4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Have had this monitor for about 5 weeks, works very well for being vga only. Newegg shipping is super fast, usually get items within 3 days.

Cons: Speakers not to great, but really don't use them anyway. Of course this is only a vga, but understood that before buying. Do not like Asus rebate system, see other thoughts on this. The first one I received had a hole punched threw the box during shipping and screen was broken, but Newegg reimbursed everything, and I had a replacement within another 3 days.

Other Thoughts: If buying with the intention of getting a rebate from Asus, be very careful, I mailed all the required materials, and tried to preregister the same day, and when preregistering, it then said I should include a copy of preregistering form with the other materials, which had allready been mailed. The rebate form does not state this, and I expect its their game for keeping the 20 bucks. I have checked their website, and can't find any record that they have it. BEWARE BEWARE- Have never had this kind of problem with any other purchases from newegg or other company, Asus is the only one, and newegg happens to sell their products.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: It was extremely cheap. It is very bright and clear. No ghosting.

Cons: The stand is very poor, but what do you expect at this price? Mine also has a single dead or stuck pixel, but that's not a huge deal. The viewing angles are not good. No DVI.

Other Thoughts: For this price I am happy.

5 out of 5 eggsB-A-N-G for the buck!!

Pros: I did a lot of shopping for a 22" monitor. I looked at Acer, Samsung, and half dozen others. Two monitors came to the top of my list ASUS Vw221s and the ASUS 222u. Not only did the ASUS beat out the other brands in price comparison straight up but they were also throwing in an instant $50 discount and a $20 rebate. So now I was faced with two ASUS models: 222u vs 221s. The 222u cost $20 more because it offers a faster response time (2ms vs 5ms); its screen size is slightly bigger 22" vs 21.6"; and it had the DVI option. HOWEVER, I checked my PC computer and I didn't have a DVI port. I could buy a DVI adapter for an extra $40 to make it work but no thanks. I decided to settle on the 221s. I am extremely satisfied with the 221s model. Due to its slightly smaller screen size of 0.4", it appears that the benefit is a better dot pitch (.277 vs .282) and contrast ratio numbers (5000:1 vs 2000:1). The main reason I purchased the ASUS "name brand" is price and then their good pixel reputation.

Cons: First, Even though the speakers are a mere 1w each, its convenient not to turn on a separate button on separate external speakers everytime you want to hear sound. Its loud enough for everything except gaming and movies. Next, Extreme viewing angles are slightly noticeable on any LCD. Lastly, the 221s is slightly thicker than the 222u.

Other Thoughts: I still give the 221s 5 stars. Asus has 3 year parts and warranty and some of the other brands do not even carry this option. It doesn't say on the spec but the box says "works on Windows Vista". The free shipping just ended any thoughts of shopping elsewhere. However if youre okay with return policy its a home run.

5 out of 5 eggsAs Expected

Pros: Great screen for the price, Crisp image zero dead pixels, Sleek glossy black finish with great display options.

Cons: As was said before the stand isn't very good at all but it doesn't matter to me. It tilts, and thats all I ask for a screen stand.

Other Thoughts: After reading some comments about the speakers I was prepared to purchase some speakers to go with it, but Personally I feel the speakers work very well. They don't get too loud but they do the job as needed.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice LCD

Pros: Nice monitor for mainstream desktop use, clean & clear with NO dead pixels. Well packaged and arrived safely.
VGA D-SUB connecter only, if you need DVI-D, look elsewhere. Decent price with rebate.

Cons: Stands on most of the the newer inexpensive monitors are rather flimsy & offer tilt only!
1 Watt speakers are useless........... IMHO!

4 out of 5 eggsNot a bad monitor for the price!

Pros: Price, Solid construction and 3 year warranty.

Cons: No DVI! Speakers are located in the rear and fire upwards. volume control is kind of a pain but I will be adding 5.1 anyways. A little backlight bleeding on the edges but I am not complaining for the price.

Other Thoughts: You might be better off spending the extra bill or 2 on a better monitor. But if you are on a budget but want a decent large size monitor it is worth a look. I will only be using to surf the net which makes this monitor a great choice for me!

5 out of 5 eggsBuy as many as you can !!

Pros: Excellent picture quality and color depth for most every application. Splendid modes come in handy for quick changes on the fly from work to play.

Cons: No DVI or HDMI interface
Built-in speakers are OK, but far from great

Other Thoughts: Overall, with the current rebate and free shipping, you will not find a better deal for a monitor of this quality anywhere else. I got two words for you - "GO NEWEGG!"

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Great color and resolution for the price. No dead pixels. Movies are decent. Have tried some small-time solidworks applications with an evga gaming video card and was impressed. At the time of purchase the discount and rebate brought the total below $150 with free shipping... gotta love Newegg!

Cons: Stand may be a little wobbly for some... I just don't plan on bumping my computer desk very often.

Other Thoughts: Not a gamer so I can't comment on its shoot-em-up capabilities.
