Rated 4 out of 5 Got a Steal
Even though it's discontinued and I got this as a return, I think its a great product. Only one draw back can't get any updates for it.

After using this product for almost two years, I can give a fair review. The price point at the time of purchase was the main driving factor in choosing this monitor. Overall, the image quality is good for general purpose use.
The pedestal stand is a little flimsey for a monitor this wide. Too wobbly.
I have found the touch-illuminated controls to be a frustrating gimmick because you cannot see the printed labels in a dimly lit environment. Moreover, cruising over the different controls to see what their pop-up menu has can lead to inadvertently changing/activating some setting.
The forteManager software has never worked...it will not even open. Running Vista with all current updates. Have tried to check for and download forteManager updates from LG website, but that proved to be an exercise in futility.
Not sure if it was forteManager, or just the basic drivers for this monitor, but for the longest time the monitor would occassionally freeze up my computer after a long period of inactivity. I would have to hard reboot my PC.
I realize this model number has been discontinued, but if LG have carried over much of the same functionality and UI features in their current models, you may want to thoroughly test these aspects on the demo unit to ensure you completely understand them and are completely enamored with them.

I bought this for myself last year for a birthday present and it has exceeded my expectations. I have always liked LG products.

This monitor was a great value for money. The screen is clear, sharp and provides a great monitor for my desktop. The only draw back on this monitor is the buttons to adjust the properties. They are hard to navigate and to see for someone who's eyesight is not at peak condition. But once you get the settings right- the picture is great the colour is wonderful. I would have no problems telling people to buy this monitor.

I bought this montior on sale through NewEgg - great decision! The monitor's design and appearance is stunning and the picture quality is superb!
I was attracted to this monitor due to the size, resolution, HDMI with and the 2MS 1080P.
My only "gripe" is the touch sensitive controls... they are cool, but sometimes hard to navigate in low-light unless you memorize them. Sometimes I have to touch the monitor 2-3 times to get the power sensor to trip... this is a very minor hassle (hence my lower ease of use score) but did not affect my overall 5-star rating.
