This review is from: LG 23ET83V-W Silver 23" IPS-Panel 10-point Touchscreen Monitor 250 cd/m2 10000000:1
Pros: Phenomenal color, clarity and touch response
Cons: Stand designed primarily for upright use as a traditional monitor
Other Thoughts: As others have noted, this LG multipoint touchscreen display is outstanding. It’s a pleasure to use. The display stand is, however, oddly limited for such an advanced touch device. Used in the default upright position, the monitor is in an uncomfortable position for touch gestures IMO. To get the most functionality, I have turned the stand and laid it on its back. In that configuration, the monitor extends about five inches below the front edge of my desk. The monitor is now at about a 30 degree angle just above my lap. I had to set the display panel to rotate the image 180 degrees since the monitor is now upside down and I added a counterweight to the base to keep the monitor from tipping off my desk. The improved ergonomics was worth the trouble. It feels very natural in relation to my arms and hands in this position.
I have the LG 23ET83 display connected to a Win 8 PC used mainly for illustration and design. The touch functions play well in concert with my Wacom Intuos tablet. When I move the stylus away from the tablet, the monitor’s touch functions are enabled. Touch is disabled when the pen is on the tablet. (The monitor itself does not respond to a stylus.) I like this setup using the big LG 23ET83 in combination with a graphics tablet much more than my old 12-inch pen input monitor. The LG/tablet setup is also about three grand less expensive and nearly as satisfying as the newest 24-inch touch/pen input monitor.
Regarding the warranty, Newegg's details tab states three years for this monitor. The warranty in the package, however, is for only one year.
