LG Introduces Two New 21:9 Monitors

It looks like LG doesn't see the new 21:9 "ultra-widescreen" aspect-ratio as something that caters to a niche, and is bent on making it the next mainstream resolution. The company rolled out its second and third 29-inch ultra-widescreen monitors, the 29EA73-P, and 29EB73-P; pictured in that order below. Both are 29-inchers, offering a native resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels. Both feature a plethora of inputs, including dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, a pair of HDMI ports (including an MHL). Both offer USB 3.0 hubs, 7W stereo speakers, and audio out; but differ in design, and hence, dimensions. The 29EA73-P measures 699.7 x 387.0 x 197.2 mm, weighing 5.9 kg; while the 29EB73-P measures 699.7 x 395.3 x 225.0 mm, weighing 6.9 kg. While LG didn't announce pricing, the 29EB73-P is expected to be a tiny bit pricier among the two; while both could be cheaper than the 29EA93 series.

What's with the 29" stuck size?? Please, make it at least 32" or 34" in size and at least 2800x1200 or even 3360x1440 resolution, and you have a deal.

Why don't they just cut the crap and move to 50:1?

Nah, cutting the crap would just be a single one pixel high bar

Yeah but what would something like that cost?

Probably somewhere between current 2560x1440 and 4K monitors,.........ie not cheap.

These 21:9 29" monitors typically cost about ~$550 USD or so on sale. Increasing the resolution will increase the price, likely beyond what many are typically willing to pay.

That would actually work if they made it slightly curved.
