    Can use these for photo editing

    Posted
    EricB

    I didn't know it would be so difficult to buy a pair of monitors for my wife's new photo-editing computer. I overlooked the two LG IPS monitors that we use on our video editing machine because they did such a good job. That is, no complaints from her. I made the mistake of buying some ViewSonics from the large jungle store. Those monitors said they had vivid colors, but they lied. Of course, the LGs we have are five years old and no longer made. So I had to hunt around to find a replacement. Luckily Best Buy carried these, and they were on sale when we bought them. So maybe not fair to compare apples to oranges since these are normally $200 and the other ones were much cheaper. But with the sale price and being LG, it was a no-brainer. What's funny is that once I built the computer, my wife complained immediately about the lack of 'pop' in any of her images. She tried all sorts of color correction, but it was futile because the ViewSonics were so far off. The red/maroon on their image couldn't even be accurately reproduced. Once I hooked one of these up and compared side to side, it was easy to see that these would need no adjustment. So the others are going back. I'm glad Best Buy had these and being on sale was a plus. I'm using these with HDMI connection on Cable Matters Gold Plated high speed cables with a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 TI 4GB video card.

    Great Monitor for console gaming (PS4 PRO)

    I had been searching around for a gaming monitor to use for FPS mainly on my PS4 Pro. I wanted to get a 4K HDR monitor to get the most out what the console offers, but with the pro hardly ever reaching true 4K, and having already a 4K TV with HDR, I chose to get a 1080p monitor. This monitor is more than enough for a Xbox One/PS4 since these consoles don't go over 60FPS, though the Xbox One X does support freesync and this monitor does have freesync. The colors are very vivid (thanks to IPS display) and the monitor is very bright. Does need to be configured when you get it out of the box to get the most out of what the monitor is capable of, but I am very satisfied with this monitor. The PS4 pro does have a supersampling mode now to try and give you the most out of 1080p and 2k resolution displays and so far I do not miss playing on my 4K television. **Disclaimer, this monitor can not be adjusted much other than tilting and the stand is somewhat wobbly. The footprint of the monitor is not big, so therefore does not take up much desk space. Cannot complain for the current price I purchased of $109.99, this monitor is a steal.

    If you have an AMD Radeon video card, then this monitor can be configured to come pretty close to the performance of a 120Hz monitor and you can save about a hundred bucks. Absolute intense high action gaming will still go better at the higher refresh rate, and a hard-core gamer will probably spot the difference sooner or later. For the rest of us that are replacing an older monitor or one that got smacked in the middle of an intense "I got PWNED" moment during a game, this will work just fine. Again, if you are super hard-core about the gaming, spend more for the higher refresh rate. Light gaming or more contemplative gaming (means 'slower') will find that this monitor provides nice colors and a good field of view. My in-house gaming expert (son) actually preferred this monitor to a larger monitor - he said the colors were better and the game play was smoother to his eyes. Honestly when buying a monitor you need to get down to the store and stand in front of it. Best Buy makes this pretty easy with both their price-matching and return policies.

    Fantastic monitor for the price

    I'm building myself a nerd station... ps4, tv, pc all with multiple monitors... basically a place to escape to when I'm up late since my current house can't accommodate a mancave... anyways, saw this monitor in store, did more research, saw lots of people like this monitor even for gaming (mind you I'm just a ps4 gamer, not pc). Thought for $120 it cant be that bad. I've been pleasantly surprised. LG makes great TVs and that's why I wanted to give them a shot. Played ps4 for a while and switched it over to the Purdue basketball game on my new fire stick and it looked good as well. There's no internal speakers, which I didnt care about, planned on using wireless gaming headphones and some sort of basic computer speaker for the fire stick. As long as you're not an avid pc gamer and just a console based gamer, I would recommend this 10 out of 10 times. There's several different setting to tweak with to get the brightness and color how you like it (including gaming modes). I like it so much I ordered a 2nd one.

    Great Monitors, Even Better if You Get it on Sale

    I purchased 2 of these monitors for my setup. $129.99 each. Since then, I've seen it fluctuate between $179.99 and now back to $129.99. They are 75hz monitors, but you have to enable it in the settings menu (it's called FreeSync I believe). I was originally going to purchase a 144hz monitor for gaming, but figured a dual monitor setup would be more useful. It looks very crisp and brightness is decent. I have a bit of sun shining into my room during the early mornings, so I occasionally see some glare; no big deal. There are no onboard speakers, but you can buy a pair of $30 Logitech speakers and they'll sound just fine. You have the usual settings to change color temperature, brightness, contrast, etc with the single button (directional push to indicate/confirm selection). I do wish I could instantly turn off the monitor by a single click on the button, but you have to hold it for a couple of seconds to turn the monitor off. Personally would have preferred the two functions to be reversed. For $130, I think I got a great deal; 24" monitor with 75hz at 1080p.

