recommend it.
