This review is from: LG 24GM77-B Black 24" 1ms 144 HZ TN 16:9 Widescreen Gaming Monitor 1920 x 1080 Dynamic Action Sync Mode Flicker Safe Black Stabilizer with Anti-Glare 3H Surface USB3.0 DisplayPort HDMI DVI-D D-Sub
Pros: I’ve had the LG 24GM77 for a couple of days now and wanted to write a review now that I’ve played around with it. I would say that overall it is a decent monitor that does have some issues, which may be limited to just me or possibly more widespread.
Opening it open and putting it together was as easy as tightening one screw on the base. The base does seem rather large and takes up at least double the desk space that my 27” monitor takes up. Once that was all setup I hooked the monitor up with a DVI cable and power and I was ready to go or so I thought. I was adjusting the refresh rate and anything above 60Hz was giving me a pink screen. Everything looked good in the properties but still had no luck. The DVI cable I was using was the same one I had hooked up to the 27” monitor and after swapping it out with the one that came with the LG I was back in business.
The controls are easy to navigate but it took me a little while to realize the adjustment control is underneath the monitor, although if I had read through the manual first I’m sure I would have found it quicker. The controls allow you to setup and store 6 different sets of preferences which can then be accessed easily by a left or right arrow on the front of the monitor. I chose to only setup 3 for now, 1 for gaming, 1 for movies and 1 for everything else. Like I said the process is simple just choose 1 of the 6 storage banks, adjust the settings how you like and you’re done.
I’ve been playing Dragon Age Inquisition for a while now so that is what I loaded up to test the monitor with. Right away I noticed the images looked a lot sharper and brighter than the 27” AOC monitor that I was using. One thing I noticed is that I didn’t really see much of a difference when switching between 60 or 100,120 or 144hz. It’s possible that Dragon age isn’t a good game to test this on though. One thing I’ve found is that if you want to turn on the motion 240 setting you need to have the refresh rate at either 100 or 120hz it’s greyed out in the menu if you switch to 144hz. Although I didn’t notice a difference in the refresh rates the colors and brightness still were phenomenal.
Cons: Time to get into some negatives and as I stated earlier it’s possible that my monitor is defective, I will probably email LG to see what they say when I get a chance. Browsing through websites I noticed that the screen was hurting my eyes so I went into the settings and adjusted the brightness and the sharpness and things were looking good again. A few minutes later the fonts are bothering my eyes again and are kind of blurry so I check the settings again and they were all the same. I go into the sharpness setting to adjust it and everything is good again until a few minutes later. For some reason it seems that the sharpness setting isn’t working correctly. I have the sharpness setting set at 80 and once the webpages start to look blurry if I move the sharpness slider up or down it fixes the issue for a little while. This appears to be an issue with the sharpness setting on the monitor. I’ve tried adjusting other setting and nothing fixes the issue until I move the sharpness around. I noticed it slightly while playing Dragon Age but nothing like when browsing webpages or typing up a document in word.
Overall I would give it a 3 out of 5 stars, I would most likely give it a 5 if there wasn’t the issue with the sharpness. If you’re using the monitor strictly for gaming I would say that it is worth it given the color and clarity of the monitor. If it’s going to be a general all around monitor and the sharpness issue isn’t related to just me than I would probably look at something else unless you want to go into the settings constantly.
Other Thoughts: If you’re using the monitor strictly for gaming I would say that it is worth it given the color and clarity of the monitor. If it’s going to be a general all around monitor and the sharpness issue isn’t related to just me than I would probably look at something else unless you want to go into the settings constantly.READ FULL REVIEW
