BenQ FP93G X+ Display
BenQ today released the FP93G X+, an upgraded version of the company's existing FP93G X 19-inch LCD. The company maintains its claim that the display has the fastest response times of its kind, maintaining the 2ms gray-to-gray time of its predecessor. Use of the company's own Advanced Motion Accelerator to optimize the performance of the panel in the mid-level colors, where most users are likely to notice ghosting or other artifacts. This response time makes the X+ version an ideal replacement for a CRT by gamers or avid movie viewers, BenQ says. The primary upgrade to the screen is an improved contrast ratio, which increases from 700:1 to 800:1. A brightness of 300 cd/m2 and the thin 13mm (0.5-inch) bezel carry over from the previous design. The FP93G X+ offers both DVI and VGA ports and will be available later this month for an unspecified price.
