I work in IT procurement and we had been buying HP LCD's, but I gave Asus a shot based on the reputation they've earned through their components and netbooks, and I'm very glad I did. I've deployed nearly 200 of these at various locations and I have yet to experience one with a burnt or stuck pixel. I realize that's probably just luck, but some LCD's have been prone to having them. I think it's safe to say that the VH198T isn't one of them.
If there is anything to complain about (you know, for the sake of complaining, full disclosure and all that stuff), then I'd have to point at the speakers. Most people would much prefer to use separate speakers or headphones with their PC, but in the event that you're planning to use the dual 1 watt speakers built-in to the VH198T, you're probably going to want to upgrade. They're ok for listening to voicemails or maybe some streaming talk radio, but are sorely lacking for music or gaming. Also, as mentioned, the sticker at the bottom of the LCD does leave residue on the bezel, and it's very difficult to get off. That's the end of my gripes.
Overall, I can't recommend the VH198T enough. I'll continue to purchase them until it reaches end of life.
Also, the box says this monitor is an LED, but the included paper manual says it is an LCD and the ASUS website says it is an LCD in one place and an LED in another. I'm still not sure what it is.
