Good Budget Monitor!

 

Great value for the money. The base was a little scuffed up, but I was planning a wall mount, so that really was not an issue. Bright display. No dead pixels. It's not a gaming monitor, but for what I wanted it for, (Emails and web cruising), its...

Price. LED Backlight Light. Great for wall brackets.

Base was a little scratched. VGA only. Video and Power cord supplied were only 3 feet.

ASUS VS197D-P

 

I would recommend these monitors as they do come with a 30 day refund/replace policy, plus a one year warranty, so it is a risk free investment. One monitor was manufactured in 2012 and the other in 2014. These are not HD 1080p monitors and ONLY have...

I purchased two of these sold by Newegg.com, not one of their other distributors. They were refurbished, which was known and expected. The monitors arrived in fairly good cosmetic condition, with only minor blemishes that are not apparently noticeable...

Both the provided VGA cables and power cables for each monitor were too short to reach my power strip and PC's video card from a hutch on top of my desk. I was fortunate enough to have found one power cable and one VGA cable that were long enough to...

I received this as a gift; now I'm trying to figure out what to do with it. VGA was developed in 1987. The electrical specification is specifically designed for CRT monitors. So why, in 2015 is VGA still being used? Not only that, why is it used in a...

ASUS Monitors

 

The monitor would go to sleep and not wake up. Only way to get back was to reboot computer. After much searching, this is a known issue with Asus.

Good monitor at a reasonable price

 

I'd still recommend this monitor, good display for a good price, just keep in mind the plug is very touchy.

The display is nice and bright without any glare, the presets are good and there's plenty of user customization available

I have to agree with the other reviewer, the plug is the one drawback on this monitor, it's very sensitive and the slightest touch cuts the power off

Clear picture and fast - a great buy.

 

I had been looking for a long time for the right monitor. I needed one that was not wider than a 19" since I have a small workspace, was shiny black and that it tilts and didn't look cheap. This was perfect! Many of the other models like Samsung or HP...
