  • Nice monitor. Good value.
    Reviewed by soManyFish - March 24, 2020

    This is an excellent budget gaming monitor. The screen is bright with good contrast. Online screen controls are among the easiest to use that I have seen with lots of configuration options. The speakers are neither the loudest nor do they have the best sound quality -- "adequate" might be the best word to describe them. The box included an HDMI cable and a male-male 1/8" stereo cable (which you would need if your video cable did not support audio). The the box did NOT include a Displayport cable. For the price, I consider ASUS VP228QG a good value.

  • Good price, DP doesn't work, caveat emptor
    Reviewed by Gordo - August 24, 2020

    I bought this monitor based on its small size and having both HDMI and DP inputs, after a 6 y/o Asus 23" monitor kept turning off intermittently (not the PS). When I brought the new monitor home, I discovered that it came with an HDMI cable, not a DP cable that I expected. When I tried to connect the DP output from my Radeon 570 card to it, nothing worked. Even the same DP cable from my work laptop that happily feeds my BENQ monitor will not recognize this sad little ASUS monitor. Even a DP-HMDI converter adapter wont work. Luckily, I have an HDMI switch, so I don't have the energy to take this sad little thing back.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

    Report

  • Nice picture install was a nightmare
    Reviewed by Dave - December 26, 2018

    This monitor was purchased for a new AMD Ryzen 5, Gigabyte motherboard build. The monitor would no way post to bios. Error was "out of range" on the display. I managed to get it to work by installing an old monitor, low resolution settings at 60Hz. Installed Windows 10 then connected the ASUS monitor while still under low resolution. Windows 10 eventually detected the ASUS and installed the proper drivers. Still get "out of range" on startup until the OS kicks in and then the monitor works fine. 1 Dead pixel straight out the box. The monitor will be going back for an exchange or refund. Aside from the problems the picture is good!
