LG 24EB23PY 24-inch LED 1920 x 1200 VGA DVI Displa&hellip by LG Electronics

LG produce a huge number of LED panels for other manufacturers, so why not go direct to source and take their own screen!

To start, the white colour scheme is by far the best, as the rear of every device is in fact white, so all the others with the coloured fronts just look plain cheap and stuck on with pritt stick.
While 5Gb capacity seemed a little low in comparison to other devices, it has proven to be plenty without making the browsing of tracks and albums downright silly.
At first I panicked when trying to work out how to organise the albums, as the method used by the Zen Micro by default is ID3 tags, and my mp3s were terribly tagged. But when using the import wizard… Read more
