This is the standard menu from BenQ – the FP202W and the FP2092 come with such menus, too. The options available are ordinary enough for that class of monitors. Quick access is provided to the brightness and contrast settings, to switching between the inputs and to the auto-adjustment feature.

The Picture-in-Picture mode is supported for the video inputs. You can set up the size and position of the secondary window and to independently adjust its brightness, contrast, saturation and tonality. There are no preset modes for either window.

By default, the monitor has 90% brightness and 50% contrast. I achieved a 100nit brightness of white by choosing 43% brightness and 45% contrast.

The same thing as with the FP2091, color gradients look striped on the screen of the FP2092. They are less contrasting on the FP2092 but are visible at any settings, save for the factory ones. The latter thing may depend on the particular batch because different batches may be calibrated differently back at the factory.

The gamma curves look no worse than on the previous model’s screen and are very close to the theoretical ones. The monitor reproduces the entire range of color tones at the default settings as well as at the reduced brightness/contrast.

The color temperature setup is as accurate as on the FP2091. I can’t have any complaints here.

The response time graph differs but little from the FP2091’s. The lines go a little higher in the right part and a little lower in the left part of the diagram, but there are no great changes on average. The matrix response time suits well for watching movies and for playing games, but the FP2092 can’t match the latest generation of matrixes with response time compensation.

Contrary to the contrast ratio increase from 400:1 to 700:1 promised by the manufacturer, the real numbers have improved but little. The monitor’s contrast ratio is better than 200:1 at the max settings only.

Summing it up, I should confess I couldn’t find any significant differences between the FP2091 and the FP2092. Both monitors are very similar in their characteristics, not to mention their identical exterior design. You shouldn’t regret your not having the latest model if you own a FP2091. And if you’re going to buy a new monitor, mind that the FP2092 is an average model without serious defects but without any exceptional advantages, either.
