LG Flatron L1750U
I once complained in one of my earlier articles concerning some monitors from Samsung that I couldn’t quite grasp the difference between the half a dozen of formally different models. Now it seems LG has started a similar production of near-identical models, too.
The L1750U hardly differs from the L1750SQ in front view: the same design of the front panel and the same rectangular buttons flush with the case. There’s the same round base, too. You can only see the difference in profile: the L1750U uses an external power adapter, so the monitor’s case is thinner.
The monitor has no video connector as such – the cable goes through the base and deep into the case. The interface is analog, of course. The power adapter connector is placed rather unusually, along the center of the case, right above the base.
The monitor’s controls are the same as the L1750SQ’s. You can quickly switch over between the brightness/contrast presets (LightView technology) and turn off the power indicator’s LED. The latter feature is quite appropriate here as the indicator is a bright blue LED rather than a traditional green.
The monitor’s default brightness and contrast are 100% and 70%, respectively. I achieved 100nit brightness of white by choosing 50% brightness and 60% contrast.
