- BenQ FP767-12 17in TFT monitor

One of the first to boast a 12ms response time, BenQ's 17" FP767-12 LCD display gets some attention over at Trusted Reviews, offering excellent performance for the buck. Unfortunately there is a take for a give in this instance, losing DVI connectivity and somewhat lacking color reproduction. Overall though, doesn't look too shabby.

 

The 17in TFT seems to be the display of choice for the majority of consumers right now, and it's easy to see why. They're lightweight, consume less power than a CRT, and usually fulfil the image quality requirements for the everyday user. In fact, you can almost gauge how popular they've become by taking a look at the current price of a CRT monitor. I mean, £70 for a new and decent 17in CRT is a pretty clear indication that the smaller format cathode ray tube is steadily being squeezed out of the display market.

 

Inevitably, manufacturers are concentrating on LCD technology and competition has become fierce - fierce enough for manufacturers to highlight any difference that their product may have over a competitor's. In BenQ's case, it's a 12ms response time as featured in its 17in FP767-12 TFT display, designed to convince gamers and movies watchers to migrate from their trusty CRTs.
