LG Flatron W2271TC review

£179.11 inc VAT

Manufacturer: LG Electronics

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

The styling and feel of the LG Flatron family of flatpanels has barely changed in several years. That's not a criticism, however: despite its rather chunky frame, the 22in LG Flatron W2271TC cuts a stylish figure.

The styling and feel of the LG Flatron family of flatpanels has barely changed in several years. That's not a criticism, however: despite its rather chunky frame, the 22in LG Flatron W2271TC cuts a stylish figure.

Nice touches include the LG Flatron W2271TC's glossy casing and the eye-catching glowing blue flash that signifies the power's on. But the case does seem to attract anything that happens to be floating through the air.

LG fits a small camera into the casing and this, combined with the built-in microphone, makes the LG Flatron W2271TC a convenient screen for web conferencing.

We also like the menu system. Logically-placed buttons and clearly labelled options make the LG Flatron W2271TC an easy flatpanel to navigate. Start to adjust any of the colour settings and a split-screen will show you simultaneous before and after images, so you know exactly what the effect of selecting each option will be.

    Not so very long ago, the typical flat-panel came with a contrast of just 300:1 or 400:1. These low ratios didn't remain the apogee of LCD technology for long and today's ordinary screens come with a contrast ratio of 600:1 or 700:1. However, no other company has shown quite the guile of LG, choosing to boast that its latest 19in flat-panel has a startling 3,000:1.
