     Excellent Unit - Great Performance to Price Ratio

    | | See all Nadeemx's reviews (2)

    It has been for sometime now that I have been searching for a 22" HD Monitor/TV with Freeview - within a budget of £300. Earlier in the year I was very tempted to purchase the LG M228WA and the LG 22LS4R both of which have received high recommendations - but I held back.
    I then came across a LG 22LS4D, which Play advertised very briefly and then removed from listings. Alas, after some searching I located the LG 22LS4D at my local Empiredirect and immediately purchased for £299.99. Getting the unit home was disappointing. The picture quality on this unit was astonishingly bad and well below my expectations. Digital channels were very unclear and the backlight bleed was on par with some of the worst. As a matter of fact, I took pictures for future comparison purposes. Unit was immediately returned and my search resumed. My wait was not in vain.
    To start, the LG M228WD is aesthetically very pleasing. The piano black finish looks amazing and definitely adds a touch of class. When viewing this unit online, the silver strip at the bottom of the screen looked rather 'bright', however upon taking the unit out the box I was surprised to see a more 'gun metal grey' colour which actually looks really good and compliments the exterior casing very well.
    The Number of available connections is impressive, with the following available. VGA, HDMI, 2xScart, Component, Audio (red and white), 3.5mm jack to connect to other audio devices and an Aerial socket.
    Assembling the unit requires minimum effort, with supports clicking into place. Please note, the height of this unit cannot be adjusted, the screen can only be tilted up or down. The viewing angle on this seems to be good, although I normally sit directly in front, when tested viewing from an angle I have not seen a significant shift in colour. A great feature which impressed me and was totally unexpected was the touch sensitive on/off sensor in place of the traditional button.
    Unlike the LG 22LS4D mentioned earlier I am pleased to say the picture quality when viewing Freeview, is much better, a review on CNET describes this area as 'average'. However, in my opinion for the price to performance ratio I would rate this as above average. One area which I was dreading was the level of backlight bleed, which was one of the reasons for returning the LG 22LS4D - once again the LG M228WD has exceeded my expectations and the level of backlight bleed given out can be best described as acceptable. Note to all those unaware, backlight bleed is a generic issue in all LCD units below a certain price bracket, and the amount of light given out will vary.
    So far, I have connected my XBOX 360 and am currently running this at 1080p without problems. PC via VGA is also running fine. I also have a Nintendo Wii which I could not connect directly using the standard 3 RCA as there is no yellow video port. This issue was swiftly dealt with by using a 3xRCA Scart adaptor. Thus far I am very pleased with the performance of what I have seen in terms of output. Unfortunately, I do not own a PS3 else the Blu Ray output could also have been tested.
    Now, moving onto the one main area which has let this unit down is the audio. The LG M228WA was the predecessor for this model and judging by the reviews, one would image that LG would contemplate doing something about it on the upgrade. The Audio which is output can be best described as 'tinny'. Consequently, I have started a search for an alternative - a set which has caught my attention is the 'Logic3 PS3 Soundstation 3 Speaker System' (available on Play) which should easily hook up to this unit via the 3.5mm audio jack. On a closing note, I am very pleased with this purchase and rate this unit 8.5/10. RECOMMENDED!!!

     Awesome Value for a great monitor

    | | See all Drazzard's reviews (3)

    I bought this monitor at the beginning of the year and i have to say it really is excellent value. Compared to other monitors in the £220-250 range it has a much better contrast and the picture is just lovely. I personally found the sound quality to be fine for a TV, and in my opinion if you value sound then you should have a separate sound system anyway. And to answer a previous review, yes, you can attach an external sound system to the back of the monitor/tv. I currently have TV, PC and XBox360 plugged into it and i can honestly say ithas been one of my better buys for a long time

     Superb TV for the smaller room

    | | See all DelboyLid's reviews (2)

    This TV/Monitor really is the business for the price. Displays 1080p resolution for my Xbox 360, has an excellent display for DVD even via the scart and has an axcellent user interface, displayed in full colour.

    This product was easy to set up as well. I was able to get going within 20-30 mins, and I also have the added peace of mind that that it is futureproof, given the addition of the HDMI, Freeview TV and free PC cable.

    If there is one negative about this product, it would be the sound, which can be 'tinny' if turned up to loud, but works well once you find the right level.

    All in all, very pleased and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone, especially as a bedroom TV. Great stuff from LG!

     Great TV

    This TV is awesome! Comes with cable so you can connect it to your computer. picture quality is fantastic, yeah the sound isn't amazing but what do you expect for the price? Great value TV, and it looks so much better in real life, the picture makes it look cheap and flimsy like a pc monitor but was really surprised how good it looks out the box. Great TV buy it!

     Amazing TV/Monitor. Another Brilliant product from LG

    Top 100 PC Reviewer

    This TV/Monitor is superb it has connections video input connections for everything. I have 2 PCs connected via HDMI and VGA, Xbox 360 through Component and DVD player through scart. The picture is outstanding from all inputs.

    I really like its abiliy to display 1080P as most TVs this size and even bigger ones only support 720P and 1080i.

    The built in Freeview is a nice addition to this Tv as again with others they give you all these wonderful features and only give you an analogue Tv.

    In conclusion to this it's a brilliant product, well worth the money, couldn't be happier with it
