As the LG 24MP68VQ is at 160 pounds / 160 euros somewhat more expensive than its little brother, we also expect something extra. The connections at the back are the same and as much as we value the Vesa mount option, the four extra screw holes do not contribute to the look. The front is better looking than the previous model’s with more modern, thin bezels and a flowing line bottom bezel. However, here too, the plastic is reflective which can be less appealing to some.
Looking at the test results, they are higher than those of the cheaper model, but that’s about all we can say about them. The contrast only good for the third from the bottom spot, the minimum brightness is too high at 70 cd/m², the colour temperature is instead too low, but the colour and grey are displayed slightly better. This still means that we also see this model at the bottom end of the graphs. On the positive side, the power consumption is lower than that of the 24MP58 and the uniformity is also better. Somehow, the viewing angle from above is less good though.
