[Review] HP VH240a: Honestly It's nothing to write home about

HP VH240a: review
Pros
  • Full HD 23.8 -inch screen
  • IPS technology with 178ยบ viewing angles
  • Adjustable inclination and orientation 
  • HDMI + VGA connectivity
Cons
  • Does not have USB-C input
  • Not the best sound quality
These days, getting a good monitor that delivers a modern look, a good display, and varying positions is not that hard of an undertaking. What might be harder is getting one that delivers on all these fronts whilst maintaining a budget-friendly price. However, such is the case of the monitor we're going to talk about today, the HP VH240a.

Let's get one thing out of the way here. This is not a high-end monitor nor does it pretend to be. This is an affordable, entry-level 24-inch monitor that delivers a Full HD resolution, decent color correctness, and very limited connectivity options - ie: forget about the DisplayPort -. 

Having said that, this doesn't mean the monitor is without its virtues and after studying this monitor up close it's no surprise that it's managed to captivate so many users thus far. But should you buy it? That's what we're here to determine. 


[Review] Asus VG248QE: Speed is the Name of the Game

Asus VG248QE: review
Pros
  • Panel Full HD of 24 inches
  • 144 Hz refresh rate
  • 1 ms response time

Couple that with an extensive connectivity suite and look for all that at a reasonable price and there simply aren't that many monitors out there that measure up.

Having said that, today we're here to talk to you guys about a monitor that certainly does measure up, the Asus VG248QE, a gaming monitor that boasts a massive following due to its balanced specs and reasonable price. But, is this the monitor for you? That's what we're here to find out!
