Excellent product.

SAND, Amazon

  • Summary: It is fully compatible with all latest graphics card drivers (GTX 680, 580, Radeon 7970 and so on). The color are superb and I love the fact that one can tilt it 90 degrees to read long documents and even x-rays if you are a physician. It is that clear.

Avoid!

  • Summary: I'm not a techie by any means, to provide a reference point for my review. We bought two of these monitors, one for each of our desktops - and we loved them. Sleek, w - i - d - e , clear, no pixel problems, easy controls, multiple inputs. The small issue: I couldn't use HDMI - it would shift my image in such a way that part of my screen was permanently cropped, no matter what I did to reduce/shift/re-ratio it. Easy fix - I used my VGA plug - and it still looks GREAT.

Crappy Backlight Dimming Monitor

Popeye, Amazon
21 November 2011
  • Summary: Stay away from the LG monitors. My LG L246WP-BN 24-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor started screen fading after the 2nd year of medium use. First the left side of the panel started dimming, and then after the 3-rd year at reboot the whole screen is flashing for 5 minutes before lights up at about 50% of its original brightness. The repair is very costly and is not worth repairing. Other people are reporting similar problems with LG monitors. I will switch to other brands.

Be careful, display won't work properly with newer GPU's!

Kevin Collins "KevinCol", Amazon
12 May 2010
  • Summary: This display will not work with newer GPU's (i.e. NVidia Ion, NVidia Quadro FX 880M, etc.) in any resolution. The display moves the screen to the top and to the left cropping off the rest of the display area, making it unuseable. Calls to LG were useless as I wasted hours talking to people that were clueless. Make sure you have a return policy before buying this display! I have two of them and neither will work with my new GPU's.

More than what I needed

Alex Ngo, Amazon
1 February 2008
  • Summary: I bought the monitor online without realizing that 24" in a widescreen format could be so big. For now, since I only mostly use office applications this is more than enough. But the other qualities of the screen are great. It's bright - you definitely don't need a night light with this, and the rumors about being able to read books with this light - it's true. Graininess is not a problem, as this is obviously a recent-generation flat panel.

Excellent Value

Todd J. Hoover, Amazon

  • Summary: The monitor requires a bit of work but has excellent color once you get it calibrated. Arrived in perfect condition, everything as advertised, no dead or stuck pixels. The stand is sturdy and stable. No noticeable ghosting in games. I had to change fonts and modify my desktop text and menu settings to use clear type smoothing to get everything to look really good.

Washed out colors and detail with reasonable brightness settings

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this monitor after seeing all the five stars... boy was I disappointed. First, the monitor fails to resume from power save mode unless you disable the DDC/CI option in the menu. Second, and most importantly, the picture quality is unbearable to my eyes. No matter how I adjusted the brightness, contrast and color temperature I could never find a combination that worked for me. I'd either have searing bright whites or muddy detail...

I really love this display.

subtitles, Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: I've been looking for a good 1920x1200 display for a little over a year now. The Apple 23" had bad backlight bleed, and by today's standards is now old technology. HP has an interesting 1920x1200 model, but glossy display reflected too much, was rather wobbly, and the stand is spring-loaded - making it quite difficult to repack.

Awesome Monitor

D. Shawver "gwrace", Amazon
14 November 2007
  • Summary: This is a great full featured LCD monitor that includes a P-MVA panel. I've been using if everyday for photo editing and gaming. So far I can't find one thing I don't like about this panel. Shop around for price. I purchased this exact same monitor at Fry's for $499, brand new and not refurbished with free shipping. ------------------------------------------- After owning this monitor for 1.5 years it died from a bad power supply.

Great HDMI monitor with all the bells & whistles

Brian Stretch, Amazon
17 July 2007
  • Summary: I suddenly found myself in need of a monitor with more inputs so I purchased this one. The HDMI input is particularly well done: there's a standard headphone jack on the left edge (next to the two USB ports) for listening to HDMI audio. I tested this with my AT&T U-verse DVR's HDMI output successfully. I imagine that the HDMI audio feature of the new ATI 2xxx-series video cards will work too. LG includes a HDMI-to-DVI monitor cable and a VGA cable.
