Mostly very happy -a keeper, indeed
I am very pleased with my new Envy 27: it looks and sounds great. I am upgrading from a 19" 720 display in a 2006 HP Touchsmart. I paid $408, which was $9 more than HP was charging on the day I checked last month -the Amazon account convenience and delivery-reliability was worth it. I am using a display port-to-display port connection and I didn't detect any difference when I tried a VGA connection using a DVI-I to VGA adaptor which came with my computer.
Very stylish looks, big display, glossy front
Checking the colour gamut coverage, sRGB reached 97%, Adobe RGB at 76% and NTSC at a lowly 71%. Brightness consistency was mostly satisfactory except for the right side which was much brighter - up to 16.3% difference at 100% brightness setting. Checking the screen on pure black there was clear light leak on that side too. Colour consistency across the display was fairly even, apart from the bottom centre third where it varied by Delta-E 4.4 at 100% Brightness.
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.
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.
Aside from having a slim cabinet, the ASUS ML248H doesnâ??t have too much to recommend it. The stand looks nice, but it didnâ??t work well at all in my desk environment and was barely adjustable. The TN panel loses contrast and color at the edges with normal viewing angles, and it has big backlight uniformity issues that prevent me from recommending it for any sort of print or photo use.
