Summary: I LOVE this monitor. The colors look great and are vivid. I have another monitor sitting right besides it which is an older NEC and that thing just doen't look as good as this one. I would buy another if I had the Money.
Summary: The monitor itself is great, but I get headaches after sitting in front of it for several hours. Never had that problem with non LCD monitors (back in the dark aughts), so am attributing it to LCD in general rather than Asus in particular.

Summary: A huge difference compared to the old CRT monitors. I love the gigantic screen, it works great for multi-tasking and gaming. Not sure if I could go back to a smaller screen after using the VH242H. Definitely recommended!
Decent sized screen and no issues after about year of ownership

Summary: I bought this screen to update from a office sized monitor I was using and I must say I quite love it. The picture is clear and vibrant, it has multiple ports so you can use HDMI, DVI and VGA, and a few others.
Summary: Large screen with no dead pixels. Colors are vivid and viewing angle is great. Speakers are fine if you get your expectations right. Stand is not adjustable height-wise which was a drawback for me but can be rotated. Price can hardly be beat for a monitor of this size. A few minor drawbacks: 1.
Summary: UPDATE 8/24/2014: This monitor STILL runs strong to this day! It's been almost 2 years and has been through long hours of gaming sessions and used as our primary computer monitor daily. It's still going without any problems and I even have only caught a single dead pixel.
Summary: My mother was looking to replace her old 15" monitor. She had just purchased a new computer and wanted to utilize the graphics card that was in it, not to mention the blu-ray reader. She has loved it!
Summary: I think Asus makes pretty good monitors. I have a 24 inch Asus Monitor (V246) and I bought this as my second one. I liked it but my 246 was noticeably better in color and a bit thinner. Also the 242 monitor itself is a little big.
