5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Display, October 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS VS239H-P 23-Inch Full-HD LED IPS Monitor (Personal Computers)
I am an avid photographer and have been doing all of my editing on a 4:3, 19" monitor. I have wanted an IPS display for a long time, but the cost had been prohibitive and they were a compromise when it came to video and gaming. When the prices and response times began to drop dramatically, I felt it was time to take the plunge. There are several very good displays in the under $300 range and the decision wasn't an easy one. The Asus 239 showed a lot of promise both in user and professional reviews. The one consistent knock was the stand and that was easily rectified with a fully adjustable Gateway garage sale find ($5.00).
Brightness was the only substantial adjustment made out of the box, with the balance of factory settings to be very good. I found "0" bad pixels and the contrast and sharpness are exceptional. The first time I opened Lightroom, my jaw dropped. My photos have never looked better. This display has allowed me to see things in my photos I had missed with my previous monitor. I have found myself going back through my favorite photos and re-adjusting them now that I can appreciate their full color potential.
I have also watched several movies and videos as well as play a couple of my favorite games and have noticed little to no streaking or ghosting. Given what I paid for this display, it has become one of the best purchases I've made.

Have you printed from this monitor? If so, how was the color management and reproduction from screen to printed photo?
