Excerpt: I purchased this model and the ASUS VN247H-P 23.6" at the same time. I couldnt tell which one to get based off the other reviews and honestly with having them side by side, they are so close in quality I would not be able to say which one is better. I would favor the ASUS VN247H-P 23.6" only because of its black matte finish for the housing instead of the gloss.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: 1080p monitors seem to be the sweet spot for price these days as they are a very popular size. The resolution is good for gaming and general office work with plenty of detail and brightness. Contrast is excellent and it is worth a bit more money to get higher contrast I think. An improvement over my last monitor. I don't think this is in the economy class of monitors, but a bit higher up. Actual vertical height of the display area is 11.8 inches, approximately.
Summary: this monitor is excellent has a splendid mode which gives you different brightness settings and makes your graphics much richer. I work with graphics and do some gaming and this is an excellent 2ms monitor. Im still learning how to use all the features. I just got the monitor 15 mins ago. I paid 99.00 for my acer which was also a 24 inch and is not as detailed or contrast as the asus. I tired various settings on the acer but the asus is cleaner and richer.
