Reasonably Priced

Two customers mentioned in their reviews that it was good value for money. Bryan mentioned “Great price for the size” in his review of this PC monitor.

Released Over a Year Ago

It was June 2015 when Asus released the VB198T.


Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Asus VB198T has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other small monitors that were launched more than a year ago do not have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Hanns.G Hx194dpb (£94.98), or the AOC m2060pwq (£89.99) both of which are cheaper.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Samsung S19E450MW (£108.99) is also worth considering.
