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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
