This Asus monitor shows the type of quality known from Asus. It has HDMI cable, along with DVI and VGA cable. It also has speakers, but usually speakers on monitor aren't good. This is no exception to that rule. It is a normal 16:9 aspect ratio, which I don't know, but are popular on these resolution. This 24" is a solid buy for anyone that wants them. The quality is amazing, and the color quality is good. However, if you're looking for exact color, then this may not be the monitor for you. However, if not, the quality is very good, and the design is very good. The black mette fits very well with most dell type desktops and isn't too thick to be annoying, if you want to use dual monitor. I recommend it for everyone.
