Asus's VK192T monitor makes communication easy. This 19" LCD monitor comes with a 1.3MP webcam. The bundled LifeFrame2 software lets you record video clips to send to friends and family.
Asus has included their Splendid Video Intelligence Technology so you can fine tune the picture. Five preset modes including Scenery, Night View and Games. It also comes with 3 skin tone options so people look natural.
All this technology powers a 1440x900 resolution screen. The 1000:1 contrast ratio is boosted to 4000:1 with Asus Smart Contrast Ratio technology that automatically adjusts the backlight according to the content.
Webcam's a waste
Pros: The display is excellent. The user controls are adequate. The styling is pleasantly feminized with little pink flowers around the bezel.
Cons: The built in webcam is terribly slow and lacks an integrated microphone. Speakers are adequate for voice, but not much more.
Other Thoughts: Unfortunately the choices available for a white monitor are quite limited. If you're buying this for the webcam or speakers.... don't. The display itself is very good though.

Really a 4.5
Pros: I bought this to accompany my future white MSI Wind notebook. I love the aesthetics. It's quite cutesy but that's fine with me. No dead pixels. I think it's a decent price. With 80% saturation and 100% brightness, the image is amazing.
Cons: A microphone isn't included with the webcam. This was very disappointing for me so I just bought a white gooseneck microphone. Also, I noticed the top of the monitor gets pretty warm. I wish that the ASUS logo wasn't on the bottom, it doesn't fit the overall theme.
Other Thoughts: This is a good purchase for me. I'm not too demanding of a consumer. I don't do any gaming so I have no insight into such qualities. The white cabinet is glossy.
