Summary: This monitor is like playing on a CRT TV all over again. GREAT response and the graphics are very good as well. This monitor is great for its price and if you are considering buying a BENQ simply for console gaming DO NOT DO IT. The BenQ houses too much power to be utilized in its entirety by current generation consoles (Xbox 360 at least) so there is no need to pay $500 for a console use only gaming monitor.
Summary: Great Monitor. Speakers are low quality if you care about that sort of thing. You need a audio cord to have the speakers work out of the box which I'm not sure is stated clearly. They didn't work through HDMI when I tried.
Summary: I bought this monitor primarily for use with my XBOX 360 (playing games like Battlefield 3). Unfortunately the image quality was not was I was expecting (connected with HDMI). The home screen was grainy and somewhat blurry. Even after several minutes of trying to play with the settings (both on the monitor and the xbox) I could not get a decent picture. Also, there seems to be quite a bit of light bleed and blacks seem to be gray.
Summary: I've had this monitor for a few months... it is time to review. The colors are really bad on the monitor. Every month since I've had it, I finally get fed up and spend a half hour trying to calibrate the colors. Most shades of light gray are invisible to me... they just look white. I suspect that is fine for the average person who just browses the web and reads email... but when detail matters, this just isn't acceptable.
Summary: I purchased this because I needed a good monitor for gaming as well as computer use. I everything about this product, there's nothing I dislike about it. This monitor is great for everything and is a good price too.
Summary: Just purchased my second Asus VH236H, this time was for my wifes computer. Having utilized the first unit flawlessly for over a year now, I felt comfortable enough ordering another one. I've been using ASUS monitors now for some time, and I can honestly say i've been pleased with every single one (about 5 or 6). The main benefits of this particular model include: 23in display, low power draw (<55w), good colors, and a full range of inputs.
Summary: I only had seen ONE review where someone mentioned having an issue with the way the monitor panel is 'coated' for anti reflectivity. I thought I'd ignore it as a one off, or a picky person. Well I got my monitor, which was to sit side-by-side with an older 23" Acer LCD, and indeed there is an odd coating on the panel that is very annoying. it's like it had a coat of grease or smudge.... a sparkly pattern.
Summary: for starters the picture quality is great.and it even has diffrent mode settings to enhance it even further .it tilts to a comfortable viewing angle and it has built-in speakers.the only thing i didnt like was changing the settings the menu is kinda funky to us.but once you get use to it its ok
