Top critical review
you get what you pay for
on 29 April 2012
I purchased this monitor as I wanted to get into digital design and also wanted to future proof against possible 3D work I might do. out of the box it looks good. the stand is a bit flimsy and plasticy but it does the job. With this you get a bit of movement so you can adjust the angle of the screen, but height is not adjustable.
When I first turned it on it took a bit of button pressing to get the colours right but it was recognised by my PC and mac immediately and auto adjustment sorted the position of the screen (it was missing about an inch on the right).
The only problem I have had so far is with a dead pixel. It appeared within about 4 hours of use and at first was only intermittent, showing on very dark screens. however, over the coming weeks it got worse and it is now a permanent fixture, just off to the right of dead centre on my screen. To say that it's annoying is an understatement.
I tried LG customer services but I was told that they cannot accept a return for a single pixel, and that it needs to be a group of pixels to warrant a replacement.
Overall I would say this was a great budget 3D HD monitor, but you do get what you pay for, and in a few years when I'm sure this will probably break proper I will be buying something that has a bit more quality to it.
