This monitor one of two LG monitors I own and I have to say is my least favourite. My main gripe with it is the super thin frame which does give the appearance of a larger screen but it is not something I personally like. This is probably due to personal taste but does not detract from performance.
The screen has an incredibly small profile, from front to back it is extremely thing and is ideal if you are looking for a space saving model. The base lets the screen be adjusted slightly in height but mainly in forward and backward lean.
The screen displays a nice crisp image for both computer icons and images. Thankfully there were no dead pixels on the screen upon delivery. The 12ms response time ensure an ejoyable, fluid viewing of movies. The screen displays a great colour depth and has a great brightness, it performs very well in bright rooms. The screen does not have a glossy finish which I prefer as it prevents an annoying reflection from lights and windows etc.
In my opinion this is a top performing screen but it is let down on its actual looks.
