ASUS VH242H

 

The ASUS VH242H delivers good HD image quality at a bargain price.

Very affordable price. Solid dark grayscale and color reproduction. Good motion handling and small text performance. Sleek design.

Limited stand adjustability. No USB ports. Weak light grayscale performance.

Asus VH242HL-P

 

The Asus VH242HL-P is one of only two monitors we tested with a stand that tilts, swivels, and is height-adjustable. The 23.6-inch display is based on a six-bit TN panel with FRC and a native resolution of 1920x1080.   The monitor's default setting...

Stand tilts, swivels, and is height-adjustable; uniform black level; displays text very well

Had to sacrifice brightness for color accuracy; some colors caused blooms of intensity

We didn’t encounter any dead or discolored pixels in our review, but buyers should note that Asus’s three-year warranty kicks in only if there are more than five of the former or three of the latter.

24-inch widescreen monitor

 

The 24-inch class Asus VH242H (the screen actually measures 23.6-inches) is considered to be a strong performer and exceptional value among similarly sized monitors. Excellent colors are not significantly marred by grayscale performance that's...

Good value, excellent color, good performance with fast-moving images, includes HDMI and DVI inputs

Some reliability concerns, no USB ports, image presets of limited value

Asus VH242H 23.6" Widescreen LCD Monitor

 

With Asus's recent Blitzkrieg of inexpensive Eee PC netbooks and nettops, it might be easy forget that Asus also manufactures a full bevy of components and peripherals from motherboards to graphics cards to networking products. Asus also makes LCD...

Inexpensive ; Great Image Quality ; HDMI, DVDI-D, and VGA inputs ; HDCP compliant

Control Button Labels Hard to See ; Built-in Speakers Are No Replacement for Stand-Alone Speakers ; Stand Does Not Swivel ; Display is Not Height-adjustable

Even though the VH242H includes a number of different image-quality presets for various content-type viewing scenarios, we found that most of the time the monitor's default settings were sufficient. That's not to say that tweaking the settings didn't...

ASUS VH242H 24-Inch 16:9 LCD Monitor

 

As more people continue to move into smaller spaces, they are starting to require more from their electronics and computer equipment. It's no longer enough for a product to serve ...

Very attractive design, including cable management ; Ghosting and motion blur are minimal ; Color reproduction is quite good ; All cables (except HDMI) included in the box ; 16:9 aspect ratio great for games and movies

Can appear washed out at times; darks could be darker ; Possible power supply issue ; No additional extras like webcam and mic

In addition to the monitor and stand, you get both a DVI and a VGA cable. This way, you have no trouble getting started with either a digital or an analog video connection. If you want to make use of the integrated stereo speakers, the included 3.5mm...

Good monitor.

 

This is not a TV but it is a great monitor especially for the price at the time.

Great picture, stable base, no pixelation seen in more expensive monitors that came out at this time. Does small icons well, even very small icons, and graphics creation.

Horrible speakers. Large glossy border, that can be a distraction if any light is behind you especially moving lights. HDMI has a large black on screen border that must be removed in your graphic cards software. Monitor has never been seen by any OS I...

Quality!

 

Highly recommend this monitor to anyone happy with 1080p at a size that doesn't dominate your desk space.

12/2/2010 to Present: I bought this monitor years ago. It is my everyday monitor. Since purchase I have had no issues at all. I normally don't expect such life span out of a product like this (Monitors usually need the capacitors replaced on the power...

None to note: My uses are programming, gaming, YouTube.

Bought used from a pawn shop

 

I've been using this monitor for a year and a half and it hasn't let me down! ASUS is a top quality company and I won't hesitate to buy an ASUS monitor as long as they continue their high reliability.

None.

Fantastic for dual setups.

 

I've had these monitors for 3 years in dual setup, the slim profile makes it a great choice for side by side setups as opposed to an angled setup. I've ran these through a 4760 HD, 550 ti, and am now running them on a 980 ti - I'll be upgrading from...
