8 Reasons For
The VS229HA is a popular choice of flatpanel monitor.
Running Costs Are Low
The VS229HA is in the cheapest 19% of all 371 latest similar spec LCD screens that we have looked at for 5 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the VS229HA is only £34.
Asus Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays
We checked 12,492 owner and expert reviews for Asus flatpanel monitors and found that on average Asus has good ratings. We also found that Asus has good ratings specifically for its medium monitors.
Just Released Three Months Ago
As one of the newer PC screens, this PC screen is likely to use better technology.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Asus VS229HA has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other recently released medium monitors.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think a cheaper PC display such as the Hannspree HL225PPB (£75.00) or you might consider a higher scoring PC display such as the Asus VP228TE (£79.99) are also worth considering.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the AOC E2275PWJ (£84.99) is also worth considering.
Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the VS229HA is more than most medium monitors that have been available for the last year. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this LCD screen. The cables included AC|Audio (3.5mm)|HDMI|VGA are also found on this Asus PC screen.
+3 More reasons for
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many PC monitors that have been around for around the same time as it.
The Asus VS229HA is quite narrow (only 513 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for the last year. Across all the medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VS229HA the widths range from 370mm to 960mm.
Alternative 513mm wide PC screens currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Asus VP228TE (£79.99).
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might want to consider the Viewsonic VA2261 (£86.35) (513.2mm) which is also cheaper.
8 Reasons Against
Only 3000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The Asus VS229HA has a maximum contrast ratio of 3000:1. That's 88% less contrast ratio than the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 25000:1. Across all recently released LCD screens the contrast ratio ranges from Mega Contrast to 100000000:1.
PC monitors with a higher contrast ratio that might also be worth considering include the P1914S (£65.59) (2000000:1 and higher rated), or the P2014H (£73.79) (2000000:1 and higher rated) both from DELL or the V7 L185V-2E (£65.51) (1000000:1 and cheaper).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most comparable spec PC monitors that were released in the last year do not have a built-in camera. The Asus VS229HA is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the HP EliteDisplay E240c (£188.99) is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Asus VS229HA does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other PC monitors that were launched in the last year also do not have an integrated card reader.
Not 3D Compatible
The VS229HA is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that were launched in the last year are also not 3D compatible.
+5 More reasons against
Only LCD Display Type
The VS229HA has a better display type than most medium monitors that are a comparable age to it. This PC screen has an LCD display type, whereas most medium monitors that were released around the same time as it have an LED display type.
An LCD display type is actually the worst display type across all medium monitors that have been available for the last year.
Across comparable types of flatpanel monitor the best display type is LED.
If you want an LCD screen with a better display type then you might also want to look at the Benq GL2450E (£86.98) (LED) which also has a higher rating.
Quite Low RMS Rated Audio Power
The lowest RMS rated audio power of comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the VS229HA is 1W, the highest is 32W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5W. With an RMS rated audio power of only 1.5 Watts, the VS229HA has a very low RMS rated audio power compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the VS229HA.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This LCD screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on recently released similar spec PC monitors.
There are a number of alternative PC monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available which you might also want to look at including the Benq GL2450E (£86.98) which has a better Rating.
If the display resolution of this PC screen is too few for you then you might also want to consider the HP EliteDisplay E242 (£133.75) (1920 x 1200).
Very Small Display Diagonal
The average display diagonal of comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to the VS229HA is 68cm, and the screen sizes range from 52cm to 690cm. At only 54.6 centimeters, the VS229HA has a quite small display diagonal compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the VS229HA.
