The monitor is an LG L226WTQ, and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this brand or maybe this exact monitor. I got it for 220 USD by the way, and that includes the tax. Without tax it was 199 USD.
I’m asking because my last monitor seemed great for about a week, then the menu would continuously (quite literally would press the menu button by itself about three times in one second non-stop, so it would go through the whole menu and into the auto-adjust once ever second), and finally the display went bad. I also had a tough time calibrating it.
So far, this new one seems quite nice, and it was easy to calibrate (as soon as I read the manual… Default settings make everything yellow, but there’s an obscure menu item called “White Balance,” which calibrates it perfectly), and has several modes that will automatically adjust brightness/contrast depending on the image displayed, for movies and games, so it seems nice there too. I’m just worried it will have problems like my last one, which was an X2Gen MW19U I got for my birthday.
