ASUS Rolls Out Slim And Elegant LS201 LCD Monitor

ASUS has introduced a new slim model, the LS201 20" LCD monitor to cater to the needs of trendy 3C users. Being the RedDot Design Award Winner 2007, this LCD monitor showcases an exterior piano-painted black chassis, fine hair-lined aluminum details, a unique base that exudes a LED light and a diamond-cut glass surface of 9H hardness for protection from damages or pollution. It also incorporates wide viewing angles, ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio) 2000:1 and ASUS exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence Technology.

The LS201 incorporates a half-thinner panel than generic LCD monitors to display an aesthetically slim style complementing the simple and clean-lined glossy black design. By a simple press of the side button, the LS201 can further show space aesthetics in different angles by being adjusted to apply VESA wall-mounted functions with the adapter. The unique "Light-in-Motion" LED lights on the base creates a soothing effect and distinct feel to the atmosphere while in operation. A rational blue light is activated while powered on, and an orange glow signals the standby mode.

The LS201 specially adopts a protective surface with the characteristics of 9H high hardness, which lets the panel be protected against scratches and pollution. The anti-reflection coating on the glass allows superb light transmittance (over 96%, which is 11% higher than generic glass) and anti-reflection capabilities (below 2% reflections) to deliver clear images without distortions. This integration is perfect for public demonstrations and usage by children without an additional protective filter. Additionally, it is easy to keep clean by just utilizing the bundled cleaning cloth.

The LS201 incorporates 1400x1050 SXGA+ high resolution, 5ms response time and dual video inputs (DVI-D and D-sub). The ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio Technology) provides the high contrast ratio of 2000:1, which can dynamically adjust contrast between black and white creating sharper and more stereoscopic images especially during video and movies.

Splendid Video Intelligence Technology, found exclusively in ASUS solutions, detects activation and usage of video applications and automatically optimizes image quality for the best visual results. Besides the five modes (Standard, Game, Theater, Scenery and Night), the innovative technology also enables the selection of three skin tone options for high-quality image in different video applications. Watching videos with computers and LCD monitors are now as good as on the best TVs, especially with the ASUS LS201's large screen.

Specifications:

  • 20" TFT-LCD panel
  • Resolution: 1400x1050 SXGA+
  • 300nits brightness
  • ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio) 2000:1
  • 16.7 million display colors
  • 170(H)/160 (V) wide viewing angles
  • 9H hardness protection glass surface (>96% light transmittance)
  • Splendid Video Intelligence Technology
  • 5 video preset modes and 3 skin-tone selections
  • Supports both DVI-D and D-SUB inputs
  • 3-year system and panel warranty
