Summary: Pros: cheap, easy to setup, light, and doesn't look too bad. Cons: Some say stand can by unstable, large bottom bezel, no VESA support I've looked at about ten different LED LCD monitors around the $200 price range, and eventually settled on the ML249H. I wasn't looking for a high-performing monitor for color-sensitive work, but I am picky about the electronics I buy. I wasn't looking for a primary monitor either, but if it performed well enough, I would swap.
Summary: This is a great monitor for some things. Not so great for some. What its great for Movies : the VA panel really improves the contrast ratio and movies look much better than on my other TN panel monitor Multitasking : lots of space to work with. Looks : fantastic looking monitor. The led controls takes a bit to get used to but they are very well designed and responsive.
Summary: Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase. The monitor is sleek, looks good sitting on a desk, and has no major flaws. The color rivals the most expensive monitors I have seen, and the base is sturdy. Most things about this monitor indicate that it is well made. A few negatives: 1) It has HDMI and VGA inputs, with an audio output for the HDMI. It does NOT have DVI...probably not a huge issue as you can use a converter to HDMI. 2) It doesn't have speakers.
Summary: Nice monitor but could have used a 21 inch instead. I am having display problems with existing setup which I might have to upgrade to a standalone graphic card. The font is small and hard to see if you have eye problems. Not fully using the entire screen during normal operations. If I could send it back I would have. Amazon shipped this purchase fast and I have never been disappointed with them. Good service.
Summary: ASUS divides their support across there multiple product lines. My experience with the LCD Display support for this unit was low-rate, i.e. crap. With my ATI RADEON 4670 this monitor would not scan correctly at the manufacture's recommended resolution of 1920x1080 using HDMI-DVI cable supplied. The display only utilized approximately 80% of the usable screen at this resolution.
Summary: beautiful clear picture with perfect color.. Windows told me I had a HDMI problem; and I did. My old monitor did not have a working DVI/HDMI ---- got a new puter and all is well. Had some difficulty using the touch buttons on the panel; so I called ASUS; they helped me navigate the options/settings.. Actually , if I had left it alone, it would have been fine; the monitor's default auto/adjustemnets are good---looked great after just simply plugging in and turning on.
Has lots of potential but underwhelming in the end

Summary: Pros: VA panel means much better viewing angles than TN panels,also has great blacks and no back-light bleed Cons: Only cover 86% of sRGB color space, cannot display reds properly because of this, calibration can correct this to some extent but then colors look dull. Also has very significant banding issues, surprisingly much more than my old 23" Samsung TN monitor (may be not so surprising as the Samsung covers 96% of sRGB color space).
1920x1080 Monitor to make me switch from 1920x1200
22 July 2011
Summary: I have long bought only monitors with 1920x1200 resolution, in the 24" + category. I bought this one based on the price, and to see if I could live with losing several lines of resolution. (I do a lot of things that make use of every part of my screen, so I didn't want to give any up.) This was to work as a second monitor, so screen space was not as critical for me. After seeing it hooked up, I have been considering switching my main monitor to this as well.
Summary: GENERAL I debated whether to get the speed of the ML248H or the higher contrast of this ML249H for some time. There weren't any reviews yet of the 249, and I wasn't able to find either in a store for serious scrutiny. Owners of the ML248H were very happy with their 2ms units. I don't play games, but I do edit video. I decided to go for the contrast ratio, hoping it was for real, and hoping I wouldn't be dinged by the slower redraw stats posted by the factory.
Summary: The image quality is not as perfect as my HP LP2475w that has IPS matrix (costs 3 times more), BUT it is so much better than my other Dell that I purchased a month earlier for 290.00 I use it with my Macbook pro, I did some color correction. I am very satisfied with this purchase. You will not find a 24" monitor of the same picture quality for the same or cheaper price.
