Summary: I actually love this monitor. I use it for everything from gaming to photo editing. It has great color, great resolution, and just looks crisp and smooth. I upgraded from a 16" Dell LCD to this and it's like going from an old tube TV to an HDTV. It may only be 19" but for some reason it looks bigger. I actually couldn't believe it was only 19" so I measured it and it was actually 19.5". The only thing I don't like about it is that the mount isn't a standard VESA mount.
Summary: This is a great monitor for use with a desktop or smaller laptop computer. Good color reproduction and solid reliability. I own 3 of these. If you are looking to mount these in a multiple screen application look for a different monitor as these are not VESA 75/100 compliant and will not fit most available mounting brackets.
Summary: Purchased this monitor a year ago. Worked great. Love the monitor until it decided to just not turn on one day after having it on the night before. Contacted LG as the product is still under warranty. They offered to just send a brand new one once they receive this one or I could have a new one sent with the cash spotted on a credit card and then they refund the credit card. We chose to wait and let them send a new one once they have received the old.
Worth spending the money over what you get with a Dell

Summary: I love this monitor. I chose to splurge and not get the cheap bundle monitor that I could have got with my computer from Dell. It is like working with a television. The colors are crisp and nice and I am able to work for hours in front of the monitor and then switch to watch movies. Definitely a good buy.
Summary: Very nice monitor with excellent bright screen. Arrived with no bad pixels. No complaints considering the price so it was a very good buy. I gave this to my son and decided that I actually needed a monitor that had HDMI and a slightly larger screen so I upgraded to an HD monitor. This is a great axillary monitor however and I do not hesitate recommending it.
Summary: I bought this monitor less than a year ago to replace a CRT that finally crapped out after 8 years of use. It's a great monitor as noted by other reviewers. I'm in the process of upgrading form WinXP to Win7(64 bit). When I went looking for new drivers, I found that the last driver file/software (forteManager) issued by LG was over a year ago.
Summary: I purchased this item as a replacement for a 19" 1280x1024 monitor which was twice as expensive and developed a malfunction in its power switch. I ordered this item from [...] via the amazon.com website. Amazon listed the price from Tiger and Amazon simultaneously which made it easy to determine the slightly better price from Tiger. The item arrived within three days of placing the order in pristine condition. The packaging was well designed and easy to unpack.
Excerpt: This LG Monitor is excellent quality. At 10,000:1 digital Fine Contrast And unbelievable clarity its no wonder why LG is making a break through in the market. The entire monitor is wrapped in a shiny silver and black casing that really proves to be a major product attraction. I have had this monitor for 5 months so far and not one single problem had occurred with it . It puts off minimal heat and never has image distortion.
