It's IPS... of course it is! ;) Well, maybe not for fast paced gaming... but no VA or IPS panel will ever be better than TN at response times.

Looks like it's a newly listed product by ebuyer, they will claim it's mispriced and cancel any purchase.

Would be fantastic if someone who has seen one in real life could give an oppinion! Even its not great by IPS standards, its still an IPS at £150. Redicuolously Hot.

As the links from that site show, this is available for only £4 more elsewhere..so I don't think it's a misprice.
The description does state it has HDMI, but that review and the specifications say otherwise, so I think that is a mistake...
"With a ghosting time of 25 ms, it's totally unsuitable for gaming. It's more comfortable with office work and any other tasks that don't include fast-moving objects." kills it for me :(

Well according to various forums, this has the same screen as the v236 which has the same screen as the dell u2311h.

Someone comments that the LED are white so offer less than the dell because you want rgb for colour IPS.
#12
hmm im tempted to replace my 23" dell monitor with this or shall i wait and get a 24" IPS monitor :S
#13
if only it had an HDMI input....
#14
Why do you need HDMI when it has DVI with HDCP? I got a cable with HDMI on one end and DVI on the other for my Sky box.

Can't find this model on the LG site!

RGBLED backlighting isn't available on desktop LCDs for less than about £500 and then you're looking at high-end NEC panels. So at this price, £154 for an IPS panel is excellent.

The quality of the panel is much more important than the backlit choice so a white-LED IPS panel will still be miles ahead of a white-LED cheap-TN panel.
#17
Great price. I'd love to see an in depth review.

Re led backlight. You'll see benefits in a thinner chassis, lower power consumption and more evenly lit image as opposed to a standard screen, but this is at the trade off is a much colder picture, with whites having a blue tinge.
#18
SO is this better than the u2311h? i mean just by spec to spec, not taking price into consideration. I've been thinking about getting a monitor for about a month now. Everywhere seems to be saying that the U2311h is the one to buy... but it's only a good deal if you can get it under 190...

Who would trust Ebuyer after the last monitor fiasco, not the first time they have done this either. Like the monitor but I will not be buying from this company again.
#21
In the USA it has a basic 1 year parts and labour warranty so maybe this is how they are keeping the price down!
It’s usually a 3 year on site warranty with LG UK so hopefully this isn’t a sign of the way things are going. I’ve noticed a lot of monitor warranties are being cut back from 3 to 2 years. Note that Acer monitors are usually 3 year collect and return.
I’m glad I picked up a Dell U2311H for about £165 and it has a ‘proper’ old skool 3 year on-site warranty. ;)

That is a TN panel and this is IPS so hopefully a better screen except for gaming probably.

Good find but I doubt Ebuyer will go through with their promises.

Specs has this listed as 5m/s. Are you sure you're not looking at a review of an older model?

Edit ah no looks to be the right one, the usual bs by the manufacturer when stating ms times.

I need a new monitor for digital artwork and this seems to be it for me. This sold me from here: http://www.digitalversus.com/lg-flatron-ips231p-p357_10778_35.html

"We can only conclude that the IPS231P offers nothing short of accurate colour reproduction. Our test results are clear: the deltaE score, which represents the average discrepancy between the colours that should be shown and those actually visible, is just 2.8. As you can see from the chart below, some colours are reproduced more accurately than others, but with the average figure below 3.0, the remaining discrepancies are invisible to the naked eye."

"The great colour reproduction offered by the LG Flatron IPS231P makes it a great choice for design work, and the fact you can rotate to portrait mode makes it useful for anybody working with two displays at once. To gain that extra fifth star, it would need to be more responsive, have an HDMI input and have some handy extras like a USB hub or memory card reader."

Very good monitor graphic design et al
#32
After weeks of research, I just took delivery of one today from Lambda-Tek, delivered next day at £160.
First set of tests just complete & I'm well pleased with the results, only adjustment made was to reduce the brightness and contrast slightly from the factory settings. View angle and resolution does the job 100% and using as a second screen with my old 4x3 tube lets me design webpages and work with photoshop in perfect harmony.

I did consider the Dell U2311H which from my own digging uses the same panel inside. I dropped the Dell idea as:
1) I did not need USB ports on the monitor
2) Best deal from Dell was £208
3) The speakers not mentioned in the LG official (USA) spec. will be useful if I use this screen elsewhere.

Only word of caution is that this is aimed at North America / Europe (hence why you won't find on the UK site) so there is no direct support from LG UK (confirmed by UK customer support) and the instructions are aimed (with a 2 year warranty) for scandinavia down through netherlands to spain and east to russia... but there is a UK plug lead in the box!!! Bizarre!!!

Just run Shrek 2 and Paycheck, both dreamworks one Cgen the other not, no complaints even with fairly fast moving effects. I have also run a DirectX 3D test using "dxdiag" and yes I can see some blurring at the cube edges as they enter and leave from flat on but seems OK to me...Stress though I am not into gaming and just looking for a crisp, sharp monitor that has a good colour representation and wide view angle, ticks the boxes for me and I'm hard to please !!!

Hi - if I may? You're sure it is the DELL panel inside? Is the colour/RGB repro ok? What do you think to the resolution? And what is the tilt like - is the portrait angle ok?

Cheers

I don't think you can be sure, but in the Digital Versus review they 'suspect' it uses the same panel because of the high contrast ratios and similar specifications.

According to many records the panel in the LG IPS231P monitor is the LG type LM230WF3
These records also show the panel in the Dell monitor U2311H is the LG type LM230WF2
The records may be wrong, but what the hell, I'm happy :-)

Oh! and for #36 the resolution and angle is covered in #34, mechanical tilt works acceptably well as does the desk rotation, screen rotation and the height adjust but as you would expect, a stable desktop is a must and the higher it goes the more prone it is to vibration... Only thing I found strange at first with the design was that there was no mechanical feedback 'click' at 0 horizontal or 180 vertical positions, but then I guess the eye can tell when it's level?

Hope that helps someone in the decision process!

Crispyboy, I'm REALLY struggling with the choice between DELL U2311H and LG IPS231P-BN Which one do you think is better for MOVIES, videos, games?

Dell U2311H uses a LM230WF2 panel (with CCFL backlight) while LG IPS231P-BN uses a LM230WF3 (with a W-LED backlight) - I know W-LED backlight is way better than CCFL backlight, but is LM230WF3 a superior panel to WF2?

I'm confused and I can't decide which one I should buy...

Seen this one too btw?
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/23-asus-ml239h-ips-led-1920-x-1080-5ms-250-cd-m-hdmi-d-sub-dvi-d

Or the 24" VA panel Acer?
http://www.crescentelectronics.co.uk/benq-vw2420h-lcd-display-tft-24.html

If you mainly want a monitor for games and movies then I'd seriously spend the cash on a well reviewed 23-24" TN panel, as opposed to a bottom end VA/IPS
