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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brain163 Still overcoming first impressions
Bought the monitor after surveying the market for some 12 months. Being an LG product, I was confident of it being an excellent balance of quality, features and price.
However - after using the monitor for 4 days, it simply stopped working - totally blank screen. As this was purchased as an 'eye-saving' accessory to my work laptop, this was very frustrating! A call to the support line had them saying I should simply return to the place of purchase for an immediate replacement. I can honestly say I was a little nervous about getting a straight replacement - will the exact same thing happen again??
In the end, I did get it replaced - and so far (2 months later), it is still working fine.
Picture is excellent, performance is great.

I had intended to buy only the 22 or 23 inch, but the 24 inch was on sale and cheaper than the other 2 smaller one. I love the size. The colors are great and was so simply to install. I love the large 24" screen, especially the non-shiny surface so I don't get the awful reflections of some of the other monitors out there.
Great value for the money!
