asus_ml239h_monitor_side.jpgAsus today announced three LED monitors with IPS (In-Plane Switching) and VA (Vertical Alignment) panels in the award-winning, super-slim Asus Designo ML Series. The 21.5″ ML229H, 23″ ML239H, and 24″ ML249H LED monitors offer 178° of horizontal and vertical viewing angles that eliminate off-axis color shift to provide consistent visual enjoyment from every angle, making them ideal for shared viewing scenarios. All three also have a 50,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast ratio to achieve true dark/light definition through backlight luminance adjustment. HDMI provides an optimized HD viewing experience in full 1080p (1920×1080 resolution) for PC, Blu-ray and gaming consoles.

The Asus Designo ML Series maintains strict green standards. The monitors use mercury-free LED-backlit panels and ship in cardboard packaging consisting of at least 80% recycled material. They are also highly energy efficient. Users can expect to save approximately 37.2KW/h of energy while also reducing ultimate CO2 emissions by 23.6Kg a year, equivalent to planting 1.9 trees annually or two years’ oxygen for a family of four. An innovative Eco-Mode further reduces energy consumption by 55%, allowing for lower electricity bills. The slim and elegant design of the Asus Designo ML Series was recently recognized with the Japan-based Good Design Award for its contribution to quality living as a home décor centerpiece
