4 out of 5 eggsSave this monitor for them young chaps

Pros: Great display, colors, etc, solidly built monitor. Some of the cords seemed a bit short but still worked for me.

Cons: For those who have seasoned eyes... I had to bump down the resolution to 1440x900 to make it readable, due to the small physical screen size.

- Typical LCD: Once the monitor isn't running at native resolution it gets slightly blurry, but still very usable. Not surprising, most monitors do this when not at a native resolution.

- The on-screen size feels small when bumping down the resolution.

Other Thoughts: Get a 23' or higher monitor if you are older or need any help reading text on screen.

4 out of 5 eggsAsus has improved in the last four years

Pros: -Matte coat has pretty good consistency, there are very few shades I see disconformities during video panning with.
-Didn't arrive with any dead / stuck pixels and hasn't developed any within the first month of use.
-Unlike a lot of previous Asus monitors I've used, the srgb preset is pretty good, feels relatively balanced and I can see the differences in shade of the whole grayscale rgb range with that preset.
-Asus's on screen display is pretty solid in options, but at this point is feeling dated compared to OSD in competitors monitors, such as Benq.
-The connections are oriented to face toward the back of the monitor rather than bottom. I find this to be convenient for quick setup, but may be a problem for someone looking to vesa mount one of these monitors.
-I've yet to notice any ghosting.

Cons: -The monitor I received does have edge bleed, though is only noticeable in use on the left side, which has five areas that jut out by close to half an inch. Its only noticeable with shades near to black (most grays unaffected). This edge bleed usually only catches the eye with dark vertical panning video.

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor to replace an Asus VH226H that I had bought back in 2011 and had used for around three years until its CCFL backlight went out. As a successor to that, the VS228H-P has improved in almost every way, the only exception being its edge bleed characteristics, which are little more irritating.

2 out of 5 eggsScreen Started Glitching after 1 Month, Broke after 6 Months

Pros: Looked great, supports HDMI, DVI, and VGA. Not a bad price
($140 when I bought it). I would say it's a great monitor but...

Cons: 1 Month (maybe a little less) of owning the monitor, the screen started... glitching. What I mean by that is that there was a 2"x1" rectangle made of squares that flashed radically 80% of the time the monitor was on. It drove me crazy but I just dealt with it (To this day I don't know who I just let it sit there without doing anything. After that time, the RMA expired, so I couldn't get a free replacement). After about 6 months, the monitor flat out stopped working and I tried hooking it up to other computers and trying different inputs, but nothing. The monitor just wouldn't recognize anything that was plugged into it. Like I said before, the RMA was long expired, so I couldn't get a replacement for my clearly defective unit. I HIGHLY urge people to watch out and think twice about purchasing this monitor. I say just go with a different monitor or brand altogether like Acer.

Other Thoughts: Mine didn't come with a DVI cable, (the page says it does) which wasn't a big deal as I used HDMI, but who doesn't want a free DVI cable? I find them useful for older monitors.

5 out of 5 eggsgood for the price

Pros: good screen for the price, looks very nice. good colors, I think

Cons: as the description tells you, it's only 60 hz, and only 21.5 inches, and only 5 ms. id HIGHLY recommend spending the extra $100-$150 to get a 24 inch 1ms 144hz. the bezel is kind of thick so it probably wouldn't be the best choice for a 3 screen setup to game on.

5 out of 5 eggsFor the price? Hard to beat

Pros: Easy to assemble, great picture, easy to access controls, multiple connection options

Cons: None as of yet

Other Thoughts: This has been a great monitor, I've been using it for over 6 months and not a single dead pixel. Just get a good screen cleaner and keep on top of it periodically and the picture has been superb.

4 out of 5 eggsHalf-decent Affordable Monitor

Pros: -Cheap
-Decent quality for the price
-Excellent and accessible menu

Cons: -HORRIBLY wobbly, the stands are absolutely awful
-Not a crazy amount of color depth
-Obviously it's only 1080p, but this is a pretty old model by now

Other Thoughts: I've been running two of these for about 2 years, they're great for productivity that way. My first one was an upgrade from an old 15" CRT, so no surprise that I liked them. One of them has even survived being shot at near-point-blank with an airsoft pistol with minimal colored lines through the screen.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Monitor

Pros: Good monitor, does its job, what else can I say? No complaints. I have 2 now for my dual display and everything is fine, never broke and no problems with it.

Cons: None? The first monitor I purchased ~2 years ago seems to have a bit of a different display than the second one I recently purchased but that is expected given the time frame.

Other Thoughts: People have been saying the base is wobbly? Not if you put it on the right way and properly tighten the screw. If you put the base on backwards it will be wobbly. Did that my very first time for a day until realizing I had it on wrong.
