The better monitor?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I just purchased an Asus ML239H off NewEgg. However, I was a bit stupid upon purchasing and didn't realize it doesn't have speakers. The speakers honestly aren't very necessary for me, but I'd like to have them. So I contacted NewEgg and asked them if I'd be able to return it and get a new monitor with a speaker and they issued me the RMA. So now I'm trying to figure out which monitor I should get that has the same or better screen quality, but with speakers.


I've run into these models:

I'm mainly going to use the monitor for computer use and gaming. Are any of these better or at least up to par with the monitor I currently have? Is there any other model (Asus, preferably) that you'd suggest. My budget is $250 and under.

Built in monitor speakers are generally pretty terrible, and underpowered. That shouldn't really have any weight in your screen decision.

Hmm in that price range, check out Samsung's screens also, if you need external sound, you can pick up a cheap 2.1 speaker setup also.

I'd go with the 24" of those choices you posted though, otherwise a Samsung 23/24" if they have something in that price range.

How's the screen quality on the VE248Q, though? Is it better than the monitor I have?

Honestly, speakers on a monitor shouldn't even be considered as all it does is add manufacturing price when the money can be gone to invest in better picture quality. Not sure about the Asus monitors, but judging from the specs, they have pretty good features for that price. If you ask me, I would go with the Samsung B2430H. Have seen it before, it is awesome. Do not be daunted by the 5ms speed though, it is nearly unnoticeable at all, and I am gaming on an IPS 236v 8ms after downgrading from a performance grade PX2370.

Some people can notice a huge difference between 5ms and 2ms. I, personally, can't stand 5ms as it's very noticeably more blurry.

A couple of members have said this monitor is good and I should be getting mine in today. Although it doesn't have built in speakers. But as others said LCD monitor speakers are usually atrocious anyway.

I have the 27" version VE278Q. I have not noticed any ghosting. Very nice looking monitor once calibrated.

Honestly, at this point, the only thing I want to know is if the VE248Q has better image quality than the ML239H.

VE24x series have evident ghosting issue in 2D.


dont buy ML239H, is a cheaper monitor, IPS but extremelly cheaper, have a very low contrast ratio ( 200-300:1 ) against the averange 800:1 of all monitors.
