Summary: I already had one of these monitors, but couldn't stand not having a dual monitor setup anymore. The monitor is a great one, especially for the price. It's not the best IPS monitor out there, but again, the price is right. The monitor itself is 4 stars.
Summary: I mated this with an existing LG IPS236V and this "refirb" is as good as the original product that I purchased from Best Buy and not near the cost. We all know "refirbs" can be a hit and miss thing but this one hit the mark. Has been in service for several months and is working as desired.
Good image quality at good price, poor stand, indicators and controls

Summary: Was a good price when I bought it. Quality of picture was good and viewing angles fantastic. Perhaps the anti glare coating was too strong which gave slightly blurry text. Horribly stand - mine fell over with a small bump and broke.
Summary: I bought one at walmart last year. The on/off switch has always been intermittent. Now it's off and I can't get it back on. I'm not sure how wide-spread this problem is. If you're thinking about buying one, do a little research.
Summary: LG IPS236V 23" 1080p HDMI Widescreen LED Monitor is vertually identical to the LG IPS235* MONITOR with one major exception...THE STAND. All the bad reviews on the 235's don't seem to be technical but stand related. This heavier stand fixes those concerns.
Summary: To be sure, the IPS panel in the IPS234 series monitors is good quality. The LCD backlight is overly bright, even at the lowest settings, but the color and images are wonderful. What destroys the value here is the monitor pedestal, which is around an inch wide.
Summary: I got a deal on this monitor, I did not pay more than $150, including shipping. So, for that price, it's pretty decent. It's good a good picture quality, though I expected IPS to be way sharper images than normal LED's...The IPS improvements are not that discernible.
Summary: I looked at many monitors and chose this one after allot of research, and I am not disappointed! I saw a few people complain about bleed through from the backlite, mine does not. It has an awesome picture, everything from pics, to HD movies, to graphics simulation is perfect.
Summary: A few folks have complained about text with this monitor, but I suspect they didn't find the "mode" menu with the option for text, nor (more importantly) are they using the display's optimum resolution.
