Benq enters low cost LCD fray

BENQ, WHICH now calls itself BenQ because apparently North American analysts thought it was a bank, has introduced a 17-inch LCD monitor which it claims has high quality specs but at an entry level price

The company said the street price will vary from country to country, but an average price is around €599.

The FP767's spec includes a brightness level of 260 nits, a contrast ratio of 500:1 and a response time of 16ms, the company claimed.

A nit is not one of those horrid little eggs stuck in your hair, but a measurement of light. A nit is brighter than a lumen, and apparently is the amount of light from one square metre equal to one candela. A search on Google for display nits, however, gives the Headlice Control Shop UK as one of its sponsored links. What do the letters n+i+t+s stand for? Google is silent on this. Perhaps one of our readers can enlighten us.

Benq describes the model as a basic multimedia monitor but also claims these specifications give it the edge on its competitors. It tilts from two to 20 degrees, and also comes with a VESA approved wall mounting device.

Other features include auto calibration for vertical and horizontal viewing and has a key for automatically adjusting the quality of the display. µ