    I needed a monitor to replace an aging, and dimming Apple Cinema Display 23". That monitor was $1299 back in the day. I work from home time to time and hated lugging the Apple monitor from the garage into the house whenever I needed it. It weighs a ton and has enough cables to strangle every sea animal in the ocean. So I figure it was time for an update. Amazing what you can get these days for almost 10% of what monitors cost 15 years ago! For $120 (reg. $199) I choose this one. LG offers amazing color, 1080P resolution, and HDMI - the latter offering the ability to hot swap between my laptop or my XBOX. The IPS screen has a fast refresh rate and great viewing angles too boot! I work as a Creative Director, so I am fairly finicky about the screens I look at for work. So this monitor for home (or work) does the job very nicely. Thanks Best Buy!

    Great Gaming Monitor

    I bought this monitor to use for console gaming. The monitor I received had zero back light bleed or glow due to the panel being led edge lit. This was smart on LG’s part. Because the panel is so thin, you don’t have as many issues as you would with a typical IPS panel. The color is fantastic and tests well over the 99% RGB as stated by LG. Freesync works great on Xbox one S and X. For those stuck on response times, the 5ms response time compared to my 1ms TN gaming monitor is not noticeable. I think it comes down to consoles doing a max of 60fps. I would recommend the color reproduction of this panel over the response times of a TN panel any day. The 1 ms motion blur works great but I felt it is not needed and can’t be utilized if you’re using Freesync. All in all, a good solid monitor for the money. I got it on sale for $129. If you catch it on sale, pull the trigger and enjoy this monitor. Thanks!

    I purchased this monitor as an extended monitor for my LENOVO Yoga 900. I do not regret it. The connection is seamless for the most although some times the monitor backs out but I think that’s a cable issue and not the monitor. I am still trying to figure it out. *** if someone is having this issue please share*** The monitor looks good, picture is perfect, it is super light, barely uses power when off and it goes into standby mode when the computer goes to sleep. I have had this monitor for about 6 months now or more and I cannot tell you what a great investment this was and for the price I paid when it was in sale. This is a great monitor for people like me who do not need a huge 30”+ extended monitor for their laptops and only does work related things on the computer or homework for college. Of you are a gamer and like a large screen, this may not be your match but for people like me, this does the trick for the right price.

    Cheap Gaming Monitor

    Posted
    Jonny

    This is a great "gaming" monitor for the price. AMD FreeSync works on HDMI, although you will need a AMD Radeon video card to run it. You will need some time to work out all the kinks with this monitor visa vi FreeSync Set Up but still worth it. As a side note, there is a small selection of on screen crosshairs that can be set while navigating the menus on the monitor. Although most ads say it can handle 75Hz, I would recommend keeping this at 60Hz. When running CSGO with all High Settings, I set the max FPS to 75 and had a weird line running across the screen while running FreeSync. Also, note that if you can run any game at 75Hz or more, you will still see SOME screen tearing, even when running FreeSync, though it's not as bad without FreeSync enabled.

    This is my second LG 24" monitor for my desktop computer and I'm considering buying two more for my work laptop setup. The color is amazing and the refresh rate is perfect for gaming or watching videos, with no ghosting effect at all. Text is very crisp, which was a must for me, as I do a lot of technical writing. I also really like the near instant on it provides... press the power button, and the display turns on within 1-2 seconds. Other monitors I've had take 5-10 seconds to turn on. Overall, I'd definitely buy one or two more of these monitors and recommend it to anyone that wants crisp, clear text, near-perfect colors, and no ghosting when playing video games and videos.

    Doesn't have slots for VESA stand

    This is a decent monitor but has few drawbacks 1. No in-built Speakers. It only has a 3.5 mm jack to connect earphones or powered speaker. 2. No slots for connecting. or hooking this up to VESA monitor stand. I had to return this monitor. 3. Single button for power, volume and menu options. I didn't like this simplification. 4. Height of this monitor can't be adjusted. It sits on the stand provided and stays at that height forever. 5. No VGA cable is provided with this monitor but and HDMI cable was provided. The good thing about this monitor is it has 2 HDMI slots and 1 VGA slot. So connectivity is never an issue. I used this monitor to extend the screen of my laptop but lack of VESA mount slots forced me to return this.

