Onscreen Menu and Setup Options
The menu is designed in LG’s traditional style.
That is, you first have to choose the necessary section of the main menu out of the four available. This only has some meaning for inexperienced users who can see some more information here than just unlabeled menu items.
The first section is where you can specify Brightness and Contrast and choose one of the values of gamma and one of the levels of black. You may only want to increase the level of black to make very dark games brighter. Otherwise, increasing this value will just lower the contrast ratio.
The second section is about color accuracy. You can choose a color temperature mode or set it up manually (by balancing the three basic colors if you use the DVI interface).
You can also use the tone and saturation settings to achieve the desired color reproduction.
The Tracking section contains but one setting, which is Sharpness. As opposed to the Acer GD245HQ, there are no problems with this setting at its default.
The Setup section allows you to adjust the headphones volume, enable overscan (for an HDMI connection only), turn off response time compensation, choose the level of the decorative highlighting and disable the power indicator. You can also reset all the settings to their factory defaults.
The small additional menu is for controlling the monitor’s extra features: Thru Mode (eliminates the input lag as I will discuss shortly), SRS WOW (sound processing), interpolation mode, and dynamic contrast mode.
There is another menu for choosing the operation mode of the decorative highlighting. You can open it by pressing the abovementioned lever.
