Lenovo ThinkVision L201p 20-inch LCD reviewed


What does $800 get you from Lenovo these days? Turns out, on the display front at least, it'll get you a 20-inch 1600x1200 LCD that can pivot 90 degrees and that's about it. Want speakers or extra USB ports? Not here. Want software to rotate the image...

Lenovo ThinkVision L201p review


The LCDs formerly known as IBM? Though the 20-inch Lenovo ThinkVision L201P is admirable for its adjustability and easily navigable onscreen menu, the bland design is screaming for an update, and at $649, it's too expensive for its basic set of...

High degree of adjustability; evenly lit screen; streak-free performance when displaying moving images; dedicated button for swapping between digital and analog signals.

More expensive than similar LCDs; outdated design; lacks cable management system.

The 20-inch Lenovo ThinkVision L201P offers better-than-average performance and excellent ergonomic flexibility, but it's more expensive than similarly equipped business displays.

Lenovo ThinkVision L201p


The Lenovo ThinkVision L201p is a good performer but short on features.

Good image quality and viewing-angle performance. Highly adjustable stand.

Expensive. Lacks cable-management device. Pivot software not included.

Lenovo Review


This monitor crawls as 16ms, which is just not fast enough for most games and video. There was a time when even 20ms was considered fast, but now there are monitors out there with a response time of less than 5ms

Consumer review (



You can see individual dots, no fuzziness at all. I have this monitor at work and bought one for home although it is about $150 more than the others in this range. Well worth it. Excellent. Love the fine quality of the image.
