First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
23 inch Flat-Panel Display

Despite its glorious 23in screen space, the L2320A is just 6.6cm thick and its 14.4kg frame makes it relatively comfortable to carry over short distances. Main cable connections are routed through the attendant Media Station that also supports a host of alternative audio and video connections including special DVD and HDTV facilities. Both RGB and digital DVI interfaces are supported, although since the DVI interface is restricted to a maximum resolution of just 1280x1024, the screen’s digital capabilities are limited. In truth, you probably won’t want to use the L2320A below its native resolution of 1900x1200.
Specifications are very good and include 0.258mm pixel pitch and 400:1 contrast ratio, 16:9 widescreen capabilities, excellent 176º viewing angle and twin USB ports. Image quality is decent, with vibrant colours and reasonably crisp text output, and advanced features include BrightWindow (allowing you to highlight a portion of the screen by dramatically increasing the brightness on it), Picture-In-Picture and Split Picture.
Although the L2320A looks like a huge screen, a couple of 15in flat-panels connected together will offer 20 per cent more workspace. Such a setup wouldn’t be nearly as attractive as the LG, but would certainly prove more cost-effective. For the L2320A’s asking price, you could buy six 15in screens and connect them together.
