The slender LS221H monitor combines superb display capabilities and robust performance with pleasing aesthetics. Slim and sleek with the bezel measuring just 45 mm. Diamond cut corners and glass edges fused with glossy black piano finish chassis, with the bottom dressed in leather.

Equipped with the toughest diamond cut glass surface – 9H hardness-rated – protecting against damage or harmful pollutants, the LS221H screen features an anti-reflection glass that provides a 96% transmission rate and a reflective rate of less than 2% allowing users to view clearer images and more vibrant colours. Additionally, Light-in-Motion II technology built into the base gives off dynamic illumination from LEDs and adds ambience.

Proving that this beauty is not just skin deep, the LS221H is outfitted with ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) 4000:1 and two-millisecond response times to deliver sharp, vivid picture quality without ghosting. The ‘Aspect Control’ function allows users to select display modes between Full and 4:3 for real enjoyment and true-to-life HD video games and movies with image distortion.

The ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence technology automatically adjusts every image detail for visual quality optimisation – overall providing deeper colours, sharper contrasts and brighter picture. Finally, with five video preset modes, three skin tones and five colour temperature settings, users can easily customise the LS221H to their personal preference.

Other highlights of the LS221H include a direct wall-mount stand (the only TFT currently featuring this function), HDMI connectivity, and comes with a one year zero bright pixel and three year Australia-wide pick up warranty.
