Worth the price ... for this "crossgrade" 12/23/2013
Fearing that 4:3-format monitors are going the way of the buggy whip, I bought a couple of these monitors based in part on these NewEgg reviews. (I bought them elsewhere to save some bucks).
The goal was to replace Acer AL-1916 monitors, which only display a small range of grey shades (everything between 0% and 12% grey is displayed identically ... and is even then, only visible when looking obliquely at the screen of the Acer).
Well, the Acers are going on the shelf (for insurance, don'cha know), and in short order, all of our monitors are being replaced with these bright ASUS VB198T-P monitors!
If you don't want to be forced into wide-format display purchases in the future, or are just looking for a very good 19" LED monitor ... then go for it. The OEM packaging is top rate ... all cables are included (VGA, DVI, audio, power).
19" is the largest model. 21" at the same (or greater) resolution would be ideal.
I suspect I missed the sweet spot on the price of these monitors. Something tells me the price will go up, before going down ...
