I wasn't going to review this but after seeing it on the wanted list I ran downstairs to check the empty box as wasn't sure if it was the same model but yes it it. We purchased this along with a new computer system. My partner decided he was fed up of the laptop and wanted a bigger screen and proper pc. Yay for me as I now have sole use of the laptop whilst he has the new computer. Comes to something when you argue about who can use the laptop especially when a 4 year old gets involved wanting to go onto cbeebies.
We purchased ours from Comet costing £139.99.
The LG make seem to have become a lot more popular recently.
This was in a box with minimal polystene packaging, It weighs just 4.6 kg. The edging of screen had that clear plastic film covering it. You know the stuff you don't want to remove as it means it could get scratched or is that just me that leaves it on my mobile phone screen for weeks before removing it lol. When we did remove the covering the monitor was a lovely smooth shiny black finish to it.
The base of the monitor is detached when unpacked but easily slots into place when in the upright position.
This 22" slim style HD monitor beats the laptop hands down. The quality and pictures are great on it. The colour is perfect and is ideal for viewing photos on. It's pixel resolution is 1920 x 1080.
The monitor has a power saving mode which means if left unused for more then about 4 minutes the screen turns off, just move the mouse or touch keyboard to get it to jump back to life.
The power on / off button is on the front and has a white arrow light underneath of it, not sure what that's all about really.
The other buttons are to adjust the brightness, screen size etc. The button on far left of the 5 buttons is a menu which will guide you through.
The relevant cables were included in the box and was very easy for me to set up, I sat and watched as hubby done it all. Honestly it was simple to set up and start up.
I think if this monitor was on a small desk or work space it would be too big, we have it on a big desk that is quite wide so it fits well.
You can adjust the position of screen also to meet personal needs.
This is a environmentally friendly monitor as it has lower power consumption then other monitors and also free of hazardous substances like halogen and mercury. It also has a longer life then other monitors.
Hope I have made this review seem like the monitor is good as that is what it is.
