"Great value LED Monitor"4.0 starson by tjm_mgd
Pros: Overall picture quality is great. Handles fast motion surprisingly well. Very bright, colors are quite vivid in the "standard" mode. Includes DVI, VGA and Audio cable. Other Preset modes work really nicely for their intended purpose.
Cons: On Screen Display is not at all intuitive. Took a little while to figure it out since the instructions are quite lacking. As with most monitors, the cables included are far too short for any realistic application.
Summary: I researched quite a few 24 inch monitors before deciding on the Asus. After having the power inverter fail on my last CCFL back-lit LCD, I really wanted to go LED this time. I read a few reviews on the Asus that talked about ghosting issues and I even watched a video on YouTube that showed an example of it. Well I don't know if Asus fixed the issue in subsequent revs of the monitor or if I just got lucky, but I've not noticed any of the ghosting problems describe (and believe me I've tried to replicate it).
Overall the monitor is quite nice, especially for a sub $200 display. It's got a nice simple, understated physical appearance which I prefer. The lack of swivel and height adjust-ability would be a pain for someone that planned to set this monitor on a desk, but most displays in this price range seem to lack those features. I have mine mounted to the wall on a Vesa mount so I have all that ability to adjust built into that mount.
I'm very happy with the picture quality. Netflix movies look terrific, so do DVD movies. I fired up a few with a lot of dark scenes and the contrast is still very good. Fast motion is handled really well, although at 60Hz, some artifacts are still visually detectable.
All in all this is a great monitor for most applications. Hard core gamers will probably want to go up the price range yet, but for most users this would be a great display.
Thanks for your submission!
