Which $150-200 Asus Monitor should I get?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was originally planning to pick up a $400 monitor, but I decided against it. Now, I'm looking to get something in the $150-300 range. Asus seems to be the right choice, but I'm confused as to which model is best.

23-24 inch

I am primarily looking to get it for gaming. Can someone please recommend me which of the many models is best?

Thanks in advance!

Epic fail, read monitor as motherboard. Deleted this.

Asus VW246H:

The color accuracy on the monitor out-of-the-box isn't great, but I calibrated mine, and it looks fantastic.

We have 2 of these in the house and they are fantastic for the price.

I'm about to buy one of the two listed...

VH242H
VW246H

I really wish I knew the difference between the two, to know if the extra $20 is worth it. Anyone have an idea, or am I emailing Asus? =)

The VW246H has a higher quality panel. Based on the specs from ASUS, it's actually 24", as opposed to 23.6" for the VH, and the VW has a 2ms response time, as opposed to the 5ms for the VH.

In my opinion, the VW is more than worth the extra money.
