4 Reasons For

Asus PC Displays Have Good Reviews

Medium monitors built by Asus have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all LCD screens (not just medium monitors) and found that Asus also has good ratings across its entire range.

1080p Video Mode

This PC display has a 1080p video mode, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This LCD screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many LCD screens of this type and age.

Chart Edit


Across all the medium monitors that have been around for more than two years the weights range from 3g to 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. With a weight of only 3.1 kilograms, the Asus VS229 is quite light compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the VS229.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the VS229 do not have a built-in speaker. The Asus VS229 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The Asus VS229 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the VS229 are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Asus VS229 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VS229 also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Asus VS229 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been around for a similar time to the VS229 also do not have an integrated card reader.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to consider including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on flatpanel monitors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of only 54.6 centimeters, the Asus VS229 has one of the smaller screen sizes amongst PC displays of this age. The average display diagonal of medium monitors that are a similar age to the VS229 is 65cm, and the screen sizes range from 28cm to 770cm.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the Asus VS229

Average Running Costs

The VS229 is typical compared to the other 998 flatpanel monitors of this type and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the VS229 will cost £58 over 5 years to run.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Asus released the VS229.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on comparable spec PC monitors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The Asus VS229 has an LCD display type which is better than most PC monitors of this type and age. Most LCD screens of this age and type have an LED display type.

Other LCD screens that have an LCD Display currently available that you might want to consider include the Planar PLL2210W[plb_1809826_price], or the Eizo ColorEdge CX270[plb_1724638_price] which has better reviews.

LCD screens with a better display type that might be worth considering include the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price] (LED) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Width

With a width of 514.1 millimeters, the Asus VS229 has a relatively average width compared to most of the other PC displays of a similar spec and age to the VS229.

We compared this PC screen to all the other 514.1mm wide PC displays and we think the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
