LG Flatron IPS231P review

 

The LG IPS231 was the big surprise of the test – a 23in monitor with superb colour reproduction that was surprisingly cheap

Brilliant value; high-end panel features at low cost such as LED backlit panel built on IPS technology

Skimps on display sockets

As a bare bones office unit, the Flatron makes a fine choice and really impresses. If all you anticipate needing is DVI connectivity, it’s a no-frills monitor that’s priced brilliantly and delivers a high-quality picture.

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

Inaccurate description on website.

 

I would've given 5-star if the size detail was accurate... even at the higher price. I did not call Newegg nor LG prior to ordering. Previous experience has taught me that the phone advisor just reads the same product description that's found online....

Excellent picture quality ; Adjustable height ; Matte bezel. Very thin and uniform all around ; Relatively samll footprint

1. the actual witdth is 21.5" and not 20.23" - I checked the LG website and every document on Newegg (including the official pdf) before ordering this monitor. it was ~ $40 more than others in this level but I ordered because the advertised width was...

Excellent Intro Designing Display

 

Will be buying another 2 of these for gaming and more design work.

Wide Viewing Angle ; 1080p Content Plays Flawless ; No Dead Pixels ; Plenty of Screen Real Estate to work on any Photo / Video Editing ; Beautifully Designed Shell

Movement, but I initially wanted to set this up as a Tri-Monitor Setup on a Mutli-Screen Stand. But, no eggs needed to be removed for that

Very nice!

 

Dynamic backlighting does not appear to have any effect unless the screen is almost 100% black. It can be disabled completely by holding the rightmost settings button (not power button) for five seconds. Default brightness is eye-searing. Turn it...

Nice, professional-looking frame, without any glossy 'modern' styling touches ; Matte-finish screen doesn't show reflections ; Minimal ghosting ; Excellent viewing angles (hooray IPS!) ; Decent color - despite being IPS, it's only a 6-bit panel so...

Rotating base is extremely unstable. If you flip the monitor over and remove the screw holding the turntable, and throw the turntable away, you'll be left with something much more stable ; Blue power LED always blinks during standby. It can be...

Great monitor

 

For those saying the stand is flimsy, all you have to do is remove the "swivel" plate from the bottom, so the monitor can sit on the actual base, not that flimsy spinner. and all is well.

Very good color, and great viewing angle, once calibrated it is a great photo monitor. Got it from a local dealer for 180 plus tax

speakers are dreadful, no hdmi, no usb ports

Excellent monitor

 

This is one of the best monitors in it's price range. Unlike TN panels, the colors and brightness are uniform across the screen when viewed from any distance and color saturation is stable when brightness is adjusted up and down. One downside with IPS...

Great balance of price and features. Colors are excellent, contrast is on par with IPS panels in general and viewing angles are excellent

Slight uneveness in back lighting which is only noticable when the display is black. After removing the swivel disk from the base, the stand is solid on my desk. A monitor this light doesn't need a swivel base
