Great monitor for gaming and movie watching!!!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Asus VS248H-P 24-Inch Full-HD LED Monitor (Personal Computers)
I bought this monitor about 2 months ago and I have to say that I'am quite pleased with it. The colors on it look great after calibration. The monitor has a fast response time and low input lag. The design is aesthetically pleasing, though it has a somewhat cheap feeling to it. The monitor has 1 VGA, 1 DVI, a headphone jack (Headphone jack only works with HDMI) and an HDMI input. Out of the box it includes all the cables necessary for connecting your equipment except an HDMI cable. I mainly use the monitor with my Xbox 360 via HDMI and it looks great. I originally thought that 24" was going to be too big, but it fits perfectly on my desk with just barely enough room to spare with the shelf above the monitor. The monitor also comes with a 3 year warranty from Asus so I have peace of mind about my purchase. I highly recommend the Asus VS248H-P and will definitely continue shopping with Amazon.
Since the monitor doesn't come with an HDMI cable here are some below.
AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable (6.5 Feet/2.0 Meters) - Supports Ethernet, 3D, and Audio Return [Newest Standard]
Mediabridge Ultra Series - High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet - (6 Feet) - Category 2 Certified - Supports 3D & Audio Return Channel [Latest HDMI Version Available]
I personally bought my HDMI cable from Monoprice. I don't recommend ever buying an HDMI cable from a retail store because they are overpriced and will not perform any better than a $10 HDMI cable bought online.
EDIT: I have had this monitor for just over a year now and it is still going strong. Very happy with my purchase and I don't think I could have bought a better monitor than this one for the price I paid back in October 2011.

"(Headphone jack only works with HDMI".
Very very likely I will get this (Vs248h-p) or the 248h (which has built in speakers and a different DCR). It's insanely challenging for me to get things that are important (like a monitor), but your rev was helpful. thanks!

I purchased this monitor back in December and have been trying to eyeball the calibration with test images. What did you use to calibrate it and if you dont mind, what are you current settings after calibration?

Hey, I was wondering, I thought this monitor has built in speakers? So I've connected my xbox 360 and no sound. And what's weird there is a option in the menu to control the volume.

Sorry I didn't respond any sooner. The Asus VS248H-P Monitor does not have any built-in speakers. I am not sure where you might have read that it did. It does however have an audio out/headphone jack, Note that the audio out/headphone jack only works when using HDMI. You could connect a set of speakers or a pair of headphones to it and get sound that way. I personally don't use it because I have a Turtle Beach X11 headset for my Xbox 360 so I don't really have any reason to use the audio out jack. I actually didn't know that there was a volume control option in the menu. Also quite a few people have been asking me about color calibration and I honestly haven't done any. I just switch between the different Splendid mode presets. I see no real reason to calibrate it if you primarily use it for console gaming. In addition to that I wear Gunnar Optiks Glasses so it changes the colors to a warmer hue which I like a lot.GUNNAR Computer Eyewear - Sheadog Onyx Frame
Hope this answered your question adequately. I ordered my monitor in Oct. 2011 and I am still very happy with it. The Asus VS248H-P is probably one of the best monitors you can get for under $200. In all honesty it is probably one of the best electronic purchases I have made in quite a while.

for some reason, monitor doesn't turn on automatically with HDMI connection after resuming windows from hibernation - it looks like a configuration but can't find that option on monitor - i verified that it's not a problem from laptop settings
not sure if i need special HDMI cable for that - does anyone know?? - thank you
