The Good Pleasant design; integrated speakers offer good sound; includes preset brightness levels; calibration options.

The Bad Limited adjustability; cramped cable connectors.

The Bottom Line The attractive BenQ FP91E offers extras, including built-in speakers and image presets, but its image quality and adjustability aren't good enough for the $529 asking price.

BenQ FP91E

The attractive BenQ FP91E offers extras, including built-in speakers and image presets, but the image quality isn't high enough and there's not enough adjustability for its $529 asking price. You'll get better performance and greater adjustability from the LG Flatron L1981Q or the slightly blander Dell UltraSharp 1905FP .

The BenQ FP91E's matte silver-plastic casing, offset with a glowing blue power button in the center of the bottom bezel, looks soothingly space age. The side and top bezels are narrow enough not to distract the eye, and the bottom bezel runs wide enough to accommodate two integrated two-watt speakers; it has a pleasing textured finish. The six adjustment buttons and a headphone jack are tucked out of sight along the bottom edge of the display panel; minute icons etched into the bezel indicate their functions. The onscreen menu is easy to navigate (after some trial and error), and the I-key button launches a test pattern to calibrate the display when connected via an analog signal; it also functions as an autoadjust key. The Mode button toggles between preset brightness and contrast modes for movies, photo viewing, and standard use.
