Good deal

 

I like these monitors and all the other ASUS monitors I have owned. The only downside is the resolution doesn't even get close to 1920X1080. but like the Cons, you should know that before purchasing this.

Price ; Great for an office monitor

A little small for a gaming rig but you get what you pay for

One of the best, if not the best Monitor for the $100 range

 

Superfast UPS shipping arrived in one day!!

DVI, High contrast ratio, Asus splendid mode adjustments, Bright screen, Black finish, built in speakers ; Simply the best monitor you can find for less than $100 that has built in speakers and DVI

The base is somewhat supportive but seems just a tad bit flimsy because the base is very light and if the monitor is tapped, it wobbles for a few seconds

Consumer review by:

Good Monitor, Great price!

 

This is a great monitor deal! It arrived in great condition! The speakers aren't great, but that's to be expected. They still work fine and sound good enough for normal everyday use. I have no issue with them personally.

1. Works great ; 2. Easy to use and setup ; 3. Great price ; 4. Very fast and cheap shipping ; 5. Adjustable base is decent

Only one con; the base seems a little flimsy and less sturdy than one would hope. While it snaps into place easy enough, the monitor still wobbles a tiny bit. It's not enough to take an egg off the rating, but it's worthy of note. Asus should work to...

ASUS VH196T-P Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 5000 :1 (ASCR) Built-in Speakers

 

I bought this as a gift. It looks so nice and works so well I am going to buy another for my office!

Crisp screen, vibrant colors

No height adjustment

Consumer review by:

very nice

 

Resolution tops out at 1440x900, so be aware that it's not full HD. Neither pro nor con since I was aware of this going in, and higher resolution is not needed for this user. Bought for an aunt who I'm building a system for, temporarily running as a...

great price. nice bundle (came with VGA, DVI and audio cables). good colors, no dead pixels. Makes my 5-year old 17" panel (from that big company that starts with D) look bland and lifeless. built-in speakers are handy for light use (voice calls etc)...

built-in speakers are cheesy (sounds like they're inside a cardboard box), but I wasn't expecting much form them. OK for Skype, which is the only audio the user will be pushing through them. Factory default is a bit on the bright side, which has been...

Very decent

 

For the price, you can not beat this. I built a budget system for my 8 year old and this monitor was the perfect price to performance ratio.

PRICE, Size, and look

Not much

Consumer review by:

Nice

 

I like the default "standard mode" setting the best of the presets.

Nice looking monitor. No glare on screen and viewable from just about any angle. Stickers peel off bezel without leaving any residue. Newegg price and shipping. 3 year warranty (looks like Asus is only giving 2 years for the LED backlit)

None to note at this time

Consumer review by:

Great monitor for the price

 

Everything presets were too bright from the factory on high, I had to set everything down to 50% and still kinda bright.... but anyway Im happy with this monitor so far, I have been playing my PC games more than ever since I got it.

Nice looking monitor, great for games, it's my size for my budget

Not the best, but I love it

Consumer review by:

Great value as always

 

Great value for price, clear picture, no dead pixels

Speakers not terribly well powered, but convenient alternative if regular speakers burn out
