Pros Great Contrast, REALLY bright (sorry CNET review guy, maybe others are brighter but this one is bright enough to blind you...if you want it to be), wonderful 1080p definition, great features (although the dual web and Cinema mode don't work for mine)
Cons The Cinema and Dual Web mode don't work on mine...however i wasn't planning on using that a bunch anyway so not a big deal
Summary My last monitor (also an LG) was good, it had 720p resolution and good features, but seeing as i am a gamer i needed something that would work well for gaming. The monitor also definitely needed to have an HDMI port. With these requirements i happened to come across this one.
I hooked my PS3 up to this monitor as well as my computer and am EXTREMELY pleased with it! The headphone jack on the back is perfect for hooking up speakers as well, (in my case the "ice" speakers by iSound) blu-rays look great on it and it is amazing to view all sorts of HD content on it! I am very pleased with this monitor and will definitely buy from LG in the future!
Pros Good color, matte screen, very little heat generated, light weight and thin. HDMI, DVI and SVGA inputs, high resolution and low price.
Cons Didn't come with any video cable, but who knows what you'll plug to. No height adjustment (other than remove the base), and not much tilt.
Summary Great price, much more bang for the buck than an LCD monitor. Good size and low power draw. Bought mine at Frys for $279 in May 2010. It was recognized immediately by my Macbook Pro i7 with Snow Leopard. I even found an HDMI to mini Display port cable. Great 1920x1080 resolution (shows as 1080p on display utility), and 5M:1 contrast ratio.
