3 out of 5 eggsFive years and eight months later...

Pros: Pro - Looked good five years ago.
Pro - Lasted five years and eight months.
Pro - Five years ago this monitor was invaluable while attending school.

Cons: Con - Only lasted five years and eight months. At that rate I could have bought a brand new $200 monitor each year and had enough money left over for lunch.
Con - Side by side with my PG278Q, I can definitely see the aging technology.

Other Thoughts: Would I buy this again, at $1200, today? No. If I could go back in time and talk to myself about this purchase, would I buy it again? Well, maybe, if the past me didn't freak out and go insane once the past me finds out that he will eventually have to ......

5 out of 5 eggsDiscontinuity

Pros: 30", 2560x1600, extremely low response time for size and resolution, beautiful colors once it gets calibrated. Turns on and off quickly. It has no annoying menus to shuffle through to fix things; there are a series of easy little touch-buttons along the bottom that do everything I need.

Once you get something of this quality, you cannot go back to anything lesser. This monitor made me an LG fanboy overnight.

I bought mine in early 2009 and it's still running strong.

Cons: Slight ghosting, especially if blur settings are enabled in a game. Otherwise, nada.

If you don't like V-sync, this isn't for you.

You need a whole, entire metric ton of graphical processing power to run games on this thing.

Folks, 2560x1600 = 4,096,000 pixels.
Standard 1080p = 3,072,000.
That's a wee bit different.

Other Thoughts: I can't stand making anything that isn't a game or movie fullscreen on this thing. It seems like such a waste of space, with the fact that I can easily fit four or five useful webpages onscreen at once.

5 out of 5 eggsUnderrated gem

Pros: One of the few available 2560x1600 displays. Amazing picture quality, low ghosting, good color reproduction, no color shifting, side-angle viewing is good.

Gaming at 2560x1600 is drop-dead gorgeous! Once you experience it, you can never go back.

Monitor power on/off is nearly instant. I can't stress enough how awesome this is! I despise most other displays that take several seconds to "wake up" out of standby or power on.

The 3 year warranty definitely helps my peace of mind with this expensive purchase. I would not want to spend over $1K on a monitor without a good warranty to back it up.

I've had this LG monitor for 19 months so far, and it has been rock solid so far.

Cons: Out of the box this display is a bit bright, and the whites have a greenish tint to it. After turning the brightness down, the display looks more accurate. Also, with age the picture just gets better.

I lost the clip that keeps the monitor stand from rising. Every time I want to move this monitor to attend a LAN party, I have to handle it very awkwardly in order to keep the kneck of the monitor from sliding around.

Other Thoughts: I decided to buy an LED from a local store about a year ago. I thought it would be very useful for LAN parties so that I wouldn't have to drag around this pricey 30" with me. I ended up returning the LED the second day of ownership. Once you get one of these S-IPS panels, all other LCD's and LED's look bad in comparison.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Monitor By Far

Pros: I am gaming and a network architect and I love this monitor, I can fit exactly 4x720p resolution videos or RDP/SSH Panels, and gaming/movies is awesome. colors still great, quality is amazing.

Cons: Included base is...basic.

Other Thoughts: Added a Ergatron MX, and later added 2 LG 20" Monitors for a total res of 4360x1600 (1600x900 monitors in portrait on either side)

Previous user noted they use a sharpie to cover the LED...there is a softbutton on the left to disable it...sound too.

2 out of 5 eggsBacklight went out in under 2 months.

Pros: Was very nice to game on and for photo editing after calibration.

Cons: Only lasted a little over 1.5 months. I was using it and then the brightness all of a sudden went to half. Looked inside the little vents on top and could see the lamps that used to be bright when you looked inside were off now. Going to have to go through the hassle of returning it and waiting to get it back now. Got to find something to ship it in also.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent basic high-res LCD monitor

Pros: I found my recently purchased LG W3000H to perform well thus far, consistent with its high rating in NE customer reviews and recent "award." However, neither I nor most other commenters have carefully/critically A/B'd the LG unit with similarly priced HP alternatives.

Cons: Issues mentioned in many reviews are that the W3000H has only a single DVI-D input, no OSD menu, and only an overall backlight brightness control (i.e., no "internal" contrast, gamma, or hue/color settings); but of course any suitable video-card/driver should offer extensive image adjustment capabilities. As also frequently mentioned, at its factory supplied brightness setting, the display radiates quite noticeable heat, and per LG specs, consumes approx 130 watts (actually somewhat more for several minutes at start-up.)

Other Thoughts: Perhaps best to run the backlight at its factory setting for an initial ~100 hrs lamp "burn-in"; but subsequently, using LG's "buttons" (bezel bottom-left control points) to lower screen brightness, can trim power consumption to slightly under 60 watts, and reduce the easily sensed radiated heat. N.B.: the same consumed AC-power reduction does NOT occur if/when I similarly trim effective screen brightness using video-card drive-signal control. Thus, after whatever initial backlight full-current "burn-in" may be advised, there is much to be said for setting the display's bezel control to the lowest max brightness level suitable to your needs, and employ your video-card to achieve color balance/contrast/tracking (and not to set overall screen brightness.) However, lowering lamp brightness (using LG's W3000H bezel "buttons") does seem to exacerbate the green-blue color cast many have observed, and thus require more careful tweaking of video-card drive parameters for compensation.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat display

Pros: Arrived on time and worked great out of the box. Love the touch buttons, the colors and contrast are amazing. Looks better then the old Apple 30" I have in the other room. Games, movies, and working on it are a dream.

Cons: The LED light over the power button is a little bright when I'm watching a movie with the room lights dimmed. I fixed it by taking a perm marker and coloring over the light (carefully).

Other Thoughts: It's large and heavy.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's just so... BIG.

Pros: It's huge! This monitor performs wonderfully in just about every way. The colors are bright and the 5ms speed is good for gaming. It even sings a little song when you turn it on.

Cons: It's huge! It does take up a bit of real estate on your desk. Make sure there is enough room to house this beast before you make the commitment to bring it home.

Other Thoughts: In hindsight, it is important to note that if you do intend to game with this beast of a display you will need a powerful graphics card. That is, if you wish to run your apps in the native resolution. As with any LCD, non-native resolutions will give you a less than desirable fuzzy effect. I use 8800 GTXs in SLI mode and can seldom run higher than 1920x1200 on high end action games. I will be moving to a GTX 470 soon to compensate.

5 out of 5 eggshmmm

Pros: This monitor works great. I am reviewing based on using my friends monitor. It is a great thing to use and is seamless witht he video card.

Cons: Can't think of anything.

Other Thoughts: I can't decide for anyone else but if you are going to drop this much money on a monitor, you can easily get a larger tv in its place without losing many "unique features" offered through monitors. Think about it.
