BenQ FP241W 24" Monitor Review - Arguably the Best 24" Display Ever

 

The BenQ FP241W is a hugely impressive monitor, delivering brilliant image quality for use in a wide range of business sectors and homes. But its price tag may be prohibitive to some. We see whether it's worth the cost and how it shapes up against...

BenQ FP241WZ LCD Monitor Review

 

The BenQ FP241WZ 24" LCD Monitor is a hybrid combining the VGA and DVI inputs and 16x10 (WUXGA, 1920 x 1200) format from the computer universe with HDMI, Component, and S-Video inputs and 1080p resolution from the HDTV world.

Since we are just beginning to see big widescreen computer monitors crossing over into the 1080p HDTV realm, the FP241WZ is a good initial effort. Still it proves to be a better computer monitor than an HDTV, but then again, it is one fine 24" computer...

BenQ FP241VW 24in Widescreen LCD Monitor

 

One little, two little, three little Indians, four little, five little...Actually, I'm not referring to Indians, I'm referring to bits. Is there a difference between 6 bit and 8 bit color depth when using an LCD monitor? Technically yes, 24 bit true...

No speakers (user preference)

So is an 8 bit monitor worth the extra money and will you notice any differences? I was skeptical at first, but after placing a 6 bit and 8 bit monitor side-by-side, there are many distinct differences.

What a surprise! Between theoretical and practical tests, there is an enormous difference. We were expecting a technology designed by BenQ and we have found a derivative of an innovation first presented by Samsung. As a reminder, Samsung hasn't...

As if the inclusion of an HDMI port isn't impressive enough, the price is just amazing.

BenQ FP241WZ

 

The next generation of LCD monitors are improving things immeasurably, at least in a visual context. BenQ's 24-inch offering has been heavily delayed, but the final release model proves that the humble LCD still has a whole lot of development left

Proper HDMI support

It's pricey

The performance is there, if you're willing to pay the price

BenQ FP241W review

 

BenQ made its reputation as a manufacturer of displays at the budget end of the PC market. The 24in BenQ FP241W, therefore, fits squarely into that market sector – though, of course, there isn't always a direct correlation between price and quality.

All in all, then, we felt that the BenQ FP241W held up well against the competition. Documentation was good, and the necessary leads were supplied.

AMA Z heralds a new era for LCD monitors by eliminating ghosting and motion blur around the screen edges - for a clearly superior viewing experience with all types of video content. Furthermore, the FP241W Z's use of HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) means support for video resolutions up to 1080p HD. Now, without setting foot outside your front door, you can enjoy the very latest digital content - like music, movies, photos, and television - without compromises to quality. Moreover, Senseye technology combined with high contrast ratios not only allows the FP241W Z to display static images with exquisite clarity, but also ensure video playback that will satisfy the most discriminating viewer. The FP241W Z can serve not only as a personal digital entertainment center, but as the centerpiece in your digital lifestyle.
