Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

G-SYNC works in a surprisingly simple way - it calculates how long the present frame takes to compute and then, crucially, varies the refresh rate of the monitor to match. It works between a minimum of 33.3ms (30fps) and the maximum supported refresh of the display. The key takeaway here is that the graphics card and monitor are both synced up to one another - the monitor doesn't have the limitations imposed by a rigid, fixed-rate scanning routine.

Now shipping with all but the cheapest complete PCs are LCD monitors. Advances in display manufacturing and associated cost reductions with economies of scale have brought LCD monitors into the mainstream, shipping with budget systems that start at just £400. LCD monitors come in all shapes and sizes, have differing resolutions and inputs. The purpose of this TekSpek is to provide a basic understanding of how LCDs work, delineate their desirable features, and to offer basic buying advice.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works? This TekSpek seeks to teach you how.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

21.5" Asus VX229H Monitor, AH-IPS Panel, 1920x1080, 5ms, 250cd/m² Brightness, D-Sub/HDMI, Black is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asus VX229H Monitor Bought to use as a second display on my setup. This is a great monitor with no problems. I use it with a StarTech DP to HDMI adapter as with the main monitor which is an Asus Vn247H - I have stuck with Asus for most of the PC parts as I think this is a great brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good monitor I am using this monitor on my new computer. I would recommend using hdmi for the best possible quality. I unfortiantly right now can only use vga. The quality is great and the colours are really vibrant.The settings and customisability of the monitor makes this perfect to anyone. The panel is IPS which is better than traditional lcd panels. Better viewing angles and improved colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from booyakasha A truly great screen, especially for the price. I purchased 2 of these screens and could not be happier. Loses 1 start on quality because only comes with VGA cable when it advertises 2x HDMI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pay a bit more for this exceptional quality screen I don't have much desk space so originally just bought this because of the shaved-off edges. Would especially recommend to people with minimal desk space like myself, because the 'O' ring base at the bottom comes in useful as very hand key/loose change storage! However, I've used it for 3 weeks now and I can say that this is the best screen I've bought. You can view it clearly from any angle and it has a bewildering array of options (including some pre-sets including Gaming, Media etc). Touch-sensitive buttons take a while to get used to but work very well. Exceptional build quality and very cool looking product. Loses just ONE point for only having a VGA cable included. HDMI cables are cheap so this point just baffles me. Comes with tonnes of other useful accessories, then an ancient VGA cable to go with it? Baffling. Get a HDMI cable pronto for this, otherwise you'll have a fair bit of setup time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I couldn't tell you anything technical about image quality and all the stuff tech people could tell you is important for a monitor to have image wise but I find the image quality to be great. This has got to be one of the nicest quality monitors I have bought for this price. The whole monitor has this pastic matt black finish to it and the metal ring base is also very nice unlike other monitors I have had in this price range with ugly plastic bases. The monitor has no height adjustment, it just tilts backwards and forwards. I use it for my PS4 and I just have nothing bad to say about it although it might be worth mentioning that despite it not having a bezel around it there is a thin black border going around the screen when you turn it on - the entire image does not cover the entire screen. The build quality is just nice and looks more exspensive than it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I bought this monitor 2 days ago now, and wow, that is all i can say about it. It is easily one of the most beautiful and neat looking monitors I have ever seen. The quality is amazing and the set-up couldn't be easier. All i can say is to anyone thinking about buying this monitor. Don't look anywhere else, this is the monitor to get.

Questions & Answers

Can you confirm which cables are supplied with this monitor?

I ask because don't want to buy a HDMI cable if one is already supplied with the product. Asus's website says supplied cables depend on region, which isn't particularly helpful.
