Summary: This is a great product, which is something I've come to expect from Asus. The things I'm sure you are worried about are picture quality and I'm happy to report that this is one of the best monitors I have used. It's screen is very bright due to being LED backlit (yes, the title says it LED, but it's actually LCD with LED backlighting which looks fantastic, so there's no need to worry about that) and the picture is crystal clear, with no mirroring issues or dead pixels...
Summary: No issues to report. The speakers are weak, but that's what I expected out of a paper thin monitor. Plus who doesn't have a pair of secondary external speakers this day and age. I mean considering how cheap this monitor was, if you don't already have a pair, throw down a few extra bucks and get yourself a pair. Anyway, this monitor hit the spot, visually.
Summary: Nothing but good things to say about the picture and the service from Asus. But, the on-board speakers are weak and barely adequate. Additionally, the speakers suddenly stopped working about 24 hours after I set up the monitor. Never fear, return was a breeze and thanks to the cross-shipping at Amazon/Asus, I had a new working monitor within 48 hours. All in all, a very good value for an HDMI monitor of this quality. Would buy again.
Asus VE228H 21.5-Inch Full-HD LED Monitor with Integrated Speakers

Summary: Very nice monitor. Very good picture and color. They only thing that bothers me, is that the speakers are in the back, and i can hardly hear it when it is turned all the way up. Would I purchase Asus VE228H 21.5-Inch Full-HD LED Monitor with Integrated Speakers again......sure. Price was really good.
Summary: ok let me get started by saying this: this is a great monitor i have used it for video editing some light gaming. to be honest i bought this monitor because it was the cheapest 22inch monitor (reputable) that i found that has an HDMI, so i powered up my computer (for the first time) and immediately outputted @ 1920x1080 but i had a black edge, so after installing windows and everything i downloaded the driver for my graphics card (xfx radeon hd 6870) and then did color...
Picture is awesome but the speakers could be better

Summary: The LED picture is fupping fantastic, I've had it for a few months and still looks brand new. There are no dead pixels and it has alright speaker but its not that big a deal i wear headphones for gaming and its perfect for that!
Summary: I bought this as a upgrade to a dying 17" square monitor. Wow, it's huge by comparison! Anyway, this is a really good looking monitor. The brightness setting out of the box will blind you, but that's easily adjusted. Colors looked good out of the box - no adjustments needed. Overall I'm really satisfied with this monitor. Pros: Nice display, relatively cheap for a monitor this size Cons: The speakers are truly terrible, but you're not buying it for the speakers right?
Summary: This product is great. For the price, you really can't do better. The only downside is its HDMI input isn't supported on Ubuntu, but the VGA input works great and looks great, too. On windows, you get the full 1080p. It's bright, it's sturdy, I love it.
