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

Price when rated: $600
Lowest price: $500.00 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
