    LG 20" LCD monitors - difference between L2010B and L2010P?

    I am looking to buy 2 decent-sized LCD monitors for my main home PC - capable of 1600x1200 and running games without excessive ghosting.

    In my search for reasonably sized and priced screens, I found the LG L2010B 20" screen which seems great... then I tried to find a review on it and came up empty.
    At first I thought it was a typo on the retailer's site, as there are references and reviews for the 2010P monitor, but this is for sale on the same site (and others) at a much higher price.

    I found the manufacturer's spec sheets on LGE's Nordic site and I can't see any significant difference between them:
    L2010B PDF
    L2010P PDF

    As I'm looking to buy 2 of the same screen, and the L2010B seems perfect, can anyone tell me why I should go for the L2010P?

    It looks like the P model has a different stand with a built in USB hub. What's the price difference between the 2 screens?

    L2010P = 8,260 SEK (~£614)
    L2010B = 6,563 SEK (~£488)

    At least from the supplier I found that has both models.
    As I'm looking to get 2 screens I don't want to pay that much of a difference twice over!

    Hi Paul,

    Just wanted to give you a heads-up that Eizo have been running particularly stressful graphics just to show how little ghosting they suffer from

    It was pretty impressive at CeBIT

    Might be worth some investigating...

    ...especially if you can find someone at Eizo that would offer you a 'field test' given that you are fellow professional

    if it carrys on the tradition of LG TFT's the only difference between the P and B models is indeed the inclusion of a USB hub.

    My L1730P is a B but with a little crappy (USB1) hub on the back, which isnt even powered. But it was cheaper than the B model when i got it

    Thanks Andrzej, but OUCH those things look expensive!
    Most of my work is Windows desktop-based, with the occasional bit of gaming, so I think I'd be okay with the lower-end units

    Bleurgh, I guessed that would be it, I just couldn't find a single review on the L2010B anywhere to confirm it, thanks.


    I think, though, that I may have found what I will get
    The Dell 2001FP 20" - ironically I can source it direct from Dell in 5-7 days for 5355 SEK each (~£395) all inclusive, and it seems to be accepted as a pretty good unit:
    Anandtech Review
    ZDNet Review
    FirstAdpoter Review

    I toyed with the idea of getting a 2405FPW - widescreen loveliness at 1920x1200 and can be purchased through a couple of powersellers on eBay for around £700... but I figured I'd prefer the flexibility of 2 screens and more desktop space (physical and virtual)

    Thanks for the input guys
