Terrible Picture Viewing Angle
We bought this monitor with high hopes, but it turned out reading on this Monitor was extremely stressful on the eyes. Also, the viewing angle reminds me of old LCD monitors built in the 90's, because if you view off the side even a little, the picture quality drastically is reduced. Its as though there is a silver haze over the screen. I thought it was only this monitor in particular, but with some research I have found that many people comment on this. If you put this beside another monitor, even my old LG from 2006, the difference is day...and night. We tried all settings and I am a computer technician so I have worked with many monitors in the past. The only thing I can think is that LG shipped out the cheapest screen possible. It says it's build in 2019, but the quality is more akin to monitors of the late 90's. It is terrible and I am a big LG fan. I hope this is not what we can expect from LG in the future.

Excellent value. Colours and contrast are good. This is the best monitor I've owned to date. Using it as office monitor, so cannot comment on suitability for gaming. Only complaint is that the base of the stand protrudes a bit too far into the desk area, front ways. I managed to modify the fitting to reverse it, but it required cutting a bit of the plastic out of the column. Otherwise, very happy. Would recommend.

Reading text a bad experience
I bought this monitor a few weeks back from Computer Alliance to replace my ancient heavy as hell old HP 14 inch monitor (probably at least 15 years old). First sight the LG was ns nice, 22 inches, lightweight, HDMI port as well as VGA, and a nice bright screen. Well, I'm afraid it didn't last. Trying to read black and white text on it was painful. Text tended to be light and screen shiny (seems almost reflective), making reading a bad experience. Got out the old HP again, displayed exactly the same text on it and difference was dramatic. The...HP has a matte non-shiny surface so the dark text contrasts nicely. I tired to adjust the LG settings but none of the options made any real difference. This monitor may be OK for movies or gaming - can't say as I don't use it for that - but for reading text it is terrible - in fact unusable. It's now stored in my garage and I'm still with my ancient HP monitor. Oh, and the HP is height and tilt adjustable, and the LG only tilts; you can't adjust the height. All in all a very bad buy.
