Summary: I've had this display for a couple of days, and so far I'm very satisfied. There isn't much I can say that hasn't been posted already, so I'm just going to leave my personal thoughts: PROS: - Blacks are very rich, which is great for someone like me who edits video and watches DVDs on my computer - Elegant design, nice aesthetics, and pretty straight-forward on screen menu system - Near HD video quality.
Summary: This is my 1st experience owning a LCD screen other then a cell phone. I prefer Plasma however plasma screens aren't made smaller then 42". The contrast and color isn't as washed out as I had thought it would be. Gaming looks good play "WoW" often, its light and easy to move and set up. For it's size and quality I couldn't find any better in this price range (B Buy had a sale for $250 in Sept 08). The black finish makes the room appear more sophisticated and clean.
Excellent picture quality though disappointed in the blacks

Summary: For PC use, this is practically usable out of the box. Using it for an Xbox 360 on the other hand requires a bit of tweaking. However, the picture quality is great. I had a 42" LG LCD 720p tv before and the color was astounding, the blacks were fairly good as well when calibrated accordingly. The 22" monitor has even better picture color...except for blacks. The high contrast ratio washes out the blacks.
Excerpt: I use this monitor at work as my primary display. I haven't had any problems with it for the last 18 months and it is a great monitor for work purposes but obviously I haven't really tested the resolution of the monitor and how it performs with gaming for example but for general usage I cannot really fault this monitor.
Excerpt: I purchased this TFT monitor in December 2008 as an upgrade from a 19" widescreen. My reason for buying this monitor at the time, it is made by LG. While the range of LCD televisions and plasmas from LG may not quite up to scratch, having used many LG monitors, they are reliable. As well as VGA an essential DVI input is included for a superior image. Most of the cheap monitors available tend to be VGA only.
