Asus PW191 Widescreen LCD Monitor

 

We've evaluated a myriad of Asus-built products over the years here at HotHardware.com, including countless motherboards, graphics cards, notebooks, and optical drives. But to date, we have only taken a look at one of the company's LCD monitors, the...

Good Image Quality ; Zero Bright Dot Warranty ; Great Looking ; Better than average integrated speakers ; DVI and VGA inputs

Unresponsive Controls ; Reflections and Glare in some lighting conditions

Performance Summary: We were generally pleased by the Asus PW191. Image quality seemed good overall, and there were no dead or stuck pixels on the screen. Even if there were though, Asus' ZBD (Zero Bright Dot) warranty implies that the company will...

Asus PW191 LCD: Looks Can Deceive | Tom's Hardware

 

It did not take long for the Asus 17" PM17-TU LCD to become a favorite with gamers. Now the manufacturer has shifted into an even higher gear with the PW191, a wide-format 19" monitor with great looks. Unfortunately, its performance is not always on...

First the bad news. The touch-sensitive buttons are not sensitive enough, and if you change adjustments often, they are a problem. And why did Asus have to use the glare-filter technology? We know it's a general trend, but consider this: Sony, who...

Expert review by:

Asus PW191

 

Asus is looking to differentiate itself with its 19in widescreen LCD monitor, the PW191. And the industrial design of the PW191 is definitely eye-catc...

Contrast ratio, attractive design

Buttons, colour reproduction

Despite its limitations, this monitor is compelling because it has very good contrast. We think its best use is for watching DVDs.

Asus PW191 19in Widescreen LCD

 

Asus hasn't been in the display market for very long, but it's made an impact with the showy widescreen PW191.

Ok, I’ve been focusing on its looks, which for some might not be as important as features and functionality. In those terms, the PW191 is more or less up there with the competition - apart from a couple of aspects that I’ll come to in a minute. First,...

New Zealand PC World Magazine > Asus PW191

 

LCD monitor Replacing my fading, company-issue 19-inch Dell CRT monitor with a glossy-black 19-inch widescreen LCD by Asus certainly drew comments. There's no denying the visually striking design of the PW191, but good looks will only get you so far....

Native resolution on the 8ms panel is a decent - but not outstanding - 1,440 × 900, which provides a good comfortable working/playing environment for most people. However, those of us that like insanely high resolutions for either work or gaming may...
