5 Reasons For

Nice Design

One person who bought it considered that it was a good design. Pcmag-Mideast.com scored the product 70 out of 100 and said “Great design, small foot print, colour options” in their review. One LG W2230S owner wrote in their reviews that it was good looking. Pocket-Lint.com mentioned seven years ago “Monitors are pretty boring things.”.

Good Picture Quality

A number of LG W2230S owners who purchased it reckoned that it had good colour saturation. Expert review site Digitalversus.com said “Choice of Colours If you're interested in this monitor” in their review of the LG W2230S. Pcmag-Mideast.com said in their review “The cool colours and the full HD support of the W2230S would gain a few fans” and gave the product a rating of 70 out of 100.

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all LG PC monitors and also specifically for LG medium monitors and found that in both cases LG had good reviews compared to other brands.

Quite Fast Response Time

Medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years have response times of between 1ms and 40ms. At only 5 milliseconds, the LG W2230S has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other PC screens of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Light

Across all the medium monitors that were released more than two years ago the weights range from 3g to 39kg. With a weight of only 2.9 kilograms, the LG W2230S is quite light compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago.

10 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

Based on seven expert reviews from sites including Trusted Reviews, Digital Versus, Pocket Lint and 01net.com the average expert rating of this PC screen is 64 out of 100. The PC screen expert review sites aren't convinced by this PC display.

Poor Connectivity

One person who reviewed this PC monitor reckoned that it was not good in terms of connectivity. Pcmag-Mideast.com mentioned in their review of this PC monitor six years ago “Lacks connectivity, no swivel”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The LG W2230S does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the W2230S also do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the AOC e2260Swhu[plb_1364850_price], the AVUE AVK10S22W[plb_1776148_price], or the Neovo HX-24[plb_1886037_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The LG W2230S is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other PC screens that have been around for more than two years are also not 3D compatible.

PC screens which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the D2769[pl_1563236_price], or the d2757Ph[pl_1515695_price] both from AOC or the NEC MultiSync P241[plb_2071945_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LG W2230S does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC monitors of this age and spec also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors with a built-in camera and we think the 27" Thunderbolt Display[pl_1715481_price], or the 27" Cinema Display[pl_1999154_price] both from Apple or the HP EliteDisplay E221[plb_1556554_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago, the LG W2230S does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The LG W2230S has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most PC monitors of this age and spec.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display and we think the Samsung 320MXN-3[plb_1365711_price], the AVUE AVK10S22W[plb_1776148_price], and the Wortmann AG Terra 2770W[plb_1663001_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the display type of this LCD screen is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the e2250Swdnk[pl_1364842_price] (LED), the U2868[pl_2276998_price] (LED), or the I2276[pl_2256588_price] (LED) all from AOC which is also higher rated.
