    I bought this even though I saw a lot of people complaining about getting the WebCam working. I am happy I did. As part of the install, you must attach the included USB cable to the monitor. This will allow the WebCam to be recognised by the PC. In XP, the WebCam worked just fine without installing any additional software. I decided to try the ASUS software anyhow, and it includes a bunch of nice extras (special effects, overlays, etc…) I am positive that all of the negative reviews regarding the camera had to do with not attaching the USB cable.

    The monitor itself is great. Now we play Lego Star Wars II at 1920×1080.

    Update 12-2010:
    After upgrading to Windows 7 Professional, I downloaded a new version of the software and it did not want to work anymore. I was receiving the same error that told me it is only for a LapTop.
    Luckily, I had an older copy and once I installed that, it worked.

    Having read many reviews about a great many monitors in the month prior to purchase, it was with a degree of trepidation that I ordered the ASUS VK246H 24-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor with built in web cam. I was somewhat on the fence about the camera model because I have nothing but mac computers these days, 15 years now and never have looked back.. .. but i digress. A few of the reviews I read were very pleased to say that the webcam worked with their macs and some apparently did not realize that the usb cable was necessary to operate the camera. Well .. at first i placed the order as usual with super saver free shipping, figuring that if the camera did not work, I would decide what to do about that at the time.. anyway ..the date proposed for delivery was near two almost three weeks away. So, i called customer service and the young lady from Amazon who assisted me suggested dropping the original order and signing up for the free trial of Amazon Prime.. I was elated to know that the trial is three months long .. can be canceled at any time, and by the time the monitor was reordered I was now a member of Amazon Prime. Well much to my disbelief, the monitor arrived two mornings thereafter … and i would say i was near stunned to have such almost instant turnaround to say the least, and that the shipping container arrived in perfect condition, and inside was yet another box with the ASUS packaging, also in pristine condition. I was very excited and went about the unpacking rather methodically so as not to miss anything, like all the cabling that came with it.. opening bagged cables and what not, the base etc… well by then i had already moved the old monitor off of my desk and plugged in all the necessities into my mac mini server. Pressed the on button on the mini and bada boom.. the most beautiful bright clear screen i’ve ever owned came to life and that was that 🙂 .. Perfect.. for me.. would not be too strong.. no messing with settings immediately, standard mode was just fine .. of course the mac recognized it like they were old friends, went immediately to 1080p and my corner of the world of computers had stepped into a future i had not expected. Bright, sharp, clear.. thrilling, my first LCD monitor aside from my mac book pro.. I went about the normal things i do in the morning looking at email, various pages i keep an eye on .. and then.. i remembered.. this things has a web cam…. So.. i opened photo booth and nigh on instantly .. there was my mug on the screen lookin back at me. I was surprised and pleased that the camera being only 1.3 was so sharp and defined (now..for sure i need a facelift):), i think i even forgot to make coffee 🙂 Simply could not get my fill of just how nice it was. Now I’m no expert on screens, and I had read some of the rather more critical reviews about dead pixels and how the color was only so good but none of it mattered, i was lucky enough to get a monitor with no dead pixels and now.. a full month later i’m writing my review. To say that .. for the money, the monitor was an excellent buy would be a severe understatement, and the fact of the camera being a mere ten dollars more than the model sans camera truly adds to the overall perfect experience, from both Amazon as well as ASUS. I would recommend this monitor to anyone who wants to spend a modest amount of money and get top quality and workmanship, not a scratch or blemish of any kind to be found. Amazon and ASUS both deserve high marks for a well made and well marketed product that i am quite sure will keep me satisfied for years to come. i suggest that you read all the reviews and make up your own mind of course, but, i’m a rather cagey and critical rascal when it comes to computer equipment. Haven’t got anything critical to say about the entire process. Buy from Amazon with confidence. And Mac users… the camera works beautifully .. take the chance if you’re uncertain, i’m sure glad i did.. and check out Amazon prime. If you order often, it will pay for itself rapidly in terms of fast and satisfying shopping.. I don’t think i would cross the street to purchase anything like this again.. I’ll call Amazon first and you should too. Oh… and by the way, watchin movies is a royal panic, full HD, wow … what a bargain !!!

    I am a professional 15 years old experienced digital artist. I am working with professional screens at work, I also have dell 24wfp at home, I order this monitor from amazon for using dual screen for my reference pictures and web browsing on the other monitor, I wasn’t expecting amazing quality, but I am really surprised with the image quality, my $800 Dell monitor is only slightly better then this Asus. First time I plug it, it was too bright, I mean the images, not the screen. I was kind of disappointed. Then I discover the scenery mode and I tweak the brightness, sharpness and the saturation, like about 5-10 minutes I get almost the same image like my dell monitor. Do not bother the other setups, just select the scenery mode and put this settings up,
    Brightness 51, Contras 64, Sharpness 44, Saturation 50 or 55. so it’s pretty much the same as calibrated dell 24wfp screen.

    There is some downs on this monitor too, Up and down angles are getting darker, Left right is better, you don’t move your head up and down much so if you can get the right angle it will work great. if you like to put your monitor high up, you are going to hate the stand, it is horrible. You can not move your monitor up and down, I put a ikea furniture piece to raise it up.
    it is looking good actually, I glued some artwork on it, now it looks retro, I love it, but I am lucky that I have this furniture piece, Otherwise I might going to use books to raise it so it could be looks boring because I can only use my old Stephen king books as a raiser. 🙂
    There is also details lost on light images, it is very very slight, sharpness is great, colors are amazing, I turn down the green a little like %3 to match my pro screen. So overall I am very pleased with this monitor even after stand and brightness works.
    I still draw my images on my dell screen, because it’s a bit better, also it has 1920×1600, so there is 120 pixel difference vertically.
    so, it is perfect for second monitor, but if it is your only monitor and you are a digital artist, buy pro monitors. For other type of user this monitor is supersonic! Actually even if you are digital artist with a tight budget or if you are a beginner artist, it might be your favorite monitor.
    if my pro screen dies, I might get one more Asus, and use that $600 difference for buying 600 glow stick from dollar stores then crack them at the same time and watch them.

    Other then the image quality, I never test the speakers or HDMI I don’t care.
    Digital camera is not working with XP 64 bit because there is no driver, so it feels like my asus monitor has a blind eye on top of her head.
    Anyways this is a good buy, for $209, it’s a steal. I recommend this monitor anyone except digital artist who is going to use it as a main monitor as a main monitor.
