Thanks for the post. I could only find about 15 reviews within the last 12 months on prad.de and a few of them are discontinued. What makes the Asus VK246H so much cheaper than the SAMSUNG PX2370 other than its LED backlight and slim design? Currently I have a samsung 19''(3 years old) so I am leaning toward samsung more. Anyone else with suggestions?
Samsung is a better recognized name brand, therefore they can charge a higher premium and Asus. The Asus VK246H case and stand are basically all plastic while the Samsung PX2370 seems to use a little bit of metal in the stand. The Asus has been around since November / December 2008 therefore it is possible that Asus was able to improve the production process to produce more VK246H every hour, thus reducing costs. Lastly, Asus reduced the price simply to compete with newer monitors. This allows Newegg and other retailers to sell it for a lower price as well. The monitor was selling for $310 when it was introduced.
It's up to you to decide which of these two is better. Or to look at other possible candidates...
