Asus 23.6" ET2410 All-In-One PC Review

 

The AIO form factor isn't new by any means, but it's only recently begun to make a broad market appearance across a number of manufacturers beyond Apple or HP, who were among the first to pioneer the form factor. Better touchscreen technology combined...

It has a touch screen and Full HD resolution ; Integrated speakers can fill up a room ; Looks absolutely gorgeous ; Wireless mouse and keyboard

Weak integrated graphics ; No much storage space ; Dual-core processor doesn't pack a performance punch ; Why no Blu-ray drive

We weren't blown away by the benchmark numbers the ET2410IUTS-B019C turned out, nor did we expect to be when we glanced the spec sheet. There's just 4GB of RAM, a mechanical hard drive, and a lower end Core i3 2100 processor that Asus tasked with both...

ASUS Designo MS246H LCD monitor

 

Looking like a small flat-screen television instead of an LCD monitor, ASUS' Designo MS246H is one of the more interesting and stylish monitors we've ...

Aesthetically pleasing, 2ms response time, HDMI port, good performance for movies and games

Stand isn't very sturdy, can't be wall mounted, touch-sensitive controls can cause frustration, no DVI input

The ASUS Designo M246H's most distinctive feature is its design, but it still performs admirably when compared with regular LCD monitors of a similar size. The lack of a DVI input and annoying touch-sensitive buttons may cause some frustration.

Asus MS236H - 23in Ultra-Slim Monitor

 

Asus looks to impress with this ultra-slim 23in Full HD monitor from the Designo MS series.

It's just as well, then, that there aren't too many settings to fiddle with. Asus offers the usual selection of picture modes, all of which give the monitor an unnatural look that's best avoided. Aside from this you get the basic brightness, contrast...

Asus MS236H review

 

We see lots of flat-panels here at PC Advisor. And in all honesty, the majority of them tend to blur in the mind. Most modern flat-panels have fairly good colour, and most have very similar specifications lists.

Compared to a LG Flatron W2353V at less than £170, the Asus may seem a little expensive. But around £200 is still a fair price for a 23in screen. And given the excellent colour and the sumptuous looks of the Asus, we think this remains an excellent...

Asus MS236H review

 

If you're the kind of person who cares what their computer looks like, the MS236H should pique your interest. Asus' latest monitor is a 23in Full HD model, which is just 16.5mm thick at the edges. It has a glossy black bezel with a similarly reflective...

A great-looking 23in display, but it's let down by annoying touch-sensitive controls and distinctly average image quality.

Asus MS246H review

 

With a distinctive hollow circular stand that sits behind the monitor, the 24in, Full HD Designo MS246H manages to stick out from the crowd. It also doesn't skimp on too many features.

The ASUS Designo M246H's most distinctive feature is its design, but it still performs admirably when compared with regular LCD monitors of a similar size. The lack of a DVI input and annoying touch-sensitive buttons may cause some frustration.

Stuff magazine

 

Asus' eye-catching monitor isn't just super-skinny, it's great value too. Is it the ideal companion for photo editing and hi-def movies?

It may be skinny, but the MS246 is full of fat features and keenly priced to boot

Asus Designo MS236H

 

Large-screen monitor with an aesthetically pleasing, distinctive design. Games/movies are just satisfactory on this budget LCD.

Response time ; Decent viewing angles

Stand isn't very sturdy ; No DVI input ; Frustrating touch-sensitive controls

The most distinctive feature of the ASUS Designo M236H LCD monitor is its gorgeous design. But it is not a great buy despite the acceptable price for the screen size. Buy this monitor if you are only interested in the looks and the negatives mentioned...

Asus Designo MS246H

 

The MS246H works well if you're trying to reach a certain design aesthetic — just be aware that with this aesthetic comes a lack of adjustability options and frustrating menu buttons.

Bundled DVI to HDMI cable ; Slim profile

Poor viewing angles ; Can't play 24p video ; No 1:1 aspect ratio scaling

Ultimately, the MS246H works well if you're trying to reach a certain design aesthetic, and unlike other "designer" monitors it doesn't command a ridiculous price — just be aware that with this aesthetic comes a lack of adjustability options and...

Asus MS246H

 

Asus MS246H review: Asus' new Designo MS Series monitors are apparently "inspired by the binary state". Whatever that means, they're slim, attractive and built for high-definition video.

Great Specs

The glossy finish will attract fingerprints

Product Specifications

Your eyes are drawn to its unprecedented design - a fusion between the contrast of black and white, and the harmonious relationship of a line and circle. In itself, it is a work of art that accentuates any living space. The MS236H works as a secondary screen for your notebook; and has been ergonomically designed to be level with your eyes and notebook screen. It doubles your productivity with a dual screen display via a simple HDMI or VGA cable connection.
