ASUS VH236 LCD Monitor

The audio quality for the dual two Watt speaker system was nice but nothing extraordinary. If you are watching movies, constantly listening to music, or playing games, we would recommend an external speaker system.

Conclusion:

While this was our first time testing out an ASUS LCD monitor, we were left being pleased with the product. The build quality of the monitor itself was great and comparable to that of the other ASUS products we previously have reviewed at Phoronix. Additionally, this monitor is backed by a three-year warranty and should the customer run into any problems, ASUS even provides a free pick-up service when returning the LCD monitor. Beyond that, the specifications for the ASUS VH236H are fairly typical but competitive with the other monitors in its class. The 23-inch panel has a 300 cd/m2 brightness, 2ms GTG response time, and 160 / 160 degree viewing angle. The HDMI input on this monitor is also nice, but that is now common among 23" and 24" displays. It is nice that there is an S/PDIF audio input accompanying the standard audio jack, though the dual two Watt speakers are not the best if you will be relying upon them quite a bit. Another unfortunate area about this monitor is the lack of swivel, tilt (beyond 25 degrees), and height adjustment support, but those features can be found in the VH236HL-P.

At the end of the day, the ASUS VH236H LCD monitor is a nice product, but is not anything unique or extraordinary. This 23-inch LCD sells for just under $200 USD, which is competitively priced, and should suit most consumers well.
