    My 13" notebook screen is hard on my eyes and I need extra screen real estate. I don't have a lot of room so opted for the 21.5" rather than the 23".

    One of my laptops has only VGA output and the VE228H flickers - harder to tell when white background of most browsers/applications.

          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.

                  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.

                                    For the price, I'm very impressed overall. Speaker sound quality is nothing to get excited about, but I didn't need much. The volume buttons are shared with the contrast buttons, and it's not clear how you select which you want to adjust, but eventually it adjusts what you want. We've just turned the monitor volume all the way up, and control it from the computer.

                                        If you're looking for a solid 1920x1080 monitor at a budget price there is no reason not to consider the VE228H 21.5" widescreen LED backlit monitor from ASUS.

                                        Don't count on it at all for audio, use external speakers for that. Pleased with very fast delivery from B&H Photo Video. Great price, nice product, good overall experience thus far. I purchased two and use in a dual-screen setup for Windows 7 Pro. I have a high-end computer (Serenity model) from Puget Systems with Nvidia graphics to drive the dual-displays. If you're buying a new PC then go straight to Puget Systems, incredible product.

                                          I use this monitor for traditional non-gaming home use. Great for viewing HD video, pictures, etc from my desktop and laptop computers. Also displays great picture quality with satellite television input. Purchased first VE228H monitor more than 1 year ago. Decided to purchase the same one for consistency of look, use, and performance. Interface and software are slightly different, but overall a fantastic product. Well more than I need for my home use display purposes.Only problem I ever had was a smacked the display really hard with a USB port cable. Did not crack the display. Very minimal damage. Pixels survived unaffected, material covering the affected pixels show signs of blemish <1mm^2 area
