Asus VH242H or VE248H?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Which one should I buy?

Prices are nearly the same, but the VE248H has a GTG response time of 2ms, while the VG242H only has 5ms. The VE248H is reported to have ghosting though, although people fix that with turning OD off/reducing trace free.

Opinions?

Also one is an LED monitor and one is LCD

I actually had the VE248H and I didn't have any issues with it at all.

Both are poor choices IMO. The poor color accuracy of nearly all Asus monitors really make them disappointing.

The Samsung S24B300H is the much better choice. Superior color accuracy and picture quality. More durable and reliable.

Have you got any reviews on those? I've checked both the ASUS ones, owned one myself and all the reviews state that they have good colour with the downside being not too bright.

However I had the LED one which has great colour and great brightness.

I have had the VE246H for about 2yrs now and I have to say it's one the best monitors I have used and never had issues with it, but in saying that I haven't seen the VE248H or the VH242H but if it was me making the decision I would go for the VH242H based on being LED backlit so colours and etc should look brighter and nicer thumb.gif

Is that Samsung monitor equal to the LS23B300BS (S23B300B) ? That one is currently on sale here for 179,- with a cashback of 115 (coupon).

Also, the reason I wanted to buy the 2ms model, was because I currently own a 8ms Dell IPS and the pixel response is (way) too slow for me. It hurts my eyes.

Yes it is identical. Get it.

The response time is the manufacturer's quoted response time. Take response times with a grain of salt. An 8ms monitor may have much better responsiveness than a 2ms monitor.

Your 8ms Dell IPS is just a coincidence.

I talk from experience. Yes the Asus monitors are decent, however if you want the best quality monitor for your buck, get the Samsung.

Asus usually have poor color quality even with calibration. A CNET review even said the weakest point of Asus monitors is the color quality, especially because Asus screens are often tinted with greens or pinks.

While the QC of Asus is better than Benq, Samsung is still the boss when it comes to QC.

Get the Samsung.
