ASUS VS Series VS247H-P Black 23.6

5 out of 5 eggs ASUS VS247H-P has been excellent from Jan 2012 to Jan 2017 and still great! 02/02/2017

This review is from: ASUS VS Series VS247H-P Black 23.6" 2ms LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 50000000:1 (ASCR)

Pros: Bright and clear. Great picture quality. I've had mine for nearly two years.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I also bought a 23.something" ASUS monitor with the same specs except for being 250 candlepower. Disappointing. Go for a 300 candlepower LED.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent as an HTPC 02/25/2014

This review is from: Intel BOXD54250WYK1 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 NUC Kit

Pros: Really good graphics with Intel HD 5000. It recognized my 50" plasma TV and guided me through a set of what-looks-better and voila! The color was noticeably better. Really excellent. It plays .mkv format videos (30-40GB for blurays) and music over the LAN from my PC to the TV and living room sound system.

Quite responsive as a PC, too, with MS Office installed.

Cons: The limitation is the same for all HTPCs -- the TV as a monitor is across the room. So it's not really good for a PC. If you have one the GB BRIX Pro boxes, they have a lot more power but there's nothing to do with it for me, and I'm just as in favor of overkill as the next computer enthusiast.

Neither the NUC or the BRIX Pro will get above medium frame rates, and a desktop with a graphics card is much superior.

Other Thoughts: Full disclosure:
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB mSATA SSD
2x4GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600MHz RAM
Intel 7260 wifi / bluetooth card
Win 8.1 Pro and Office 2013
Logitech MK700/MK710 keyboard/mouse combo
mini-HDMI to HDMI and mini-Display Port to HDMI 6" cables ($50 together)
Cat 6a ethernet cable

Assembly was 20 minutes. 4 screws and the bottom comes off. Install the 7260 first, then the SSD. The memory snaps into place. My advice is to download the latest BIOS and have it ready on a thumb drive. I did not do this. I first installed Win 8.1 Pro from a bootable thumb drive, but Win wouldn't function properly. So I updated the BIOS and re-installed Win and it worked.

Boot and shutdown are each 8-10 seconds, although it's left on now most of the time.
