As we all know, there are a few items that are a necessity to owning a computer, and one of them is your screen. Most of us will remember back a few years when the rage was all about what CRT you had – mine for example was made by Packard Bell and packed a modest 1280×1024 resolution over VGA. Fast forward a few years and LCD screens started to crop up and fast forward even more and we now see the CRT to be virtually extinct in the computing world. So where can things go from here? There is always a way to improve technology and the latest focus is getting a far superior picture whilst using less and less power whilst doing so.

This is where Asus have stepped upto the mark with the VE228. From the outside, it looks pretty much like any other recent widescreen LCD monitor, and to the majority of people it is, but peel away the layers and you’ll soon realise that this is not an LCD as we once knew it.

LEDs are becoming more and more popular in the tech market and with their extreme light output from such a small power source, its understandable why. So to produce one of their latest screens, Asus have taken away the cathode tubes that traditionally light up and LCD and have replaced them with LEDs to give a brighter, crisper image which also allows for a better colour reproduction and contrast level at the same time.

Typically we see LED lit screens on the higher end of the market and more commonly in TVs, but have Asus been able to harness this technology into an affordable package for the mainstream consumer that doesn’t want to pay over the odds for a 22″ screen? Well that what we’re here to find out…
