Asus VH238H Black 23" Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor w/Speakers

Pros: Purchased Feb 2013 until June 2017. Lasted until then.
3 stars for duration of life as being somewhat in the middle but still...

Cons: Didn't like aesthetics of monitor. Bulky. Menu controls are meh. I had what appeared to be screen flashes and distorted lines constantly throughout the experience of owning this and never RMA'd this unit because it came and went. I stuck with the gritty but ugh..dead a year after the warranty expires..
Very convenient.
Bulky out of box, unimpressive.
Menu controls are meh.
Be prepared for a rough road.
Ill be taking my money to another manufacture this time around.

Other Thoughts: Just dont do it. Find something else.

5 or 6 years, still going!

Pros: Great presets. "Game mode" and "Scenery mode" are definitely my favorites. Scenery mode makes watching videos or playing more cinematic games (Mass Effect, Skyrim, etc) look gorgeous. While Gaming mode doesn't look as stunning, it does brighten the screen up a bit, without making things look washed out. It's helpful for seeing things in darker areas.

Has speakers, for those that want them.

Fantastic contrast. I've always been able to see farther in dark games than any of my friends, and I put the credit to this monitor.

Cons: Thick. The plastic around the screen is pretty thick, as well as the monitor itself. It is an older monitor by today's standards, so take that as it is.

All the buttons fail. The buttons are terrible, to be quite frank. The first year or so, they were great. Very clicky and responsive. After about a year, the power button went out, for the most part. I had to press it at just the right angle, and kind of slide my finger across the button while pressing it. Now it's to the point where I don't even turn off the monitor anymore. I just let it go into it's low-power state. The other buttons wore out over time as well, despite me very rarely using some of them. So I know it's not an over-usage thing. Just age.

Lack of Display Port. Granted, again, it's a pretty old monitor. Though it still bothers me that it lacks a Display Port. I'm just worried the next line of GPU's won't have a DVI port anymore, and I'm personally not a fan of HDMI cables.

Other Thoughts: I'd suggest getting some 'real' speakers to go along with it. Even a pair of $20 speakers have a very noticeable improvement. Though I feel that's to be expected.

I paid around $200 for mine, which was about 5 years ago. I definitely think it was worth it then, and seeing this monitor is down to $130-ish now, it's definitely still worth considering.

I intend to take it apart sometime and see if I can fix the buttons.

If it was just one button that went out, I'd have given this 4 eggs. But having ALL of the buttons wear out, it made me realize it wasn't just a matter of being unlucky, it seems to be a flaw with the monitor itself. I do feel kind of bad about the 3 eggs, but I just can't get past NONE of my buttons working. I'd give it a 3.5 if I could.

Good while it lasted

Pros: It worked and the audio was pretty decent. Very little input lag. Colors look pretty good after calibrating.

Cons: The menu buttons are pretty horrid.

After playing a game on my ps4, I noticed that the screen image shifted into a green tint. I tried to switch cables to see if its a faulty connection but after turning it off and back on, the screen flickered horizontally with green, magenta, and white. I knew instantly it was shot. It sucks to see such a good product not be reliable as my Dell Ultrasharp I bought back in 2012. This product lasted me less than 2 years.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product but be wary that if you need customer support, you cannot simply return or email someone unless you post a scathing review.

It performs!

Pros: Excellent color, simple to calibrate and adjust settings.

Editing this review for follow up. I have owned this monitor since August 2011, and it's still going strong. This monitor has performed in every facet I could have imagined, and the picture is still outstanding and vibrant after 6 years of heavy use. IF this monitor ever dies, I will absolutely be purchasing another (maybe two!)

Cons: Should have bought two.

Easy 5 Eggs

Pros: I bought this in June of 2011. Everything still works. Speakers work, no dead pixels, buttons work, etc. Honestly I'm not surprised, because everything I've ever bought from ASUS, even a nVidia geForce 240 Silent from 2010, still works today. This monitor is sturdy, the audio is more than acceptable, and the picture quality is excellent. I will always buy from ASUS, because I always get my money's worth from their products.

Cons: None.

monitor

Pros: Tons of connectors including HDMI

Cons: I don't think it has a volume control in the menu anywhere. Make it hard to adjust volume of games that are full screen

Overall Great Monitor

Pros: - Great response time
- Decent picture presets
- Excellent picture overall

Cons: - The buttons are hard to see in low lighting, and they take a few days to get acclimated to.
- No height adjustment/swivel, but in this price range that's hard to complain about
- Plugging in cables is painful if you are trying to do this without looking.

Other Thoughts: I love this monitor. I bought one, then bought a second a few years later. I haven't had any issues with either monitor. If you don't care about 144hz, then I have a hard time not recommending this monitor. The speakers aren't the greatest, but they are nice to have on occasion. I use mine primarily for gaming, but I've done graphic design work and watched movies on them and they have been fantastic.
