LG's $500 (as of May 19, 2008) W2452T takes a minimalist approach to features--which would be fine if it were priced to match. Unfortunately, the LG costs just as much as Samsung's SyncMaster 2493HM, which packs considerably more connection and adjustability options.
The W2452T has a native resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels, and it can connect to a PC via DVI or VGA input. Though it can swivel and tilt, it lacks pivot and height adjustment. The display forgoes amenities like USB 2.0 ports (fairly common on LCD monitors), an HDMI input, and an integrated Webcam. Nor does it have built-in speakers or an option for attachable speakers.
The monitor's on-screen display menus have plenty of advanced adjustment options--such as individual color controls--but I had difficulty navigating through the menus. The navigation buttons are hidden below the display, and reading the corresponding labels for each button is nearly impossible.
Considering its price, the LG W2452T doesn't make the grade: You can find competing wide-screen displays that have more features and yet cost substantially less.
This very simple monitor has good image quality, but accompanies an unreasonable price tag for its lack of features.
- Good image quality
- Display looks good
- Poorly designed menu
- Minimal adjustments
