Customer Reviews

The picture quality is excellent!
Niles Benghauser
Once I plugged my speaker system into the convenient side-located headphone jack the blue ray concert disk I was playing became pretty awesome.

Worked well too using a DVI-D to HDMI adaptor as a second monitor for my desktop computer.

I purchased this item and delivery was fast from California... The items box is very small and well packaged. I save all my item boxes for at least a year, in case I need to sell or ship an item back.

I read the 4 previous reviews that were here prior to purchasing this item, so I knew its faults like weak speaker output. But I wanted the item for my bedroom TV viewing (where i use low volume or headphones), and also to use it as a Computer Monitor for my 2nd desktop computer. This way I can switch from the HDTV over to the monitor (at HD quality 1920x1200 coming from a connected HD4770 - HD quality computer video card), then connect to HULU online and catch up on my missed TV episodes, or scan the web, or play video games. This thing is just great. I've got another HDTV in the living room and the ATSC tuner in this thing picks up more channels that any other HD tuner that I used, whether it be in an HDTV or an HD tuner card for the computer (both internal & external - and I've went through about all of them).

The main thing for me is picture quality... and this thing has it. It is just GREAT! It blows away my other HD set in the living room. Also the specs were not really covered properly by either amazon or the manufacture on its website. It says it only has an ATSC tuner, but it has 3 tuners. It will collect HD, QAM, and NTSC, but it only has 1 catv input (that's always the trouble with these things, never enough of something). I guess you could connect this thing into a dual-tuner system, like a TIVO HD tuner and have it made. But it does have a lot of other connections on the rear for inputs, and I manage with that.

One must be mindful of the fact that the M237WD-PM is a dual-use monitor: computer and HDTV. It appears to me that even "professional" reviewers on the Internet forget that very important fact and are, as a consequence, at once, inappropriately critical of some of the monitor's features and performance while expecting the monitor to perform in a manner beyond the scope of its design. The second important fact that appears to elude reviewers is that, at 23 inches, the monitor is a so-called kitchen/bedroom or personal monitor.

Take for instance a critique here that notes the protruding connector at the base of the screen, which renders an unattractive image when the monitor is hung on a wall. Who hangs a computer monitor on a wall? If one desires a 23-inch HDTV - to hang on a wall - I would suggest a dedicated unit, which is likely to be less expensive and have fewer internal components/circuits subject to failure.

Consider too, the universal complaint that focuses on the quantity and quality of the sound. As a dual use monitor, my M237WD-PM is setting atop my desk, next to my dedicated computer monitor (LG L227WTG), approximately 26 inches from my face. At that distance, how much volume does one need? One can also avail oneself of headphones if need be. In response to the critique that the monitor does not contain any audio output jacks (apart from the headphone jack), few televisions, as a matter of design, have audio outputs of any consequence, if at all. Why not? Because they are not designed to incorporate the speakers, pre-amps/amps necessary to push audio to ears whose locus is the back row of a theater. That task is relegated to receivers. If one requires such audio, one simply splits off the audio from the antenna/cable leads and routes it accordingly.

Just bought this set at amazon.
Wow I'm impressed! Very crisp image, clear menus, lots of inputs, just enough sound quality and great looks.

Works wonderful with my netbook using the PC connection. Full 1920x1080 instantly!
Worked well too using a DVI-D to HDMI adaptor as a second monitor for my desktop computer. It has the DVI-D input but I currently don't have the cable.

Image is outstanding... Deep blacks and intense whites. It's on par to my 32" XBR6 Sony LCD. I'm very happy to have chosen this set instead a plain LCD monitor I wanted. It worth the extra $100.

As a TV using cable input, digital channels look great and regular channels look very good.

Still need to check a Full HDMI video source (not a PC).

I bought this strictly to use as a TV in my bedroom to replace my old 20" Toshiba set.
First of all you can't buy any regular TV set, (even an LG) that comes with a 3yr. mfg. warranty.
The picture is impressive, it's better than all the 22"-24" HDTV - HDTV/Monitor sets I checked out*.
Initially I found the sound to be "tinny" as some people have commented on.
After trying several different audio settings I find this setting the most pleasing to my ears:
Menu>Audio:
Auto Volume:On
Sound Mode:Cinema(User)
SRS TruSurround XT:Off
Treble=2
Bass=99
I also read a review where the person complained that the blue power indicator was distracting.
It can be turned off:
Menu>Options>Power Indicator: Off
The light will only go on for a few seconds when you turn the set on.
