Great IPS monitor for the price!

by Iredeus on 7/18/2012

I bought this after some research. This is still a new model so there wasn't much to go from. First of all let me say I didn't get this for the 3D, but it isn't too bad. Its actually better than some active 3D monitors ive used. The panel its self is very vibrant and beautiful. The blacks are nice and dark. The one issue I had was lightbleed on the corners. I managed to get rid of most of it by turning the brightness to around 70, which is still a decent brightness to work with. Overall I am very pleased with this product, and with Buy.

Solid monitor except for 3D

on 5/15/2013

I bought this monitor having read many reviews. It matched up very well with what I read. 3D is horrible and I just could not get it to work with either a MacbookPro or an Asus laptop running Windows 8. Simply put, don't buy this for 3D. However, when it comes to standard 2D, this monitor really performs well. Brightness is good and it took very little color adjustments to feel like the settings were right. It's an older monitor and thus very affordable. Height adjustment is a requirement for me and this stand worked beautifully. Buttons are a little clunky and not all that intuitive so I couldn't give ease of use a 5. Overall, I'd definitely buy again.

Stereoscopic 3D Immersion. Cinematic 3D Home Theater.
The VG23AH features Film-type Patterned Retarder (FPR) 3D technology that transports users into an immersive 3D virtual world. The technology used in FPR 3D monitors separate the 3D images that are delivered to the left and right eye simultaneously to deliver flicker-free 3D visuals that are easy on your eyes.

Do away with complicated 3D system setups with the ASUS All-in 3D technology. The VG23AH features an exclusive hotkey that allows users to convert any 2D to 3D content easily without compromising performance. The VG23AH delivers the ultimate cinematic home theater experience — providing ultra-crisp and smooth 2D or 3D visuals accompanied by audio from its built-in 3W stereo speakers.

Vivid Color Performance and Visual Experience.
The VG23AH brings users into a spectacular colorful world in full HD 1080p and its IPS panel provides a 178° wide-view angle on both vertical and horizontal planes, with minimal color shift.

ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio provides lifelike images with an 80,000,000:1 contrast ratio, giving users the darkest of blacks and the brightest of whites; while Splendid™ Video Intelligence Technology optimizes video performance and image fidelity by enhancing color, brightness, contrast, and sharpness. Six preset video modes (Scenery, Theater, Game, Night View, sRGB and Standard) can be selected via a hotkey.

Extensive Connectivity.
The VG23AH features a smart design with dual HDMI 1.4 output ports. These twin ports provide 3D Blu-ray support, and allows for greater flexibility with the display being concurrently connected to both a game console and Blu-ray disc player and can be easily switched on/off when in use. In addition, it offers extra connectivity options by way of single-link DVI and D-sub ports.

User-Friendly Design.
The VG23AH has been ergonomically designed to ensure that users always find a comfortable viewing position thanks to its swivel, tilt, and height adjustable stand.

It also comes with lightweight, battery-free 3D glasses. These FPR 3D glasses are flicker-free as the two lenses receive the images for the left and right eye from the display simultaneously. These glasses feature an ASUS-exclusive design, and do not contain any electrical components, with the user not needing to worry about charging the battery. These 3D glasses ensure a comfortable fit for the user. The VG23AH comes with a pair of 3D glasses, along with additional 3D clip-on glasses.
