Asus' Designo MS: will sit well on a glass table top and beside a Herman Miller chair

The luscious Designo MS series is a collection of five 16.5mm thick monitors propped up by a spherical ring allowing users to adjust the display’s tilt angle with just one finger, a feature Asus calls "Ergo-Fit".

The top three models – the MS246H/D, MS236H/D and MS226H – all have a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, while the lower class MS227N and MS202N/D run to 1680 x 1050 and 1600 x 900, respectively.

Each model has a 5000:1 contrast ratio and 160° vertical viewing angle. The top four ranking Designo MS screens warm up in 2ms, Asus said, but the MS202N/D will take 5ms.
