This review is from: LG 23ET83V-W Silver 23" IPS-Panel 10-point Touchscreen Monitor 250 cd/m2 10000000:1
Pros: This is the nicest looking monitor I've ever owned, very easy on the eyes. Everything looks so clear and crisp. Better for movies than a lot of TVs I've owned, and it's just as good at rendering text. Other monitors I've owned are only good for reading, or for gaming/movies, but this one is great for both.
Cons: The touchscreen has increasingly malfunctioned, and cleaning the monitor doesn't seem to help. When I first got the monitor, it worked okay until this weird area in the upper left corner of the monitor began acting like it was being pressed. I was able to reset it by unplugging and reinserting the USB on the back of the monitor. Eventually, resetting it this way worked for shorter and shorter periods of time, until now I have to leave the touchscreen cable completely unplugged at all times if I don't want applications randomly closing or being launched.
Other Thoughts: LG has been making TVs and monitors for a long time, and it shows. But they clearly don't know the first thing about making touchscreens. I would have sent it back if it weren't such a great monitor. I couldn't stand the thought of having to use one of my other monitors while this one was being replaced. So, I'll just settle for having a touchscreen on my Surface Pro, and keep using a mouse on my desktop for the time being. I guess it will be a while before the manufacturers figure out how to make working touchscreens. Sigh.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent Contrast
No backlight bleeding
Excellent sub-24" monitor for space constraints
Good quality picture
Cons: Motion blurring is rather visible.
Screen is slightly glossy, so shadows and reflections affect image quality.
Other Thoughts: This is a $250, 8ms monitor with an MVA panel. It has no speakers, although it does have an audio in port so you can attach your own. It also features a two-port USB hub so that you can attach USB devices without touching your computer directly. It features DisplayPort, DVI, and VGA connections, and both DVI and VGA cables are included.
It's a very good monitor for what it is, but there's a 4ms version of this monitor available in Canada for the SAME price, and certain BenQ monitors use basically the same panel while costing $100 less and being 4ms panels. If I had to do this over again, I'd wait until mid-2013 to buy a new monitor, when all the good models will be out.
