Summary: I have two dead pixels in under a year of ownership. One on the bottom left of the screen, which doesn't bother me too much, but another in the dead centre which I constantly see while trying to game. Very distracting. Would have liked this monitor to last me more than 1 year...
Colors are HORRIBLE and display not easy on the eyes, at all...

Summary: Simply put, this monitor is pretty much unusable if you care about color at all. I had two NEC flatpanel LCD monitors, and the colors on these are pretty similar to everything I've used before, including 17" flatpanel Dell LCD's that I have at work. One of my NEC's started to give out, so I went looking for a new monitor and the salesman talked me into this one. It looked great in the store.
Summary: Yes, it's a nice monitor. But I do not like picture quality, colors are not natural, the monitor has a purple hue, even if you set 6500K, 7500K 9300K 8500k activates the powerful blue. The shop where I bought, some clients have returned the monitor and bought another product. Maybe he needs a revision to the software, I do not know. But as they say most customers, stayed all day to adjust the colors correctly and failed.
Summary: The cable connector interface is not secure once cables are installed there is movement in the connector module that I have not experience with other monitors. LG wants you to see its sleek side profie, but look at it after your cables are installed, it will not be as far back on your desk as you might want it. No DVI cable is provided. You will need a ringt angle adaptor to maximize your workspace realestate.
Summary: Very thin, very light. Unfortunately wobbles at the slightest movement on the desk due to the lightweight plastic stand. I could never get good colour from this so sent it back, spent ages trying to tune it in via the menus. Bought a Samsung LED screen instead which has much better picture & build quality.
Summary: Bought this mointor to use as an additional monitor for an extended desktop. the colourimetry is a little disappointing considering it is LED back lit, but it can be adjusted with a fair bit of messing about, eventually you can get it to look OK. One of the main reasons for chosing this monitor was for the digital input, either DVI or HDMI. The PC's ATI graphics card DVI connector was already taken up with the default monitor, so you'd think OK I'll just use the HDMI!
Summary: Lovely looking product, excellent Amazon service - right down to my returning it because of the LG's poor rendition of type. This is particularly important to me in my work typesetting and producing magazine artwork in Quark Express. I tried many settings using the existing windows XP drivers and the ones supplied on LG's disc - and using the product's proper resolution as stated in its spec.
