The LG W2363D(-PF)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have 2 Sapphire 6950 Toxics, both unlocked to 6970's, in CF.

I will be playing games like BF3, Skyrim, Batman Arkham City and AC Revelations. I won't use the monitor or computer for anything but games and some web browsing (I have my laptop for work).

I found a LG W2363D-PF for $300(open box, only used for several hours on ebay, 100% positive so I don't think there would be anything wrong with it). Can anyone tell me anything about this monitor? Is it worth getting?

EDIT

I bought the LG, see my post below. I heard(forum search) this monitor has horrible image quality from the start, and even after calibration it is decent at best. Anyone have this monitor and can explain the picture quality to me? That would be extremely helpful!

That LG is the most responsive of the 120hz monitors: has the least input lag. It is somewhat lacking in the contrast department, though. No 120hz monitor will compare to an IPS, in terms of color accuracy, so don't bother even comparing. However, the new samsungs are pretty good in that respect. But, since you're on a budget, that LG will do you pretty good. Any other 120hz monitor (that is not a samsung) will not be any better than that.

After doing some research, the only problem I see with this monitor is some of these monitors develop a blue/green tint over time, I'm not sure what this is from, but seeing how much of a deal this is, I bought right away. Now since it's on ebay, I'm not sure if it came with a warranty. Buying closed eyes ftl eek.gif

Anyone have this monitor wanna chime in?

Ah crap, I might've made the wrong purchase. A lot of people are saying that the picture quality needs calibration, and even after that the color reproduction is decent. Someone went even so far to say that it's the 120hz monitor with the worst image quality.

Of course image quality is subjective and I won't know until I see the monitor in action, but does anyone have this monitor?? I hope I didn't buy the wrong monitor, I like good color

I'm sure it does not have the worst color accuracy of the 120hz TN's. That title belongs to my beloved xl2410t. However, i'm afraid you won't ever be happy with any TN's color accuracy. If they were any good, given the 120hz advantage, noone would be buying IPS over this. Responsiveness and smoothness vs image quality, really.

I'm sure you'll learn to live with it.

I think I'll still like it because I've never had anything better. All these years I've been using this LCD HP monitor I bought with my desktop in 2008. I just mean I hope it isn't unbearably inaccurate. I'm not savvy with monitors at all

Well here's my monitor, not sure of how different the LG will be from this:

Well, you'll definitely notice a difference, since the LG is TN and matte. But don't worry too much; just think of it as a super smooth replacement till OLED gets here.

Either LG are engaged in the unethical practise of forum spamming, or someone is cultivating a future spam account. All 6 of monitorgeeks posts have made little sense and provided a link to the lg.com website.
