Asus MW201U review


With a shiny aluminium front and stand, Asus's MW201U has a slightly retro design that should blend into both home and office environments.

ASUS MW201U Black-Silver 20" 2ms (GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers


Good Res, Fast response time, Clean look, and large

Great LCD


I was very reluctant going with Asus for an LCD monitor because I know a few other brands usually come out on top, but I must say the quality of this LCD follows the quality of the rest of Asus' products. Note: the onboard speakers are mounted on the...

Well, bleh


The monitor came with no dead pixels,set up in a few minutes, and has a reasonably thought-out controls.

All things said, I really didn't get the feeling that I really got my money's worth out of this monitor, I expected.

Asus M201U: A Decent Alternative to an Apple Display


Last August, I got a new Apple MacBook Pro 15" 2.2 Core Duo Intel laptop. I have been an Apple user since 1992. The college where I work supplies faculty with computers, but not external monitors. At the time, I debated whether to spend the money for ...
