Reasonably Priced

One person who bought this PC monitor concluded that it was good value for money. Expert website Uk.hardware.info wrote in their review of the LG IPS231P “Either you could get an affordable screen with a TN panel, or an extremely expensive yet superior one with IPS panel”.

Chart

LED Display Type

Alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available which you might want to consider include the S27A850[pl_1388314_price], or the S32D850T[pl_2346019_price] both from Samsung which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The IPS231P has a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the IPS231P do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama XB2483HSU[plb_1611035_price], and the NEC MultiSync EA244WMI[plb_1581225_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

The IPS231P has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle (178 degrees) compared to most of the other PC screens that have been around for more than two years. The narrowest vertical viewing angle of medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the IPS231P is 50° and the widest is 180°.

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Philips 231C5[plb_1599727_price], or the Asus MK241[plb_2332619_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit
