LG Flatron L192WS
This is a widescreen monitor from LG.
The LG Flatron L192WS is a low-end widescreen monitor with a TN matrix. Its specified viewing angles are measured by the 5:1 method. The specified response time of 5 milliseconds ISO implies a slow matrix.
The exterior design matches the market segment the product belongs with: a square case made from gray plastic that stands on a simple black plastic stand. There are no extraordinary solutions in this minimalistic design.
The stand only allows to adjust the tilt of the screen.
The stand can be replaced with a VESA compatible mount. Note the position of the control buttons in the photo. I’ll discuss them shortly.
There is a minimum of connectors here: an analog input and a mains connector for the integrated power adapter.
The developers from LG seem to have problems finding a proper place for the monitor’s controls. They are trying to hide the buttons but can’t make that convenient for the user. The models we described in our previous review had buttons at the back, a few centimeters away from the edge of the screen and were hard to access. The control buttons of this model are at the back, too, but in the bottom right corner now. This solution is better, yet still not quite convenient, as it’s hard to hit the necessary button being directed only by the small icons on the front panel. It’s good that the Power button is placed apart from the others, though.
The monitor provides quick access to the auto-adjustment feature and to choosing f-Engine modes whose influence on the image quality was discussed at the beginning of the review.
It’s a standard menu of LG monitors: easy to use, logically organized, and lacking any special features.
