Asus outs new LED backlit green LCDs

Posted in ASUS by Shane McGlaun on March 24th, 2010

We talked a bit about the cool Asus LED backlit MS238H LCD back in February when it was pegged to launch in Europe “soon.” The LCD has now turned up in Australia along with its MS228 brother. Both of the monitors have lots of green features and are LED backlit.

The MS238H is a 23-inch screen with a price in Australia of $599. The MS228H is a 21.5-inch screen with a price of $499 down under. Both screens share the same basic features like a 1920 x 1080 resolution. They can display 16.7million colors and have 10M:1 dynamic contrast ratios.

Posted in ASUS by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2010

If you’re looking for a decent budget netbook, the ASUS 1001PX is worth a look. It features a carbon fiber type lid and packs either Windows XP, with a 160GB hard drive and a 5-hour battery life; or Windows 7 with a 250GB hard drive, a larger 6-cell battery and 9-hour battery life.

Looks like the Windows XP version will cost about $325 while the Windows 7 version will run you $400. Both netbooks have the same specs otherwise.

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2010

The Asus Cine5 is a smaller version of the sound bars that are available. This model is designed not for your large TV, but for your desk. The Cine5 measures in at about 15-inches, with a typical five speaker set up and a 28W max amp. There’s also a 3.5mm audio jack for headphones.

It’s good looking as soundbars go, but sadly, we don’t have any word on pricing or availability yet, but hopefully we will be seeing this one soon.

I just mentioned that Asus was showing off the new N series notebooks this week. Asus is still best known for its line of Eee netbooks and the computer maker is showing off some cool new models.

The most interesting is the Eee PC Prime 1018P netbook. The little machine has a 10.1-inch screen that is LED backlit. The keyboard is almost full-size and has large isolated keys. The machine is also said to be the thinnest Eee yet.

ASUS introduces O!Play HD2 networked media player with USB 3.0

Posted in Media Players by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2010

ASUS has added a third model to their O!Play mediaplayer range, the ASUS O!Play HD2. Sadly we don’t have any information. Just the name, with no specs. However the photo reveals USB, eSATA and various forms of memory card reader.

Assuming that the O!Play HD2 is similar to the two models that have gone before it, we would guess 1080p HD video output via HDMI with networking support, either ethernet or 802.11n like the O!Play Air HDP-R3. Hopefully we will have full specs soon.
