Subwoofer included in this LED monitor and TV

With dual function monitor, TV and LED technology, M2380DF loves excess

The electronics manufacturer LG announced last year the launching of its new range of M80 TV monitors, consisting of no fewer than nine models, all sizes and variations combined. A range that is characterized by many features included and not the least.

An impressive list of net technologies
The LED technology was introduced to be used on the display with 16 / 9 report selected by LG to ensure a good quality of display. In this gadget the dual function monitor and TV is obvious. That is why all the new devices integrate a range of HD digital tuners and impressing connectivity. This is, however, above the average (VGA, Component, Composite, Scart and two HDMI ports), plus a USB port, which can be connected to a USB key to read JPG images, MP3 music and DivX movies. In addition, it is able to serve as a computer monitor for games, education or work. This impressive M80 gizmo can substitute an ordinary TV. You can watch TV broadcasts of digital television, including HD transmissions.

Powerful video and also impressive audio

Three models of the M80 series stand out a little more than others: M2080DF, M2280DF and M2380DF. Indeed, they have two speakers plus a 5-watt speaker dedicated to low wave sounds (subwoofer) with 7 watts power. The system delivers a quality of sound well above the average.

Interesting monitor resolutions
Regarding technical characteristics, we can say that all are identical. The exception is M2080 with its 20-inch versions, which displays a resolution of 1 600 x 900 pixels. Their alter egos are called M2280 and M2380 with 21.5-inch display and 23 full HD resolution at 1 920 x 1 080 pixels. In addition, all these monitors offer a dynamic contrast ratio of 1000:15 000 and a brightness of 250 cd / m2. The display response speed is about 5 ms in average.lg-m2380df-2

Limited ergonomics…
The ergonomics of the entire series is almost a shame. The entire range M80 has a base / foot that allows only the leveling of the screen and nothing else (no height adjustment, rotating or pivoting). However, all these displays are equipped with the VESA system with 75 x 75 mm dimensions which allows these stylish sets of TV monitors of just 16.5 mm thickness to be installed on a wall, very simply and easily.

The entire range of monitors of the series has been available since June 2010 and the selling prices starts from 249 euros.

  1. LG LED at 6:13 pm

    Nice article. Flat panels have gone down so much these days, especially plasma TVs. I really can’t tell the difference between a plasma and an LED to justify the price difference.
