What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice performance for the price Reasonably clear, sharp picture. Works pretty well with a MacBook Pro (2011). A bit of a challenge configuring the settings between the Mac and the LG monitor, but that's more of a user (me) issue. Overall, I'm happy with the product's performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great monitor This is a great sized monitor. I use it for viewing construction blueprints and as a 2nd screen. I would have given it a 5-star rating, but next to my Mac, the picture isn't as sharp. For the money, it is a great monitor and is easy to use, easy to adjust, and I would recommend it if you view large items such as plans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent picture quality The screen quality of this monitor is excellent. Great picture and I like the "Reader" setting. Gave it four stars instead of five because I feel it lacks two things: there is no software to adjust the screen from the computer but more importantly, the settings buttons on the monitor do not illuminate (hard for me to see in certain lighting situations, so I need a flashlight to see what each button controls). Overall, I do like the quality (better than other monitors I have looked at for the price I paid) and if you don't care about the two issues I described, I recommend this monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for work and... This product is perfect for work and a bit of fun to relax by the time the work is difficult. Recommend to anyone who has his head in the clouds and feet on the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor for the price. The first thing I liked when I assembled the monitor to the stand was the ability to rotate the monitor to a vertical position. This made cable connections very easy. Very easy to set up with the menu options. I liked the auto-positioning feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice product I just purchased this monitor on 1/1/2015 , perfect size , great sharp picture but I am disappointed it doesn't have built in speakers. Even my old monitor I got 12 years ago has speakers built in.I see another person wrote about the speakers maybe you should send your customers some speakers. it's little things I was surprised about the disc it came with didn't come in a cover and there isn't a instruction's in the disk.The stand is a bit flimsy but as far as everything else so far so good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minor issues figuring out settings Not being technical adepts, my wife and I took a little bit of time figuring out the settings, not least of which that we had to run our sound function through the monitor. But these were not that difficult to figure out. We are pleased with the display, clarity and size of the image in the location where we are using it, and it seems to suit both media and document functions just fine. Good product for a good price as listed, and we did obtain a bit of a bargain through Best Buy.

I have Windows 8.1 and installed the Dual Smart Solution software that came with the monitor and it will not open. Is there a fix for this problem?

Under properties/compatibility, it says that there are compatibility issues. I can't find the dual smart solution on the LG website. Is there a different software I should use? Is there a driver update that I need that can be downloaded? The monitor is the 24MP56HQ-P
