Great for the Price8/9/2012
These are great 23.6 inch screens for the cost. We have out fitted most our office with these.
Finaly a well priced Monitor and great resolution. This Monitor is awesome! We used to have a 15 inch Monitor and it was okay for it's time but now a days as you open up more and more windows you need better resolution and more desktop space. This Monitor is huge and works really well. Definately a 5 STAR item.

I purchased this product to replace a seven year old 14" LCD television that i use on my kitchen countertop. Not only does this up-size my screen size significantly, but it still--just barely--fits between the counter and the upper cabinets while on its standard tabletop pedestal. But this television's location is right next to where I usually park with my notebook computer when I am working at home. This monitor makes it easy for me to extend my Windows desktop onto second monitor, which is similar to what I have configured in my office. This is great when working with multiple windows, but it is also great if I want to watch an HD movie in full screen on Netflix while working on my computer on the built-in monitor. For having been sold as a reconditioned product, it was indistinguishable from brand new. There were no manuals, but physical condition was perfect, and there are no dead pixels. Picture quality appears very good, and audio quality is perfectly decent for built-in speakers.
I researched monitor options several times, but when my old monitor died, I knew that then I really had to buy a new one and researched again. I wanted the larger screen and one that was LED instead of LCD. I have good speakers so speakers or their quality was not an issue for me. It was easy to set up and recognized by my computer... wow! The screen was so bright right out the box that I dimmed the display light by almost 20%. I do photo editing and the colors on the screen are perfect without me needing to adjust anything. There is no movement to adjust the tilt of the screen, but that has not been an issue for me. All in all, I'm delighted with my new monitor!
An amazing product5/18/2012
The Asus VH242H is a 23.6" 16:9 1080p monitor that combines a number of great features into one package. The resolution of this monitor is high relative to its size, and that mean’s you’ll be able to display more information at once.
Good control panels are nice, bad control panels can make adjusting an LCD quite a chore. There are six control buttons on the face of the Asus VH242H display.
not that bad2/9/2012
This monitor has excellent picture display. I have had this monitor for a few years now and and the size is perfect for viewing two page in Office. Monitor is also bright and the speaker is also loud. On/off button is a bit hard to find in the dark, but not really a problem.his is a very nice monitor. We got 3 of them to replace an old Dell monitor and for two new PCs. It is bright and nice. The only issue I have is to switch input mode between VGA/DVI and HDMI. If you left the monitor to connect using HDMI. When switching to VGA, you need to get back to HDMI mode (with a monitor) in order to switch to the VGA mode.However, if you are not planning to hook up to multiple computers, it is not an issue.

How can you go wrong with ASUS11/27/2011
Great monitior for a very good price, I bought 1, my wife bought one and several of my friends followed suit. As a certified MS tech, I know the quality of ASUS products and always try to include them in the units I build. I always recommend ASUS products to my clients when I do repairs.
Perfect Picture-Great for my Laptop1/20/2011
Incredible picture from both my computer and from my connection to DirecTV. This is an amazing product. I have had it for several months now and it works flawlessly. This is a great value!

