With the IPS231B-BN, LG combines the wide viewing capabilities of In Plane Switching (IPS) technology with the superior picture quality of LED backlighting. The result is an advanced display that produces precise and vivid colors with spot on detail even from different viewing angles. Full HD is taken to new heights with exceptional contrast ratios and brightness levels that bring out subtle color differences as well as the deepest and the most difficult shades of black. 

The IPS231B-BN also seeks to be an environmentally friendlier product earning the highest EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) Gold rating. Consuming less power than typical LCD models, LED technology also limits the amount of halogen or mercury used to manufacture each unit.  It also comes with a tilt, swivel, pivot, and height-adjustable stand for optimal viewing.

  • newegg IPS Panel The LG IPS231B-BN has a super viewing angle of 178 degree. It provides consistent color tone and response time throughout the screen, precise color matching with the original image in reality.
  • newegg Integrated f-ENGINE Technology The LG F-Engine is the industry's first picture-quality enhancement chip. It constantly makes image adjustments to photos, videos and games for spectacular looking images and enhanced viewing experiences.
  • newegg LED Backlight Featuring the LED backlight technology, the LG IPS231B-BN provides increased brightness, enhanced color saturation with less power consumption, minimizes eye fatigue and is more eco-friendly to the environment containing no mercury. LED backlighting also reduces the number and overall size of components for an exceptionally thin monitor.
  • newegg Full HD for all the details With a native 1920x1080 resolution, the LG IPS231B-BN displays full HD 1080p content in its native format without any loss of image quality.
  • newegg Mega Contrast Ratio The sharper contrast of brightness and darkness makes it easy to see even the most subtle color differences. Mega Contrast technology can even show shades of pitch-black, which is considered the most difficult shade to realize.
  • newegg Designed with the Environment in Mind The LG IPS231B-BN monitor includes a variety of solutions to help you reduce your impact on the environment, including mercury-free LED backlighting for lower power consumption, ENERGY STAR 5.0 qualified, EPEAT Silver registered and RoHA compliant.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I wanted.

Pros: I have owned this monitor for 9 months, and yet to have a single issue. This monitor was exactly what was advertised. I am very happy with what I received. It's a bright, brilliant, and easy to game on monitor. The other 5 star reviews pretty much cover it.

Also, the price was right.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: This monitor is bright. At night, I think it illuminates my living room more than my desk lamp; if you stumble into your office/bedroom at night or in the morning, prepare to get your eyes seered out of your head. It's really that bright. I won't list it as a con, because once your eyes adjust it's perfect.

3 out of 5 eggsGood monitor; Bad LG

Pros: Great colors, Great contrast, Great viewing angle. Good response time for an IPS too (great for gaming). Rotating stand is a good idea too. Overall a great product, but...

Cons: The monitor came in with a dead pixel. I didn't notice it before NewEgg's warranty expired. It has pretty small pixel size, and I didn't think to look for dead pixels. But that's my fault. I contacted LG, and they offered to pay for shipping, for me to sent it to their tech, and so I did. However, when I got the monitor back in a month, not only it still had a bad pixel in the same spot (the tech reported that he didn't see any problems), but the mounting screws for the stand had destroyed threads so that I wasn't able to remove them (wanted to wall-mount it). LG offered me to mail it back to them, but by that time I was deep into the school term, and wasn't able to have no computer for another month, so I'm still using the same monitor.

Other Thoughts: Next time if a monitor comes with bad pixel, I'll make sure to add a paper arrow to the location of the pixel.

5 out of 5 eggsBest IPS Deal

Pros: Wanted a vertical monitor for coding and use as a secondary. Works perfectly. Clear and bight, and very easy to swivel and position.

Cons: Makes my other monitors look bad.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome.

Pros: Great colors, sharp graphics. Sick viewing angles. Bezel and stand are NOT glossy.

Cons: Somewhat flimsy stand. Don't really care for the adjustment buttons but that's what almost all monitors have these days.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor. I had a nice Viewsonic LED monitor and this one just blows it away. The only bad part about going IPS (I also have a Retina MacBook Pro) is that they ruin you for every other laptop/LCD screen.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitors

Pros: The monitor has great colors, sharp picture, and the rotation is great for coding and specs. I have not seen any of the bleeding indicated by other reviewers. I love these monitors, I have 3 of them on my system and they all work great!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I think these monitors are a great balance of price vs quality, highly recommend them to anyone.

4 out of 5 eggsNice monitor for the money

Pros: The picture has good color depth, afast refresh rate, and no bleeding or color banding.

The price was great when I bought it and the height adjustment is really worth it too!

Cons: It wasn't very well protected inside the box, my previous LG monitor had far better foam packing but my monitor wasn't damaged in shipping.

1 out of 5 eggsLight Bleeder

Pros: Great colors great Picture very stable, swivel tilt and flip directions matte finish all nice features.

Cons: Light Bleed like no tomorrow. I think they sold these because they thought the world was ending and no would be around to complain. I am on my second one and have decided to just eat it. The first one had the worst light bleeding ever and UPS replaced do to shipping damage. This on isn't as bad. The boxed was damaged again but I believe the product is just inferior. The bezel and edge don't meet up well or something but it looks like spotlights from the edge aimed toward the center when watching dark scenes.

I wanted to try again but I can't wait and deal with tons of shipping and then finally maybe just get a refund.

No HDMI but I knew that when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: Spend more money if you are really looking for the best monitor. If you only want this for photos or net surfing long as nothing is to dark you won't notice. Does great with brightness.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Buy

Pros: Great Color; no bleed; no dead pixels; no ghosting while gaming; excellent adjustability and calibration; height and swivel; matte bevel. IPS = great color and viewing angles.

Cons: Its not free.

Other Thoughts: Have two of them in dual monitor coniguration. Out of the box the color reproduction does not match exactly. Calibrate by eye or preferrably use a spyder and they are fantastic.
