Summary: It is amazing to me that such an amazing monitor left off the standard feature almost all monitors have, VESA mounts. So now I have two amazing monitors that need to rest on a desk. It might seem minor but it is such an amazing oversight I had to mentioned it. Beyond that the base for the unit isn't very sturdy and becomes lose easily. The other features of this monitor are great, but the lack of a mount kills it for me.
Summary: I bought a LG194WT-SF 19 (September 2007) and it died in March 2010. However, I got this W2286 L sent to me (warranty was okay) in end of April. + I am pleased with it and its performance. Especially when playing games (e.g. the Call of Duty collection, EA/Dice Battlefield games, Codemasters racing games and any "rapid" game you can play. (Okay, my computer/GPU are quick). Despite that, the screen really keeps up with the games.

Summary: I purchased this monitor for one purpose: Run 2D fighting tournaments. The official monitor they use for EVO (A gaming convention in Las Vegas) is the ASUS VH236H 23 Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black . I tried to match the specs as best I could, while taking advantage of the LED aspect. Cons: -No built in speakers. -No external volume button. You have to go through a few menus to just adjust the volume.
Summary: This LED monitor is good for those people who like matte displays (I like glossy displays since they are brighter and crisper). I would rate it as okey monitor - I wasn't that excited like some other users. Just a good LED monitor for the money.

Summary: This monitor is very nice. The color is vibrant and the picture is sharp. I am still learning the different abilities/functions available. The only downside is the ease of use of the 'Forte Manager' to set up and access the abilities/functions of this item. have had prob with monitor not going into sleep mode, but going into sleep mode when I am watching videos. I also recieve 'display' error messages every now and then from windows.
Summary: This is an excellent monitor with vibrant colors and bright display. It also has a sturdy base. I am using it in a dual monitor setup and i have not been able to calibrate the colors to match the other older, and not LED backlit LCD. In fact the older display matches photo printouts better than the 2286L. I have tried to calibrate the 2286L to closer match the other LCD display but photos do not look right no matter what settings I tweak.
Pros: Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
