Summary: It's not the best monitor on earth, with all the features. But for a basic non LED, cost effective widescreen for the a desktop. It's a relative bargain at $100 for both the cost of the monitor a the shipping. It's great in a day, when all the formatting on the computer has gone to widescreen. I needed a Value of a monitor at a great price and this fit the bill quite well and I'm happy with it.
Summary: When I bought this monitor, I thought I would get a nice backup monitor for my law office. I was supprised to find I bought a large monitor excellent monitor. The seller was very fast in shipping the item.
Summary: I have purchased several different brands of Flatscreen monitors in the past few years. I've bought ViewSonic, LG Dell and Magnavox monitors and some other generic ones (I can't recall the brand). This was my thirs LG purchase -- The LG picture is far superior to the other ones I have used. There have been absolutely no dead pixels in any of the LG monitors. I just bought another 24 inch LG and I have to say it, too is excellent!
Summary: I purchased this LG to replace a Dell 20" widescreen monitor. Setup & installation was a snap, although I found the defaul monitor settings to be set, by default, to "torch" mode. After installing the Forte Manager software from the enclosed, CD, adjustment of monitor settings was a snap. Impressive 2ms response time on this puppy! Base swivels the entire monitor & stand and it's not height-adjustable, but that's OK in my case. The dell had four USB ports built-in.
Summary: This is a good monitor. But the default factory setting by LG is quite unacceptable (as of 2007). Just like a reviewer elsewhere mentioned, the default settings turn light gray objects into light green. If your unit also looks greenish, try the following setting (I hope LG can reset their default settings to these values too): 1. All the buttons mentioned here are counted from the left side of the monitor. o Press the 2nd key to enter the menu.
Summary: I've used this monitor for a day now, and still can't take my eyes off it every time I step into the room. The striking black and white glossy bezel gives this a distinctively different feel from the drab matt black pastic that surrounds most other lcds. Apart from that, the color reproduction from our photos was amazing at the default settings, the high contrast, even if it is dynamic, reproduces details that are invisible on my glossy dell laptop display.
Summary: I don't have an expert eye for judging monitors, but I rely heavily on these reviews, and feel that I should contribute every so often. I don't have a lot to say, other than this is a very good monitor, and I'm glad that I got it. I have one laptop (out of several computer) which won't adjust to the monitor's native 1680x1050 resolution, but I'll have to blame the manufacturer since all of my other computers can, including one laptop which is two years older than the one...
Summary: So, let's see: a bad pixel near the middle of the screen right out of the box; they put a stupid "Windows Vista Certified" sticker on the bottom corner of the monitor and the glue used to hold it to the frame spilled onto the screen itself at the factory so I had the spend 15 minutes cleaning the glue off the display with citrus de-greaser; the display is not remarkably crisp even at the highest supported resolution; the rear plastic housing already shows slight warpage...
Summary: I have no dead pixel or ghosting effect. This thing is amazing and has sharper word text compare to the Gateway FPD2275W 22", which has less contrast and response time. I do believe it is almost the same thing as the similar spec Samsung 226BW LCD. The panel is very simple also and there is not much to adjust when you use DVI. I did have to adjust when I hooked it up to my laptop via VGA. Running at full 1680x1050 this is where it shines.
