          Comments about Asus 24" Black LCD Computer Monitor:

          I purchased this monitor as a step toward getting a PS3. I don't have a TV, much less an HDTV, so I needed something for hi-def gaming on the PS3. I patch my 360 through a monitor, and I swapped it out on this one while I save for the PS3.

          I have played several games on it, but BlazBlue is probably the best test. The colors were sharp, and I had no blurring. I haven't checked for frameskip, but since it doesn't have a digital tuner, that probably isn't a problem. So, on a practical level, it works great. Granted, I could spend a lot more for a higher-quality product, but I can't afford that, and this is great for a budget set-up.

          It maxes out at 1920/1080, though. I like higher resolutions in my monitors, but its size makes it so that the difference betwee that and higher resolutions are difficult to see (still, there are some games I will not move over to it for that reason).

          I also tried it on my Linux box, and it works great. In fact, I'd never used widescreen for computing before, and I can say that I'm never going back. It's just too much of an improvement.

          It's a no-frills monitor, though. It does one thing: it shows pictures. It does them well, but don't expect many bells and whistles. Personally, I like that, but I know a lot of people expect them (Heck, I still use vi to text edit). The most you get is the ability to set color, sharpness, and whatnot, and it has presets for games, multimedia, computing, and whatnot.

          One downside is that the built-in speakers seem to be inconsistent in volume. However, I didn't buy this for sound. I bought it to display kick *** games. I use external speakers anyway. Still, it is a relevant detail.

          So, the bottom line is that if you want something that displays a nice, sharp, no-frills picture, this is a good monitor. If you want bells and whistles, then it is not.

              The picture is very good and has all the connections you would need. you can adjust to a 4:3 picture ratio if needed. I compared this product against others and picture was as good or better than more exspensive models. the adjust buttons are mechanical and a littlr clumsy but you don't use them much. All in all great product.
