This monitor from ASUS has a wide screen.
Its specifications provoke no real interest in me. Curiously enough, I have seen widescreen monitors with RTC technology made by Samsung and LG only. The other brands offer but ordinary matrixes with a declared response of 5 or 8 milliseconds.
If you’ve seen one VW series monitor from ASUS, you’ve seen them all. The VW193D is exactly like the rest of the series we have already tested in our labs. It’s got the same dark-gray case with a neat stand. With no extraordinary features, this exterior looks nice to me anyway.
Like with the above-discussed models, the stand of this one only allows adjusting the tilt of its screen. It can be replaced with a VESA-compatible mount if you want.
You can find an analog video input and an audio input for the integrated speakers at the back panel. The manufacturer must have decided to save on a digital interface and a headphones socket. The power adapter is built into the case.
The control buttons are placed in the bottom right corner of the front panel. They are made from plastic painted the color of the case and are accompanied with easily readable icons.
Quick access is provided to the sound volume and brightness settings and to the Splendid feature (factory-set modes that differ in brightness, contrast and color temperature settings). A long press on the Splendid button starts up the auto-adjustment procedure.
This monitor has the blue menu typical of newer monitors from ASUS. The change of design hasn’t affected its functionality, though. The menu still opens up on the Splendid screen and cannot remember the last changed item.
