With Asus's recent Blitzkrieg of inexpensive Eee PC netbooks and nettops, it might be easy forget that Asus also manufactures a full bevy of components and peripherals from motherboards to graphics cards to networking products. Asus also makes LCD displays, ranging in size from 17-inches on up to 26-inches, which cover a wide swath of feature sets and needs from the budget user to the graphics professional.

One of Asus' recently released displays is the Asus VH242H 23.6-inch widescreen LCD Monitor. The "V" in the product name indicates that it is a "value" model--in other words, it is a budget display. But even with a budget price tag of $249 and using inexpensive thin-film-transistor twisted-nematic (TFT-TN) display technology, the VH242H offers features and performance that you would expect from more-expensive displays. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find many 24-inch or 23.6-inch LCD display at this price point.

Where the VH242H finds places to cut corners is with its lack of an integrated USB hub and a monitor stand that doesn't swivel or offer any height adjustments. But the monitor does include integrated, stereo speakers, as well as separate video inputs for DVI-D, VGA, and HDMI 1.1. Adding to its value, the HDMI input is HDCP compliant, so you can use the VH242H to display protected HD content. Come on by the site and check it out...

The prices have definitely come down on 19"+ monitors over the past couple years.  Years ago, going from my old 17" to a new 19"CRT was a cool  I currently have a Dell 2407WFP 24".    What sort of monitor do you use, bob?

I've noticed that the new 16:9 monitors are usually cheaper than standard 24" 1920x1200. And that's good for all of us! Smile
