Customer Review

on July 26, 2011
As many have already covered, this is a great monitor for its price range.

Something to be aware of is that it does not have great vertical viewing angle, despite its advertised specifications.
Using the monitor calibration site, lagom.nl, here's their test for viewing angle:

EDIT: Amazon isn't allowing url's in my review. So here's an attempt to post the missing link, just replace " dot " with "."
The viewing angle calibration page is at:
www dot lagom.nl/lcd-test/viewing_angle.php

When using the "Lagom test" above for the ASUS VE228H, the results are exactly like the screenshot they provide as the bad example. although to be fair, the site also mentions that such a result is typical. This result affects the other tests on that site as well, in particular the gamma calibration which has different results depending on the angle of the screen or the height of your head.

What this means is that brightness levels have a noticeable change as you bob your head up and down in front of the ASUS monitor, even with a slight motion. I found this very distracting/worrisome while creating art.
It is, however, miles better than my laptop's built in screen, and performs well in other tests on that site such as the contrast test.
