Top quality monitor with good design
Member Name: wonkybox
Advantages: Cool shiny black finish. Very well built. Quality image has been sustained after nearly 2 years.
Disadvantages: Somewhat brittle stand
I've been using my W2261VP for nearly two years and I'm really happy with it.
Very easy to assemble out of the box, you just have to secure the stand with a bolt and you're ready to plug it in. Made of shiny black plastic, this monitor has a good design and fits in well with the rest of my black hardware.
The usual display connection options are available - VGA, HDMI and DVI. I've only been using the HDMI input with a Radeon 5770 video card and the monitor represents colour and line quality accurately when I compare it with a CAD drawing I get out of the printer.
It's also a pleasure for gaming, many games support the maxiumum resolution of this monitor and I've spent many a happy hour blasting away. My LG sees about 10-12 hours use per week for work and recreation and has yet to show a single dead pixel or discoloured element. I think this is worth mentioning as monitors from other manufacturers I have used haven't lasted as long without deteriorating.
If I have to mention drawbacks the stand is made out of a slightly brittle plastic and the on/off switch, although a great design feature seems a little brittle as well. They're both still unbroken though, so perhaps it's my own heavy-handedness. I would recommend getting some proper monitor cleaning products as well otherwise you'll smear the screen.
This is the first LG product I've used and I would recommend them to anyone. Apart from the stand the build quality is great. If you can afford it, buy this monitor!
Summary: Well worth shelling out extra money for.
