Good monitor; Bad LG

Stanislav P., Newegg
24 January 2014
  • Summary: Next time if a monitor comes with bad pixel, I'll make sure to add a paper arrow to the location of the pixel.
  • Pros: Great colors, Great contrast, Great viewing angle. Good response time for an IPS too (great for gaming). Rotating stand is a good idea too. Overall a great product, but...
  • Cons: The monitor came in with a dead pixel. I didn't notice it before NewEgg's warranty expired. It has pretty small pixel size, and I didn't think to look for dead pixels. But that's my fault. I contacted LG, and they offered to pay for shipping, for me to sent it to their tech, and so I did. However...

Inaccurate description on website.

Muhammed A., Newegg
30 December 2011
  • Summary: I would've given 5-star if the size detail was accurate... even at the higher price. I did not call Newegg nor LG prior to ordering. Previous experience has taught me that the phone advisor just reads the same product description that's found online.
  • Pros: Excellent picture quality. Adjustable height. Matte bezel. Very thin and uniform all around. Relatively samll footprint.
  • Cons: 1. the actual witdth is 21.5" and not 20.23" - I checked the LG website and every document on Newegg (including the official pdf) before ordering this monitor. it was ~ $40 more than others in this level but I ordered because the advertised width was perfect for my computer cabinet... 2. No HDMI ...

Quality Control

Franklin R., Newegg
4 July 2011
  • Pros: + E-IPS panel. Great viewing angles compared to TN. + Stand features. It doesn't swivel in the traditional sense. It rotates on a small circular disc below the stand. This rotating disc makes very smooth action but causes the stand to lose some stability. Height, pivot and tilt are acceptable but...
  • Cons: - LG quality control. First one had 3 dead pixels and severe backlight bleeding across the top of the screen. After RMA, I got one with 0 dead/stuck pixels but still had minor backlight bleeding on the right side. -Dynamic Contrast Ratio (DCR) is very annoying on this monitor. It is forced on in ...

Very wobbly base!

Benjamin B., Newegg
24 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought this as an above-average office monitor. In the past, I've targeted IPS panels both because of the color, but also because of superior height/tilt/swivel adjustability. I've done this since the Dell 2209WA and currently have several dozen Dell U and HP ZR series monitors scattered about.
  • Pros: Slim panel, built-in speakers, good color.
  • Cons: Very wobbly base, included power cord is short.

Decent

Andrew T., Newegg
19 May 2011
  • Summary: This panel with a CCFL back-light would have been better. I may return this and go with the Viewsonic instead... I recently purchased the LG TN-panel LED back-lit monitor and it was much, much worse than this one. Spend the extra ~40 bucks and get this one.
  • Pros: -Good adjustable base. I like all the positions you can move it in. -IPS panel itself is pretty good, I feel it would reproduce colors better well with a better back-light. -Acceptably thin bezel, works well for my dual monitor setup. -Built in power supply, I hate external bricks, even if it mak...
  • Cons: Compared to my Acer CCFL back-lit TN monitor that is set up as the second monitor, the colors don't seem natural enough. The blues are too blue as I believe this to be the fault of the LED's. I think they should have used a more neutral or slightly warm LED. Adjusting individual colors/gamma help...

LG IPS Monitor: 178deg H&V viewing angle? really?

grimster, Amazon
10 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought this for it's size, height adjustment and because it is IPS/LED, for an apparently bargain price. According to other reviews, people are impressed by its viewing angle and faithful/consistent colours across a wide range of angles. Great for photo editing apparently.

Nicht schlecht aber keine gute Helligkeit verteilung über den Bildschirm

Ruslan Brandt, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: An sich ist dieser Monitor wohl das Beste was man zu dem Preis finden kann, Farbwiedergabe ist super! Verstellen, drehen alles top. Leider ist die Helligkeit verteilung schlecht bei mir hat auch wie bei einem Vorgänger vor mir die Obere rechte Ecke stärker ausgeleuchtet gewesen.

Unpassend für Multimedia

Alexander Probst, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: Ich hatte diesen LG gewählt, weil er in der mir entsprechenden Preisspanne als das beste Modell erschien. IPS-Panel, schnelle Reaktionszeit, Pivot-Funktion mit stabilem Ständer waren die Gründe für meine Entscheidung.

Moniteur avec son ?

PhL, Amazon
15 May 2012
  • Summary: Mon choix s'est porté sur ce produit parce que ce matériel avait le son. Je suis déçu : le son est très médiocre. Sinon il répond à mes besoins : taille en particulier. Pour la qualité des images, apparemment rien à redire : il faudrait voir 2 moniteurs analogues côte à côte pour faire une...
