Summary: I've got two of these that purchased at the Black Friday sale. For $150 a piece these are an absolute steal. I use two 8-bit IPS panels at work (HP can't remember model). They have better back-lighting, and slightly better colour (little more neutral). However, for home use these are perfect and can't complain given the price. I would say this is the best value monitor out there.. seriously. One has slightly more bleed than the other, and both came with zero dead pixels.
Pros: - Good Colour, - Fast enough response (no ghosting that I can see), - Stand is nice
Cons: - No HDMI, - Internal Speakers (might as well use a tin can), - Lack of cable management
Summary: Watching shows or movies on this is great. have to get really close before i start to see any of the grains. Originally bought this when it was on sale but price has come down to when i got it on sale.
Pros: Crisp & very Bright had to turn down was too bright., Like the high adjustable stand.
Summary: This monitor had everything I was looking for when I purchased it. However it is not perfect. Pros Tilt, swivel, and height adjustments IPS display (technically it is E-IPS) 16.7 million color display (it is not 8-bit but technically "6-bit + Hi-FRC" Stands out well, not too extreme or flashy Great price if you shop around Cons I don't really like the LED lighting. It makes all black screens have a bit of a blueish glow to them.
Summary: Unfortunately the monitor I got has a dead pixel. It's not stuck pixel, it's dead (constantly black). The monitor has a fairly high pixel density, so I didn't notice that pixel for quite some time. By the time I noticed it newegg's warranty expired. So I called LG, and they agreed to repair it. 3 weeks without the monitor and it came back.
Pros: Great bang for the buck.
Cons: None really. Not for the price anyway. You may want a USB hub in it or an hdmi port, but that'd be extra features, that would raise the price.
Summary: I got this monitor because I do a bit of photo editing and wanted a monitor with good color reproduction, and $200 for an decent-sized IPS LED monitor was hard to pass up. If a little bit of bleedthrough isn't going to annoy you, and you want a monitor with good color, this is for you. otherwise, if it will annoy you, and/or your monitor is going to be displaying dark scenes a lot that might bring out the bleedthough, it might be a good idea to look for a nicer monitor.
Pros: Great color, good size, IPS and LED.
Cons: The monitor does have a bit of bleedthrough from the LEDs (specifically a some light bleeding from the left side of the monitor, and a little square of light in the middle of the monitor). Its normally not very visibly, you can only really ever notice it if the monitor is really dark. However, after testing Skyrim on it and playing at night, the bleedthrough is getting a bit too noticeable for my taste, making me consider returning it for a nicer, more expensive IPS m...
Summary: We have about 25 of these monitors in our company. I'm using 3 at once right now (2 vertical and 1 horizontal). The pivot is absolutely amazing. The picture quality could be better, and it is a bit dark looking at the monitor from wide angles, but you wouldn't get this effect while sitting at a desk. In fact, we prefer that it darkens on wide angles so that other people in the office can't see your screen too easily :) Price is great, and they look great together.
Pros: price, pivot, small stand, reasonably thin bevel
Cons: picture quality code be better, hard to see on angles
