BenQ FP2092

The FP2092 is in fact a slightly improved modification of the FP2091 as you can see from its characteristics (brightness and contrast are the only parameters that have changed there) and appearance (which has remained unchanged). Let’s see what’s different between the two models if there is any difference at all.

The FP2092 looks exactly like its predecessor: a dark-gray case (that’s better for the eye comfort than a pure black) and a silvery bezel around the screen.

The massive base allows to adjust the tilt and height of the screen, to turn it into the portrait mode and around the vertical axis (only the top part of the stand turns around at that, which is very convenient).

The height of the stand is fixed by means of a button at the bottom. You will find this useful for taking the monitor over from one desk to another because non-fixed stands (like in NEC’s monitors) tend to stretch to their full length with a terrible rumble on your lifting the monitor up. Here, you just push the monitor down to the limit and press on it a little so that its lock snapped in place. The height is adjusted within 14 to 27 centimeters above the desk surface.

The base can be replaced with a standard VESA-compatible mount.

The monitor has a rich selection of inputs (composite, S-Video, analog D-Sub and digital DVI-D) and an integrated USB hub. The power adapter is external.

You may have some problems with that power adapter if you’ve got an UPS. The power adapter’s connector is not of a widespread variety, so you will either have to change the plug on the cord supplied with the monitor or search for another cord. The only exception is the few UPS models that have ordinary sockets (recently released models from APC and other firms).

The USB hub has four ports: one at the back panel of the monitor, two on the left edge, and one is centered on the top of the case. The latter is meant for a web-camera (BenQ manufactures cameras with an appropriately positioned connector) and can be closed with a plastic cover.

Like in the previous model, the buttons are placed on the left side of the case and are not visible from the front. The button labels are only visible from the side, too. This is not convenient, of course. You have to turn the monitor round to you to see the buttons or try to find the necessary button by touch, which can hardly be a success because they are all the same shape and size.
