Best 1080p monitor on Newegg - Page 3

The main differences:

VH242h:
  • Traditional CCFL (photo-realistic colors but quite dull looking compared to led, more detail in the blacks)
  • 16:9
  • has vesa mounting

VH238H:
  • LED (more vibrant colors but requires more calibration to fix reds and to try to remove blueish tone. Deeper blacks and brigher whites, but you lose some detail in the blacks)
  • 16:9 (edit: oops )
  • Does not have vesa mounting
  • "Green" technology, uses little power, slightly thinner and lighter, easier to recycle and better for the planet

Overall they're quite similar. I'd personally just go with VH242h, less setup time, has vesa mounting, more detail in the blacks (better for gaming), has a larger screen. If you don't need vesa mounting the VH238H is probably the better monitor overall, especially if you spend the time adjusting the colors.

VH238h is 16:9, dude.

And yes, all LED Monitors have a blue tint on dark scenes. Time to time, LED is also more vurnable to backlight bleeding.

If the image they used for that monitor isn't a wallpaper, it needs to be! I checked Google but found nothing. They never seem to be real wallpapers (or released and easy to find ones anyway).

From what I've seen, De-Zant is probably rather close to that, at least more so than most

I currently have 3 of these monitors, only 21.5"

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009291

I am very impressed with the quality of these. I really think that LED backlighting helps out with the picture quality of TN panels, because at a direct angle, these look almost equal in quality to my friends IPS. You only see a difference at extreme angles, which isnt that big of a deal for me.

My expertise mostly covers the higher end display section. That is to say, I most likely remember every detail of every IPS display being manufactured today. TN displays and out of date displays? Those are not in exactly my best field of expertise... at least at the moment. I can guide people in the right direction but there are just too many TN panels out there for me to remember each little detail of every single one of them. And thus making direct comparisons of two similar displays in the same series is a difficult task too.

Newegg had approximately 500 TN displays alone when I checked roughly a month ago. And neweggs selection doesn't cover even remotely all TN displays out there. To remember the specifics of each is, frankly, impossible.

I have, however, seen and read about a lot of them. I would personally consider asus monitors the best low end monitors out there at this point, as a rough generalization.

@lapengu: How impressive or "good" an image seems does not mean that it's the correct one. While a TN may very well look as "good" as an IPS, it doesn't mean that the TN is showing the correct image. (Assuming at least IPS is calibrated) That is... not a consideration unless you are dealing with photo/video editing however, or just value correct colors in everything like me.

Yeah. I own 2x VE247's and they both ghost text wise. I've had them for ~45 days and just got done begging Newegg into letting me return them for a Gift Card. Thank goodness.

I know you said that your only willing to pay $200 but Dell has the U2311H on sale from $320 and compared to tn panels and ips panel will blow anything away that you can buy for $200 for only $30 more.

Would love it, but just can't afford it.
