So the price from the last year has really got up. I didn't get this one from amazon bought it in the tech store near me and it was on sale for 120£ and I'm really glad I managed to catch that time this bad boy. Now it is the most perfect LED monitor that I have ever seen. 27'' with Full HD and HDMI man. It seems that price is little up but it is worth every penny belive me. I am using it for a year now it is really kicking it with the best preformance. Just amazing quality of picture. It is outstanding that monitor can be that great quality. I didn't belive it when it said that you can insert your headphones in the monitor untill I saw it and I was really suprised. So you have less cables than other monitor and the resolution 1920 x 1080 is just amazing. Really liking this new techonogy! So since I bought my PS4 I stopped using my LED TV 32'' and got mine new monitor for my PS and I didn't regret it. You should just see those details. It is sooo real I'm never going to leave that monitor not for any money!
I bought this monitor for my daughter computer. at the time of purchase this monitor was on sale so i managed to get it for £100. which is a bargain as i've seen it for around £150 - £200.
In the box it contained a couple of leaflets, a power adapter and a manual to attach the base and another manual on how to use it and the features and functions the monitor has. the monitor does not come with the base attached. so you will need to attach it. this takes around a couple of minutes there is not much too do, you just need to connect the monitor to the base and thats it. The instructions given in the manuals are very useful, not once did i feel confused, the diagrams are useful and the text is not confusing.
Setting it up
The monitor can be connected to a VGA or a HDMI port. for my son computer i connected it using the HDMI cable. once i set up the monitor and switched on the computer. the image quality is great, everything is clear and picture perfect, this is a major improvement from our old monitor. i followed the manual and learned how to configure the brightness, contrast and many other things. the monitor has some options which you can use. so for example if you were to watch a movie you can go to the menu, and there is a option called cinema which will turn up the brightness and contrast. this makes the viewing experience 100 times better, the image is crisp and clear, even in the dark scenes you are able to see everything picture perfect. it doesn't take long to set up, it should take around 10 - 15 minutes, for me it took around 20 minutes, this was because i had to unplug the old monitor, dismantle it and then set up the new monitor.
There are quite a few options on the monitor, there is a option which you are able to enable power saving mode, this will reduce the amount of power that the monitor uses when it is active and when it is in standby.
The monitor colour is black, and it looks sexy. it has a nice sleek design and it is slim. this monitor can also be used as a TV if you wanted too. i have not yet used it as a TV. The screen resolution is 1920*1080 Full HD with a format of 16:9.
Overall this is great monitor for both watching movies/ tv shows and for just regular computer usage. The size of the monitor is quite big, so you will need to check if it is the right size to fit on your computer desk. i am pleased with the quality of the image, it is picture perfect and so far my son and i have not had a problems with it.
LG 27" LED Monitor - IPS Vivid Colour
At first glance there is something very attractive to the eye about this monitor, whether its presence be on your fine pine office desk or spread neatly down the office this monitor really does look the part, with its high quality black finish and high-colour HD display. The monitor has inputs for D-Sub
DVI-D, & HDMI connections aswell as an audio-out jack lead.
The screen boasts a 27" display with a wide viewing angle with a colour depth of 16.7 million colors, pretty impressive!! The unit is a plug and play system so automatically detects when a device is connected to it, controls and functions are simple and easy to use. The screen weighs in at around 4.5 kilos so isn't difficult to move around.
There's quite a range of monitors to choose from, so once you've got an idea of what size your after I would then recommend your choice of manufacturer. I've purchased a lot of electronic goods from LG over the year's including an additional widescreen TV, monitors, phones etc and have being happy with the quality of products purchased from the company.
For better results use a high performance HDMI cable, preferably one that has gold plating for improved contacts and overall better output. The unit powers up quickly, and turns off with the click of a button, power saving settings can be configured manually via the attached device.
One thing that is very apparent about this monitor is just how crisp the picture really appears, when watching movies in HD/Blueray the results have been seen to be better than that found with most new TVs.
