Asus VG236H 120Hz 3D Display Review


Before you scream, “Who in their right mind would pay $500 for a 23-inch twisted-nematic panel?!” know that this is a 120Hz monitor, and that Asus is putting Nvidia's 3D Vision kit—a $200 product—inside the box. If you're excited about 3D gaming and...

Compatible with Nvidia's active shutter glasses and associated games

Highly reflective screen; no DisplayPort; relatively wide bezel; no portrait mode

Most people contemplating a VG236H purchase will have gaming in mind, and from that perspective, it’s a great choice—especially with games that take advantage of Nvidia’s 3D Vision. (Asus plans to offer a second SKU sans Nvidia’s glasses, but the...

ASUS VG236H 23-inch 3D Display Review: 120Hz is the Future


There's a new segment in the ever changing LCD display market, one that readers have been asking us to take an in-depth look at for a while now - 120 Hz panels. We've been playing with ASUS' newest display, the VG236H. It's a 120Hz, 1080P, 23" 3D...

Asus VG236H review: Asus VG236H


The Asus VG236H is a 23-inch monitor with a 120Hz refresh rate and is compatible with the Nvidia 3D Vision Kit . The monitor includes a host of ergonomic adjustment options as well as HDMI and DVI connections. At $340 (without the 3D Vision kit; $500...

The Asus VG236H is aesthetically pleasing and has a useful number of ergonomic touches and connection options.

A green tint problem plagues the Asus VG236H, causing its overall color quality to suffer. Also, its high black level loses dark detail in movies.

The Asus VG236H is a decent performing monitor that includes enough extras to justify its price.

NVIDIA 3D Vision w/ ASUS VG236HE 3D Display Review

ASUS VG236H 3D Monitor and NVIDIA 3D Surround Review


NVIDIA 3D Vision has been out for a while now, unlike Surround technology. How about trying them out together with three affordable ASUS monitors?

My main thought is that 3D Surround isn't quite a mature technology yet. First and foremost, there were a few hiccups here and there with 3D Vision. Second, many games tested could not span on all three displays. Most of them however were games...

ASUS VG236H 120Hz LCD Monitor 3D-Vision Set


We live in a three-dimensional world, and yet we settle for a 2D virtual world while sitting in front of computers. The price of 3D-capable monitors isn't affordable for budget buyers, just like LCD monitors weren't value priced when they began showing...

Includes NVIDIA 3D Vision Home kit ; 23.6-Inch 1920x1080p widescreen display ; HDMI, component video, and DVI input ; 100,000:1 Contrast ratio (max) ; 2ms Response time (gray to gray) ; 120Hz Refresh rate improves definition ; 3-Year warranty support ;...

Lacks integrated stereo speakers ; Requires modern GeForce video card ; Expensive enthusiast product ; Menu buttons blend into bezel

Overall, the ASUS VG236H performed above my expectations. The SPLENDID Video Intelligence Technology allowed the monitor to quickly switch between five viewing modes: Scenery, Standard, Theater, Game, and Night View. Each mode had it's own set of...

Asus VG236H 120Hz 3D Vision LCD Monitor Review


There is a big push for various 3D technologies in the current market. Whether you're a fan or foe, the industry is pushing forward with 3D at a torrid pace. Recently, we had a chance to test 3D Vision Surround from NVIDIA and came away impressed by...

Magnificent colors ; Excellent 3D performance ; Fast 2ms response time ; Height, swivel, tilt adjustments

Expensive ; No DisplayPort

Performance Summary: Throughout testing, the VG236H did very well. In 2D mode, it's easily one of the best looking TN panels we've tested. The colors are vivid, images are clear, and text is sharp. Although Everest Monitor Diagnostics revealed evidence...

Asus VG236 review


Asus release a Full-HD, 3D capable LCD monitor with 23-inches of viewing space

Lovely panel ; 3D Vision bundle ; 3D gaming's working

Slightly chunky chassis

The 3D Vision bundle and the 120Hz refresh rate make this 23-incher worthwhile

Asus VG236H review


We enjoyed 3D gaming on this monitor, but it's very expensive and not compatible with the key standard for 3D imaging – HDMI 1.4a.

As a novelty for avid gamers, the VG236H is impressive, but even then many will balk at the £370 price tag. You can get a decent 2D monitor for less than half this price, and the VG236H ties you to Nvidia graphics cards. Upcoming 3D monitors, from Asus...

Asus VG236H review


To those who've followed a couple of decades or more of consumer technology, the enthusiasm of today's entertainment world for all things 3D will come as nothing new.

Although the Asus is expensive for a 23in LCD monitor with a TN panel, the cost may be more than worth it should you have the necessary 3D kit as well. The reflective glass screen is annoying, but otherwise this is a very decent flat-panel and a...
