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.
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: 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.
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...
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.
Summary: I primarily purchased this for a gaming computer. I play a mix of FPS and RTS and have no complaints. No lag or ghosting, good color and white balance, excellent viewing angles, and very light to carry around to parties.
