4.0 out of 5 stars Great value screen with 16:10 real estate and latest AH-IPS panel, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
LG produce a huge number of LED panels for other manufacturers, so why not go direct to source and take their own screen!

This monitor is very good value in comparison with other 24" AH-IPS screens, thought I bought this primarily because 1920x1200 displays are rare these days with the 1080p HD TV marketing machine at full speed to the masses.

I work in IT on the computer all day and benefit from the extra working area and consistent backlighting, also haven't noted any dead or stuck pixels on this item.

I do find the Anti-Glare coating a little harsh on this screen leading to grainy text and whites, I think some of the latest screens from manufacturers like Dell have slightly reduced amount of coating, but it seems LG are persisting with the 3H anti-glare.

Pros

- Latest AH-IPS panel technology
- 1920x1200 (16:10) for 10% more working area than 1920x1080 (16:9)
- Nice dark brushed aluminium style finish
- Display Port connector suitable for both PC and Mac (mini Display Port / Thunderbolt) without an adapter
- Low power usage at 28W

Cons

- 2 year warranty a little lower than some competitors, but positively the documentation does state on-site swap out.
- No Display Port cable supplied, a little cheap (Though I needed a separate miniDP to DP anyway for macbook)
- Black text seems grainier than glossy Apple display even though they are based on the same LG panels, not sure if this is due to the hard anti-glare coating vs glossy, or just being spoilt by Apple retina text smoothing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mouse Tickler, 1 Nov. 2010
After reading reviews I was dubious about this product, but having experienced great success with the Rentokil Live Capture Mouse Trap I assumed that maybe the varying zap was due to a poor choice of battery.

So armed with the electronic mouse trap and a set of Energizer's finest, I placed the trap in the attic where the mice were scuttling overhead.

Upon checking the trap all of the peanut butter was licked clean, presumbly while the mouse was tickled and enjoying his electronic massage.
Or more likely the device failed to activate at all.

The only positive I can take from this is that the mouse has probably not been scared away from the peanut butter aroma, and has probably now got a taste for the number one bait.

I would recommend sticking with the live capture tube, which is very well designed and locks the mouse away without fuss or chance of escape.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5GB MINI > 40GB MONSTER, 13 Jan. 2005
Having been very tempted by the iPod and ZEN 40GB jukebox I decided to go for the Zen mini, without having ever seen one.
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 the mp3 files can be tagged based on filename & foldername etc, so I simply set the album tag to the folder name and you have an indexed list of all the albums on the player. This may also be sorted by genre, artist...
Build quality and looks are excellent, and the spare battery is an excellent addition to leave at work.
Overall an excellent player, order now you won't regret it!
