The present Asus VS238H-P review is here to help you learn about this Full HD monitor with a matte screen. It has a 1920 x 1080 resolution that provides a clear picture, being able to show 16.7 million colors. The 250 cd/m2 pick brightness gives out a truly vivid image. The TN panel ensures wide viewing angles (170° horizontal and 160° vertical).
The Asus VS238H-P has a screen size of 23 inches and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The full dimensions of the monitor are 21.7 x 7.9 x 15.8 inches while its weight is 8.4 pounds.
One of the most unique Asus VS238H-P specs is the exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence technology which improves brightness, contrast, and sharpness of the image.
There are six video modes: Scenery (for watching/editing photos), Theater (for watching movies/TV-shows), Game (for game playing), Night View (for watching dark scenes in games/movies), sRGB (for viewing graphics and images), and Standard (works best for document editing). The settings menu also enables you to choose from 3 different skin tone modes and 4 color temperature settings.
In terms of other functions, it’s also worth noting that this monitor is HDCP supported which means that you can protect your content from illegal copying.
Thanks to super-quick 2ms response time, this monitor will work well for gaming, providing you with a great, smooth picture, free from tearing and ghosting. Such quick response time is especially important for shooters and online gaming. The 60Hz refresh rate is good, but it’s not recommended for demanding games if you don’t want to face the FPS issues.
In addition, this model is eco-friendly as it’s mercury-free.
The monitor’s body is all-black. Thanks to its slim design, it looks stylish on your desk and is also suitable for wall mount (100 x 100 VESA mount). The back part of the monitor has a fingerprint-proof surface, preventing dust build-ups.
The bezels around the screen are quite thick. The bottom bezel contains 6 buttons that provide the quickest and the most convenient way to open the monitor’s settings. The first button is multifunctional as it allows adjusting the image to its optimized position (by long press), switching between video modes, and exiting the menu. The other buttons serve to adjust the contrast, open the menu, adjust the brightness, select the input, and turn the monitor on/off. The last button also has an LED indicator that changes colors in order to inform about the power status (blue means on, amber means standby mode).
In comparison with other similar monitors, the VS238H-P offers a wider choice of connectivity options. On its rear part, you will find three connectors: HDMI, DVI-D, and VGA. There is also a Kensington security slot that can be used when you want to protect the monitor from possible theft.
The monitor stands on a glossy round stand with a vortex pattern. The stand is wide and provides great protection from wobbles. Besides, it’s very easy to detach. It also allows tilting the monitor from -5° to 20°.
The VS238H-P is a solid model for those who actively use the monitor for both business and entertainment purposes, like editing photos/documents, playing games, etc. It has many different settings to optimize the image for your needs while the Splendid Video Intelligence technology works great in creating a bright and natural picture. The 2ms response time in combination with a 60Hz refresh rate are more than enough for gaming.
