    Default LG 23MP68VQ should i buy it?

    Many people in BG has suggested this monitor LG 22MP68VQ-P. Seems to be a good monitor for its price. But after doing a little bit searching i came across a few problems

    1. Cant enter the bios if freesynch is activated. (i might overcome it by using dva/vga cable or changing bios settings in the mobo. Or not use freesynch at all as i dont have a freesych gpu.)

    2. Loses signal while coming out of a game (dva/vga cable or driver update might fix it)

    3. Vertical lines appear (not sure if there is any fix for this. might not be noticable all the time. but once see it, you see it everytime.)


    I will only be using it for watching movies, browsing (and occasionally gaming). It should be an upgrade to my Samsung TN monitor. But i am really worried about these vertical lines.

    So, my question to you good people is, should i buy this monitor?



    i have visited these places:

    i have the 22mp68 with gtx 970 (freesync on)

    1. i can enter bios (when starting pc). although sometimes if there is time gap between starting my pc and turning on monitor, no signal message is displayed; restarting the pc solves this.

    and also i do not know what this is called, when i turn on the monitor the screen feels like it is shaking like changing brightness quickly (noticeable with my black wallpaper). solution-turn off then turn on monitor again.

    2. never happened to me.
    3. did not notice it yet.

    other thing to mention if you buy this monitor, turn off smart energy saving because the monitor changes contrast depending on what is on display and it is very annoying and noticeable particularly when gaming.

    i needed a 75 hz ips monitor and the price was good enough. and other people also said for it will be better than all the other monitors in this price, resolution category. freesync has nothing to do with my purchase decision.

    Does it happen everytime? do i have to restart monitor everytime?

    3. did not notice it yet.
    then dont try to notice. becuase once you see it, you cant unsee it.
    just an illustration: https://i.imgur.com/Vep4EkV.jpg

    other thing to mention if you buy this monitor, turn off smart energy saving because the monitor changes contrast depending on what is on display and it is very annoying and noticeable particularly when gaming.
    thnx for the tip.

    i have a quesiton. how is the backlight bleed and ips glow? is it noticably annoying?
    anything like this? : https://i.imgur.com/F9ZYsxyg.jpg

    I'm currently using the LG 22mp68vq.

    I do notice the vertical lines,I've noticed those lines since i have started using this panel(from the first day).Most noticeable on blue background.However I don't think it's a major issue(i didnt even know it was a problem till now! XD).As the vertical lines doesn't bother me at all.

    Cons according to me:The back light bleed/ips glow of this panel is pretty high.But if you don't work with black/really dark backgrounds, you will be totally fine.I won't really bother you on bright or other coloured backgrounds.
    The stand is flimsy which shouldn't be an issue ,granted you don't move your computer desk.
    (not entirely sure about the bios issue,will try to check).

    Conclusion:The 75hz refresh rate and freesync support for this price is a cherry on top of the cake.If you can just get by with the minor issues.Specially when compared to the Asus vx which is highier priced and got more failure rate aswell afaik.

    Hope it helps!

    Bought it. Used driver (and color profile) from lg website.
    https://pcmonitors.info/articles/usi...es-in-windows/

    Passes all tests from lagom (more or less)
    http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/
    You can see vertical lines on test no. 09 from this:
    https://www.eizo.be/monitor-test/
    but they are not usually noticable under normal circumstances.

    I can enter bios without any problem.

    I do face some issues after exiting/entering some games (like: cod4). Screen goes black.
    but fine on some other games (like: nier automata)
    not sure what the solution is.
    update: ok. the screen going black on cod4 was my fault not the monitors. all good now.

    Viewing angle is good specially in the lower vertical angle, which is important to me as i watch movies from bed.

    Ips glow is bad, specially from lower right corner of the screen, noticable on black scenes in movies.

    Overall this monitor isn't that bad for its price.

    Update: after using it for a few months the only problem I notice is the ips glow from lower right corner. It is particularly noticable if monitor is in a dark room and you you are watching a dark scene. But other than that it's a great monitor at its price.
    Another thing: It doesnt have a good stand. So when your table shakes a bit, the monitor also wobbles. (Probably a minor annyoance)
