LG's offering in the 23 inch Full HD segment: the W2361V. A 2 ms screen with a design not dissimilar to the Samsung T series.
A glossy black bezel underlain with a transparent plastic band. There are three video connections: VGA, DVI and HDMI. No speaker but LG has placed a headphones out for sound from the HDMI connection. There is minimum base mobility; ie you can only tilt the panel. This is only enough for two stars for handling.

Colours



Nothing major when you turn it on but the sensor does highlight some problems with brightness of grey levels as well as a blue and red tinge. Nothing very alarming or disturbing however. The average difference between the colours requested by the graphics card and those displayed by the monitor, or the DeltaE, is only 3.2. Anything under 3 and only the very practiced eye can tell the difference. Setting the colours in sRGB rather than 6500K improves results even more and gives a deltaE of 2.8.


Contrast levels are also above average at over 830 : 1 (average is around 750 : 1.
The colours are faithful enough then to allow you to use the screen for amateur photo work. Pros will prefer a monitor with a VA panel giving better colour homogeneity.

Films

LG doesn't do any better than other manufacturers in this area. Not the worst flickering we've seen but very visible all the same. Upscaling from SD sources leaves something to be desired. As usual then, you'll have to have the right source and reader to optimise video results.

 
Gaming
The W2361V manages rapid movements well. It will therefore be as good with games as your office docs. With an average display delay of under 1 image, no concerns when it comes to multi-player online or LAN either. Your performance may be compromised, but not by the screen!

PROS

  • Minimum display delay
  • Good responsiveness
  • Contrast

CONS

  • Build and design: no rotation, just screen tilt
  • TN panel = reduced angle of vision

CONCLUSION 3/5

If you're not looking for a screen you can adjust in height and use for photo work, the W2361V is made for you.
