Posted: May 21, 2010 03:39PM
ASUS has unveiled a slew of new monitors today that are sure to appeal to almost everyone. The monitors shown today are the Designo ML Series LED monitors, the VG236 and PG276 3D monitors, the PA246Q professional monitor and an LED projector. All of these products will be displayed at Computex next month.
First up is the Designo ML Series LED monitor which seems to be next step forward in the Designo series. The ML series has a mercury-free LED-backlit panel that will help it deliver astounding visuals while saving you energy. It also features an Eco mode that can help reduce energy consumption even further, up to 55% compared to a conventional LCD monitor. The monitor features a crescent-shaped stand with ErgoFit II technology which allows for easy swivel and tilt adjustments. It features a 10,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio, 2ms gray-to-gray response time, and packs a Full HD resolution. But before you start drooling at the specs, please keep this in mind.
Next are the 3D monitors, the VG236 and PG276. The VG236 is a 23 inch model while the PG276 is a 27 inch model and both are 120 hertz to enable 3D stereoscopic gaming in supported titles with the NVIDIA 3D Vision kit. Each monitor features a 2ms gray-to-gray response time, anti-reflective Color Shine Technology, and 400 nits brightness. The monitors can connect through Dual-Link DVI, Component, or HDMI to fit any output your computer may have. No word on a resolution, but expect it to be 1920x1080 for both. Since it offers a Component connection, it seems like these two would be ideal to hook up a game console as well.
We move on to the professional display, the PA246Q. This montior is a 24 inch model that features a P-IPS display to help produce accurate colors and improve the viewing angles. It features a wide range of connectivity options, though no details were given. Also missing is the resolution which will hopefully be revealed at Computex.
Lastly is the LED projector which is a portable model since it weighs less than one pound. It features a plug-and-project capability and instantly powers on or off. It will work with any ASUS laptop adaptor which further reinforces its portability.
No word on pricing or availability was announced for any of the new displays though I bet we will not have to wait long to hear that information.