I've now got two of these units working along side each-other using a dual screen calibration, which has allowed me plenty more desktop space to work with for my applications. Very happy indeed.
Thanks for reading.
I have recently taken over all web development and graphic design work at my company and needed a new larger monitor. The monitor I had previously was fine, but it was quite small making graphic design in particular a difficult task.
I set out looking for a few features, cheap, adjustable and a clean crisp picture.
I got this monitor for £160 from a supplier that I use. The monitor was in a damaged box so I managed to negotiate a cheaper fee. This is however listed on the internet for between £180 - £200.
This monitor is clear, crisp and for the price I couldn't have wanted more. I can't comment on viewing this at accute angles as it sits directly in front of me but from the slight angle I have it at, the picture is still clear and doesn't change.
The thing I like about this monitor is the fact that the blacks are very dark and the colours seem to stand out. My previous monitor kind of blurred bright colours but this monitor I can see slight imperfections with different shades of colour which is perfect for what I require.
Another bonus is the fact that this monitor is HDMI compatible. The difference between VGA and HDMI is astonishing and if you purchase this monitor, you must use it with a HDMI cable.
You can use this monitor with other devices not just a computer. You can basically use it as a TV.
It comes with the base separate from the monitor so it is a case of connecting the two. It took me all of around 5 minutes to un-box and install this monitor which includes removal of the old one so I can't complain at the installation.
I would say even for somebody who isn't sure what they are doing, it wouldn't take any longer than 10 - 15 minutes.
The instructions are very clear for those who would need to follow them. You also get all the cables that you need so that is one less thing you need to worry about.
If I was looking for a smaller TV, I would definitely consider using this monitor as the picture quality is great and at 27" it is a decent size.
It is a bit overkill to use as a normal computer monitor but if you require a monitor for graphic design or just want one that has a great picture and is quite large then look into getting this one.
This electronic IPS LED monitor provides a brilliant image for a home screen and cinematic experience. Personally, I think that the picture quality is mint and that it gives its audience perfected realistic life like colour. It is comfortable to view especially if it is put at the right angle in you living room or bedroom. However, I like mine in the living room because it adds to the homely feel. The picture or colour doesn't falter not even when your sitting at an awkward angle, this is one brilliant thing about this flat screen. It does not go dark when you sit at a low or high angle compared to the screen. It has a wide viewing angle so no matter where the screen is positioned in your home setting you are able to turn the screen in your direction with ease, so if you start to feel tired you can lie down and it does not effect your cinematic experience.
The screen is of a really good size too. I think I say this as an understatement because it is a brilliant size. It is brilliant for mounting up on the wall, though I haven't done this myself because the way my living room is shaped. It is HDMI capable so you can plug in any software that is also HDMI capable to get the full potential experience. Software's such as a PS3 for gamers who want a crisp action pact game on the big screen with full sound and picture quality. It is also adaptable for headphones. However, this is only useful if you have headphones with a long cord, otherwise you would find yourself sitting right up in the screen where the image doesn't look desirable. The cables are also of a pretty decent length and they reach my sockets with ease. You can also hook your PC or Laptop up to make your laptop or PC screen better and brighter.
Obviously, as expected this electronic IPS LED monitor is 100% in HD resolution and this brings the brilliant picture quality, as I mentioned before, to life. It is a whopping, 1920 x 1080 and this is really efficient. This is then also reinforced by the complete smooth colour change. It must be known that the colour in this HD resolution monitor is completely and utterly accurate. It gives a potentially brilliant quality of image, that is crisp and sharp. This means that this monitor is useful for pretty much anything. Whether this be playing games, watching films or simply just surfing the world wide web. However, the only downfall to this HD monitor is that it has a hefty weight. When picking this up I found I struggled and it took two people to carry, but once it's set up this really isn't an issue. Not unless you are prone to refurbishing your living room. If this is the case then I'd either get it mounted onto a wall or not buy it.
Overall, I think this monitor is value for money and I would buy this again if I had the chance, or if I needed to.
