5 out of 5 eggsTakes a beating and keeps on reading

Pros: Ok, so I bought this monitor back in like 2003. I know it's no longer for sale, but I had to right a testament to it's labor. 12 years, I've taken this thing to the military with me, over 5 duty stations and 2 countries with me. Packed, unpacked, bounced around, and abused. This thing won't die!! On top of reliability, I'll say easy to setup up, 12 years not one dead or stuck pixel, never a hick-up. Colors aren't the best and the viewing angles are sub par, but I've never had input lag, ghost, blurring, or wonder why the thing isn't working. Rock soild performer.

Cons: Colors are ok, and angles are not the best, but it's a tn panel so those are both given, not knocking eggs for it.

Other Thoughts: Thank you for years of service, but I just upgraded to the ASUS PB298Q 29". I hope for 10+ years from that one.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Awesome size with good colors, no dead pixels, and easy enough to adjust using menu features. I got a decent amount of use out of it. The stand adjusts enough to make for comfortable viewing.

Cons: An on and off again solid yellow vertical line developed on my screen that was superpositioned above everything after about a year and a half. This made reading or working on documents exceedingly annoying and could definitely make you upset while gaming. I sent it to them, they couldn't replicate the issue, sent it back and the screen was good for a little while. After a little while, screen flickered at times like it was having a seizure. Finally, the screen fried itself. Though I got 4 years out of the screen, it was split between good and annoying issues that ultimately killed it.

Other Thoughts: A friend helped me build a computer and this was the screen I chose. Though ASUS is supposed to be pretty tops on their monitors, I was rather disappointed with the sickly life mine displayed and demise after 4 years. I'd have expected more and therefore find myself hesitant to buy another ASUS, especially when their support team didn't try hard to fix the issue and maintain my customer satisfaction.

5 out of 5 eggs100% What I Wanted

Pros: Great colors. Durable. Practically everything you look for when buying a monitor.

Cons: None, other than the fact that the power cable is a little loose so if you accidentally nudge the monitor it may fall out.

Other Thoughts: I use it with my PS3 and I have no complaints. I haven't used the built-in speakers, though.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat screen, Terrible Static issue

Pros: Great screen and resolution, Perfect for a desk area to play games on and use lightly.

Cons: Huge static issue. I have no idea why but every 5 minutes it gets static-y. I've changed the power cord and the HDMI cord 3 times and it just doesn't work out. Maybe I have a loose connection. Everything just gets light and blue.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor if It wasn't so static-y. Sorry for the late review. My Graphics Card came dead on arrival.

5 out of 5 eggsNice looking and reliable

Pros: I've used this for gaming, movies, and general use. I've had it for 9 months without any dead pixels or problems. It's great for the price.

Cons: Stand is not very sturdy and when typing the monitor shakes. I brace it with my stapler. Also the stand does not rotate.

2 out of 5 eggsWas good until it stopped working

Pros: Nice screen
Clear picture on HDMI and DVI

Cons: Blurry on VGA
Buttons stick and don't seem to be of a good build quality
Stopped working!
Poor technical service from ASUS

Other Thoughts: I've owned the monitor since January, 2009 (purchased 12/31/2008) and it was a really good monitor, not excellent but good, until it died about three weeks ago. I turned it off and when I tried to turn it back on, it wouldn't, and it hasn't since. I called ASUS and they weren't very helpful, but I am going to try again and see if I can get it replaced. I also own a VW246H, and if you're going to pick an ASUS monitor, I would pick that one, or one from the VW line over the VH line. The VW246H has better controls, and an overall better build quality than the VH222H. Neither monitor has up & down positioning, only tilting, so that's a minus for both of them.

5 out of 5 eggsGood job Asus

Pros: The monitor itself has a beautiful range of colors (especially for the price). I originally purchased the item to be the secondary monitor, but it quickly became my primary since the colors were amazing. The ports are easy to get to and its not a struggle having to connect everything. It also came with alot of wires for hooking up pretty much anything.

Cons: None for me (although I have never used the sound)

Other Thoughts: I have used Asus in the past for motherboards and the like, wasnt even aware they made monitors, and am very happy with my purchase (newegg shipped fast as always)
