- Deep blacks, rich colours, HDMI and component connections
- Some contrast and colour intensity problems at wide angles, some noise in dark greys
A great monitor for general home or office use, with the additional ability to act as quite a capable movie display. Not the best choice for professional work but definitely worth considering for anything else.
Price$ 999.00 (AUD)
LG's L246WH monitor is a 24in widescreen display with a 1920x1200 native resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio. Its rich colours, deep blacks and fast response time make it well suited to a variety of uses. Some contrast problems at wide viewing angles and noise levels in dark grey colours hold it back from high-level professional use, but as a general home or office monitor it performs quite well.
We ran the monitor through a standard series of DisplayMate Video Edition tests, and were quite pleased with its performance. We noticed some noise in dark grey patterns, but overall the L246WH was an excellent performer, with deep blacks, good contrast levels and bright colours.
At wide viewing angles, however, contrast suffers, and colour intensity is somewhat lessened. Luminance levels were quite good, with dark greys easily distinguishable on black backgrounds, and light greys similarly visible on white backgrounds. Colours were evenly spread across the entire screen, although slight shifts in intensity were visible from wide viewing angles.
Our test photos were displayed with plenty of detail, even in high contrast areas, and with bright, vivid colours. We again noticed some noise in dark greys, although on the whole this monitor does a great job with photos.
The L246WH handled movies well in our tests, however users watching particularly dark scenes are advised to sit front-on to the monitor to minimise contrast issues. Motion was excellent, and we didn't notice any blurring nor ghosting in our tests. HDMI and Component ports are available as well, making the monitor very well suited to movie playback.
Calibration options include some preset colour temperatures and a user defined mode, as well as standard brightness and contrast controls. Positioning controls are also present, although the display automatically scaled to the screen size when we connected the monitor, so we didn't need to use them in our tests.
The L246WH's design is quite attractive, with a black plastic bezel and anti-glare coating on the screen. This helped to reduce glare and reflection significantly, and even under fluorescent lights we only noticed reflections from extremely close objects on a black screen. The screen can be tilted and swiveled, however no rotation between landscape and portrait modes is available.
Overall, the LG L246WH is capable of handling the vast majority of tasks likely to be thrown at it. With great colours and deep blacks, as well as HDMI and component connections, it makes a great screen for movie viewing. Some flaws hold it back from higher-end professional use, however it should satisfy any casual users looking for a large widescreen display.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
