Practical stand, connections and hardware features
On the whole, LG has done an excellent job with the 27" Flatron 27EA83 "ColorPrime" monitor. It's stylish, practical and ensures first-rate colour fidelity. It missed out on a five-star review for its relatively low contrast and a response time that's not fast enough for gamers.
This is a solid easy to setup monitor. It connects to the HDMI port on my laptop and a separate USB connection supports the touch screen features. It comes with a DVD which has the drivers and manual. Do not lose the DVD! I misplaced mine and called LG support who told me to get the driver from Microsoft! This monitor really shines when you use the driver on the DVD rather than the plug and play driver in Windows, and even more so if you take the time to calibrate the colors.
3D works great. Watched a couple of movies (Spider-man and Brave), and the picture was perfect. I know people will tell you that the resolution is halved in passive 3D TVs, but if you go to LG's website that say it's not true. All I can say for certain is that there doesn't appear to be any degradation of the video as far as I can tell. Looks great!
Intuitive OSD with real buttons
LG's IPS235 carries the cachet of true-to-life IPS color without the cash outlay of spendier competitors. While it's not the brightest monitor in this price range, its broad color spectrum and surprisingly sound out-of-the-box calibration make it a good fit for anyone concerned with viewing images as they're supposed to appear. The rather dull bezel and stand can be overlooked for the price tag, though we do wish the IPS235 did a better job displaying near-black.
Good price-performance ratio
The greatest weakness of the LG IPS235V is its stand and the meagre ergonomic functions associated with it. Use of the OSD is also not truly convenient, which is partly the fault of the stand. Since the model has VESA 100 screw holes, however, it is relatively easy to attach an alternative mount, whether this be a stand or a monitor arm. The illumination was also not ideal, but this is subject to a certain degree of variation within a series.
A solid monitor, with great upsides, and some downsides as well
This monitor is great. I feel like I am staring into another universe when using it. Doesn't feel like I am looking at a screen.
It looks nice, especially when turned off (because the bezel looks so thin... its not actually that thin).
The color is great. Pictures I have seen for years all of a sudden look better, Like I am seeing them for the first time (and my last monitor wasnt even bad... it just wasn't IPS i guess)
It is nice and thin as well.
Great but...one minor flaw
The monitor is great. I upgraded from a 2006 Dell SP2009W. So needless to say taking the contrast ratio from 5,000:1 into the millions is a huge step. At first I was disappointed, but with some setting tinkering it came to life. There is apsolutely no glare and I have 4 LARGE windows to my back so constant light. My ONLY complaint, is the stand is just awful. Will it hold the monitor, yes. It is not adjustable at all and is completely made of plastic including the arm.
Works perfect for my needs
I have a monitor tree for four monitors. Two of my older monitors finally gave up the ghost. I had 1 other monitor that is very old and still needed one more. So far I've been happy with LG products that I've bought so I decided to go LG again. It's smaller than the one it replaced but once have the money I will buy the size I need for the tree position and move it up to replace a smaller monitor above it that is the oldest of all.
Monitor has vivid color reproduction
With multiple superior options in panel technology, TN panels will eventually be phased out. For the time being though, they are hanging on and putting up a fight. The LG E2442V-BN is one of the better TN monitors, but it does not offer enough to justify paying the same price as equally sized monitors with better panel technology. With IPS technology, this monitor would be a far greater contender.
Signature LED thin-ness with a piano-black, thin bezel
The LG E2281VR-BN is a high-definition computer monitor designed for realistic picture rendering. The 22 inch screen works in a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, and has a native resolution of 1920x1080 which enables full 1080p high definition content to be rendered without any distortion or blurred pixels.
