Pros:

This monitor has quite a few features for an IPS screen at this price point. HDMI in, audio out, and a standard array of calibration options.

Also, the display panel itself is very slim and sleek.

Cons:

Color fidelity out of the box was poorer than I expected, though thorough calibration did help.

The one thing that couldn't be fixed was the horrible backlight bleeding this monitor suffers. On a fully black screen, nearly 1/2 of the real estate is taken up with massive blotches extending from all four corners.

There is tilt, but no pivot or swivel, and the viewing angles seemed fairly narrow compared to other IPS screens.

The base feels very flimsy, and the stand is made out of a very tacky looking neon orange plastic.

Other Thoughts:

For the price, I can't say I really expected a premium quality panel. I also own two Dell Ultrasharps, which completely eclipse this monitor in quality, clarity, color reproduction and functionality. In comparison, this screen leaves a lot to be desired.

It's certainly not something to be used for any kind of serious design work. But, it is still a step up from a standard TN panel, and given the price point, that seems to be what LG was aiming for.

If you just want an IPS for casual use and don't want to break the bank, this is a decent option. For any kind of color critical work, look elsewhere.
