So I did a replacement with Amazon.com and the newest VE247H monitor came in today. It's worse then the one I was going to send back. I don't know what happened but ASUS quality and consistency control must be terrible.
My VE247H that was manufactured November 2011 is perfect: white so bright it's blinding and black so dark it appears the monitor is off.
The September 2012 manufactured one simply didn't compare in terms of white/black levels. It was distracting.
This latest one is manufactured in November 2012 and it's straight up trash. My black is simply dark gray no matter how much I try to tune the settings.
I don't expect monitors to be perfect matches but I want them at least somewhat close. Very disappointed.

|deals2dream||ASUS is cheating people, "the LED is only on select models " and "display port is on select models only" what is this select models means? The model number VE247H but it depends whether you get these features or not. This company seems to be a very flase marketing. I regret buying it.|

My issue is my older one is perfect. White and black levels are superior. The newer one simply does not do white as you can see my the picture I attached. Older monitor on right.
I want to exchange and hope I can get a good set again but Amazon is OOS and then there is the rebate issue if I wait to exchange.

...I'm currently regretting my purchase: I'm using this at work with my Dell E6410, and the screen is flickering whenever it has to display certain solid colors. The flickering is less noticeable if I use a black or white background, but I didn't expect to see any flickering at all. (FYI, my laptop only has a VGA connector.) Any tips for my issue are greatly appreciated.

|mxjs19||I just bought this monitor and I the box says that it is a VE247 LCD monitor. I thought it was suppose to be LED, did I get ripped off? I'm also reading the tag for the model # and it also says VE247 LCD monitor. It is missing the letter H, should I return it?|

|SkrolZ||I can only speak for the VE247H.|

|tinymonkeyt||Is the ghosting issue referring to the VE247H, or the VS247H?|

This is my first time posting on SD EVAR, and it's because I wanted to warn people about these monitors.
I had an old BenQ 24". I bought 2 of these to replace the single BenQ to have a dual setup. Within an hour, I was Googling how to fix the ghosting. I couldn't stand it. You have to enter a secret menu and change a setting... EVARY TIME you turn on the monitor. I returned both of them and reverted back to my single BenQ setup (eventually finding another used BenQ).
Some might not notice, but I did. And it drove me up the wall. Someone also mentioned sarcastically that it wouldn't bother them because they are only using Microsoft Word. Well, that's where it's MOST apparent. Take a white background with dark letters and drag it around the screen. The ghosting becomes VERY obvious.
People, beware. All the previous people saying that the ghosting is an issue of concern are right. I am actually very surprised the amazing reviews these monitors got. I'm assuming its the same people who say there is no noticeable input lag on large HD TV's and video games. And mind you, I had two so it wasn't just a fluke.
tl;dr These monitors have a bad ghosting issue. Speaking out of experience, I wouldn't recommend them.

Damn it. My VE247H just came in. Set it up and the damn thing doesn't look anywhere near as good or bright as my other VE247H that I bought six months back. I've been playing around for over an hour. Simply can't get white to look like white on the newest monitor. It has a dull yellow tint to it.
Additionally, the monitor's GUI is different than my original. Same model, same revision, same version. Only difference is the manufactured date.
Anyone experiencing the same problems?

Not a great deal!
Probably as good or better than than any other TN monitor !
The devil is in the details! A quick glance down the chart suggest that it may be an IPS monitor. Too good to be true?? You bet! It is only select models (which this isn't) that are IPS panels.
I have been using Dell IPS monitors for a couple of years now and have been spoiled with them, particularly for color accuracy. Color accuracy is important to me for my photo work.
This offer looked to good to be true...
