I am disappointed with product's limiting ability.
7 November 2011
Summary: I bought the LG w2486l after reading reviews. I liked the cosmetic features. I dislike the limited 60Hz. The picture is too dark and it limits my EVGA GTX 580 SC video card. It lacks 120Hz and 3D capability. Other products are cheaper and easily out perform this so-called king of monitors.
Summary: This is my second LG monitor. Both are top quality products. Reliability and performance are second to none. This model is also very stylish and everyone who comes into my office comments on it. I am very pleased with both my LG monitors and would not hesitate to purchase another LG product.
Summary: Satisfying quality/detail, really good clarity and color rendering, monitor model design is what i wanted. A little minus point of this monitor is: buttons not convenient, but you will get used to it soon.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality, forte manager

Summary: I was somewhat skeptical prior to purchasing this particular product but I sure am glad that I did because this has got to be one of the best LED-LCD Monitors out there! I consider it one of the best primarily on the reasons of its design, contrast ratio, 2 HDMI, etc. The only gripe(s) I have with it is its difficult to navigate OSD (on-screen display) and the fact that LG doesn't have this design in a much larger size.
Summary: This is 'physically' 24" diagonally, BUT there is a 1" black border around the 'viewable' area which reduces this to 22" VIEWABLE. What a cheap trick to pull! Don't consider this if you compare 24" monitors. I found it difficult to use the Menu buttons, so attempted to install 'forteManager' from the LG website. Unfortunately, this does NOT work with Windows 7 - more disappointment. Tech support confirmed this. If I had known this, I would not have bought this product.
Summary: I have had my monitor now for 6 months and I have to say my frist review was a WOW , out of the box. Now after using it for over a 6 months period I am still very satisfied with the product. This monitor has had no gliches, It delivers the same bright colors, and screen details as it did when I first started it up over six months ago.
Pros: Performance, Features/Settings, Quality, Style/Design, easy to use, no fading of vibrant colors, forte manger is great tool, backlite really does a superior job with movies
Summary: Cliffnotes at bottom if you're impatient. :-) I had read some iffy reviews of this monitor and was a little reluctant to buy one. However compared to other $300 monitors it just had the most features and was easily the most beautiful of the bunch. I also noticed most of the complaints were coming from professional graphics developers, photographers, etc... people that can tell you the font and size of text from across a room.
