Does anyone have this monitor? My monitor is getting old and outdated, and I'm looking for a monitor that has HDMI inputs. This monitor is priced nicely as well.

Any opinions?

I've got the 24" VW246H version from Asus, it's awesome:)

I'm using the HDMI cable From my 480 to my monitor and it's worked Flawless.


I would say go for it.. i got my 24" from newegg for $199 :) And it's the best monitor i've ever owned.

I have one. Its a nice monitor.

Its my first LCD and I don't really have any major complaints. It looks pretty good, its big, and there is no input lag.

I'd like to try an LCD with an IPS panel though because I definitely do notice some significant color-shifting and viewing angle issues with this Asus screen (all TN monitors have this problem). The colors are also not as smooth as they were on my CRT and I do notice dithering on darker colors and gradients.

If you have a Dell Ultrasharp now, I would advise against getting this monitor simply because you'll get worse viewing angles and grainier colors.

If I were you, I'd look into a Dell Ultrasharp U2410. You would get better picture quality and better input lag and response times. It also has HDMI and just about anythings else you could want on a monitor.

I've got two and they were good enough for me to FINALLY shift away from CRT's earlier this year. No HDMI, only VGA, DVI, and DisplayPort though. The price was certainly right though: I got mine for a hair under $300 a piece.

The reason I'm looking at it right now is because it's on sale for $270. And it's a 25.5 inch monitor. ;)

If TN screens don't bother you, it's likely a pretty good deal. I'm someone who notices and who is bothered by it.

If you're used to a PVA monitor Doc, you really should stick to *VA and IPS screens.

TN is cheaper, but you probably will notice the difference in viewing angles.

I don't really think about it most of the time, but if I actually look for it I can see a discoloration around the edges of my monitor when I'm sitting directly in front of it. Its just so big that the viewing angle limitations actually become noticeable when you're directly in front of it if you're only a few feet away.

Its a great screen for someone who isn't picky or isn't used to a high end monitor though.

I was used to a high end CRT monitor and I was picky, but I just couldn't cough up the extra $200 for an IPS screen. I will some day though. ;)

I did look at the 2410 when I was looking for another monitor, but that one costs more than I'm willing to spend right now....

There is a $30 mail in rebate posted at NewEgg but it doesn't seem to be for any specific stores, so you should be able to use it. :)
