ASUS VK228H-CSM Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Incredible contrast ratio
Super-bright LEDs
Webcam is fairly sharp
Very lightweight. You'll have no problem moving this
The ports are positioned in such a way that it's really easy to plug/unplug things! Made the setup that much quicker
Beautiful hardware, absolutely stunning to look at!

Cons: The built-in speakers aren't so great. I'd equate them to what you find in a laptop
Almost too bright! I've turned the brightness down to 10 (out of 100) and it's still insane.
WEBCAM DOES NOT MEAN "COMES WITH MICROPHONE"! I and many others have made this mistake

Other Thoughts: In terms of displays, I've never seen something so beautiful, and was amazed at the range of colors it can display! I couldn't be more satisfied unless I could turn the brightness down even further. It really is a fantastic product to have on your desk.

However, you need to understand that the speakers aren't perfect. If you care about audio quality, look elsewhere. More importantly, I learned the hard way that a webcam and a microphone are two separate things. The webcam is quite nice, but make sure you have a microphone available.

When you think about it, you can only expect so much from a monitor. They crammed speakers and a webcam in there, but that's it. I bought this to simplify my desk, and in that regard it's a great success. As long as you know what you're getting, I strongly recommend this
