WTB: Asus monitor


#1

Anyone have one around the size of 19-23" with 2ms or so. 1080p would be great. Let me know what you got and how much shipped. Thanks


#2

bump, no one has one?


#3

Bro try amazon they have good deals. Probably get them for about 200.00.


#4

just didn’t want to risk a dead pixel is all. I’ll check their return policy though and see if I can’t get one if nobody has one.


#5

…? I got two of them from them. You have problems with the monitor they send you one and pay for the you returning. Too easy.


#6

well, didn’t know if it were like newegg where you have to have at least 8 dead pixels or something to return it. Thanks for the info.


#7

Oh no prob man. Amazon has superb CS best online shopping exp.


#8

I’m interested in buying an Asus VH236H as well. Just curious, what is a dead pixel?


#9

You’re screen is made up of a bunch of pixels and one would be dead so it’ll always be one color while the rest change with what’s showing. So you could have a tiny pixel square that’s one color and is easy to spot.

There’s actually two scenarios, one is a dead pixel which is black and can’t be fixed and the other is a stuck pixel that is another color than what it’s supposed to be. Either way, they’re all annoying and I don’t want either of them. At least that’s most of what I think is right.

Funny you mentioned that model cause it’s the one I’m looking at buying now. I wanted that ring stand touch sensitive buttons one but found out it’s a glossy screen and the VH236H has a matte screen which I prefer. It’s sold from buy.com and from what I’ve read, if you get a dead pixel it’s better not to mention that it’s the sole reason you want to return.

I see. Thx for the info. I want the Asus VH236H because that’s the official monitor used at EVO.

I’m trying to get a new one for under $190.


#11

Just went ahead and ordered mine from buy.com for $210. Not too big a price IMO and I hope I like it.


#12

went to buy.com site and price is $188.99, price after rebate $168.99, for VH236H. link


#13

oh yea, heh, I actually got the VH236HL-P model. It has height, tilt, and swivel adjustment which I really like on a monitor. Other than that I think they’re virtually the same.

EDIT: checked newegg and it has a 10 better viewing angle and a 5watt difference in power consumption. Probably doesn’t warrant the price though and like I said it’s mostly cause of the height and swivel adjustment for me.


#14

I was about to “Place Order”, but in the corner of the page in small letters they charged me $18.43 for tax making the total $207.42. With the $20 rebate, it’s only $187.42. Basically the same price as retail of $188.99 from eBay:

I almost fell for it. Thx for the info though.

I wouldn’t get any other Asus monitors than VH236H.


#15

That’s odd on the taxes, I guess you’re in the same state cause I didn’t get charged any for my monitor and it was a flat $210. Going by the tracking # they sent me, I should have this tomorrow (unlikely since it’s free shipping and was supposed to take 5-9 days). I’ll try and post up my impressions after I get it but like I said it’s virtually the same model as the VH236H it even has a similar model number and I read a few newegg reviews which most are positive like the other model.


#16

I see. From what I know, they only tested lag input on the VH236H model. And EVO uses it.

I tried buying it from eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380215808794) and they’re also charging me Tax AND “Recycling Fee” of $16. Total is $223.42.

Talk about hidden charges…


#17

I just received it in today! Wicked fast free shipping!

I used it a bit on CODMW2 and couldn’t notice any lag, I probably need a fighter or something more to that note though to fully test it.

One thing I did notice is that under the screen resolution settings the monitor is detected as “VH236H” so I’m sure they’re the same. I also checked for dead/stuck pixels and it’s picture perfect. Now I just have to get used to the quality since I’ve been using CRT for a while now, this thing is giving me a headache. :lol:


#18

Same here… It sux how I use a 20" CRT when theres a 46" Samsung HDTV right next to it.

Good stuff on getting a lagless monitor. I’ll get me one soon.
