Should get warm in here!
Whats not to like at the price...

Can't find a good independent review of it though.
Cheap!
Bargain, got a two year old LG monitor playing me up at the monent so this will do nicely.
Very tempted, but I really really want one with inbuilt speakers. I know they are usually carp but I dont want external speakers.

PWM, no A-TW Polariser

What's not to like is the 14ms GTG reponse time: lg.com/us/…-PN

Only the IPS234V has a 5ms reponse: lg.com/uk/…tor
Bought one of these the other month. Great monitor so far, good viewing angles. Nice image. I'm no expert on image quality but it gets the job done for me (games, programming, web development).

If you're using HDMI, you'll need to adjust the settings on your graphics card and the monitor to make it fit for computer usage (sharpness, overscan, etc.)

Blacks aren't that great and the gloss frame is kinda annoying. It used to hurt my eyes on the first day but after adjusting some settings and using it for a day I've gotten used to it. I've turned brightness to zero and switched on power saving just to dim it down a bit.

Some people complain about the red LED that blinks on standby. You can disable the power-on indicator but not the standby indicator for some reason. I personally find it handy since I prefer switching things off when they're not in use.

Oh and setting up, I felt like I was going to break it when trying to attach the stand. Scary experience, required a lot of force.
If it's anything like the IPS224v then it has excellent screen quality. The base is a little flimsy and not height adjustable. I got the 224 for £103 about 4 months ago.
I just ordered one,the reviews for this monitor are very good.Heat added.
Rusty the a-tw polariser has been dropped on high end nec monitors what in the hell is a £100 monitors gonna do. Secondly pvm is on most monitors led or
I have this monitor and the difference from my old lg w2242s is leaps above, it's brighter crisper and much clearer, I couldn't go back now.
This versus

?

Price difference and size discrepancy aside, which is better? Do they both have that eye-straining PWM thingy?
Ordered three of these from Amazon only a couple of days ago, now crossing my fingers hoping I can cancel before they dispatch!
Had this for a year or so, for everything other than gaming - 10/10, colours are vivid, brightness/contrast is great, viewing angles are superb.
Thanks to the response time however, there's alot of tearing when playing games or fast moving content, but it's still a great monitor for everyday use

scotia2 nearly all modern monitors have PVM. Some can see it some can't. If you do personally see it, then turn the brightness to max so it switching pvm off and then turn the brightness down via the control panel.

Why the hell did they drop that, without the polariser they are like TN monitors! I was looking at some NEC as well, Dell and HP have a few non PWM, but that Dell 2913WM I had this morning wasn't very impressive
Must.
Stop.
Spending.
Money.

*clicks buy*
same price at amazon for those that care.

I also want to know weather this or hotukdeals.com/dea…e=3

shouldn't be like tn monitors anyway .. since the frame rate control isn't there ..

I have owned one of these monitors since late last year. It's incredible value for money. I've just bought my second!

This is way better. I'd recommend anyone considering this monitor to purchase from Amazon instead. Their level of customer service is amazing when it comes to problems/returns. It's been touch and go with Amazon's stock with this monitor over the last few months, but it's great that it's finally come back in stock.

Fantastic monitor, superb colour representation. I use it when working with photoshop, it really is outstanding.
I bought one a month ago - literally speechless at just how good it is for the money. It was such an upgrade over my old 5 year old LCD monitor. Pretty tempted to get another but I need a solution for the speakers.

I game with it as well and I'm not sure what the refresh rate is but it seems absolutely fine to me.

All the claims of a wobbly stand are pretty true. It's not game breaking and it's not fragile, but if you nudge the desk, it will wobble a tad. But that's fine because if it's a huge issue, just get a replacement VESA mount!
Is there such a thing as decent IPS monitor like this but with built-in TV tuner? I see LG do a couple but not sure about quality both as a TV and as a monitor. It won't be primary monitor, just something that sits to the side, probably doing TV most of the time as I'm workin.. ahem.. but useful as 2nd monitor occasionally.

Ah now I remember you! I just wanted to say thanks for your input on another IPS thread I saw on here a couple of days ago. Should have said on that thread but couldn't remember what , who, where just now ! This site is all the better for people like you who understand and translate the in depth info for us who don't know as much. And if it was you who wrote about someone slagging you off - its their shame.

Thanks for the kind comments, I am just being honest and expressing my factual opinions on things to try and help everyone make a decision on whether it will be suitable, but people take things the wrong way, get defensive and want to argue. But a fool is easily parted with their money.

I'm still on the hunt for a decent monitor, and unlike TV's you can't exactly walk in to a store and have a look at one as they keep limited models on display. Also review sites always get cherry picked panels then after a few months of manufacture the manufacturers can even substitute the panels with other brands of less quality. Samsung do this a lot!. Fortunately the LG is advertised as being IPS, but I know for a fact it will not contain an A grade panel, these will most likely be C grade as LG never put the quality panels in the budget displays, A grade will go in their higher range and also Dell screens, in fact when I worked for LG and Dell visited to discuss us manufacturing their displays Dell standards were higher than LG's so all the best kit had to go in the Dell stuff believe it or not. It was also the same with the CRT monitors, convergence, uniformity and contrast was set up more carefully and the ranges of acceptance was different depending on product/manufacturer.

They cannot simply throw away panels to get perfection, hence all the budget models, same panels but lower grade or missing filters/polarisers, as well as cut back features or cheaper mainboard/tcon boards etc.

TV tuner or get a cheap panny ips tv
Hi, we have just bought a Dell laptop which has Dual 1 GB AMD Radeon HD 7470 (Half H., 2 cards w/ 1DP and 1DVI-I each)

Would we be able to connect two of these?

Yeah it has a VGA input and you can also use the DVI input, using i to d makes no difference but I don't think you can plug a DVI-D male to a DVI-I.

I have a quick question regarding HDMI output, why does it look so soft and colourless on my monitor? I'm running from the mainboard on a gigabyte z77x-3dh. Any settings I'm missing? I'm getting overscan on original. Wish I had a VGA cable handy.
This has now increased to £119!.....doooo should have ordered when I had the chance

Any chance you could let me know on finding a good monitor?

So many reviews have contrary comments and easily get lost in it.

Anyone having a problem with stand by on this unit?

When it goes into standby, you have to switch on from the monitor rather than it waking with Windows 7
