I have had the LG Flatron L1510S for around 6 months now and use it on a daily basis at work. I use it for writing documents and also surfing the net and playing games and of course writing Ciao! reviews in my lunch breaks!
The monitor itself is a good looker in my opinion. It has a silver frame which is about an inch wide the whole way round the screen and the screen area measures roughly 37 cm diagonally and about 14 inches across the bottom of it. I have a standard bulky monitor at home which is a 17 inch screen and the LG1510S really doesn't seem that much smaller. Perhaps because on standard old style monitors the packaging around the screen is generally wider.
EASE OF USE
The monitor is attached to the base using a swivel which enables you to arrange the monitor at the optimum eye level for you to avoid any any health and safety issues. Also great if you don't want all your colleagues seeing what you're doing! It is also fairly lightweight and easy to transport as it is not bulky at all. This is a clear advantage if you are looking to pick up this monitor yourself from a shop as it will not be in a huge box that will not fit in your everyday car.
I unfortunately can not comment on the price, but from the best prices that you find advertised on Ciao! I would certainly say this monitor provides value for money. It looks smart and stylish and I would love to have one at home. It doesn't look specifically "officey" so would be fine in the family home.
I would recommend this model and have not experienced any problem with it to date. None of my colleagues who also use the same model have experienced any problems either and I think that this is a monitor which looks great and has all the standard features of varying brightness, colour and contrast. These are all changed manually by pressing a neat silver button on the front of the monitor. I have not noticed any blurring whilst playing games on this monitor and it is possible that the effects that other ciao! reviewers have experienced is down to the speed of their machine.
