In an attempt to identify all of the ASUS LCD's strengths and weaknesses, we compared the panel with an LCD which is considered one of the best displays money can buy. Here, we chose to use the Dell 2405FPW which is 24 inches big and $853.60 worth of visual bliss. Armed with some impressive specifications, including a 12ms response rate and a native resolution of 1920x1200, we would soon see how strong of a product the ASUS PM17TU LCD truly was.
Placing the ASUS panel directly in front of the Dell 2405FPW, we quickly see that we are dealing with significantly less screen real estate. Obviously, the core difference between each panel is the fact that the Dell is a 16:10 widescreen LCD whereas the ASUS panel is a 4:3 aspect ratio. Although this standard aspect ratio is a limiting factor when watching widescreen DVD's and attempting to have multiple windows open side-by-side, the 4:3 aspect ratio is ideal for gaming as there are still only a handful of games that support widescreen resolutions.
