Product Alert:IPS (In-Plane-Switching) is a new technology for LCD displays that offers users wider viewing angles and bolder colors by allowing more light to pass through the panel. As a result, IPS panels can exhibit a slight glow around the edges and corners (also known as light bleed), which is entirely normal.

The monitor has a clear picture, good color, and works great.

After researching many other 23-inch IPS monitors, the ASUS VS239H-P appeared to be one of the best products available.
Great looking monitor, been using it for over a year now with no problems.

Size Name: 23 Inch
First off to address the complaints of "graininess" observed by some owners due to the matte finish: Lower your brightness! The pearly shimmery effect is only noticeble at the maximum 100% brightness which is around 270 cd/m2 (~20 cd/m2 higher than advertised). However, at the max brightness level, most users would find it uncomfortable to use for more than 30 minutes anyway. The factory settings are only set to this max limit to impress buyers in stores and when they turn on the monitor for the first time! The recommended comfortable brightness level for any monitor during regular use is 120 cd/m2 which translates to a setting of 35-40% brightness on this model. The user can easily change this setting through the OSD menu using the built in buttons.

Price - Comparable e-IPS displays from other manufacturers are $200+ (see LG)

e-IPS panel - Viewable from virtually any angle

Matte display - Reflections from nearby lights do not impact the display. Great for nightime/sunlight users.

Negligible ghosting - 5ms response time combined with the built in Trace-free feature set to 60 eliminates most ghosting. This makes the monitor great for gaming and HD video watching. Only professional FPS players would need a higher response time.

Thin - Roughly the thickness of a MacBook Pro! Very slim on a desk or a mount

100mm VESA - Standard mounting holes w/ removable black rubber covers to hide the holes for users that prefer to rock the stand (blends in if not mounted)

Power efficient - 24-30 W after calibration

3 yr warranty/exchange: Asus will replace your monitor within 3 years and pay for shipping both ways. I haven't tried this myself, but I hear Asus customer service is above average for the industry.

Size Name: 21.5 Inch Verified Purchase
So far I am very satisfied with the monitors. These are actually my first IPS and I can say I am simply amazed and the picture. Before I go on let me post my settings because out of the box settings are the WORST and will make you want to return the item.

Splendid: Theater
Sharpness: 45
Trace Free: 80
Brightness: 90
Contrast: 78
Saturation: 70
Color Temp: User Mode with all colors maxed
Skin Tone: Natural
Smart View: Off

With those settings everything should look great IMO. I actually bought 3 monitors because I am running SLI configuration for programming and for gaming. Because I have such a small desk, at the moment, I had to angle the monitors 75 degrees from the center monitor. So if you can picture that in your mind, I want to say I have NO problem seeing anything. The colors still look great and gaming is just as fun. Only problem (this is not the monitors fault) is my head hurts from turning lol, just wanted to share that :P

Some might ask if the 21 inch is too small. I can say I was worried about this too because I was using my PS3 3d display beforehand and can say that text is a fraction of a bit smaller. Unless you have really bad eyes, these monitors are perfect size. I also like the size because I have heard the bigger you go, the more you can see the LED backlight. In my case I can say on a totally black screen I see MINOR backlighting; nothing that would make the screen look awful, don't let that turn you away from the monitor.

Some reviewers have had bad outcomes with dead pixels and what not, I bought 3. Not one of them has had any problem except for user error. This user error was I thought all 3 monitors were dead because when I "touched" the power button it didn't respond.

Size Name: 23 Inch Verified Purchase
I just bought two of these monitors, after comparing many monitors. I am happy with my purchase. I have hooked these up via DVI to my computer with them on Dual LCD Monitor Stand desk clamp holds up to 24" lcd monitors Fits perfectly by the way. No flickering, started up great. No dead pixels. I use two HP 2311x 23-Inch LED Monitor - Black at work, and they have pretty bad color inversion at even slight angles (15-20% shift will turn whites a bit yellow), a bit annoying. Not on these new monitors.
Price: The price is very good for an IPS monitor. Now is this professional grade? No. But a small % increase in color gamut with a huge % increase in price is not justifiable to me.
Anti-Glare coating: I did look for this because I have read about a very thick anti-glare coating. To me, the closer you are, ther more noticable it is. At first I was worried because I noticed a pearl essence, a rainbow like color. This was 2 inches from the screen. Once I actually sat back, I don't notice it. I also like the anti-glare coating. No distracting reflections from my window or lights.
Color: The color is great. Out of the box, it does need some calibration, but please, just a little bit, once. It has excellent grey and black levels (as in being able to see subtle differences in shades of grey and black.)
Viewing angle: Great. No color inversion (as expected).
Stand: Wobbly. This is to be expected. No worse than any other stand for any other monitor under $350. Removes nicely once mounted.
Light bleed: I think there is some when there is a solid black background.
