Being released just six months ago, this PC screen is likely to use better technology.
LG has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire flatpanel monitor range compared to other manufacturers.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The 24MT58DF has a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been around for the last year also have a built-in speaker.
There are a number of alternative PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to look at including the Acer XG270HU ($368.99) which has a better Rating; or the Wortmann AG TERRA LED 2255W which is cheaper.
There are a number of other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at including the Philips 258B6QUEB.
Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
New medium monitors have vertical viewing angles of between 65° and 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°. With a vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees, the 24MT58DF has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other latest comparable spec PC monitors.
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
At 178 degrees, the LG 24MT58DF has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors. The average horizontal viewing angle of medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 24MT58DF is 170°.
1080p Video Mode
This PC monitor has a 1080p video mode, which is the most commonly found video mode on latest similar spec PC screens.
+3 More reasons for
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on PC screens that have been on the market for the last year.
The lightest latest medium monitor is 2.6g weight and the heaviest is 33kg. With a weight of only 3.2 kilograms, the 24MT58DF is quite light compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors.
8 Reasons Against
Only One USB Type-A Downstream Port
Most PC displays that were released in the last year have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports, including the LG 24MT58DF which has one USB Type-A downstream port.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The 24MT58DF does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other new medium monitors also do not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 24MT58DF, the 24MT58DF is not 3D compatible.
PC displays which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Acer GN276HL ($249.99).
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The 24MT58DF does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other PC monitors that are a similar age to the 24MT58DF also do not have an integrated card reader.
+5 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type
This PC monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.
Other PC displays that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available which you might want to look at include the Wortmann AG TERRA LED 2255W, or the Acer GN276HL ($249.99) which is cheaper.
If the display resolution of this flatpanel monitor is too few for you then you might want to consider the Asus BE24AQLB (1920 x 1200), or the HP EliteDisplay E242e (1920 x 1200) which is also cheaper.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
PC displays that are a similar age to the 24MT58DF have display brightness of between 200 cd/m² and 800 cd/m². At only 250 candellas per square meter, the LG 24MT58DF has a quite dim display brightness compared to most of the other similar spec LCD screens that came out around the same time as the 24MT58DF.
Only One HDMI Port
The 24MT58DF is a one HDMI port flatpanel monitor.
2 Other reasons to consider the LG 24MT58DF
5000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The 24MT58DF has a maximum contrast ratio of 5000000:1. That's 95% less contrast ratio than the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 100000000:1.
We compared all the other PC screens that have a 5000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to this PC display and we think cheaper LCD screens such as the EliteDisplay E242e, and the 27xw ($199.99) both from HP or the LG 32MP58HQ-P ($219.00) is also worth considering.
PC monitors with a higher contrast ratio that might be worth looking at include the Wortmann AG TERRA 2446W (10000000:1 and cheaper) or the Acer XB270H ($456.99) (10000000:1 and higher rated).
The 24MT58DF has a pretty average width (554.9 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for the last year.
If you would consider a PC screen with a wider width then you might want to look at the Wortmann AG TERRA 2446W (557mm), or the LG 24M38D-B (556.2mm) which is also cheaper.
