The LG 24GL600F-B has tight arrangement of pixels, resulting in optimum sharpness for reading and office use, but the viewing angles are terrible.
Gamers will love this gaming monitor because of its clear high refresh rate gaming experience.
It does not have a pair of built-in speakers so it not a good choice for entertainment.
Design & Ergonomics
Monitor Type – Flat
Width – 55.6 cm
Height – 41.9 cm
The LG 24GL600F-B has a plain design from the front and the first thing you will notice that this monitor has terrible thick bezels.
It is not a big monitor as such so it should easily fit most spaces. There is a LG logo in the middle of the bottom bezel and stand has a spreaded-leg design. It is hard to tell it is a gaming monitor from the front.
Depth – 18.06 cm
VESA Mount – Yes (100x100mm)
Ports Position – Back-Facing
The back of the LG 24GL600F-B looks fantastic and it looks like a proper gaming monitor from the back. There is a ring in red color on the back with Ultragear logo on the top.
We also noticed there are vents for heat to dissipate. In the center of the red ring, there are ports, and holes for VESA mounting. The ports are back-facing so that should increase the depth of this monitor to certain centimetres.
Thiness – N/A
The bezels of the LG 24GN600-B are very thick and it looks like a vintage monitor. It is not a great choice for multiple monitor setups because there will be black bars.
Weight – 8.16 lbs
The build quality of LG 24GL600F-B is excellent and it feels like a solid gaming monitor. Although it is made up of plastic parts, but there are no gaps and the parts seem very well put together.
It is heavier than our previously reviewed gaming monitor AOC G2490VX. It is also a great choice if you want to check out.
Removable Stand – Yes
Cable Management – N/A
The stand on the LG 24GL600F-B is removable and it need to be removed while mounting purposes. It offers excellent stability against wobbles on the desk,
Unfortunately, there is no cable management hole on the monitor, so it is hard to make a cable-free desk setup with this monitor.
Tilt – 15° Backward, 2° Forward
Swivel – N/A
Height – N/A
Pivot – N/A
The LG 24GL600F-B gaming monitor offers only tilt function, which makes it ergonomically poor.
Its tilt range is very narrow because we have seen monitor offering wider tilt range than this.
Display & Performance
Panel Type – TN
Panel Size – 23.6-inch
Aspect Ratio – 16:9
Panel Depth – 8 bits (6 bits+FRC)
The LG 24GL600F-B houses a high refresh rate TN panel with 23.6-inch screen size and that is great in terms of colors, but the viewing angles are terrible. It is a perfect sized monitor for competitive gaming.
This cheap gaming monitor has a 16:9 aspect ratio panel with panel depth of 8 bits so it can display 16 million colors which makes it a colorful panel for gaming.
Resolution – FHD | 1920x1080p
PPI – 92 PPI
This monitor has FHD screen resolution, meaning 1920×1080 pixels resolution and that results in excellent 92 PPI on the 23.8-inch screen size.
The screen clarity is fantastic because of the close arrangement of pixels, making it a perfect monitor for sharp gaming. It stays easy on the GPU and allows consistent high refresh rate gaming.
Peak Brightness – 300-nits
The LG 24GL600F-B can reach 300-nits at its peak and that feels satisfactory for indoor lighting conditions.
Also, the reflection handling is great because there is an anti-glare coating on the display and it perfectly combats glare.
Contrast Ratio – 1000:1
The contrast ratio on this monitor is 1000:1, which is not that great for dark rooms. Blacks might appear gray on this monitor in the dark.
If you want a gaming monitor for dark rooms, consider the Koorui gaming monitor because it is VA panel monitor and VA panel performs excellent in the dark due to their high contrast ratios.
Viewing Angles (H/V) – 178°/178°
This gaming monitor from LG has poor viewing angles resulting in faded colors from side angles. It is not a right monitor to mount at a height because the top-bottoms viewing angles are also not that great.
NTSC – 72%
The color coverage on the LG 24GN600-B is standard. It is in the range not narrow or neither wide. It is perfect for viewing SDR content or SDR gaming.
Response Time – 1ms
The LG 24GL600F-B has lowest 1ms response time making it perfect for gamers. It offers smooth motion handling with a clear picture while playing motion-intensive games. Plus, the Dynamic Action Sync further reduces the input lag to the lowest for a responsive gaming experience.
Refresh Rate – 144Hz
The LG 24GL600F-B has max 144Hz refresh rate which is enough to satisfy most gamers. It provides smooth gameplay with tear-free and stutter-free experience.
The ASUS VG248QG has higher 165Hz refresh rate than this monitor with a response time lower than this at 0.5ms, so you can also consider that monitor.
Black Frame Insertion – Yes (Motion Blur Reduction)
The LG 24GL600F-B offers backlight strobing technology for motion blur reduction. LG calls in MBR (Motion Blue Reduction) and there is a dedicated mode for it in the OSD menu.
HDR – N/A

Flicker-Free Technology gives consistent eye-strain free viewing experience.
AMD FreeSync offers blur-free gaming experience with low latency and low frame-rate compensation.
Black Stabilizer adjusts the Gamma curve to reveal the details in dark scenes while gaming. Gamers are finding it useful and that is great for night gaming.

Crosshair can be accessed from the OSB menu and it stays in the middle of the screen so that you can do no-scope awping in CS GO.

2x HDMI 1.4
1x DisplayPort 1.2

USB, Other Ports
1x 3.5mm Audio Out
This monitor does not have USB ports, but you do get an audio out port on this monitor.
That’s a Wrap!
We love the gaming performance of the LG 24GL600F-B, but we are sure its TN panel will be a deal-breaker for many, and you will get a decent IPS gaming monitor for a little more price that most of you all would not mind paying. Hence, we will recommend getting an IPS gaming monitor instead of this one, although this is not a bad choice for gaming, but prepare yourself for the terrible viewing angles before making a purchase.
We also think that the bezels of this monitor are very thick, and the overall appearance of this monitor seems outdated which many would not like on the first place.
