Summary: We had purchased a custom built $1600 laptop from a company specializing in power notebooks. However, laptop monitor was pixel walking and my daughters eyes have gone so bad in past year, that we got an additional monitor, once we discovered it was the laptop screen damage. I was worried the cheap monitors would be bad as well, but albeit not 100% perfect it is a lot better than her laptop.
Summary: I give this a 5 stars because the LCD is pretty good. You have to calibrate it though as the defaults are probably not what you want. I feel for the $116 I paid, it's a pretty sweet deal. This doesn't include a DVI cable, just a VGA/D-Sub cable which makes sense since it's an old standard so everyone should be able to use it while not everyone has DVI. I'm using the DVI cable. Your mileage may vary with the VGA/D-Sub cable, as quality depends on quality of the cable.
Summary: On its own this monitor looks great. When compared to my other monitor (a higher end Acer) it looks average; I have dual monitors. For the price, it is a great It lost a star because it has one dead pixel!
Excerpt: This monitor has such a poor viewing angle and light blacks that I actually sent mine back, thinking that it was faulty. After "extensive testing" no fault was found. So I guess that its just a poor quality display and not faulty.
Excerpt: I am very happy with this monitor. The picture is fantastic and the resolution is nothing short of amazing. The wide screen allows me to view two pages at a time when writing reports in Word. I will definately recommend LG products to my friends and family.
Excerpt: this monitor was simple to connect to my computer.the graffics are great.so far I can't find any thing about this monitor that is not desirable but I don't particularly like the red light on the on/off switch.i think that it should have been blue .but that is a very minor problem.i still think this is a very nice monitor for the money value.
Pros: Easy to use, Features/Settings, Performance, Quality, style/design
Excerpt: This is a great monitor and has very sharp images and colors with a really bright screen. I highly recommend this monitor for anyone, and the price is right. I am going to purchase another as a second monitor as I like to use 2 screens for my work.
