Summary: Would like to take a moment to criticize Barbara M. and her useless review. I understand it is frustrating when your package is not complete, or in your case you threw the screws to the stand out.
Pros: Price - Got the monitor on sale and with coupon for $169.99 Colors - IPS display produces very nice natural colors. Some will complain that the picture is dark, but to me it is more natural and not washed out. Even on a word document the white is very white and black is very black making the text...
Cons: Stand is a bit flimsy, most these days seem to be. Power is a wall wart, would prefer a standard power cable with internal PSU or a power brick with a standard chord.
Summary: I bought this on sale and do not regret it at all. I had not purchased an LG monitor before and did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this monitor.
Pros: Great color, with some calibration I couldn't be more pleased. Analog sound output was an unexpected plus as the computer it is hooked up to, an Alienware Alpha does not have one. I can now send sound via HDMI and pass it through the monitor to my speakers which saved me a few bucks instead of bu...
Cons: If I had to nitpick I would have to say the power adapter is a bit of a letdown as it is rather large (of course this allows LG to make the monitor thinner) and blocks two plug slots on my surge protector. Of course, this can be alleviated by plugging it in on the end so it really isn't that big ...
Pros: For the price I don't think this thing can be beat @179 w/ the promo code. I haven't noticed any problems with it, yet. As usual I had to turn the brightness way down for my use. I'm in a room with full sunlight on 3 sides and have no problem. 27 inches might be a bit large for 1080 resolution, b...
Cons: The stand is a bit wobbly, but it has VESA mounting holes available. Blinking white light when it goes into standby mode, but you can power it off to avoid that.
Summary: The refresh rate and response time seems to be spot on, 60hz-5ms, you have to change the response time otherwise it looks bad. I went to this monitor from a 2ms 1080p 75hz samsung syncmaster and I will never look back.
Pros: Black Friday deal for $179.99 Great lighting have not had issues with being to dark at all. Great for 1080p 60Hz Gaming. Nice construction No dead pixels
Cons: Honestly for the price of the monitor I do not seem any cons.
I paid a good price on ebay for it, it works excellent, no problems.

Summary: Overall I am very happy with this monitor. It was as big as I wanted and expected. The dot pitch is a little big but I expected that. I'm coming from a 22" monitor where the dot pitch was smaller. I couldn't afford a 144p 27" so it was a worthwhile trade off.
Summary: I wanted a large monitor for my new computer and this one seemed to be the best bang for the buck. and so far it is. The only issue i have is with the on off button and for that matter the other ones as well. they are to sensitive. if you bump them even very slightly the monitor shuts off.
