Does anyone have this monitor ASUS VS247H-P 23.6"?
http://www.amazon.com/VS247H-P-1920x...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I am wondering why the weight of it is stated as a heavy 15 pounds, while other monitors comparable to it are about half the weight, 6-9 pounds? Is the monitor itself so heavy and why? or if it's any accessories, what?

Go straight to ASUS for specs: https://www.asus.com/us/Commercial-M...pecifications/

Net weight (just the monitor): 4.4 kg (~9.5 lbs)
Gross weight (monitor plus packaging, i.e. ship weight): 6.8 kg (~15 lbs)

Funny thing is the packaging adds 5+ lbs. Also, amazon only show the packaged weight for this model but (seems) not other models.