Great LCD Monitor11/22/2010
I'm very happy with this monitor. The price is right. The blues and greens are so rich and vibrant, I couldn't believe I waited so long to upgrade my old monitor. I love that it has all three connections: VGA, DVI, and HDMI. So it's ready to handle all of my toys. Buy.com customer service is great, as well. The first one I ordered had a loose power button. They sent me a new one, no problems.
Very nice monitor11/7/2010
I purchased this monitor to replace a good 17" monitor, the 17" print kept on getting smaller as time went on. Not a problem with the monitor, it was a user problem. Now I am able to see the print a lot better. It took a little time to adjust the color, contrast and brightness, and now the monitor is in my comfort zone. Overall, very nice monitor. Great size and look for the price.
Great bang for the buck, but could have problems.10/27/2010
Great size and look for the price, but I returned it becuase it had a dead (bright) pixle in the center of the screen. I will continue to purchase Samsung monitors. Asus makes FANTASTIC motherboards though.
failing after 2 months10/14/2010
worked great 1st 2 months, now random green pixels and distorted images, thought it must be the graphics card which I upgraded and replaced..same issues, just took my 2006 19" ancient HP lcd back out of retirement and it works great, definately an issue w/ this monitor.. Have always had great luck and recommended ASUS products, am beginning to wonder now..should have tried the old monitor 1st and saved myself $150.00 on a graphics card I didnt need
Asus makes a quality product10/9/2010
Went to different stores to look for a screen size that I would be comfortable with, couldn't find this size or price. From the product description online this sounded like the best and most reasonable match for me. This monitor hooks into my laptop and 24" display screen is perfect for my needs.
Great monitor!! Speakers suck, but that is to be expected.
Nice monitor, nice price9/21/2010
Clean, sharp display. Only using the VGA port, don't have an HDMI PC yet. The only quibble I have is the power button. The monitor is lightweight enough that pushing the button with any force causes the monitor to move. I have learned to hold the back of the monitor with one finger while pushing the power button with the thumb (right hand of course). Text I have found to be a problem on pretty much any digital display unless it's high-end. Could be a tad bit clearer on this one, but as a reviewer below noted, native resolution helps. May be better with HDMI? Will update when tested.
Great Deal, Large Monitor9/12/2010
This monitor looks absolutely awesome on my desk. I now have a dual monitor setup with a 19" monitor next to this one. The screen has no dead pixels and looks great. It took a few hours to get the dual monitor settings exactly as I want but I finally got it. This was easily one of the best deals available.
Easy to set up. No dead pixels. Lots of adjustments. Can hook up to just about anything. There is just a bit of light bleed on the bottom of the screen. This monitor had to be color, brightness & contrast adjusted (I've yet to get a LCD that didn't). To get text to look pretty it needs to run at native resolution (which refreshes at 60hz).
Very good monitor for the price. Have had it for only about a month, but am very satisfied with its quality of image and ease of use. Haven't used it to its full capability yet (using VGA instead of HDMI and have external speakers instead of using the internal ones in the monitor) and I still think that it's worth every penny. Once I get a new computer with an updated video card and outputs, it will be even better.
I've only had this monitor for about a month but am pleased so far. Very good monitor for the price. I was a little hesitant at first to buy a monitor from a company that is more well known for their motherboards. I've bought quite a few Asus mboards in the past and have never been disappointed. And since I've recently had a few issues with some monitors from a company known only for their monitors, I decided to try Asus. Again, I have not been disappointed. I'm only using the vga port because that's all the computer has. I think my next purchase will be a video card with a DVI or HDMI out to see how good the image would be then. I would definitely buy another Asus monitor.
I ordered this monitor and it arrived about 3 days after I paid for it. I hooked it up to my computer and everything on the screen is vibriant and looking great. The screen is just great. No problems encountered.
very good monitor and fast shipping
Asus VH242H 24" monitor8/22/2010
nice large screen, very clear. Good sleep function. does not get hot. If you have a smaller monitor, you're going to ask yourself why you didn't do this earlier.
The options of running VGA, DVI or HDMI input with automatic switching(if using multiple items) is great, or you can switch manually if you are multiple items and want to switch to another input. The screen is super clear and you can adjust to different pre adjusted brightness settings or you can adjust manually. the built-in speakers are ok, they could be louder but I mainly use a gaming headset. It is a little difficult to navigate thru the settings menu but it comes to you fast and then no problems of use. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and at a great price.
Got this monitor about a month ago. Shipped with no dead pixels and all working perfectly fine. Very hand that is has all 3 inputs, VGA DVI, and HDMI. Looks great with Blu-ray movies on my computer and high end gaming.
My monitor goes into sleep mode with HDMI8/24/2009
My HDMI connection is on my motherboard. First I get the familiar floating window, then it goes into sleep mode. For those whose monitor does not enter "sleep" mode, I suspect this is a function of their motherboard or video card.
Great viewing angle7/23/2009
I am very happy with the horizontal and vertical viewing angles. From reding reviews of other low priced LCDs I had the impression that I had to sit perpendicular to it. That is not the case. It is clear even when I sit on the side. Off-center 80 degrees. Amazing.
Asus 24 inch monitor7/20/2009
When I received the Buy dot com special deals e-mail which listed this 24 inch 1080P monitor for a very low price, I knew it was time to replace my aging 19 inch CRT. I'm connected using the VGA port on my desktop so the "sleep" issue others have had with HDMI don't affect me. When this monitor is set on 1920/1080 the output is nothing short of spectacular, perfect for online movies and for modifying pictures. Want a portable Blu Ray system? Connect a Blu Ray HDMI DVD player into this monitor and it will display the same excellent picture you get from a much more expensive 1080P TV at a fraction of the cost. Stereo speakers are built in. The monitor weighs only 16 pounds so it's easily relocated. Take your new Blu Ray setup with you on vacation!! The only feature of this excellent monitor that should be changed would be the small hard-to-see OSD control buttons on the bottom right of the display. They need to be farther apart and indentified with labels that the user can actually read. I didn't need this monitor, my old one was working fine. However, this quality (Full 1080P) and this size (24 inch) at this price were impossible to pass up. DVI, VGA, a stereo cable and the power cord are included.
I bought this monitor to replace my 19" Samsung 932BW. Talk about a nice change. With a 20000:1 contrast ratio at 1080p over an HDMI cable, this monitor brings out details that I didn't even notice on my other monitor. I gave ease of use a 4 out of 5, for the same reason the other reviewer did: You have to power the monitor down when connected via HDMI, (It doesn't automatically enter sleep mode). I didn't have any wobbling, and my stand is pretty sturdy. No problems with backlight bleeding either. My only issue so far is that The Sims 2's resolution settings top out at 1440 x 900, and this monitor can do 1920 x 1080. My other games run great on it, at the full 1920 x 1080, with no problems. For the price of what the big box stores charge for a smaller monitor with a crappy 3000:1 or less contrast ratio (and no HDMI), I got this 24" beauty.
Great 24" 16:9 monitor3/16/2009
Pros: Cheap 24" Monitor, Great screen for TN panel, HDMI/DVI/VGA inputs, SPDIF out, Decent speakers for integrated, beats speakers on my XPS M1530, No dead pixels for me, Native 1920x1080 (1080p) resolution for Xbox 360. Cons: Biggest issue is monitor doesn't sleep in HDMI mode. It will display blue screen, you have to turn it off manually, Stand isn't great, kinda woobles, Some backlight bleeding, not too much, OSD menu system is painful to use, No height adjustment. Make sure to adjust monitor mode to standard and calibrate the display.
