LG W2452T review

£349 inc VAT

Manufacturer: LG Electronics

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

LG's W2452T is a 24in LCD display that takes a minimalist approach to features - which would be fine if it were priced to match.

LG's W2452T is a 24in LCD display that takes a minimalist approach to features - which would be fine if it were priced to match. Unfortunately, at this price the LG really needs to offer considerably more connection and adjustability options to compete.

The LG W2452T has a native resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels, and it can connect to a PC via DVI or VGA input.

Although it can swivel and tilt, the LG W2452T lacks pivot and height adjustment.

The LG W2452T forgoes amenities such as USB 2.0 ports (fairly common on LCD monitors), an HDMI input, and an integrated webcam. Nor does it have built-in speakers or an option for attachable speakers.

The monitor's on-screen display menus have plenty of advanced adjustment options - such as individual colour controls - but we had difficulty navigating through the LG W2452T's menus. The navigation buttons are hidden below the display, and reading the corresponding labels for each button is nearly impossible.

  • LG Flatron W2271TC review

    LG Flatron W2271TC

    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.

    LG 29EA93: 29in display with a 21:9 aspect ratio

    The 2560 by 1080 pixel ultra-wide aspect ratio is great, but brings with it issues of compatibility with existing software and hardware. Some of the more advanced options can be tricky to set up. Read our LG 29EA93 review to find out more.

  • V7 D24W33 review

    V7 D24W33

    It's hard to see how V7 manages to load the 24in D24W33 LCD display with so many features and yet undercut the competition on price.
