Worth the extra $$ SOME GOOD INFO HERE 11/07/2009
Best possible picture. (period). Very high tech looking, I bought 2 of these, and neither one has a bad pixel. I feel for the guy who posted below me though, I think 1 bad pixel should warrant a return. (Even though Newegg requires you to have 8 or more, LG only requires you to have 3 or more.)
You will notice this monitor comes with many options, some I was worried about getting like auto-light sensor, and "take-a-break" reminders. But all this crud can be shut off making it like a regular monitor. Except a regular monitor with picture quality that is not matched.
I consider the touch buttons a pro, they arn't as frustrating as people are saying. They are very solid, and work as they should. If I found any problem with the touch buttons it would be that I sometimes leave a fingerprint on them when using them because the finish is glossy.
These monitors can pull off the same resolution and dot pitch as the standard highest definition large format T.V.s, But does it within 24"
Stands arn't all perfectly uniform, like I said I bought two, and sitting next to eachother 1 sits about 3/8" higher than the other. Though I was able to correct this with some jerry rigging. Could always just buy a monitor arm too. Another thing that is kinda annoying is the backlight in the monitor shuts off when the screen is black, (I.E. when a game is loading, in a black scene in a movie, even when your background is simply black) but not a big deal, even your small mouse pointer will cause the backlight to come back on. So far I haven't seen any option to shut this feature off. I assume its considered an energy saving feature. Or possibly its to give the impression of zero light bleed during black screens.
Doesn't come with a DVI cable.
They don't sell this brand at wally world so already you know it's a plus. Shop around, even on Newegg, you wont find monitors with the same specs near this price range with the same high rating as these. Hanns-G has good prices, but its luck of the draw whether or not it will keep working after about a month. Plus they have a high chance of getting one with dead pixels. Acer/Asus don't make them the same size at this quality.
1080p IS IMPORTANT! Not just resolution. Do your research. Without progressive scan you can only pull off the best DVD quality, not Blu-Ray or HD Games.
Also due to the size/resolution of the monitor, TURN ON V-SYNC. This goes for any monitors of this spec, this will elliminate any "tearing" that you see in games or movies.
