    This is my first IPS display at home (had one at work, but honestly it was an aging Dell that had CCFL backlight, and it didn't seem that impressive). I was deciding between this and the Dell U2312H.

    This display has a great balance. I don't like to pay a lot, and this one is really reasonable. The screen is not glossy; the matte finish means I don't have to look at reflections all day.

    As you'd expect from IPS, the viewing angles are great, and the colors are noticeably better than my Samsung TN panel. The upgrade is subtle though, after a few days, I don't really notice it anymore until I switch back.

    Just remember, the stand is really poor - it is two inches tall. It is not possible for 90% of desk and person configurations to set it up ergonomically without some kind of stand or propping it on some harry potter books.

    One other CON: it flashes blue with "No HDMI Signal" when I put my computer to sleep. I wish it were less blinding when I'm about to go to bed.

    Persistent wobble, poor out-the-box calibration, and lack of intuitive controls will be frustrating for many.

    The Asus VS239H-P monitor is marketed as a budget-friendly IPS (in-plane switching) monitor. For those who work with hex/rgb colors on a regular basis or are in the graphic design field, an IPS monitor should offer a welcome alternative to old TN panel technology due to its considerably better color rendition and viewing angles that do not distort (or only minimally distort) the appearance of colors.

    If you're considering the Asus VS239H-P, be aware of the following:

    1) The base does not fit snugly into the monitor, which means that the slightest vibration or touching of the monitor (including pushing the power switch on and off) causes it to shake. This appears to be a design defect. My personal experience aside, the VS239H-P problem has also been widely reported all over the internet (if you do a Google search for "Asus VS239H-P wobbly" you'll see what I mean). After an hour of constant shaking you'll be running for your old 25 lb. Dell 1704 FPT.

    2) The monitor is pretty much unusable out of the box and needs to be extensively calibrated, which is not an easy task for the VS239H-P.

    3) The VS239H-P can be calibrated using the 5 buttons located under the bottom right of the monitor. However, these controls are not intuitive and there is no guide that tells you how to use them. Accordingly, you have to keep trying until you figure out which button does what. Also, be aware that you will likely have to use a separate calibration software program to get the colors right.

                This is a fantastic monitor. I was equally impressed by B&H's service. When I was told by UPS that the montor was delivered a week before (which i never recieved) B&H offered to replace the missing monitor. Luckily the monitor showed up the next day so a replacement wasn't needed. But it's nice to know they're there in emergencies.

                I recently built a computer that is mainly being used for photo and video editing. I am not a pro but just your average amateur that enjoys the hobby. So far I have been very please with the monitor. Much better than the laptop I had been using. Colors look good and I did adjust the settings with a Spyder 3. I was on a pretty tight budget and his is a good value for the money. You are not going to be able to adjust the height, etc. It does sit pretty low. I am hoping in the future to go with a dual monitor so I will be adding a seperate mount then.

                Stand that comes this is a bit chinchy, but it has standard VESA mount so easy to put it on a stand or swivel from 3rd party supply, such as the monoprice stands which can be had for under $20.

                After much research I decided upon the Asus VS239H-P. IPS panel for accurate color and good definition, and price sold me. Initially I was looking at 24" monitors and they were a little too expensive. The rebate ? Turns out the rebate is not cash but a credit card that must be used - and 1 4-6 week waiting period.I ran a black screen and then a white screenNo dead pixels. Much better if they simplify this and either give a cash refund or deduct the rebate from the start. I'm really enjoying this monitor. I work in video and graphics and sound.

                    Comments about ASUS VS239H-P 23" LED Backlit Widescreen Monitor:

                    This is my first IPS display at home (had one at work, but honestly it was an aging Dell that had CCFL backlight, and it didn't seem that impressive). I was deciding between this and the Dell U2312H.

                    This display has a great balance. I don't like to pay a lot, and this one is really reasonable. The screen is not glossy; the matte finish means I don't have to look at reflections all day.

                    As you'd expect from IPS, the viewing angles are great, and the colors are noticeably better than my Samsung TN panel. The upgrade is subtle though, after a few days, I don't really notice it anymore until I switch back.

                    Just remember, the stand is really poor - it is two inches tall. It is not possible for 90% of desk and person configurations to set it up ergonomically without some kind of stand or propping it on some harry potter books.

                    One other CON: it flashes blue with "No HDMI Signal" when I put my computer to sleep. I wish it were less blinding when I'm about to go to bed.

                      Bought to create a dual monitor set up. Used Avia disk to adjust as it is way too bright at factory settings. Love the color and the wide view. No dead pixels seen. The stand is a little wobbly-you will note this when you turn on the unit as you have to push up at the corner to activate. Have had a little trouble with flickering when mouse cursor goes across screen (?some setting on my Dell XPS 8300 off?) Am using the HDMI input. I thought it might be a little sharper, but overall very pleased.

                      I have it connected as the primary display for my home desktop computer. It works great! I am not particularly apt at discerning between two very similar shades of colors, but even so I think this monitor has great colors and brightness. I'm not a heavy gamer, but I do enjoy playing computer games that can be visually intense and so far I have no complaints with the display.

                      My only qualm is that the stand is a little wobbly. I have it sitting on my desk and if I bump the monitor or try to move it, the screen wobbles side to side for a few seconds.

                      I am using 3 of these monitors for graphic design, 3d modeling, video editing, and gaming on the side.

                      The good: For the price these IPS monitors are great. The picture is good and it looks pretty good for whatever application I am using.

                      The bad: I have noticed back light bleeding with each of them, especially when the screen is dark. I guess it was to be expected for the price. Also, when looking from bad angles from the sides, I noticed a bluish tint to them, not a big deal since I only notice it from those bad angles.
