Asus ML239H vs Dell U2311H

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I've been looking into buying a new 23" IPS monitor to replace my current ASUS VH242H TN panel. After reading a bunch of posts and reviews online it seems the Dell U2311H is a popular choice, but it also has a few downsides with it also. It has a 6-bit e-IPS panel and not true 8bit, which is the main reason for the cheap price, and also there is only a DVI/Display Port (not HDMI )for Digital sources.

The Asus ML239H is fairly new and looks to have better specs overall than the Dell, althrough I can't find any reviews or much information on it at all. If anyone has bought this monitor I would love to know how it compares to the Dell in terms of colour quality/input lag/ response time etc.

I am edging more towards the ASUS right now because of the better specs, supposedly less aggressive AG coating unlike the Dell and I actually like the look of it. But with hardly any information on it I'd like to hear what you guys think before I pull the trigger on one of these monitors.

guess it depends on what monitor you were using before. If you are coming from a CRT it is a major improvement. I have some TN panels that it's definitely more colorful in, but I haven't done a long-term study on my ability to work at it for 5 or 6 hours a day without straining my eyes. As recommended with any extended computer use, I will take breaks from looking at the screen for a long duration and remember to blink. The only monitor I've been able to use for a full work day (8 hours) were Dell Ultrasharps (one older model I use at work is the 1704fpt, which apparently is a TN panel, but very good with clear picture without much irritating radiance and it's very soft on the eyes. It's my interest in configuring a panel so I can use it for an extended period, but this panel is pretty close to addressing most of my needs. I might post in several months to review my reccomendation for the average day's limit in time for using this (as too many hours with any monitor can't be good.)


go with the asus!!

i hope i helped you out!! (:

The Asus uses the same panel as the Dell; therefore, it's also a 6-bit panel with dithering. The general performance of both is gonna be quite close. Don't get too focused on that, though, the U2311H is better than even the U2410 in some areas like contrast ratio. I would advise you get the U2311H. It has better build quality, more features, looks nicer (IMO), and is much more reputable. The Asus is nice, but if you can get the Dell for a similar price it's better.

The DELL is older monitor !
Dell not use the same panel of Asus, Dell use F2 revision of LG panel, Asus use the F3 revision.

Both are 6bit + dithering but Dell is OLD ! Not LED and big dimension and ugly design.

Dell is passed.

LED is somewhat fail atm for picture quality. Also don't you dare call my monitor ugly

It looks pro and elegant not some cheap plastic.

Have you considered the HP ZR24w? It's a 1920x1200 24" 8-bit e-IPS with great reviews. The primary downside when compared to the U2311H are its black levels, but this can be at least partially remedied by the pointers given in the aformentioned review. Also, from what I've gathered its AG coating is minimal. Response times/input lag on par with the Dell.

It's $400 on Amazon right now.

The panel LM240WU7 that HP use, is different that Dell used.
The LM240WU7 panel is product by LG but used by only HP and Fujitsu.

HP ZR24w is 16:10, problematic for game, films and another.
