Asus VH242HL-P


The Asus VH242HL-P is one of only two monitors we tested with a stand that tilts, swivels, and is height-adjustable. The 23.6-inch display is based on a six-bit TN panel with FRC and a native resolution of 1920x1080.   The monitor's default setting...

Stand tilts, swivels, and is height-adjustable; uniform black level; displays text very well

Had to sacrifice brightness for color accuracy; some colors caused blooms of intensity

We didn’t encounter any dead or discolored pixels in our review, but buyers should note that Asus’s three-year warranty kicks in only if there are more than five of the former or three of the latter.

The VH242H actually uses a 23.6-inch panel with a maximum resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 and a 16:9 aspect ratio, which means you can watch Blu-ray movies in their native format. The panel, with its nonreflective, antiglare finish, is housed in a black...

Very affordable price. Solid dark grayscale and color reproduction. Good motion handling and small text performance. Sleek design

Limited stand adjustability. No USB ports. Weak light grayscale performance

The ASUS VH242H is an amazingly affordable 23-inch LCD monitor capable of displaying full HD (1080p) content in its native 16:9 format. It delivers good color and motion performance and has no trouble handling small fonts, but you won't find a lot of...

24-inch widescreen monitor


The 24-inch class Asus VH242H (the screen actually measures 23.6-inches) is considered to be a strong performer and exceptional value among similarly sized monitors. Excellent colors are not significantly marred by grayscale performance that's...

Good value, excellent color, good performance with fast-moving images, includes HDMI and DVI inputs

Some reliability concerns, no USB ports, image presets of limited value

Asus VH242H 23.6" Widescreen LCD Monitor


With Asus's recent Blitzkrieg of inexpensive Eee PC netbooks and nettops, it might be easy forget that Asus also manufactures a full bevy of components and peripherals from motherboards to graphics cards to networking products. Asus also makes LCD...

Inexpensive ; Great Image Quality ; HDMI, DVDI-D, and VGA inputs ; HDCP compliant

Control Button Labels Hard to See ; Built-in Speakers Are No Replacement for Stand-Alone Speakers ; Stand Does Not Swivel ; Display is Not Height-adjustable

Even though the VH242H includes a number of different image-quality presets for various content-type viewing scenarios, we found that most of the time the monitor's default settings were sufficient. That's not to say that tweaking the settings didn't...

ASUS VH242H 24-Inch 16:9 LCD Monitor


As more people continue to move into smaller spaces, they are starting to require more from their electronics and computer equipment. It's no longer enough for a product to serve ...

Very attractive design, including cable management ; Ghosting and motion blur are minimal ; Color reproduction is quite good ; All cables (except HDMI) included in the box ; 16:9 aspect ratio great for games and movies

Can appear washed out at times; darks could be darker ; Possible power supply issue ; No additional extras like webcam and mic

In addition to the monitor and stand, you get both a DVI and a VGA cable. This way, you have no trouble getting started with either a digital or an analog video connection. If you want to make use of the integrated stereo speakers, the included 3.5mm...

Great, big monitor


A beautiful monitor. People complain about the menu system, but how often do you need to go in there? I use it as a monitor and I use it with my verizon cable box as an HTDV, and it does a beautiful job of both. The only complaint I have with the...

Image quality, size, HDMI, produces barely any heat

Speakers (who would use them anyway), switching inputs is slow, moving images blur easily
