Product Alert: IPS (In-Plane-Switching) is a technology for LCD displays that offers users wider viewing angles and bolder colors by allowing more light to pass through the panel.

What's special about this LG IPS231P monitor is its e-IPS technology and yet the price is still the same as the conventional TN type monitors.

It's awful to edit photos on a a conventional TN based monitor. The color and contrast shift when my head moves a couple inches from right to left, and I could never be sure what the image really looks like. It's especially worse when viewing a photo on a larger screen, since the corners look darker and warmer than the middle of the screen. IPS type monitor can fix this viewing angle problem, but I couldn't afford the cost that usually runs double to triple the conventional TN monitor price. That's why I had been using the old humongous CRT monitor that took up half of my desk. Everybody laughed when they saw that beast.

Within the last year, several makers started producing cheaper IPS monitors, using e-IPS, with the "e" probably stands for "economy". This monitor has the same advantage as true IPS, meaning the color and contrast don't shift depending on viewing angle. The cheap price comes with a couple of set backs, compared to true IPS:

1. The wide angle isn't as wide as true IPS. But it's still much better than TN. I can see a huge difference between the TN monitor at my office and the IPS231P monitor in this test: [...] (replace the underscore with the dot to see the page)

2. The color depth isn't true 8-bit. It's actually 6-bit that's extended to 8-bit. While I can see all the color shades here www_lagom_nl/lcd-test/contrast.php, the gradient test www_lagom_nl/lcd-test/gradient.php shows some minor banding.

If you're looking for vibrant colors, this monitor isn't it. Vibrant color is not the same as true colors.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you are looking for a 23" monitor, I highly recommend the LG IPS231P-BN 23-Inch Widescreen LED LCD Pivoting Monitor with IPS Panel. Text is clear and sharp; colors are vivid and very true. As a more mature individual, whose eyesight isn't quite what it used to be, I found that it was not easy to read online information on my old 17-inch monitor. After two months of using this monitor, I will be recommending it to others who may be looking to upgrade to an HD monitor! I really like the larger screen size on this LG monitor.

The LG IPS231P-BN 23-Inch Widescreen LED LCD Pivoting Monitor with IPS Panel comes with easy-to-understand installation directions; hook-up was simple and quick. The factory settings were excellent for reading, shopping, and viewing photos. Since I do not do photo editing, I cannot compare this monitor to others which professionals or serious hobbyists may recommend. I did play a family video shot on a Sony camcorder and found that it was clear, easy to see, and that there was no lag as the video moved from frame to frame. The monitor does not have a USB port - if you need one, you may want to explore other options.

I particularly like the matte finish on the monitor's screen as I use it in a room which has overhead lighting. A glossy screen tends to have glare spots. However, others who prefer a glossy screen or are using the monitor where overhead lighting is not a factor may have different opinions. The clarity of print on the screen is excellent. Contrast is very good and adjusting for different settings is simple; one only needs to use the buttons at the lower right-hand edge of the monitor's frame. Color reproduction is outstanding! I did not need to tweak the color; it was very true-to-life.

I purchased and tested a Viewsonic VX2453MH for one week and returned it because of poor washed out colors and low sharpness on text. I tried fiddling about with all the color & contrast settings and even used settings recommended by someone on Amazon who had calibrated it. I replaced it with the LG IPS 231P-BN and am very happy with the colors and sharpness of text. I am using a $7 HDMI to DVI-D adapter and driving the monitor off my Dell XPS-15 Lap top fitted with a 1 GB Nvidia card. The colors are vibrant, bright,natural and text is very sharp. The monitor worked perfectly out of the box without the need for any adjustments.
I highly recommend this monitor.

I ordered a LG IPS231V-PN but actually got LG IPS231p-BN. I contacted customer service and they said that it was most likely a shipping mistake. They again resent another monitor and again it was a LG IPS231p-BN. From what I can tell the only difference is that the LG IPS231p-BN does not support HDMI inputs. After doing some more research I am starting to believe that a LG IPS231V-PN does not even exist (it is not even mentioned on LG's website). LG IPS231p-BN is a really good monitor, but if you must have HDMI, then be cautious about about getting a LG IPS231p-BN instead of a LG IPS231V-PN. When you get the box see the model thats listed in small print near the barcode.

Just received this monitor, here are my thoughts:

Pros:
1) Fantastic color out of the box with default settings and Windows7 generic driver
2) Excellent detail with text; there were a couple of reviews on Amazon saying the text was blurry - I have no idea what they were talking about. Crystal-clear, sharp text with my model (default sharpness of 5 out of 10).
3) IPS panel makes for great viewing angles, no darkening at all when you move around
4) Calibrated with Spder3 Elite to 6500K, 2.2 Gamma, .35 BlkPt, 120 WhtPt - looks terrific
5) Photos' colors are accurate and detail is excellent
6) Videos and Blu-Rays look great, maybe not quite the caliber of a TN panel, but very, very close. Games would probably display just fine depending on your VGA.
7) If you don't have a pro calibration system, there are 4 presets as well as individual controls.
8) 1080 has a lower profile than 1200, wide screen, great for movies

Cons:
1) Not the sturdiest stand but sufficient because the monitor is lightweight
2) Could not get supplied driver to install off of CD
3) If you're used to working on a 24" to 30" monitor, this one will look small; but coming up from 17" to 21", it will look huge
4) Probably not suitable for pro or semi-pro use

LG advertises this as the "Best entry level photo editing monitor" and I'd have to agree. I paid $245 with free shipping on Amazon; to move up to an HP or Dell 23"IPS-panel, I'd have to spend about $150 more than I did. If you were on a budget and photography is your avid hobby, I would most definitely recommend this monitor. I can't see any weaknesses for basic photo-editing. I would recommend a calibration system if you are planning to print a lot of your work.

Dollar for value this is a great deal.

Hope this helps anyone looking for a very affordable IPS-panel monitor.
