LG Flatron L226WTQ-BF

 

The Flatron L226WTQ-BF is a stylish 22-inch widescreen monitor that gives a sharp picture with excellent color. It excels at displaying moving images, whether in movies or gaming.

Fast pixel response. Good color quality and text readability. HDCP-compliant.

Weak light-grayscale performance. No additional multimedia ports. DVI cable not included.

LG L226WTQ-BF

 

If you work out of your home, once the workday is done you're free to kick back and watch a DVD or get in a few rounds of gaming on the same computer you were just using to plot spreadsheets. But unless you have a monitor that can handle moving images...

Fast pixel response. Good color quality and text readability. HDCP-compliant

Weak light-grayscale performance. No additional multimedia ports. DVI cable not included

The LG Flatron L226WTQ-BF delivers a very sharp picture, excellent color quality, and a lightning-fast pixel response, but its handling of light-gray shading is mediocre at best.

LG L226WTQ LCD monitor has high contrast ratio

 

LG has just released its L226WTQ LCD monitor that claims to be the first of its kind to feature a 5,000 to 1 contrast ratio, although most folks know that such a criteria is often the least reliable specification where screen technology is concerned....

LG Flatron L226WTQ-BF

 

The LG Flatron L226WTQ-BF isn't an extravagant 22in widescreen monitor, but it does sport a thin bezel and a flashy stand. It lacks USB ports and its ...

Fast response time, serviceable image quality for everyday tasks

Some discolouration was noticeable in the greyscale

For everyday tasks, this Flatron is well-suited. It doesn't produce a perfect image, but it does a serviceable job of displaying images and movies.

LG Flatron L226WTQ 22in flat-panel monitor

 

The 22in LG Flatron L226WTQ flat-panel monitor has a 2ms response rate and 5,000:1 contrast ratiio that produce beautifully smooth images.

LG hasn't spent any money providing advanced features such as Pivot or a height-adjustable stand, but this means the LG Flatron L226WTQ has some sensational specifications without insisting on costing an excessive amount. Indeed, given the glorious...

LG L226WTQ-PF LCD Review

 

If you are looking for a cost affective 22" LCD screen for gaming you could do worse than by buying an LG L226WTQ Piano Black version - which is essentially ...

A great 22" LCD screen that has superb blacks for watching movies and a fast 2ms for games. It lacks speakers and a HDMI port but for under £170 it still presents great value for money considering the quality on offer.

Review: LG Flatron L226WTQ monitor | Absolute Gadget

 

To be honest, when it comes to PC monitors, size is everything. OK, maybe not everything there are other things to consider. For example will the monitor be any good for big spreadsheets or will it be any good for playing Crysis? Whatever you want, LG...

Overall, for the money (around £180 plus VAT) you can't go far wrong with this beauty

Excellent Monitor

 

I use this as a dual monitor setup for editing video, which works perfect. The size is more than large enough for this type of work. For the price you will not find many monitors that will beat the quality of this product.

This monitor is fantasticr. It has a really good picture quality. There are no dead pixels. The digital connection really adds to the picture quality. The vertical tilt works nice. The stand is stable, so there is no shacking in the monitor

Need to buy a DVI cable. The base does not a swivel, but can be move quite easily

Product Specifications

The L226WU connects to your PC using the simple USB interface, and subsequent monitors can connect to each other by USB in a daisy chain style, allowing up to 6 monitors to be connected from one PC port, without the need for extra video cards. Monitors are detected automatically, and can be positioned individually to your liking with height adjust and pivot capabilities. This is the perfect solution for multi-monitor applications where increased screen real estate is paramount. It uses DAFI technology which includes a RCM (Real Color Management) function which allows monitor to display the most vivid and natural color available on an LCD. Also it comes complete with an ACE (Adaptive Color and Contrast Enhancement) function that enhances brightness and contrast. The technology is ideal for watching videos or displaying high quality photos. LG's wide format series comes with an exceptionally quick response time at 2ms. At this speed, even the most intense of actions remains crisp and clear with less ghosting than ever before. In particular, when users play video games and watch motion pictures, LG's wide format series, with its exceptional response time, comes into its own.
