This review is from: Asus VS248H-P 24-Inch Full-HD LED-lit LCD Monitor (Personal Computers)
This is a very nice monitor. It was a little too bright and turning that down helped. Also I noticed a little too much text ghosting when dragging my browser around the screen. There is an adjustment in your monitor settings. Go to Image, then adjust Trace Free. I set mine to 80 and its great.
This is a second monitor and seemed way too blue as compared to my old monitor. There are many places you can get reference jpg images that are true to color and gray scale. Do a search for a page named, Monitor Test Images, and any on that page are good, my favorites are from Inkjet Art. Also dpreview.com has a nice image, R3000_TestPrint.
As it turns out my old monitor was too red and this new monitor's color is very nice. Eyeballing adjustments are ok but using calibration equipment is better. Especially if you print much and find you prints don't match what you see on your monitor.
Its a very nice monitor that's priced right. Very good contrast, brightness, and color. Skyrim looks and plays great (lets face it, that's the most important part... hehe).
02/27/2013 I haven't had any problems with this monitor. I upgraded to Windows 8 from Vista so I don't know if this is in Win 7 or not, but... In Windows 8 search "calibrate display color" and in "settings" you can tweak your monitor. Then click "How do I calibrate my display" for instructions. My monitor looks better than ever.

Title of item appears to be incorrect. States "Blank" - suspect it should be "Black"

Trace Free! Hooray! It's been bugging me, the text ghosting. I set mine down to 60. Thanks a lot for the info, it really makes me feel a lot better about this monitor.

I adjust the Trace free setting to 80/60 but the fonts still are not crisp for me. Any advice?

My text is the most crisp at the highest setting 1920x1080. In Win 8 (and I think older versions) is two settings to adjust the font. In Win 8 search "adjust font" (without quotes) and click settings. Also make sure you have the latest video drivers.
If your text was good on your old monitor but not the new one I'm not sure why that would be if above doesn't help.
I hope that helps.
