Asus VG236H 120Hz 3D-Capable Monitors Appearing on the Market

July 16th, 2010 · 20 Comments · General 3D News

It seems that Asus is finally joining the 3D monitor market too as it’s first 3D-capable monitors are starting to become available on the market with a price of around $500 USD which may be a bit high. I’m talking about the 23-inch Asus VG236H, a Full HD 120Hz monitor that can be used with the 3D Vision active shutter glasses to display 3D content. The bigger 27-inch Asus PG276H is expected to be available later this year, probably by the end of it and of course this model will also be using a fast 120Hz panel and will be capable of displaying 3D content with the help of active shutter glasses. But back on the Asus VG236H, it is already listed on Newegg with a price of $499.99 USD with Free Shipping and 3D Vision glasses bundled. Checking the global Asus website reveals that there are two variations of the monitor – VG236H and VG236HE, although they seem to be exactly the same, so it just might be the same product, but for different regions named differently…

Specifications of the Asus VG236H monitor:

Panel Size: 23″ (58.4cm) Wide Screen 16:9, TN
Native Resolution: 1920×1080 pixels
Pixel Pitch: 0.265 mm
Brightness(Max): 400 cd/m2
Contrast Ratio (Max.): 100000:1 (dynamic)
Viewing Angles (CR≧10): 170°(H) /160°(V)
Response Time: 2 ms
Video Inputs: Dual-link DVI-D (support NVIDIA 3D Vision), Component (YPbPr), HDMI
Power Consumption: < 60W operating, < 2W in standby Monitor stand: tilt +15°~-5°, swivel and height adjustment Dimension (WxHxD): 550.2x419.5x250mm Weight: 7 kg

Looking through the specs of the monitor you’ll probably notice that it has 400 cd/m2 maximum brightness and 100000:1 dynamic contrast, another interesting thing about it is the fact that it is apparently a glossy display (not matte display), unlike all others already on the market. If it being with a glossy is a good or bad thing is yet to be seen and I hope to be soon able to test the monitor myself… on and yes the monitor has a height adjustable stand… ;)
