Good Product Quality

One Asus VB198T owner who reviewed it said that it was good quality.

Reasonably Priced

One Asus VB198T reviewer who purchased it concluded that it was good value for money. David Checketts said three years ago “Value for money monitor of superb quality, ideal stepping stone for those not ready for full widescreen” in his review.

Good Size

One Asus VB198T owner who reviewed it concluded that it was compact. Three years ago David Checketts wrote in his Asus VB198T review “Not wanting a large unit which would be unsuitable in a compact environment”.

LED Display

This PC screen has an LED display, which is typical of many small monitors that have been around for more than a year.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays that have an LED Display and we think cheaper PC displays such as the Philips 203V5[plb_2081905_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Asus VB198T has a built-in speaker(s), which is unusual. Most of the other small monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the VB198T do not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider including the HKC 1976A[plb_3276543_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Asus VB198TL[plb_3777553_price], or the Hannspree HE196APB[plb_2936443_price].

The product is used for personal computing. Love the size and that it is not a wide screen. Speakers are okay for my use. Would definitely buy again...
