If you're buying monitors based on paper specs ("faster numbers") alone, you're doing it wrong. For starters, the monoprice appears to be a TN panel which are notoriously bad for color shifting at odd viewing angles. There are other important factors too, like ratings (this LG appears to be better liked at a glance), design, features (e.g. PiP/screen split), build quality/construction, input (MP seems very limited where the LG has USB3, 2x hdmi, displayport), etc.

EDIT: Not TN, but VA, apparently. I was mistaken because Monoprice doesn't seem to list the panel type anywhere on their official site or in the official manual, and had to resort to Amazon comments. One claims VA, another claims TN.

The Monoprice is a VA monitor and has 100 hz compared to 75hz in refresh rate. I prefer the way the LG monitor looks. I think IPS displays have superior image quality despite lower contrast ratio. Plus, Monoprice doesn't have the track record or customer support of LG. For me personally, this is a better deal.

I agree on all counts. However, I did look for the panel type on their site & the official manual - Nothing. That's really not an encouraging sign. One Monoprice 35" review on amazon says it's a TN panel, another says it's VA. Panel type is pretty important, not including that in any official documentation is reason enough for me to avoid it like the plague.

And yes, IPS is the go-to for anyone who works with imagery on a professional level. As soon as I had my first non TN panel I've never bought another (TN).

I recently purchased dell u3417w its not cheap but its a very nice monitor. Please stay way from Monoprice 35" Ordered it before the dell and returned it immediately because the screen was cracked when it arrived and the part that was working the picture quality can't not compare with the Dell. BTW, this LG looks pretty nice.

Every monoprice monitor uses different panels. The 35 inch mono price is a VA panel, the viewing angles are not as good but directly in front for the primary user it looks great. It has built in speakers, a croshair for fps games, HDR and can be over clocked to 120hz also it's the same panel as a $900 hp omen 35 inch curved. I did my research on it and bought it for 375. no regrets my friend has this same LG and regretted buying it after seeing my monoprice one
