Disappointing

Fadi Y., Newegg
19 February 2013
  • Summary: Despite having cared for and maintained this monitor for 3 years, both HDMI ports stopped working just outside of the warranty period. I have always utilized only one HDMI port, now both HDMI ports display a black screen (no BIOS/OS display) when utilized.
  • Pros: Rich colors Featured display settings
  • Cons: Failed exactly outside of warranty

  • Summary: It has been a fantastic and reliable long term monitor for my gaming uses, but as noted in the cons, the software is borderline unusable. I was able to perfect the color balance using the nVidea graphics card software instead. Egg loss there.
  • Pros: Bright Clear Fast response time Nice form Good build quality Good price
  • Cons: Terrible software Harder to calibrate than it should be

Best monitor I've ever bought

Anonymous, Newegg
24 December 2010
  • Pros: I don't know what to say except I love this monitor. The colors are beautiful compared to my older monitor and I use this also for my PS3 and Xbox360.
  • Cons: The glossy look attracts dust like crazy and the touch buttons are annoying. Not much room to adjust the screen

calibration is needed

Soon K., Newegg
22 November 2010
  • Summary: May have to run Fortemanager on compatibility mode for it to work under Windows 7. Also you may have to have the monitor connected using DVI (I had mine on HDMI and didn't work, DVI worked).
  • Pros: Beautifully designed monitor with sleek touch menus. It is not that hard to navigate around the menus as people make it out to be. Monitor is very thin.
  • Cons: I've spent a few good hours trying to get the colors to look right. But I had to resort to a third party calibration software to the settings that I liked. If you can't get one use the settings from your videocard (like CCC with ATI cards).

  • Summary: for the price i paid i cant complain all that much.. Its hardly any bigger than my old samsung syncmaster 226w though.. I should have just bought a 40 " lcd led tv instead.. I thought 24 inches would make me happy , but it hasnt
  • Pros: Looks sweet , led , no bad pixels , super thing and light weight , picture is vibrant. Touch screen buttons are cool " its as hard to get used to them as it is using buttons " GOT IT FOR 199.00 ON SALE OVER THE WEEKEND !!!!
  • Cons: color is soooooooooo off when out of box , i have messed with the settings for about 20 mins but its still off.. WHERE IS MY GOSH DARN RED LIGHT @ MY EAGLE EYE? ? I thought this monitor had a red light on the power button and on the stand... Doesnt match my haf 932 black edition case as well now....

Good screen. Bad software.

Eddie S., Newegg
17 November 2010
  • Summary: LG Should take a room and light it like a normal cubical office setup. The brightness on the screen and the settings would only be good if your backed up to a window with the sun blaring in to where you have to wear sunblock.
  • Pros: Looks nice, very thin.
  • Cons: Menus are poorly setup. Comes with the brightness at 100%. You gotta turn it down to like 30% to be useable in my room. Im sure some brighter rooms would be around 50%.

8 Hours with this monitor.

Michael C., Newegg
17 November 2010
  • Summary: I got this monitor for a steal price over the weekend. I actually had my eye on this monitor for 6+ months , now once I have it i feel it was lacking. If i wouldn't have bought this on a super sale than I probably would have been disappointed.
  • Pros: - Very thing design. Surprisingly lite weight, semi flashy looks. - Touch buttons are a plus in my book. -Colors are very vibrant . - Picture is actually very nice quality. Even in tight areas with high detail it looks very nice.
  • Cons: - Out of the box it is WAY too cool , everything has a bad blue tint. You actually get used to it while playing but once you look at your lcd tv , plasma or another pc monitor for 10 seconds and walk back, you automatically can tell the difference. Easy enough to work out most of the blue tint , ...
