Meh

I'm going to be honest here: there's really nothing about the LG Flatron IPS235V that stands out aesthetically.

Well, almost nothing

The bezel does sport a wood-like finish. I guess that's something.

Then there's this...

The foot stand is larger than what's typically seen on 23-inchers, so I guess that's somewhat special, too. Also, be sure you've tightened the screw on the underside of the stand or it will wobble. A lot.

Profiling

The IPS235V isn't the thinnest monitor, so if you're a sub-inch profile purist (you know who you are), you may want to try something else.

Tilting

Yes, it's a bit plump; that doesn't mean it can't tilt like the best of them, though.

Array

The OSD array doesn't label the buttons. It instead leaves that to the actual OSD.
