Humongous is here: 'Eyes-on' with three 29-inch displays

At a Glance

LG's 29EA93P is stylish and it's equipped with pretty good speakers (for a monitor, that is). But for the price, we expect to see not just DisplayPort support, but support for DisplayPort 1.2 multistreaming.

Price when rated: $700
Lowest price:

Pros

  • MHL support (for Android device mirroring)
  • Built-in USB 3.0 hub
  • Very good off-axis viewing

Cons

  • Does not support DisplayPort 1.2 multi-streaming
  • Limited ergonomic flexibility

Dell consistently produces great monitors, and the U2913WM is no exception, although we don't care for the Autocolor feature that "optimizes" the display for the currently active application.

Price when rated: $600
Lowest price: $475.00 via Dell Small Business

Pros

  • Supports DisplayPort 1.2 multi-streaming
  • Excellent off-axis viewing
  • Very flexible stand
  • Overall very good image quality

Cons

  • Does not support MHL (for Android device mirroring)
  • No audio speakers
  • Autocolor feature has its quirks