    This sleek, high quality monitor was well worth both the price and the 40-minute each way drive I had to make to pick it out because they only had it in Menominee Falls and not Brookfield. It was even worth the hour the salesman spent trying to upsell me when I came in knowing EXACTLY what I wanted, especially since by the time I left he finally looked at the specs and realized that for the price I was getting an even better monitor with a better refresh rate than the ~$270 one he was trying to sell me. Ha. Beautiful picture and lovely quality. Plenty of connection options. No speakers, but since monitor speakers often suck is rather not pay for them to be part of the design.

    I had these at a previous office. Started my own business and needed new hardware. Really needed new everything. These were on sale for $129.99 at time of purchase (normally $200.) I jumped at the opportunity to snag two of these. As soon as they are on sale again I’ll probably purchase a third one. However I will say these are worth every penny of their retail price. I have an LG OLED tv as well. LG is vastly far ahead of every other brand when it comes to displays. Period. From a TV to a monitor you can be sure of three things; 1. Excellent long term reliability 2. Amazing picture quality/color/motion. 3 great customer service if ever needed. (In my case it was just to ask a question, very friendly and helpful support staff.)

    This is a good quality decently sized budget monitor for a home theater or budget gaming setup. It has a good freesync range of 40-75 which is above average for this price range. Color accuracy is far superior to a TN panel but don't expect perfection in this price range. Only real cons is first that the power cable is a bit short and needed an extension. The second is it is advertised as having tilt though I could not get it to move applying what I felt was a safe amount of pressure for fear of damaging it. These are not major issues but worth mentioning. Overall satisfied though as it is more than I expected for the price.

    Vibrant colors, Good picture but a bit of IPS glow

    I bought this monitor to play PS4 games and Switch games. I am very impressed with the picture quality. Games like Nier Automata, Street Fighter 5 and Final Fantasy 15 look really good on it. However being an IPS monitor it does have a little bit of IPS glow during dark scenes. For me on this particular monitor it has IPS glow in the right hand corner and the right side. However in bright scenes i don't notice it, but Games like Little Nightmares during the dark scenes it is very visible and can be pretty distracting . So just a heads up for anyone purchasing this monitor. Other than that i am very happy with this monitor, Great quality for the sale price of $109 instead of paying the full $200.

    Best PC Monitor I've Ever Owned

    I remember when such a monitor would cost over $1200 just 10 years ago. I love that I can view it at any angle with the LED IPS feature. Pros: Light, Thin & Amazing Performance. AMD FreeSync Technology Works Perfectly With My AMD CyberPowerPC Ultra Gaming Desktop. Cons: Non-Adjustable Height or Angle. Can't Pivot. Can't Mount Onto Wall(As Far As I Know). Final Thoughts: This Is An Awesome 1080p Monitor. No Need For a 4k PC Monitor just yet(since they cost $500 & up for a descent brand). I Highly Recommend!

    I bought it during the Christmas season. The price was around $100. IPS panel, the color looks so great. I didn’t need to do any adjustment. I play PUBG, this monitor has 75hz, not ideally, but i think this is the best you can get for this price. Also it has free sync tech, good for people with AMD graphic card. For Nvidia user, this monitor doesn’t have Disport Port, so you can’t utilize the freesync transfer to g-sync thing done by Nvidia around Jan,2019. If you want G-sync monitor, they are like at least $100 more. Buy this one, you will enjoy it as much as i do.

    I don't know why this is so highly rated. I'm a pretty hardcore gamer and this monitor fell very short. It's so choppy. I've tried all the settings, even custom settings and was not able to find a smooth setting. I'm very unhappy with LG. I bought this on a Christmas sale and sadly I have to return it and miss out on the discount because this was unacceptable for gaming. If you're a hardcore gamer like me and spend hours gaming DO NOT buy this monitor. After 20 min of use your eyes will be strained. I'm very disappointed with this and the LG brand and will have to consider LG as a untrustworthy brand. Very disappointing

    My sons best friend needed a new monitor for his ps4. We did some research and spoke with a very knowledgeable employee at our local Best Buy. He helped us rule out the ones we didnt want by listening to what it was going to be used for. It was down to 3. We chose this particular monitor because of the excellent colors and its a perfect gaming screen. Low energy use, great size and truly remarkable color and the price was right. His friend is thrilled with it and im proud of my son for thinking of others. Paying it forward big and small daily. Highly recommend this product!

    I was in the market for a dual monitor set up for my home office, mostly internet browsing, word processing, and email. I picked up two of these for a very reasonable price and are exactly what I was looking for. The dual hdmi ports is something at the time I didn't realize, but turned out to be, probably the best feature. I can have my work laptop and my home desktop hooked up at the same time and switch back and forth if I need to. Pretty cool feature. Images and text look great as well. I love these monitors.
