The Good Given its IPS panel tech, the Asus VG23AH comes with a surprisingly low price tag. It also sports wide viewing angles and great movie performance. Its useful ergonomic features and dual HDMI ports round out an affordable package.
The Bad The passive 3D performance is bad, with terrible ghosting and shallow depth. The build quality feels a bit plasticky, too, and the swivel feature feels a bit stiff.
The Bottom Line The Asus VG23AH nails it in price, features, and 2D performance, but falls flat on its screen in 3D.
With an in-plane switching (IPS)-based screen, a useful assortment of connections and ergonomic options, and a price at around $300, the VG23AH might sound like a monitor worthy of praise.
However, once you've experienced the monitor's sorry excuse for 3D, you may find yourself singing a less supportive tune.
Design and features
At first glance, the Asus VG23AH bears more than a passing resemblance to the company's . Aside from a small color highlight difference, both the foot stand and neck at practically identical. Like the VG278H, the VG23AH's circular foot stand measures 9.9 inches in diameter, with a 3.1-inch-wide neck extending out of it and the screen height can be adjusted by 3.7 inches.
