Introduction

Now a LCD screen is a LCD screen but if you add a good pair of speakers and a subwoofer does it make it even better or just very clumsy? We got a sample of Asus PG221 LCD screen that we are going to share our thoughts about it tonight. The LCD comes with a subwoofer, yes I said a subwoofer and a nice pair or speakers. It is also 22 inch and seems to have some superb screen features. Enough of my talk lets get into this review already.

Asus has a nice color scheme on their products and this box is no different with the blue and black colors. You can see a picture of the product itself and a Asus logo on the top left. This sample has been at a few places so the box was a bit torn but the LCD was in superb shape which means that the box does its job when it comes to protecting the LCD during shipping.

On the top right several stickers are placed to inform the user of the screens main features, these are easy to remove in case you dont like them. This monitor has a webcam mounted on the top also to make an external webcam obosolete.

They have not revealed alot of when it comes to the webcam. The specifications say “Webcam (built-in):1.3M Pixel (Rotatable)” so you can rotate it and it is 1.3M pixel. We will check this out later in the review.

This LCD is equipped with a SRS Truesound system. I will get more into the speakers also later in this review.

    It does have a pivot, and you didn’t do a very good review of the image quality.

    ” While I’m not positive, I believe the mounting holes are VESA
    compatible which would allow for mounting using a VESA-compatible stand
    or wal mount.” Measuring the holes will put this issue to rest.
