Consumers generally like this monitor, but an expert's Asus VS247H-P review at PC World deems the display merely average, awarding it three out of five stars. The expert likes the picture quality, but hedges a bit, saying it's not on a par with other 23- and 24-inch monitors that cost a bit more. Still, the monitor wins points in reviews for solid color and sharp text and for a price that keeps it in entry-level territory despite its upscale size. Users who posted reviews at Amazon approve of its gaming chops and along with consumers who commented at Newegg, they praise the lush colors, sharp images, and brightness.

The Asus VS247H-P (starting at $179, Amazon) is a widescreen 23.6-inch LED display with 1920x1080 resolution. It boasts a mere 2ms response time and its brightness maxes out at 300cd/m, higher than that of most budget monitors. The VS247H-P includes an HDMI input, DVI-D input, and D-sub input and comes packaged with DVI and VGA cables. It can be mounted on a wall or tilted fore and aft, and it bears the Energy Star insignia.

The Asus VS247H-P is an affordable larger display that has some nice features, including an HDMI port and a very fast response time. You can kick up the brightness on this display quite a bit more than on other cheap monitors. Having said that, the Asus VS247H-P's performance isn't particularly outstanding. It's a good display, but the only realm in which it really stands apart from most other 24-inch displays is its low price.
