I needed to upgrade the monitor on my computer. I knew I wanted something much bigger than the 15″ CRT monstrosity I had been using for years, but when I upgraded my computer, I couldn’t afford a new monitor. I found the LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor at Best Buy for $229.99. It came with the power cable, and the 15 pin D-sub cable, but I had a DVI cable that I planned to use to connect the monitor to my computer.
The LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor is thin enough to mount on the wall, but is also small enough to not take up much space on my desk. It definitely takes up a lot less space than the old monitor.
I was amazed at the sharpness of the picture, when I got it home, and connected the LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor to the computer. It has 1920 x 1080 maximum resolution, which gives me a lot more real estate on the screen than I have had access to before. It also has 50000:1 digital fine contrast ratio. This gives the LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor a high number of shades between black and white
Something I was not aware of until I went looking for a new monitor that the LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor is a 1080p High Definition monitor. This means I can watch HD movies on my monitor.
If I watch video clips in full screen, I can select Cinema Mode on the LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor which gets rid of those blocky sections that you see in other monitors. The LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor also has an auto brightness sensor, which measures the surrounding light, and then signals the backlight, and creates optimal brightness to help reduce eye strain.
The LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor also has Live Sensor. This is a proximity sensor that senses hands coming near the monitor, and turns it on. This is an energy saving feature that can extend the life of the monitor. The LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor is naturally Energy Star Compliant.
You can set a Time Control on the LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor to signal you to take a break at intervals you set up. The power light will blink to let you know to move. This is another way to avoid eye strain.
The connections available on the LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor are 15Pin D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI.
I was greatly impressed with the LG 23″ Widescreen LCD Monitor. My videos look better, and game graphics are brighter and look better. This was a good bargain.
