5 out of 5 eggsGreat IPS monitors

Pros: Great color, fast response coming out of power save. I purchased 2 of these to replace some old Westinghouse 22" LCD monitors.

Cons: I did have to tweak with the colors out of the box. The blacks didn't seem quite right to me. They didn't seem quite as black as what my other monitors were. Once I got them setup, they look pretty good. I haven't done any gaming on them yet, but I'm sure they'll do fine.

Other Thoughts: I got the monitors with a promotion code, making them almost as cheap as some of the Acer IPS monitors that were on sale. I guess I was paying extra for brand. Overall I'm happy with them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor for photo work

Pros: Inexpensive IPS monitor that Color Calibrates easily with a calibration device, unlike TN panel monitors that cannot display enough colors to calibrate. The Plug and Play is good enough that a monitor driver really isn't needed except for perhaps the color profile.

Cons: None for the price. Additional adjustments like height and rotation would be nice, but just won't be found at this price level.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for use with my Toshiba Satellite C655-S5061 Laptop, which can run the full resolution. Compares very favorably to the high end NEC MultiSync LCD2190UXI monitor that I use with my desktop that cost almost $1000 factory refurbished years back.

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Price. Brightness is good.

Cons: I will not go into details of technical nature why I rated this monitor low quality. I have my other 3 year old LCD monitor connected to the same video card. The difference is tremendous for my eyes. This one wears them out very quickly... After looking away from it I feel an apparent relief to my eyes. Maybe the monitor is not calibrated well... but for sure it shouldn't tire out eyes. Last time I bought LED.

2 out of 5 eggsWaste of Money

Pros: Very Inexpensive
Large Format
Clear Picture and Good Color Controls

Cons: Insanely thin and flimsy
Half the OSD options don't work
Requires drivers, but drivers don't do anything
Almost impossible to find support from LG for this product
Included install CD was complete trash

Other Thoughts: It was on sale with a code, and I paid $125 entirely for it. I guess you get what you pay for, because it's rather awful in terms of features and quality.

It says there is a 'Reader Mode' - the manual says 'Just press the Reader Mode button" ...there is no reader mode button on the entire monitor.

Most of the options on the on-screen display are just grey, with no way to enable them. The monitor frequently does this weird dimming effect (probably the super-ultra-power-saving-nonsense it advertises) whenever I'm watching video full-screen. There is no apparent way to disable this feature or at least turn it down. The manual says you can, but the options it tells you to select simply don't exist in the menu.

Avoid the bother, don't get this.

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.
