Excerpt: I bought this looking to upgrade from a previous 21.5" monitor. This was the cheapest decent IPS monitor in this size and price range.
The difference was between night and day compared to my old monitor. Out of the box this looked great for me.
Pros: Quality, Features/Settings, easy to use, Performance, Style/Design
Summary: These were purchased by my workplace, but they are essentially the exact same model. They replaced Dell 24 inch class monitors (23 inch usable) and the LG is better. Not only more viewable area, but half the weight. I use a multiple monitor stand and the weight affects the ease of adjustment.
Pros: Compared to other 27 inch class monitors, this one is right in the middle, which is a very good thing, considering the price. It does not have speakers, which is a plus because at work they would be a nuisance. Monitor speakers are rarely worthwhile anyway. I did need to make display adjustments,...
Cons: No cons, really. The specs state no DVI input. I use DVI to HDMI adapter cables and the result is flawless. I used adapter bricks but theyprotruded too far from the back of my docking port replicator, so I got cables and no problem at all. The adapters can be found for less than $5 and cables les...
Pros: Light weight! Thin! Low power usage. Great picture. I'm not using it for gaming so I do not know about the ultra high speed response. But for general usage I love it. I have 4 of these for my servers.
Cons: Have not found any yet. and have had some of this model for over a year.
Summary: I wound up using the "27MP33.icm" color profile that came on the included CD. (The default profile in Fedora was making everything look way too dark.) I couldn't find the file anywhere on LG's website so you might not want to throw your disk away.
Pros: This was really a great deal with the free 128 GB SSD. It has much better viewing angles than my old LG 22" monitor (L227WTG), uses less power, and is lighter. It doesn't really wobble any more than my old monitor did. No dead pixels and very bright.
Cons: The power cord wasn't long enough to reach my battery backup unit. I wasted a lot of time tweaking the default settings before discovering the ICM profile on the installation disk. I wish the stand would swivel. A one year warranty seems a bit short for a monitor.
Pros: This is the best monitor you can purchase for the money. I bought two of them using GTX 760 SC 2GB. Wish i had bigger desk to run 3 monitor. Picture looks great on both, colors same
Cons: Downside is there are no dvi and my GPU only has dvi-i and dvi-d and hdmi. Hdmi is taken for my 50inch Lg tv out in living room. Dvi-i to vga adapter is being used for one of this lg monitor and dvi-d to hdmi cable is being used for this second lg monitor.
Summary: I chose this monitor , because LG is known for quality products.I also chose it because of its size and specs. I bought it here because N.E. has the best price and service of any on line retail electronics sellers period.
Pros: Nice clear bright display. Thin. I had just wanted a bigger monitor but was surprised at how much better the display is to the old one. Also makes my TV as second monitor look bad in comparison. By the way, black borders on HDMI is easily fixed by going to overscan options in video card settings.
Cons: No DVI. DVI is nice to use as an input switch. Base is flimsy but I'm not using it.
