 I have one of these, fantastic

| | See all igirisujin's reviews (1)

I got this from somewhere else because play could not supply, and I can say that this is a fantastic monitor.
To answer a few of the questions in some of the other reviews!.
Yes it can be used as a standalone TV
The difference between this and the 22LS4R is this one has a DVI connection and the 22LS4R has a HDMI connection, apparently these are exactly the same signal and converters exist to connect DVI to HDMI and vic-versa
It is 720P
It has DVI and VGA and scart connections at the back as well as several others so I have two PCs and a DVD player all connected at the same time.
It does not have Teletext.
I cannot fault this as a PC monitor, the display is crisp, refresh is great when playing games, so no ghosting,trailing pixels.
Could not find any backlight bleed as noted in some reviews of the 22LS4R.

 M228WA vs 22LS4R

| | See all alsatian's reviews (3)

The 22LS4R is actually a TV, not a pc monitor.
From the specs on the UK and German Lge site,
the only differences, besides the hdmi connection,
seems to be that the 22LS4R has only 16.2 mio colours (6bit+FRC)
and the M228WA has 16.7 mio. colours (8bit).
If you want a monitor get this one,
and if you want a TV get the 22LS4R.

 Monitor/TV for my PS3

| | See all Joeydub's reviews (1)

Ive had this monitor for 2 days now and im still impressed. Ive got my ps3 connected to it via hdmi to dvi. I can get 720p and 1080i out of it and it looks absolutely fantastic. I was reading other reviews about the speakers and how terrible they were, there not. Unless your thinking that they are cinema surround sound 8.1 speakers your'l be dissapointed.
They are easily as good as my old sdtv speakers.
No dead pixels, easy to set up, 3 year warranty from LG.
So good I might even buy another one.
Very very very highly recommended, A***

 Great for xbox360

| | See all Yepyap's reviews (1)

Bought this TV for my son's 360 as I couldn't get watching our own TV in the living room. I found setting it up straight forward. Picture quality on TV stations very good and as for the 360, well the picture quality just stood out. We had been playing it on a normal 32"crt TV through RGB and the difference was unreal. As mentioned in other reviews the sound leaves a lot to be desired, I have a Panasonic 20" on our kitchen wall and the sound is superb so there really is no defence for the VERY POOR sound quality on this TV. However it did cost a bit less than the Panasonic and I overcame the sound quality by using an old set of PC speakers I had kept.
So it is a good TV, at a good price, with a great picture let down somewhat by very lacklustre speakers. Forget about the audio settings, just use a set of half decent PC speakers and you will have no problems. I hope.

 Excellent

I bought this from a national high street retailer. It was not available from Play at that time. (no price shown). I did pay more than Play's current price. Compaired to what else is on the market I still feel I got a bargain.

Initially I wanted something to watch DVD's on, but also as a living room PC monitor, and long term as an alternative for the Projector we haven't yet bought. (We don't want to burn out the expensive projector bulb watching the news, or checking email now do we?)

Looks and picture quality are great.
Range of inputs is great. Yes it takes an Ariel, SCART, D-SUB (pc), DVI (HDMI adaptor easily available for this), Composite, Component, S-video RCA Audio input. Headphone (3.5mm jack) audio out..... I can't remember them all.

The integrated TV tuner works fine, though I haven't used is as I have Digital Cable. (input via SCART)
I have tested the SCART, component , s-video and component inputs and all work fine. I've not yet set up a PC in that room.

Some people in earlier reviews complained that the sound wasn't great...
My first impression was that the sound was extremely poor, but then I found that the mains power lead was not in the socket correctly. on correcting this the sound was acceptable.
Now please note: the integrated sound on any TV or Monitor is always going to be poor compared with feeding the signal into your stereo. This is beside my Hi-Fi Separate system, so most sources don't feed their audio into the TV at all.
I worked some years ago for a major consumer electronics manufacturer in the product development lab. At the time the first generation of Plasma TV's were costing in the US $20,000 range... The manufacturing budget for the onboard sound system for one of these TV's at the time was a HIGH $12. Now compare that to your Hi-Fi and you decide which will sound better. Heavens above, just compare the sizes of the speaker cones.
