ASUS VW193D: 19-inch LCD Monitor with 1440x900 The ASUS VW193D might not be the best 19″ wide LCD monitor out there but it should be suitable for a good majority. The brightness at 300 cd/m2 is sufficient as is the contrast ratio of 850:1. Viewing angle is limited to 170/160 but I tend to be right in the middle of the monitor when I work or play so it really isn’t much of a problem for most.

The pixel format of 1440×900 is a bit on the low side, but you’ll be able to watch 720p HD content without a problem. If you absolutely need to be able to watch 1080p, then you’ll need to jump all the way up to a 24″ LCD monitor (there are a few 22″ LCD monitors that feature a pixel format of 1920×1200). At just US$120 at after a $30 instant discount and a $30 mail-in rebate (expires 2008.11.02 so get it fast) with free shipping, the VW193D is a real bargain!
