Asus MW221u

 

Widescreen monitors once the choice of enthusiasts and power users, have dropped in prices rapidly, and are now finding favor with consumers. Looking to gain a foothold in this rapidly increasing mar

ASUS MW221U

 

ASUS' MW221U is a high end 22in monitor designed for the hardcore gamer. With its lightning quick 2ms response time, ghosting and blurring are all but...

Great response time, sharp and clear pictures, HDCP compliant

Colour balance wasn't as good as we'd hoped

Gamers who are after a high speed monitor will be more than satisfied with this 22in model from ASUS.

Do More, See More With Asus Widescreen LCD

 

With an abundance of LCD monitors in the market, users may have a hard time choosing which one suits them the best. We take a look at the new Asus MW221C and find out whether this 22-incher is slicker than your average.

High native resolution (1680 x 1050); Different Splendid modes

Limited connectivity; Aluminium design of the base and lower part of the bezel may turn potential buyers off

With an abundance of LCD monitors in the market, users may have a hard time choosing which one suits them the best. We take a look at the new Asus MW221C and find out whether this 22-incher is slicker than your average.

High native resolution (1680 x 1050) ; Different Splendid modes

Limited connectivity ; Aluminium design of the base and lower part of the bezel may turn potential buyers off

The Asus MW221C LCD monitor is one of those products worth buying because of its widescreen function, Splendid Video Intelligence Technology, high contrast ratio of 2000:1, and 2ms response time. If you are looking for a simple monitor that can do all...

Asus MW221U

 

Impressive speakers and sleek styling help to compensate for the average image quality.

Elsewhere, you’ll find an HDCP-compliant DVI port and a VGA interface next to it. All the necessary cables are supplied, and a large rear cover clips on to hide the connections from view and to keep the cables tidy. The shiny stand is sturdy, although...

Decent, Maybe look for a cheaper one

 

Decent, not worth the full $350 it cost when I bought it. The 2 ms is good but to tell you the truth, I can't tell a huge difference. I don't suggest buying this if you don't have a good video card(s) to use it to its full potential. Now that it a...

Gets alot of "wows" and great for watching movies or tv on at night, no need for any tv's (when you have a tv tuner). Love the huge resolutions available and great looking games. 2ms response time

Quality doesn't exactly wow me. you HAVE to be set up exactly in front of it, and exactly parallel to it or it will look discolored. Speakers are junk, but I never expected anything out of monitor speakers

ASUS MW221U Black-Silver 22" 2ms (GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers

 

Very nice design. I get no blur on anything so far. Nice crisp clear image

The built in speakers aren't very loud for me, you can barely most things with all settings at max
