I used the ASUS vh232h for a few weeks, primarily for gaming and surfing the web. I wrote several reviews using it and even did a little coding, what little coding I actually do on my Windows desktop anymore.
Games I played include Torchlight, Mirror’s Edge, Left 4 Dead 2, and Just Cause 2. I even played a little bit of Braid and some old school Ricochet.
All of the games were impressively clear. I attempted to record the screen while playing the first two, but the camera just couldn’t do it justice.
Of course, one of the negatives of getting a larger screen is that text needs to be larger in order not to strain my eyes. Also, I tend to want to push games to the native resolution, so the framerate drops. Going from 1680×1050 to 1920×1080 wasn’t a giant rate drop, but it was noticeable. Time to upgrade my video card!
I also watched clips from a few movies. From Dusk Till Dawn remains one of my favorite movies with which to test monitors. I was impressed with the appearance!
The speakers are alright. They’re nothing to write home about, though. They’re sufficient for system audio, and perhaps some music. As space savers for a system on which headphones will generally be used, they’re perfect for that rare occasion that speakers are desired.
Also, no dead or stuck pixels on this unit.
