Joining the ASUS and ROG display lineup at CES 2020 is also the ROG Swift 360Hz G-SYNC monitor with an unparalleled 360Hz refresh rate, and the 4K HDR ROG Swift PG32UQX monitor powered by mini-LED technology.
ZenScreen is the perfect on-the-go companion for business travelers, with a 35% lighter smart case
The new ZenScreen MB16ACE is an incredibly portable 15.6-inch Full HD display that effectively doubles available workspace when using the monitor in conjunction with a typical 1080p laptop – perfect for business travelers looking to boost their productivity on the road. Thanks to its ultra-slim bezels, the entire monitor has a slim profile, and it weighs just 0.7kg (1.56 lbs) and comes in at just 8mm thick. In addition to being incredibly lightweight, the ZenScreen MB16ACE also comes with a new and improved Smart Case Lite, a new case that’s 35% lighter than the original, while still acting as both a protective cover for the screen and an adjustable stand. The Smart Case Lite can hold the ZenScreen in either portrait or landscape mode, or a smart pen hole built into the MB16ACE can prop the display up using any ordinary writing instrument.
The ZenScreen MB16ACE features an anti-glare IPS panel that is TUV Rheinland-certified for flicker-free operation at any brightness level. The MB16ACE’s low blue light technology also reduces eye strain for longer work sessions, and the screen itself is wrapped in a precision-crafted solid-aluminum unibody for a sleek and stylish look.
A single USB-C port supports DisplayPort alternate mode as well as USB 3.0 input sources. The included DisplayWidget software lets users tweak the properties of the ZenScreen from a companion laptop and can be configured to adjust display settings automatically, based on the application in use, as well as auto-rotate the display based on how it’s sitting.
