REVIEW: LG Flatron W2442PA-SF
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
With the W2442PA, LG is presenting an attractively-priced beginner model which would like to score points in the video and multimedia sectors with 16:9 format and a HDMI connection. The model also boasts very low power consumption.
The large number of connectors directly shows that the W2442PA is a multimedia display. However, there is also an enormously extensive colour space. The model is available in two colour variants: The W2442PA-SF has a silver frame and the W2442PA-BF has a black frame. Otherwise, there is no difference between the two models.

In the course of the test, the display will therefore have to show what it can do in the respective areas and whether it may be a secret tip in terms of price/performance. All results published in the test were obtained via the digital output of an ASUS 8600 GTS. A Sony Playstation 3 was used for checking the video functions.
The LG W2442PA is delivered in a box that seems small considering the panel size. When the monitor arrives, the base is not attached. Mounting the base is simple and is confirmed with a locking sound once complete.
Scope of supply
A D-Sub VGA cable and a DVI cable are provided for connecting the monitor with the PC. However, no HDMI cable has been provided. This will need to be purchased separately. The internal switching power supply is fed via an included power cable with external device ports. A sound cable is also included.
There is a getting started guide in printed format, but this is not in German. The complete version of the manual in German can be found on the CD provided in the form of a PDF document. The CD also contains the colour profile and screen driver, but because of communication via DDC, these are unnecessary. Screen-manager software for controlling the pivot function is also included.
