5 stars for the monitor, 1 star for the touchscreen.

Jeremy A., Newegg

  • Summary: 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.
  • 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...
  • 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 th...

Awesome product, reasonably priced

  • Summary: Bought to go with Windows 8. Beautiful screen, fast refresh rate, responsive to touch, great graphics. Instructions supplied with the unit leave a bit to be desired. The USB A-B cable for the touch not included. All in all very pleased with this item.

Great monitor

Lee, Amazon

  • Summary: I just ordered my second LG 23ET83V monitor. This is a solid easy to setup monitor. It connects to the HDMI port on my laptop and a separate USB connection supports the touch screen features. It comes with a DVD which has the drivers and manual. Do not lose the DVD!

Looks great and responds fast.

  • Summary: It's just a great monitor, and we love it. It's attached to a Win8 PC running the Intel integrated graphics, which is primarily used for casual gaming and office/internet tasks. The "display" part of the display is great. The touch encoder is very responsive.

Pos: + super fast (5 ms) and modern AH-IPS display + Full-HD + 10 point touchscreen + stable stand Cons: - no DVI port - in my box, there no was D-SUB...

Shipped With WRONG Power Cord

Michael Williams, Amazon
29 August 2013
  • Summary: Caution...I bought this monitor and it shipped with the entirely wrong power cord. How could LG do that? Hopeless. I contacted customer support and was told it would take 7-10 business days to send me the correct one. So here my brand new monitor sits for over a week. I am super frustrated.

If you want a single monitor with touch screen this one is pretty good.

traveler, Amazon
29 August 2013
  • Summary: What I wanted was an IPS236V with touch screen to go along with the other IPS236V monitors I have. This one is a little heavier and slicker, it has a beefy base that cannot be removed and no VESA mounting. The touch screen works well with Linux if you are in a single screen configuration.

Great Affordable Touchscreen

Bill J., Newegg
9 July 2013
  • Summary: This monitor is being used on a Windows 8 computer for my grandma. She absolutely loves it. Easy to use, touch works great. Just plug it in and it works.
  • Pros: No transition on the bezel to screen. This means that when swiping to get the menus on windows 8 you have a nice easy smooth transition. Great Picture Quality. Great Touch Response
  • Cons: The menu buttons for the monitor (power, input, adjust settings) are on the front on the bezel. So it is possible to accidentally press them when working toward the bottom of the screen (they should be hard buttons on the side). Does NOT come with an HDMI cable. This dumbfounded me as this is a 1...

Use Upside Down for Best Touch

Paul P., Newegg
28 June 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Phenomenal color, clarity and touch response
  • Cons: Stand designed primarily for upright use as a traditional monitor

Good IPS Touch Screen

Megan T., Newegg
23 June 2013
  • Summary: Although the RMA was a hassle (-1 egg), this is a great deal at 350-450. I Would never pay 600+ for ANY monitor unless it were a 27" 3D 120Hz OC 10-point Touchscreen IPS Panel w/ 2560x1440 res... But those don't exist :p
  • Pros: This is a great IPS panel. As a display alone, this screen will impress once it is calibrated. The colors are true-to-life and you will be surprised at what you can see within the image details of a photo, 3D animations, or just plain web graphics. Touchscreen functionality is plug and play for b...
  • Cons: Had to RMA first unit as it would flake out on any Win7 or Win8 system I connected it to. I have numerous custom builds that my family and I are either using or have around for clients and the monitor would do the same thing on any system I connected it to--The touch sensor would assume it was be...
