Most Favorable Review

Excellent ASUS monitor

ASUS Designo MX239H 23" 1920 x 1080 D-Sub, HDMI Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor, IPS Panel
ASUS Designo MX239H 23" 1920 x 1080 D-Sub, HDMI Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor, IPS Panel

Pros: Amazing color accuracy; this monitor has a very wide gamut of color reproduction and is able to replicate colors that other monitors can't. AH-IPS Panel (Advanced High Performance IPS, the most recent variation of IPS technology refined by LG) Excellent contrast ratio Very bright screen Panel has uniform brightness/backlight/color throughout Quick response time with no noticeable blurring/ghosting Not a hint of light bleeding Wide viewing angles Very nice aesthetic design Thin bezel, not truly without a bezel, the screen surface extends past the viewable panel to a thin layer of plastic bezel. Its a very unique look, but still a 1/4" of non-screen surfaces surrounding the panel. Touch "buttons" Built in speakers could suffice, but a stand-alone set is highly recommended

Cons: Speakers are unnecessary Monitor cannot swivel or adjust vertically

Overall Review: My primary use for this monitor is programming, gaming, and watching movies. I purchased this monitor as my primary screen along with another Asus 21.5" IPS. This monitor puts the other IPS to shame, it’s just that good! I'm thinking I should have bought two of these. I don't do any graphic design/artistic work but I have always been very sensitive to color accuracy. I am now a convert. The newer IPS monitors are really worlds apart from TA/VA panels. Some may or may not notice the difference, but for those that want/need a very color accurate monitor, this is it. Side note: to get the most out of this monitor, head over to lagom.nl/lcd-test/ and calibrate the screen. I set mine on sRGB and it passes all the tests with flying colors. Be sure to use DVI or HDMI. Also be sure to set "trace free" to 0 to avoid artifacts for moving scenes. BIG SIDE NOTE: The first one I bought had an eyelash sized hair on the left side of the screen with a cluster of dark pixels on the right side. I RMA'd it and received the current unit (much better!) I didn't take off any eggs, figured it was just a QA anomaly.
