5 Reasons For
Low Running Costs
The VS228D has an average 5 year running cost of only £34 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is in the cheapest 15% of all 795 LCD screens of this age and type.
Asus Has Good Reviews for Its LCD Screens
We checked 12,492 user and expert reviews for Asus PC displays and found that on average Asus has good ratings. We also found that Asus has good ratings specifically within its medium monitors range.
LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this LCD screen and we think the Benq EW2440 (£124.98) which has a better Rating; or the Benq GW2320 (£96.37) which is cheaper are also worth considering.
1080p Video Mode
This LCD screen has a 1080p video mode, which is typical of many medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many PC monitors of this age and type.
7 Reasons Against
Only 1000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the Asus VS228D is 1000:1. That's 100% less contrast ratio than a 20000000:1 LCD screen, which is the most frequently found contrast ratio. Across all PC monitors of this spec and age the best contrast ratio is 100000000:1 and the worst is Mega Contrast.
We compared all the other PC displays that have a 1000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the LG 24M45 (£115.81), and the Samsung S23B350 is also worth considering.
If you would prefer an LCD screen with a higher contrast ratio then you might want to consider the HP ZR22w (£140.26) (3000:1) which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The Asus VS228D does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the VS228D which have a built-in speaker.
It is worth considering other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the iiyama B2283HS (£115.32), the HP ZR22w (£140.26), or the HKC 2412A (£104.90) which is also higher rated.
Not 3D Compatible
The Asus VS228D is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens that came out around the same time as the VS228D are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the HP LP2065 (£110.40) or the Lenovo E2323 (£115.00).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the VS228D do not have a built-in camera. The Asus VS228D is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the HP Compaq LA2206 (£83.99) is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for more than two years.
There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available which you might also want to consider including a cheaper LCD screen such as the AOC E2370 (£97.75) or you might consider a higher scoring LCD screen such as the Benq GW2255 (£91.02), or the AOC I2369 (£112.00).
If the display resolution of this PC screen is not many enough for you then you might want to look at the Samsung NS240 (1920 x 1200).
