    ---Full 1080 HD. Do not be fooled by these others monitors claiming 'high-def'

    ---Weighs 7 pounds, not 27, making it adjustable with the push of a finger

    ---The response time is 2ms...not 5ms(gamers will understand the magnificence of this wonderful feature)

    ---About as thick as my thumbnail

    ---$200 monitor is well worth $300-350 when compared to all the old prehistoric garbage still being pushed out there for more money that it cost to buy this one.

    ---10 million to 1 dynamic ratio. People say, "Dynamic ratio is just a sales crutch," but I DARE you to find another monitor out there even remotely close. You wont because no one else has such technology out yet besides what is inside this monitor. If you do find something close, I bet it is at the very least 100-200 bucks more and only around 1 million to 1. 10 million to 1, enough said here.

    ---Perfect for watching Hulu and blu-ray with the ol' lady (you can watch from anywhere in the room)

    ---The touch-screen buttons work phenomenally and even better than the ones on my 3 grand 52" inch Samsung LCD television in my living room. People complaining about this feature probably still use rotary dialer phones.

    ---Doesn't look like a computer monitor, so when time to upgrade in 5 years, it will be great for the kitchen and no one will ever think "Well, that is ghetto, this guy just put his old computer monitor in his kitchen."

    ---The games I play, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Team Fortress 2, have never looked better. I actually did not know they could look this good, even when I had full settings on before. My 19" Dell monitor had 8ms and now this Asus FLIES at 2ms...are you kidding me?! TWO MS....

    I spent nearly a month researching different brands and models of monitors, but ultimately made the decision to go with the ASUS ms238h. I am currently the owner of a HP w2408h that I use for business, so my review is loosely based on a comparison between the ms238h and the w2408h. When new, the HP was nearly $500 vs the more affordable price of $200 for the ASUS.

    The ms238h is a super thin and lightweight monitor that provides a very crisp and brilliant display. Out of the box, the monitor is bright enough to knock your socks off! (On my HP, I have the brightness turned down to 0.) Once I learned how to navigate through the menu, I was able to adjust the brightness quite easily. This display also provides true HD (1920x1080). Videos/movies play well thanks to the fast response time. This monitor is great for viewing photos as well. Unlike the HP, the screen is not glossy, so reflections are minimized.

    The ring stand is a bit odd at first, but after a brief assembly, it sturdily supports the monitor. Tilting is very easy and I did not notice any slipping or shaking while the monitor was on my desk. Compared to my HP, the ms238h didn't shake or move at all! The HP always shakes a little.

    The touch sensitive buttons on the front of the display could perform a little better, but they do work and you are able to navigate through the menu to adjust brightness, etc.

    There are no speakers for this monitor, but there is a HD audio output on the back of the monitor that you can use to hook-up external speakers.

    I've been a long long time suporter of ASUS products. And this is my first time buying a LCD from them.
    Overall there is 0 problems with this monitor.

    The stand as many complain about is a tad bit of a problem, but its not that hard to sight just
    slightly at or above eyelevel with the monitor.Brightness is actually a problem. At 10million:1 this monitor
    tends to be a fair bit to bright. (the preset settings) but with a few touches of your finger can quickly be fixed.

    Color is very on par, and for a non $400 TN LCD this has the best color that I've seen in a TN monitor.
    Reaction time is perfect, no ghosting in games, no text problems. The problem with HDMI + ATI cards resulting in a
    loss of 1 inch boarder was fixed with the newer Video driver. And quite frankly this is the best monitor I've used.

    Look and feel is great, yes its a fingerprint magnet. But on any desk it is quite a pretty sight. Very light and super
    thin compared to many LCDs in the market.

    TECH wise I'd rate this a 4.5/5 my only issue is it is still a TN monitor, (for those that don't understand TN is the
    lowest quality form of LCD which is designed to be fast response bright, but not able to desplay perfect color, though
    this monitor compared to non TN monitors)

    Hardware wise 4/5 The ring stand doesn't go past 90* and if you set it to 90* it becomes rather unstable, wanting to fall
    forward on its face, also the lack of mounting screws on the back would be a lovely addition. But the sleek design, and
    personally the touch buttons work wonderfully well. Flaws yes, but for the price this is like a shining candle in the dark.

    Overall 5/5 There are flaws, but when you sit back and think about it.
