Awesome monitor

LG 23MP47HQ 23" Full HD 1920 x 1080 60 Hz D-Sub, HDMI LCD Monitor IPS
LG 23MP47HQ 23" Full HD 1920 x 1080 60 Hz D-Sub, HDMI LCD Monitor IPS

Pros: - 1080p - IPS - Got it on sale for $120 - 23" and 1080p is a nice step up from my old 20" 900p monitor - Matte display - Turns on pretty quickly - Can get quite bright (I have it set to 40%) - Bezel isn't too wide - Easy setup - VESA mounting holes - Reader mode

Cons: - Wobbly stand, and it only tilts up and down - No built-in speakers - Only HDMI and VGA inputs

Overall Review: I ordered the monitor Monday night, and the thing came in today (Wednesday) at noon. It hardly took over 36 hours to ship to my doorstep! This is more of a first impressions review, and I may update it as I see fit. As stated in the pros, this was an upgrade from a 20" 900p monitor which is now running alongside it. The matte screen looks awesome. Out of box, the colors aren't very good at all. After a little for about ten minutes, though, I got the colors to a more acceptable level. I'll need to do some final touches at a later time, though. I wish it came with built-in speakers because I don't have any, but for the price I can't complain. The stand is quite wobbly, but if you don't shake your desk much it's not an issue. Matte is awesome compared to a glossy screen. Shining my phone's flashlight at it doesn't make a mirror-like reflection like my glossy monitor does. For some people, only having and HDMI and VGA input might be a bad thing. I would have liked a DP connection, but my graphics card had an open HDMI out, so it worked well for me. The reader mode is a nice touch. If you hold down the "Reader" button, a menu is brought up with two different presets that change the colors to make it easier on the eyes to read. So far I'd definitely recommend it. I've watched some videos, played some games, and browsed the internet and haven't had any issues. I pulled up a white image and didn't see any dead or stuck pixels.
