REVIEW: Asus LS201 Part 6
If standard mode is activated, the skin tone menu selection (reddish, natural, yellowish) is not available. If you select color temperature, you bring up the next menu which gives you the choice between cool, normal, warm, and a user-defined value (User). In standard mode you can also select the sRGB mode.
The following picture shows the optimum settings for the best possible display of sRGB colorspace (R93, G85, B88).
Because each button click equals a percent point, the calibration is understandable at any time.
Here you can switch between inputs when the Asus LS201 is connected to two PCs simultaneously.
The purpose of the menu selection "Light in Motion" (on/off) is completely unclear to us. In any case it doesn't let you shut off the desklight, unless there's a mistake. Even the operation manual has no information about this function.
Nevertheless, the settings menu lets you change the usual OSD functions, such as the OSD position, fade duration, and language. In addition you can see the current resolution and vertical frequency and can call up the factory settings (with yes/no query).
Summary of Operation and OSD
The Asus LS201 possesses a rock-solid OSD and user-friendly operation despite its cool design. The independently adjustable picture modes are especially worthy of positive note. A few small points of criticism are the confusing color bars that hide the functions and change according to selection or deselection, as well as the OSD's somewhat slow reaction time.
Although the Asus LS201 is delivered with a nonreflective panel, the colors are not especially outstanding at first power-up; the "aha" effect that people know from true glossy panels is missing. Subjectively the whole picture seems rather bluesy with insufficient contrast; and objectively we find a contrast ratio of merely 602:1 in the standard settings, a far cry from the advertised 2,000:1 (dynamic) or 900:1 (static) settings.
