Asus VH236H 23-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor


The shiny, black Asus VH236H showed good image quality and smooth video in our subjective tests, making it a nice, well-priced monitor for entertainment-centric buyers. We also saw fine, easy-to-read text on both black and white backgrounds....

Showed crisp text and bright colors ; Includes a multitude of extra features

Offers few physical adjustments

With pleasant image quality and loads of extras, this widescreen should be a fine choice for work and entertainment.

Asus VH236H


The Asus VH236H is available for around $190 from e-tailers. For that price you not only get HDMI and DVI support, built-in speakers, a headphone jack but also great movie and game performance. We'd prefer to have more ergonomic options and a less...

The Asus VH236H has great movie and game performance, built-in speakers, and a headphone jack.

Navigating the Asus VH236H's OSD can be confusing and frustrating, and the display lacks ergonomic options.

The Asus VH236H is a great-performing 23-incher with a welcome low price.

Asus VH236H


Lackluster performance holds back this well-connected 23-inch budget display.

DVI, VGA, and HDMI ports; easy-to-use onscreen display; displays colors and text well

Poor performance at both ends of the gray scale; viewing-angle shortcomings; ho-hum design

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

"Turned shades of green in about 1 year."


I wouldn't say its totally bad. Like I said I did leave it on at times throughout the night. But I have done this regularly with all my monitors. For the price I think you can do better. But don't buy it if you like the fact that it has speakers.

Looks good and the display is good. Didn't look unbelievable or anything like that. I would say it was good, not great.

Speaker isn't good.

"New gear offers more option."


There has a 802.11G model-the ASUS wireless access point model WL-330G(802.11G) that offer wireless data rates: 54 Mbps(max) for around $60. Another choice is the D-Link DWL-G730AP Ultra-Compact 54Mbps 802.11g Wireless Router for around $79

"Connects everything at home easily"


So easy to setup. Even with 128 bit encryption. I use it as Access Point and Ethernet Adapter with my DVD player and Play Station at the same time with my portable wireless PC's. Just click and go. Great value for money

None that I can think of

Perfect for providing wireless access in hotel rooms with wired broadband. Incredibly small, feature rich, easy to use. Plug and play - no set up or software required. Very small {power adpater, ethernet cable,and usb power adapter} provided. Excell

"A terrific, 1080p display for a low price"


This was a HUGE upgrade from me from the ancient Hyundai L70N panel that I've been using for years...and honestly, there wasn't a whole lot to say about it.

I picked up this panel for only $168 via Amazon...for the price

-As the CNET review said, the menus are very frustrating to use

Consumer review by:



I bought this because it is "The Evo Monitor" used by fighting game players and organizers pretty ubiquitously. I had never thought about display lag in gaming before and definitely notice the difference between this and other monitors. Great for...

Extremely fast response time, great color and brightness options. Plenty of ports in the back for connecting multiple devices

Hardly ever goes on sale and $200 is a little pricey even though it's so great

Consumer review by:

Great color until it fades to black


The monitor actually just died.

It was great for while it lasted

The stand ; The monitor is starting to die after two years of light to moderate use. The back light is constantly flickering and has trouble turning on
