A stunning monitor for a low price? This is no fantasy: Asus's 23.6" LCD doesnt disappoint. For as little as $170, you too can purchase this amazing model. Go ahead and compare it to other monitors from different brands that are the same price, or size. There is no competition.
The VH242H has 3 video inputs: standard VGA, higher quality DVI, and the now common, ultimate-res HDMI. Not many of us have pockets as big as our beds, and even less of us have the time or space to buy and mount an expensive HD t.v. If you have at least a moderately equipped computer, a gaming system, or cable box that you want to enjoy, look no further. You cant exactly call over all your neighbors and comfortably watch the big NFL game from a sofa, but then again, you sure can try. Asus' monitor is fully equipped to handle all your viewing needs.
Few drawbacks, if any, can be found. If you're into the sort of thing, you can't swivel the monitor, but it does tilt up and down a few degrees, and you can always put it on a rotating platform. Cable management isn't much of an important factor either, but there is a decently sized hole on the back of the monitor's arm for some arrangement. Perfectionists and anyone bothered by color may be offset that the power button is orange, compared to the rest of the glossy black, but again, it's a nice touch. Of course, don't expect that you'll be going green running something this size. You'll be eating away a nice, approximate 55W while in use. Make sure to have a surge protector!
If your still unconvinced, here's some incentive: The VH242H has two built in stereo speakers, located on the back. They, like the rest of the monitor, perform well for the average video, but don't consider them a replacement for a normal stereo or home theater setup. The monitor runs at 1920 x 1080 pixels, with full HD 1080p support. Being an LCD, this monitor can be used to play regular shows. The color setup is 24bit, for a range of over 16 million colors. And, finally, the display ratio is 16:9. A.k.a., it's widescreen. Oh yeah. Did I mention the monitor is a pretty black?
So I tell you again: Asus' VH242H is one fantastic piece of work.
I have to say it doesn't get much better than the Asus vh242h for the money. If you're looking for a 24" monitor on a budget, this is the way to go. You'll find rich deep colors with great detail. The monitors work well for video and are decent for gaming. Text is easy to read thanks to the small pixel pitch. I run 4 of these on my MacPro off nVidia GeForce graphics cards and the quality is better than the comparable ViewSonic monitor (my Asus monitors replaced 4 vx series ViewSonics). The Asus monitor is light weight so if you're running a custom mount or any other configuration other than the factory mount, you'll feel safe. I've read a couple other reviews online that complain of dead pixels, but I've ran my 4 for over a year now and haven't had any issues. The monitors are great for close viewing, which is important when you're running 1920 X 1080 resolution. About that, I would like to see a 1920 X 1200 version but not holding my breath for that. The hdmi inputs are a nice touch if you want to connect a PS3 or other device into your computer monitor as a double duty. I set up a friends dorm room using this monitor as a TV/Computer monitor/game monitor. It works 'ok' at best for across the room viewing, even though the room is only 10' X 10', but that's expected for a 24", but I'm a videophile and have a passion for large (92" home theater, 55" living room monitor). The size was good for my friend, and the price was perfect. You'll be hard pressed to find a monitor better than the VH242H in the price range.
This 24 inch beast is amazing for the prize. Beautiful, clear and crisp matte screen shows off what ASUS is all about. The resolution just brings everything to live, even if you're only using DVI. I would recommend this to anyone who's on a budget. I myself am saving up for a second monitor. There is no better way to program than with two of these screens. Buy it, you wont regret it.
I bought 3 of these monitors for my Eyefinity (triple monitor setup). Each monitor arrived in perfect condition. No dead pixels or problems of any kind. The monitors look awesome side by side and fit together nicely. When not using my triple monitor setup as one giant screen, I use one of the monitors as a TV. Yes I know it doesn't have an HDTV tuner, but my cable company (Comcast) provides a HD cable box that has an HDMI out. Simply connecting this HDMI port to the monitor gives you HD picture on the monitor and the sound is fine. No problem switching from the HDMI source to the source for the computer. Works perfectly.
This is my 1st large flat-screen monitor, and I got a good deal on it. Once I figured out how to use it, it's been great. The only downer I have found with it is that the control buttons are not lit up like other monitors I'd seen- in fact, it was an unpleasant surprise. I had to use a flashlight to find a particular button. Once I got used to it though, it was fine; now I can do it by feel. I would recommend it.
