Notwithstanding its rather humble exterior, the FP93GX monitor from BenQ is not a low-end product. Its price is quite high in comparison with BenQ’s T905 or FP91G+, for example. Why is it so expensive then? It’s simple: the FP93GX features response time compensation technology. Moreover, the declared response time of 2 milliseconds (on gray-to-gray transitions) puts it among the fastest monitors of today.
It has a simple black-and-silver case. The stand allows adjusting the tilt of the screen.
The decorative cap on the back panel conceals fasteners for a standard VESA-compatible mount. If you want to use one, remove the monitor’s own stand by unfastening the screws.
The FP93GX has both analog and digital inputs, and an integrated power adapter.
The monitor’s controls are placed in the bottom left corner of the case and are designed in quite an unassuming fashion, too. Plain rectangular buttons the color of the case and an indicator of power. Quick access is provided to the brightness and contrast settings:
This is a typical BenQ menu, which is user-friendly and remembers the last changed parameter. There is only one unusual option here – you can completely turn off response time compensation. The rest of the options are customary enough.
I’d say this model is somewhat odd – an expensive games-oriented home monitor in a very plain-looking case that would suit a low-end office model better. Gaming monitors are usually designed like the above-described ASUS PW191 so that the device would surely strike the eye of a potential customer. This seems the stranger to me since BenQ has had experience developing “image-making” models – take the 17” FP72V as an example.
