One of the better monitors I’ve ever used was an LG. Today, I will be reviewing a product: the LG 26-inch wide-screen flat-panel LCD monitor, which I used as a gaming monitor for quite some time. I will begin the product review with a user rating system, which I’ve derived from personal experience and the specifications of the monitor. Next, I will provide the readers with the specifications, dimensions, and features of the monitor, which come directly from the LG monitor’s user manual. Finally, I will provide the readers with my final thoughts and an estimated price range, allowing the user to be completely prepared before even taking one step in the electronics store to purchase this product.
User Friendly: 5/5
The LG 26-inch wide-screen Flat-panel LCD monitor provides a user with a three year warranty on parts and labor, allowing a user to feel completely secure with their purchase before walking out of the store. It has a height of 18.2-inch with stand (16.3″ without). The monitor width is 23.7 inches. The LG monitor depth is 10.6″ with stand (3.2″ without). The total weight of the LG monitor is 21.4 lbs. with stand (15 lbs. without). The screen size on this monitor is 26-inches, when measured diagonally. It has a viewable screen size of 26-inches as well, which is more than some other monitors can say. It has a maximum resolution of 1920×1200 with an aspect ratio of 16:10. The response time is 5 ms and the brightness is 300 cd/m. The contrast ratio of this monitor is 5000:1. The monitor is flat display, which provides the user with a light weight and thin monitor. The compatibility is only for the PC; since I only use a PC I can say that this is not a problem for me but please take this into consideration before buying this monitor. The monitor also has an antiglare coating, which greatly reduces the glare produced from light sources. From personal experience I can say that this is defiantly one of the better features to have in a monitor. It can greatly reduce your headache. The power consumption of the unit is 110W, which also must be noted. The monitor is ENERGY STAR Qualified, meaning you will save a lot of money in the long run with electrical payments.
This is one of the better monitors I have reviewed. Everything on this monitor marks off the charts, except for the size, which is expected. Everything on this monitor is amazing. LG thought of everything before putting it together: anti glare, warranty, screen size, weight, power consumption. It is defiantly one of the better purchases you can make with a monitor and for the slightly cheaper price you get equal quality.
Go into the store expecting to pay approximately $580.
