BenQ Introduces Two LCD Monitors

BenQ introduced two LCD monitors: the 17-inch FP72V+, featuring ambient light sensor, EyeCare usage time controller, 8ms response time, and anti-scratch protection film, and the 17-inch BenQ FP783+, a refreshed version of the BenQ FP783, featuring 8ms response time, 500:1 contrast ratio and "smart design."

The BenQ FP72V+ is specially designed to safeguard children's eye and incorporates a series of eye care features, including a light sensor that automatically adjusts the brightness of the monitor based on the ambient lighting in the room and a timer that automatically lowers the brightness and contrast after a prescribed period of time to prevent children from overusing their eyes. The durable built-in protective film helps safeguard the LCD monitor screen from scrapes and scratches as well as helps improve the image quality of the picture on the monitor. The BenQ FP72V+ also features a detachable web camera, built-in speakers, 3 USB ports, and an adjustable height setting.

The BenQ FP72V+ has an estimated selling price of USD$399 and will be available in late December in China, Taiwan, Australia and Japan with European availability in early January.


The FP783+ also has a USB2.0 hub and an optional speaker module with SRS sound and a 300K pixel USB webcam. The BenQ FP783+ is also outfitted with D-Sub and DVI input connectors, offering 140/140 degree viewing angles. An integrated BenQ iKey button automatically calibrates the input signal and adjusts the monitor for the best display image. The FP783+ also comes standard with VESA wall-mount and Kensington lock support, so it can be used in a variety of environments.

The BenQ FP783+ will be available in China in December and Europe Q1-2006.
