Great Monitors

Tara Z., Newegg
6 December 2014
  • Pros: Great Monitors. I bought two of them to use side by side as I do a lot of multitasking while running Revit and CAD. Had them a year now and still working perfectly, no dead pixels. I still haven't seen anything that would make me want to upgrade from these...
  • Cons: None so far.

Very nice but...

D K Bach, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice monitor. Big screen and several inputs. Resolution is awsome when viewing and editing pics. Game graphics are bold smooth, even at fast paced motions. Really useful at dual screens, shows a larger window in both so scolling is down to a minimum, no need to flip back and forth between windows.

Excellent monitor

ChrisGeek, Amazon
20 May 2014
  • Summary: I have been using this monitor for about 2 months now and I love it. It has great color reproduction and a crystal clear resolution. My only beef with it is that it makes a high-pitch squeal while it's in standby mode. I think it's related to the internal USB 3.0, but everything works great.

LG 27EA83R-D - RMA

Stamen S., Newegg
17 April 2014
  • Summary: The first monitor dropped dead after three weeks. Fortunately, it was in the 30 guarantee period and the newegg RMA was a breeze. This second monitor does have some issues but they are minor for me. The dead pixel is at the most lower right corner and is not visible unless you actively look for it.
  • Pros: This is a second review for monitor LG 27EA83R-D. See the previous review for all the pros - it's a great monitor.
  • Cons: This one has one dead pixel and cross hatching at the lower part of the screen.

LG 27EA83R-D Ocean Black 27"

Stamen S., Newegg
15 March 2014
  • Summary: I got this baby on sale for $499. I think that this monitor is the best bang for the buck at this price. I also checked out the ASUS PB278Q Dell U2713HM. The Asus does not have a USB hub and the Dell reviews report many back-light bleeding and cross hatching issues.
  • Pros: Reputable brand. Sleek design and great built quality. 1440p No dead/stuck pixels. Pre-calibrated. Price (when it's on sale). Inputs/outputs and packaging. Comes with the needed cables for 1440p, software drivers and calibration software. You will need a calibrator (sold separately) if you wan't ...
  • Cons: USB inputs are on the back and are not easy to reach. Most monitors have those on the side which is more convenient. The buttons are kind of awkward to use but I think I'll get used to them.

Good, not great

William B., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: There is a price point at which I would have found the cons I listed, however minor, to be unacceptable. I picked this when it was at a very good sale price though, so I find myself content with it. If you're picky, you probably won't be satisfied this.
  • Pros: Overall its a pretty nice monitor. Color is very good and comes pretty well calibrated out of the box, with little need for adjustment. The OSD menu is fully-featured and easy to use. The stand is very well made and functional. I really like the aesthetics of the bezel and base with the nice brus...
  • Cons: Image quality is good, but not great. There are 2 issues that made me dock an egg. 1) Being an IPS panel, it is prone to IPS glow (aka PLS glow) which can look similar to backlight bleeding. This can vary monitor to monitor. The one I received has a bit of glow from the bottom-right corner, but i...

LG 27" monitor

B. Parris, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: A professional photographer recommended this LG monitor to me and he was right! Vivid, true colors were expected and that's what it provides. I found no dead pixels on any of the colors. The built-in color correction program/feature allows any fine tuning desired. Expensive...
