Summary: We were looking for a new monitor to replace a failed CRT, wandered into Best Buy, looked at an arraay of 10 -20 LCD/LED monitors and all three of us picked out the LG E2242T-BN. High resolution, vivid color, LED backlit and very competitively priced. We did something we rarely do, we bought it on the spot, took it home, plugged it in and went about our business........... SWEET!
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: Nice monitor, like the wide-screen view. The only thing I don't like is it has a small post for support and the mounting is a little wobbly - when I am typing it wiggles a little. A pair of supports instead of 1 would probably work better, or if the mounting bracket was a little wider.
Pros: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: I imagine this screen has some issues that people with more discerning eyes than I will critique, however for me it is great and a great value. I had previously purchased an asus monitor which had a very odd issue when there was any lateral movement, either on the screen or if you physically moved in your seat in a consistent direction.
