ASUS VS239H-P LED Monitor - IPS Goodness for You and Me
20 February 2012
Excerpt: Does a low price equate to sub-par performance, even when the device in question is an IPS monitor? Here's our assessment of the ASUS VS239H-P, a 23-inch, full HD, LED-backlit IPS monitor with an HDMI input and a 5ms gray-to-gray response time. And the best part is, it costs 'just' S$269.
Pros: HDMI input with HDCP support, Good pixel responsiveness; overdrive level adjustable in the menu, Good color accuracy out of the box, Very competitively priced for an IPS monitor
Cons: Very limited ergonomic adjustments, Inaccurate sRGB mode, Dynamic contrast not particularly useful in real-life tasks
Summary: The VS239H is a standard monitor that "does the job", albeit with a cheaper IPS screen, rather than the inferior TN. If you have basic needs, this may see you through — just be aware of the limited defective pixel policy.
Pros: Affordable IPS screen, With a little search, you can pick it up for under AU$170, Decent warranty term
Cons: Buttons can be frustrating, Display a little too sharp, Not great for standalone HDMI device input, Limited defective pixel policy
