This review is from: LG W2340V-PN Glossy Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 70000:1(1000:1)
Pros: Pretty nice image when you sit right in front of it, I like it a lot when I don't notice the flaws.
I bought this at a local mega outlet. Told the sales rep I was replacing a Samsung Syncmaster 204B that had provided a really nice image but failed as soon as the warranty expired. The 204B is no longer available (and also wasn't perfect but did have a really nice image).
The sales rep said he owned both monitors (204B and W2340) and suggested that this would be the closest match in view-ability for less than $300.
At first I agreed, A nice image, good light distribution, Flat (matte) rather than glossy screen.
Cons: As time has gone on I have started to notice what I have heard called a "screen door" or "newsprint" effect. Some types of imagery or viewing angles cause shadows and gradients in particular to appear as though you are looking at them through a fine mesh.
I asked my wife if she noticed it , it took her more than 5 minutes to notice the effect. Once I noticed this effect I couldn't help being distracted by it. Depending on your usage (Watching movies, full screen slideshows or black text on white) you may never notice it.
Other Cons: Widescreen format, when can we start getting some nice 4:3 monitors that don't cost an arm and a leg again?
Limited acceptable vertical viewing angles, a common lcd issue.
Glossy stupid looking bezel, give me a 1/2" matte black bezel any day, the frame should not distract you from the image
Flimsy lightweight base, very little tilt adjustment. Did I mention Widescreen?
Other Thoughts: I feel bad giving this monitor a harsh review, most people will probably never notice the problems, but I wouldn't recommend it to an artist or someone with picky eyes. 90% of the time it is really nice, and I don't feel bad about it for the price. I paid a 3 star price and got a 3 star monitor.
When you spend as much time in front of a monitor as I do, little things start to bug you. I'm sure my wife will be quite happy with this monitor when I find a replacement.
I've owned this monitor for 2 months approximately and I came to NewEgg today because I finally can't take it any more. I am looking to replace it, preferrably with a 4:3 ratio (1600x1200) and around. Wish me luck
