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.
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. We have another 236 from a different vendor that we got about a year ago. Why we didn't get 2 at that time is only due to the fact that the CRT was still kicking.
Summary: I recently finished a new desktop and wanted to go with a 3 monitor setup. I researched for about 2 weeks. It was narrowed down to about 6 choices. From there it was price to performance that the LG Flatron IPS236V-PN 23" was my choice. I purchased 3 of these monitors used on eBay. The color, clarity, sharpness, and response time was even better than I anticipated. Plus I saved a lot of money. An absolutely great product.
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. You can't go wrong with this monitor, it is a great buy for the money. LG seems to have some of the better product coming out of China.
Summary: I researched for days looking for the right monitor for my first new computer in 11 years. At first I was looking at Samsungs but their monitor quality has gone down in their new generation. I looked into the Viewsonic and ASUS monitors, however, they didn't have the right connectivity that I needed (both DVI and HDMI), they didn't have good professional reviews, or they just didn't look sexy enough.
Summary: After doing research into monitors, I decided on a IPS monitor and then chose this LG model IPS236V. I am getting a new laptop for trading and need an appropriate HD, HDMI monitor to support this type of application. Everything you will read in reviews about the performance characteristics of this monitor I find to be true. I am very pleased with it in every way.
Summary: I purchased one of these (refurbished) for dirt cheap. WOW I am IMPRESSED (no dead pixels!). This is my first IPS screen, so I can't really compare with any of the other well known Dell UltraSharps or HPs, but I can say with absolute certainty that these are head and shoulders above all the TN panels I've ever owned.
An excellent monitor for someone needing exact color representation.

Summary: This monitor was a shock to me. Especially when I first plugged it in. The colors were all wrong and I tried to use the presets, but could never get the color right. Then I calibrated it with a Spyder 3 Pro. Excellent picture now. I use it mostly for photographic processing (amateur) and I can't say enough about it. It is an excellent monitor.
Summary: Very satisfied with this product. Good quality at a great price point. I use it primarily for text since I am in the legal profession but the graphics and colors are very good. Not quite my LaCie321 but this monitor wasn't $1500 either. Darn close in quality though.
Not the best IPS monitor, but the best $200 monitor

Summary: Took it out of the box, and after letting it warm up I calibrated it with a Spyder3. The monitor was pretty good with the default monitor profile but after calibration it looked outstanding. Mine does not have the backlight bleed others have reported nor does it have any stuck pixels. The IPS panel really does put every other $200-ish LCD I've ever seen to shame. It may not be one of the best-looking IPS monitor made but it is one of the best-looking $200 monitors made.
