    ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS) today introduced the MW221U 22” widescreen LCD monitor, which incorporated a wide viewing angle, Trace Free Technology to accelerate grey-to-grey response time to 2ms, and DVI input with High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) support. A 20-inch widescreen solution, MW201U, is now available as well for those who require a smaller display. “The MW widescreen LCD monitor series is the logical step after the release of products with built-in webcam and powerful subwoofers earlier this year,” said Vincent Chiou, Director of Display Business Unit. “As the display market migrates towards widescreens, ASUS will introduce two more widescreen series along with the MW series in the fourth quarter, to provide a complete monitor family for different user needs.”

    MW221U and MW201U – 2ms Response Time and HDCP technology
    No more ghosting and video delays with the ASUS-developed Trace Free Technology, which accelerates response time to 2ms. Teamed with HDCP support, the MW series ensure video signal integrity and image representation quality. The MW221U 22” widescreen monitor delivers 1680 x 1050 high resolution and wide viewing angle. Its viewing area is 27% broader than that of 19” solutions. High-quality visual is guaranteed whether you are sitting to the left or right of the two new monitors. In addition, the MW221U can also fit two A4 size pages side by side, meaning ample screen space for different contents.

    bad things about this screen

    1. 16:10 - not widescreen enough so watching movies will still have a black line at top and bottom

    2. probably 16.2M colours and not 16.7 so picture quality might not be so great

    3. no HDMI

    4. not 1080p

    some bunch of chinese dudes in a huge factory no doubt make em.. like they make everything nowadays..

    if the price is right it looks nice piece of kit..

    it looks "budget" by its basic stand design.. so it should be cheap-ish for the size..

    There's gonna be lots of problems with 'Stuck images' i suspect. Especially since the monitor is accelerated to get the 2ms response time, this has caused lots of problems in the past with companies like LG (personal experience).

    I guess it's only fair to wait a while and find out how it performs though.

    1. Almost all Widescreen monitors are 16:10.

    2. Most people can't tell the difference, and the rest lie.

    3. DVI is good enough, I don't need sound being sent to the monitor, especially with it having crappy stereo speakers. How many computers have real HDMI outputs anyway?

    4. It isn't a TV.

    I agree with newtekie.
    Half the time you cant see the difference.

    I want to see a review though and see how it lines up with the other 22" out there.
    Plus they gotta price it pretty low since if they dont the Acer 22" might take sales from them since it is around, but a lil higher than $300.

    HDMI ? it supports HDCP ! wich is for PCs. HDMI is only a tv version with audio. I would not be suprised if it did suport it with right leed. but it seems some people just like to slag of new stuf without giving it a chance. ie what is your evidance for 16.2 M colours even if it matterd?
