Asus MK241H

Asus MK241HIf you’re on the lookout for a new computer monitor which will be great for HD media, and or new games consoles, you should take a look at the new Asus MK241H or MK221H LCD monitors. I recently posted about the Samsung 2493HM and 2693HM recommending them as great HD computer monitors, and the new Asus models look just as good.

The 24-inch Asus MK241H LCD monitor has a full HD 1080p resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, which is perfect for viewing HD media such as blu-ray content as this is the native 1080p HD resolution. The smaller 22-inch Asus MK221H has a 1680 x 1050 resolution.

As well has the MK241H having a perfect HD resolution, they both has a HDMI (with DHCP) input which provides a single connection for video and audio from HD devices such as a blu-ray, HD DVD, Playstation etc. ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio) technology automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen to provide you with the very best colors, and black levels, which is great for media watching, providing a high contrast ratio of 5,000:1.

Both the Asus MK241H and 2693HM look great and feature a built in 1.3 megapixel webcam, and twin speakers. A high 170° vewing angle provides excellent viewing on the screen at a wide angle. Connections on the monitors also include a VGA D-Sub, DVI-D and HDMI. A fast 2ms response time, and 450nits brightness provide superb media quality.
