7 Reasons For

Asus LCD Screens Have Good Reviews

Medium monitors produced by Asus have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all flatpanel monitors (not just medium monitors) and found that Asus also has good ratings across its entire range.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many similar spec LCD screens that were launched around the same time as it.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display to this PC screen and we think because of it's better review score, the e2250Swdnk[pl_1364842_price], the U2868[pl_2276998_price], and the I2276[pl_2256588_price] all from AOC is also worth considering.

Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

The Asus VS229 has one of the wider vertical viewing angles (178 degrees) amongst PC screens of this age. The average vertical viewing angle of flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the VS229 is 170°.

Chart Edit

1080p Video Mode

This flatpanel monitor has a 1080p video mode, which is the most frequently found video mode on similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many PC monitors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The narrowest medium monitor that has been available for around the same time as the VS229 is 50mm wide and the widest is 6,500mm. With a width of only 514.1 millimeters, the Asus VS229 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other PC displays of this age and spec.

We compared all the other 514.1mm wide PC displays to this PC display and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] is also worth considering.

Light

Medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the VS229 have weights of between 3g and 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. The Asus VS229 is one of the lighter medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the VS229 (only 3.1 kilograms) amongst PC monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other PC screens that have been available for more than two years, the Asus VS229 does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The Asus VS229 is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to the VS229 are also not 3D compatible.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the AOC D2769[plb_1563236_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Asus VS229 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec PC monitors that came out around the same time as the VS229 also do not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera including the 272P4QPJKEB[pl_2997140_price], or the 241P4QPY[pl_1398366_price] both from Philips.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC displays that were released more than two years ago do not have an integrated card reader. The Asus VS229 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the U2713H[pl_1518815_price], or the U2413[pl_1565290_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Display Diagonal

Across all the medium monitors that are a comparable age to the VS229 the screen sizes range from 50cm to 770cm, and the average display diagonal is 66cm. With a display diagonal of only 54.6 centimeters, the Asus VS229 has a fairly small display diagonal compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit
