LCD monitors were supposed to free up our precious desk real estate as they relegated bulky CRTs to the local landfill. But with the quantity and quality of high-definition content increasing and LCD prices continuing to drop, widescreen LCDs are becoming increasingly prevalent. Now our desks are filling up again--only this time in width, instead of depth. Still, for many, this is a small price to pay for the relatively large screen area and wide aspect ratio that these widescreen monitors offer.One such widescreen LCD monitor is Asus's MK241H 24-inch display, which sells for a manufacturer's suggested...

Earlier this year we stumbled upon a widely circulated You Tube video (at least in tech circles), in which a man is seen ruthlessly abusing a poor LCD monitor. The protagonist starts by letting a child draw on the screen with a black permanent marker. Taking matters into his own hands, the man then proceeds to take a pen-knife to the surface of the screen, followed by multiple strikes with a hammer.  The abuse of a perfectly good LCD monitor isn't what struck us about this particular video, however. The unique element that caught our eye and set it apart from similar videos is that the LCD... Read more...
Earlier this year we stumbled upon a widely circulated You Tube video (at least in tech circles), in which a man is seen ruthlessly abusing a poor LCD monitor. The protagonist starts by letting a child draw on the screen with a black permanent marker. Taking matters into his own hands, the man proceeds to take a pen-knife to the surface of the screen, followed by multiple strikes with a hammer. Deciding that he isn't quite done, he gets out the big "guns" and holds up a crossbow. To show us he means business, he puts two test shots into a piece of wood. The metal crossbow bolts easily penetrate... Read more...
Last year at CES in Las Vegas, Dell previewed a "concept" monitor that definitely pegged our collective geek-o-meters with its ultra-sleek, clear, tempered glass design and super-thin, clean profile.  Back then not much was known about this 22" panel that popped out of nowhere, nor did we get a sense for when or even if the product would actually see the light of day on the open market.  Now, just a few days before CES '08, this comes in from the smooth operators over at Dell... "The Dell Crystal, much like its name implies, is the latest in Dell display innovation - featuring... Read more...

Just in case you like to skip right on down to the news, we’re writing to let you all know that we’ve just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, accessories, and performance of Hewlett Packard’s relatively affordable w2207 22" Widescreen LCD monitor.  Unlike most other 22” widescreens, the HP w2207 features a high-gloss BrightView screen coating for enhanced contrast and more vibrant colors and it’s also compatible with HP’s “easy clip” accessories.  Click the link below and check it out...

We've evaluated a myriad of Asus-built products over the years here at HotHardware.com, including countless motherboards, graphics cards, notebooks, and optical drives.  But to date, we have only taken a look at one of the company's LCD monitors, the PM17TU. There is a good reason for this, however, as Asus has only been selling their own LCD monitors for a relatively short time.  We found the 17" PM17TU to be a well-built display and praised its 3ms response time, but ultimately we wished for a widescreen variant with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Asus recognized the need for such... Read more...
