LG Flatron E2350V

The LG Flatron E2350V is essentially LG's version of the Samsung SyncMaster XL2370: a thin, 23-inch monitor, with an LED backlight and a minimalist aesthetic design. The E2350V is sleek, although not quite as stylish or unique-looking as the XL2370 or its updated version, the Samsung PX2370, which both stand out thanks to their transparent necks. The E2350V has great games performance, on par with the XL2370 and PX2370; however, the PX2370 has a slight performance edge in movies, because of a seemingly deeper color gamut. Thanks to its black-level control feature, the E2350V has a lower black level than either Samsung monitor, but unfortunately, it also has a dimmer screen than the two.

The E2350V's trump card is its lower, $280 price. That's $20 less than the XL2370 and $30 less than the PX2370. The E2350V also has unique features like an ambient light sensor and a headphone jack. If you're looking for an LED monitor, go with the PX2370 because of its superior performance. If price is a concern, however, you can't go wrong with the E2350V. It has the performance, features, and the looks to make it well worth its price.

Design and features
The 23-inch LG Flatron E2350V looks like it was modeled directly after the Samsung SyncMaster XL2370. Both monitors have similarly thin profiles, with virtually the same physical dimensions; however, with its transparent neck and edges the XL2370 has an aesthetic flare the E2350V can't match. The Flatron E2350V's panel depth measures 0.65 inch, which is slightly more than the XL2370's considerably thin 0.6-inch depth. The Flatron E2350V's bezel measures 0.9 inch, which is shorter than the XL2370's 1.1-inch. The full width of the Flatron E2350V is 22 inches, and that's about the same as most 23-inch monitors. The Flatron E2350V's screen has a matte finish and its glossy, black neck is similarly curved like the XL2370's. The oval-shaped footstand measures 9.9 inches wide and 8.4 inches deep. Although the display wobbles considerably when knocked from the sides, we don't think it's in any great danger of toppling over, given the well-designed distribution of its light, 7.38-pound weight. The bottom of the bezel sits 2.8 inches from the desktop, about the same as the XL2370.
