cinema screen resolution is not 16:9,it is 1.85:1 or 2.39:1.therefore black bars will be there.

Afaik , you can use aspect ratio adjustment or cropping to fill the screen.
VLC has that adjusment using S and C shortcut keys by default.

it is not advisable as it distorts the true picture.cropping black bars simply means zooming on the visible picture while ratio adjustment usually involves stretching/shrinking.

Thanks Nerevarine for the detailed information. I don't have a dGPU (yet). Not planning to buy one either, since not into hardcore games atm.
Hence I will avoid the LG's wide screen monitor. Will go for safer choices.

Yes, not going to crop or zoom the picture. That would be very bad.

I had to goto Nehru Place tomorrow, but not sure whether the market will be open tomorrow since it's Teacher's Day and Janmasthmi.

Public holidays , I am not sure.

Well, Nehru place was open today. And I did buy the monitor. I ended up buying HP 22XW.

I went to Cost to cost and straightaway headed to the monitor section. The picture quality of 22XW was seemingly good but I wasn't able to find the other monitor (BenQ 24 inch EW2440L and Samsung 23.6 inch LS24D390HL/XL). Those were not on display. But I did compare the picture with another AOC 25" monitor. Despite the fact that AOC monitor was bigger, I found that clarity in 22XW was better. Same clip was running on both the monitors but were not in sync for me to directly compare. Hence I requested the guy to pause the clip on one monitor, which he readily complied. So when I say I actually compared the clips I am not making this up.

The fact that I got the monitor in Rs 9440, lower than what it cost to Hrishi, made me finalize it. :p

The white look isn't all that bad. And at my home it looks bigger than what it was looking in the showroom. Here are few pics and album link below:

Thanks everyone who helped me selecting the best 1080p monitor around 10k. It cost below 10k!! :doublethumb: :D

The money I saved in monitor, I bought 4x2GB RAM of brand G.Skill Ripjaw! :D

Congrats!!!
So do you like the color reproduction of 22Xw ?
PS , I paid through card so add 2% extra. I got it for the same price as you but then 2% extra made it reach 9600~.

Do post a review if you like , there are barely any reviews online for a worthy monitor like this.

Well, the picture does look good in this monitor. And compared to the AOC monitor it was a bit sharp. I don't know much about color reproduction, since I am not into Photoshop or designing.

Now that you have mentioned the 2% extra on card, well I had to pay that too. So yes it actually costed me 9440 + 2% = Rs 9629. Should have mentioned that before. :p

I don't know what review I can do except posting pics and saying what I already said in my previous post, still I would think about it after some usage.

Meanwhile if you can tell me the best settings which provide good colors in this monitor that would be great. Since I am not liking the default presets available on this monitor. I selected the "Multimedia" preset where brightness is high. But that was good only for viewing multimedia content. For normal usage, the brightness seems too high. If I adjust the brightness and contrast manually I am not able to get a good balance.

You will have a setting called techni-color....something.
It should be at the top of the menu.
Plus , I turn on the dynamic contrast too.
And yes, the monitor is damn sharp in the price bracket.

I do hate the lack vesa mount though.

Set Technicolor preset and lowered the brightness a bit. Now the picture seems balanced.
Not sure what Dynamic contrast will result into but set it anyways.

Not a lot of people intend to wall mount their computer monitor, so lack of VESA mount isn't really a con. I know of only one person who I have seen using his computer wall mounted. He is [MENTION=26711]ico[/MENTION]. :p

OMG man. I was reading an article on best movies to watch somewhere online, when I accidentally clicked the Show Desktop hot corner My effing new HP monitor, 22XW gave me a mini heart attack.
Suddenly I saw my wallpaper (which is on auto rotate, so I didn't see it coming)..
