Summary: Instructions for setup need much improvement by someone who speaks good English. LG should learn to respect customers, rather than belittling them for not knowing things not covered in the instructions.
Pros: Great picture once adjusted. I use the Huey Pro to get the colors right on. Picture is very bright and sharp with no noticeable ghosting or smearing, but I don't subject it to the demands of serious gaming.
Cons: When first set up there were large black borders which I couldn't adjust away. LG told me to examine video card settings, but were of no more help. Their attitude was very condescending, falling just short of calling me stupid. There was nothing in the instructions about this. After much trial and error, I finally got it right. Once in a while, the monitor fails to recognize the computer video signal on boot up. It goes into power saving mode, and won't recognize the ...
Summary: Unit would not work right in the suggested resolution (1920x1080) without a black border around the screen. Found that my AMD R9 270x has a scaling option int he control panel that had to be adjusted. A non-tech person would not have found this and LG support was no help since they never came into the chat window.
Pros: Inexpensive for a larger, IPS & HDMI monitor, Good OSD menu navigation. Great picture once you finally get it dialed in.
Cons: Unit likes to turn itself all the way off and not wake up when the PC sleeps regardless of how the built in power saving settings are configured.
LG 23MP55HP-P monitor without speakers and having no up-down adjustment.

Summary: Enjoy this monitor for more than two weeks. I'm happy with the purchase. Well packaged, very easy to assemble, the stand could be a bit (!) more robust but is OK. Shininess of the stand does not bother me at all. A small negative aspect of the design is lack of visible markings for function keys that are under lower-RH corner of the panel. Whiteness and uniformity of the screen is commendable. When the monitor was switch on, the picture was rather discouraging.
Summary: This is a great monitor for a reasonable price. Features to like about it: * easy to assemble - took about 3-4 minutes * easy to adjust * color is great - color is realistic and vivid * good sized screen - 23 inches * cables included - power cable and cable to computer * well-packaged - arrived in perfect shape The intensity feature was at 100%. I reduced it to 45%. Only suggestion for improvement for the company is to enlarge the print for the buttons on the monitor.
