I don’t know, but this one sure takes the cake down to the bakery to see the other cakes.
Anyone recognize this thing? It was the giant frigging monitor that ASUS displayed at the 2007 Final Fantasy XIÂ Fanfest. It’s called an ASUS PG221 and I recently decided I needed one. So, I bought one.
I picked up the box and thought, “This is an LCD? It weights a ton!” Granted, I’ve worked with some pretty heavy visual equipment before, but this one is rediculus. Then I found out why. Metal. Lots of it. The casings and whatnot are pretty solid with very little plastic.
Styled a lot like my ASUS G2P (My giant laptop, it’s in this picture and this one) I thought this would be as awesome as my laptop is and I wasn’t fooling myself. The picture is incredibly clear, very bright and does not feel like an LCD. In other words, there is no ghost lag. Being able to refresh the entire screen <i>five-hundred times</i> per second, it is sharp and is great for gaming. Included is a 15W subwoofer attached to the arc-bar in the back, once again adding to a very rugged style.
I think I’m in love. My car and now this. I feel great.
