BenQ FP93GP LCD
BenQ on Thursday added the FP93GP to its growing stable of 19-inch displays. The LCD tops its predecessors through a heavily upgraded MVA-based panel that greatly increases the image quality over earlier models and most of its rivals. The contrast ratio is a far superior 1,300:1, BenQ claims, and is backed by near-perpendicular viewing angles of 178 degrees both horizontally and vertically. Pixel response times are rated at a modest 8ms capable of handling most movies and games, but the thin half-inch bezel is ideal for multi-LCD setups, according to the display maker.
The LCD is available now in Japan for the equivalent of $358 when bought through BenQ's own sales channels; prices in shops will vary. The company has yet to reveal plans to bring the display to the US but may do so in the future given its existing models. [via Impress Watch]
