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 brushed aluminum looking finish. Comes with a cable for each input type. No dead or stuck pixels.
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 it is only noticeable on dark screens and not that bothersome to me. 2) Crosshatching. It is not too bad, as I only really notice it on a white screen if I lean in such that my...
Great monitor in a market flooded with bad quality panels.

Summary: They really need to explain about taking that pin out of the monitor stand to allow height adjustment. None of the included documentation mentions it and I was pulling pretty hard to try and get it to adjust before I noticed the pin. Could've accidentally broken it.
Pros: No dead pixles. No backlight bleeding. Minimal glow (gets even more minimal when brightness is lowered). Great stand. Great looking design to bezel and stand. Power brick can be mounted on monitor. Not insanely expensive (found it cheaper somewhere else ).
Cons: I like how the power brick can be mounted on the back of the display, but the chord needs to be way longer. It barely reaches anywhere. Really seems like it was build for someone who has a self contained desk power strip that then goes out to the actual power outlet.
Summary: One other annoyance --the power adaptor's cord to the monitor is so short that the power supply can be only on the desk or hanging off. Why cheap out on this and not make it long enough to reach to the floor?
Pros: The color gamut, mechanical integrity and ergonomics, clarity of image, speed, not a single bad pixel or any of the light leakage or faint lines a couple of others have mentioned.
Cons: A shipping pin in the column is hard to remove. Tried a swiss army knife can opener, ordinary household pliers, and then a small slot screwdriver worked to get it out. To LG's credit they do put a small clear label over the pin to tell you it should be removed- unambiguous.
Summary: There were faint diagonal lines in the bottom half of the display. This occurred on all 3 computers I tried attaching to the monitor. I RMA'd it, but the replacement had the same problem, so i returned returned it.
Pros: Physically, the hardware is attractive looking, and feels like it has solid, quality construction.
Cons: If the room is dark, the lighting wasn't even when displaying black/dark colors.
