A solid monitor

heavyclassical, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • 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.

Subpar text display. Induces eye fatigue

Gary C., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: Overall, the monitor gets the job done for a low price. However, if you are purchasing for lots of on-screen reading, I would investigate other options.
  • Pros: DISCLAIMER: This review is biased toward using the monitor for on-screen reading for 8-9 hours continuously every day. -bright -decent color reproduction for office work -adequate for viewing under office lighting conditions
  • Cons: -jagged text display -extreme eye fatigue during on-screen reading The display of text is subpar on this monitor. I use 2 of these side by side at work. The majority of what I display is text for on-screen reading. By the end of the work day, it is difficult to focus my eyes. I have compared the ...

Nearly great

Alex T., Newegg
19 December 2012
  • Summary: It's a beautiful monitor for a solid price, but I'd suggest buying a different one. Better yet, buy a monitor at a store so you can take it out of the box and plug it in to be sure there's not much bleed through or any stuck pixels.
  • Pros: Solid value Vivid colors Very bright Good size Speakers aren't bad
  • Cons: Serious bleedthrough around the edges. Not only white-ish bleedthrough on the slides and top, but there's a blu-ish bleedthrough on the bottom. Very noticeable during dark points in games and movies, less so any other time. Very cheap stand. Monitor wobbles with the smallest shake of the table. M...

Good monitor, but don't get it

Hazim, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • 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.

VH242H LCD monitor

techie girl, Amazon
20 October 2012
  • Summary: The package arrived and was excited after reading the reviews. I had no problem with resolution and setup as it worked fine right out of the package. I did change from theater to standard as it looked better. The setting buttons are a bit difficult to push as well as the power button.

Dead Pixels

S. McCarthy "Handbone", Amazon
28 June 2011
  • Summary: Just bought the monitor and like most people, I have a few dead pixels right out of the box. I will order another to see how that one works, but so far its a no go for me. BUT, the monitor is very nice and huge. Colors, contrast, and brightness look great, and its good for the price.

  • Summary: Not overly impressed. Screen is very blue (even post screen). Spent a long time trying to adjust (with the dumb adjust buttons located on the bottom of the monitor) but one way was too blue the other settings were too something else. No happy medium.

Walmart
22 July 2010
  • Summary: Problem #1 was my own fault. I mis-read the resolution as 1920x1200 but it was only 1920x1080. Problem #2: It is much harder to read anything on it compared to my previous 22" monitor (A Synaps that I also bought at WalMart) Problem #3: When the screen blanks due to the screen saver turning on,...
