ASUS ML249H Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Amazing colors
-Outstanding contrast
-A-MVA panel
-No aggressive Anti-glare
-No Backlight bleed
-True 8-bit colors

Cons: -Some ghosting (not enough to be distracting)
-Monitor came with a slight green tint...I reduced the Green value to 96 in the RGB settings and it vanished
-The "Trace Free" setting doesn't seem to remove ghosting but instead causes some strange color distortions during fast motion.

Other Thoughts: I love this monitor. If I look for ghosting, it is there but otherwise, it is unnoticeable. The colors are accurate and vibrant. The blacks are distinct and inky. The A-MVA panel really sets this monitor apart. I was using an e-IPS panel which had a lot of backlight bleed and bad IPS glow (blacks turn violet at an angle). That monitor also had an aggressive anti-glare film while this monitor has a semi-gloss screen (not enough to reflect images but not non-reflective). This monitor fixed all my gripes with the e-IPS. Also, I used an hdmi switch to plug in my PC, Xbox, and PS3. I would have liked to see DVI/DP but i knew it was just hdmi/vga when I bought it.
My settings are:
Standard Preset
90 brightness (I use it in a bright environment)
80 contrast (default)
R-100 G-96 B-100
Trace-free - 40

NEC Display Solutions EA232WMI-BK Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is a very nice monitor. The construction feels high very high quality and the picture is amazing out of the box. Colors are contrast a great with very minor tweaking (disable ECO + adjust brightness). This is a huge step up from my old TN panel which suffered from massive backlight bleed. Oh and it is IPS!!

Cons: -14ms response time may be a problem for some but as of yet it hasn't bothered me even on fast FPS games.
-very minor backlight bleed that is only noticeable in on a black screen with the lights off. Even then it is not noticeable unless you are looking for it.

Other Thoughts: This monitor is wonderful...I use displayport for my PC and HDMI-DVI for my xbox/ps3 (VGA is useless nowadays). I am not a photo editor or an intense gamer but I occasionally do both and this monitor excels at them! Everything is as it should be and flaws are very minor. All in all this monitor is impressive

Acer S231HLbid Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This is a great monitor! The led back lighting makes the colors stand out and the contrast is amazing. This replaced an old dell 19" 1280x1024 monitor and the difference is stunning.
Also, the multiple inputs is nice...I have my PC on DVI, Xbox 360 on VGA, and my PS3 on HDMI. Great OSD too.

Cons: There was a slight green hue on mine (unlike the blue others have complained about.) This was fixed by setting the green value to 48 from 50... now the colors are great! It is also WAY too bright for me out of the box, I had to squint at it. The power LED is super bright and distracting but was quickly fixed with some tape!

Other Thoughts: Not IPS or VA? Some don't like 1080p on monitors vs 1200p, but I like the fact that almost all devices and media are the correct aspect ratio on this. I HATE black borders on most things. Over all a great monitor once you tweak it a bit.
