LG Flatron L1932P-SN review

£179
Price when reviewed

LG’s Flatron TFTs have always been infinitely flexible and adjustable, and the L1932P-SN is no exception. It swivels almost through a full 360 degrees, can be pivoted to portrait mode, tilts and even lifts 80mm upwards. However you like your monitor set up, the LG will accommodate it.

LG Flatron L1932P-SN review

Hooking the display up to your PC can be via DVI or D-SUB inputs, although only a VGA cable is supplied. The comprehensive OSD offers everything you need to tweak image quality, or you can use the superb forteManager utility instead to make settings from Windows.

Not that you should need to: after a few initial adjustments, we realised the defaults offer the best quality – we simply added a touch of red to warm skin tones. The L1932P-SN scored top marks in our colour-tinting test, which meant it displayed perfect shades of grey where some monitors tinge greys with red or blue. Plus, it was the only TFT to score full marks in our setup screen, clearly distinguishing between the variations of dark black levels.

But it isn’t perfect: the 300cd/m2 brightness didn’t lead to stunning whites, particularly when next to the NEC and Acer. Also, the backlight is slightly uneven, being brighter toward the top of the screen. Plus, while it isn’t a glossy screen like the NEC, there’s a slight grainy finish to it.

Fortunately, none of these shortfalls is noticeable in general use and overall quality is well above average. It doesn’t skimp on an on-site warranty and is the cheapest height-adjustable model here. If your budget won’t stretch to the Labs-winning Philips, it’s a sensible alternative.
