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.

LG Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays

We checked 2,898 owner and expert reviews for LG PC screens and found that on average LG has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that LG has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors.

Quite Fast Response Time

Across all the LCD screens of a similar type and age to the W2230S the response times range from 1ms to 69ms. At only 5 milliseconds, the LG W2230S has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other similar spec PC monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest PC monitor that was released around the same time as the W2230S is 3g weight and the heaviest is 39kg. With a weight of only 2.9 kilograms, the LG W2230S is quite light compared to most of the other PC screens of this spec and age.

10 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

The average expert rating of this flatpanel monitor is 64% based on seven expert reviews from sites including Trusted Reviews, Digital Versus, Pocket Lint and 01net.com. Experts don't rate this LG PC display very highly.

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(s)

The LG W2230S does not have a built-in speaker(s), although this is within the context that most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and type also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider include the AOC e2260Swhu, the Samsung S27B970D, or the LG 24MN33D which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D

The LG W2230S is not 3D. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the W2230S are also not 3D.

If you want a PC display that is 3D then you might want to consider the Philips 272G5DYEB/93, the AOC d2757Ph, or the LG D2343 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other PC displays of this spec and age, the LG W2230S does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in camera and we think the NEC MD211, the Philips C272P4, or the Viewsonic VG2437mc which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the W2230S do not have a card reader integrated. The LG W2230S is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays with a card reader integrated and we think the U3011 (£899.99), the UP2414Q (£449.00), or the UP3214Q (£598.80) all from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Narrow Viewing Angle, Vertical

The LG W2230S has a quite narrow viewing angle, vertical (only 160 degrees) compared to most of the other PC displays of this spec and age. The average viewing angle, vertical of medium monitors that are a similar age to the W2230S is 170°, and the viewing angle, verticals range from 15° to 180°.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Viewing Angle, Horizontal

At only 170 degrees, the LG W2230S has a quite narrow viewing angle, horizontal compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the W2230S. The narrowest viewing angle, horizontal of LCD screens of a similar age and spec to the W2230S is -5°, the widest is 1,800°, and the average viewing angle, horizontal is 170°.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Display Brightness

The average display brightness of medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago is 290 cd/m². At only 250 candellas per square meter, the LG W2230S has a quite dim display brightness compared to most of the other LCD screens of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption (off)

At 1 Watt, the LG W2230S has a quite high power consumption (off) compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the W2230S. The lowest power consumption (off) of PC monitors that were released more than two years ago is 0.005W and the highest is 21W.

4 Other reasons to consider the LG W2230S

Running Costs Are OK

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the W2230S will cost £47 over 5 years to run, which is typical compared to the other 993 PC monitors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Released Over Three Years Ago

This medium monitor has been on the market for over three years.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

LCD Display

The LG W2230S has an LCD display which is better than the LED display found on most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as it.

We compared all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the ColorEdge CX240 (£182.04), and the FlexScan EV2316 (£234.00) both from Eizo or the Samsung 320MXN-3 is also worth considering.

If the display type of this medium monitor is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the AOC e2250Swdnk (£79.99) (LED), the NEC MultiSync MD211 (LED), or the LG 34UM65 (LED) which also has a higher rating.
