Are LG E2370V-BF and IPS236V-PN worth buying even with their flaws?

post #1 of 5

Hello,

I'm deciding between LG E2370V-BF and LG IPS236V-PN or alternatively Dell U2311H. From what I have read both LG monitors are pretty decent all-rounders (in their price segment of course) and they have IPS panels... but unfortunately they seem to suffer from a few stupid flaws and especially bad stands. I don't even mind ergonomics like height adjustment as it is not so important for me but rather a fact that they are not stable enough.

Problem 1
I have seen the IPS236V-PN in a local store and in fact it was wobbling a lot after I pushed it. But then again, my current 19" replacement monitor is also wobbling after a punch and I didn't even notice it before. So, is it any problem in a daily use of IPS236V-PN?

I read somewhere that the stand in E2370V-BF is a bit better, however also in this case people were complaining. So I would ask the same, is it really a problem during work?

Or maybe somebody worked with both of these models and could share experience?

Problem 2
In case of E2370V-BF I saw an additional complain in other thread here. Few people pointed out that this monitor tends to "auto-power off" itself when the scene is all black and it could happen while watching movies. Of course there is an "Auto-Bright" feature but as far as I understood it seems to be something different. But I couldn't find anything about it in specification or manual. Did anybody experience that and could explain me how that works? Maybe it works with multiple monitor configurations only? If that is bad and annoying it could be a deal breaker... or maybe it is actually a cool feature.

I'm asking because they seems to be good panels, maybe even a bit better than Dell U2311H, but if stands or "auto power off" feature are too problematic I would rather go with Dell or some of the 24" TNs.

ips236v is too slow and have ridicolous contrast ratio around 500:1 ninja.gif
LG E2370v is good but U2311h is better in all sectors, u23 is the best 16:9 IPS monitor. cool.gif

the only disadvantage of ultrasharp can be the noising over 30 value to brightness because is not LED.

All 3 monitors have hard ag coating than TN monitors.

Thank you a lot for the feedback.

Good to know. I saw IPS236V coating and I didn't mind it, so it shouldn't be an issue for me no matter what will I take. I would still prefer more neutral coating but this wasn't so bad and I would always chose AG over heavy glare coating.

I was thinking about LG mainly from 2 reasons. LED backlight (which at the end I'm not sure if it's so important) and responsiveness. I will use this monitor at home and that means in my case programming + a bit of 3D + a bit of photo processing + a bit of games (Team Fortress 2 for instance) and movies for relax. And because of the games I was thinking about LG as I read that it is more responsive and better in terms of ghosting. I'm not so heavy player but I do play sometimes racing or FPS games.

Do you think that U2311H is good enough in games and there is no big difference between U2311H and E2370V in terms of ghosting. If yes then taking into account other aspects Dell might be really a better choice?

And did you actually notice any problems with stand or "auto-power off" feature in E2370V?

i think that asus u2311 is faster or same to lg.
5-6-8ms is not import, there are the benchmark, and the dell is little highter than the best 2ms monitors.

LED backlight have only 2 advantage, when u turn on the monitorthe brightness is quick ready on led, in ccft backlight is possible that u must wain some seconds and over a specific value there is a particular noising, but this is not much important.

LED cause backlight bleeding, in corners of panel.

Quality of image is not advantaged to LED, never, nothing.

So if there is no much difference in terms of ghosting and you say that U2311H is almost as good as 2ms monitors than maybe it will be a better choice. Anyway friend of mine is also advertising Dell, so I might go with it. At least I won't have to worry about problems with stand.
