      Nice monitor

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      I love this Asus monitor. Such an improvement over the old style box monitor I had been using for years. It is a good size for my computer table, fairly large for good viewing, but fits well next to my printer. My only complaint is that so far, I have not discovered how to adjust the brightness level. The menu button on the bottom takes you to the area, but the brightness line is not accessible. Very frustrating! Went to Best Buy for a demonstration on one of their models, but it didn't help, still can't adjust the brightness. I am beginning to think it is not me and that line is just not available for adjustment. Otherwise, I am enjoying the nice pictures and color of the screen. Maybe I should just wear sunglasses, idk

      This ASUS VS229H-P


      This is 1 "Awesome" monitor - "Thanks ASUS"!!!! But, I had an issue while using an HDMI cable with this monitor, would flicker, blink and sometimes the screens colors would be distorted. Come to find out - it was the "CHEAP" HDMI cable I purchased on eBay, so I purchased a "New" PNY - 6ft - Thin - HDMI Cable - Part No. C-H-P10-A06-H at my neighborhood Best Buy here in Daytona Beach FL. - Now I don't have that problem anymore. All is Good Now, Thanks ASUS for making "Kick Ash" monitors and Thanks Best Buy for "Selling" ASUS products......

      Very good!


      The only complaint I have is this monitor is compatible with hdmi, dvi, and vga. My graphics card is also compatible with all three, but for some reason I could only get vga to work. HDMI wouldn't fit the screen (Ive looked everywhere to fix it but I cant) dvi isn't properly fit either it goes over the boundaries, but VGA fits perfectly, it's weird. But the quality is spectacular, and it doesn't ghost at all.

      Great, right out of the box.

      Attach the stand, plug the cables in correctly and that's all there is to it. When you turn it on from being off, it automatically tests the light around it and self adjusts. I haven't made any manual adjustments. I use web sites with varying backgrounds, a graphic one with a black background, and spreadsheets with white backgrounds. I haven't tried watching a full HD movie yet.

      What a deal!

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      This is the best monitor with an hdmi port for its price awesome clear hd pictures and gaming. sleek design, super slim, although the stand could be a little more sturdier but it really isnt a big deal at all. for $150 you cant go wrong.

      Easy to see, crisp images, awesome color & details

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      This was a major upgrade from the old style clunky monitor for me. Screen adjustment buttons are located along the right side bottom edge of the screen & are easy to hit by mistake when moving the monitor, be careful. Color, detail is wonderful. However, paper work instructions on set up & adjustments was hard to understand for a newbee.

      Great monitor

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      My son built his own gaming computer and needed a monitor...this one is perfect. Its not to big, your eyes can only take in so much and a larger monitor would have been flashy but not sensible. The images are crisp and saturated with color. Price was good, especially since Best Buy does price match. Asus is a good product at a good price.

      IPS display is excellent

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I like the IPS display and it is big enough if I want to connect my work laptop. Good viewing angles. Had this for more than 10 months now and faced no problems at all. Addition of an HDMI cable would have been nice, I had to buy one as it did not come standard.

      ASUS ML238H Review
      ASUS ML238H is a great full HD monitor with good looks and decent peformance for its price of Rs.10,600. The colours were rendered well and we found the sRGB mode to be the best amongst others. Readability of text was quite good. We were put offFull Review
