1.0 out of 5 stars ASUS VE247H - Not worth buying., 10 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ASUS VE247H 24 inch LED Widescreen Full HD 1080p Support with HDMI 2ms Response Time Splendid? Video Intelligence Technology (Accessory)
I received the monitor quickly (albeit via a VERY grumpy DPD courier driver) and upon setting the monitor up and turning it on for the first time, I noticed several dead pixels at the bottom of the screen (they were showing white) and the back-light lighting consistency was terrible. You had to be looking directly at the monitor. If you moved your head up, down, left or right the lighting and colours of the photos, videos, movies etc shifted really badly. I don't understand how so many people can be happy with this monitor when the viewing experience is so bad. My advice is to not buy this specific monitor, but to buy a monitor that has a price exceeding £200 that doesn't use LED Backlit technology. Great return and refund service from Amazon, though! Avoid this monitor.

Do the speakers still work if you connect your pc using VGA?

Mr. D. McKie says:
Considering the amount of positive reviews, It's safe to say your the unlucky sod to receive a damaged monitor

The Monitor it's self is very good and has won awards for it, so please ignore Mr. J. Jones' last comment and enjoy your buy! :)

Mr. J. Jones says:
Firstly - itself, not 'it's self' :-) Agreed, I probably did receive a bad monitor. But I've every right to write a review... and people also have the right to read it and they don't need telling what to do, Mr. McKie. Basically if you do a lot of video editing (like me), this isn't the monitor for you. It over-exaggerates contrast and colours (hence the high contrast ratio) and the back-light shifting is a major issue if you're trying to colour correct video. This is one of the main reasons I returned the monitor, as well as the dead pixels. Hopefully this will explain things a little better than my initial review.

no speakers wont work throught VGA, you either need a audio cable or HDMI, although i would suggest a cheap £30-50 pair of speakers the sound would be 10x better.

No, HDMI carries sounds, VGA only carries the picture.
