    Realize this is low end IPS panel, not a pro panel

    I was a little skeptical at the sale price that this monitor wouldn't hold up to my expectations but I was pleasantly surprised upon using it for a few days. I want to hit on a few positives that I noticed right away. First, the menu system allows quite a few tweaks such as color temp and Gamma settings. There are also a few presets you can choose or a complete ability to customize the settings as well. I am using the DVI connection and text is very crisp and clear. Off angle viewing is very good as long as you're at eye level. If you stray above or below you can see heavy purple fringing from both sides on any type of dark background. Having said that, the off angles are very good and typical of an e-ips monitor. Colors also "pop" quite well even at low brightness and on standard def videos. I did some light gaming and did not notice any ghosting on my monitor. From reading other reviews, it seems this is hit or miss. The anti-glare coating does not seem to cause any text/graphic distortion toy eyes. For the negatives, as I mentioned above the purple fringing can be annoying and not everyone will be happy with this. The stand is very wobbly but on my solid desk, the movement is minimal. The connections face down on the back and that makes cable routing a bit annoying to me. I prefer the connections face outward although this leaves less room from the wall to the monitor so it's a personal choice for me. Overall if you realize that this is not a high end Dell or HP IPS panel you might be surprised at what you do get for the money. I will be keeping it since I got it on sale. For regular price I would step up to a Dell or HP.

    I purchased this monitor from the Best Buy located around the 3200 block of South Elston in Chicago (near interstate I90/95). I got a good deal as it was on sale for $200. This monitor's color, black and white, and saturation levels were excellent out of the box, but I noticed when blacks are on a purple glare coming from the bottom corners of the monitor (I tried adjusting, but realized it's something to do with the IPS technology). In addition, there is considerable light leak coming from all four corners when blacks are on, more so from the top that I notice. Other than that this monitor is good for the money. I think I would prefer a TN panel vs. IPS panel for movies and games at this price, but since I work in multimedia I need an affordable monitor that can reproduce the colors I get from my Macbook Pro. So, despite the negatives the positives outweigh enough for me to keep this monitor as the colors can not be matched when compared to a TN panel.

    Overall, it's a good monitor, with sharp text and vivid image. It does have leakage as most ips monitors do, but it won't worry you unless you need to work on a black background very often. But I must say the stand is the poorest I've ever seen. If your desk is solid, that's not a problem, though. Otherwise, a solution is to fix the panel or buy another stand to replace this poor one. Anyway, since I find the solution to the poor stand, I'll keep it. A recommendation is to choose other ips series monitors of LG with steady stand like IPS236v or IPS231P if you are afraid of the stand problems. Those monitor most likely have the same panels.

    I bought the monitor to hook up to my PS3, I bought the wire but the screen requires you to plug in a wire into something with a graphic card. Luckily, my laptop worked. Then to use it on my PS3, it would not work no matter what. Returned it. If the person games on PC, this is wonderful! For system-wise, not the kind you need.

    Overall good monitor. The HDMI is nice to have since I have a computer with an HDMI output.
