ASUS VS24AH-P Black 24
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Update to Thursday’s Asus VS24AH-P monitor review. 06/29/2014

This review is from: ASUS VS24AH-P Black 24" 5ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 300 cd/m2 80,000,000:1

Pros: VGA & DVI yield excellent display.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I disconnected all my computer equipment and set it on the floor so I could clean off and re-oil my Oak desktop surface. When I put everything back together I had proper sound through the Asus monitor. I am not sure why.

Removing power = hard monitor reset?
Re-seating audio cables? -Doubtful since I tried multiple cables including the one that is working.

I wiggled both ends of the audio cable and couldn’t produce an intermittent. I tried a second cable and it appeared to seat correctly and produced proper sound through the monitor.

I’m at a loss as to why it suddenly started working but I’m glad it did. I will contact Asus if it acts up again

ASUS VS24AH-P Black 24
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Update to yesterday’s Asus VS24AH-P monitor review. 06/26/2014

This review is from: ASUS VS24AH-P Black 24" 5ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 300 cd/m2 80,000,000:1

Pros: VGA & DVI yield excellent display.

Cons: HDMI audio pass through problem is with the monitor. I connected my computer with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 HDMI capable video card to my Samsung UN46B-8000 TV. The TV had plenty of volume.

Next I tried a computer with NVIDIA GeForce 9400 HDMI capable graphics built into the motherboard with the Asus monitor. Again sound through the monitor was too weak to be useable.

To eliminate a compatibility issue with NVIDIA I also tried a computer with an ATI Radeon HD5570 HDMI capable video card. This combination actually gave a little more sound output but the speakers still had to be turned up so much that the white noise was annoying.

Other Thoughts: Yesterday under Cons: Monitor wobbles on the stand

I didn’t have the tab on the end of the monitor’s neck seated in the base. Hooking the base over the tab & tightening it down correctly provided a lot more stability. More than adequate for this light weight monitor.

ASUS VS24AH-P Black 24
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: My Samsung 244T died yesterday morning (backlight wouldn’t come on). Ordered a new Asus VS24AH-P from Newegg Business yesterday afternoon and it was delivered this afternoon! 5 Stars to Newegg for speedy delivery.

Beautiful display with HDMI cable connected. Everything worked correctly with Ubuntu 12.04 & XP MCE. Windows 7 not-so-much (see cons).

Cons: Monitor wobbles on the stand.
No HDMI cable supplied.
No audio cable supplied (may be needed, depending on your setup)

When I hooked-up the Asus monitor with an HDMI cable Windows 7 automatically switched the playback audio to “VS24A-1”. To hear audio, you then need to connect a 3.5 mm stereo cable between the jack on the back of the monitor and your speakers. The monitor volume by default is set to 50% but even after entering the menu system and adjusting it to 100% the volume was still way too low to be useable. Don’t know if my new monitor has defective HDMI in to audio out circuitry or my NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 is outputting a really weak signal. I’ll try the computer with an HDMI input on my Samsung UN46B-8000 TV later and contact Asus if the TV has proper volume.

Other Thoughts: As I mentioned above, with the audio processor on the Video card enabled and adjusting the monitor volume to 100% the level was still too low to be useable. To work around this issue and not have to switch my audio cable when I booted into Ubuntu or XP I set the default audio path back to my soundcards speaker output.

1. Right-click the volume control icon on the bottom taskbar and click on "Playback Devices" to open the pop-up window for sound options.
2. On the "Playback" tab, select "Speakers" and then click the “Set Default” button.
3. Click "OK" to save the changes

This will reset the sound back the way it probably was before hooking up the monitor with an HDMI cable.
