Introduction, Specifications and Bundle
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 a display and released the slightly larger widescreen we'll be looking at here, the PW191. As its name implies, the PW191 is a 19" widescreen LCD. In addition to the increased screen real estate offered by the larger LCD panel, Asus has designed the PW191 with a number of sought after features, like an anti-reflection glare type panel, built-in speakers, and touch sensitive controls. This isn't the largest LCD you'll ever lay your eyes on, but its feature-set and aesthetic are sure to garner some attention.

The Asus PW191 ships in a basic brown box, with nothing more than a logo, the model number, and a simple graphic running along the sides. Along with the monitor itself, Asus included a DB-15 cable, a DVI cable, a 3.5mm audio cable, a power-brick, and a standard 3-prong power cable in the box. In addition to these items, a quick installation guide was included with the PW191, as well as a CD with drivers, a User's Manual in digital form, and Asus' pivot software. This is a perfect assortment of accessories that gives users the ability to take advantage of all of the PW191's features without having to make any additional purchases.
