Conclusion: Despite its weak greyscale showing, the Asus MX239H is a capable 23in IPS monitor. It offers rich colours and very good off angle viewing performance, and you get a pair of HDMI ports, which is nice if you plan to use the monitor with a gaming console or an external Blu-ray player. That said, the funky function buttons are a bit of a nuisance, and a more ergonomic stand would be nice.
Pros: Good colour quality and viewing angles, Stylish design, Two HDMI ports
Cons: Weak dark greyscale performance, Limited ergonomic adjustments, Erratic control buttons
