REVIEW: Asus LS201 Part 3
Scratch-proof glass and a refined surface on the circular stand.
The housing hangs barely 6 cm above the desk surface, which including the frame makes the screen 11,3 cm high, a height we found very comfortable. Good thing, since the Asus LS201 has no height adjustment, so you can't change the height of the screen anyway.
Thanks to a wide frame, the screen height is at a very comfortable 11.3 cm; unfortunately the TFT cannot be height-adjusted.
The ergonomics for this Asus 20-incher is limited to merely a tilt function and is thus not particularly luxurious. The tilt pivot allows an angle 5 degrees forward or 20 degrees back.
Theoretically the TFT can be folded back completely horizontal, such as it is for transporting. However, the pivot and stand then do not hold the display securely.
The external power supply keeps the housing only 4 cm deep; the total depth including the stand is barely 25 cm.
The tilt pivot is very easy to move but has a little too much play; the screen see-saws a lot while being adjusted. In general the Asus LS201 stand on somewhat shaky legs, due to the fact that the display is positioned a bit too far forward. The round stand lifts about 2 mm up off the desk; as a result, the monitor wobbles quite strongly when the desk is struck.
Not especially good stability: even when the display is tilted as far back as possible, the rear stand foot does not rest on the table surface.
There's no danger that the Asus LS201 is going to tip forward or to the side. But the otherwise outstanding workmanship is severely tarnished by this see-sawing stand. This depreciates the rating, because we can't attest to superb workmanship for this monitor.
