LG Electronics (LG) industry leading IPS monitors have garnered glowing reviews throughout the first half of 2013. Most of the models in LG’s monitor lineup incorporate IPS display technology, which provides superior image quality with strong contrast and vivid colors. Additionally, LG also uses IPS displays in many of its latest TVs, guaranteeing consumers an excellent home entertainment experience with a wide viewing angle.

 

“Employing advanced IPS displays give us a definite edge in the battle for picture quality supremacy,” said Il-geun Kwon, senior vice president and head of the LG Home Entertainment Company’s IT Business Unit. “These positive third party reviews, published by some of the world’s most reputable IT authorities, are proof of LG’s leadership in display.”

LG has been honored with a variety of important accolades in 2013, including a red dot award: product design for its Multi-Touch monitor (23ET63), and the Technical Image Press Association’s (TIPA) Best Photo Monitor award for the IPS ColorPrime monitor (27EA83). Additionally, German publication CHIP Test & Kauf ranked LG’s M2382D monitor number one in its Best Monitors list (for products in the 22- to 23-inch range, priced between 140 and 250 euros). 

The category-creating IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitor (29EA93) has received outstanding reviews and a number of sought-after awards. Thus far, LG’s cinematic monitor has collected iF design award 2013, Media Totaal’s Best Monitor 2013 award, Hardware.Info’s Silver Award (The Netherlands), SFT magazine’s best of four 21:9 aspect ratio monitors, Plus X Award (Germany), Ere Numérique’s Best Product Selection of May & June (France) and Digit’s Editor’s Pick for May (India).

“And testing, the device has undeniable qualities. A future bestseller in upscale. One wonders why the TV manufacturers have not thought as side image quality is far above what can be found in glossy panel. There are no annoying reflections, even when the room is lit. Beautiful. For a 29-inch IPS panel it is really good.”

“Facing facts, if you’re buying a display today, you should be looking at in-plane switching (IPS). Color reproduction and general performance is simply better than other options. The unfortunate part is that IPS displays tend to cost more than their counterparts. The 5ms refresh rate and positively stunning color saturation of the 23EA93 makes for joyous gaming.”

“In my testing, I found the LG Ultrawide display to be sharp, bright, and easy-to-read – providing good screen uniformity and contrast levels… even the smallest letters were crisp and without noticeable fringing.”

“The lag response is very low and for gaming it will work well and offer a very nice field-of-view in games. It really is an incredibly well made, and unique monitor in the marketplace today.”

“This (TV) monitor is also very reactive to the IPS display technology (13 ms in our tests, with a negligible reverse response time). It may therefore satisfy the majority of players (only the most demanding would ask for an even faster model, preferably 120 Hz).”

“The color space is extremely big with a nearly perfect white balance. This leads to wide viewing angles and high uniformity. In short, it is perfect for professional graphics and video editing.”

Slashgear, the U.S., Touch 10 Monitor (23ET83) Review, May 2013

“Instead of turning this review out with ultra-speed, it became more of everyday experience: this is a monitor I dread having to send back.

With what LG quotes as a 178 degree viewing angle from all sides, it’s easy to see why this machine is aimed at not just personal use, but multi-viewer interaction as well.”
