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: I ordered two of these monitors for a dual display, when they arrived i turned them on and noticed massive white patches on a pitch black screen when in a dark room. The monitors where of a good quality in themselves but the screens where inadequate i requested a refund and had no problems with it.
Good for text editing or gaming, bad for movies or anything where colour calibration/ good darkness is important.

Summary: The backlight bleeds horribly from the bottom left corner and the colours seem to flicker and adjust at will, although the colours once calibrated are good, contrast etc is all good, just a shame it keeps changing colour - incredibly frustrating and I don't understand why it does it. The stand was a joke - very wobbly - but it was VESA mounted anyway so this wasn't an issue.
Summary: Got this 24" monitor in November when I was compiling a new build. I find the picture quality brilliant after fine-tuning some of the settings but there is some light leakage on the bottom of the screen. It comes from both corners with the biggest culprit being the bottom left corner. It's not noticable while going about my daily use of surfing etc but is when the screen goes completely black and isn't TOO distracting while playing games.
Summary: At the time of purchase was cheapest IPS monitor available. I bought two to partner with a Dell U2412M, a monitor that costs almost twice as much. To my surprise these LG monitors seem sharper than the Dell! There is a bit of light bleed on a dark image but it's a non-problem in real use. Many have reported problems with the cheap stand but I used a multi monitor stand instead, bolted to the desk. All in all no regrets!
