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.
Summary: A short extension cord easily rectifies the problem of the short power cable. Other reviewers have considered the fact that this monitor has an external power brick as a con. I feel that anything that saves weight inside the monitor itself is a pro, especially when using a swing arm mount.
Pros: Nice picture after adjustments. Very light weight. My swing arm mount supports it easily. Fast enough for gaming. Excellent sale price.
Cons: Very short power supply cable. Poorly optimized settings from factory. More input options would have been nice. The supplied monitor stand is pretty wobbly and it does not rotate. Doesn't come supplied with HDMI cable.
Summary: I help several businesses and people by building PCs, configuraing networks, and offering my advice. This LG monitor bought on sale was a steal and is a great monitor at the regular Newegg price. I will buy more in the future.
Pros: Clear bright display. Crisp and clean.
Cons: I am not a fan of the wall brick but it's no Big Deal.
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.
