Not bad but has a bug,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LG 23EA63V 23-inch IPS LED 1920 x 1080 VGA DVI HDMI Monitor - Black (Accessory)
I am quite happy with the monitor as it has only a little light bleed in the bottom left corner, I have had to return other IPS monitors for terrible light bleed but I can live with this small amount. Also the anti-glare coating is not as distracting as it is on some IPS monitors, ie. the Dell U2312HM (other than I found the anti-glare coating too grainy and distracting the Dell is an excellent monitor).
But this monitor has an annoying bug in the firmware, every time the monitor is turned off and back on it resets the sharpness value to it's default (even though the osd says it hasn't, it has)and I find the default too sharp, so each time I have to set it back to the value I had already set it to. It is a bit of a pain to do because the menu is a little fiddly. Google "LG 23EA63V sharpness bug" and you will see other people have found this too, it also seems to apply to some other LG IPS models.
I would say because of this it might be better to get the LG IPS234V, which is around the same price, but that is the one I had to send back for terrible light bleed, though I am sure they vary from unit to unit and you might be lucky and get one with no bleed.
So, right now I am debating whether to keep this inspite of it's bug because the picture quality is nice and I am sick of trying to find an IPS monitor I can live with.
But can I live with this bug? If it wasn't for that I would give this monitor 5 stars and be very happy with it.
