High benefit-to-cost ratio Posted by: from: Denton TX on -great price -resolution : 9/10 -configuration intuitive -2 monitors; hue/saturation/contrast matching : 9/10 -fairly light mass -mates very well to Ergotron arm -low heat output -warning: cables connect outward (not downward); bad for wall mount -too early to judge reliability(cross fingers) recommend

Good monitor for the price Posted by: from: Clayton, NC on I purchased this monitor as I wanted another 23" LCD to match up with my Samsung SyncMaster (which BestBuy no longer stocks), and although it is only 22", it does visually pair up with my Samsung quite well. I have both monitors beautifully wall-mounted on fully articulated arms that allow for shear viewing pleasure. This Asus is not to be underestimated by someone who may not recognize the name brand as it is simply put, "very similar in quality as Samsung LED monitors and for only a portion of Samsung's price tag". The price was right, and I might add it is one of few "in-stock" monitors that actually has the 4 screw holes for wall-mounted brackets or the like. Seems Samsung is going away from that on some of their newer models now. Color quality is spot on, and comes with quick-set functions for viewing at night, scenery, theatre, game, etc to quickly enable the user to change contrast without fiddling with the adjustments for hours. The design is sturdy, not cheap, and has a built in speaker with 1/8" phono jack on back for input. Great second monitor add-on for dual configuration if you are budget-minded like myself.

Quality product Posted by: from: Pinellas Park, FL on I received my Asus monitor and it works perfectly. I already own one so I knew how well it would perform. I was thrilled when I saw that it was on clearance so I bought a second one at a great price to go with dual monitors. Makes multitasking so much easier without having to constantly switch back and forth between windows on one monitor.

Sleek and Clear Posted by: from: Lewisville, TX on I have nothing to say but good things about this monitor. I bought it back in January 2013 and I love it. Works great. I used to have the oldest monitor ever for the longest time and this to me is amazing. The widescreen is great! This monitor is extremely thin and very light weight. I would definitely recommend this to someone. I'm thinking about buying a second. I have two monitors for work (not this monitor) and when I work from home sometimes, it's a pain to do with one. I got spoiled with two, haha. And now it's even cheaper than it was back in January! I wouldn't think twice about this monitor! :)

Great monitor; I own 2 of them! Posted by: from: New York on A year ago I ordered two top of the line monitors, which turned out to be backordered and I decided to take these, figuring that they were relatively inexpensive and when the other ones came in I'd cut my losses. About six weeks later, when BestBuy called to say that they had come in, I told them that I didn't want them and I have never regretted that decision. I'm a broadcast journalist and use two of these monitors 12 hours a day to select photos, edit video, cut audio and write copy, often all at the same time. I have been impressed by the monitors' excellent picture quality and fast response time, which rivals displays that cost two to three times the price. The displays have been on 24/7 for a year now and continue to work just as well as they did the day I got them. Also, while incredibly thin and light, they are VESA compliant, which allowed me to easily mount them to a dual monitor stand, freeing up valuable desk space. This can be of particular value to those business users working in small cubicles or home users who want to save space or just have a cleaner look. I should also note that this monitor has VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs, ensuring that no matter what kind of computer you have, you will be able to connect with ease. I did take off style points due to the lack of a built-in audio output or USB ports, but both of those are minor points, easily solved with a set of inexpensive speakers and a USB hub. I've had a great experience with these over the past year and hope to continue to for years to come.

Excellent monitor; excellent price. Posted by: from: Excelsior, MN on Very nice monitor--very good price. Completely satisfied. Tried several others and very much like this one. Adjustments face the front (not underneath) for ease--which is much better than those with dials one needs to feel for under the monitor rim. Just a nice monitor for general use and for the price.

Great monitor Posted by: from: Grand Rapids, MI on I bought 2 of these as an alternate for the $1000 each Thunderbolt display for my Macbook pro laptop. I am very impressed. I can't tell a difference between these monitors and a thunderbolt. Great image quality and sleek design are a bargain for this price. Thank you Asus, great product!!

Awesome! Posted by: from: Overland Park< KS on I am building a new rig and saw this on sale. My previous rig has dual Samsungs but my IT guy said to go with Asus. I bought this for my secondary monitor. I wanted 1080p so I can still read the icons. My primary monitor will be a bigger 4K IPS.

Great Monitor Posted by: from: Chicago IL on I am extremely satisfied with this monitor. I use this monitor mainly for playing PS3 games and the picture quality is outstanding. The monitor fits perfectly on my desk. The ability to tilt the monitor was a plus and the headphone input was an even bigger plus. I could hook up my Logitech speakers without needing an audio Y connector because of the headphone input. This monitor is great and shipping was MUCH FASTER than i expected. There is nothing more you could ask for when you have all of these features for this price.

Excellent screen presentation. Posted by: from: Bluewater Bay, FL on My new Asus M51BC-B08 computer came bundled with this Asus VS 228H-P monitor. I'm using the DVI connection, although it also has HDMI and VGA inputs. The 1920 X 1080 screen has a non-reflective surface, thankfully, and I find it superb for photography work. And of course if it is good for that, it will be good for about anything. I have just one real gripe about this monitor, and that is, for me at least, the controls are not intuitive, and therefore, I found it difficult to adjust. In the first place, the controls are six buttons on the bottom edge of the monitor--you can't see them from the working position. Second, the tiny control identifier markings on the front edge of the black monitor frame are in a dark gray color, and cannot be seen in normal lighting. A simple task like adjusting brightness becomes a major pain of going through a menu system, and pushing a number of buttons that you can neither see nor identify easily. Asus can do better, and should, because this is otherwise an excellent monitor. But after all is said and done, once you get it set the way you want it, it's great. I should mention that there are lots of preset modes requiring only one or two buttons that will probably satisfy most users. Another mini gripe is that I had a hard time finding an English manual. The one listed on the Asus website for download was in a format that the computer couldn't digest. But I eventually found one at another site. In summary, this is a fine monitor, and I have enjoyed using it except for the control system, which honestly is not used that often anyway.
