What do users not like about this product?
- Not VESA Compatible
- Weak Speakers
The ASUS VX238H-W is not VESA mount compatible, so in order to place it on the wall you are going to need to be a little creative and crafty or simply buy the appropriate adapter with the monitor. Moreover, the stand cannot be detached from the screen making it a bit harder to be used for multi-display.
We found that the built-in stereo speakers don’t exactly scream quality. Understandably, these speakers are only meant to be used as an alternative. Still, they might come in handy and there’s even a volume button as one of the monitor’s hot keys.
The ASUS VX238H-W monitor has a TN Panel, however, the amount of Backlight Bleed is next to none and so are the issues with its viewing angles. Considering that the monitor has a 25° tilting angle, you will be able to adjust the proper angle for you.
Who is this product for?
ASUS VX238H-W‘s incredible price makes it desirable by all; many have deemed it the best monitor available for under $200. It offers excellent picture quality and resolution, exclusive features useful for every day use and semi-professional work – and on top of all that it’s great for gaming with its fast response time. The design looks good and so does the price!
