A Look at LG's EA93 Ultra Widescreen 29-inch Monitor

After cinemascope screens on TVs and notebooks, it seems like the next product group picking up the change is monitors. A number of players are readying their ultra widescreen iterations and LG is right up there with all the rest of the manufacturers with their own offering. The LG EA93 is a 29-inch IPS display that has a resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels (21:9 aspect ratio). Such high resolution monitors and the widescreen nature are perfect for heavy multitaskers and of course embracing the Windows 8 home screen's horizontal scrolling nature.

Now the special aspect of the LG EA93 is its built-in screen management tool that will self-install on most Windows operating systems once the monitor is hooked up with the host PC. Called the 4-Screen Split software, it helps you manage multiple windows with ease.

One of the most irritating aspects of multitasking is finding a quick way to arrange multiple open windows for you to view them a glance. Windows 7 is able to natively handle an evenly sized split screen between two active windows while in Windows 8, you can effectively go up to three windows (depending on your combination of apps). LG's 4-Screen Split Software can help you manage up to four windows across the screen and you can do so on most commonly used Windows OS versions. Additionally, it offers you many more options for sizing two or three active windows with just a click. Check out all the split-screen options available:-

Here's the triple-screen balanced split mode setup, which is quite ideal for an ultra widescreen monitor.

Other notable features of the LG EA93 are dual input options, hardware calibrated screen out-of-the-box, able to render sRGB color space of 100% and a pair of fairly powerful 7W speakers.
