If it's 2ms then very good price

This monitor probably won't be in stock until June like the Play.com 22inch TV one, as it's a new model.

Found it listed on the German LG site, and it is HDTV compatible via the DVI-D connector which has HDCP.

Received mine from Scan last month, very pleased with it. A good alternative to the Samsung 226BW.

There seems to be 2 versions of this monitor, both with the same number, one shows 5ms (already available) and the other 2ms (available soon?)

Here is a site selling the existing 5ms model


What has been added to this site is a pre-order for a NEW version of the monitor that offers 2ms.

Here is an overview of the NEW monitor from the main LG site


It says it is 2ms response.

How you are supposed to be sure you order the NEW monitor and not the OLD monitor I am not sure.

The 5ms one is L226WT and the 2ms one is L226WTQ

But if you look at my first link above, to the MicroDirect site, that is offering the 5ms one.

But if you look across to the right where it says Manufacturers Code it says
L226WTQ not L226WT

Wow... Killer monitor! Exactly what I'm looking for! Will wait till it's back in stock though.
Voted hot.

very nice... i'll await some real stock before purchasing but I will be doing exactly that! Thanks.

You may want to check out a big discussion on Hard Forum about this monitor, and the different model numbers.

Only had a quick look, but seems like the WTQ model is best to avoid due to panel issues.

Voted Hot! !

A word about the Dynamic Contrast Ratio (DCR) technology...

The real contrast ratio of the monitor is 1000:1 which is still very good, only few monitors have better ratios, and they're nowhere near that sort of price. The technology that boosts that to 3000:1 is quite simple (see link below), but is not always good, particularly for movies.
To be honest our TV is 1000:1 and it's good enough for the darkest movies, so don't let this stop you. But don't buy the 3000:1 marketing stunt, you could be disappointed, and might not even use the DCR feature.

Here's a review of its little 19" brother:

I still think I'll get one when they're back in stock, at that price it is still an unbeatable offer, even at 1000:1.

An option to bear in mind, and in stock, is the Asus one;
