Asus has launched a range of high-definition monitors aimed at business and home users who want to view images and TV in the full 1080p HD resolution.
The T1 range provides the full HD experience with a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080, and boasts a Smart Contrast Ratio which Asus claims bumps up the contrast ratio to 20,000:1. The monitors offer four preset colour modes depending on what the display is showing.
The new monitors also include a hybrid TV tuner for receiving analogue and DVB-T Freeview signals, and includes all the most common TV functions within Europe including TV guides.
The range comes in 22in, 24in and 27in versions and, as well as the more common DVI and VGA ports, various models provide two HDMI ports, a Scart connector, component, S-Video, audio in and out, S/PDIF digital audio out and CI slot for connectivity.
A pair of 7W speakers with four audio presets are embedded within the monitor for those who don't want to use external speakers.
Available only in Europe for the time being, the T1 series starts at around £279, which includes a three-year collect-and-return warranty.
