I just purchased a W2363D-PF thinking it was the W2363D.

Shoul I be concerned? I've been trying to identify the differences between the two model. The PF has been discontinued, but why? The only differences I can make out are one less HDMI port on the PF, and a USB hub.

Are there any hidden differences?

LG have taken down the spec sheet on the PF's page, and when I use the manual download link, I end up with the non-PF model's manual.

it looks like the pf was discontinued to avoid confusion of 120hz pc lcds that do 3d with 3d vision or an adapter box over dual link dvi-d and 3d lcds that use hdmi 1.4 and have their own glasses.

You mean the W2363D is compatible with 3D Blu Ray players?

Does anyone have a PDF manual for the original W2363D-PF?

"Real 3D panel"?

Further searching revealed a lot of posts where people were saying that the W2363D-PF and W2363D monitors are exactly the same - the PF is just the extended product code.

But why would LG have a separate page for the W2363D-PF, with "Product is discontinued" written in it? Also, the PF feature page claims "USB 2.0 Plug & Play", but I can't find a single image of the monitor where you can see any kind of USB port.

LG still hasn't replied to my question...

The seller told me PF is the extended code, and stands for 'Piano Finish', and LG have confirmed that they are one in the same.

The 'USB 2.0 Plug & Play' must have been an error, or maybe it was referring to the glasses (which don't come with it).
