It's cheap for a reason

Advantages: Loads of inputs
Disadvantages: Rubbish speakers, bad freeview picture quality
Not a major fan of this TV/Monitor. Firstly there is the atrocious picture quality when watching freeview. No matter how much configuring you do, you'll simply be left with rubbish colours and blotchy, blocky images. As mentioned in the other review, when watching from a fair distance it isn't so bad but when sitting in close proximity to the screen, you're bound to notice.
Another problem I had with this monitor was the fact that while in PC Mode when I decided to watch a movie or play a game that had dark scenes or backgrounds the monitor would annoyingly dim. I managed to sort this problem out by toggling with the graphical settings on my computer.
The sound is canny and lacks clarity. I use the clear voice option which helps a little. I definitely recommend people to get a decent pair of speakers.
It does have a few good things going for it such as a copious amount of input sockets. Two HDMI inputs, PC input (VGA, DVI), two scart inputs, audio in, headphone jack, and component input.
If you're plan on getting a new TV/Monitor for films and games I'd advise you to stay well away from this one.
LG are supposed to be good with electronics but they did a pretty bad job here. I guess I now know why it was so cheap.
Summary: An average TV/Monitor combi
