Now for the good news......I am running Windows 7 O/S the box says it works under Vista and is the usual Plug and Play. Although LG recommend installing the software that came with the kit. I did not install it. The reason for this was, I had a few minor problems with Windows 7 and did not want to install outmoded drivers. I thought if this is truly P&P lets see what Windows 7 makes of it...... Oh Ye of little faith! No problem at all, it worked straight away. The screen resolution is set to full HD 1920 x 1080.(This can be adjusted if needed). I do quite a bit of photography work using CS4 and other progs.Since most photos are are taken with the full 12 megapixel setting. This monitor in full HD shows excellent quality on the photos viewd. There has been no obvious change of colour cast across or down the image display. So that's good news for anyone into graphic design or Photography, where it might be critical. If I ever get a Blueray player (who can afford blueray films anyway?)I am sure this monitor's resolution will be brilliant.The screen surface is anti-glare which is useful if windows are nearby.The common glossy black finish looks good and the on off switch is strategically placed and cleverly designed.(If you buy one you will see what I mean). Remember I have not installed the software and am using straight out of the box. I have had no need to alter the contrast/brightness etc. I have a feeling I may need to do this if adjustments are necessary. As I am content with the display.You know the old saying.......If it aint broke ,dont fix it!
I am still tring to work out how LG have managed to to this. It is a widescreen monitor (16 x 9) but shows circles as they would appear in 4 x 3 format. IE; Usually widescreem images you see on some WS televisions and on my previous monitor the image is stretched the fill the screen I was so used to seeing oval circles on my old monitor that I could not believe what I was seeing.There before my very eyes were pefectly round circles. The clever boys at LG have designed something they call Widescreen 4x3 technology. What on earth this I don't know , all I can say is that it works very well. I gotta feeling if I asked how they did it, if they told me they would have to shoot me.
Indeed, it's possible to mount it to the wall, but it's IMPOSSIBLE to disconnect the base!!!!
I contacted the manufacturer regarding this issue and they answered me that the "neck" which connects the monitor to the base is not removable.
Don't but this product if you going to mount it!
I am using the monitor with an old HP desktop running Ubuntu and plan to plug in my Vista laptop on occasions. I am not using it for graphics heavy applications, so can't comment on the high performance features but it meets my basic needs well.
It is very light and thin making it easy to lift into position and has a small footprint on the desk. The black glossy finish is good looking and seems like it will be durable.
Assembly and installation were easy, especially as Windows XP recognised it as plug and play. Installing the drivers and the setup utility were pain free and definitely worth it as the display is very bright and dimming it down using the buttons on the side of the monitor was not easy, the LG utility allows you to do it on screen which is easy.
The images generated are clear and crisp and give good blacks. I've not noticed any ghosting with fast moving images.
The ease of use 'issue' of the brightness/contrast buttons is all that prevents this display getting the full 5 stars, in my humble opinion.
