ASUS VW266H

 

There's nothing like watching a movie or playing your favorite 3D game on a big, bright screen. The problem is, most 26-inch and bigger displays are fairly expensive, and in this economic climate, not many folks are willing cough up four or five...

Very affordably priced. Good color, text, and light grayscale performance. Lots of connections. Powerful speakers

So-so dark grayscale performance. Tilt-only stand

The ASUS VW266H is a versatile 25.5-inch monitor with an incredibly low price. A generous selection of video inputs, a decent sound system, and overall solid performance make this a great deal for the money.

ASUS VW266H Widescreen LCD Monitor

 

Yet another huge and affordable LCD monitor review! We know you love big monitors because we all do. That's why Benchmark Reviews has today the ASUS VW266H 16:10 Widescreen LCD Monitor. Not long ago any LCD screen was cost prohibitive for us working...

Big screen ; Price ; Build Quality ; Accurate color for a TF panel ; Really good horizontal view angle + Realiable ; No dead or stuck pixels ; 16:10 aspect ratio ; Very good set of adjustment options, including "user" for R,G,B adjustments ; 3 year...

Hard to find ; It's a TF panel ; Backlight bleed ; Internal speakers ; No USB ports ; Frustrating OSD navigation

The ASUSVW266H maintains the 16:10 aspect ratio so desired by computer enthusiasts, while keeping the price down to manageable levels. There are bigger monitors out there for around the same price tag, but not at this aspect ratio, so watch for that....

The Asus VW266H 25.5â€: A Big, Cheap, Monitor

 

How does this big monitor with a budget price stand up when working, gaming, or watching movies? Check out our review of this monitor, which is priced like a 24", but almost 25.5". Does the inch and a half matter, and does the quality suffer?

Asus VW266H Monitor

 

Fist look at the VW266H In need of a new monitor? Then take a closer look at this monitor with its 26 inches and full HD resolution! At first glance it seems to be a pretty nice monitor and knowing Asus their prices are not very high either which is...

Nice looking ; No back bleed ; Cheap ; Good colors and picture

Can't raise or lower the screen

I will not talk to much about the built in speakers as they tend to suck most of the time and they do so this time also. Overall though the screen is awesome, the picture is clear and crisp while you can still setup alot of various color temperatures...

ASUS VW266H 25.5-in Monitor Review - Going large on a budget

 

The ASUS line of LCD monitors continues to impress us with their lineup of features, performance and low price. The new VW266H display is a 25.5-in offering with a 1920x1200 resolution that includes HDMI, component, DVI and VGA inputs with support for...

ASUS VW266H 25.5" LCD Monitor

 

It's been quite a while since we have last taken a look at an ASUS monitor, much less one that we've been ultimately impressed by, so when we received their latest model, the VW266H, we couldn't wait to tear it out of the box to see if things have...

Affordable, huge screen size ; DVI, VGA, HDMI, and component inputs are included ; S/PDIF output ; Built-in speaker is decent ; Supports 1:1 pixel mapping, ability to use as a television replacement

Image quality is only adequate ; Grain is present when viewing videos ; Cheap stand is included

We've chosen DisplayMate for Windows, well known for its industry-standard testing capabilities and calibration options, to do the bulk of our benchmarking for our display reviews, because it offers an enormous amount of tools and testing patterns to...

Asus VW266H

 

The Asus VW266H is far from stylish, but it offers slightly above-average performance and a large 26-inch screen at a reasonable price. HDMI and component-video inputs make it a versatile all-around HD display, though it lacks the handy USB ports found...

Above-average performance; low price for the screen size; HDMI and component-video connections

Dull design; no integrated USB hub; some ports difficult to access

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

Asus VW266H review

 

The Asus VW266H is a 26in screen with a 1,920x1,200 resolution, which will play Full HD (1,920x1,080) video in all its glory with room to spare. The extra vertical room is useful for reading web pages and long documents. Unusually for a PC monitor it...

The VW266H has reasonably good picture quality, but it's not as good value as Iiyama's larger E2710HDSD-1

ASUS VW266H Monitor Review

 
Jul, 2010

Consumer review by: Michael F. (newegg.com)

Great Monitor

 

I bought another one recently to run 2. I could have gone out and bought 2 new monitors, the money wasn't the reason i bought a used monitor, this monitor is just that good. I have one, why not 2?

This monitor has never hiccuped in the 6 years I have owned it ; Even though it is 6 years old, if you can find one for sale, expect to pay as much as some new monitors about the same size. There's a reason for this, it is a great monitor. Asus built a...

Speakers aren't the greatest, but that is not what I bought it for
