This one is interesting. The LS201 is not a wide LCD monitor. Instead, it is a regular 4:3. The pixel format of 1400 x 1050 gets you slightly more screen real estate compared to 17″ and 19″ LCD monitors that almost always have 1280 x 1024 pixel formats. ASUS is touting its ASUS Smart Contrast (ASRC) Technology that improves contrast ratio to 2000:1. The LCD is protected with a glass rated at 9H hardness that will prevent most (if not all) scratches. There is also a anti-reflection coating to reduce light reflection to under 2%. Finally, the title says that this is the Luxury Slim Series. The depth has been checked in two places (Asus website, Asus mini-site for its Luxury Slim Series under “specifications”) with a depth of 260mm or about 10.2″. That is pretty thick! Even Dell’s UltraSharp 2007FP 20″ with 1600 x 1200 pixel format has a depth of only 7.6″. Now, if it was a typo and the actual depth of the LS201 was just 26mm or just over 1″, that would be considered slim.
