Summary: Of all the monitors I have had thus far, this was my favorite. I got it with my first build, but I didn't know how lucky I was. Later I picked up an ASUS 23" for dual-screen, and side by side you could see that the LG blew the ASUS out of the park. Specifically the best part is the blacks. The ASUS had ok blacks, but next to the LG they looked crappy. (Kind of bugged me, though that's not the LG's fault, hehe.
Summary: This monitor is definitely a great value. It was pretty cheap and it has lasted my entire college career. Definitely lasted longer than my laptop, xbox, and about 30 alarm clocks. I use it as an auxiliary screen to extend my desktop and it works flawlessly. The base is super stable and has a pretty small footprint, which is good for dorm-sized desks. 19" is a little small, but it definitely makes up for size with how clear it is.
Summary: This Monitor has impressed me beyond end. First off I have had it for almost 3 years now and until 5 days ago it has worked perfectly. As for the five days ago I had a house fire that melted the top portion of the monitor as well as half way down the side. To my amazement, the monitor is still operational.
Summary: Purchased this monitor about 6 months ago and have been very satisfied with it. The product quality is excellent, the style is sleek and modern, and it is very easy to use. The colors are true, the contrast is sharp and the performance is superb. Couldn't ask for more.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: I purchased this monitor from Best Buy about 6 months ago and I haven't regretted buying it. I brought LG for dependability. I could of gotten a far cheaper one but I know LG has a good name and they stand behind their products.
Pros: Performance, Features/Settings, Quality, Style/Design, easy to use
Summary: It worked ok for a while and then sometimes the whole screen turns to yellow for a several hours for no reason. It does that at least 5 to 6 time a week. This is the worst monitor i ever had and i had 4 monitors before this one and never had this problem. DO NOT BUY THIS MONITOR.
