Noble design, very high contrast ratio, and swift response times - the LG L1970HR sets out to define a new standard in LCDs for gaming. Sporting a contrast ratio of 2000:1, the TN panel - at least on paper - surpasses all the currently available LCD monitors that feature VA or IPS technology. Quite naturally, the claimed 2 ms response time raises fairly high expectations towards the gaming capabilities of the L1970HR. Whether LG's top-of-the-shelf display is actually able to walk the talk in terms of its specifications, you can find out in the following review.

All results issued in this review have been established using the digital input, with the exception of the test runs for analog image quality, which have been established on the analog input. All tests have been conducted using two Point of View GeForce 7800GTX 512MB (SLI).

Scope of supply

The scope of supply of the LG L1970HR comprises one DIN-A4 sized sheet with setup instructions, one short manual with installation notes, one CD, one VESA100 mounting plate with four crosshead screws, one external power supply unit, one power cable, one D-Sub cable, and one DVI-D cable. Thus, all necessary accessories are supplied with the display.

The CD contains a detailed multilingual manual in PDF format along with monitor drivers for Windows. Here, one can also find in several languages the information that is given on the DIN-A4 sheet and in the short manual. A detailed printed manual is not included with this monitor.
