With its improved response times, the FP92W hopes to win the crown of gamer's monitor par excellence in its size category. But latency isn't the only area where Benq has made improvements; the contrast and to a lesser degree the brightness have been improved. Let's see if the challenger can make the grade.
|Diagonal measurement||19 inches|

Design And Finish
Unfortunately, Benq didn't provide the flash of genius in the design department that would have made it stand out in this roundup. The lines of the Benq monitor blend in with the rest of the maker's FP family of displays. Without being original, Benq is at least consistent - all these monitors, from the FP92W to the FP241WZ, have more or less the same looks. On this one, the finish is acceptable, but no more. The grainy metal-gray plastic surrounding the panel is not all that great-looking, but in this price range you can't be too picky.
The ergonomics of the panel is similar to its competitors'. It has only a tilt adjustment. The OSD is easy to access, but the side-mounted buttons are a bit of a handicap to navigation.
Connectivity is limited to a dual VGA/DVI connector.
