---(UPDATE at the end)---
I did quite a bit of research before buying this, comparing other monitors and reading reviews. I was deciding between this monitor and Asus VC239H 23 inch Full HD IPS LCD Monitor (16:9, 80M:1, 250 cd/m2, 1920 x 1080, 5 ms, VGA/HDMI/DVI) . At the end, I decided to buy this "#1 Best Seller in Monitors".
And I agree. It's probably the best monitor out there in terms of the specs, price and quality. This monitor is absolutely amazing. A 24-inch monitor, 1ms, Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) and supporting each of the different inputs of 1 x D-Sub (VGA) 1 x DVI-D 1 x HDMI 1 and a Headphone Out (3.5mm Audio). And all of this for more or less £100! No need to spend ££ more. This has everything you want, including wall mount (VESA Wall Mount Standard (100 x 100 mm). There are instructions on how to remove the stand. I reckon this is a mid to high-range monitor.
Two power cords are included. One EU 2pin and one UK 3pin. VGA and DVI cable is included. No HDMI cable is included and I think ASUS should've included this as many would use HDMI nowadays. So I used my own HDMI cable which I had lying around. I would recommend HDMI as it transfers digital/visual data & audio data all in one cable. The DVI cable does the same but HDMI is smaller and has higher quality. The VGA cable would only transfer digital/visual data onto the screen so you would need a separate audio cable if you use VGA.
When I used the VGA to see how it is, the monitor was showing my home-screen. When I used my HDMI, it wasn't showing anything. I was a bit worried but then I realised I had to select the input for HDMI. All I had to do was press the input button (next to the power button) twice.
I've seen the difference in quality when using a VGA vs. a HDMI cable. Believe me. Use HDMI.
Once I got it all set up, the screen was quite bright. But before I decreased the contrast and the brightness (which is so easy to do), I did a LCD DeadPixel Test using [Search on Google]. In my research, I've read that a lot of people were getting dead pixels. I was taking no chance whatsoever. So I did the tests and all pixels were active. So I knew I had no pixel problems.
You can toggle through different modes: Standard Mode, Theater Mode, Game Mode, Night View Mode, sRGB and Scenery Mode. - With a press of a button. Changing image (sharpness, aspect control, position, focus, etc.) and colour (saturation, smart view, brightness, contrast, etc.) settings are easy too. However, I didn’t need to change any of these except for the brightness and contrast.
Watching videos and going through images: incredible quality. The monitor itself is good quality, including the stand- which was really easy to put on (see pics).
The monitor has a 50/60Hz refresh rate and CAN also be tilted. See pic.
It's also good to know that the energy rating is A+
I've read through the documentations and I noticed ASUS's defect Policy which may be useful for you to know.
Warranty service provided if there are at least:
"More than 3 bright dots or 5 dark dots from 0 to 36 months"...
"A bright dot is a white or sub-pixel that is always on under BLACK pattern. A dark dot is a black or sub-pixel that is always off under patterns excluding black."
^So basically, 3 white pixels or 5 black pixels.
Also, you may have read that it comes with a 'free' DOOM game. The promotional code is emailed to you after couple of days. This is on offer up until 31st August 2016. I have not and WILL NOT use this as I don’t play those kinds of games AND more importantly, in the Terms and Conditions, it says:
"ASUS is eligible to charge you €59.99 as DOOM game key payment if you return the product".
So for those who buy the monitor & use the code and then decide to return the monitor after a week or so, you will be charged €59.99 (£51).
RECOMMENDATIONS when buying Monitor
-Do research. Know what you are buying.
-Budget of £100 or so. You can get a GREAT monitor for around £100.
-24inch. It's a good size. More than 24inch (i.e. 32inch) would degrade pixel quality when watching something in HD at CLOSE view (which you would do on a desk). For example, a 24inch monitor at 5ft would give the same view as 48inch monitor at 10ft. The only difference is that those pixels have been enlarged on the 48inch. Hence the degrade in pixel quality when viewed at close view.
