Asus has launched the Designo MS series of ultra-slim LCD monitors.

The monitors, which are available in sizes ranging from 20 to 23.6in, are just 16.5mm thick and offer a full HD resolution of 1920x1080.

The Designo MS displays, which combine a sleek black front bezel with a peal white rear casing, also benefit from a spherical stand with Ergo-Fit technology, which Asus says allows the monitor's tilt angle to be adjusted with just a gentle nudge of a finger.

The monitors feature a 50,000:1 high contrast ratio, LED touch-sensitive buttons and a 2ms quick response time.

The 21.5in, 23in and 23.6in models also have HDMI (high definition media interconnect) ports.
