The Asus VW196D is a low-end 19" LCD monitor that meets Energy Star standards for energy use. It features Asus' Smart Contrast Ratio technology, Splendid Video Intelligence Technology and a 5ms response time. Additionally, the VW196D sports a 3-year system and panel warranty, a VGA video input and a native resolution of 1440x900 with a 16:10 aspect ratio.

The VW196D sports an energy-efficient design, using fewer backlighting lamps to save more than 28% on energy use, while an advanced optical film ensures no noticeable drop in brightness or quality. Its Splendid Video Intelligence Technology enhances the VW196D's colour, brightness, contrast and sharpness while offering 5 preset video modes (Scenery, Theater, Game, Night View, and Standard) meant to provide the best quality in any situation. Meanwhile, the VW196D's 16:10 aspect ratio makes it best suited for business use as it sports greater height as compared to 16:9 monitors which are better suited for media use.
