Asus ASUS PG191 BlackSilver 19 2ms (GTG) LCD Monitor Built in 1.3MP web cam & Speakers with 15w Sub Woofer

 

The 19-inch Asus PG191, a pricey but unique gaming LCD, has many unusual qualities. This novelty item costs a pricey $449 (as of January 12, 2007), but if you like your monitors to do much more than just display documents and images, it might be the...

Includes a built-in webcam ; Has microphone and headphone ports

Built-in speakers produce so-so sound

Though this monitor's text and graphics were not as strong as other models, it includes a webcam and numerous screen modes.

ASUS PG191 Gaming Monitor

 

With superb image quality, the 19in ASUS PG191 LCD will appeal to gamers due to its 2ms response time, built in speakers, and webcam. However its size...

Excellent image quality, 2ms response time, Superior sound quality, easy to use, built-in webcam

Fairly bulky, not widescreen

It's not widescreen, but this monitor delivers where it counts: image, response and sound.

Asus PG191 Gaming Monitor

 

The PG191 boasts a 2ms response time, a subwoofer and a touch screen OSD. But is this gaming monitor as good as it looks?

Round the left hand side of the screen you’ll find three USB 2.0 ports, the microphone sockets and a headphone socket, which is very useful as it means you don’t have to root round the back of your PC if you want to plug headphones in. Above the USB...

Gamers Rock

 

I replaced a Hitachi 21" CM812U that monitor cost me about $800 some 10 or 12 years ago but it was beginning to flicker(can't have that). When I first hooked up this monitor I didn't like it(must be a digital thing) compared to my CRT but I'm getting...

Very kool looking monitor. No complaints about the display quality

Not a widescreen. It took some work to get the web cam to function. I had to download software from the asus webcite

Nice all-in-one LCD

 

Asus builds great motherboards and other internal PC components, from my experience. This LCD was a great idea just wish they would've included a mic and beafier sound on the speakers. I hope I can get text to show a little sharper. Will experiment...

Great price with the $100 rebate. Much cheaper than the larger widescreen version. I bought this for the built-in webcam and speaker/subwoofer combo so that I didn't have so many wires running around. I was going for the minimalist Mac look. Webcam is...

No built-in mic for the webcam, so I have to add another peripheral with a wire hanging off the back of the PC running along the desktop. Wish the speakers were louder. I maxed all my system volumes and the speakers were only slightly loud. Driver CD...

Typical Asus Product and Pricing

 

Just from looking at the specs, it's an average panel in every way. Fancy cabinet. Typical Asus pricing, i.e., overpriced-- it costs 2x as much as other monitors w/exactly the same panel in it. Get 2 cheap 19 in widescreens with the same panel or a...

Asus!1!11one ; Looks nice

Overpriced like crazy ; Average panel in it, yet 2x the price of identical panels
