Design and Performance
First thing you will notice about this monitor are the sizable bezels. VS228H-P is also pretty thick, although it sports a curved back side. Asus didn't invest much of their time and money in the aesthetics of this model. However, it is good where it counts the most. Main controls are located on the right hand side of the bottom bezel, and are standard. Asus VS228H-P comes with one DVI-D, one HDMI, and one VGA port. This monitor is VESA ready, and can be easily mounted on a wall.
The panel is a standard LED unit that features a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution with a 60Hz refresh rate. The colors are great for the price, and combined with a decent refresh rate, it is capable of delivering a great gaming experience. One issue that seems to be occurring with this monitor is inconsistent quality. It appears that more than one factory makes these, and their quality is noticeably different.
