Asus enters widescreen monitor market

HW Roundup How to set up a low-cost Intel PC
Mon Jul 02 2007, 19:40
ASUSTEK IS entering the world of monitor manufacturing. We know because a Croatian distributor posted prices of a bunch of 17- and 19-inch monitors at around one fifth the average retail price (the Croatian Kuna - US Dollar ratio being 1:5 at the time). Unfortunatley that offer didn't last long.

Asus will take to the widescreen arena with the PG221, a 22-incher that will challenge the increasing number of players in this market segment. Is 22 inches the diagonal that will become a widescreen standard, just as 19-inch became the standard for LCD monitors? We'll see.

LegitReviews took a tour inside Kingston's factory in Taiwan, a factory that was opened 10 years ago. Hsin-Chu facility is not only manufacturing facility, but also has facilities for Far East HQ.

LegionHardware posted a low-end Intel PC buying guide, so if you're looking for system on a budget that carries Intel heart in it, head over there.

To stay in budget world, TweakTown posted a review of ECS G33 motherboard, based on Intel's latest value chipset, the G33.

HardwareLogic tested Alienware Area-51 7500 system, and as it usually happens, found many good things with one downfall.

Christian from BIOSmagazine reviewed Netgear's SC101T, a device that belongs to a category of NAS appliances. Sadly, it comes with a very limited operating system and networking protocol support, so you might consider good and bad sides of this device.

MetkuMods tested Camera Armor, an interesting product for today's world of digital cameras and users that include fans of Jackass (and authors themselves). Can Camera Armor protect your product? Head over here and check it out.

Bjorn3D posted a review of Tagan's foray into the world of computer enclosure. Black Pearl A+ full tower case just cries out to be combined with EVGA's Black Pearl beasts… or regular components, of course. But seeing water-cooled components in a case like this just calls for overclocking records…of course, for those that want for their computer to actually do something more than 3DMark06 and SuperPi.