-Full HD (1920 x 1080). Best quality giving best user experience.
-Less than 5ms. How fast pixels can change. Lower is better. Reduces the ghosting effect when pixel changes (i.e. in videos). Less than 5 is ideal although I don't think the difference between a 1ms monitor and a 5ms monitor would be much and it’s not something I really looked into.
-Around 60Hz. How many times the display refreshes its’ image. Higher is better. This monitor is 50/60Hz (says it at the back of the monitor), which is good for normal use. If you play heavy gaming, look at 100+Hz. It should be ok though. Again, I don’t think the difference would be much and it’s not something I really looked into.
-No less than 200 cd/m2. [=Candelas per Square Meter]. It's the measure of brightness of how well the screen will show in brightly lit environments. So it depends- it may be an issue for you or not. E.g. If you have a window giving bright light into the room, drowning out the screen. I have a bright light coming into my room and I have no problems using the monitor.
-Avoid glossy screen display. Shadow reflections / glare would be terrible. The bezels around the monitor are not a problem - Hardly notice it at all.
-Supports all three inputs: VGA, DVI and HDMI. You would have these ports available in case you need them. Like VGA for a Digital Video Recorder (DVR).
-Has some sort of Audio: 3.5mm audio or built in speakers. I would prefer built in speakers but I'' be using external speaker anyways. I don't think the built-in speakers in monitors would be good anyways. So just get a pair of external speakers and in the meantime, use your headphones.
-Ability to tilt. If you're tall, you wouldn't want the monitor to face your chest.
-Check it's the right size for you. E.g. Would it fit on your desk? (See attached pics for sizes)
-Minimum 2 years warranty. This monitor has 3 years with the 1st year being with Amazon (you would have to contact Amazon after 30 days if you need help).
-Buy New from "Dispatched and Sold by Amazon". Avoid any other sellers, including sellers that are fulfilled by Amazon. Reduce the chance of getting a defect. It would also be an easy process with Amazon if something was to go wrong.
CONS // How it could have been improved...
-Higher stand: from the base of the stand to the base of the monitor. It's permanent at 7cm. It's not a problem for me but maybe it could've been customisable (adjust it higher/lower)?
-The power and the input ports could've been vertical rather than horizontal (see pic).
-Like another reviewer said, the audio port would've been better on the sides rather than on the back. Then it would've been easier to plug and unplug headphone.
-External speakers with the audio port would be nice.
-When the headphone is plugged in and a sound is played, there is a static noise for around 20seconds, even if the volume is decreased. You can't hear the static noise when something is being played. It goes away after no sound has been played for around 20sec and comes back on after a sound has been played.
This is the only main concern.
Great product at an incredible price. Packaged well and delivered well on time.100% recommended.
Please go through the attached images I have taken. The image of the back of the monitor includes 2 pics from Google and 1 from Amazon.
I've tried my very best to be as thorough as possible.
-------UPDATE (after 27days)-------
The monitor has been great but after using the monitor for couple of weeks, I've noticed a problem. Every so often, a 5cm line (dead pixels) kept appearing on the top left of the screen. (See pic). I've tried various tests (resetting, pixel tests...) to see if it would stop the line from appearing. As it was still there, I returned the defect one and got a replacement within two days. Nevertheless, unexpected things happen sometimes and this is why it's important to buy these kind of items from "Dispatched and Sold by Amazon".- they sorted everything out quickly without any issues.
Now with the replacement monitor, everything looks good and I hope all goes well. I still recommend this monitor.
-------END of UPDATE-------
Any questions regarding about this item, please leave a comment and I'll try to get back to you ASAP.
I would really appreciate it if you marked this review as helpful or not so that I can improve my future reviews.
However im not happy with the packaging, there was no Fragile stickers or anything to suggest it might be a vulnerable package, it was a red plastic bag inside a box, the box it came in was damaged luckily the screen appears to be ok but packaging need to be better.
