2 out of 5 eggsTerrible for Text and Edges

Pros: Color reproduction; motion video rendering; brightness and contrast.

Cons: Dreadful sharpness; terrible horizontal/vertical sync at native resolution; random distortion of text characters, dialog boxes edges, and any fine lines.

Other Thoughts: I suspect the VX228H is ideally suited for use as a gaming monitor, video editing workstation secondary display; or a dedicated video monitor (connected to a motion video source).. In these environments, the VX228H color reproduction, brightness and depth are all quite good. I support my hunch with tthe fact that the monitor has no DVI input (but includes two HDMI), suggesting to me this is a "TV"-type display rather than a general use computer monitor.

For when used as such, text appears splotchy, distorted, or blurry in random areas about the monitor--as if the resolution is mismatched against the VX228H native resolution. I wrestled with settings on both the monitor, the OS app, and the VDA app to no avail. A call to ASUS support resulted in the usual cursory (but thorough) settings checks, though to no avail.

I made the egregious noob mistake of RMA'ing the monitor to the manufacturer rather than Newegg. If and when ASUS support returns my "perfectly functional monitor" to me, I will summarily RMA it to Newegg for refund and try a different display product.

I am genuinely disappointed. I based 90% of my decision to purchase this monitor on the many positive reviews that precede mine. None of the poor reviews mention the problem I experienced, which suggests to me that I received the one monitor with an H/V sync problem.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Pros:
- 1 m/s response time!
- Perfect size
- Crystal Clear Quality
- Sleek Design
- VERY Lightweight
- Easy to use
- Easy to Set up

Cons: Cons:
Well like everyone has stated in the previous reviews the built-in speakers are absolutely terible. Aside from that there are no problems.

Other Thoughts: But honestly your desktop set-up shouldn't be relying on built-in monitor speakers. You should have a 5.1 Surround sound set up or a good headset for your audio.

Overall VERY happy with this monitor. It came in perfect condition granted the box was all scuffed up and dirty. But that's to be expected when it's being delivered half way across the country to where I live (Texas). The monitor only comes in the Asus monitor box and nothing else. So don't expect it to come with like bubble wrap around it or anything. Yes the monitor at first was hard to adjust (it felt like it was stuck) but like others suggested just give it some pressure and it will budge and after that it will adjust with no problems.

Plan on buying a second one soon for dual monitors. This is definitely worth the price.. It's dirt cheap and the specs are phenomenal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor!

Pros: Very good display.

Cons: My fault for not checking. I got this for my sister, was going to use it with an Intel NUC, but didn't check and it has no VESA mount on the back.

Other Thoughts: Saw this as a customer choice award winner. Since I own another ASUS monitor that was replaced 2 years and 8 months after purchase under warranty, I jumped at it. Despite not having a VESA mount, this monitor is an exceptional value and has outstanding visual quality.

If this meets your needs (size, price, features) you will not be sorry purchasing this monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, 5 eggs

Pros: This is a GREAT product. Asus continuing my brand loyalty with another awesome piece of hardware.

-Beautiful image
-Looks great and haven't had any issues with it (i.e. dead pixels, etc)
-Comes with all necessary (and additional unnecessary) cables for easy connection!
-Internal speakers! A lot of people put this under the negatives because YES they aren't that loud and the quality isn't the best but what do you expect from an LED screen of this size? It's good for a standard speaker ( and since I'm a gamer I use headsets most of the time anyways) serves purpose nicely.
-Great for GAMING! Great screen settings/options to make any game or background or webpage look stunning. Super low delay for minimal input lag.

Cons: Honestly, I'll just put ONE thing in this section and it's about the internal speakers. I personally think they are a nice addition to the product and they serve my needs, but anyone that's into gaming you do NOT want to use this as your primary speakers. Everything else is great once again 5 eggs!

Other Thoughts: My others thoughts are to address the "manufacture issue" that several people claim to have. While unboxing, the mount will be bent at a certain angle and there is no visible "hinge" that you can see clearly. This may make one think that it is permanently stuck in a downward facing position. Elbow grease, guys! Don't go too crazy, but put a (little) bit of force behind it because it bends! I was cautious of this possible defect when I bought the product but realized that there was a hinge there! Take this into consideration when buying and don't discount it as a manufacturer error too quickly, maybe your hinge is just a bit stiffer!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing. buy it now!!!

Pros: Amazing monitor. Great and realistic outside lights. The sun in games are super bright.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I use this monitor for gaming. And I notice that while not gaming some dark images have blotches. But in game I get the greatest looking shadows with amazing light effects for a profound gaming experience. I play counter strike global offensive and coming from a 16ms monitor I am now able to make flick shots without completely tearing my screen and I am able to see people much more smoothly. If you are an fps fan and are skeptic of buying a 3 star monitor, keep in mind most of the old reviews were for bad stands and speakers. This is the greatest monitor ever and I wouldnt have bought another. Unless it was the 144hz by asus.

3 out of 5 eggsedit to previous post

Pros: Said I would update when replacement monitor showed up.....

Monitor arrived in function condition the SECOND TIME around and I have not encountered any problems yet.

Cons: It took roughly 2 weeks to get the replacement order back.
Have not had a problem with asus until this monitor showed up at my house broken. now it has forced me to reevaluate buying from them in the future.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was very helpful and payed for shipping the replacement both ways. bigup to newegg.
asus service was pretty horrible though, they told me to put oil on this faulty arm stand to loosen it and kept telling me I was wrong and that it wasn't broken. I repeat...asus told me to put oil on a brand new out of the box product. Just unreal.

Yes Newegg. No Asus.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: none as of yet

Cons: Monitor just arrived with a faulty stand arm. when on a flat surface it is stuck angled down at a 45 degree angle facing the desk. Any further pressure to adjust the monitor causes the whole back panel to flex. Sending it back...we'll see how long it takes to get a functioning product.

Other Thoughts: Will update if my issue is fixed otherwise until then this may not even deserve the 1 egg I gave it.

2 out of 5 eggsHanging it's head in shame

Pros: I was able to build my computer with it and install Windows, which has kept me occupied until tomorrow when I can go out and buy a different monitor (and unfortunately probably pay more than I would've on Newegg, but a computer needs a monitor!).

The monitor itself would've been sufficient, though I must say that after actually handling the monitor, I don't think I'd want a non-defective one.

Cons: The monitor was defective. The "arm" piece attached to the monitor itself would not move. The monitor is supposed to tilt up and down - not only did mine not tilt at all, but it was perpetually facing down at about a 30 degree angle. I had to sit on a very small chair just to see it while I was building it. I called Asus support, described the problem, and then was told to call Newegg.

Other Thoughts: Thankfully, Newegg is super rad. They told me I could send it back, on their dime, and get a full refund, not 45 minutes after I discovered the monitor was defective. This guy Dave really helped me out, I'll always be purchasing from Newegg going forward.

Really surprised because Asus makes the motherboard I got (Hero), and the thing is absolutely awesome.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Mec,
