8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most LCD screens of this age and type do not have a built-in speaker. The Asus VS238 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Great monitor, absolutely love it. Considering a second one to run side by side with. I know some people are getting dead pixels but mine came mint without a single defect...

Great Color modes. I use sRGB as the primary and the color gamut is really quite close to the standard, although greens suffer the most (as do most cheapish monitors). The other color modes are for ae
The native resolution looks fantastic, on all 3 inputs: VGA, DVI, and HDMI
This is a great LED Panel for the Price. I have had for 3 months now and it works fine. Display's HD Video's and Graphic insistence games under Windows and Several Linux distributions at Good quality
I get complaints off of friends for the sleek design of it as well. ESPECIALLY when tell people the price I paid for it lol
Doesn't feel sturdy on the stand but it is. Not worth docking an egg over
Stand is terribly wobbly. Normally this isn't a problem if you set it on a firm surface. Pushing the monitor buttons to access the various functions cause the monitor to shake. It quickly fades away,

Just bought this monitor. Looks great. Super light VGA, DVI, HDMI connection. .. that was a big plus for me
Very bright picture. Crisp and for the price you just can't beat it
Fantastic resolution, clarity, etc
The base could be more stable - tightening the screw doesn't do much. More sturdy plastic would be great, but that's just a matter of preference - it doesn't effect how it performs as a monitor
No height adjustments or screen rotation. The monitor is extremely wobbly, and shakes whenever I type
No vertical adjustments, but I knew that before I bought it

In conclusion, the monitor would be great if it were not for this dead pixel staring me in the face for over a year. Best of luck to you...

Has a nice looks to it and it does have a nice colors and decent brightness
Sharp, clear picture
Zero dead pixels
Monitor is fine unless you want to get it fixed under the limited 1-year warranty as the 3 year doesnt apply to rapid replacement at least thats what asus tells me
The display is bright and clear, very high def and great quality. the monitor itself even looks good. hooked it right up and started using it
I was so excited to get this monitor as I had seen a few of them firsthand and I really liked them. As soon as I turned it on my heart sank. A single dead pixel right near the middle of the screen
Because it's one dead pixel and not a string of them I was unable to get a replacement. I just don't see how 200 monitor can have such a flaw and still be sold willingly
It's a little too bright; I fixed that with a gamma adjustment
The stand is, as others have mentioned, wobbly. There's not a lot you can do about it, but so long as your desk is stable, it shouldn't be a problem
I contacted them to get monitor replaced after the screen cracked when I turned it on and was told the rapid replacement actually only is valid for the 1 year limited warranty as it isnt really a 3-ye
