VH238H vs ML239H?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Alright I'm debating on getting either of these monitors.

ML239H 23" IPS LED - $186.99:


VH238H 23" TN LED - $169.99:


The first one is IPS and costs a bit more, but the second has some more connectivity (DVI) and built-in speakers. Is the IPS worth it? Are the colors alot better than other panel types? Or should I get the TN? I'm planning on using this for gaming/movies/web-browsing.

usually i raccomand IPS than TN but in this situation ML239H is ridicolous, low srgb covered and 200:1 contrast ratio.
if u want an alternative there is LG E2370V or U2311H

My friend owns an ML239H and an U2311H, they're pretty much almost identical, I think they use the same panel. I don't know where you got those specs from as it has a ~1000:1 contrast ratio.

I'd get the U2311H but it doesn't have HDMI which is a deal breaker for me, and the E2370V is priced a bit high for a 23".

ml239h is not like u2311h, if u dont see the difference is a thing but dell u2311h have an extreme contrast ratio while asus ml239h have only 200 / 300 :1 and is little slower and this thing is confirmed by the very low price.
dell havent the hdmi, but asus have only hdmi, is led but have evident backlight bleeding than dell and the osd is very limited.

Marketed specs are mostly lies aside from resolutions and refresh rates. Even static contrast ratios are mostly lies. The numbers senna89 gets are from actual testing by numerous high quality reviewers. You should listen to what he (or she) has to say.

Why is the lack of HDMI a deal braker? I assume you can get a cheap DVI to HDMI adapter somewhere.

I plan on using this on my PS3 and PC, and I'm not sure if a HDMI/DVI adapter can carry sound. I'd like to get a IPS for the supposedly better colors and viewing angles, but don't want to spend more than 250$.

if u want absolutly the ml239h u can buy it without any problems, the money is your and i dont want stop u. We can help u to change some options, not over.
if u had seen the 239h and like it buy it, asus have only 1 hdmi and VGA, if u link the PS3 to hdmi, u must use VGA for PC ( low sharpness ).

DVI / HDMI adapter cannot carry sound


Not that you really want to use monitor speakers anyway. They sound like absolute crap most of the time.

I own a pair of VH238Hs.
They can be had for $81 open box on Newegg.
I bought two OB, and they both can LNIB.
Well worth it for the price.

ASUS VH series is awesome. I personally have 3, and my brother has 1 monitor from that series, and all of them are awesome. I definitely recommend it.
