      I caught this on sale for much, much less than the suggested retail, and I must say that I am very impressed. This is only my 2nd flatscreen & 1st widescreen (not counting my laptop). I'm using it with a 1GB Video card with the DVI output. The aspect ratio is perfect for 16x9 movies or video. I'm not a gamer, so I cannot speak to the pros or cons in that arena (no pun intended). This monitor has suited my tastes by simply using the factory presets, but they can be changed to suit yours. All in all, I would buy another at the same price if I needed one. The only reason that I don't give 5 stars is because I've only owned this for a couple of weeks; so I'm not too sure about longevity, but LG stuff is usually reliable for a decent lifespan.

      One last note: There are no drivers supplied for Vista or Windows 7 (I looked, but did not find any on the included CD or the LG website), but it doesn't matter. The generic drivers work just fine.

      The clarity of this monitor is fantastic, and I love using it for designing graphics. The touch-on feature is pretty nice as well. Unfortunately, the base of the monitor is a really cheap, light plastic and it creates a top-heavy issue. It is so cheap that the monior is actually set into it lop-sided, and I could not adjust it. It is about .5 inch lower on the right side, and I had to put a wedge underneath it to make it sit straight. I almost returned the monitor, but wasn't sure if I would get a better one. I would not buy this if you are looking for perfection like I was.

                Not sure why it was discontinued, because it's a fantastic advancement compared to my old monitor. I love it. I got it for a great price, and that's probably why. The only thing I'm unhappy about is how to figure out the appl. (forteManager) so I can tweak it, to make adjustments. In the interim, defalt settings will suffice. Other than that, I feel it's a great product.

                      This monitor has completed the system I was building for gaming. Once I logged into the game I play, World of Warcraft, I was amazed at the vibrance of the colors and image details. I no longer had to keep the settings low for performance in the game. I am very pleased with this product.

                          This was a replacement monitor for a six-year-old computer. We only needed something to get us by but this one far exceeded our expectations. I'm not an expert on computers or monitors but this one was easy to set up, works great, and is stylish. The only weird thing is when I turn the power off, sometimes it doesn't stay off...maybe this is user-related...otherwise a great purchase!

                                When shopping for a new LCD monitor I compared and contrasted a number of models/manufacturers. The W1953T stood well above the others. As soon as I took it out of the box I couldn't believe something this nice came at such a great price.The classy, high quality look stood out and the performance matches the look. This monitor is all I wanted and more, all at an excellent price/value. 5 stars!

                                      As others have mentioned, the controls present a large learning curve. The colors and resolution on photographs are outstanding. Only complaint is that the text resolution on some applications is less than desirable. I have tried fine tuning my graphics controls with both the monitor and software but neither help. Otherwise this is a nice value!
