ASUS VN248H-P Slim Bezel Black 23.8
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks nice, big, stand is quite sturdy, and the speakers actually sound pretty good to me, over HDMI.

I like that the connections in the back are vertical so cords don't need to stick out back and the monitor can be pushed closer to a wall.

Cons: No height adjustment.

It comes with a DVI-HDMI cable, a VGA cable, a 3.5mm audio cable, and an MHL-HDMI cable... yeesh. This is 2015. All I actually *want* is an HDMI-HDMI cable :-/

Other Thoughts: I haven't bought a new monitor for personal use since, uh, 2004 ... so my standards may be lower than some!

Foxconn NT-510-A-B-A-NA Intel Atom D510 Intel NM10 1 x 200Pin Intel GMA 3150 Nettop Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Attractive exterior with flexible mounting options (vertical with stand, horizontal with magnetic feet, VESA attachment)
Quiet and low power
* Great price
* Well-supported under Linux
* Broadcom Crystal HD video acceleration
* Reliable wifi (RTL8191SE)

Cons: * HDMI resolution only goes up to 1366x768 rather than 1920x1080 (which is supported by VGA-out)
* 2gb maximum RAM

Other Thoughts: I've been using this as a HTPC/fileserver for over 2 years, currently running Ubuntu Quantal. It handles everything I've thrown at it. Although the CPU performance is underwhelming, the Broadcom Crystal HD decoder works wonderfully with VLC to decode 1080p video with <10% CPU usage.

My only quibbles are with the 2gb RAM limit (bogs down when I open too many tabs in Chrome) and the fact that the HDMI-out resolution is less than 1080p (which is what the Intel GMA GPU is capable of). If you really need 1080p out, use the VGA out instead.

I'd happily buy another!

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's memory, it works, and I got it free as part of a combo deal.

Cons: None.
