    ASUS on Friday unveiled a new ultra-slim 22" widescreen LCD monitor. Claimed to be the world's slimmest 22-inch display with a thikness of just 24.8 millimeters, the LS221H delivers a 2ms response time (gray-to-gray), a dynamic contrast ration of 4000:1 ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio), 300nits brightness and 170°(H)/160°(V) wide viewing angles. A little something unusual, the LS221H comes only with D-SUB and HDMI inputs in exchange for DVI-D. Set to start selling soon, the ASUS LS221H will be backed by a 3-year system and panel warranty and a 1-year zero bright dot warranty.

    looks good, like the HDMI port system, seeing as most 9 series (i dont know about ATI, sorry!) have a HDMI output on the back now.

    I had never actually realised how thick my LCD is, it's about 6cm, just for the unit itself, so that is mighty impressive indeed once you've factored in everything that's actually needed for it to work.
    Why oh why do they hardly ever give you side-on photos when talking about how thick something is. If they want to promote a thinner LCD, don't show it just from the front!

    I dont find "thinness" a feature, awesome, kool, or whatever. The only requirement is that is is thinner than the "foot".

    Other features are more important:

    • Colour accurancy
    • Color/greyscale bit depth
    • Response time
    • "Quality" of picture

    Seems like rather an improving these points, that COST money to improve, they come out with other marketing features that dont actually improve the value of ownership.

    strange though as my HP laptop screen is about 1cm thick... and not to mention the macbook air... thats seriously thin...
    why is this supposedly the "thinnest?" and inch sounds like a lot, sopecially when i look at my laptop side on

    It's the "thinnest" in desktop LCD's, not LCD's used in laptops.

    They also say it's the thinnest 22inch monitor, that also could be just a catch to make it seem like the thinnest.

    That's sort of like mine, it's mostly jsut because of the pixel pitch. My m1330 has a 1280x800 screen, my desktoip display is a 20" with 1680x1050. The laptop seems to have a nicer image, because the pixels are smaller, and on comparison with a friend's m1530, hers having the same 1280x800 native res, mine looks better. It depends upon your laptop though, especially if it has a very high res screen.
    There's also the big point of: inside that display, it's likely got the power supply inside, along with stuff to actually get the display to work with different inputs. For example, your laptop's screen only has one input, direct from the graphics card, and the power is supplied to it at the right voltages already in most cases, meaning a lot of the circuitry is no longer necesarry.

    These super thin monitors are great and all, but does it really does any good unless you're mounting it to a wall. My no-name Sceptre is the most beautiful monitor I've ever had: 24", 1920x1200, 2ms RT, 4000:1 CR...what more can you ask for at $320 :eek: I bet this thing will carry some outrageous price just because of that slimmest gimmick :shadedshu

    I doubt anybody cares about how "thin" the monitor is.

    If someone has the room for a 22 inch diagonal screen plus the chassis/casing, they have enough room for any other LCD monitor.

    nuff said.

    If you stick it to the wall, then it matters. Other than that all LCDs are thin enough.

    It seems to me like they just took an LCD screen from a laptop removed it, gave it a stand and ports and made it a desktop monitor.
