great basic LCD 09/24/2008
This review is from: ASUS VW221D Black 21.6" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 5000:1)
very good price for a 21.6" lcd display from ASUS.
i bought this on the very low price+ big/instant discount + free shipping deal.
good color. no dead pix anywhere. very bright and clear. no ghosting on my moderate gaming with a x1950pro and omega drivers. ran ok out of the box. due to overall brightness had to reduce contrast and brightness level a little.
so far very happy!
this is a very basic monitor. no ports for game boxes. no speakers. this is a 5ms monitor--the new ones are 2ms and 22" .
although these things arn't really cons as it seems 5ms is plenty fast for all the games i have tried.
the built in speakers that come on these LCD monitors are a joke anyway--so you get some cost savings buy not having speakers that you will never use.
the screen being only .4" smaller than the new ones certainly isn't an issue for me and unless you break out the measuring tape i don't think you'll find the size of a 21.6" vs a 22" to be worth the worry.
the stand is sort of short--might not be a real problem though--
if your gong from a 19" or smaller CRT. this is going to be a big adjustment to the new super-sized 21.6" asus vw221D!!
new egg gave a great deal--delivered it in two days thanks to their nearby TN warehouse & UPS. arrived at my door in perfect shape.
if you want a quality basic LCD monitor, with a large screen for it's reasonable price. i don't think you can beat the asus vw221d @ newegg !!
