Summary: The 1ms response time is amazing. It makes a huge difference in gaming especially in first person shooters. Not only is it good for gaming it is excellent for watching movies too. 80000000:1 smart contrast makes movies and tv shows look crystal clear. Best picture I have ever seen on any display. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a gaming monitor or just looking for a great display to watch tv and movies on it is simply the best.
Summary: i bought 2 of these to run dual monitors. i love the 1ms input for gaming. the stand seems a bit stiff to adjust because its a awkward motion to adjust it. but once you figure that out this product is golden. it never gets jiggles since the stand is so solid. and the colors and clarity are awesome. overall best bang for your buck 1ms monitor you can buy.
Summary: The first few weeks I had this monitor, I felt like I'd made a mistake buying it. I tried repeatedly to adjust it using the onscreen menu but even with my best adjustments the contrast was low and the colors overly saturated. About the 10th time I tried readjusting the picture, I turned Smart View off. Bam, I had plenty of contrast and could reduce the color saturation to a more reasonable level.
Pros: Purchased this monitor for work, the price was right, and I can trust ASUS products. The whole form factor and aesthetics of the monitor look nice. This monitor comes with lots of extra cables you may or may not use (vga-vga, dvi-hdmi, auxiliary cable (for sound)). Quick and convenient setup. Changes the whole atmosphere of my desk (everyone in the office have their standard issued black monitors from the company's vendors). Also, this monitor is super lightweight.
Cons: First monitor I received was defective, but I contacted Newegg.com right away for a replacement (so thank you very much Newegg.com). The monitor stand was stuck in the -5 degree tilt (if you cannot tilt it back with a little force it is defective so replace it).
Summary: I will start by saying this is my first purchase on amazon, as well as my first review, and I couldn't be happier. I purchased the ASUS VX238H after about a month of research and going back and forth as to which monitor would best fit my needs for PS3/PS4 gaming. For years I have used 50+" TVs for my gaming blindly thinking "the bigger the better", but more recently I started doing research and began looking into products that would give me a competitive edge.
Summary: My old PC setup was a laptop with an external monitor.. I really liked all the screen space.. but when I upgraded to a desktop PC I figured a single 23inch monitor would suffice. NOPE. The first ASUS VX238H I got was from Newegg, and has a white bezal (they actually let you choose the color). The one I got from Amazon has a black bezel/stand. I prefer the white, but the color of the bezel does not affect the operation.
