    :sigh: I ended up with a lg-lm240wu3-tla1 panel

    TN apparently

    Still, not a bad deal for the price :thumb:

    The most important reason why I'm interested in this monitor is because it has 0 input lag!!!

    This monitor says "see you in hell" to all those CRTs out there!

    I'm having a bit of a problem with mine...every so often it just blanks out for no reason (e.g. while I'm using it so it isn't going into standby) and none of the buttons have any effect on getting the image back.

    Not even the power button works.

    However, turning it off/on at the wall fixes it for perhaps another 2 hours...

    Anyone get this or am I just doubly unlucky? :confused:

    RMA it. Was it branded Yuraku? Seems strange it has a TN panel as it's normally the Yuraku derivatives that come with a TN panel.

    Yes, I'm going to sort out RMAing it tomorrow - at least it gives me a legitimate way of getting back into the panel lottery :hehe:

    Yes, it is Yuraku branded - a quick look on google showed that at least one other person has recieved a Yuraku branded screen with the same TN panel, so hopefully isn't a sign of things to come for the screen

    hmmm

    well if they advertised 178/178 viewing angles, you are free to return it on that alone.

    I really hope this is not going to be their new standard, saving up enough for two more will at least take 2 more months!

    I think he means the time it takes from the image being sent to the screen to the screen telling the pixels to change - rather than the time it takes the pixels to change colours

    And I'm not too bothered by getting TN panel, I can return it both on account of it having a problem where it 'blanks out' every so often and because the lower bezel does not fit and is marked by something...

    Woop, got one today as an early birthday present. The colours seems good (certainly in the Lagom tests) and I think it is a PVA, the panel is LMO-M240J1-L02.
    unfortunately it is glossy which is tolerable in my room as I don't have any lights shining on my room but not ideal.

    It does have a little issue, sometimes it doesn't turn on properly, I get a completely white screen and then it goes all weird and flickery. I have tried to put a Youtube clip up but it didn't work and laziness has taken the better of me.

    Is it the same on vga and dvi? Just a thought that it may be a cable.. or even drivers.

    Maybe, but I don't have a DVI cable to try. A friend is bringing one up from home for me later in the week as he has a spare.

    Yes. Thank you. That is what I meant.

    Basically this monitor is on par with CRT when it comes to input lag!

    Also, it's response time (though it says 6ms) is equivalent to 2ms when compared to a TN.

    Ninja Edit: Ok see here for the tests: (it's the same screen)

    Excellent monitor, connected up very quick with my pc, came with a dvi-hdmi wire which I used to connect my ps3. It plays 1080p full screen and looks better than my own hd tv, good buy its a shame about the build quality, rather poor but what it does makes up for.

    highly recommended monitor!!!

    Can you tell us the panel type. Press menu and + at the same time.
