good price, 16:10 (if you want that, there isn't many around), reputable brand, good warranty, blue power LED can be disabled
stand is a tiny bit wobbly but is adequate unless you plan on grabbing it and spinning it around a lot
I couldn't find many reviews of this particular panel but I'm very satisfied with it. For its price it does very well as a TN panel, it's not the most beautiful out there from every angle or with the best colour reproduction--that costs much more. I just use it for games so I preferred 16:10 and about this size & price, so it was perfect for me. (16:10 is not so easy to find these days!) Also apparently LG screens have some of the least input lag performance--I can't notice a difference in lag coming from a 19" Samsung 920NW, but there is no noticeable lag on this LG.

It has a blue LED power button that isn't terribly bright but I really enjoy the feature that lets you turn it off. And it is a nice low amber colour when in sleep mode.

I have no dead pixels, but I think NCIX's zero dead pixel policy is worth the few dollars for a guarantee.

Experience: 2 Years
Good all-around monitor,
Tactile touch menu is nice,
Nice colors.
TN panel
The stand doesn't let you do much adjustment to the monitor.
I bought this monitor two years ago and it is still going strong today. No dead pixels yet!

But, as today, if I would have $200, I wouldn't go with this LG panel for a few reasons.

1680x1050, and a TN panel.

The BenQ G2420HD is 24inch, 16:9 and about the same price.

- Sharp colours and contrasts
- no DVI cable included
- Stand does not telescope or swivel (but most LCDs don't)
Forget those cheap "16:9" and "1080p" LCDs - LG has a great piece of glass here with a 16:10 aspect ratio (read: more vertical space) and a pixel resolution that is usable for this size.

My only disappointment is the lack of DVI cable in the box - in this day and age, a 22" really needs DVI.

Experience: 60 Days

Great picture with vibrant colours and no ghosting.
No HDMI which is more or less the standard now
This monitor is an excellent piece of hardware and works exactly as advertised. With a small investment in a DVI-I cord you can enjoy an amazing picture. The lack of an hdmi port hurts this monitor but you cant go wrong for the price.

Experience: 10 Months
Excellent picture quality and contrast. Easy to set up and adjust according to your own preferences. Convenient mounting. Quality-Price ratio turned out to be better than expected.
Not really a weakness but buyers should be aware that this monitor doesn't has any speaker.
Very good in VGA ( D-Sub ) and excellent in DVI-D (dual link) Mode. Easy to find related documentation and spec sheet.
Exceed all my expectations.

- relatively inexpensive
- bright
- easy setup
- TN panel
This is a decent, inexpensive monitor. It has all the standard weaknesses of a TN panel; backlight bleed top and bottom, narrow viewing angle, mediocre colour reproduction. I'd buy it again if I was low on cash...

-Blazing-fast response time
-Excellent for action-packed games, movies, and Photoshop work
-4:3 ratio button on monitor is a neat touch
-Colors are very sharp with DVI
-DVI-D cable not included, you need to buy it yourself
As I do a lot of digital art in Photoshop and gaming, I needed a wide-screen that would give me the best of both worlds. This thing has a very fast response time, perfect for action-packed games such as Street Fighter IV or Crysis. The colors are very sharp and accurate, perfect for Photoshop work and movies.

I'm very glad I bought this, my 3-yr old 19" LG L1970HR LCD pales in comparison.
