ASUS VH236H Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: HDMI with audio, DVI, VGA,and SPDIF, inputs. the colors look amazingwhen compaired to the Dell 23" monitor i have right next to it running off the same quadro video card. every color is just more vivid and richer. the response times are way quicker than the Dell. Overall for the price it is a great deal.

Cons: I've always been a fan of Asus, all my companies Mobo's i use are Asus and i have not had any problems with any of them and they run 24/7 for the last two years strait with the exception of restarts once a week

Other Thoughts: My current rig:

SilverStone Fortress Series FT02S-USB3.0 Silver Aluminum / Steel Computer Case with 2X USB3.0 ports
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Unibody design, great airflow, super huge fans, radatior support. was able to fit a Thermaltake CLW0217 Water 2.0 Extreme/All-In-One Liquid Cooling System with the double radatior in it.

Cons: the 90 degree mobo mount is cool but if you intend on putting the case in a cabinet it makes it hard to get it in bc the cords have to be long enough to slide all the way out.

Other Thoughts: over all a great case, lots of fans and air flow.
