LG‘s W2261VG is a 21.5″ LCD monitor sporting a 1920 x 1080 pixel format. LCD monitors posing as LCD TVs are all the rage these days. The W2261VG is one of them. Check out the features: ultra-fast 2ms response time, decent 1000:1 contrast ratio and a industry standard 300 cd/m2 brightness. The 21.5″ LCD monitor also has all of the requisite connections: VGA, DVI-D with HDCP and HDMI. Although this is a personal preference I am not sure I like the extra flesh-like thing hanging down and posing as a power button. The “Touch of Color”-esque design probably looks much better in real life than in this picture but I think LG could have done a bit better. All in all the W2261VG seems to be a decent LCD monitor that can actually work fairly well as a LCD TV. With the current exchange rate the W2261VG is about US$225–a bargain.
