5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 27 Feb 2012
Spent hours looking for a new monitor, kept coming back to this one. Finely bit the bullet and went for the Asus.What a great bit of kit! Worked straight out of the box, no faffing about, plugged in, turned on, worked straight away. And the picture!! Absolutely great.If you`re looking for a high resolution monitor go for this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asus VS228H 15 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
For £111 i am not complaining, this is by far one of the best monitors i have ever used. Absolute joy, just plug it in and you're ready to go. Have never seen a better picture on a computer monitor, truly fantastic. Both hdmi and vga gives a 1080p picture. Well pleased and arrived 3 days earlier than the estimate! Was sent via Yodel and do not understand the bad press this company gets, efficient shipping, arrived a day and a half after dispatch(the whole way from england to northern ireland in less than 2 days!) and the delivery man was a gentleman, even talked to me about computers when delivering, i came to expect from all the bad reviews that Yodel delivery men were horrible but that was not the case. 10/10 for the product and 10/10 for yodel's outstanding service.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good monitors - shame about the stand 12 Feb 2012
I bought two of these for my nw PC - and they arrived with no 'dead pixels' and are very easy to set up.
You should be aware (and I had to search long and hard before buying to get a definitive answer about this question) that these monitors do not have speakers!
They do process sound over hdmi though and you can connect speakers to the earphone out sockets on the back.
This isn't a bad thing as speakers on monitors of this price tend to be very tinny and rubbish - so very happy to supplement with my own speakers.

Two small gripes with these mnitors though:
1. The stands are (as good as) fixed. I plan to get a twin monitor mount and get rid of the stock stands as they are not very adjustable.
2. One of the two monitors didn't come with a UK 3-pin kettle power cable - just the two-pin euruopean one. I didn't bother going back to the seller over this as I had a bunch of them from an old machine.

Otherwise - they appear very responsive (good for gaming or movies, though at 60hz refresh - some films may suffer a little during 'panning' shots.
The range of these monitors is fantastic - LED tchnology is much superior to LCD technology... also the viewing angle is about 175 degrees without any distortin or abboration.
The choice of inputs is great too... VGA, DVI or HDMI with sound processing over HDMI for a full HD HDCP compliant system.
The frame is plastic - but it doesn;t feel like it has been badly built or that corners have been cut.
The buttons are in a nice position (to the right below the frame) which makes it almost impossible to knock them accidently - though when first setting up it is easy to push the wrong buttons until you get the hang of exactly how the on screen menu display works.

I am VERY impressed with this monitor, I can't think of any bad points.

The stand has a very nice design to it and is sturdy, it doesn't shake at all and the quality is brilliant, It's definitely the best monitor I've ever had and I recommend it to anyone looking to game on.

5.0 out of 5 stars really nice... 19 Sep 2011
This is a very nice monitor, its bright and clear because of the LED backlight
Has lots of differnet pre built modes with a touch of the a button, though the only two I use is "Gaming Mode/Standard Mode"...
The colour is bright and full, the colour is so good on the "Splendid Mode Feature" it clearly burns my eyes.
