LG was showing off some spectacular In-Plane Switching (IPS) 21:9 monitors in their booth, and we had a chance to take a look at them. The E93 is a 29” ultra-wide monitor featuring the LG Cinema Screen design with the ultra-thin bezel. It can connect any number of devices as it has the LG dual-link feature that allows simultaneous connectivity of two external devices. In the booth, we saw a smartphone, an Xbox360 and an external laptop all hooked up.
Sean spent the better part of five minutes testing out Forza Motorsport 4 on it and was pleasantly surprised at how well the extra real estate enhanced the game. From a bystander’s perspective, the image was incredible sharp and smooth and it felt natural seeing more area within the game itself. Unfortunately, retail price and availability were not announced at the show, so we will have to wait for additional announcements in the future.
Check out the short clip below of Sean testing Forza 4 on the monitor and just how well it looked.
