The gamma curves are very close to the ideal ones at the default settings. All halftones are reproduced correctly – colors are going to be distorted by the narrow viewing angles of the matrix sooner than by the quality of the setup. The curves retain their shape when the contrast setting is lowered.
The color temperature modes are set up quite correctly. Except for darkest tones whose temperature is obviously too high, the temperature dispersion isn’t bigger than 500K.
The color gamut is normal: a large area of green in comparison with the sRGB space and a minor defect in the point of red area.
Quite typically for an RTC-less matrix, the response time is 13.2 milliseconds on average with a maximum of 23 milliseconds. Yes, this matrix seems very retarded after 2ms ones, although it would be considered very fast just a little while ago when there was no RTC technology.
The maximum brightness and contrast ratio parameters are normal and satisfactory for most applications. The contrast ratio is never lower than 200:1.
The LG Flatron L1918S is going to make a good office monitor if you don’t need a digital interface and don’t care much about its inconvenient controls. Note that its matrix is far inferior in speed to modern gaming monitors.
