Through out the years I have used a slew of different brands of monitors for gaming including Acer, ASUS, Dell, Samsung and the list goes on and on. They have actually all been great so it usually comes down to just minor differences.
You have to decide which specific monitor includes the features you need for gaming or whatever you are using it for.
The 24″ ASUS VS248H P is a native 1920×1080 resolution full HD 1080p display with a 60Hz refresh rate, 2ms response time, 50 million to 1 contrast ratio with a slim form factor.
It has a sleek and shiny finish and looks absolutely great from the this frame to the actual high
The inputs include HDMI, DVI and VGA so you won’t be restricted on what you can plug it into and also won’t have to worry about having to use those pesky converter cables.
Is the ASUS VS248H P monitor good for gaming?
For your average gamer 1080p is going to be absolutely perfect to play PC games on. Another thing you want is a fast response which this monitor also has at 2ms. The last thing you want is a slow monitor while playing fast paced competitive games.
Basically this monitor is perfect for all gaming and will look absolutely stunning for the price point. If your into Fallout, The Witcher, League of Legends, WOW or WHATEVER you are going to be happy with this monitor. It has just a slight downfall in the first-person shooter genre however.
Don’t get me wrong you can certainly play your Black Ops , CS and Destiny with this display but if you
are hardcore (I mean really hardcore) into FPS gaming then I’d recommend a monitor with a 144hz refresh rate like this Ben-Q for optimized performance. For me 24″ is the perfect size to allow your eyes to more easily track your foes across the screen in a highly competitive match.
I think there are a few main reasons this monitor is popular. The first being the size. 24″ is a really good size for most people’s desks without being too large and taking up too much space. I know when I went from my 20″ to my 24″ I couldn’t believe how much bigger it seemed.
My desk is also pretty little right now and I didn’t feel like the 24″ was too large. I think if I would have went 27″ or 30″ it would have spanned too wide and left me with very little extra space. Not to mention the price difference in those larger monitors.
The second reason I think these guys have hit the nail right on the head is the price to performance ratio. I don’t have an exact number for this because there are too many factors to calculate. However, you are getting a nice 1080p full HD, good looking, fast and inexpensive 24″ package for roughly $150. That is very cheap for a monitor of this quality.
While I do not think you should buy this monitor if you are looking for very top of the line equipment I do think the average gamer/user would be very happy with it. For the sub-$150 category it is right up there with the competitors.
Another idea would be to pair it with a PS4 or Xbox One for beautiful console gaming. It is affordable enough and would fit awesome for playing video games in a bedroom, dorm room or any other small space.
