REVIEW: LG Flatron W2443T
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
The W2443T von LG Electronics is the bigger brother to the W2243T. According to the manufacturer, both models are suitable for both private and business users. With its 24-inch screen diagonal and resolution of 1.920 x 1.080 pixels plus the aspect ratio of 16:9 associated with it, the W2443T belongs to the category of Full-HD widescreen LCDs, but the user must do without a HDMI input. The piano lacquer exterior in combination with the power button (red power LED) in a rounded design gives the W2443T a unique, elegant appearance.

LG lists a dynamic contrast of 30.000:1 and a static contrast of 1.000:1 as features of the W2443T-PF. A TN (Twisted Nematic) panel with a fast response time of 2 milliseconds grey-to-grey (manufacturer’s indication) is used in the model and is equipped with an anti-glare layer.
In addition, the manufacturer advertises a luminance of 300 cd/m² and a viewing angle of 170 degrees horizontal and 160 degrees vertical. The following test will show whether or not the LCD monitor can actually achieve these values.
During the test, an Nvidia Geforce GTX 260 with HDCP-enabled DVI output was used. The colour values were measured with a colorimeter (the DTP94 from Quato). The values measured for the power consumption were measured using the Energy Monitor 3000. A Sony S350E was used to play DVD and BluRay material. The suitability of the monitor for gaming was tested using the PC and the Playstation 3.
The LG W2443T is delivered in a simple, solid box with the LG logo. The display, the base and the extras and cables are all packaged separately in their own plastic shells and are well protected. Furthermore, the monitor is stored in perfectly fitting, sturdy Styrofoam. The packing is appropriate and well designed.
