Bought in 2008! STILL PERFECT

JOSEPH R., Newegg
27 December 2014
  • Summary: Durable! Well worth the money. Still looks great and 2015 is approaching! Would buy an LG again in a second
  • Pros: Wow, I bought this monitor back in 2008, and it has been up on my PC every day since then. NO problems, still looks amazing 7 years later!
  • Cons: None, It was like $375 new at the time, but has lasted 7 years and still has no dead pixels and looks amazing!

LCD Gaming Monster!

John C., Newegg
21 March 2009
  • Summary: Do not hesitate. If you want a HUGE display for gaming and everything else, this is it.
  • Pros: Excellent real estate in the viewing department. Games look great and the adjustable stand is easy to use. Make sure your video card is up to the challenge. I got this at 379.00 on sale, so it was a steal. Good for gaming, movies, internet or any CAD work. Clear picture and stand turns very easy.
  • Cons: Nothing!

WOW!

Tomas B., Newegg
19 March 2009
  • Pros: Bright, flat,huge. It's almost TOO big.
  • Cons: Not all Video cards can handle this monster. Make sure you've got a good system with a good card. Also, the included app (Forte) is a bit hokey and annoying

Stunning picture quality and size

Michael C., Newegg
17 March 2009
  • Summary: The included software is fine, though rather lackluster. However, you'll just want to stick this in 1920x1200 and forget about it. I had to turn down the default brightness to 50%.
  • Pros: Beautiful picture quality, and no dead pixels. The blue sensor for turning the monitor on is a great feature and looks fantastic without being annoying. The hidden USB ports are a nice addition. The USB ports are not powered however, so you'll need the included USB power cable. Installation took ...
  • Cons: The glossy black bezel and base attracts dust like a Swifter, but it does come with a microfibre cloth for cleaning. The included cable is a D-Sub made out to look like a DVI, so that will end up in your "bag of functional, but obsolete parts" that we all seem to accumulate. Get the Link Depot DV...

really like it

Graham B., Newegg
15 March 2009
  • Summary: it was a tossup between this and the samsung 30" that I really wanted... who wouldn't.. but for less than half the price and almost as much space to work with. super happy with it.
  • Pros: Lots of real estate to all sorts... development, spreadsheets, vnc windows, gaming, movies. really enjoying it.
  • Cons: red text doesn't seem quite as nice or like it does on my samsung 226bw. really minor issue.

Truly a bargain... if you wait for it

Albert C., Newegg
9 March 2009
  • Summary: It looks like Newegg fluctuates the price of this model often. I saw it late 2008 at around 350 and then it went back up to 400 (with 30 dollar promotion). It looks like it's back at 480, but I think if you wait for it, you will see it go down again.
  • Pros: *No dead pixels (WHEW! - for many of you, this will be the scariest part of buying a LCD from Newegg). Seems like 0 dead pixels is the "average" for this monitor *Large. Very Large. I went from a 17" cheapo Dell LCD to this. Make sure that you have a video card that can support 1920*1200 resoluti...
  • Cons: It's TN. But it's also under 400 bucks if you're lucky or patient. If you're in the market for mega color accuracy (photo editing, etc.), you should be spending much more anyway.

LG W2600H-PF

Anonymous, Newegg
5 March 2009
  • Summary: Looking at other reviews I just wanted to point something out, the monitor in fact does have a tone when it is turned on. This can be turned off in the menu. Also, the Power LED, if a person thinks it's too bright, can be turned off in the menu.
  • Pros: This is a huge monitor that takes a little bit of getting used to. The picture quality is great, and once it's calibrated using a calibration puck, it's even better. There are also 4 USB ports on the monitor, 2 in the back and 2 on the left side. All of the buttons are touch sensitive (not your t...
  • Cons: It's only a great deal when on sale. Usually the price is a bit high.

TN / S-IPS Answer

Anonymous, Newegg
4 March 2009
  • Summary: Try searching for model # LG W2600HP-BF
  • Pros: This is a TN panel....the S-IPS has a different model number, costs more, and from what I've read...is not available in the US. Everywhere I've looked for one seems to be overseas or discontinued.
  • Cons: none

Awesome!

Peter L., Newegg
3 March 2009
  • Summary: The monitor is capable of 1920x1200 at 60hz and capable of 75hz at lower resolution settings. I would like to see 75hz at 1920x1200. I get some image tearing during some fast paced games but I probably just need to upgrade from XP and my Nvidia 7950GT. Not bad, but noticeable at times.
  • Pros: Amazing value! Was on special for a great deal! Huge, upgraded from a 19inch LCD square monitor Brilliant colors when properly adjusted Good contrast for price to size ratio Not one dead pixel Pretty. Looks great with no webcam/integrated speakers, or other junk you don't need Height adjustment a...
  • Cons: Did not come with HDMI cable, had to purchase one separately.

Great!

Anonymous, Newegg
3 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought this mainly because of the price but also because LG's reputation. Their products have always been really well built and is the same here. This is an excellent buy for the money. Even after the sale, I think its worth 500.
  • Pros: Very good buy for the price (under 400). Vivid colors, fast response time, good enough for high end gaming and videos. True HD resolution (1920 x 1080) is perfect for Blu-ray/HD-DVD, looks excellent. Touch sensor buttons are really cool. Stand comes with height and tilt adjustments so need to buy...
  • Cons: Compared to another brand monitor, the color is not as vivid but stand alone you wont be able to tell the difference. Power button beeps an annoying tune when powering on/off, but that would be my opinion as someone else might like it :) Pretty heavy, but what do you expect from a 24+ inch monito...
