Summary: I have used this for about four years now and have fond it to be very good. A 27" 1080 p screen for desk use is big, sometime a little too big, due to the lower PPI. The main reason this is a good fit is for watching movies from 5-8 feet, for which it is perfect.
Summary: I purchased this monitor this month (jun-2010). For the value, the monitor is great. It looks great and I love the feature that it has for "Auto" bright. I have my macbook pro connected via hdmi (with adapter) , my macpro with DVI and my acer aspire (mini) running ubuntu with vga. It works great. The only problems that I have are: 1) The source change it's slow. I have to wait until it reads the next one before changing it again.
Summary: I am using Windows 7, 64 bit system with this monitor. The information regarding the correct setup for Forte Manager is as follows: 1. HDMI and DVI cannot both be plugged into this monitor at the same time. 2. Use DVI shielded cables (quality) ones for your hookup. Get rid of the VGA cables it comes with altogether. 3. Use of the DVI cables will allow Forte Manager to work best. 4. For Forte Manager settings, Use compatibility for Vista Service Pack 2. 5.
Summary: wow!This monitor puts all my previous monitors to shame, a 22",24" I had. Well my last monitor was my first monitor with a HDMI port for full 1080p hook up but that monitor,jeez... bad color,angles so bad the screen looked poor, if I leaned back in my chair sat on bed, if i wasn't looking straight at it forget about it,it was dark!, my 1st monitor jus was really poor quality compared to this LG.
Summary: Once calibrated, the picture is very good. I can't get the forteManager software to work consistently, though. Most of the time, the "Display" tab is grayed out. And currently, the "Check Update" button takes you to a broken link. I imagine there are workarounds to be done, but that should not be necessary in a consumer device. It should just work.
Summary: I am very please with the monitor. Big and bright. Easy to hook up, with the correct cables (bought seperately). Only a single problem. Never did figure out how to work the internal monitor color adjustment controls. The user manual was poorly written for this action, or worse misleading, for the adjustment steps. I never got a response back from LG customer service, but I was able to adjust the color to 93% of my satisfaction criteria via my computer display controls..
Summary: I received this monitor from my son at Christmas and I have enjoyed every minute of use. It is easy to use and gives a very clear picture. I am a user of many photos and video programs and I enjoy watching these shows on such a large monitor. My friends were impressed with it.
Pros: Quality, Features/Settings, easy to use, Performance, Style/Design
Summary: Its bright (I love the auto-bright adjustment), huge, and fast. I play WoW and it looks amazing. At 400nits, 27" with an HDMI input (I use for my flip camcorder), and 16:9 its an excellent value at $389 from Fry's Electronics 12-11-09. The downside is it screen tears with some 2D games if the VSYNC option isn't enabled in the game.
