Dual monitor and VH236H

Recommended Posts

I currently use the ASUS VH236H and I am now looking to get a second monitor. I was originally going to get a second VH236H but I see they are discontinued for whatever reason and was wondering if anyone knew why? I will be using this for work purposes to start since I am a complete noob to multiple monitor anything, however I am open to the idea of multiple monitor gaming in the future. Any advice or tips? Should I be looking at a different monitor? I would prefer them to look at similar as possible just for OCD reasons :teehee:.

 

Thanks in advance!

who knows why, most like a marketing thing. If you are using it for normal work than it doesn't matter what you buy. just get something cheap.

The monitor you have is discontinued due to the fact it was released back in 2009 and is now out of date. The new version of it is the VS239H-P, which includes LED backlighting and an e-IPS panel. Its stand apparently isn't that great, but can be tightened or attached to a dual/triple monitor mount.

Thank you I was hoping there would just be a updated model I could look at. The stand does look completely redone. Do you think it will sit higher than the stand on the VH236H? I know the one I have now doesnt have any adjustment in the stand and it sits on my desk. I see the VH238H has the identical stand but that monitor is apparently already out of date as well. I am worried the second monitor will not line up correctly. Also why would they go from 2ms (VH236H) to 5ms in the VS239H-P. Would this cause issues?

You're welcome. Took a bit of digging to find it since ASUS doesn't explicitly state the new model, but luckily Amazon does. :lol: Response time isn't an issue at all and is barely noticeable when it's under 12ms. As for it sitting higher, there's a chance since the stand only allows for tilt adjustments. If it does sit a bit higher, you could place a magazine or something under the other screen to make it even. Or if you don't mind spending a bit more, you can pick up a dual monitor mount and then just attach the screens to it.

 

Btw in regards to LCD vs LED should I even worry about it?

 

Not really, no. You can play around with brightness/contrast settings on both to get them both looking right. The newer one is an e-IPS panel though, so the colors on it are going to look a bit better than the older one regardless of brightness/contrast levels.

Alright thanks for the help, unless anyone recommends otherwise the plan is to go with the VS239H-P then use this dual monitor mount to set everything up. Hopefully it doenst end up looking awkward.

You're welcome. I think that's a solid idea with the mount so you can be sure the screens will match in terms of height. The monitors look to have a pretty similar bezel, so everything should look alright.
