-Thin is in.
For the last few years, monitor vendors have been pushing thinner and even thinner monitors onto the market, culminating in what we have here today, the "slimmest monitor ever." I'm Eric Franklin from CNET and, today, we're taking a first look at the LG E2290.
The E90 is, indeed, the thinnest monitor we've yet seen measuring a tad more than one quarter of an inch at its slimmest.
That's nearly half a stick as the Samsung PX2370.
Now, looks may not be everything, but with something billed as the slimmest ever, they do obviously account for something.
The E90 has a sleek chrome finish with smooth, somewhat rounded angles.
Its footstand is wide and provides a very stable base.
The power button is also marked by an even larger LED light, ensuring you won't have trouble finding it.
You may have trouble finding the monitor, though, because it's thin people.
Connection options include one HDMI, one DVI, one VGA, and a headphone jack.
We've not yet had the chance to get into performance test, but we did check out a few movies and games.
They looked a bit washed out but, overall, they were good for our purposes and, to be perfectly fair, we've yet to have a chance to dive really deep into calibration.
Check out our full review coming soon to see if the E90 takes off
or if it's too thin to fly the thin [unk].
You know, this monitor is so thin it has to stand in the same place twice to cast a shadow.
This monitor is so thin.
When it turns sideways, it disappears.

It uses dental floss as toilet paper.
Yeah, think about it.
This guy knows what I'm talking about.
You know, I've seen some thin monitors in my time, but this monitor is so thin it has to run around the shower to get wet.
All right, I've been here all week.
Enjoy the veal, tip the waitress.
All right, thank you.
