Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big screen, vivid colors, and no problems for as long as I've owned it. I almost wish I'd bought 2. There are very few electronic products that I don't have to worry about. This is one of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent monitor I like that it's big, IPS and has VESA mount options. You can also connect to it using HDMI, VGA (D-SUB) or DVI. However one thing that's not clear is that at Full HD (1920x1080) resolution this is not a 75Hz monitor. I've tried it on all connection options with direct cables. It runs at 75Hz only when you get <=1280x1024 resolution which I don't know about you, but I haven't bought this Full HD monitor to run at that resolution

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing all Cords Bought this at Best Buy Sept/16, but hadn't realized they had sold me a monitor that was missing all the cords and a surprising # of screws behind the monitor. At the time I was in such a rush to use the monitor I just unplugged the cords from my existing monitor to the new LG. Made aware of this when my brother who noticed the unusual angle of my monitor. Terrible experience because I already threw away my receipt. Buyers beware. Open the box in the store.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this monitor.

What is the native contrast ratio for this monitor?

Asked by: Paner

i'm really confused why is LG selling this newer 27MP38 model with higher specs compared to the 27MP37 $50 less than it?

Asked by: honestjoe

There are reports that screen split software disables Windows UAC, which means all software on the machine runs as Administrator. Is that correct?
