19-inch widescreen monitor


While there are plenty of 19-inch monitors to choose from, the 19-inch Asus VW198T is noteworthy for its high resolution and low price. It is one of a new class of 16:10 aspect ratio monitors, sporting a resolution of 1,680-by-1,050 pixels. That gives...

Clear picture, excellent value, high resolution for screen size

Text size is a bit small, mount is a little unsteady, lacks an HDMI input, some complaints of hard-to-use controls, weak speakers

ASUS VH198T Black 19" 5ms LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 ASCR 10,000,000 :1 W/ Speakers


I was a little hesitant on buying a refurbished monitor, but this one works and looks just like new.

Good Picture Quality ; No Dead Pixels ; D-sub, DVI, and sound cables included ; LED Backlit

Sound quality from speakers isn't very good (below laptop quality), but that is to be expected from speakers this small

Manuals are horrid. Sound is poor. Choppy text. I have used quite a few others with better video. Splendid button fixed blurry vert streaks. OK by my wife but I would not buy again. Unplugged my CRT and plugged this in and could not get a picture even...

There is not much to say other than that this is a nice monitor. Not a single dead pixel out of the box and the speakers work really good. The volume goes from 0-100 and I keep it around 12 for most games.
