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