Asus PM17TU Monitor

 

The Asus PM17TU looks appealing--its bezel has a shiny black patina. The display's image quality is impressive, too. But despite those favorable traits, the slipshod manner in which the maker incorporated some of its features keep me from giving the...

Smooth black bezel looks nice

Built-in speakers provide poor sound

At $279 (as of 2/16/06), the Asus is certainly a good deal, provided you can live with its lack of adjustability

Asus ASUS PM17TU Black 17 3ms (graytogray) LCD Monitor Built in Speakers

 

Artwork: Rick Rizner, Chris Manners

Smooth black bezel looks nice

Built-in speakers provide poor sound

This worthy performer displayed fine text and pretty graphics, but its design is dull and it offers few extras.

Asus PM17TU 17inch Gamer LCD Display Review

 

The Asus PM17TU is an economical 17" LCD monitor designed for gamers. Its prime attribute is a fast screen which boasts a ghost-busting 3ms G-to-G pixel response time.

With such a mixed bag of impressions left after our time working with the 17" ASUS PM17TU LCD display, we're reticent to recommend it. To be fair, the Asus PM17TU is perfectly suited for fast paced gaming, but without proper calibration it really falls...

ASUS PM17TU LCD

 

Over the course of the last few years, the PC industry has witnessed a major transition away from the world of traditional CRT monitors, towards products based on LCD displays. With the inception of LCD's, there was no denying the handful of advantages...

As far as any 4:3 aspect ratio LCD is concerned, the ASUS performed flawlessly. The display exhibited exceptional brightness and contrast thanks to the quality panel used by ASUS. The thin bezel on the PM17TU helps maximize the rather small 17"...

Asus Review

 

With 800:1 contrast ratio, 5ms grey to grey response time, 2 x 2W built in speakers and a headphone jack the Asus MB17SE LCD monitor won't let you down when you have an important presentation approaching at work or when saving a damsel in distress in...

The Asus MB 17SE is one of the best LCD monitors on the market in regards to display and features; however, it may be difficult ordering one of these machines because you can not buy directly from Asus, you have to find a reseller. Additionally, your...

Attractive Design, 4 USB ports built in, Excellent image quality

Average base, poor speakers

At this price point, the Asus is certainly a good deal, provided you can live with its lack of adjustability.

Asus PM17TU LCD

 

The Asus PM17TU is not just an ordinary LCD; it sports the Color Shine technology which gives it a definite edge.

Excellent picture quality, Brilliant contrast, Bright and sharp display, Color shine technology, Soothing visual experience, 3 ms response time

Lower view angles, Minor color registration issue, Slightly expensive

I firmly believe that this PSU will be with me for a long long time. If you can spare the funds, I definitely recommend it.

The monitor is very crisp and clear but... be carefull. Read below

So far I was very happy with any purchase from NEWEGG. But this product.... maybe bad luck. I have return this screen because of very bad quality of the picture when watching DVDs. They replace it with another one that works fine but has like 0.5 inch...

best LCD I've seen so far

 

screen takes a few hours to "break in" after that everything is great.

Very bright and crisp display. high 600:1 contrast ratio is great for movies. ("black" is actually display as black") no ghosting

speakers might as well not be installed at all. but i'm not using them so it's not a concern

Product Specifications

The response time of the PM17TU reaches 4ms (gray to gray) through the revolutionary ASUS Trace Free Technology. To deliver smooth and flawless video, Trace Free Technology implemented the innovative anti-double-edge overdriving method with noise reduction circuits to reduce response time in all gray-to-gray levels, resulting in superior image quality for motion images. Color Shine is a glare-type panel technology that provides exceptional image quality with enhanced color density and saturation. With this new technology, ASUS PM17TU LCD monitors present clear and sharp images in their true brilliant and vibrant colors, making it perfect for entertainment applications, including watching movies and playing games. With Crystal Shine technology, PM17TU LCD monitors provide 500nits of bright and crystal clear video for everything from gaming and TV to blockbusters and graphics design.
