LG Electronics USA today launched two new "UltraWide" 21:9 aspect ratio* LED monitors designed to offer professional tools for effective multitasking and excellent gaming experience. Models EA73 and LN450W, which will be on sale in late September, also employ LG's advanced In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology and 2560 x 1080 resolution capability* to deliver exceptional picture quality. "Picture quality is always the number one priority when LG designs display products, but we also focus on versatility," said Tim Alessi, director of new product development at LG Electronics USA. "Our new UltraWide monitors exemplify that focus with features that make them ideal for home-office professionals, students, gamers and casual users alike."



UltraWide Monitor: Multitasking and Multimedia Functionality
LG's new UltraWide monitors feature multitasking and multimedia capabilities, making them ideal for a variety of uses, such as gaming, watching movies and everyday tasks. In addition to their unique aspect ratio and 29-inch class screens (29.0 inches measured diagonally), a feature gamers love because it expands overall screen real estate, LG's new monitors come with software designed to help consumers easily manage multiple windows and source devices.

LG's 4-Screen Split feature allows users to divide the screen into four sections at eight different screen ratios, so users can prioritize windows by size and location instead of having to manually resize and position each window individually. A few simple mouse clicks enable the user to quickly arrange windows into a variety of useful configurations, perfect for the student or professional who needs to jump from program to program. Adding even more versatility, a connectivity feature called Dual-Link Up allows the monitor to connect to two source devices (e.g. smartphones, PCs, cameras, Blu-ray players or gaming systems) and display each on a single screen simultaneously.

Completing the Package
The IPS 21:9 UltraWide series is Mac compatible and supports Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), HDMI and DisplayPort, transforming PCs into powerful entertainment hubs capable of mirroring and transmitting content from a wide range of devices. Graphic designers also should find the monitor's 99 percent sRGB color space expression and support for color calibration helpful. Coupled with these features is IPS technology to help ensure the most accurate color reproduction of source materials.
The LN450W incorporates a digital TV tuner for broadcast reception as well as cable or set-top box connectivity. Both models feature 7W speakers and LG's immersive, thin-bezel CINEMA SCREEN Design for a complete entertainment package.

The EA73 and LN450W will be on sale online and retailers at suggested prices of $599.99 and $649.99, respectively. For more information please visit this page.

*21:9 Full Screen or 2560x1080 Resolution functionality may depend on content, devices, interfaces or graphic cards. For connection with Mac, Mini-DP to DVI-D/DP/HDMI adaptor is required. For HDMI connections with Mac, 2560 x 1080 resolution is not available. Mac is a trademark of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries. To use Dual Link-up, one device must be connected to the DisplayPort the other must be connected to either the HDMI or DVI port.

INB4 People complaining about 1080P in a 21:9 ratio altough it is a pretty good vertical pixel density for the height and if it was a 23" 16:9 they wouldn't say a word about it.

Really, what did LG do to you,......?

Personally I have a small problem with Viewsonic due to one dead HDTV (cheap caps in the PSU for the entire line) and a fading 22" monitor.

I got a BD590 ( some $300 unit at the time ) some time ago which failed after 3 months and found out there warranty was parts only and tried to charge labor as the warranty was 12 month parts and 3 months labor.

But after really talking to them for some time they changed there mind to back the product and actually fix it for free and said they will send a shipping label and rma stuff to my email which never arrived.
