    I ordered two of these and a dual monitor stand. After much research I had a few hesitations about ordering these as they are the same hardware it appears as the VS238H which as a lot of reviews here and on new egg.

    So to address the complaints I saw in 1% of the reviews.

    First complaint I saw was the stands. I can see how the stands could leave a little to be desired but these things are so light and thin a more substantial base would look out of place. I personally wouldn’t let this take away from the monitor. Since I am not using the included stands that is where I will leave this.

    The second issue I had seen people complain about was the uneven back light. If you look for it in darker modes under motion you can see it a little. Still nothing I would choose not to buy it over, and maybe they refined it in the VS238H-P from the VS238H.

    The third issue I had seen on other reviews was color, like most LCD’s its not true to life, but with some effort on the adjustment it looks great.

    The back light at 100% is too bright for my taste, so turning it down to about 50% is where I like it.

    Motion is smooth, fonts are crisp. I’m using a modified graphics driver that allows me to set the resolution over VGA to full 1080p I had seen some people complain that it wasn’t as crisp using VGA but I think that is a driver/video card issue (or user error) more than a monitor issue. At 23 inch 1080p is the perfect size the fonts a good size, my laptop has 1050 vertical resolution on a 15 inch and it can make things too small. I wouldn’t go any bigger without going to a higher resolution which is hard to find. However use DVI if at all possible and if using dual monitors make sure to use two DVI not a VGA and DVI.

    The backs are a carbon fiber style texture which look good (I could see it collecting dust though). The front bezel is piano black (glossy) I will never understand this trend, but in my set up I have no light behind we to deal with.

    For the price these can’t be beat, if you are a high end graphics designer or photo editor you should look at a higher price point. Programmers, CAD, data entry, web browsing, gaming, and just about ever other use these are perfectly fine. I do not have any stuck or dead pixels that I have noticed.

    I’m not sure you could improve this monitor without greatly increasing the cost.

    ***UPDATE***
    If you are having issues with the font try different view modes the Scenery modes don’t do fonts justice.

    This review is from: Asus VS228H-P/VS228 21.5-Inches Led Backlight Widescreen Computer Monitor (Personal Computers)
    This monitor seems to be manufactured by different companies even though they have the same ASUS branding and model number. I ordered two of these monitors and one had the colors spot on with those on my laptop display while the other had washed out colors and reds appeared orange. I couldn’t fix the washed out colors with any of the settings provided by the monitor nor manually changing the RGB parameters on the monitor and my NVIDIA settings. I promptly decided I couldn’t deal with that and I returned the monitor with the washed out colors and received another one without any hassle. Amazon was great at sending me another monitor as fast as possible without any gimmicks. The two monitors I have now are great and colors are the same. I noted differences between the two monitors with the same model number. I will describe the good monitor first and the bad monitor second. The images will also be in the same order.

    Packaging
    1.) Good: Handle on the packaging box is white. Bad: Handle is black.
    2.) Good: Styrofoam protecting front and back of monitor. Bad: Styrofoam protecting top and bottom of monitor.
    3.) Good: Quick Start Guide for VS228/VS229/VK228. Bad: Quick start guide for VS228/VS238/VS247

    Monitor
    1.) Good: Power LED is dark blue and dim. Bad: Power LED is light blue and bright.
    2.) Good: Bottom of base is half metal and half plastic Bad: Bottom of base is all metal
    3.) Good: Menu is smaller and not that bright Bad: Menu items are bigger and bright
    4.) Good: Monitor is physically taller Bad: Monitor is physically shorter
    5.) Good: Awesome colors Bad: Washed out colors and reds appear orange
    6.) Good: When no signal is present blue screen is a dark blue Bad: Blue screen is a bright blue.
    7.) Good: No effect on ASUS logo when turning on monitor Bad: ASUS logo appears from center towards the outside

    Aside from this small setback, the monitors are perfect for my setup. They have nice colors and work great with anything I throw at them.

    Great monitor for gaming and movie watching!!!, December 21, 2011

    I bought this monitor about 2 months ago and I have to say that I’am quite pleased with it. The colors on it look great after calibration. The monitor has a fast response time and low input lag. The design is aesthetically pleasing, though it has a somewhat cheap feeling to it. The monitor has 1 VGA, 1 DVI, a headphone jack (Headphone jack only works with HDMI) and an HDMI input. Out of the box it includes all the cables necessary for connecting your equipment except an HDMI cable. I mainly use the monitor with my Xbox 360 via HDMI and it looks great. I originally thought that 24″ was going to be too big, but it fits perfectly on my desk with just barely enough room to spare with the shelf above the monitor. The monitor also comes with a 3 year warranty from Asus so I have peace of mind about my purchase. I highly recommend the Asus VS248H-P and will definitely continue shopping with Amazon.

    Since the monitor doesn’t come with an HDMI cable here are some below.

    AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable (6.5 Feet/2.0 Meters) – Supports Ethernet, 3D, and Audio Return [Newest Standard]

    Mediabridge Ultra Series – High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet – (6 Feet) – Category 2 Certified – Supports 3D & Audio Return Channel [Latest HDMI Version Available]

    I personally bought my HDMI cable from Monoprice. I don’t recommend ever buying an HDMI cable from a retail store because they are overpriced and will not perform any better than a $10 HDMI cable bought online.

    EDIT: I have had this monitor for just over a year now and it is still going strong. Very happy with my purchase and I don’t think I could have bought a better monitor than this one for the price I paid back in October 2011.
