    Did you test it on ps3 or Xbox 360? Wondering if it can 1:1 pixel mapping. Did it have Vesa wall mount option? I'm considering to buy sister model to this monitor(LG W2452V-PF) with HDMI input but finding these crucial facts seems to be impossible.

    I've got the 22" TV/combo version of this (m228wd) and it's excellent, much better than the samsung it replaced. Would go nicely with your xbox or ps3 as well mate cos it's got hdmi

    Just think beyond 19"/20" is a bit excessive because you're having to move your head as well as yours eyes to read the screen though!

    Speakers are ****e on mine though, not sure if they're better on this?

    5 years on and it's noticeable how little the market has changed. Clearly cheap 1920x1080 LCDs have poisoned innovation in the market. Where are the cheap 2560x1600 displays?

    You say that, but you can get a decent 22" IPS monitor for just over £100 now. Okay, so we've not really expanded the market upwards, but at least decent monitors are widely available and cheap now.

    The price hike for 1920 x 1200 monitors is what bugs me. I have an ancient 22 inch 1680 x 1050 for the PC. Downstairs is the main TV at 1920 x 1080 with HTPC. Thus my PC is for documents in the main and some gaming To get a useful screen real estate increase for reading documents, rather than watching movies, I need at least the vertical 1200 res to make the purchase worthwhile.

    An 'ideal' monitor for me would be more like 1920 x 1600

    I would rather save myself £50 and get the Dell U2412M IPS panel

    Well I'd be impressed if you could still buy the monitor that was reviewed 5 years ago!
