6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Asus medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all flatpanel monitors Asus is one of the better rated brands.

Has Three Cables Included

The Asus VS208 has a greater number of cables included than most medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years. This PC screen has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the VS208. The cables included "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this LCD screen.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 480.7 millimeters, the Asus VS208 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the VS208. The widths of medium monitors that were released more than two years ago range from 52mm to 6,500mm.

If you would consider a LCD screen with a wider width then you might want to look at the Acer 226HQ[plb_1401247_price] (508mm), or the AOC E2050S[plb_1412284_price] (477.75mm) which is also cheaper.

Light

The weights of medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the VS208 range from 3g to 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. The Asus VS208 is fairly light (only 2.9 kilograms) compared to most of the other similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to the VS208.

Chart Edit

Short

The heights of PC screens that have been around for more than two years range from 41mm to 4,800mm, and the average height is 380mm. At only 295.1 millimeters, the Asus VS208 is fairly short compared to most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that are a similar age to the VS208.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The shallowest PC display that is a comparable age to the VS208 is 12mm deep and the deepest is 560mm. With a depth of only 45 millimeters, the Asus VS208 is quite shallow compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been on the market for a similar time to the VS208.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Asus VS208 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens of a similar age and type to the VS208 also do not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the Viewsonic VA2445[plb_1604989_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The Asus VS208 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC monitors that came out more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

PC screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Asus VS208 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC displays of a similar age and spec to the VS208 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Asus VS208 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other LCD screens that have been on the market for a similar time to the VS208 also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Display Diagonal

Medium monitors that have been available for more than two years have screen sizes of between 28cm and 770cm, and the average display diagonal is 65cm. When compared to other PC displays that have been around for a similar time to the VS208 that we have assessed, the Asus VS208's display diagonal of only 50.8 centimeters is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Asus VS208

Released Over Four Years Ago

This PC screen has been on the market for over four years.

LCD Display Type

The Asus VS208 has an LCD display type which is better than most medium monitors that came out around the same time as it. Most similar spec PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as it have an LED display type.

Alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price], or the Asus VE228HR[plb_1584525_price].

If you would prefer an LCD screen with a better display type then you might also want to consider the Asus VS239[plb_1386925_price] (LED), or the iiyama E2283HS[plb_2323546_price] (LED) which also has a higher rating.
