Summary: I bought this monitor to use as the viewing screen for my cable modem and it works great. Using the HDMI input from the cable box and the headphone jack for a set of speakers, this monitor views all the TV channels in an excellent manner. The 5 million to 1 contrast ratio, 178 degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles, 5 ms response time, 1920 x 1080 resolution, HDMI input and audio output jack make it ideal for my application.
Summary: EDIT: I see now it's $179.. geez, what a fluctuation in pricing! I don't know why on earth this monitor has gone up in price since I purchased it 8/27/13 for $197. Wow. Any how, it's a nice monitor, seems crisp, and it's quick to 'wake up.' My only problem with it, the stand is downright wobbly. If you glance the thing, it sits there and wobbles back and forth. Cheap, cheap.
Summary: Super sharp picture. Dark blacks. Brilliant bluray quality. Completely stupid cord input placement. Seriously.why do the plugs stick straight out towards the wall? Defeats the purpose of a slim screen. Amazing picture. Compares easily to dell ultra sharp for half the price. Highly recommend even with crazy cord setup.
Summary: I purchased this monitor because I needed a monitor that would be compatible with my work (PC) and home (MacBook Pro) laptops. I am currently using the adapter to connect to my Mid 2012 MacBook Pro laptop, which requires a mini-display/thunderbolt port. I like this monitor for the simple design. It has the ports that you need (e.g. HDMI, DVI, and VGA). It also has an audio out jack. The colors are nice and crisp with its 1080P resolution.
Summary: This is one of the top monitors on displaylag.com, and that's why I bought it. Additionally, the IPS panel is exceptionally clear. The stand is decent, and was easy to install. Overall, an outstanding purchase.
Summary: Gorgeous image quality on this, with no noticable light bleed, even on a black screen. Text is razor sharp, and the blacks are so deep that initially I thought something was wrong with the monitor...I was just used to my old monitor's washed-out color. That said, there are a couple surprising missteps. The stand, from other site reviews, is awful.
Worked great, only problem is the very flimsy stand

Summary: Worked great, only problem is the very flimsy stand. I seriously don't understand what LG were thinking when deciding that the stand would be good enough, because it is nowhere near good enough.
