MLG has released that the monitor used this season is the ASUS VH236H
Has anyone played on it that can give feedback?

EDIT: Here is a link to it.

Sweet, they look awesome. Maybe best buy will have a cheap one on Black Friday, then I might actually get one :)

Thats weird, i thought they would use the acer...my friend has the asus vh226h, an inch smaller. I dont really like his, the asus is kind of cheap compared to viewsonic, the colors are much more accurate on my viewsonic. But the 23 inch version might be newer and better.

Meh, I personally think the viewsonic was the coolest looking tv used in MLG competitions. I like tvs that look sleek and not blocky though... if you know what I mean.

Maybe as default settings, but MLG usually had 16:9 ratio if I'm not mistaken. They may have had to go into the tv control panel though.

I OWN THIS MONITOR

personally i dont play halo on it, the colors are amazing but it is deff not an xbox monitor. I use it for my PC and Starcraft looks great. VGA does not play well on it, and hdmi is TOO hd for halo. The viewsonics are 10X better. Plus the screen is really wide and not tall enough, its weird to play on.

16:9 setting on a 16:10 tv feels waaaay different than a native 16:9 tv.. i wouldn't be surprised if some people hate this tv change

though, i loved going from 16:10 mlg settings to native 16:9.. so perhaps people will love the change too

As the specs show though this is just an average HDTV. Here is a quick list of pros and cons

Pros-
2ms response
16:9 ratio
20000:1 contrast ratio

Cons-
LCD
20000:1 contrast ratio


Notice i put the contrast ratio in both pros and cons, the reason why is that if MLG choose an LED display TV you would be getting TV's with contrast rations 100x better, Literally.

Wow well now I feel bad for the pros if this is true. I love my ViewSonic as well, the things rock. I hope they are better than what you said, otherwise there could be problems...

It would be a lot more expensive too. The one they picked will work fine for the events.

I don't know what model mine is, but I play on a 21.5 inch Asus, and I love it. It's freaking incredible.

Shame that the new Asus Monitor is not available in the UK.

i'm glad they upgraded the equipment... the last MLG I was at really disappointed me in terms of equipment.

This TV is sick.. finally a 16:9 aspect ratio.. no more shitty 16:10 aspect ratio. Halo (and most video games) are meant to be played on a 16:9 aspect ratio so there wont be any black bars like there were with the Viewsonic. Good shit MLG.

So how does the Asus compare to Viewsonic in terms of gameplay and any differences?

Asus is awesome! they work with lamborghini's and helped pixar out with their computers. very excited for this and I want one very badly!


I swear to God, if I were a piano player or an actor or something and all those dopes thought I was terrific, I'd hate it. I wouldn't even want them to CLAP for me. People always clap for the wrong things.
