The Good The LG Flatron W2486L offers great performance in games and has one of the thinnest designs we've seen of any size.
The Bad The LG Flatron W2486L lacks ergonomic features, has a low brightness level, and its color reproduction looks dull compared with its competitors.
The Bottom Line The LG Flatron W2486L is a great LED-backlit monitor that few will choose over its main competitor.
LG Flatron W2486L
Theis currently the reigning king of LED monitors. Compared with the LG Flatron W2486L, the SyncMaster offers better performance, lighter weight, and a thinner design. Granted, the W2486L comes with a VGA port and two HDMI ports--as opposed to the Samsung's single HDMI and DVI ports--but it also sells for $350--$50 more than the street price of the XL2370. So the question is, "How much is HDMI worth to you?"
Design and features
The 23-inch LG Flatron W2486L is nearly as thin as the Samsung SyncMaster XL2370, measuring 0.8 inch in depth, compared with the Samsung at just a tad more than 0.5 inch. The Flatron's bezel measures 0.8 inch on the sides--thinner than the XL2370's 1.1 inches. The full width of the display is 22.7 inches, slightly longer than the XL2370. Its screen has a slightly frosty, matte finish and the neck of the display uses a unique, slightly concave upside-down triangle with pink highlights. Overall, the shape and color lends a very organic look to the neck.
The Flatron uses an oval-shaped base that measures a relatively large 10 inches wide and 8 inches deep, yet it doesn't do much to minimize wobbling. For better or worse, the Flatron's weight of 10.32 pounds--more than 2 pounds heavier than the XL2370--worked as an effective anchor to prevent it from toppling.
