The monitor has about a third the weight and depth of a conventional CRT monitor! Which makes it great if you are short on space It has a silver bezel which makes it look that bit different and special! This monitor can manage the resolution of 1280 x 1024 @ 75Hz, which is very good! The monitor can accept DVI and standard Analogue signals, meaning you don't have to change your graphics card if you don't want The power transformer is intregrated into the montor, meaning less cable mess, and means you can mount it onto the wall far easier. The image is good in games, and DVD films... however when scrolling down pages sometimes the image 'jumps' and makes it look like your computer is slow. I have just installed 2 of these screens in a Radan system (CAD/CAM) and they work beautifully. The only thing is that it is difficult to look over someone shoulder to see their monitor (because the picture looks different from all angles) but this is just the technology in general, not just this specific monitor. The monitor appears to be very high quality. However the only doubts i have with the monitor is my past experiance with LG products, both a CD-Rom and a CRT monitor broke when they were just out of their warranty period. This monitor has a three year guarantee, which is a decent length of time i suppose. The only advantage of the TFT monitor is the space saved, and there will not be x-rays emitted from the monitor (like CRT/TV) as it works on a different principle. It is a very nice monitor, however if you do not need to save deskspace then i would suggest you buy a CRT monitor for about £200 cheeper! I thought it was quite obvious how i stood on the item as i suggested buying a CRT monitor instead. But, I will repeat. If you need to save space, or just want a TFT monitor to look good then go for it! But if you just want a monitor, then CRT monitors still have a better
resolution, colour depth and are a lot cheaper.
I recently purchased this from my local independent computer store, the price was incredibly cheap and for what you get it?s well worth parting with your cash for. Picture is crisp, big and bold. You?ll need to go up to a higher resolution ? 1152x86 pixels to fully appreciate it?s viewing beauty, it?s pleasure to have on your desk and a beauty to just sit and stare at. It renders video and other moving images very well and comes with 7 pre-selectable ?light view? modes for different functions, i.e. general use, video, photo, text night and day to save you playing around with all the confusing brightness and contrast settings. It?s also worth going for the 17? version over the 15?, the price difference is minimal so it?s worth going for size over price, especially if you intend to use it for more than just world processing. The only thing I would say it lacks is manoeuvrability, although the pixel stand it comes with isn?t too bad, it learns quite far up and forward and looks as if the screen could be mounted on a wall. All in all, a good piece of kit!
