LG introduces impressive new 21:9 UltraWide monitor

lg introduces impressive new ultrawide monitor ea93

Whether you’re a hardcore multitasker, a tech fanatic, or simply just a bit myopic, LG has a new monitor to pique your interest. The EA93 UltraWide Monitor is a whopping 29-inches wide and boasts a 21:9 aspect ratio. The company says it’s the world’s first monitor with that format. 

LG is focusing on the new product’s multitasking capabilities for its launch. Not only does the impressive size mean plenty of space for however many documents, files, or windows you might have open at once, but the EA93 also has a feature called 4-Screen Split, which allows you to divvy up screen real estate into quarters, with the ability to separately customize each section. That could make this monitor a possible alternative for people who use a dual-screen setup. In fact, it has a Dual Link-up option to connect the monitor to two external devices, which means you could have a similar setup to multiple monitors without any variation in color or image quality. It also features a DVI-D port and two HDMI connectors.

The company insists that the UltraWide monitor can perform double duty as a machine for work and personal use. The aspect ratio makes the EA93 an excellent choice for watching movies. With a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1080, the IPS display is designed for people who live and die by intense visuals. Although LG has not given a price point for this impressive monitor, it is due to roll out in South Korea early this month before making its way to the US market. 

LG has been making waves with its efforts to improve screen quality this year. The company has gone very small with a 5-inch LCD screen with high definition and 440ppi, and insanely big with a whopping 84-inch Ultra HD television. Between these updates, Apple’s proliferation of Retina displays, and other companies working hard to offer comparable technologies, computing will only be getting easier on the eyes.
