HASH(0x9d871804) out of 5 stars Excellent value June 13 2010

I've owned this monitor for 3 months and have had no problems. Screen is very bright and the colors vibrant (and appear true); contrast is terrific. Required no setup with Windows 7; just plug it into the computer port and you're ready to go. The screen has a non-reflective, matte surface so it works very well in a bright environment. There are quite a few customization settings (accessible through the familiar button interface on the front panel), but I didn't feel the need to adjust beyond usual brightness and contrast. Price is *significantly* lower than competitors, and performs as well as much more expensive monitors I've had in the past. Asus has a good reputation so I anticipate this monitor will last as long time.

HASH(0x9d871a2c) out of 5 stars The best LCD available in it's price range. Oct. 20 2010
By Marshall Carter - Published on
The Asus VH198T is easily one of the best LCD's available in its price class. The picture is vibrant and bright, helped greatly by this model's LED backlighting. For years LCD's have suffered from very poor contrast ratios that make blacks look more like charcoal grey, and while the 10,000,000 to one contrast (I'm assuming that's "dynamic contrast") is questionable at best, the fact is that contrast is much, much better than the LCD's of even just a year or two ago. The screen is bright, the colors are vivid, the blacks are deep and everything is sharp (when run at the proper resolution, anything less than the native 1440x900 will result in a blurry picture, although that's typical of all LCD's). The picture is simply the best I've seen on any similarly priced model.

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.

HASH(0x9d871c84) out of 5 stars Good replacement monitor for the price. Nov. 17 2010

Most people know ASUS from the motherboards they build not monitors--which might lead people to be skeptical about this product. I bought this monitor to replace my kid's Samsung 19in monitor and have to say I'm happy with the purchase. It works well on her Windows 7 machine. The big plus for this inexpensive monitor was the DVI connector which can be difficult to find in monitors at this price range. The colors and lighting are bright/crisp and can be easily adjusted to your personal preference. It doesn' generate much heat either. The monitor can be tilted up or down but can not move sideways unless you purchase a different bracket/stand for your monitor. I really didn't have any problems since this monitor was going to my kids. It comes with power, DVI, VGA and audio cables. It didn't review the speakers on the monitor since my kids use external speakers already.

HASH(0x9d871fc0) out of 5 stars Great monitor June 20 2010
By Jocelyn Salada - Published on
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for my dad, to replace his very old CRT monitor. The color and look is excellent and the 1440x900 screen resolution is perfect for his needs. Time will tell how well it holds up, but I'm pretty sure that this monitor will serve him well. For the price, I couldn't be happier with the purchase. He loves it too!

HASH(0x9d873228) out of 5 stars Great monitor, wobbly plastic stand Dec 4 2011
By medstudent1986 - Published on

The image quality on this monitor is outstanding, as noted in previous reviews. My only concern is that the stand that comes with the monitor is entirely plastic and a bit flimsy. The monitor is on the same desk as my keyboard, and when I type, the screen wobbles slightly (but noticeably) side to side. It won't fall over, but it's not steady either. I've had the monitor for two days and this problem is already annoying me to the point where I may return it. If you're planning to mount the monitor, this will not be a problem. Therefore, because of the poor quality of the included stand, I am giving this product only 3 stars.

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.
