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.

ASUS VH242H

 

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

RECOMMENDED

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...

RECOMMENDED!

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

Consumer review by:

DVI Input from PC is Beautiful but HDMI looks faded!

 

This is a good monitor if you have sensitive eyes (like one of my blue-eyed friends), but thankfully my eyes are not sensitive to light and I can view very bright things. This monitors brightness is very limited, and clarity is just acceptable for a...

Slick black shinny surface that is easy to clean, and looks great if you keep your hands off of it after cleaning with dust rag. Decent Image quality on DVI (see Summary)

A little dim, not LED, and only 60hz refresh rate

Freat, can't tell difference from more expensive ones

 

I have had it for over a year without any trouble or problems. Highly recommend, especially for gamers.

Beautiful, clear display. Easy set up. Easy to adjust. Super fast refresh rates

Apparently does not have its own drivers. It used generic ones

Product Specifications

With height adjustment, swivel and tilt functions, you no longer have to contend with improper sitting postures or awkward viewing angles as it allows you to change the viewing angle according to your line of sight to enjoy greater comfort for long hour usage. Embedded HDMI input with Full HD 1080p resolution delivers multichannel audio and uncompressed digital video through a single cable for the ultimate multimedia entertainment. Supporting HDCP copy protection such as that found on Blu-ray Discs, HDMI simplifies cabling and provides the highest-quality multimedia audio and video experience. ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio) technology enhances the display's dynamic contrast ratio, creating sharper and brighter images, especially during video and movie playback.
