Asus puts 22-inch monitor on a crash diet

It claims to be the "world's thinnest" LCD of its screen size.


Sharp may brag about its 108-inch display, but Asus is seeking a different claim to fame: The company says it is releasing "the world's slimmest 22-inch widescreen LCD monitor."

Regardless of whether the claim is true--we've made our opinion known about "world's first" statements in general--there's no denying that this monitor is anorexically thin. Despite an apparent typo in the press release, as Engadget points out, this TV measures less than an inch deep--0.97 inches, to be exact. That would be more than a third slimmer than Hitachi's 1.5-inch model announced barely a month ago. (Granted, the latter includes a TV tuner, but still.)

To highlight its svelte figure even more, Asus has adorned the lower half of the LS221H with leather trim. It also has a scratch-resistant screen, which may come in handy for the fellow in the photo if his proposal is rejected.
