Asus PG221 review

 

A bright display with some nifty features

Vibrant pictures ; Good audio ; Lots of connections ; Webcam

Annoying button sound effects ; Unnecessary features

A good display, but there are some unnecessary extras which detract more than add to this package

World's slimmest 22-inch LCD monitor

 

It may be the world's slimmest 22in monitor, but this unit still delivers reasonable performance.

Design, HDMI input, hardened anti-reflection glass, build quality, image mode presets

Not height adjustable, slight backlight bleeding, fine details sometimes lost

If you're after a multimedia and gaming display that also packs in a reasonably good audio system, the ASUS PG221 may be a suitable choice. While its price tag is quite high and the sound quality isn't stunning, overall it should satisfy many users.

Built in subwoofer and speakers, sharp image, great contrast, fast response time

Slightly cool cast, touch sensitive buttons are a pain

ASUS PG221

 

The ASUS PG221 delivers solid performance and a boatload of multimedia features at a premium price.

Good image quality. Lots of multimedia connections. Strong audio output.

Expensive. Weak vertical viewing angle. Lacks height adjustment.

Asus PG221

 

Weighing in at 23.5 pounds, the PG221 is nearly 10 pounds heavier than most 22-inch displays, thanks in part to a cylindrical 15-watt subwoofer built into the aluminum mounting arm and base mechanism. The 1,680-by-1,050 panel is framed by a glossy...

Expensive. Weak vertical viewing angle. Lacks height adjustment

The ASUS PG221 will appeal to gamers and multimedia enthusiasts who demand smooth motion performance and a better-than-average audio experience. Its lofty price tag will likely scare off users on a budget, though.

ASUS PG221

 

The ASUS PG221 is an improvement over its older 19-inch sibling and does a lot of things right -- the "all in one" concept may annoy some though.

1.3MP Webcam. Impressive array of inputs. Excellent deinterlacing. Good quality image.

Fingerprint magnet. Touch sensitive buttons. Connecting wire between sub and monitor. Amazingly bad presets for both video and audio. Light bleed.
