BenQ FP202W V3

 

Affordable ; Wide screen

Limited viewing angle ; Difficult-to-use on-screen menu system ; Text appears oversharpened ; No height adjustment

BenQ FP202W

 

For the price, this LCD disappoints because of ho-hum image quality and lack of creature comforts.

Fast response time. Relatively low cost. Compact size and light weight. Good backlight uniformity.

Poor grayscale tracking. Poor image quality out of the box. No height or swivel adjustment. On-screen display annoying to use.

BenQ FP202W review: BenQ FP202W

 

BenQ FP202W

Good general image quality and gaming performance; features DVI-D and D-Sub inputs; toggles easily between input signals.

More expensive than comparable LCDs; generic design; limited adjustability; doesn't support HDTV signal.

The 20-inch wide screen BenQ FP202W features a fast 8-millisecond pixel response rate, but its motion performance isn't particularly impressive, and it offers fewer features and less adjustability than other less expensive models.

BenQ FP202W,

 

BenQ suffers from a case similar to adolescent development: uneven tones and awkward social skills.

Inexpensive

Splotch screen; poor off-axis; no ergo options

The FP202W was decent in terms of game response, but that hardly matters, given its myriad shortcomings. No amount of savings is worth the sacrifices you’ll make with this screen.

BenQ FP202W V3 monitor

 

The BenQ FP202W V3 is a decent, affordable, 20-inch wide-screen LCD. But with its oversharpened text, limited viewing angle, and frustrating-to-use on-screen menu system, you'd be better off with the Dell E207WFP, which costs less and looks better.

Affordable; wide screen

No height adjustment; limited viewing angle; text appears oversharpened; difficult-to-use on-screen menu system

The FP202W V3sports a black case with a thin bezel and a very clean and simple appearance. In fact, the only details on the front to distract from the images onscreen are a small silver logo at the bottom left and a tiny green light at the bottom...

The BenQ FP202W was designed as a widescreen gaming monitor, and in this respect it succeeds very well. Full 8-bit (16.7 million colors) support with 8 ms response-time makes the FP202W a strong player among its competition. There are other 20'' LCDs...
