5.0 out of 5 stars very good 2d and 3d monitor for a nice price, 14 May 2013
This review is from: LG D2343P-BN 23-inch D42P Series 3D Widescreen Full HD LED 3D Cinema Monitor (Accessory)
If you are looking for a relatively cheap IPS type LCD-LED monitor in the 23 inch range, AND want to enjoy wonderful 3d-effects, look no further.
The price-quality ratio of this monitor is very good. It supports 3 types of connection: vga (dsub), DVD-D and HDMI. It is HDCP compliant. It has very vivid colours and brightness. As a 2d monitor it is very good for the price. But I bought this for the 3d via computer (as a 3d tv was not in my budget range now) . The monitor has an auto-3d button: that works making either 2d photos and videos artificially into 3d (watch with polarized glasses, 2 supplied - works with polarized cinema glasses also). the 2d to 3d is mediocre but worth a look. Photo's are better than video. But now the native 3d materials: this effect is VERY good, despite what some reviws on the internet might say. I tried out a variety of half-SBS or half-OU videos and bluray 3d rips and they look stunning. Mind you, you have to sit some 50-100cm from tthe screen for best effect and watch videos fullscreen. Once started, for instance an 3d-HSBS-MKV file, set to fullscreen and press the 3d menu button on the bottom-front of the monitor and hey presto! wonderful 3d.
My friends were also quite impressed by the 3d effects.

It also can connect via HDMI 1.4 cable to a bluray player to play real 3d discs. I dont have that possibility myself but given previous findings, i am sure this will be amazing too.

Only a few less positve points, i must mention:
-the monitor wobbles on its stand when the buttons are pressed or table/desk is jolted.
-The operating of the menu butttons takes some time to get used to, as it;s hard to see the labels above the buttons. I solved this by sticking littele white round stickers above the buttons with feltpen symbols/lettering on them. Worsk a charm for me but some may find this off-putting visually.
-Apparantly, if you set the energy saving mode and change to 3d mode (auto max brightness etc), and change vback to 3d-off, the energy saving mode will remain off. hs to be reset manually thru'the menu.

On the PLUS side:
- two 3d glassed are supplied, but of regular variety, not one clip-on version for spectacles wearers, as was advertised by LG.
-wonderful 3d
-cheap IPS screen
-response time is good for films, can be set to 'fast' in the menu for 2d videos.

all in all, i am very content with this monitor. i can recommend it.

Does it have a remote control, like the summary says? Other reviews I have read say they would have preferred a remote control as well.
