The LG 25UM58-P is a feature-rich product, and you have plenty of picture presets to choose from. Some of the modes can work for different people, but as always we recommend users to take the time to tweak the settings to their liking because every individual can see shades and saturation levels differently. The black stabilizer also did wonders for rich blacks and grayscale performance but it does have a detrimental effect on well-lit images.
Finally, the LG 25UM58-P is also ideal for productivity since it includes useful features such as picture in picture and picture by picture modes to take advantage of the two HDMI slots. You can run simultaneous video outputs from two different hosts on screen. You also get flicker-free safety and blue light filters to keep your eyes comfortable for longer periods of time. For its price, it is hard to find something to complain about regarding the LG 25UM58-P, but if there was one we noticed, this form factor provides a narrow view of your media since the monitor is only 17 inches tall. Depending on your height and seating arrangement, this could be an issue for you.
