The ASUS VS247H is a budget monitor that has all the features needed for a 1080p monitor. With a 23.6 screen, the pixel density is too good, resulting in sharp images and crisp text. The monitor is great for media consumption and gaming.
If you are looking for an inexpensive monitor to connect to your computer or game console, this is for you.
Design and build quality
Gone are the days when monitors seemed boring to look at. Like many monitors produced today, this monitor is very stylish. This design is completely black and with a glossy sheen.
It may have a lot of residue because of this sleek design that ASUS has used on it. The border is very tight and when pressing, only a small amount of distortion is seen on the LCD next to it. The whole monitor is made of plastic and is quite light in weight.
The markers for the controls are at the bottom right of the border and the controls are below the monitor. These buttons are quite firm and slightly rounded.
This makes it easy to push the buttons. Those who like monitors with a simple and minimalist design, make this monitor look attractive. On the other hand, it has a good style that is attractive to most people.
Connection options for ASUS VS247H are on the back. Display options include DVI, HDMI and D-Sub ports.
In the slot, where these ports are located, there is also a 3.5 mm audio jack. When watching movies, listening to music, playing games, etc., a headphone can be attached to it.
This base has a chrome coating that adds to the light factor of the monitor. The base is round and can be attached to the base with a screw. The base, which is circular, has a textured design that looks good.
Location is not the best thing we have ever seen. There is a lot of vibration when the monitor is attached to the base.
This shaking is present even when pushing the controls at the bottom of the monitor. In summary of the design and build quality, the ASUS VS247H is sleek and solid, but the base is something we weren’t too happy with.
ASUS VS247H is an LCD screen with LED backlight that supports 1920×1080 resolution. Although this is one of the cheapest models available, but with all the basic connectivity options you can get from a monitor priced in the range of Rs 11,000.
For example, there are three display ports – one for DVI, HDMI, and D-Sub. There’s also a 3.5mm analog audio port where users can connect their external speakers or headphones.
There is the usual set of preset display settings for night viewing and gameplay. There are also sRBG and standard modes, so more advanced users can change the settings to their liking.
While there is a dedicated input source button, the same feature can be accessed through the user interface.
There is also an eco-mode that reduces backlighting. It can be useful if you also use the screen in the dark.
If you are using a headphone and there is no volume control on it, you can use the volume controls on the screen. The interface is simple and easy to understand, it does not take more than a few minutes.
To test the performance of ASUS VS247H, Spyder 3 software, DisplayMate test, and other video playback tests have been run.
Before starting any work and performing any of the tests, Spyder 3 Elite was used to calibrate the monitor.
First, the brightness and contrast were adjusted, and then the colors were adjusted to reach the required color temperature. When the screen was calibrated, the actual contrast ratio of the screen was calculated and it was 603: 1 which is still very impressive.
In the Optimal Gray Scale and Optimal Contrast Experiment, gray, white, and black reproduce well after Spyder adjustments.
The darkest grays and brightest whites are well produced and no green is observed, which is commonly seen on other displays in the dark gray bar. The black surface is really good and from the second block onwards, the block is visible.
The colors look a bit vivid, and this is due to the change of settings when running Spyder software. In the reverse film contract test, we observed that all colors appear to be accurate in all three bands.
A slightly bluish band was also seen at the bottom. Of course, these items are only visible on the blank page.
This may not be visible when playing content on the page. Standard screen colors look like yellow, green, and saturated red, but other colors are carefully produced. During the color intensity scale test, all blocks were clearly visible.
In the color bar test pattern, we noticed that there was a white seam between the green and pink bars, while the edge between the pink and red looks soft.
The colors are well presented and you will surely enjoy watching the movie or the movie on it.
When the monitor is calibrated, the colors generally look saturated. The movie playback looks good – no sign of blur or shadow. The colors look rich and the slopes look smooth without any patches of closed or stripes.
LED technology helps the Asus VS247H consume 50% less power than traditional displays.
Power consumption is about 33 watts when active and 0.5 in power saving mode, so it is an average power consumption compared to other displays in the same price range.
