      I'm amazed at the image quality on this low priced IPS monitor. I bought it to pair with my new Mac Mini because I didn't want to spend [$] for Apple's Thunderbolt display and didn't have room for a 27" monitor anyway. The sleek, modern, aluminum design goes great with the Mac Mini, the picture is outstanding and it even has built in speakers. At [$] with free shipping, how can you beat this?

      Although I barely use my MacMini and ASUS ASMX239H monitor, after just 10 months the display has developed a dark pink cast over the right half of the screen. Whites are no longer white, they are magenta. Looking into what the warranty from ASUS and/or B&H is, but so far very unhappy that I wasn't even able to get even a year out of this monitor with very limited use (and the monitor has always been shut off when not in use).

      The design looks great, and the reviews on the IPS were impressive which is why I waited as long as I did for it to become available to order it, however it has turned out to be a big disappointment. I would not recommend this model to anyone.

            I use the monitor for surfing, shopping, and keeping up with the real news of the day. I like the picture frame and the clearness of the picture. The only thing I have trouble with is the setting buttons are difficult to use. No manual how to use the different settings.

                    Great monitor...does what it is supposed to do. Nice image. Great style too for those who want a nice looking monitor to pair with a Mac Mini or other Mac desktop without paying $ just for the monitor. It isn't a Thunderbolt display but it is really nice.

                          Replaced an older 19" monitor for at home use. This 23" monitor fits nicely in my somewhat limited space. Speakers built into a monitor are sometimes of marginal quality but these have been fine for me.

                              Comments about ASUS MX239H 23" Widescreen LED Backlit IPS Monitor:

                              I've been using a Sony Trinitron CRT since 1998 so buying a new monitor was a major learning curve experience. I got a lot of good suggestions from the helpful staff at B&H and I am sure there are many quality monitors which would have worked out for me but this one is more than adequate.

                              As an artist I was looking for a monitor without distracting features like shiny edges or screen. This ASUS has a very sleek edge on top and sides and brushed aluminum bottom. There are controls located under the right side of the monitor to control picture quality with preset functions: SRBG, theater, game, standard, night time, scenery. There are also many other options but unfortunately there are no detailed instructions and even the company website downloadable instructions leave a lot to be desired. So I am still trying to figure out the finer points and for that give 4 stars.

                              As far as the picture quality is concerned, I like the image quality, the size, and the overall appearance. I was concerned over not having a vertical adjustment, but that has not been an issue.

                              I also really like the sound quality which is an improvement over the internal speaker in my Mac Mini. Set up is very easy and the monitor is also compatible with an older Mac G4 which has some programs I did not want to upgrade/replace. Reasonable price was a plus.

                              Thanks, B&H for your great service!

                                Hooked up with a 2013 MacBook Air via mini display>VGA. Very easy setup. The colors are nice as well as the viewing angle. The slightly matte surface keeps fingerprints away. This monitor looks aesthetically pleasing.

                                    I did a lot of research on monitors before buying this one. In this price range, I couldn't find a better monitor. I use it for my general computing and post processing photos in LR. The colors are accurate and the LED Backlit IPS screen in easy on your eyes. (sharper image=less eyestrain). It's not height adjustable, but it does tilt.

                                      I'm amazed at the image quality on this low priced IPS monitor. I bought it to pair with my new Mac Mini because I didn't want to spend [$] for Apple's Thunderbolt display and didn't have room for a 27" monitor anyway. The sleek, modern, aluminum design goes great with the Mac Mini, the picture is outstanding and it even has built in speakers. At [$] with free shipping, how can you beat this?

                                      Got this as a Father's Day gift. No dead pixels and the colors are awesome. It's a little smaller than my old monitor but its not that bad. The black border around the edge throws me off a little, I keep trying to adjust it to the edge but that is the edge. Also I wish I could adjust the height a little, not just tilt it up.

                                        Beautiful screen resolution. The 23" screen dimension is perfect for a desk top computer. Just plug and play. If you need to adjust the screen, I changed the brightness from 100% down to 90%, the control buttons and their placement work very well and require just a very delicate touch. The stand is very appealing and sturdy, but should be 2 1/2" taller. This is easy to remedy with outdated hard cover books or building a nice wood platform. Speakers sound is excellent.

                                            Use this monitor for gaming, browsing, and online tv. It's great for everything. Has several presets that help manage the brightness. One setting auto dims the screen, but seems to be brightest when a majority of the screen is white, which seems backwards of how I would expect a feature like this to work. The menu can be a bit hard to navigate, but the touch sensors, rather than real buttons just take some getting sused to
