5.0 out of 5 stars very good 2d and 3d monitor for a nice price, 14 May 2013
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice old style shoot-em-up now in 3D!, 10 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Xevious 3D/G+ (Video Game)
This is quite good, if not a too fast or complex shoot-em-up from the old arcade and homecomputer years, but includes both the old 2D versions as well as the titled 3D version, which is nice!
Gameplay is simple: use 2 weapontypes, in 3 variations as powerups, and shoot everything and avoid the mines&missiles etc.
Its a nice game if you don't expect anything too flashy and enjoy the 'old style' shoot-em-ups.

5.0 out of 5 stars best Sylvester "WHO", 13 May 2004
this is the first S.McCoy WHO i ever saw, and the best one!
Even compared to other Who-actor era's, this one is one of my favourites! (i love vampire stuff!)
the story has nice, spooky build up, great special effects, a dramatic sence, in all, very well done. it was also the very first Dr WHO video i ever bought.
recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars a bit disapointing and slow, 9 Mar. 2004
I thought i wanted to know how the Daleks started out in the first season of Dr Who. I found the story a bit disappointing. Because it's 7 episodes, the story is a bit slow. also, the Daleks don't scream "Exterminate" all the time, a shame because that is what i personally always find rather interesting about them!!!! (others might disagree with this!). But the plot is quite alright , though i would have preferred to have it condensed to, say, 5 or 6 eps in stead of 7.
But it is a nice story for nostalgia-sake and for completing the Dalek-collection. I am just more of a fan of later Dr Who, i guess.
also, the remastered, digitized image is often a bit irritating, as lots of diagonals in the picture are jagged.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable six-parter, the one with the giant maggots!, 9 Mar. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
CLASSIC Who, nice Jon Pertwee story with a Welsh mining community and countryside crawling with giant maggots that make you wither and die if they touch you. Has a bit with a nice, funny disguise for Pertwee. This story is the departure of companion Jo Grant, who falls in love!
And the Doctor whizzes around in his car "Bessie" again.
Worthwile!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favourites, 9 Mar. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like this Peter Davison story, with a double role for Nick Courtney as Brigadeer Lethbridge-Stewart (twice!), introduction of Turlough,a sinister appearance by the Black Guardian, lots of transmatting back and forth, and materialising the Tardis in different time-zones.
Lots of fun, at least I think so. (A friend of mine was less enthusiastic about this one).

4.0 out of 5 stars great after 2 "spins", 9 Mar. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hometime (Audio CD)
This album needed, for me, a bit of repeated listening to appreciate fully, but after 2-3 times, it's, i think, a great album. perhaps less pophit-style songs than earlier albums, but still a great album.
recommended for Moyet-fans, bluesfans etc.
