LG Flatron W2486L review


The Samsung SyncMaster XL2370 is currently the reigning king of LED monitors. Compared with the LG Flatron W2486L, the SyncMaster offers better performance, lighter weight, and a thinner design. Granted, the W2486L comes with a VGA port and two HDMI...

The LG Flatron W2486L offers great performance in games and has one of the thinnest designs we've seen of any size.

The LG Flatron W2486L lacks ergonomic features, has a low brightness level, and its color reproduction looks dull compared with its competitors.

The LG Flatron W2486L is a great LED-backlit monitor that few will choose over its main competitor.

LG W2486L


The LG W2486L is a prime example as one of the best monitors on the market today.

The LED backlit display on the 23-inch widescreen makes viewing much easier

The touch controls on the monitor are responsive or not at all

We're pretty impressed with the LG W2486L monitor in just about every regard. Most importantly, its image reproduction is superb if a bit less bright than we've seen with other LED displays. We're particularly fond of its ambient light sensing prowess....

LG W2286L review


Can LG's 22" LED backlit monitor inject some life into the old TN panel design?

LED backlight ; Enhanced colour accuracy

Relatively low resolution ; Too pricey for a 22 incher

LED tech makes for an intriguing alternative. But ultimately this is too flawed and pricey

LG Flatron W2486L review


With the advent of LED backlighting comes the obsession with creating the thinnest possible monitor. LG claims the W2486L is the world's thinnest 24in PC monitor, but it's a dubious honour.

Poor image quality, frustrating touch-sensitive controls and a high price mean this is one LED monitor to avoid

LG Flatron W2486L 24″ LED-Backlit LCD Monitor Review


The W2486L LED monitor also has the added benefit of reduced power consumption over traditional LCD screens and because it is more energy efficient, it also runs much cooler, so as well as wasting less energy, the components are no doubt being put...

LG W2486L


It has been a fantastic and reliable long term monitor for my gaming uses, but as noted in the cons, the software is borderline unusable. I was able to perfect the color balance using the nVidea graphics card software instead. Egg loss there.

Bright ; Clear ; Fast response time ; Nice form ; Good build quality ; Good price

Terrible software ; Harder to calibrate than it should be

Best monitor I've ever bought


I don't know what to say except I love this monitor. The colors are beautiful compared to my older monitor and I use this also for my PS3 and Xbox360

The glossy look attracts dust like crazy and the touch buttons are annoying. Not much room to adjust the screen
