"A quality widescreen monitor with full 1080 support"

If your in the market for a new monitor like I was about 12 months ago, then you really owe it to yourself to check out the LG Flatron W2261VP.

It's a high resolution, true 16:9 widescreen HD monitor for your PC. Basically it does what it says on the tin. There are a lot of monitors that tell you that they are just what your looking for, but this really is. I know I sound like an LG fan-boy but I just really like this monitor. When other people see it they comment on how sleek it looks and how clear the images are.

So what are those all-important specifications you need to know about?

The technical bit:

22" monitor
2ms Response Time
50000:1 Dynamic Digital Fine Contrast Ratio
HDMI Connector
16:9 Aspect Ratio
4:3 In Wide Support (for viewing things not ment for widescreen)
Full HD Monitor

The main things that I use my PC for are playing games, surfing the internet and working with MS Office. This works perfectly with all of them.

I experience NO "ghosting" with fast moving images thanks to the fast 2ms response time. My DVD's and iTunes HD videos look absolutely jaw dropping thanks to the 1080 HD goodness and true 16:9 support. It's also perfectly suited to the new Windows 7 snap feature, I can quite happily snap 2 documents to either side of the screen for comparison. This also works well with internet browsers and is all thanks to the full widescreen support.

Who should buy this monitor? Anybody who wants a quality bit of kit for under £150. The only concern that I had when buying this monitor was that it wouldn't cope with fast FPS video games. I didn't need to worry, the monitor has dealt with every variety of game that I have thrown its way. I couldn't be happier.

Outstanding bit of kit.


Conclusion:

This is the best monitor that I have ever owned (and my last one was a Sony). Its high resolution display is clean and crisp. It's excellent for working as everything is vibrant and clear, its also amazing for playing the latest games. I can't recommend this monitor enough, it really is spot-on.

Outstanding value for money.

    What can I say, it's a quality bit of kit. PC monitors in tins, now there's a thought ;p

    I have an LG monitor, though not this model. I think their stuff is generally pretty good.
