8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Asus has good average ratings for its small monitors as well as across its entire PC screen range.

Price Has Recently Dropped by £12.26

In the last couple of weeks the price of the VB198TL has dropped by £12.26.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors of this type and age.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including cheaper flatpanel monitors such as the AOC I960[plb_2746828_price], or the HP ProDisplay P202va[plb_2898169_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Asus VB198TL has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec PC monitors that came out more than a year ago do not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at including the Acer B206[plb_3581062_price], or the Samsung S19E200BR[plb_3897846_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Viewsonic VG939[plb_2780291_price] is also worth considering.

1280 X 1024 (SXGA) Graphics Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on PC monitors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Has Three Cables Included

The Asus VB198TL has a greater number of cables included than most flatpanel monitors that came out more than a year ago. This PC screen has a VGA cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on similar spec LCD screens that were released around the same time as the VB198TL.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other PC monitors that have been available for more than a year, the VB198TL does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Expensive

4 Other reasons to consider the Asus VB198TL

This LCD screen was released over a year ago.

1280 X 1024 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC screen has a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels, which is typical of many comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Average Width

With a width of 413 millimeters, the VB198TL has a relatively average width compared to most of the other PC monitors of this spec and age.

There are a number of alternative 413mm wide PC displays currently available which you might want to consider including the Asus VB198T[plb_3318791_price] which has better reviews.

Alternative PC monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Lenovo LT1913p[plb_2938333_price] (411mm and higher rated).

Excellent monitor, the display is crisp and clear, colours are great. The only negative is that the volume is a bit low, but that is no major problem.
