We have taken a look at a lot of LCD monitors here at ThinkComputers. While most of them are adequate for all scenarios, none of them have been dubbed as gaming monitors. Well the ASUS PG221 is dubbed as a gaming monitor and we can see why just by looking at the specs, a 2000:1 contrasts ratio, 2ms response time, and all the connections you want on a LCD. Not only does it have these features it also has a 15W bass speaker, built-in webcam, touch-sensitive controls, and a cool lighting effect. It seems the PG221 has everything any gamer or consumer alike would want. Let's see if we can find anything wrong with it.
The PG221 comes in a larger box than we are used to seeing for LCD's, you will see why in just a second. The PG221 box does not have that much information on it, just a picture of the LCD.
Opening up the box we can see that the LCD is nicely protected inside. The PG221 comes with a lot more accessories than a normal LCD. You get a DVI cable, composite RCA cables, a 4-in-1 VGA, audio, microphone, and USB cable, power cable, support cd, quick start guide, and a cleaning cloth.
