4 out of 5 eggsPicture quality is great after adjustment

Pros: 1. Picture quality is great after adjustment
2. Menu options are straight-forward and correspond to the buttons underneath.

Cons: 1. Picture quality is absolutely horrible out of the box
2. Stand is glossy so it is super-reflective
3. Stand does not need to be so big
4. Stand is a bit wobbly but not as bad as others
5. Connections are lacking with only one HDMI and one VGA
6. Power supply is one of this brick ones that attaches to the power outlet which could obstruct other outlets if connected to a power strip

Other Thoughts: My settings for best picture quality:
Brightness: 100
Contrast: 90
Response Time: High
Black Level: Low
Game: Gamma2
Red: 48
Green: 40
Blue: 52
Six Color adjustments are maxed out for all colors

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for the price

Pros: High Brightness
Easy menu navigation
No reflections
No backlight bleed
Great contrast ratio with deep blacks
Reading mode makes everything easier on the eyes

Cons: The stand is wobbly, no DVI.

Other Thoughts: No problems at all with HDMI, just go to overscan settings in CCC/Nvidia control panel and set it to max, then it fills the whole screen.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: - AH-IPS panel with 5ms response time
- 23"
- LED backlit (longevity, low power, no streaking, no heat)
- External power brick
- No dead/stuck pixels

Cons: - LG doesn't seem that great for support. Another reviewer commented on it and I'm not surprised. One of the factors in purchasing this monitor was the 3-year warranty advertised on the LG website. However, in the paperwork with the monitor, it clearly states 1 year. I tried to register the monitor online and their links don't work (redirecting to a page that doesn't exist).
- Not a huge variety of inputs, only VGA & HDMI. I used a DVI to HDMI cable and it works fine (check your video card settings for overscan). Displayport would have been nice to future-proof the monitor but HDMI isn't going away anytime soon.
- The monitor is wobbily. Not front to back but side to side. Maybe it's just how I have it setup but when I vigorously move my mouse, the screen tilts slightly. It's probably more of a factor of a cheap stand and really wide screen but it's not a deal breaker. My previous monitor was really stout but significantly less wide and didn't have the issue.
- On-screen menu color controls leave more to be desired. After fiddling with the controls for a day to get something good, I got close to a good image but then was disappointed on other video content. I gave up and went back to a program I used in the past; Calibrize. A minute or two later (after defaulting the menu settings) I have great color and contrast. Everything looks the way it should. I've never been a fan of built-in controls.
- Only a VGA cable is included, no HDMI/DVI or adapter.

Other Thoughts: In the MENU, be sure to set "Response Time" to High and press the FUNC and set "Super Energy Saving" to off. I like saving energy but at it's worst, this monitor is using half the power my old one did. The energy saving feature will automatically adjust the display and it's horrible. The response time is pretty critical for gaming and movies too.

I came from an Acer AL2016W which is a 20" TN panel with CCFL backlighting that had started fading and streaking over the last 7 years then finally died on me (power supply board caps). The difference is huge. I see color and detail that I never knew existed before. This monitor displays half a million colors more than my previous one, has the same response time, has greater accuracy and brightness and 3 more inches.

I was thinking about an ASUS TN panel of similar size but saw this on sale for the same price and couldn't resist. I think with this monitor, you're getting a great internal panel but the stuff surrounding it is mediocre to keep costs down; the logic board features, the stand, the customer support. I'm willing to take that hit for the price.

The bottom line is, I would recommend this monitor for someone looking for above-average color quality on a budget. All things considered, I'm pleased.

4 out of 5 eggsworks pretty well for the price

Pros: +IPS at a low cost

+once you calibrate it (took me almost 1/2 hour) it looks great

+supports HDMI with audio out (good because most pc monitor speakers suck)

+Reading mode, it tints your screen orange (like gunners/f.lux) so looking at the screen longer is less hard on the eyes

+Lots of options, very detailed color setup, not just brightness/contrast/color temp, but you can adjust the range for each of the hue's individually, not just 3 little rgb sliders.

+ REAL BUTTONS: none of those stupid touch buttons, and the osd menu will label them for you, so you can see them in the dark.

Cons: -terrible support,
I enter a live chat, and ask for the max refresh rate at 1080p,
after 30 mins of them telling me how great 1080p is. (???)
they said they do not know. C'mon that's very basic!! But not listed anywhere... (it's 60hz)

-more tearing then other displays
it's not a lot, and probably because I'm using two 1080p displays on more GPU's.
I don't notice it much while gaming, or in videos, but with extremely fast motion if you're looking for it,
you'll see it.

+Terrible preset.
When I first plugged in the monitor, I almost died.
The colors were wayyy off, and the contrast and brightness were not even close, it looked extremely dark and washed out.

+The manual,
only give very basic information,
it's what you'd expect from a quick start guide,
not very much detailed info.

Other Thoughts: I know I threw quite a bit in the negative category, but it's really not a bad monitor.

it DOSE work on HDMI, or DVI (with an adapter)
just go into your CCC or nvida panel and look for the overscan settings (google it, if you need too)

From there you should be able to make it take up the whole screen.

The response time is great, and once I got the colors setup it looks extremely great for the price.

I bought this to watch movies and play games on,
and it works ok for both.

The SuperResolution+ is just a gimmick,
it boosts contrast, and sharpness,
it's nice (on med/low only) in some situations
but it's not really a selling point, as you can adjust those two manually in most any monitor.

it's a nice low cost IPS display,
not ideal for gaming, but it's usable,
the IPS makes the colors look vibrant (when calibrated)
and you can watch movies in bed without the colors shifting like they would on a TN panel.
With the option to output audio to GOOD speakers instead of wasting money putting in trashy ones,
they could keep the cost down, and allow people to use it as a small TV for a hdmi cable box or game console without the need for audio strippers or conversion boxes.

The reader mode allow you to use your monitor for longer without tiring your eyes,
and unlike f.lux it's built in, so it can be used on game consoles, or DVD players as well.

my only big complaints were with the setup,
but no it works great!

there is some tearing on my PC, but not on my consoles,
so it could be a dual monitor thing.

But over all it's a great monitor,
Not amazing, not the best ever, but great!

2 out of 5 eggsHDMI w PC causes problems

Pros: Decent picture

Cons: Manual clearly states that using this monitor with a PC and the HDMI input will cause compatibility problems. It would not use the full screen without going to a VGA input.

4 out of 5 eggsGood monitor, bad documentation

Pros: Great picture, sharp and bright. No dead pixels.

Cons: Picture required color balancing. Used Huey, and results look good. Image didn't fill screen, and nothing in documentation mentioned size adjustments.. Chat help at LG couldn't help. Phone support somewhat curt, but did say it may be the video card. Finally got it right by trial and error with monitor and card settings. Documentation little help on other issues, as though it were written for an internal person already familiar with their specific product and terminology.

Other Thoughts: Don't count on documentation to help you get the most out of this monitor. But once you get it right, it looks and performs great.
