            Comments about ASUS VE228H 21.5" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

            I bought this monitor to connect to my macbook with an HDMI cable. It works great, but it took me a little time to figure out because all that came up was that is was reading the VGA signal. It wasn't coming up that it was reading the HDMI that was plugged in. I figured it out though... You have to press the source button (box with the arrow) a few times to get the source to HDMI. My other monitors that I've used have just automatically read it and connected. So part of it was ignorance on my part. Just wanted to help anyone else that was having trouble getting the signal to read.

                    Monitor is nice for the price. The sound is horrible but once I changed the settings to allow the sound to play thru the laptop again and not the monitor I was happy. My only complaint is the lack of crispness of the text using the HDMI cable. It is not a problem with this monitor as it happens on all monitors running 1080p w/ an hdmi input. Pictures are clear and the colors are close enough for my needs. YOu can color calibrate but I don't bother for my needs.

Provides excellent amount of space for work to be done, and I'm a college student, so the more space, the better. Even if you're a gamer, I would still consider this monitor because of it's rich quality!

                            I bought the VE228H as a second monitor for daily use and so far it hasn't dissapointed me. The image is very clear and the colors are crisp. I was able to get a good image from both of my laptops with little adjustment on the monitor. The operation buttons (menu, brightness/contrast adjustment, input switching, etc) are very easy to use. And all of that for only $ :-)The only issue I could find is that there's no height adjustment on this monitor, which could be a little annoying. So far though, because I'm using it with laptops, it has not been much of an issue.

                              I use this monitor to switch between a PC on DVI and a Mac on HDMI.
                              Monitor in this price range with two digital input is limited in choice.
                              it is among the ones and it also has the speaker.

                              I would say this is a monitor with good value.

                              I wanted two digital inputs based on numerous negative reviews on KVM switches for DVI ports, especially from those who wanted to use them with full HD (1920x1080).

                              I am pleased with the quality of the picture.
                              The sound is not the best, but is acceptable.

                              I do not use its VGA input, so I would have liked to have the ability of skipping it when switching the inputs, but have not figure out a way to do it.

                                  The image and splendid settings on it work great.
                                  The speakers on it are pretty useless (which is why it gets 4 stars instead of 5), however it will decode your HDMI audio and output it through its line out port so you can use desktop speakers, which was perfect for my setup since the computer is in a completely different room.

                                  The stand for it is a bit useless, the only adjustment is tilt, so you may want to consider a different stand for it if you are picky about that sort of thing. One other note, the VESA mount points are on a slightly curved surface, so I had to use spacers (about 1/4") when attaching it to the VESA mount so as not to stress the plastic cabinet.

                                  Play games, facebook, email, just everything, this monitor is great. I can now actually see what I'm doing. LOL

                                  I would however recommend external speakers as the one in this monitor even though I have it on the loudest setting is not loud enough. If you have something like a fan running in the back ground it's hard to hear the sound.
