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: 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: 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: 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!
Summary: Bought it some months ago, and it has all that I want. Having it in a two-monitor scenario with my pc and the panel quality is just awesome. The best 24-inch monitor that you can get for that price.
