Bought in 2010, Lasted Until 2016

I T., Newegg
3 March 2016
  • Summary: I would recommend this to others, but an actuality, the monitor I am aiming to replace it with will be a 27" and looking forward to it.
  • Pros: I've enjoyed this monitor since 2010 and got a lot of gaming use out of it, as well as graphic design.
  • Cons: The monitor seems to have come to the end of it's life. First the buttons at the bottom went out [such as the one to change the screen theme---those don't work] and then for the past 4 months whenever the monitor reposts [loads a high graphic game at full screen, restarting the operating system, ...

Died Right After Manufacturer Warranty Had Expired

Paul E., Newegg
2 March 2016
  • Summary: I'm filling this review out now because I am finally looking to get a new monitor and because of this past experience I'm having a hard time deciding if I'd buy Asus again based on quality because they do seem to sell more affordable products.
  • Pros: Screen Size. No dead pixels. Decent price at the time.
  • Cons: This monitor died right around when the manufacturer warranty expired. It would have cost more to replace than just to buy new... It turned off about 1 second after I repeatedly tried turning it back on. I imagine it was the LCD's inverter or capacitors that went bad as others with the same sympt...

  • Pros: -full HD - Long lasting Bought this monitor in late 2008, and it's still alive and kicking. Has put up with moves, mechwarrior online and warcraft, movies and various games. Durable, full HD and was worth the price at the time. I paid well over 300$ for it at the time.. the Webcam or the speakers...
  • Cons: -web cam wasn't really needed. - speakers weren't needed either.

  • Summary: Try to find software for webcam! The webcam should work with normal software. I've gotten no help from ASUS. There download sites seem to always on the blink. Don't count on long term support of function for this monitor! Beware!

My Review of the ASUS VK246H monitor

Richard Bazan, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this monitor new 4 yrs ago during the course of a total system rebuild. Entire system was ASUS oriented (starting with motherboard) so I decided to stay with a ASUS monitor. I never power my system off. The monitor however does sleep.

Great for gaming.

Rebecca W., Newegg
18 August 2011
  • Summary: Installing the LifeFrame software for the webcam was troublesome originally but that's been fixed since I purchased.
  • Pros: If you are looking for an above average monitor for gaming... look no further. I decided between this and a more expensive Samsung monitor when I purchased it. It's been over a year and a half, no dead pixels - no signs of discoloration around edges - the speakers were better than I expected (I d...
  • Cons: The base is cheap and sort've in the way if you're looking for an ergonomic setup - However that could be solved by mounting it on a wall or buying a 3rd party item.
