Good for a TN panel!

Travis S., Newegg
19 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this from a popular Canadian supplier. I paid about the same price as listed here which included absurd shipping to the US (think double normal shipping costs), as well as the cost of a ZERO dead pixel policy.
  • Pros: Good range of movements such as tilt, swivel, height, and even pivot (ie. portrait); Solid base stand; Matte finish helps with window glare; Good colors and deep blacks for a TN; VERY LOW input lag, which is far more important than response time for FPS; The power on LED can be disabled through t...
  • Cons: Uses 1920x1080 instead of 1920x1200; Hit or miss on dead pixels; Viewing angle, but it is a TN; Colors and brightness need to be slightly tuned out of the box; The power on LED is blue (see pros); OSD can be a pain to navigate at first use.

It's all alright...

Brad O., Newegg
30 August 2011
  • Summary: It would be nice if the stand could be a little tighter and not tilt so easy because it's really annoying when the whole screen is not level and tilted to one side.
  • Pros: Nice contrast and awesome response time. Has HDMI and DVI so I use this for a computer monitor and PS3 screen. Nice clean simple design. It's a decent every day use monitor for a reasonable price.
  • Cons: A lot of dead pixels (unfortunately one less than needed to send it back), and the stand for the monitor is pretty horrible when using it in the horizontal position. It never stays level and always leans to one side.

Dead pixels

Sam B., Newegg
23 June 2011
  • Summary: I got three of these to replace my three year old KDS monitor which was destroyed with everything else in a tornado, so right now I do not have enough room to put up all three where I am currently living, so I have only used the one monitor so far.
  • Pros: It is an OK monitor for your basic general use.
  • Cons: The backlighting and color fading across the screen is bad for a mid-sized monitor. While the colors are nice and vibrant, there is something wrong about them that I cannot quite place yet. My biggest pet-peeve with this monitor is within the first week of ownership a dead pixel appeared at the t...

Very good quality/price ratio.

Daniel G., Amazon
30 September 2010
  • Summary: Looks fine. Power indicator can be turned off (nice). Nice ACM (auto brightness) mode. There can appear some noise in special cases (for example using PuTTY) Angles could be little bit better.

VERY pleased with this monitor

Gonnzo, Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: I think LG makes excellent products and this monitor is no exception. Added this to a Dell 24" for dual-display and the LG held it's own against the superior (and much higher priced) Dell.

Big Bang for Buck! & VESA 100 Compatible.

T. Real, Amazon
29 August 2010
  • Summary: Short story: Glare free surface, excellent color reproduction, HD, fair price, and satisfaction. My Huey corrected nicely for photo editing. And, VESA compatible! Surprising how difficult it is to determine that capability from web descriptions.

One of the best 24 inch LED monitors out there

krakophyst, Dooyoo
4 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I was sick of my small 19 inch 4:3 screen, I wanted something bigger, at least 23 inch. The monitors for sale that were 24 inch really spoke to me, it seemed the perfect size and it wasn't much more expensive than a 23 inch screen.
  • Pros: Reliability

Guter Allround Monitor

partymild, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: Ich habe den Monitor seit nun bereits gut 2 Jahren und bin immer noch zufrieden. Ursprünglich war er für meine Playstation 3 gedacht, da ich noch keinen HDTV hatte und das Spielen auf einem alten TV wenig Spaß macht. Das Anschließen über HDMI ist unkompliziert und die PS3 erkennt den Monitor sofort.

Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis ist sehr ausgewogen.

Rednox, Amazon
5 May 2011
  • Summary: Ich habe mir gleich zwei dieser Geräte geholt die als Dual-View an einem PC in der Full-HD Auflösung arbeiten (Im Windoof-Modus wie auch in Spielen etc.). Standfest sind die Geräte in jeder hinsicht und auch einfach zu montieren.
