Labels: , , , , ,

Asus has just unveiled two more 3D-capable monitors, the 23-inch VG236 and the 27-inch PG276. These are both a part of their new Designo ML Series and they have similar specifications. Both of these monitors sport a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution, a mercury-free LED panel, a 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 2ms response time.

Along with these 3D monitors, Asus also briefly showed off their 24-inch PA246Q monitor. This sports an IPS panel and is intended for professionals. Asus is going to bring a new LED projector to the show as well, so look out for it. It'll be a small projector and it'll weigh less than a pound.
