This is a great monitor. I upgraded from a 3 year old 19 inch LCD HP monitor that i got when i bought my computer.

I bought this one mainly for the fact it has HDMI input for my PS3 and for the Size of the screen.

I was amazed at how much bigger it is compared to my old one. Its only 4 inches bigger but seems much more.

The picture quality is fantastic, especially when playing PS3 in full 1080p HD. The 3 inputs are very handy as I have my PC connected with VGA, my Xbox 360 with DVI and my PS3 with HDMI, all 3 can be acsessed with just one button.

Overall i would highly recommend this monitor as it is very good value for money.

Took delivery of this monitor today, and boy am I glad I bought it.

First up, what came in the box:
Monitor (obviously)
Stand
Two power cords - one with the 3 pin UK plug, and one with the 2 pin european style - may actually be US??)
One VGA cable
One DVI cable
One audio cable
CD
Manual

Setting the monitor up was very straight forward - the screen just clips onto the stand, all the cables fit neatly and easy to do so.

I have this plugged into my Mac Mini via DVI and had absolutely no problems getting a picture.

There are about 5 or 6 buttons on the front for Power, switching between DVI/VGA/HDMI etc, and On Screen Menu

Yep, this monitor can be used with HDMI for your blu-ray or xbox etc, and you can use DVI or VGA for your computer.

Screen is very clear, though I had read that some people need to adjust the brightness the first time - but I haven't

For the £185 that I paid, this monitor seems to be extremely good value for not only size, but also the fact it has DVI, VGA and HDMI.

I believe there are speakers in the monitor, but haven't tried using them - again, other reviews indicate they are "ok" quality.

After looking at many different 24-26" LCD monitor specs and comparing prices, I decided to order the 'Asus 24" VH242H' because it features impressive specs (24" screen size, inbuilt speakers, 2 audio outputs (digital and analogue) so you can hook it up to a sound system, full 1920x1080p HD resolution, HDMI, DVI, VGA ports, and offered the best value for money compared to the other LCD monitors I looked at. It also comes with DVI and VGA leads.

I have owned the Asus 24" VH242H LCD monitor for 4 days as of writing this review and have been using it between 7-9 hours each day to perform work related tasks, play PC/Playstation 3 games and watch Blu ray Discs.

Although the monitors default image settings set by the manufacture offered a good overall picture quality, I decided to invest 15 minutes fine tuning the image settings to achieve the perfect image and colour.

Once I had finished fine tuning the image settings, games and high definition content look and play amazingly on this monitor, even better than on my 42" Philips 1920x1080p HD Television!

The monitor feels and looks great! For a monitor of this size (24") It is surprisingly light to pick up by hand and move to the desired location you wish to put it.

This is the perfect monitor for PC work related tasks and PC/Playstation 3 gaming.

I purchased this monitor in January this year and I am very happy with it. I've been using it for over two months now and had no problems with it so I am able to give it a decent review after an extended "trial" period. At first I thought 24 inches might be too big for a general use monitor but actually it's the perfect size. I can fit two and sometimes three windows side by side which makes a lot of jobs so much quicker or I can have one window open for "work" ie a browser or a word document etc, and on the other side of the screen I can have windows media player playing a video (small size) or I can watch the aforesaid video in full 24 inch screen size!

I did initially purchase a different monitor, a cheaper Samsung one, but it was not satisfactory and I returned it and replaced it with this one. It does cost more but I think it really makes a difference. I don't use it for gaming so I can't comment on that but I use it for everything else including general stuff like office documents, web browsing and music, videos, photo editing etc, and it is brilliant. One of the problems I had with the other monitor was the Viewing Angle. Until I started researching this I didn't have much idea about this but soon learned that it's quite important. I tried to find a monitor with the ideal Viewing Angle that was in my price range but that was impossible. This monitor actually has a similar if not same Viewing Angle -Viewing Angle (CR?10): 170°(H)/160°(V) - as the one I returned, however this monitor somehow gives me a perfect picture from all angles and distances from the computer. It also has an adjustable/tilting stand which does help if you need to use it and adjust the angle. I think it can also be wall mounted if required.

This monitor comes with a VGA cable, a DVI cable and a speaker cable.
To make use of the monitor's speakers either use the speaker cable as well as the video cable of your choice or connect the monitor with an HDMI cable (if your system has HDMI capability) which has built-in audio.

For me the best option is an HDMI cable so that I could still use my 2.1 sound system. Switch between the two by right-clicking the speaker symbol in the system tray and select 'Playback devices'.

Problem with HDMI connection
============================
However when I connected via an HDMI cable the monitor image was not full-size and had a black band around it. I checked the resolution - correct at 1920 X 1080. The problem was the monitor was under scanning. Apparently this is only a problem with AMD Radeon graphics not Nvidia Graphics.

Solution
========
Go to the AMD website and download and install AMD Catalyst software

[...]

This updates your video driver to work with AMD catalyst software and allow you to adjust the underscan for a full-size display.
