Summary: The entertainment-oriented Asus PW201 offers superior image quality and an impressive collection of video connections, but it costs more than competing 20-inch wide-screen LCDs and includes a Webcam that suffers from buggy software.
Pros: Excellent overall image quality, from text to photos to video; wide array of video connections, including component; fast 8-millisecond pixel-response rate; stable base.
Cons: Webcam comes with bad driver and buggy software; priced higher than competing 20-inch wide-screen LCDs.
Excerpt: Widescreen monitors are slowly becoming the preferred choice, as larger resolutions and bigger aspect ratios of 16:9 or 16:10 provide a wider work area. Suitable for office, where one can view two document windows simultaneously, to watching movies in the native aspects, widescreen monitors have a definite advantage over current prevailing monitors. The monitor we are reviewing here today is ASUS’s PW201.
