ASUS Designo MS monitors
ASUS recently announced it will soon release a number of ultra-slim Designo MS Series LCD monitors, which includes the 23.6-inch MS246H/D, the 23-inch MS236H/D, 21.5-inch MS226H, 22-inch MS227N and 20-inch MS202N/D. All have a similar design theme, inspired by 1s and 0s from the binary number system and are just 0.65 inches (16.5mm) in thickness. A spherical ring, called Ergo-Fit Technology, acts as a stand, and lets users adjust the tilt angle with one finger.
All but the MS227N and MS202N/D offer 1080p resolution, with the other two models reach 1680x1050 and 1600x900 resolution, respectively. All but the MS202N/D with its 5ms response time have a 2ms response time. Otherwise, the five monitors share the same 50,000:1 contrast ratio and 250cd/m2 brightness.
Video connections include an HDMI port as well a VGA input, letting users connect to both computers and home theater systems.
ASUS has not released ship dates nor pricing information for the Designo line.
