Summary: If you need a monitor and this is right in your price range (which it was for me) go ahead and get this. If you need speakers and all the lovely things you'd like for your monitor to have in a nice package, go for the VE228H model. It's about $20 more (or it could be less than this one if you buy used), it has speakers, and it's a larger display WITH an HDMI port. I bought this one in hopes it would be like that model, but sadly it wasn't.
Summary: I had a hard time finding a monitor that would be the right size to fit into a tight space- but this one was perfect. Asus makes great monitors and this one is light and has great reception. I recommend it to anyone who only has a width of 19 inches of space- this one will work perfectly!
